~ What I did during Christmas vacation and Blogversary RAK


It’s been a great 10 days but alas, I return home tomorrow. I’m kinda glad though. Need to take a vacation from my vacation, if you know what I mean. Need to get back to my real life.  So, what did I do during my visit with my parents? Ate, cooked, ate, cooked, ate and in between that, I made a quick on-the-fly scrapbook for my parents without the benefit of all of my own materials and tools, just what I was able to scrounge up (toolwise) from my brother and a few buttons, some lace and a couple of punches I bought from Wal-Mart and Target specifically for the job. 

The base pages in the scrapbook were something I made several years ago. My parents had it on their coffee table–empty. So, I took that and slapped the pictures and embellishments into it. Not bad for one day’s work.  There is a bit of yellow tinge in the copies of the layouts that I made due to taking photos of them indoors.  (My parents’  butter-yellow walls reflected a weird light.)

Stuff:  Daisy D’s – paper collection, stickers, rub-ons; Bazzill – cardstock; Stampin’ Up! – ribbon; buttons, lace 


vf-twilightOn a non-scrappy note, I ended up watching Twilight again (twice) at the movie theater first with my sis-in-law, daughter and niece and then second with my hubby.  And as if that wasn’t enough, I watched it albeit “bootleg” via an online link a (ah-hem) covert source provided to me another two times just last night!  Thanks, Carolyn! 

Alrighty, down to business–just two weeks until my one year Blogversary.  Post a comment anywhere on my blog for a chance to receive a RAK.  I’ll take comments for the RAK until January 15, so post to your heart’s content.  I will announce the winner on Inauguration Day. =)
