I just got back from 3 wonderful days at a lake house with some scrapbooking friends. We were on Lake Hartwell which is between the border of Georgia and South Carolina. Very nice. My friend, Deb, has a huge lake house with 5 bedrooms and plenty of bathrooms for a group of ladies...there were 12 of us scrapping together. Very fun!
I did get a few layouts and projects completed which is always a good thing. Here's one I did of little David at the pool last year. I used Close to My Heart papers and chipboard embellishments. This one is sort of out of the box for me...I don't ordinarily crop photos so small but I saw an inspiration layout with small photos at the Scrapbook Generation site and liked the idea. I love the way this turned out
