Goofy Glasses!

So happy to be making progress on layouts of my darling granddaughter, Ava.  This past Saturday & Sunday I had the chance to scrap with a roomful of quilters, what a fun day!  My older sister, Risa, was in town to quilt and visit with her quilting friends on Saturday.  She only lives 45 minutes from me but since we both work full time it is sometimes hard to get together.  When I found out that she would be in town, I invited myself to scrap while the other ladies quilted.....saw some gorgeous quilts!  I know most of the ladies that attended the quilting bee, a couple were past sewing teachers of mine from my days in 4-H and Girls Scouts, and it didn't take long to get to know the other ladies.  It was a great day of scrapping/quilting, visiting, and eating!  I was even invited back for their next quilting day. 

I started my newest layout on Saturday and finally took the time to get a photo today before dark, added the journaling later, and have already added it to Ava's album.  The sketch for my layout is from Scrapbook Generation's Sketch Fusion with Simple Stories.  The  book has 24 Sketches and 24 Color Samples....great inspiration for those times when the mojo just isn't the best!  

Supplies for this layout were a mixture of Basic Grey, LYB, Bo Bunny, Designer Paper, MME, & Simple Stories.

I followed fairly close to the sketch only adding few more hexagons under the far left photo and added the elements in the upper right corner.  The photos bring back an evening of fun & laughter for us all!   

Wishing everyone a great week.
