Can't wait for club tomorrow!

Tomorrow is my first Scrappin Simply Club. I am beyond excited. For those who don't know these last couple months have been rough- my Nana and Grandpa moved here from Winnipeg in Nov and I've been loving my time with them and helping care for Nana. Well end of Feb Nana got sick so I spent a lot of time in hospital with her until her passing Mar 6th. It's been hard plus all the normal craziness of my life. So I NEED this me time! Anyone else?! LOL.

I took the Chantilly paper pack from the Workshop on the Go which is rather feminine and used the reverse side (love love love how CTMH papers have that option) and made a layout for my oldest son as he's often forgotten in my scrapbooking as he's not a huge fan of getting his picture taken. But man he can take a good pic if you catch him at the right moment. Which makes layouts of him even more special to me.

I still used the dark pink sparkly gems as I find it gives the right amount of sparkle and shot of colour. I also used different sizes photos. I often print in 4x6 and take lots of pics. So I like to add extra in and play with the sizes to make the layouts own.

The first picture is what I created with using the Workshop on the Go as my base. The second is the sample of one of the layout pages from the brochure so you can see what I was starting with.

Wish you were joining me tomorrow?! Let me know and you can join us in May! I know I'm already excited about what we will do next month! The club will decide tomorrow!

Hopefully even if you are not coming tomorrow you can find some ME time in your life and some down time for some Scrappin!
