back from a fun 3 day weekend with friends

and I have a scrappy injury to show for it. This past weekend my Good friend Suzy West came out to stay with me and we took a girls trip on Saturday up to Green Tangerines in Rocklin for a get together with friends.

with friends Suzy West and Ashley N. Newell

with Deirdre, Suzy and Ashley.
While we were in Rocklin we got cupcakes to celebrate Suzy and Deirdre's birthday.

I don't remember the name of the cupcake shop but if I am ever in that area again, I have to stop by because these were delicious.

We had a fun time creating together and I got a lot of layouts done. 8 total for the weekend. That was huge for me. We came back to my house and Suzy and I continued working on projects throughout the weekend. Then my big clumsy fingers got into a fight with my rotary trimmer and I wound up at the ER really late on Sunday night.

yep, it wasn't pretty under the bandage, I got stitches and a tetnaus shot and a pretty good lesson on being more careful when picking up my trimmer.

It is not to bad though, Suzy and I got a good laugh out of it and I am getting out of chores for a few days. The kids are taking turns washing the dishes, etc.
I have a few projects that I created this past weekend that I would like to share with you.

Check this out:

I love the bright vivid colors on this. I used new Hambly special edition papers (honeycomb), and Authentique (genuine collection). I embossed the edges with some WOW powder (blueberry) and added some machine stitching and Epiphany.

Another fun layout that I created this weekend using brand new Hambly:

and some fun sequins and wood embellishments:

well that's it for now. I am going to give my big bandaged finger a break from typing. I will be back tomorrow to show you the rest of my new projects :)
