This is a card that I made for my boss. She is the best. Seriously. She totally gets it. I wanted to do something fun for her birthday, and everyone calls her "The Queen". So, this is what I came up with. I think it totally suits her personality.

Lacy and I went to a scrap camp this weekend. We had a total blast. You can go on Friday at 4:00 pm and stay over til Saturday at 9:00 pm, but we just did Saturday. I think that was a good decision. Because by 8:00 pm, I was totally out of steam. Not to mention delirious. It was so worth it though. We never get to scrap together because there just isn't enough room. We had a whole table to ourselves, so there was plenty of room to spread out. Lacy got 29 layouts done. Holy cow! I only did 15. But, Lacy's approach is cleaner than mine. I like my layouts all junked up lol. I did do some simpler ones toward the end though. I was too tired to pretty them up any more.
Anyway, we loved it, and we plan on doing it again in April at a different event.
Here are the pages I got done.
My niece, Jordyn's, school pic this year
My nephew, Ryan's, school pic this year
My nephew graduating from preschool 2 years ago
Trinity Church and St Paul's Chapel in NYC (journaling is too long and will be on a separate insert page to the scrapbook)
Central Park in NYC
Heartland Brewery at the bottom of the Empire State Building (we needed a little break after flying and walking all day lol)
Empire State Building
Bowling Green Park. I wasn't going to include the second pic by the bull, but after reading a bit of the history, I knew I needed to. (journaling is too long and will be on a separate insert page to the scrapbook)
My tattoo!--I need to reprint the pic that I wrote on. I messed up a word and scribbled on it. Not pretty.
My fave layout of the night. One of the ladies told me that I should submit it for "best of show" next time we come.

I made this page a couple of weeks ago. Just never got around to posting it on my blog.

This is my niece, Nicki, and I. This photo was taken about 14 years ago. My niece died at 3 months old. Her mother has very few photos of her, so I cherish this one and only of Nicki and I that my sister happened across while cleaning up some storage at her home. She has very few photos of Nicki, and even less with anyone else in them. I think this is the only one with a full view of anyone else, so it is really special to me (even though my hair is a little out of control lol).
