A scrapping w-end!

What a great w-end!

Friday night it was a delight to spend it with Katie at the store and the ladies and we cropped till passed 1am.... The following day Rach was added to our group and we had a great time the 3 of us. Yesterday was cleaning /organizing "part 1" and from 1h45 to 9pm I attacked (with interruptions wile watching a bit of TV and prepping diner) part of the living room.

Here is what I have created over the weekend.... my first pages of Stephane and his new Star Wars passion. The 2 pages are both plain white cardstock. This one...." Lucky Girl" I stamped with Glimmer mist and bubble packing and redefined them with the paint brush, then a layer of acrylic paint and completed with stamp "bottle drink bottle and cap" with India ink.

I wanted one side more masculine for Stephane and my side a mix of more feminine items....

Love the grey tones, all the embellishments
***Click on pictures to make them bigger***

This one I used once again glimmer mist but applied it with a brayer, then massive coats of crackle paint with one section with crystal lacquer on top ( under the 8852 * this is Stephane TK ID, all 501st member as 1 # that will follow them for ever and no one else can have that #), used a stamp for the dot circle and then used the wood tip of the paint brush to defined them with paint.

The title is a mix of rub-ons.... "Super Hero throughout the year" -
just perfect!

Stephane was so so so happy with both the layout, especially this one....
he wants it in a shadow box and in his Star Wars room!

Take time to smell the flowers - First official family visit 1 year after moving here to Ottawa - May 2002 - my bother missing on action!

I started this one at the last crop - was not completed, now I am happy with it.

# 1 BOY

This one also was started at a past crop, but was missing a few items, love the little monkey brad... not saying that Loic is a little monkey, just thought that the big smile of the little silly friend was perfect to complete the layout!

Thanks Katie and Rach for a great scrapping w-end!

Also a big thanks to the scrapbox "back of the studio" girls - it's always a blast spending some time with all of you... Kathy, Liz, Lorrie and Nancy - Cindy loo we were missing you!

Have a great week all!
