Girl's Weekend

Another January, another Girl's Weekend. I think I realized this time why I love it so's a few days where I am responsible for no one but myself. I don't have to listen to see if Jillian is waking from her nap. I don't have to make dinner (well, I did, but just because that was the meal I had signed up for). It's nice to have a little freedom like that every now and then.

For some reason, we were not as productive this year (I hit a jam when my slice stopped working...grrr), but it was still a blast!

We got everyone in the picture this year, but some didn't want their faces in it so early on a Sunday morning.

I did 18 pages, and was really happy with how a few of them came together. The one below was in my head and I almost bought some road trip stuff at Archiver's, but thought I'd see what I could do with what I had. I'm really hapy with how it turned out, and all with supplies I already had!

Similarly, the one below was the result of just playing with supplies I had on hand. Fun! Plus the pictures are really funny!

Once I got home, I kept going. Love this one. Scraplifted from page 43 of 2/10 Creating Keepsakes.

The left side of this one is a scraplifted from page 49 of 2/10 Creating Keepsakes. All those embellishments, are definitely not my style, but I am glad I tried something different and pleased with how it turned out.

I love the combination of color and stripes in this one, and again, I used old paper from my stash. This is scraplifted from this fun crafter. I really like her style (and she has an adorable baby girl a few months older than Jillian).

Thanks for looking!

Love that last page, that is so my style. And good for you for getting out of your comfort style on some of those pages. I rarely do that but when I do, I usually like the result.
