Working on some Layouts

Look what I got to do this afternoon…Scrapbook!!!
I don't normally scrapbook alone.
Not sure why, I colour, make cards and do other creative projects when I'm by myself, but I don't seem to scrapbook alone…mind you I haven't scrapbooked that much lately.

I had purchased these kits from the Crop & Create event I was at last October.
It has 3 different layouts in this kit.
The kit tells you how to cut the papers and how to put it together.
I am a 2 page layout scrapbooker so I needed to make 6 pages instead of the 3 pages it supplied.
I didn't like a lot of the papers, but made myself use the paper…so I used a lot of the back sides of the papers.
The first layout I really don't like, the second layout I kind of liked, the third layout I really like…I'm like Goldilocks, teehee.
This is the second layout.
I had to use my own card stock to make the 3 page kit into a 6 page kit.
I will go more in detail on all of these pages when I have completed them.

Ashley wanted to put up a new walk way to the front of her house last year.
But the cement blocks were all sold out by the time she got her home, and they weren't going to re-order any as the summer season was almost over.
So Wayne volunteered his services and his truck to go and pick up the blocks today.
Here Kristy, Blake and Ashley are helping Tyler and Wayne unload them from the truck.
I was the photographer, so I didn't do any heavy lifting ;)

After all that, Ashley treated Wayne and I to supper at the Keg.
Last weekend Wayne and I drove to the border to pick up her chairs that she had ordered, so she told us she would take us out to dinner :)
The Keg is famous for their Billy Miner Pie….I have to say it was delicious.

But I think the warm brownie with ice-cream carmel and whip cream beat it :)
I can't show you our meals, as we started eating them before I remember, lol.

Well that is my day in a nutshell.
I hope you all had a very creative Saturday :)

Tracy :)


  1. Glad you managed to fit some creative time in your day. Pretty tulips on you table. Those are yummy looking desserts. I never have room after I have gone out to eat, though. Happy Mother's Day to you, tomorrow!

    1. I brought half of my meal home with me, so I could enjoy some of the dessert….lunch for me tomorrow, teehee.

  2. WTG with the scrapbooking, looking forward to seeing what you have done. Both desserts look yummy and depending on what I have I usually bring half home too. they should cut the size in half as well as price. Happy Mother's day.
