Did you miss me this weekend? I know I missed my scraproom!! I was away for the weekend in Richmond, Virginia for the Nascar Race. We try to go to at least one race a year and its usually our "local" track which is Dover, Delaware. This year John decided we should venture further south and we went to Richmond. We had fantastic seats although being afraid of heights was not helpful to me!! But once my heart stopped pounding and I could catch my breath, the views were wonderful! We had a fantastic time, stayed in a beautiful hotel (Wyndham) which I only wish we had some more time at, and saw a great race, even if the end was less than we hoped for. We are NOT Kyle Busch fans!! LOL!
I took today off....not by choice. They are pouring new sidewalks in front of where I live and I overslept and was unable to get my car out of my driveway! Thanks to a neighbor, my car is now safely parked elsewhere but I decided to stay home anyway and get some stuff done that I was unable to do over the weekend. Laundry, scrapping, dishes, scrapping, summer clothes shopping with the kids, scrapping, etc. And of course, some scrapping!! As usual, the day has gone quickly and I only have one layout to show. I did work on another but its for a Design Team project and I am unable to show it at the moment!
This layout is based on a sketch at Sketch Inspirations. Its a two-page sketch however I really do not like two-page layouts anymore. Once upon a time it was all I did! I used to be anal about my layouts flowing in my albums. Now I don't care about that at all! Its the memory and the individual page that matters to me.....not the flow from one to another! I pulled out some older Fancy Pants papers from the About A Girl line for this page. My stash is getting so out of control I have promised myself that while I realize I will still buy new, I must also start using some old!! And its not even THAT old!
See that nifty banner I made? Its from a die that I received in the mail while I was away for the weekend from Cheery Lynn Designs. I LOVE it and can't wait to shop for some more dies. I can see getting a ton of use from this die and they have some amazing doily dies I can't wait to try out!!!
I am submitting this to Frosted Designs this week for the "Polka Dots and Stripes" Friday Challenge. I used BOTH! Love their Friday challenges....they are easy to complete and lots of fun!!
