Happy Easter

     Happy Easter to all who celebrate. Hope it was a good day for everyone. Bill and I had a yummy dinner at Bill's parents' house with them, Mom, Candy, Mike, Bella, Bella's friend, and Paul.
     Here is a layout I made of Lisa, Robin's and my visit to Williamsburg where we had our own retreat. At a formal retreat like Scrapper's Dream Vacation, there are always nametags to wear, so Lisa made us our own just like the official ones. I thought that was great and deserving of a page, so off I went! I like how it turned out!
     I used some Queen and Company (old but loved) self-adhesive felt borders, cut to fit, and some equally old Magic Mesh. You will find that I don't care how old or outdated a supply is; if I love it, I use it. The letters are Pink Paislee and the small flowers and hearts are Doodlebug. The Skittles were hand dyed using alcohol inks. I included the actual tag Lisa made, as well as some cropping stickers and flowers I had. I filled in with assorted Basic Grey bling. The result is a memory I will treasure.
     I hope everyone has a good week. It was 88 degrees here today, so it seems to have jumped from winter to summer, but as my dad used to say,"What can you do?" Have a great week everyone.


  1. Hi Trisha! I just found your blog (linked to facebook). You are a talented scrapbooker - I'm impressed. Later today when I awake from my 'recovery from spring break' nap I am going to add you to my blog roll.

  2. LOVE the page and name tags are required and best of all it truly doesn't matter how old scrap stuff is it all helps create awesome memories :)

  3. Thanks, Kathie and Pauline!I appreciate it!

  4. absolutely perfect layout to sum up our perfect weekend scrapbooking. I'm so glad you will treasure that name tag, I spent hours on it....hehehe

  5. Thanks, Lisa! Just the fact that you did something with the word 'tag' in it makes it all the more special!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  6. Hi there, love the layout and I agree that old stuff is just as good, and is as inspiring as the new tfs
