I spent this past weekend at a cottage on a lake with two lovely scrapbooking buddies! Probably not the best weekend for us to go as we were expecting a storm on Saturday. The forcast indicated that the storm would be down graded to a post tropical storm....wind and some rain but nothing significant. The forcast was wrong....we had winds that topped 140 kms and lasted for hours. We lost power mid-afternoon on Saturday and it was still out when we left Sunday evening. We ate potato chips for supper and washed it down with a little wine. We had lanterns as well so all was good. The drive home Sunday was like going through a war zone....trees down on power lines and across the road, branches and leaves littering yards and roads. Such a destructive storm, but the three of us hunkered down and weathered it together. Needless to say, we didn't get a lot of scrapbooking done, but some! And we had a blast!
This layout is the layout my hostess club did last month. We were using Jubilee paper and I hated to cover up the patterns so I chose to use the one pattern and cut out the center. When I was finished you couldn't even see the seam where I started to cut, nor could the girls! We used some old-school tools like a paper crimper and we embossed the craft paper with the Dots embossing folder from CTMH. Minimal stamping on this layout but we all loved it!
