My Scrapbooking Weekend

I had a great time this weekend at my local scrapbook store. I just love to go there to scrap, chat or shop. On Friday night Verna the owner of Memory Lane in Smiths Falls, Ontario had a free crop and several ladies took advantage of it. Kate (my sons girlfriend) and I headed over there around 4 o'clock and didn't leave until 10. We worked on layouts and cards and really enjoyed chatting with the ladies.

On Saturday we arrived at 10am for a full day of scrapping. Wendy Visser came to give us a class on making a grunge paper album. She taught us to make a Tim Holtz grunge paper rose which we decorated the cover of the album with. We learned a lot of great techniques filling the rest of the album and had tons of fun. Wendy also had a class to teach us about copic markers and we made a valentines easel card so we could get a chance to color with the copics. If anyone is interested in having Wendy teach a class or wants to see the other wonderful cards she makes you can find her blog here The pictures show a sneek peek at Wendy's album, my album and card and Myself, Wendy and Kate during the class.

Today I kept my wonderful grandson while his Mom, Dad, Uncle and Aunt went out for a Valentines dinner. It was so nice to get to spend some time with him. He is 9 months old and is trying very hard to crawl. He can move pretty fast crawling backwards but hasn't got the hang of going forward yet. LOL
