Anyway Saturday I spent the day at Windy City Scrapbooks with the ladies of the Mocha Memories Scrapbook Club. This was my first time meeting these wonderful ladies in person. I had a very good time. I also had a very productive day. We scrapped from 10am to 6pm and I worked on five layouts. I have very little more to do to one of them but I finished this small album for my mother to give as a gift to her friend. Here are some of the pages
This is my mother's friend with her husband. They are a lovely couple. Very nice and outgoing. They stay busy! I used all the same things as the above layout plus my script alphabet for the letters. I also inked the edges. There is a little chipboard I added too.
This is a bit of a scraplift from another layout I have made from a TAC class I took from my friend Marisa. I loved the layout and I thought I could crop the photos to make an 8 X 8 layout. I think it turned out well.
My Mom isn't the greatest of photographers. I tried to hide all the unnecessary space with some cardstock and I think it came out pretty good. I should have inked the edges in hindsight. But overall I think it turned out well.
This is all but one of my layouts completed on Saturday. I didn't post the last one because it needs a little something. As soon as I complete it I will post my layout.
Here is a picture of the Mocha Memories ladies we took at the store. If you are ever in Chicago and you scrapbook you want to make sure you visit this store! I spent like $76 there. I was so bad. But alas I did not beat my friend Kim. She knows she is a shopaholic. It must be nice.
On Sunday I went to church and visited with my Mom. It was a nice and restful day. My aunt came by and we went out and came back and relaxed. By the time I arrived home I was ready for bed.
So stay tuned for more crocheted projects, Tasteful Thursdays, scrapbook layouts and possibly some personal adventures.
