This weekend I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to scrap with some of my favorite ladies - Amber, Lisa and Robin. I always look forward to creating with these ladies - they're always so inspirational and supportive.
In the 6 hours I was there, I managed to almost finish one page and get a good start on the second (both pages were missing items I had left at home and needed some machine stitching). While two not-quite-complete pages may not sound like much, that's some kind of miracle for me! I'm such a slow scrapper and even slower when I'm chatting and eating Cafe Rio!
I sayed up till 2am finishing up this page:
ARTIST | This little painted up lady is my niece Kylee. Among many interests, Kylee loves to create. She scrapbooks with her mom, draws and colors pictures, and when she visits Aunt Toni and Uncle Nate, she becomes a mini Picasso. I set up shop in the eat-in area of our kitchen (which has no table). I throw a vinyl tablecloth on the ground and let her go to town! I have a special box of supplies I keep just for her visits.
I love that one of the first things she asks to do when she gets here is paint! From the looks of the mess, she creates in the same manner her Aunt does - although I don't usually get quite that much paint on my face! I wish I had captured photos of her hands and feet as well...the were even more painty than her face!
I wrapped the second page up this afternoon:
OH WHAT A SIGHT | While my sister, niece and nephew were here, we took a day trip to the Grand Canyon - there will be plenty more pages and details on the trip over the next few weeks. These are two of my favorite snapshots of Nate and me.
If you're wondering why you're seeing so many pages using Sassafras lately, it's because A) They're one of my favorite manufacturers, and B) I'm forcing myself to use up my current stash before I buy anything new!
What creative things did you do this weekend? I'd love to hear!
