Sketchbook Class: Day 3

Hi my friends!

Well, I hope you had a nice weekend! I've been quite a busy little bee :) I have been running around all weekend buying stuff for my upcoming trip, running errands, preparing stuff and visiting with friends and family.

Yesterday afternoon I got to spend some time with two of my favorite people: Barb and Esther (oh and Suzy, too! Hee!). We hung out at Barb's house, chatted a while and attempted to scrap (although I feel like I just trimmed some paper and moved the pieces around. LOL!) I also enjoying petting and playing with Suzy, the sweet Beagle.

Actually, I was working on a little mini album with photos of the awesome weekend that hubby and I spent in the Keys back in June. I was inspired by the Stories of Summer series on Ali Edwards' blog (particularly Molly Irwin's mini idea). I am using some goodies from my stash along with the June Partly Sunny kit from Studio Calico (which, by the way, is a lovely kit and still available!). Here's a peek at my cover.



I also managed to make ONE layout with a couple of photos from that same trip. I used the Sketchbook Class Day 3 sketch for this one. Simple and summery. I felt like it still needed something when I finished with it, but I really like the graphic elements on these patterned papers.




I have a big week ahead of me at work with client visits and budgets in full swing! So here's hoping you have a wonderful, fun-filled, stress-free week...

Peace and happy scrapping,
Vanessa

I love it... I was starring at that seashell paper last night. I can't decide what route I'm going to take with my scrapbook...
