What a creative weekend!

Well I have to say that I don't think I have had a weekend in so long that I was able to do everything I wanted (with a 4 mth. old this really hasn't happen since before she was born!!)....but I did this weekend!!

Yes....me and Ash headed to Breaux Bridge, LA because that is where we find inspiration!! We rented the cheapest hotel room...put up tables and scrapped all weekend...in between antique and flea market shopping!! It was a blast and a little slice of heaven....to scrap at what ever time we wanted and drink as many cokes and eat as much junk food as I wanted!! Before I left for Breaux Bridge...Ashley let me do a little (oh I mean alot!!) of shopping at her store...I think I bought one of everything that has come in!!

This was my pile at the check out counter!


The inspiration was in the air and me and ash gave ourselves tons of challenges and it really helped us to think outside the box...it was great! I have lots of pics to share with you so I hope you enjoy!!

So, here is the class that I will be teaching at Ashley's store on Sept. 25th @ 6 pm...email Ashley if you are interested in signing up inspirescrapboutique@gmail.com .... if you were on my mailing list at Scrapalicious....you will be on hers, so you will be getting an email from the store very soon on all the up coming events at the store!! In case you didn't know Ashley's opens Monday, Sept. 13th!

In this class you will alter an old roof slate...I have managed to get my hands on some awesome slate...an I can't wait for you guys to see them in person! This is a great home decor project and awesome to put up in your home or give to a family or friend as a gift! The quote on the slate is "True Love...is like ghosts, which everybody talks about and few have seen." Of course if you take the class you don't have to use that quote...we will have a quote book at the store with lots of fabulous quotes!!

Hand made flowers that you can learn how to make!!

Here are some layouts that I completed this weekend:

A Golf double page layout that I did of me, jacques, and seth...playing golf on father's day! Title is "Like Father Like Son"



Here is another double page layout that I did of Jacques on the beach in Key West.

Here are some layouts I did of Miss Juliette Marie!! I am trying to not get behind with her, but it is hard to balance scrapbooking two children now!! But, I must say it is soooo much fun to scrapbook a little girl!!

A little handmade flower using some awesome vintage fabric from one of my favorite customers ms. lily!

Ok...so here is a layout that I challenged Ashley to do with me! The challenge was...the layout couldn't be 12x12 in size...so we choose to do a 6x12 layout. We couldn't use paper for layering....only rub ons to create our background! We could use any embellishments, but in moderation! Here is what I made...I used all the colors in Ashley's store...that was my inspiration!

Here is a simple layout I did of me and Juliette at the hospital. It is titled "Our New Life"


Here is another challenge Ashley issued to me over the weekend...no paper, rub ons, buttons, embellishments...around your picture....nothing can touch it!! Wow...you don't realize how hard this is until you try it!! But, I had fun with this challenge!!


Here is an altered project I did for Juliette's bed room...the letter "J"



Hope you enjoy! Be checking back soon...because I will be posting lots of up coming events and classes that will be taking place at Inspire Scrap Boutique!!

XOXO, Vera
