Scrapbook Friday - TGIF!!

Hello and Happy Weekend Everyone!
Last week, I was scheduled to post a scrapbook layout for My Cricut Craftroom, but my laptop decided to
crash and I was out of town for a wedding and very busy with family.  I was disappointed that the layout I had rushed to get done and posted before I left for the wedding did not get shown to you all.
Since it IS Scrapbook Friday again - although it is not fitting today's theme at My Cricut Craftroom,
I wanted to share it anyway!
It seems very appropriate for Friday!
For the first time, I used The Cricut Craft Room Digital Images and purchased the new
Mixed Drinks images.  How cute they are!  Perfect for this layout!
The left hand page features my beautiful daugther and the Margarita in the images are from the
Ole' cartridge.

I did a LOT of embossing with the Cuttlebug and various folders as well as a lot of inking on the edges.
The margaritas have "stickles" on the rims of the glasses for the "salt"!

I used foam squares EVERYWHERE...and it gives a TON of dimension to the layout.
For the title, I spread it out over two pages - and some of the title is computer generated print and some of the  words are with foam letter stickers in lime green (although they are not really showing up as lime!).
I thought this was a fun and different way to add the title!

The right side page is my friend Sharon and her daughter Samantha.  Sam calls me her "other Mom", since we became neighbors with their family when she was only 3 and we've spent a lot of time together through the years.

She has since moved out of town, but this photo was taken on her last visit!  Interestingly, she just happened to be in town this week, and we had to repeat the photo at the same Mexican Restaurant!
Guess that means another fun layout is in order!
Again, one of the Margarita glasses on the right page is from Mixed Drinks, the other is from Ole, as is the cute salsa dish with a chip in it!!

Here is a close up of the rest of the title on the right hand side!

Do you know what song that is from? Earth, Wind and Fire!  A perfect "party" song and a great title for this layout
of ladies I have such fun with and truly love !
Can you see why I was so disappointed to not get to post this for the "Drinks" day at My Cricut Craftroom!
I hope you liked it as much as I do!  PLEASE PLEASE leave a comment - tell me your favorite drink while you are at it!
TGIF!  Happy Weekend!!

Hello Teresa!
I think your margaritas look good enough to drink. I believe I've heard somewhere that the margarita may be one of your favorite drinks. I prefer mine frozen! Very pretty ladies in the photos and you all seem to be having a fun time! Glad you took the time to share these posts even though it may have been later than you wanted. Computers can be frustrating! CHEERS!
