Scrapping with Hurricane Irene

Stuck in the house with no power did give me some time to scrap.  I was able to finish these layouts this weekend.  The first one is a lift from the most recent issue of Scrapbooking Tips and Tricks on page 40 at the bottom of the page.
I thought it would serve as a nice overview of our trip and will be at the beginning of our album.  Here are a few more I finished.

Hurricane Irene

We have survived Hurricane Irene but there is still much clean up to be done.  Yesterday, the neighbors worked together to get one yard done at a time.  Here are a few pics of the mess.

Circle Pals

I joined a circle pal group over on the Cricut Circle message board.  I was paired up with a lovely girl from Arizona named Jennifer.  We will exchange scrapbooking goodies a couple of times a month and chit chat through email during the week.  I received my first package from her yesterday and it was full of embellishments and things that I can use to scrap not only our recent trip, but also Heather's wedding!  It is fun to receive things that you didn't pick out because it broadens your horizons as to what is out there for scrapping.  Jennifer has a sizzex machine that I don't have and she used it for the awesome hot pink and black daisies in the middle of the picture.  Those were the colors used in the wedding.  She also sent me some oragami dresses that are out of this world cute, and even a travel mini album that I have big ideas for.  I am going to love these three months with Jennifer!
