This pic is from Oyster Baker this past year:) All papers are BG Color Me Silly. I really like how all the bright colors stand out against the black. Very "fiesta";) I got this idea off of 2Peas.This one's a lift of a lift. Lal lifted it off someone and I lifted it off Lal:) This was a real quick one as well as the previous one. Pic of the kids a few weeks ago when Lij was spending some time over here:) Back paper is MME. Teresa Collins diecut from the Damask, K&Co. Mira diecuts, MM border strip, Cricut cut flourish and Autumn Leaves stamp.
This one was a little more time consuming...a little more my style;) Lifted off of sb.com. Pic of Mattie, Mark and Nick at his birthday "party" just recently. This is the only pic of them together and the only pic of Mattie with Mark since he was very little. I'm sure this is going to mean a lot to him later in life.
Paper Studio and MME paper (polka dot), Bazzill paper flowers and Prima Collage flowers, MM decorative brads, Tim Holtz Grungeboard that I covered with gold Stickles, HS ghost clocks, bronze Scribbles for my flourishes and Autumn Leaves stamps for the bigger flourishes. I can't remember where I got that little key from:)
So yesterday V spent they day with MIL as she so often does. I just chilled at home and got some stuff done. Went through the school supply lists and checked to see what we had and what we still needed to buy. There was very little we needed to get. Good thing we always stock up when things are really cheap, it pays off:)
Vacuumed out my truck, pulled a few weeds. I was just about to wash my truck when I got a call from an old friend...Yay!!! We met up for some drinks at Chacho's up the street. It'd been about 7 years since the last time we saw each other!!! But really...the time never seems to matter. We always just pick up where we left off:)
Aren't we cute??? ;) This was taken with her camera phone. I think it's pretty good for a phone. It was kind of hard to take the pic ourselves, but she showed me lots of pics she had on the phone and they looked AWESOME. It's one of those new IPhones. I think I want one;)
So yesterday I got a totally AMAZING surprise in the mail. There is a woman on 2Peas whose gallery I totally love. I have lifted a few of her LOs. They are just GORGEOUS. So a couple of weeks back I peamailed her to ask her about a certain paper that I'd seen her use on some LOs and that I'd been seeing quite a bit and couldn't figure out who is was from. So she messaged me back and let me know it was Prima and that she'd pick some up for me at her LSS...How cool is that??? Then she lets me know she's already mailed it out and added some extras...OMG!!! Can this get any better???!!! So I get this in the mail yesterday...
SO, SO loving the papers and the huge crystal flourishes...everything is just SO FAB!!! I can not belive this woman's generousity!!! I feel like I just got mail from a scrap celebrity...TOO cool. I can't wait to do something with all my really great new goodies:)
Today we took in the first showing of Journey to the Center of the Earth...and it just happened to be the 3D showing. It was SO cool. Excellent movie. We all loved it. Went to Target to get the few school supplies we still needed off our lists. Got V another school outfit. Headed to M's. OMG!!! They had the MM Passport line!!! I got a few of the embellies. The papers were not on the shelf yet so I gotta check back in a couple of days. I don't want to miss them. The paper racks were there and marked, but they were empty:( I have SO been wanting those and missed them when they were at 911. Plus got a 40% off coupon for next week so I want to pick up the embellie box:)
Kept hearing about the Cricut Storybook cart. I was planning on buying the Home Accents at HL. They have it for $49.99...Note...M's now has the Solutions carts. Saw them there today...So I go online and look at the Storybook cart and SO fell in love with it!!! I ordered it off of Hallmark for $59.99, regular $89.99. Only $5 shipping. So for $15 more, I got this super awesome cart. It has SO many options as opposed to the Solutions carts which are kind of limited on choices. This cart has TONS of flourishes, flowers, corners, borders...You HAVE to go check this out. It hink this has to be the best cart so far.
That's all I have to share for now. Hope everyone is doing well and enjoying the rest of the summer. Can't believe the beginning of school is just around the corner.
