This is a picture of my mother's good friend. She met her at nursing school and she is the most wonderful person.
I used some bazzill cardstock for the green and the patterned paper I purchased at a dollar store. I stitched the Nurse onto the layout using Scapper's floss by Karen Foster. The date is a font called Recess which was an Accucut die provided by my LSS. The envelope was made from a paper flair envelope template. My friend gave me the ribbon (or I picked it up from her stash to use LOL). The flourish stamps on the nurse title are Studio G dollar stamps found at Michaels. Oh and this is a 8 X 8 page. I usually scrap 12 x 12 but I like this format too.
I can't believe this is all I accomplished that evening. But take into account socializing, eating (we all brought something to share), shopping ( I didn't purchase anything because I couldn't find what I wanted) and organizing. I do however love the outcome of this layout. My mom asked me to do a small album for her friend as a gift.
O.K. I did stay until Midnight got home and went to bed. I had the most horrible night's sleep. It's was terrible! I get up at 6 am and walk around my neighborhood and I did this and went to work. That afternoon I went to lunch (I went for Thai food) and did a bit of shopping at TJ Maxx. While shopping my stomach starting to bother me. I finished my purchases and hurried back to the office where I spent too much time in the bathroom (if you get my drift). I ended up leaving the office a bit early. I believe this happened because of my lack of sleep and spicy food I ate for lunch (which was very good). I will not do the midnight scrap evening again if I go to work the next day.
But back to more pleasant things. I think I am going to have a recipe day each week. I like to cook (or maybe I just love eating and cooking is a great way to get what I want for cheap). I had a cooking club at my old job and it was so much fun! We had many people of varied ethnic backgrounds to join and share great recipes. I learned about so many cool dishes! So starting next week I will begin a blog entry dedicated to a great recipe. It will be called Tasteful Thursdays! Stay tuned!
As for my crocheting project it is coming along very nicely! I am almost through with my second skein of yarn. I am confused now on how long to make it. I think I will show my Mom and ask her how long she believes it should be. It's pretty wide already so length is now my concern. I will post a picture of it the next time I update.
I hope everyone has a blessed day and wonderful week!
