Scrapbook Pages & Diva Day in Review

I had a great time yesterday scrapbooking with my Diva girlfriends! I didn't get much done, but I like the pages I created. I'll show you two of them today. I created these for a sketch challenge at Lesli's blog. Please check out the rest of the pages at her site. If you like my two pages, please vote for them. One of them is in the top section of the voting, and the other is in the bottom section of voting. If you like other pages better than mine, that's OK too, select the ones you like. All of the pages are in the left column on Lesli's site. Go check them out and please vote!


This is my first sketch layout challenge. I love the big circle. I traced a lazy susan that was in my girlfriend's studio, and I hand cut the circle. Not bad! The title is QuicKutz. This is all of us dressed up to support the Chicago Bears when they played in the 2007 Super Bowl. They were NOT victorious. Just a fun page. I really like the way it turned out!


This is the photo that appeared on my Christmas cards for 2008. I always take a photo of the girls in our backyard. I just LOVE this photograph! This sketch worked great to showcase this single photo. The papers are My Mind's Eye Wild Asparagus, and the large brads are Making Memories. I added some Primas and rhinestones. I really love it!


Now for a Diva Day update! I had a wonderful day at my girlfriend Sue's house! It's always so much FUN being there! This is Queen Diva Sue! She normally has a tiara on when we're in the Diva Den. She's fabulous either way . . . tiara or no tiara!


This is Diva Deb sitting at the stamping station table. Yes, there is a stamping station. Can I just tell you right now, that Sue's studio in her basement is an amazing place to be?!! Everything you could possibly want is there! It's just so much fun to create in her space! Diva Deb is also without her tiara, but once again, fabulous either way!


This is my wonderful girlfriend Diva Kathy. I met my husband through Diva Kathy! Kathy and I worked together back in the day . . . I'm talking the late 80's!! We've known each other for a long time! I took this photo by holding the camera in front of us. I could have had Sue or Deb take the photo, but that's not as fun, right?

So, I had a GREAT time! Thank you Sue! I hope we can all get together again! I got just five pages done, but I did only stay until 5 p.m. We did a lot of talking, listened to music, watched a movie, and just had a wonderful time! For today, I need to run some errands, do laundry, and get organized for the upcoming week. My oldest and I need to run to Michael's for styrofoam balls, because apparently she needs to create a model of a human eye. I'm not sure why, but that doesn't really sound fun to me. Sure, a human eye is an AMAZING thing, but does she really have to construct one out of styrofoam to appreciate it? Have a great Sunday, please go vote for me, and thanks for stopping by!!
