Vacation Layouts...

Happy Monday!!
I went to a crop on Friday night with my "Chicas"
we had a GREAT time...I finished a few layouts I've been
carrying around for the last three crops (I had NO MOJO)
So, with ALOT of help from my friend Jennifer (she ROCKS!!)
I was able to complete these.
This is the end of our trip to Cabo. The paper is from a paper pack
I got at came with the world cut out!! I used my cricut
to cut out everything else.

I love the colors on this page!!
And it was truly a vaction bliss!!

This layout is really old....I just wasn't feeling it!!
This is from Sea World (way back in May!!)

Happy Scrappin' and Stampin'
I will be back later with my card for today's sketch challenge.
I will also be back to post a challenge we (croppin chicas) did.
We went to the expo a couple weeks ago and took some pictures
so we challenged ourselves to scrap them...Cheryl & Jennifer have
done theirs...I have not (and it was my idea!!)
As soon as I get a photo of Cheryl's and do mine I will post.

Cabo - 2008

Good Morning Ladies!!
Here are a couple layouts I did (these are from my trip to Cabo)
I can't believe how behind I am...I just have "NO" mojo when
it comes to scrapping lately! It's all about the cards...
I always said "I'm not a card maker...I'm a scrapper!" hmmm
I need to rethink that one!! Especially now that I have my
Bellas!! I can't get enough ! LOL.
This layout was pretty easy...I used some matching papers from
a paper pack I picked up at Target added the bazzill flowers and
chipboard letters I got from the expo. (for $1.00 can you believe that?!)
These pictures were taken the first night we arrived and had dinner
with my parents, my sister and her husband.

AHHHH!!! Golfing Cabo is like no other!!
It is so beautiful and peaceful...(wish my game was better)
I love this big chipboard...right now I'm all about chipboard.
I can't seem to get enough.

Thanks for looking!!
Happy Scrappin' and Stampin"

For today's sketch challenge I went a little crazy...
I couldn't decide which paper I wanted to use (I have sooooo many scraps)
So, I used all three and made three different cards.

For card #1 I used ctmh - let's get together paper pack level 2,
sentiment came from the dollar bin at Michaels.

Card #2 I used ctmh - boom di ada creative basics & level 2
sentiment is from ctmh - say it in style.

Finally card #3 I used misc. scraps (I don't remember who makes this paper SORRY!!)
sentiment is from ctmh - say it in style.
Have fun and enjoy your day!

Us - November calendar page

Here is a layout I worked on yesterday...
This is my calendar page for November. I was going through my
old papers and came across this black and white... so, I had to use
it! don't you love when you find something you forgot you have
and you just love it!!
It kinda looks like valentines day...but I love it anyway and
this picture we took on November 2 so, it is just perfect for
my calendar.
See you tomorrow morning with BSC54.
Hope your having a Great Sunday.

Today I Voted

Here is a layout I did for election day...
This is the first time my daughter got to vote!!
She was very excited and I was suprised to see how much interest
she took in the debates, props and issues.
There were many battles in our house, with family and friends.
I am very proud of her...she didn't just go by what others thought or
their opinions...she researched every single prop and made her
own choices. Needless to say it wasn't what other people wanted her
to vote or thought she should vote. We finally made a rule
"NO POLITICS" in our house.

I love the way this turned out...and I'm sure some day she'll look back at these pages and be very proud.

My lighting isn't very good today?! hmmm...these look
much better in person.
Have a great day!!
