First a recap of my scrappin' weekend with the girls - I had a great time with my buddies, but it was one of those weekends --- things were just a bit off and I had my share of craziness...
-I lost my credit card - who knows where it is.....
-Spilt my full extra hot starbucks latte on the floor of my buddies car....
-Lost my favorite scissors...
-Couldn't get in the groove and did a lot of sitting around and staring at my stash
-Had no internet access and very bad phone reception...
-Found out that my son broke his heel...bummed me out all day
-I completed 20 layouts, 17 cards, and 2 altered items
-Ate some super good food and snacks -- all with NO calories in them
- Found my scissors!
-Laughed, cried, and fellowshipped with my new and old friends and that made it ALL worth it!
Love all my buddies who are there for me - thanks friends!
See that look on Tenaya's face? We threw her a surprise baby shower - it was so much fun!
When we get together, we always do some fun challenges and games (usually at 11pm to wake us back up!) --- this year in addition to a Round Robin and the Grab Bag game, we played:
Bossy Scrapper --- someone creates a list of 8-10 items and then gives you them one every 5 minutes while you are creating. Your finished layout has to have all the items visible on it! Here are the 2 I completed during Bossy Scrapper (btw - they are my favorite layouts of the weekend!)
The 8 requirements for the first one were:
you had to use two different fonts, a punch, bling, twine, sticker, something from the person on your left, stitching, and a shape:
The 8 requirements for the second one were: a sticker, a doily, a flower, fabric, something vintage, a pocket, cardstock and something borrowed from someone across the room:
I'll be back later today with some more scrappiness and some fun reminders!
