Solo Scrap Mania

I started not feeling well Saturday night when Frank and I went to Derby Dinner Playhouse (good show for a change) so I decided to spend all day Sunday inside and rest. HA! I don't think I know how to rest. So, I scrapped....ALL DAY! It was great! I didn't even make dinner because there were leftovers in the fridge. I couldn't have planned it better. (Sorry for the long post!)

Then Monday comes and I still don't feel well, so I didn't go bowling and I canceled my fitness trainer appointment and stayed in all day again. Now it's Tuesday and I have to go out because of all the things I didn't get done on Sunday and Monday!

This layout is in response to Challenge #68 at Scrapping the Music. The song is Pictures of You by The Last Goodnight. Everything here is from my stash as I haven't been out to buy anything new lately. Well, I lied a little bit. On December 16th, when I met Steph in Lexington, I did stop at Memories A La Mode in Frankfort and dropped a few $$, so I guess the Hambly Mini Grid overlay and the Teresa Collins Clock are fairly new.

This layout is about Adam Luther's "surgery" back in August of 2007. Friends, Dixie and Nancy did the surgery while we were all out in Maryland for the Prosey's annual CPK gathering during the first weekend in August. They did a great job...I just couldn't have done it myself! I found that great band-aid chipboard strip while out west in September thinking I'd use it on a layout for this purpose and I bought the band-aid paper about a year ago with the same thoughts. I just now got around to doing the layout. The "buttons" are from a swap I participated in on SIS last year. Then, I did some machine stitching around the edges of the paper...I think I'll be doing more machine stitching in the future! :0)

I also did a Mini Book about Adam Luther's experience using a Jenni Bowlin 4x4 scalloped book. It's a pretty neat book -the inside is the lined paper and both of the covers are blank, so this one was pretty fast to finish.

Can you tell I miss the little guy?? Anyway, Thanks for looking. :0)

Your scrappin' stuff is always beautiful, Peggy! I wonder why Adam was so understuffed? I'm glad he can puff his chest out now!

You're so clever with your scrapping.. I have tons of scrap stuff, but mine never looks so nice!
J.D. loves the book you made for Adam!
