Once I got to the retreat and unloaded, I was on a mission to get several things done. Many of my To Do's were to get ahead on some projects - upcoming Stamp of the Month artwork, Workshops on the Go and more. But I also brought along some personal things I wanted to scrapbook. I rarely get time to scrapbook for myself anymore. Even though I use my pictures for my Workshop pages, still, I rarely sit down and just do whatever I want!
I wanted to share a few layouts I made. The first 2 layouts I used my VERY FAVORITE paper - Stella (X7147B). I found pictures from our family reunion we had last September right before I left for the retreat and realized that they would be perfect for this paper!
I used the Stella Canvas Shapes (X7147C) on this layout and added some of the Bohemian Assortment (Z1687).
Here is another layout - This is one of my 'go to' sketches that I love to use. I used words from the zip strip to compliment my right page layout. They were perfect for my theme.
Next, I had pictures from my daughter's sorority formal I wanted to scrapbook. I used the Florentine paper (X7153B) for this layout. I still want to add more embellishing but haven't had a chance to sit down and finish it yet. But I wanted to share it anyway. I love the sparkle flourish on the left page. This is the from the Sparkle Flourishes set (Z1708). I also used the Timeless Charms (Z1689) along with another Bohemian Assortment! "beautiful" was stamped with the new Keepsake E-size alphabet (E1024). I love how you can stamp the letters into one flowing word. Again, I used the zip strips. This time I used them as a border for my 'beautiful' title.
I have 2 more layouts to share but will hold those off to share those a little later. But that is all for now. I haven't created one single thing since I've been home - life got REALLY BUSY. But hopefully I'll make it back to my scraproom soon.
If you live anywhere near Tennessee - check out Petticoat Junction. It is a fun place for a scrapping good time with friends!
