Scrap-tastic! ....You + Me

Hello friends!  A couple of weekends ago I attended a fabulous overnight scrap to celebrate a dear friend's birthday.  We had SUCH a good time scrapping and laughing and staying up way too late.  I was so happy to get my scrap on for a few hours.  Ahhhhhh, it's like flexing muscles that have been out of commission for far too long!  :) 
This creative imaginations paper has been in my stash for a couple years now waiting for an opportunity to scrap THIS photo of my sweetie and I on his 42nd birthday.  My amazing girlfriend was at the ready with her camera and captured the moment for us.  Hubs was actually volunteering that day with local fire departments and had worked a long, hot day (note sunburn!) before arriving at the food tent to a surprise birthday cake from me! ....and the best part, a happy birthday seranade from all the guys and gals he had been helping out that day!  It's rare that I pull off a surprise with this guy, and with the help of my friends we were able to surprise him.  It's a memorable day for both of us!

Thanks so much for walking down memory lane with me today!
