I am back from my annual amazing Girls Getaway... somehow we talked our hubbies into 6 days this year and they all did a great job of holding down the forts while we were away! I am photographing and processing the layouts as quick as I can, but I think I have a cold coming on so I am taking it easy. I will share one of my layouts now and hopefully get the rest up as the week goes on. Our layout count this year was 39 completed layouts (a mix of single and doubles) and granny did 18 base layouts (just missing the photos)! Most of the 39 were done by Jodi who managed to crank out 14 two-page layouts and 9 single pagers!!! Wow!
I have to say a huge Thank You to Granny and Papa for hosting (that's my Mom & Dad). They had the house all staged for cropping with stations for the Cricut, sewing machine, Quickutz, and Accucut. We each got our own bedroom (for the little sleeping we did), and they planned most of our meals! They are amazing! Papa made us dinner & dessert every night (except our Birthday Dinner night) and made us lunch quite a few times as well!
Here is the first of my 9 layouts...
This one was the quickest layout of just about all time! Start to finish was about an hour, maybe two... seeing as it was about 3am I couldn't really read tell time, lol! I hand cut the trees and bus out of one of the patterned papers. Wheels was punched out using my newest Quickutz font Strawberry, which I am sooo in love with! And BUS was punched out of one of granny's fonts using chipboard then painted it, I think it was a Sizzix Bigz font? The buttons are CTMH Craft buttons.
