Sorry for not posting yesterday! I hosted a stamp camp yesterday. Friday night I prepped and Saturday morning until 2 p.m. was stamp camp. I had fun stamping with the three girls that came. I stamped all my extras so I would have some thank you cards to send out. After the camp I hang out in the backyard and read.

This morning I made this page. I used this weekend’s sketch as a starting point for the layout.

The picture was taking during the third grade violin concert.

Rebecca was soooo excited and proud.

The scrapbook page is a 6″ x 6″ piece of Basic Gray cardstock.

I cut down the picture to 4″ x 4 3/4″ and layered if first on a 1/4″ bigger piece of Purely Pomegranate (I thought that would work well with her lip color), then on a 1/2″ bigger piece of Basic black.

My 1 1/8″ x 6″ white strip was stamped with the Fresh Cuts background in Basic Gray, sponged around the edges and first layered on a 1/4″ bigger piece of Basic Black, then on a 3/8″ bigger piece of Purely Pomegranate. The bottom edge of the Pomegranate cardstock was scalloped with the corner rounder.

The sentiment is from the stamp set Taking Care of Business. It was stamped in Pomegranate and punched out with the 1 1/4″ circle punch. That was layered on a  1 3/8″ black circle and scalloped Basic Gray circle. The flower is from the Flower Fusion tin and has a Fire Circle Rhinestone brad in it’s center.

The day on the left hand side is from Fundamental Phrases (part of the birthday greeting). It was stamped in Gray on white cardstock and punched out with the Window Word punch. A 1/4″ black circle with another Fire Circle Rhinestone brad finish it off.

I journaled on the bottom with a 03 black Micron Pen.

Personal Note:

Today the kids and I will watch Indiana Jones. I am not that excited to go, but they can’t wait. Maybe I will be pleasantly surprised just like with the Narnia movie last week! LOVED that one.

Have a great Sunday! Hugs and smiles
