And the Magic Number is 32!

32 Pages completed this weekend ... can you believe it?! Well, they're almost completed. There's just a litte bit of journalling left to do and then I can say they're completed but that's pretty amazing.

This weekend I went away with my good friend Susan to a scrapbook retreat in Canmore and I had an awesome time! All the girls there were so much fun, the food was fantastic, and I got so much accomplished! We booked ourselves in for another weekend in May and I am so looking forward to it.

Once I get some of the layouts finished up I will post my favorites. Have a great day!

Though the Years

Have you ever had an embellishment that is perfect for a layout but the color is slightly off or it looks too new for your vintage vibe? Boy do I have the solution for you.

I was looking for some numbers in order to put the year of my car on this layout. I didn't like the ones I had, the colors were a little too bright so I sanded them down a little bit and then rub some ink on them in more desirable colors. I love how they turned out, they look a little aged just like my car.

I also sanded the metal circle embellishments so that they didn't look so new and this brought out the silver background of the embellishment.
I hope this helps you with your future layouts.
