Thought I'd change things up a bit and do a scrapbook layout! I'm really trying to get more into scrapbooking again... it really is quite FUN once you get back in the grove!

This layout I did is a design by Judy Berry and its so simple and cute! I've inked all the edges with a brown ink and rounded my corners on the picture mats.

Hope ya'll enjoy!

Happy Valentine's Day!

I'm back from my 4 day trip to Padre Island! Missing it already, but there will be plenty more trips! Caught a couple fish too so that was pretty exciting! They were even big enough to keep!

I'm putting my sweet hubby in the spotlight today as he got pretty crafty with his Valentine's surprise to me! He was able to make good use of my Valentine's ribbon!

Such a great idea he came up with! He put either this ribbon around all the floating candle holders, which he also made himself.

Here's the delicious pot roast dinner I cooked for us:

Hope everyone enjoyed their Valentine's Day! Be sure to come back tomorrow as my challenges will be starting back up!

Until next time, happy crafting!

Scrapbook Pages

Didn't I say I was going to try and keep up with my blogging?... not off to a good start, lol. One of these days I'll get more organized!

Went to a crop this past weekend and was able to get 5 pages in my wedding album almost finished! YAY! Took me a while to get going, but once I did I was on a roll!

Now just have to add my titles, journaling and embellishments and the pages will be finished!

Have another card swap tomorrow evening and I still need to make my cards for it!, ah! So off to my craft room and will be back tomorrow to show ya'll what I came up with!
