weekend recap

I had a great weekend and the sis crop was awesome- so much fun. We had a ball and all of the ladies there were so cool, talented and awesome! I love to scrap by myself but it is so cool to see what other people are working on, how they create and all of the mini conversations that take place! So fun and inspiring. Mellymel drove to my house and we had the best roadtrip down to Richmond. She is an awesome gal to travel with and. I feel like we will be hanging out alot more and soon I hope. :) I made this layout of my sister-Brigittee while at the crop. I love the orange and brown which compliments her skin tone so well. I must admit when the mod rubs came out at first they scared me but I sucked it up and used them on this layout and now I am loving the mod. :)

This layout is for the August gallery at Just Let Me Scrapbook of my sweet Saadiq. He will be seven in two months and it is so unreal to me. It seems like yesterday that he was a baby. :)
I made my own background "paper" with the big scalloped tag by stamping the background with a water drop stamp.
added some tulle to this as well, think this will be my new addiction :) I picked it up at Hobby Lobby in Denver. I am so going to pick up more when I am home next time in southern VA.
Well that is it, it is hot and we have been without air for a week. Good news the Sears tech. is finally suppose to come out today so I am at home waiting and sweating. haha...but I think I may do a little scrapping in between work stuff.
have a great day, stay cool
