Hangin' In The Hot Tub

I didn't get a chance to create anything new yesterday, so I thought I would show one of my scrapbook pages that I did a while ago. This is one of my favorite pages!


We don't often get a photo of the four of us together. We need to do that more often! In this shot, we were visiting my mother-in-law in Arizona, and we were hanging out in her hot tub. The best part? This was in February. Believe me, in February, the weather in Illinois is horrible, so how cool was it that we were in a great location, in warm weather, hanging out in a hot tub? Pretty awesome! The background paper is Scrappy Cat, the frame is from My Mind's Eye. I love foam stamps, and I used my Making Memories alphabet with blue paint to create the title. I also used some blue paint to distress the edge of the frame. I journaled on orange vellum, and cut the journaling into strips and attached them to the layout with brads. There you have it, one of my favorite layouts! I just love it!

Thank you for all of the compliments on my hair. My goodness, you're all very sweet! I don't think it looks spectacular or anything like that. I posted a photo because a couple of people asked me to, and I'm just crazy enough to do it. Like I mentioned, I'm just thrilled that it's not hanging in my face anymore!

I enjoyed helping set up for the book sale, but WOW, was it hot in the room where we were setting up. I couldn't wait to be done! I set up the whole kid's area. I found a Calvin and Hobbes book for my girls. They love reading those cartoons! I also found a couple of books for myself. It's nice to set up, because you get to see everything that's there, and you get to shop early! We'll be back there on Saturday to help out again. My girls are going to help with straightening up and packing up when it's over.

I'm hoping to have some time to create today. I started reorganizing a little in my area yesterday, but I have so much more to do! Have a great day, and thanks for stopping by!

Great Layout! Don't you just LOVE Arizona?!? When I was in the Army I was stationed down by Tucson and I loved it, I stayed for about 3 years. But I loved being able to call my mom in the middle of her winter and say well I'm outside gardening! :)
