Weekend Highlights...

Hello my fellow friends and bloggers...
Here we are...it's Sunday again and I have to say...time flies by when your having fun!

Friday night we headed to the wonderful Winspear Centre to see one of our favourite bands...
Los Lonely Boys... When were walking thru the LRT Station to get to the show Marv said, "it's pretty quiet here, I wonder if the show is canceled"... and then when we got to the doors we realized why there were no people! The concert had been canceled!! We were pretty disappointed and surprised we had not heard anything (Marvin reads the paper every day and would not have missed this had it been there)...We did find out the tour has been canceled related to one of the members having lesions on his vocal cords...which is a fairly significant...more so than our disappointment...so we hope he is taken care of and that they will continue with the tour at some point....

Saturday morning I got up early and went to the gym... I ran in to my friend Tammy and we had a nice visit on the treadmills...and I stayed longer because of it!! Yeah me!

Saturday evening we hooked up with our good friends Jen & Darren and had dinner at the Copperpot. The food was "okay", the view was lovely overlooking Ezio Farone Park & the Legislature, but I would not go back. We had so much fun though, Darren is quite entertaining...we had many laughs. We also talked about my 40th birthday and what we might do to celebrate. It's Jen's 30th coming up very soon, so it looks like we might go to Vegas in September or October!! We have to sort out the dates first...

Today I was planning to go to the gym, might go a bit later, but I really wanted to relax and have a fun day. I've got a chicken in the pot right now to make some home made chicken soup! My mom makes awesome chicken soup...we like to make it too, it's been awhile and today looks like a great day for soup!

Well, it's that time...I have a couple layouts to share, both are from my Dimensional Details class with Nic Howard, the layouts are based on her design.


I love the colors of this layout...The idea for the layout was to use alphabet stickers as a background. I had leftover Sassafrass Lass stickers from a couple years ago, and I love how it turned out. I also used KI memories lace paper and Basic Grey (Marrakech) paper and stickers.

The second layout was fun to do as well....


For this layout we were to ink the area behind the photo, this is meant to bring the focus to the picture. I had problems with the inking, I felt it was kind of like a big dark blob behind the photo (might have something to do with the darkness of it), so I altered it by stamping some images and then ultimately put some paint on it. I like how it turned out... Used Upsey Daisy, Crate Paper, & Bo Bunny papers; flowers, ribbon & felt letters are all Prima; Chipboard piece is Heidi Swapp. 

That is it for today! Next weekend I am at Treasured Memories for National Scrapbooking Day! So I have to start planning for it now...

Have a great Sunday everyone!
