I am convinced that a warm spring is actually going to come soon...after the beautiful few days we had over the weekend. I actually got a little sunburn on my arms after visiting the zoo on Friday (which was completely insane by the way...it was more packed than I have ever seen it!). Unfortunately today was a total rain-out and there is some talk of snow tomorrow night (gotta love Michigan), but there is 70 degree weather on the way...yeah!
This last weekend, my scrappin' girls finally made it to get together. We missed a month in there, so it was good to get back. In an effort to help us all out, I started sending everyone a sketch to create a page from. So I selected a sketch by Becky Fleck of PageMaps...if you ever need a scrapbooking layout, this is where you want to go! I love her layouts! Anyway, when I saw the sketch (December '08) I decided to use these pictures from Halloween 2007. Eli was dressed as one of the monkeys that fell off the bed and bumped his head. My Mom made the costume and I added the lovely bandages...too funny!
This page has a bunch of stuff on it. The monkey is a CC Designs stamp set called Monkey Love. Such a cute monkey and would you believe I got it a long time ago specifically for eventually doing this page! The spider punch is micro-punch from Creative Memories...not sure if that is a retired thing or not...I won it at a scrapbooking retreat. The monkey's little treat bags were from a retired SU! set, Bitty Boos. The self-adhesive black rhinestones are from the jewelry section at Jo-Anns and the paper with the house on it was taken from a paper from Jo-Ann's...hate to say I did not note the manufacturer though. I found some reasonable chipboard letters and shapes at Wal-Mart...Best Occasions line...that is where the letters came from. I also got some rhinestone shapes from the same line....to be used at a later date.
Well that is all for me for now. I am hoping to get some cards done tomorrow night...so you might just hear from me again this week!
Thanks for stopping by my engineering world!
