Last Saturday, I had a great time w/Give Me Time Retreats' group of scrappers. Those ladies are so fun & very dedicated to their craft. Some stay up til all hours of the night...scrappin' the days & nights away.
Thankfully, most take a break to do a Make & Take w/Stampin' Up's latest & greatest. They've asked me over the past two years to simplify my layouts', especially in regards to the number of steps, so that they can still come out w/great pages while getting back to what they came their for...power scrappin.
Here's what I came up with...
My cheif time saver was using the Stampin' Around wheel to make our own, cordinating background paper, using the Old Olive Ink Cartridge & Cupcakes wheel. It's sooo cute! Also, you already know one of my favs is the Simple Bday Thanks Stamp (One of the SU Bday stamps on Special in October!) & Top Note Die. So, you could say this layout has all of my favorite elements....for now...Newbies are just arriving, so I'll be posting a new love shortly, for sure ;)

P.S. Sorry for the time between posts. I've had a really, really bad cold. I've been calling it Bronchitis, although never got it diagnosed since I've had it so many times, I knew it was time to step up my asthma inhalers & rest as much as possible. Which I did. I slept 5 hours on Tuesday, while the kids were at school, managed through Wednesday, because it was Quintin's 6th bday, and slept as much as I could the other days. Feeling much better & hoping to dive into the World Card Making Day Challenges over on SCS. I'll post my creations as I go, later today. It's a little bit grey today, so what a great excuse to stay in and stamp!
