Productive weekend.



I made the little framed project (it measures about 2 1/2" x 4") for some friends of mine on Saturday. We were going over to their house, so it gave me an excuse to make them something! I love painting and distressing frames. I got about 6 like this (in black) at Big Lots for 50 cents. That is a great store for finding things to alter.

I finished the volunteer Thanks cards, but I forgot to take a picture of them. Hopefully Chad didn't give them out yet so I can still get one.

I also 'fixed' by Hello door sign. I forgot to take a picture of that, too. Oops. Tomorrow's post will have alot of pictures!

As far as layouts, I did two. On the first one (above), I found those great photos, and, I tell ya, they really sum us up.
We're like that all the time! And, I did what I think is my best layout to date. I made one called 'The Path to Park Manager' for Chad. It's actually a 12x12, too! The only thing is- it has his first and last name, plus all the places he's worked, so I don't know about putting it online. Maybe I could blur some of it out. I kinda want to save it to submit to a layout call or something. I'm so proud of it, and Chad loved it.

Saturday night, I went to a brand new JoAnn's Etc. Let me just say OH MY GOSH about their scrapping department! A whole corner of the store was dedicated to scrapbooking. AND- they carry some HEIDI SWAPP items! I got a bunch of chipboard shapes, and ghost shapes. I was dancing in the aisles. I'm sure people thought I was a weirdo. Their paper is way expensive, though. They had a few styles of Basic Grey, and it was .99 a sheet. I can get it for .70 at my LSS or online, so I won't be giving them my business there.
