Weekend scrapping

I have a weekend off!  For most people that's pretty normal, but for me, it's only a one-in-five possibility. 

I worked on this special orange project:

It's another page for my cocktail mini-album, and it's for a special random challenge here.  I'm one of the Dollies so I'm not in the running for a RAK, but I really wanted to join in the fun too!

... And I also made a shaped card:

I used the sketch at the Scrap Boutique birthday cybercrop. I'm also entering my card at:
