A Little Scrappin'

A bunch of friends & I get together about 3-4 times a year to scrapbook. It's our birthday gifts to each other. These gals are a talented bunch, but, they only scrapbook. I can't break them into the card making circuit. They think that I'm nuts. Me? Nuts? No can be.
We usually scrap pages for the birthday girl who gives us the pictures that she wants to scrap. But, this time around, we made blank themed pages. Mine was supposed to be Sports, but, I went super generic. This one is for the ballet girls. Same layout for 2 pages. We embellish on our own.
I forgot to take pictures of the boys' pages, but, I did use TGF Soccer Ian's image on it. Came out super cute...if I can say so myself!
BTW, this awesome animal print paper is from Pineapple Cove (Kahala Mall). Purrrr!!

Long weekend coming up! Hang in there!

How wonderful to get together with friends to make a scrapbook layout for each other's birthday! This is so cute and whoever you made it for, she will love it! Tell them cardmaking is a "mini" version of layouts...condensed size LOL! They can just add the pics to the front and insides!!! Have a great weekend and I'll see you soon! Cami

Joni your layouts are great! It inspires me to do some layouts! It's been a very long time since I've done a scrapbook layout! Thanks for the inspiration! Have a great day! :)

Oh what a cool idea! I'm a horrible traditional scrapper! I can only do digi and maybe add on a few embellies. Generic is good, that way they can add on whatever they'd like from there!

It was fun hanging w/you and the others today! I'm so tired from stampin' Janis' stash! LOL!
