It's Scrappin' Saturday!

Hi everyone!

Too funny! I forgot that yesterday was 3D Friday and posted a regular card instead. Actually, I didn't space the 3D part as much as the Friday part! I kind of thought it was a different day. I'm not sure which one really, just not Friday. Who's in charge of me anyway??

Today is Scrappin' Saturday! I've got ... wait for it ... another Mexico page for you! This is a 12x12 layout and I hope to have the matching page here next week.

This page is about the bus (el camion). We took buses everywhere when we lived with families in Guadalajara. Most experiences were good and one was kind of scary, but I won't go there!

I'm still using The Write Stuff DSP with die cuts here. The pages is Old Olive textured card stock with smooth Soft Suede inset. The letters are cut from the Alphabet Simple Letters (an exclusive SU Sissix die) die (#115960). The button is a kraft corduroy button that will be retiring. I took a sliver of the Ruby Red DSP in that paper pack and threaded it through the button holes.

The bus is cut and punched. The square is Sahara Sand card stock with the corners rounded. The bumper is the Word Window punch and the tail lights and wheels are various circle punches. The little square back window are punched with a small square punch.

The photos are dark but you remember what it was like taking photos in 1978! You never knew if your film would turn out, especially after they x-rayed everything in customs!

The journaling circle is from the DSP pack and the top conversion chart is converting miles to kilometers. I recommend saving ticket stubs, charts, maps and the like for scrapbooking. I find that it's helping me fill out pages. Still new and not great at scrapping, but by golly, I'll get there!

Take care of you and see you tomorrow. If you 'd like to see my privacy fence, all finished read about it on my other blog Life on the Exceptional Side.

Much love and joy,



  1. I love that you have a page dedicated to the buses! And your little 'punch art' bus is super cute.

    By the way, I just checked out the photos of the fence and it's AMAZING! I wish my backyard looked like yours :) I'll bet Ryan loves it.

  2. thanks, Nicki! The basket weave fence was less expensive than the lap fence. Plus it lets in the summer breezes.
