Happy Canada Day!!!!......Tomorrow!!!

What more could a crafty girl ask for on a long weekend than a scrappy day with some amazing friends and gorgeous weather!!!  I have been blessed to find a very special person who loves to scrap as much as I do, and she only lives 10 minutes away.  And now she is more than just a scrap buddy. She is one of the most caring, giving, good-hearted, feisty and beautiful friend I have ever had in my life. Her family has welcomed me and cared so much about me than sometimes I want to pinch myself, because they are to good to be true!!! THANK YOU dear Liz.......believe me when I say that I would be lost without you in my life!!!!!

On friday June 29th I not only got to spend the day scrapping with Liz but also with Nicole. another friend I have met through scrap booking over a year ago, and Kassandra whom I have recently met through scrap booking!!!  We had a great day scrapping and spending some money at our LSS. I am a very slow scrapper......sometimes it takes days for me to complete a layout. So imagine how happy I was to have completed a LO and another paper project in one sitting!!!!  I felt like I had won a gold metal or something! LOL!!!!  Being surrounded by those talented girls must have done me some good. Thank you Liz, Nicole and Kassandra for such a fun filled day I can't wait to crop with all of you again!!!

So this is the layout I completed. It is based on the Turquoise #9 MWM through Scrapbook Steals!!!  I always love their inspiring sketches created by the crazy talented Kristy Lee!!!!

This is the sketch.........

........and this is my creation!!!!!

I love the way this LO turned out. The photo is on my precious little grand daughter Miss Blake and her Daddy!!!  As you can see her little face lights up with joy and love for her Daddy!!!  Not only was she a little giggler, but this photo just makes me giggle also. 

Everything except for the solid pink paper and the ribbon comes from Pebbles. I have definitely become addicted to Pebbles. Everything coordinates so well, and the embellishments are simply divine!!!!
The solid pink background paper is from MME Indie Chic collection. Another line of MME that I drool over, and want all of LOL!!!!! 

The other fun product I used on this LO is one of the Lucky Eight punches. I have yet to buy one myself. But after playing with this one that belongs to a friend I know I am going to want them all!!! There is so many things you can do with just one punch. 

To all of my Canadian friends have a wonderful Canada Day!!!!
