Layouts created in the wee hours of the morning.

Got to Scrapbook today!

Eliz picked Jenna and me up this morning and took us to our favourite scrapbook store, Scrapaholics in Mt. Brydges.
I found some perfect summer papers and Eliz gave me some photos from our recent Point Clark Lighthouse roadtrip. Together with a little stickles they made a perfect summertime layout.
Thanks Eliz for taking us. It was just what the doctor ordered. (and thanks for the photos)

Martha Stewart arrives in Canadian Walmarts

Just picked up a Martha Stewart doily lace scallop punch that Michaels had been sold out of for weeks at a Walmart Superstore at Hyde Park in London. $17.99 not a bad price. They didn't have everything out yet on the weekend so I don't know what is in the collection. (The punches at Walmart are light green and not white.)

Spoiled myself today

I spoiled myself today. Bought a new outfit and had some time before I was going to take Jenna out for dinner so I got a manicure and my first pedicure.
It was worth evey penny. Especially with the massage chair.

Road Trip Tuesday

I've worked so many hours in the past week I don't quite know if I'm coming or going. I do know however that tomorrow, Eliz, her grandaughter Giselle, Lizz, Jenna and I are going on a road trip up the coast of Lake Huron in search of scrapbook stores and lighthouses. I know we have a stop planned in Grand Bend, Zurich, and Goderich and will see where else the wind takes us. I'll post some photos when we get back.

Love what Jay did for her entry.

Spent the day with my 2 favourite kids at Bluewater Fun Park in Sarnia.
A little water, a little sun and a whole lot of fun!

Last one for today

This layout is one that we did at a Thurs. afternoon scrapbook page class at my friend Lizz's. Still have to add some journaling and a couple of their more casual cruise photos.

Finished off some layouts I had that needed photos.

I hate having layouts that still need photos. I did some while I was helping out at Memories on Main so set out to finishing some up this afternoon while Eliz came to visit.

Finished Got Sketch 101 Sketch #3

This is sketch # 3 of the Got Sketch 101 class.
The mats on the right side of the layout are hinged along the top so added 8 photos to the page.
I took the photos with my 35 mm camera so wasn't sure how they would turn out but I was pleased.

Spent the day scrapbooking

2 layouts same sketch. This one came from Heather and Dawn's new online stamp class at
Its the free school days scrapbook pdf.
Easy and quick to put together and a perfect place to keep those report cards. Thanks girls for the inspiration.

Scraplift from current issue of Scrapbook and Cards Today

This is the title page for our summer album. Sorry about the glare.
It is a blatant scraplift from the current issue of Scrapbook and Cards Today. Just love the publication and have used many of the layouts in it.
I won't give you the page number. You'll just have to go and check it out yourself.
Paper, rubons and stamps are all by Stampin Up.
