Messy Bun Hats

It's been awhile since I did some sort of needlework and when I ran across this messy bun hat I knew my girls would love them and they really did work up pretty quick.  I think they turned out really cute!

I'm so excited, my first ever scrapbooking retreat!  I've partnered up with my friend, Kate Arrasmith (who is an amazing cook so be prepared for yummy food!) to put this on.  For this first one, we picked some where local so if you didn't want to stay over night, you could go back home and come back in the morning.  We have so many fun things planned, make & takes, goodies bags, raffles and more, I'm super excited.  The cost is $85 and there is really limited space (since its our first one we decided to go small, only 12 spaces available) so contact me to sign-up today!

Youth Conference Dance Festival Layout

I started out with the map paper from the Memo Fundamentals papers and I wasn't sure where I was going with it.  I started looking at photos waiting to be scrapbooked and when I saw Megan's pictures from the Youth Conference Dance Festival I knew they were perfect because the did dances from all over the world.  I added Dreamin' Big papers and Snapshot Complements to finish it.  I also did a Pocket Plus page (you can see the front and back of it in the pictures below) I just love those!  I think the layout turned out really cute, and Megan, she's just adorable!
