Friends

Hello everyone!! I survived the end of the school year and my neices wedding and I actually had time to do a LO that was just for fun!! I love having my summers off!!

This LO is of Lauren with her friends at her Valentine's Party this year at school. They made the most lovely tissue paper flowers that all the girls insisted on wearing in their hair!! I used the sketch from Stuck On U Sketches this week... and I have to say that I totally loved it!! It was so easy to play with... I will probably have to use this one again!!
And because I was feeling really crazy... I decided to participate in a site I have never played along with before... Scrap Our Stash! Their challenge this month is stitching!! So... I actually got out the sewing machine (now I have used it 2 whole times!! I am on a roll!! LOL!!) I did a little zigzag action up the side and across the top! I really do like the way it looks... not sure why I don't do it more often!!

I hope you are all having a fabulous week!! Thanks for stopping by!!!
Barb :)

Hi, Barb, so glad you could play along with us this week! Love your stitching and your paper is fab! I'm jealous of your time off in the summer but I guess all job have their pros and cons! Keep those gorgeous pages coming!

hellllllllo!
you know how much I am crossing my fingers that once school is done (which is tomorrow) and we are home from vacation, that I can get back to just chilling and scrapping...I feel like everything has been so complicated!

well I adore this LO and was just thinking about the whole sewing thing and thinking I should take up my family on them giving me their sewing machine...just will have to figure out how the heck to use it! LOL! I think this is great, I really like your paper choice and the 3 different colors for matting (red, blue and the tan).
