2nd Annual SCRAPPY FUN at Casa Ramirez

Ingredients for a Perfect Day
1        'Hostess with the Mostest';  Danie Ramirez
1        sunny day in a gorgeous setting; Danie's home, deck and garden
5        scrapping fools; June Anne, Danie, Joey, Nancy and me
5        goodie bags containing all we'd each need to memorialize the event
1        incredible luncheon of; chicken, Greek salad and banana cream pie
all      the Sangrias and tea necessary to keep the creative juices flowing
and    everyone with a desire to scrap and more paper, pictures, embellishments
          and ideas than enough

No layout could adequately convey the creative fun and camaraderie that we experienced but I had to try.

The paper package I used had one of those strips on the front detailing the papers within the package. Because the paper designs appear smaller on it, and the strips are no more than an inch wide, I cut and arranged them so that, together with a Bo Bunny trinket and ribbon from my goodie bag, it created a fan.

The sketch I used was the first one out for July from Scrapmuch? and created by Laura Whitaker. Because I like to use as many pictures as I can in my work, I am always anxious to see the first Scrapmuch? sketch of the month as it is always for a double page layout.

 What an amazing time we had.
