Great Weekend!

I had the wonderful opportunity of a weekend away with my BFF where we did nothing but scrapbook the entire time!

Our time away was at the Elmhurst Inn and Spa and it was truly a delightful time. The historic feel of the buildings and grounds create a lovely and relaxing environment and we enjoyed the company of the other scrapbookers we were with. 


I had so much fun being creative without the responsibility of actually running the weekend!  I got 3 singles, 1 double and 2 cards completed.  I know that doesn't sound like a lot, but for me that is really good!  I like to take my time and enjoy the process of creating, rather than just rushing through my pages to get them done.

Here is the first single page that I want to share with you.  I worked with pictures of my niece, Sarah, and my all-time favorite paper line from Fancy Pants, Life Is Good.  I love everything about this line - the colors, the embellies, the patterns!

I kept it fairly simple with some ink splatters on the background...

a banner with some stitching...

a title I cut with my Silhouette Cameo...

and some yummy washi tape!!

I will be posting more in the next few days.  Thanks for looking :)
