It's Been Awhile

I know that it has been awhile since I posted but life has just sorta taken over since my scrapbooking weekend with the girls.  Along with recuperating from a bout with the respiratory flu, I have been working on my year end reports at work and also preparing a curriculum for a "Cricut Basics" class thru JCC Community Education.  The class will be on April 12, 2011 at 6pm at the JCC High School.

Tonight I am very excited as I won a card challenge on the Bo Bunny Blog here is the link: http://bobunny.blogspot.com/2011/03/bling-it-on.html 

Bo Bunny does have some of my favorite papers and here are some layouts using them:

Great Weekend

It is Sunday evening and I am home from my scrapbooking weekend with a group of friends in Granada, Minnesota.  We had such a great time and it is just a little bitter sweet packing our gear up and heading home.  Despite recuperating from the respiratory flu that I battled all last week, I was still able to complete 20 pages.  That is quite the accomplishment for me considering that I am a very slow scrapper.....well maybe if I would spend just a little less time talking........here is a peek at some of my layouts.  I used Sketches for Scrapbooking as a starting point for my layouts.  These books are my go to reference when I start a page and can be found at http://www.scrapbookgeneration.com/Shop_Online.html   The papers that I used on my layouts were Bo Bunny Block Party and Olivia, Basic Grey Green at Heart and Bittersweet and Cosmo Cricket Garden Variety.  Hope you enjoy!!
