JUST Fab-U-Lous!

Hi Scrappy Friends!

I hope you are all enjoying your summer!

I had a chance to get really scrappy with my friends at another Scrap-a-Doodle Doo Weekend event this past weekend!

We all had a blast - as THE DOO really knows how to hold AWESOME Weekend crops!!

I am so happy with the layouts I was able to make - just for me!  No class, no challenge, no deadline!  JUST FOR FUN CREATIVE "ME" TIME!!  I'd love to share them with you and I hope they will inspire you to get crafty and just create!

Here is the first one - and I have to say it is one of my favorites!

When the Simple Stories Fab-U-lous Line came out - I knew I had to have it - I just love the colors, and the style of the collection!  Here is a layout honoring a photo that was taken last month on my birthday.  We went out to dinner, and this is a picture of my beautiful Mom and me, toasting the day and being together! 

Well, if you don't know by now - I have to tell you that I LOVE lots of elements, textures and STUFF on my layouts ( as I am sure you can tell!  )

95 % of the products used came from Scrap-a-Doodle Doo.  The beautiful pearl and pink/yellow bead embellishment right under the journaling was from a broken necklace. 

I added it to the layout using HELMAR Scrap Dots, not so much for height, but to ooze into the back of the pin and secure it firmly to the page when it dried.

I hope you enjoyed looking, and I wish you all a HAPPY, SCRAPPY Weekend!!

OH - if you are in the Lancaster, PA area and will be attending the CKC that is there July 27,28 & 29, be sure to check out SCRAP-A-DOODLE DOO's Booth # 113 - and tell them SHERRI sent you!!  Ask them to show you all the great kits that I and the other DT members created for the event!!
