Altered Tray

So, the minute I saw these awesome trays by 7 Gypsies, I knew I would do this. I used some pictures from my "scrappy girls retreat" in Chicago and created this fun tray for my scraproom! I'm so excited because I am going to make this an annual tradition to preserve our journey:) I'm already a year behind so I will be purchasing another to do one for last year! These are going to be displayed in order on my scraproom wall:) This took me an evening to create, but it was soooo much fun and I loved every trivial minute of trying to find the right piece to go in just the right spot!

Back from Chicago!

I've been in Chicago with my "scrap girls" from Paper. Several of us from all over the U.S. got together for our second annual retreat. This year we met in Chicago and had the time of our lives. Whether it was seeing famous TV actors, stepping out on the Sky Deck at Sears Tower, riding in a stretch limo around the city on a Friday night, or just sitting around giggling in our jammies, it was an amazing adventure - and with 1000 pictures (actual number) the week will not be soon forgotten. This post is dedicated to my dear friends: Lisa, Paula, Erin, Josie, Krissy, Jenn, and Jenny. I love you girls with all my heart and look forward to seeing you again.
