My apologies....

This is a bunch of layouts -- and more to come.  I'm doing a LOAD and several of these are for challenges, so need to get them up NOW.  I got a LOT done at the weekend crop -- most of these I'm really happy with.  So here we go --
Priceless -- from Christmas Day, 2013.  If you can't read the journaling on the left it says:  BOGO slurpees for 5 -$5.25, Parking - $10, Whining to your Face Book friends back East that it was too hot at the beach on Christmas Day......Priceless.

Ben and his (now ex-) girl friend on Valentine's Day.  They went to Tomo's for sushi with reservations and everything.  

Life is Good -- from Memorial Day in Huntington Beach.  Picked up this Bo Bunny paper at Scrapbooking Forever during the crop.  Love, love, love it.  

I finished (I think) the HHN album (yes, there was so much I decided to make an album of it).  This is Moonrise, Over the Stars.  

Another HHN, Insidious -- the maze Scott worked in.  This was for a challenge at the crop.  We got the same 5 papers and could make anything.  You can vote for your fave -- and the winner gets a gift certificate (the contest is on their FB page)

Not much creativity here, but the front page for the album.

I thought this was done (other than a title on the tag) but when I pulled it out to photo it, I'm getting an "undone" vibe from it.  Hmmmmm

So I had done the page on the left for a challenge at the end of April, but then I found the photo of the sign and the one on the right.  So I changed the left page a bit and did the right.  Just a little campy.

Both of these are from sketches at Creative Scrapper.  Entertainment is some of the cast and crew just hanging around -- David and Scott got to know the little couple who would run around on their scooters all over.  I've got to ask the guys again what their names are.  Hitch is from a movie screening we got to go to (as employees and guests) on site at the studio -- and a picture of me in front of the Alfred Hitchcock Building.

And there's about 8 more pages to come -- once I finish up.

Easter/My First Silhouette Project

I made the baskets (including the pillow boxes) and the cards for my guys (and friends) for Easter.  I learned a lot in the process about my Silhouette and was happy with how they all came out for the most part.

The files for the cards were from Miss Kate (other than the basket itself -- don't remember where I picked that up), I'm not sure about the file for the box/ basket ,  I think it came from the Silhouette store, and I think the pill box came from Bird.

The Purge -- HHN Opening

This is my LOAD 1 for Let's Scrap, using this week's sketch

The photos are from the "Employees Only" soft opening of HHNs.  Since DH and ODS were working, they could give their tickets to friends and family, so Ben and I went.  First pic is Ben waiting in line -- we got there at least an hour early, I think it was earlier and there were already people there.  They only had a certain number of Front of the Line badges and they had a posted policy of no saving spots in line -- but as more and more people jumped in with friends, we were beginning to wonder if we were going to get the badges.  But we did.  They opened the gates and then held everyone at the end of the street -- waiting for the "rope drop".  The alarm goes off (signalling the beginning of the Purge) and there were flashes and smoke and the chainsaws and the masked purgers came out -- and your first challenge was getting past them all.
