National Scrapbook Day = Fun, fun, fun!

Well - even though I have been scrapbooking for over 12 years - this is the first year that I have actually 'celebrated' NSD by going to a Crop event! I signed up for another Fri/Sat Crop retreat in town with a friend. We had a blast... and actually got a lot of stuff done! I keep hoping that they will schedule one when I actually have a JOB... so I can work all weekend and actually be WORKING... oh well!? I had plenty to work on over the weekend! I only had 1 two page layout (with a pull out page) to scrap... but I worked on some altered items and cards too...



This is my friend Renee... sucking in those cheeks and looking Oh So Paris-like...
(yeah - that's hot!)


She is such a riot... I can't even imagine how well she will get along with the More Funner One?! LOL?! one day... one day... It's funny how we met (MySpace) and how fast we were able to click and become friends (immediately!?) - but I can't imagine going to a Crop without her!? (Plus - she is the one who keeps me in line... and won't let me print out my pictures?!)

Here is a Layout of our Tulip Trip...





I also made a couple of Frames for wedding gifts...




and a Mini-album for a Mother's Day Gift...






and a few random cards as well...



See?! It was fairly productive... and we had a great time while creating! We met some new people... and hopefully we are rested up and will not be paying for being gone all weekend long, sitting in hard chairs and forgetting to get up and walk around a little?!

Hope you all had a fun and eventful NSD... and that you are getting that rest you so deserve on this side of our own personal holiday!?

Scrap On!

OMG!!! I can't believe you posted that picture!! You must've had to "thinify" me!!! Your stuff looks great online, but better in person! And you don't have to feel like there are boundaries with my stuff, you goof! Mi casa is su casa!! (That means my scrapbook stuff is your scrapbook stuff, in spanish. I think. LOL!)

You mean Renee, that I can just take whatever I want from your Scrap stuff?! (What about if you are not there!? Huh!? What about THEN?! LOL?!) tee hee!

What do you mean I had to thinify you?! LOL?! If you would just learn to use your Photoshop - you could be as thin as you want to be?! (Oh - if only it were that easy!?)
