Ahoy!


I hope everyone had a great weekend.  I am going on a scrapbook retreat this weekend with some friends.  I can't wait for the chance to make pages and cards ALL WEEKEND! 
I played my second game of golf this weekend.  I must say I was pretty frustrated.  I had visions of improving with each game but sadly that will not be the case. Maybe I will do better next time. 
I am also trying to take up running.  I bought the Ipod chip that fits in your shoe and then works with your Ipod to track the distance you've ran.  This is a pretty nifty gadge and it motivates me to get out and run and it also encourages me to try to run a little further each time. 

Below is a two page layout I did as an assignment as for The Scrapbook Page.  The theme was "Pirates".  The patterned paper is by the Rusty Pickle.  Also as a requirement I had to use the Quick Kutz dies which I cut out with my Cuttle Bug.  All of the objects were cut using these dies except the Palm Trees which were by Jolee's Boutique and the letters which were Base Camp by Cricut.  I aged and distressed the paper with the Making Memories distress tools.  The sand on the second page was done with Petal Soft.  It is their sand color in ultra fine.  The Treasure map was cut out with core paper and then sanded down to get to the lighter color, giving it an aged look and then I also went around the edges of the map with a dark brown cats eye to give another layer of the aged and distressed look. The gold in the treasure chest was made using Stickles.








I hope everyone has a great day. I plan on talking more about Flower Soft in the near future for those ofyou who haven't used it. If you have any questions about any of the other items I've used just let me know.
