Scrapbooking by the Lake

Yes I do find time to scrapbook.........when invited to a crop. I find it so much easier to make cards these days but once I start scrapping that is all I want to do.
I was lucky enough to be invited to a two day crop at Congress Country Club by my friend Jill Hardie. It was one of the most relaxing and beautiful places I have scrapped. The space had a beautiful view of the lake and the pool which of course at this time of the year was covered. The manager of the lockeroom was very attentive and pleasant. I was able to get quite a few pages done which I hope to share with you soon. Below are just a few shots from the weekend with Jill and my other scrapbooking buddy Ginny.

Paper Piecing with Silhouette

Hello, today I am posting a card we did awhile back in card club. Our challenge was to make a punch or paper piecing animal. This was super easy using one of the great files from and my silhoutte. We have to make a card for each person in the group for the challenge so needless to say using a cutting machine saves a lot of time. I chose a baby duck from a cutting file from myscrappychick it is so easy to download a file and on Fridays you ge a free one!!! My one hang up when doing faces on a animal or person is the eyes well myscrapchick even has some free printable eyes which I used on the Duck. I added some depth with chalk around the eyes and Voila! a great pair of eyes.
