More Layouts

Made these layouts this weekend......

This layout was for a "USE IT UP" challenge to use ribbon.

I'm not good with double page layouts, but I had so many pictures that I wanted to scrap for this one event, High School Musical on Ice. So I used the Imagine Book from CTMH for inspiration...
Here are some collages that I made on Picasa 3. All these pictures I will scrap (eventually) and since I am not good at double page layouts, I made these collages to scrap instead. :)
Us girls at the SD Scrap INN.
My son and his daddy....My very photogenic daughter!

Wow!! About to show my age.....

So today my oldest child turned 20!!!! Yes, I said 2o!! I can still remember the day he was born like it was yesterday. I started contractions at 7am. Went all day with contractions and finally went to the hospital right after The Garry Shandling Show (remember that show?). Back then we had "natural births" LOL!! Epidurals weren't just handed out like they are today. I was in HARD labor for 5 hours before giving birth to my handsome son!

This is my Lorrick "JON" Simon at 9months old.

And this is JON at 20! (with the Peace sign)


Well my husband randomly selected the winner of the RAK I am giving away and the winner is...

#12 - TRISHA!!!
Congratulations!!! Email me your address and I will send you out the RAK.

Thank you ladies for leaving such great comments! I truly appericate it!

Birthday Weekend, Layouts, and GIVEAWAY!

Wow! I had a fantastic weekend! I spent my birthday weekend at the San Diego Scrap Inn with 12 of my friends! The Scrap Inn was super nice! It was very spacious, we all had our own 6ft table, lamp, trash can, and comfy chair. They had tons of supplies from 2 computers, 2 Cricuts, every color stamp pad, pens, punches, and the list goes on and on! The kitchen was stocked with snacks, drinks and every appliance you can think of. It even had paper plates so we didn't have to clean that much! The bedrooms were great! We all had our own bed, no bunk beds! Everything was color coordinated with our sheets so we knew which towels and baskets were ours. We even go color coordinated socks!!! We all shared in with meals and I can honestly say that was the best thing ever! We even had left over food! It was a very stress-free weekend where "Memories were Saved and Friends were Made!" Of course straight scrapbooking for 3 days can be tired some. For those down times, we had fun with Karaoke! It is super fun mixing Margarita's with Karaoke! LOL Please,
take some time and view the slideshow: (DOUBLE CLICK)
