Saturday's Scrap & Stamp up at church was so much fun!  Every third Saturday, our church sponsors this free event, complete with snacks and dinner.  It's a great time, and so much space to spread out and work, plus, helpful comments from all the others who scrap and stamp.  Small group this time, but we laughed so hard and all of us got so much done!  I managed several pages for my granddaughter's scrapbook, and got a head start on a couple of cards for upcoming birthdays as well.
My best friend Val is coming into town from Florida on Wednesday, and I'm very excited.  We're going to "Thelma & Louise" it all over northern Wisconsin this up coming weekend, and unless she brings her laptop, I won't be doing much blogging on our trip.  One of the places we are definitely interested in going is to Little Bohemia where John Dillinger was holed up and nearly caught.  Maybe Peshtigo, Copper Falls, and Goodman Park...  We'll see where the road takes us.  We'll spend a bit of time with my sisters who live in Rhinelander, go to church with my dad on Sunday in a little town called Wabeno; my folks were married in that church, and it's quite lovely, oh, and my friends Nate and Kati will be up north at their cabin, and I mentioned that they should come to Trinity on Sunday morning too!  Should be fun if they can make it.  Maybe breakfast at the casino following church...(no gambling though).  I'm really looking forward to spending time with Val and getting out of town for a little while.
So, here is one of the pages I did for Kelly's book.  It's an 8x8 album that the little ones generally like to read and see all the photos of themselves.  They live in AZ, so we don't get to see them all that often, but this year, Kelly will celebrate her birthday with us here!

My scanner is on the fritz, so I'm shooting with my i-phone -- very frustrating.  Anyway, I used Stampin' Up patterned papers, and their white cardstock, black and red cardstock is from Bazill, K & Company glittered letters, and a leftover brad (I just knew I should save it) from about 8 years ago.  I free cut the pinwheel, so easy to do, and then just flattened it to fit in the page protector.  Enjoy.
