Girlfriend Time

Hi everyone! Hope you are all having an excellent weekend so far. I have been doing some spring cleaning. There is so much to do but at least I have been able to do some of it outside and enjoy this weather we are having.

This layout is of a lunch that a few girlfriends of mine did back in 2007. We like to get together for lunch to celebrate each other's birthday's but we are always so rushed and we thought we needed to use one of those national holidays that us bankers get off to have a girls lunch. What a great idea! Mexican food and good friends...what can be better?

The base paper is an olive color that I picked up on one of the sale tables at Get Scrappy. The distressed yellow paper is from Basic Grey but I am not sure of the name of that one but I know that it was new a few years ago. See the corners? I used a corner rounder to give it a different look.

Here is a close up of the rub on. Stampin Up came out with rub ons last year and I just love them. The come off onto your project so easily. I was going for a simple yet elegant look for this layout and this rub on gave me just the right effect.

This verse is actually an eyelet...well I should say you punch a hole and on the back of the metal square is the stick part of the eyelet so you push it through the hole and then flip your paper over and set the eyelet with your eyelet tool. Pretty nifty huh? I picked these up at Michael's. The three little flowers are another rub on from SU.

Well that is pretty much it about my layout in a nutshell! Thanks for peekin' in! Enjoy the weekend!

I love the rub-ons and the eyelet - now that is TOO cool! The layout looks vintage-like to me; it's gorgeous!
