saturday . . .


Where have I been ???? Well I spent the past few days preparing to head out to a weekend long crop!!!! I must say - I use so many different things while scrapping that trying to pack to head out to this crop was pretty challenging :) I was sad to leave my sewing machine at home - but I did bring a whole bag of embroidery floss & a few needles so I can still work in the hand-sewing :) It has been so much fun hanging out with the girls & just relaxing. Can't wait to share what I come up with next week - although I am only 1 layout in as of yet . . .

Going to go off on a tangent a bit - any Grey's Fans out there - one of the things I like best about the show is all the music I have been exposed to from it - Pandora actually has a Grey's radio channel - love it :) I have always been drawn to songs that mean something - I love to find out the lyrics & the meaning behind them - in honor of Val reminding me how I used to post a new song pick on each post back in the day I chose three to share :) You will need to pause the music in my sidebar to hear this.

Pick #1: I Don't Feel It Anymore by William Fitzsimmons & Priscilla Ahn

Pick #2: The Weight of Us by Sanders Bohlke

Pick #3: The Weary Kind by Ryan Bingham

On to some scrappy to share :) As always - Tara sent me this fabulous kit to work with for March . . .

Here is the March sketch for Magpie Club - she is running a challenge with it right now on her blog :)

And here is my take using gorgeous goodies from the main kit . . .

And a few close-ups . . .

Hope all is well in your neck of the woods - have a FABULOUS weekend!!

  1. Glad you are having a good time!! I can't wait to see all of your creations!! Tara's kit is pretty, and the LO you made is just gorgeous!! I just love it!

  2. I am loving all your great journaling ideas with the use of hand stitching! This LO is so lovely and such a sweet photograph. Love the Nook and Pantry in this and how you made the top and bottom borders. Glad you have been having lots of scrappy fun! I have yet to attend a crop because of having to figure out what to bring. LOL

  3. Don't you just love a great scrap getaway?? Have fun, I can't wait to see what you've done.

  4. love the kit! I to am so in love with Grey's music...and now I am searching Pandora trying to figure out where the "station" is...and I can't find it. Could you please leave me a comment on my blog telling me where...or hopefully I will figure it out! Thanks for the info!

  5. I am SOOOOOOOOO 100 percent with you on this one, Grey's introduced me to SOOOOO much music that I am in love with. I love your first pick!!
