A Great Start

A Great Start is ironically the last two page spread for a vacation from last year!  I'm really taking this scrapbook-in-whatever-order-strikes-me thing very seriously.  Ha, ha!  Some days of our trips I break down into lots of pages and some seem to flow together as this one did.

We had a wonderful first day in Santa Rosa looking at architecture, a gardens, visiting a winery and taking in a wonderful view of the city.  We also went to Jack London's park/museum and finally dinner out with one of our friend's mother, a very charming lady.  It was a really great kickoff to our visit to Northern California.

Project Notes:
Mostly this layout is a collage with papers filling in the blanks.  I did a little stamping using Fifth Avenue Floral to tie everything together.

And I added some bling to the pattern paper.

I'm a bit behind on the Explore class not having done anything yet with today's prompt. I need to move some frame files over from my old computer.  And I've been anxious to try out the new Stampin' Up! colors I've had for at least 2 weeks now.  I never have anything that long I don't use!  It's just been one of those busy week yet I don't seem to have gotten much crafty done and it is already Wednesday night???  I have been working on a new business website and helping my husband with a couple of things.  Today I got to visit a friend in from out of town and that was a treat.

Oh well, the weekend will be here soon enough for crafty pleasures.

Thanks for visiting!
