Wow What crazy weather

Well, what can I say it is Spring, however, we have been getting snow and ice since yesterday. The snow has stopped, but that doesn't mean that it is any fun getting around. I am finally going to post some pages from Get Scrappy. Get Scrappy was the fund raising crop that I went to with all my friends from the East store. The crop did raise some much needed funds for the YWCA Crisis Center. I had an absolute blast and got about 10 pages done while I was there.

A little about these pages. I wish that I could remember what brand of patterned paper I used, but I can't I have had it too long. The title I painted the chipboard letters with white acrylic paint and then sprayed them with red glimmer mist. The word embellishments are from lil davis. The white on the edges is actually just white acrylic paint and not paper.

These pages are pictures that I took for my friend before she had baby number 2. I know that she is tired of seeing these photos pop up since I have used them several times for class samples when I was teaching, but this layout was done for my book so they should not pop up any longer. I wanted a simple yet elegant look for this layout. This was my favorite layout from the weekend.

A little information about the title. I used Chipboard letters by pink cactus and used of course glimmer mist to add that sheen and the green color. I then added the bling. The swirls are just large punches from paper shapers (thanks Toni for letting me use this).

For those of you that know my scrapbooking ways, I hope that you noticed that I did journal in my own handwriting and at this same time that I did the pages.

Here is one last picture, I took this picture this morning during the spring blizzard that we were having. If you were to look in our backyard right now there is still snow and sleet on the ground, but it has melted off the tree.

Thank you for peeking in and be safe. Have a great rest of your weekend.
