Scrap Happenings...

I wanted to share some more fun pages that I have created through Got Sketch 101. This class is really kicking my scrappy butt! Who knew there could be so many takes on one sketch! Seriously! There are some talented ladies over there! The first one I did here is with some pics that I took of Bryant last year on Halloween. He was a Red Sox player. He was a HUGE hit in the neighborhood and that scored him a lot of extra candy. Gotta LOVE that!

The next one would be all about my obsession with Tony Stewart . Oh ya, this girl LOVES the 'Bad Boy' of Nascar (and was so excited and LUCKY!!) to see him IRL!!

I even had him sign my LO!!

I had pre-ordered this back in January or February. Anyways it just came and it is so COOL! I love Elsie and her friends whimsical style!

I love this LO! It almost looks like the cover of my circle journal. FYI, I completed the cover before this even arrived! :-)

I got to meet Elsie, a couple of years ago now. Just before she became the great business woman that she is. Loved her class. We made this. Ain't it cool! Gotta LOVE Scenic Route!! My camera died that day, so I was not able to get any pics of my own. The sweet store owner printed me some copies of hers. I made this LO with one of the pics she gave me, along with a pic of my autograghed book. Elsie was so sweet and genuine. I am so glad that I met her! :-)

I recieved a little bit of sad news today. The scrapbook store where I met Elsie, is going out of business. Not by choice, but with the price of gas and oil most people can not afford any extras and she can not afford the utility bills at the store. This is very sad indeed.
Also, today I recieved my last Scarlet Lime kit. For the same reasons above, I can not afford any extras for a while. It is a bummer indeed! The kit is BEAUTIFUL as always....
I am okay though, don't worry. Hope I didn't bum you out! Let's end on a happy note...a VERY HAPPY note...

Sweet Dreams!!

Awesome layouts! How cool that you got to see Tony IRL?! I'm not a racing fan, but as a sports fan, I can appreciate that. I'd love to meet some hockey players. ;)

When do we get to see your circle journal cover?
