(And by that I mean all 3 of you who read this ;D)
What an awesome time we had last night.
I managed to do 6 layouts, that's because I decided I was going to paint, distress, stamp, ink etc etc....... hey there were no kids around so I did not have to rush to do a layout. Tamrod on the other hand did 14 layouts, I think she had little elf's under her table helping her LOL and Amanda did 8, she was like a mad woman. I realized something last night, first and foremost we are mothers and wives and we will do anything for our families but we also need to do a little something for ourselves if not we end up losing ourselves . So I am extremely thankful to my husband for taking care of our girls after a hard day at work yesterday.
Alright there, enough with my rambling, here are 2 of the layouts, I still have to journal on the other ones. I am not strong on journaling so I tend to leave it 'till the end. I am however working on getting better at it.
This first one is of myself and La Verne at a TIM HOLTZ class on 06/01/08 at Scrapbook Central, she as you know is my scrapbooking idol, I met her this year at SC and she has pushed me to think outside the box and always has such great things to say about my work, even when I think it kind it blows.
This paper is from an April Studio Calico kit that she introduced me to back then, here's a secret... that little deer creeps her out!
And of course I had to do a beach layout, come on................ we live in South Florida and YES!!! We love the beach.
THIS PICTURE DOES NOT DO THE LO JUSTICE
This darn layout took for over, I tried 2 other different styles and after painting papers placing pictures in every which way, I decided on this one. The pictures tell the my story but I am going to journal on the back.
Hope you like them and until the next time, take care of yourselves.
