lego fun

supplies~bazzil black cardstock, everything else American Crafts
Another page from the crop I went to last weekend. I actually got 4 pages almost entirely completed that night...and not a one since then. I do have some new yummy products I picked up the other day though and I'm itching to use them. It's probably one of my favorite boy lines ever. I'm getting to work today on some layouts with it. I'm going to try and bust out a b-day card for J while I'm at it. Hard to believe he's going to be 8 in a couple of weeks.

On another note, were any of you following the new Pink Paislee stuff from CHA? Well I have been and Barb has some in stock! The Enchanting collection is ready for purchase! And while I was over there getting the link I noticed that the Deal of the Day is 50% off all Maya Road. She's got stamps, alterables, ribbon, rub-ons and some embellies. Hurry over and check it out!

love is still in the air!

It's time for another challenge at Embellish-Online!
Here are the details.

Friday Challenge 30: February 27
Host: Julie
Challenge: Love is Still in the air!
Details: Even though Valentines day is over, Feb. is the month of love. Scrap someone or something you love. If you're not a scrapper create a card with embellishments that you love.

Here is the thread if you would like to play along.
This layout uses the yummy Urban Prairie line from Basic Grey. And it looks like it's on sale!

Leave me a comment if you decide to play along! I want to check out what you've done.
Have a great day.

i heart u

Another Stampin' Up page. This one used the Love Sparkles Simply Scrappin kit. I always love these kits, buy them and never use them. Or I use all the paper for cards and go to use it on layout and I don't have enough paper to do even 1 layout with it. I had such plans for an older winter kit and couldn't make it happen with what I had left. SO I decided to bust this one open straight away. I've only done 1 page but I have big plans for more.

I promised you a layout and I'm here to deliver! I busted out my new Stampin' Up! stuff the other day. I haven't played with any SU! goodness for a while and I had so much fun. This is the Sale-a-bration paper pack (spend $50 get something free :>). It's gorgeous. I totally had different plans for this paper but I'm so glad I used it with this photo. Add the ADORABLE chipboard birdie and I was in love. Doesn't this picture just make you happy?! Seriously I get a warm fuzzy feeling every time I look at it.

it's been a while!

So sorry I haven't updated in a while. I got really sick a couple of weeks ago and still have not kicked it! I am feeling better and have finally gotten some pages scrapped. I'm in the process if putting the finishing touches on them and taking the pictures. By tomorrow I'll have a couple of pages to share with you.Hope you all are healthy. It is such a beautiful day here today I wish I could be outside but sadly I have to get to work. I'll check in later today or tomorrow!

This is another one of my projects for the Embellish-Online Feb. Gallery. I had hopes of squeezing in a few valentine day cards but they never happened because I was hit hard with the flu this week. Just today am I able to actually accomplish anything...and it's not much I tell ya!

Don't you think Twitterpated is just perfect for some fun park pictures?? I do.
hope it was a great weekend!

tea time

I had a chance to participate in one of the challenges this weekend for the SCS virtual scrapbooking night. I had hopes of doing more, that was before I got sick and spent the rest of the weekend in bed. I'm feeling a little better today so I plan on busting out at least a couple more challenges. There were some really good ones! Here is a link to all the challenges if you want to check it out for yourself.

All supplies American Crafts except the buttons which are Stampin Up and the butterfly is a martha punch.
