I've updated my 2012 layout page to include better pictures of my work from this past weekend's getaway.  You can see them up closer and much better.  I really enjoyed my time this past weekend working in the classes with Carrie from Prima Marketing.  She is a really great instructor, easy to work with, not at any particular pace and has a tremendous sense of humor!  If you every have the chance to take her classes I suggest you do so, it will be so much fun!

Beautiful Sara

While working from home today my niece stopped by to give her grandmother and I a visit!! This is a card layout using Martha Stewarts app

What's Going on lately...

I'm working from home today hoping to get all my packing done.  It's so hard to decide what to pack for a weekend away - and I'm not talking about clothes - I can go in my PJ's that's not the problem!  the problem lies with what to bring for scrapbooking!!! 

I always end up buying tons of new paper, stickers, ribbon, but I have a ton that I want to bring - If only I can bring my entire scrap room - if only!!!

 I'm going away for a 3 day weekend of scrapbooking!!! I'm so excited I never do a full weekend to a local place, I usually save the weekend trips to go to another state.   

I will be taking 4 classes from a Carrie a Prima Marketing design team member.  Here is the classes and pics below.  I'm so excited to learn some new techniques from a pro!!

I will be posting my work throughout the weekend - sooo much to do - I still have last Halloween and Christmas to do - so behind!

My local AC Moore finally had the Quilled Creations quilling for beginners kit in today. I must say it seems much easier than when I tried this years ago for some reason, unless it's just the paint fumes hitting my brain as I painted one wall in my room today purple. So here is what I created so far a tulip and a butterfly which was supposed to be a dragonfly.

Sara's Birthday Party Layouts - Last round!

Again these are so simple, I had a ton of paper I wanted to use and get rid of the stash so I can stock up on new stuff, so I used whatever was left over - some if years old, but effective, got the layout done in less than 15 minutes for each one - so much accomplished that is for sure!

Sara's Birthday party layouts - round 4

Here are some fun and easy layouts again - no thinking at all required here - just plug and play - simple and you get so much done in one 15 minute spent on a page - I actually timed my self - and yes I know some of these are styles from when scrapbooking first took off - really boring no dimension but effective (that would be the 3rd page below - stickers and all!!)

Sara's Birthday party layouts - round 3

Here is another batch of awesomely (if that's a word!) easy layouts when you have a ton of pictures from a party.  I used the Prima tool that Invlid designed in the 2nd layout below.  It's a multi-purpose tool for shreding paper and creating that 'antique' look.

Sara's Birthday party layouts - round 2

These layouts were so easy to create - I really didn't have to think that much about where placement should be for the pictures / flowers, etc.  I do have over 166 pictures to scrap so I kinda did a quick layout, simple, no-brainer type of layouts to have some funky colors and festive style to go with the event.

Sara's Birthday party layouts - Round 1

Here are some layouts I created this weekend - finally able to attend an all day crop - I really need to go at least once a month so I'm not that backed up.  These are pictures just from one party - my niece's 1st birthday party.  I have yet to even start any other pictures from her entire first year - I'm that behind!
