Weekend Creations

If you ever have the chance to go away and scrapbook with friends for the weekend, I highly recommend it! My friends and I joined my Aunt Debbie and her friends at a weekend crop in Gettysburg this past weekend and had a great time. There were over 100 women there, cropping from Friday at 6pm til Sunday at 4pm. Whew! Here's a picture of me, Beth, and Michele, surrounded by piles and piles of crafty toys.

I thought I'd share a few things I made this weekend, too. 2 of my friends from work and my boss all have birthdays today, so I made a bunch of cards. The first one is made with one of my favorite papers (and color combinations).

The second one I made using sketch#70 from Mojo Monday, but I didn't get it posted here in time to to enter it on their blog. Oh well - I still liked how it turned out, and I used some new paper I got over Christmas when visiting the in-laws in Florida.

This weekend, I also made 20 baby thank you notes for my college big sister, who's having her second baby boy in a few months. I made similar notes for a mutual friend and she really liked them, so I'm shipping them off to Jersey soon.

Finally, I did do a few scrapbook pages, too, and I figured I'd share my 2 favorites. The first one is from our anniversary this year. I just loved the Gerbera daisies Lou sent me, so I had to take pictures and scrap them (of course).

I also made a scrapbook page about my weight loss. I usually like the look of typed journalling better, but I figured since this was such a personal page, I'd hand write it.

Thanks for checking out my creations. Hope you had a good weekend, too .
