A Scrappin' Weekend

Last weekend I was able to go on a scrappin' retreat with my sister and some other scrappin' girls. All we did the entire weekend was scrap. Well, we ate a lot too. I didn't realize these girls were into the practical jokes-they got me good! I think everyone was "punked" at one time or another. Be ready girls! I will be prepared for you next time!

Anyway, I just got my latest Swirlydoos kit so I used that for most of my layouts. Somehow I managed to completely fill the trunk of my car with other items that were absolutely necessary for scrapping! Seriously, I had one mini bag for my clothes and toiletries. But, a trunkful of scrap necessities. Guess you can see where my priorities were!

Here's one of my Prima layouts. This is my dd a few years back giving me the "pout."

Another Prima layout with my latest Swirly kit. This is a picture of me at 5 weeks. Not sure if it was appropriate to title it "Angel" but maybe my parents still felt that way about me at five weeks!

Yet another Swirly layout. This is my dd a few years ago on the first day of school. I am no longer allowed to go to the bus stop much less take photos.

This is a photo of my niece and nephew during one of their many stays at my house so my sis and I could spend time scrappin' together. They just wondered around looking for Gary and plopped down in the neighbor's yard for a siesta. Aren't they just too cute?

Another Swirly layout using new Prima. This is one of me and my Grandpa Allison.

Ditto (Swirly kit) another picture of me. This one is in the PI.

Swirly kit again. This picture was taken in WallyWorld right after we all had our hair fixed up for Tim and Gina's wedding. I just couldn't believe that we were walking around Walmart with our hair all dolled up for a wedding! This is Gina (bride) and my dd (flower girl).

Well, that is all for now. I did more layouts last weekend but I will have to post them at a later date. Now that the kids and I are back in school it seems that I have no free time. But, I have sworn that school will not own me like it did last year. I still want to scrap and work out. Hmmm... can that be done while working too? Guess we will see. Thanks for stopping by-have a good one!
