WOW!!! It's already Wednesday - as far behind as I am and tired - it still feels like it should be MONDAY!! Okay - so here are some pics from this weekend..................I'm gonna try and do a photo bucket of them as i get them, so you can enjoy ALL of them!!!! I don't have a "sketch" for you this week - but I do have some pics from the layouts that were completed AT ganza - so that should give you some inspiration!!!!


This first one was the SEVEN hour one that I completed at Ganza - but I blew it up a little bigger, cuz I had some of "ya'll" wanting to lift it!!! WOW!! I've never had anyone LIFT my stuff before!!! (i can't take all the credit though - it was a sketch that I lifted!!)

This was a PERSONAL favorite of mine!! I'd been wanting to use WHITE ON WHITE for a while - and I had some THICKERS (amy and summer - are you excited!??!) that i had been wanting to use!! So, I tried to balance the PINK and blue together.....look, I even used FLOWERS on this layout and there's a BOY in the picture!! mmmmmmm!!! It can be done! I used the Dot Dot Circle Circle template from the Crafters Workshop (that we have in the store).....LOVING those right now!


It's official!! Chase, my nephew, has been "born" in my scrapbook album now!! hoRRAYYyy!!! Even though he turns TWO tomorrow - he was finally born and delivered in the Thompson scrapbook album!!! This was a very simple layout that i had been wanting to do, i am digging kraft paper right now!!! love how it can be used for something so sweet!!!


Okay - these weren't done at ganza - but are some of my FAVORITES from this past month that i have completed! (and I don't usually have favorites of my OWN....i don't take the time to make them favorites!!? does that make sense!?!?) but these are some that I'm pretty proud of!!!...................................................


I had a TON of pictures from Fathers Day, but I didn't want to make SIX pages of fathers day - so I shrunk my favorite photos down and used a LARGE photo of "dad" in the center.....I thought this layout was SO self-explanatory that I didn't even journal!!!



This was the first time that I used the Chip Chatter - FUZZY letters!!! I thought they were perfect for the guys jumping!!! Plus - I even used some BLING! This layout was SUPER fast!! I was so proud that I didn't spend HOURS on this one and turned out pretty decent!!!




Okay - this was the first one that I completed using the WISHBLADE to cut out my title!! ALL ALONE!! Renee didn't have to DO IT FOR ME!!! But, I love the story behind this layout - I have to say that most of my layouts are about the stories that I love to tell....so, for me anyway, the journaling makes or breaks a layout for me?! Wierd?!?! I don't think so!!!


And this layout was done by Jana U.......I love this!! I am really starting to get used to WHITE SPACE?!! It's hard, but once you've done it - it's hard NOT to!!! I loved the simplicity and the detail of this layout all together! She even handstitched above the scallops - HULLO!?!?!


Okay - so there are some layouts to inspire ya!! I hope they do!!! And, since I LEFT THIS OUT OF THE NEWSLETTER yesterday - (I'm so mad at myself for that!)......here is a little sneek peek of just SOME of the cards that Jodi will be bringing to the world card making day class!! Seriously you guys - these cards are AWESOME!! You will not find a cart at target or hallmark of this kind!!! Enjoy!!!

Very impressed! I love the thickers! I really like the father's day idea! That is one that I will have to scraplift. It's just like you said. You have tons of photos but don't want tons of pages for one event! I think I take too many photos sometimes!!

Ok-so you said that the journaling was the key to the poppie layout-yet we cant read it and dont know what it says! Steff!?! I'm glad you're settled and getting scrapping done now-looks good.

I LOVE YOUR LAYOUTS. I think the button and father's day one are my all time favorites. I'll be scraplifting them, if I ever get to scrap again, LOL.
