Girls Weekend 2011

I am amazed at how little I got scrapped this year during our annual girls trip.  I did however get in a good bit of relaxing, chatting, and just being with my girls.  The four layouts I did actually came together pretty easy once I finally got to work.  Especially easy was the kit from Scrapbook Generation (ya know, one of the many kits that I won from Sketch Support!)  My camera did not want to cooperate, so these pics do not do justice at all, but if you click on the image it enlarges so you can see more of the detail.

"Sweet Cupcakes"

One of the kits that I won from Sketch Support :o)

I did this layout in record time!  Especially for me, who tends to take days flip-flopping embellies around and making sure it's just right, lol!  I think it took me about 20-25 minutes, including the time it took me to decide which pics to use!  I will definitely be picking up more of these kits!

"Pajama Party"

A quickie layout that kinda has a funny story, let' see if I remember it correctly... Jodi did that tree out of ribbon and I though it was so cute and I scraplifted it from her, then she liked my sketch and scraplifted that from me (even though I copied from a sketch somewhere, lol.)  Just goes to show that you never really know if your "idea" was really yours or just a distant memory of something you saw once upon a time!  :o) 

"Feeding Frenzy"

This layout has been in the works for awhile, mostly becuase I need Granny's help.  I made the layout back in February! but wanted to add the koi and water lily and just knew that Granny could do a much better job than me or anything on my cricut.  Boy was that right!  She hand cut the koi based off a clipart I saw online and lord only knows how she made those flowers.  She has been making tons of flowers lately, so she may have the info on her blog

"My Deer"

This was another layout that got passed around and scraplifted :o)  I actually made that deer using my Cricut (can't remember last time poor little Pinky got used!) and just inked the hooves and antlers darker instead or double-cutting (a little lazy, but it worked).  The title was a gift from Jodi... she brought all of us a complete set of chipboard letters that she cut with her new Accucut Apricot font!  Soooo want more of those, or better yet would love to just buy my own Accucut but I will just keep dreaming ;o)

Once again, your layouts are amazing!! I love looking at them, they have all the elements I love on a scrapbook page...journaling, dates, lots of photos and just the right amount of embellishments and pattern paper! Cute titles too!!
