A Weekend of Scrapping and Friends
It's been a wild weekend around the scrap table. Me, Angie, Penny, and Karen attended a two day crop. It was so good to be with old friends and new friends. Friday night was hard because the crop went until 2 a.m., but we left about 1:15. I had to drive home and it was tough to stay awake. Well, I never really got any sleep that night because I was gathering things together "we" needed and printing a few more pictures. But I rested my head for an hour or so before I was up and running out the door. I wanted to get to the polls before it got busy. Yes, I did vote before heading out to the crop! It only took me 2 or 3 minutes to get in and get out. I voted! It's such a privilege that we often take for granted. My father helped in the fight to maintain that freedom and I won't throw it away. Sermon of the day! LOL
I did get 9 layouts and 5 cards done this weekend. I need to take pictures of the layouts, but I was able to scan my cards. The cards are for a nursing home challenge by Beth at Fiskateers. Beth is so sweet and really helps us all to remember there are those who do not have love ones visiting them or that they are not well enough to get out and about. I challenge you to make a card for someone in a nursing home, assisted care living, shut in, even someone who is homeless. Wish them a wonderful Valentines Day!
I made the cards as I was cleaning and "redesigning" my studio. I found left over Chatterbox from a class I took well over a year ago. It really came in handy and Chatterbox has always inspired me to try something new. I don't make great cards, but this paper makes it easy. Speaking of "Cleaning." I've discovered that I'm going to have to RAK more than four people in February. I'll setting aside the "good stuff" to give in my February, month long, RAK and Challenges. At the crop I also picked up some new Queen and Co. felt hearts. Four, to be exact! I'll be adding them to the RAK. I hope I'm able to pick up a few more latest and greatest to add to my cleaning out RAK. I'm going to have fun "giving." I hope you have fun participating. As you can tell I'm excited, but I've never quite done something like this and I want all of us to have fun.
