Some Goodies & A Few Layouts...

Hello, it's been a few days since I posted and I have some goodies to share with you and a few layouts. First off I went to Joann's last night and picked up a bunch stamps for a buck each. Every year I tend to grab up the valentine ones that can be used throughout the year, take a look:

Okay so I went a bit crazy on the stamps, hey I had a 40, 50 and 25% off so I came out pretty good! Everything was a $1. I'm in love with hearts, butterflies and flowers so I tend to pick them up first if they are cute.

My Michaels score:

Well not really a score but I thought the new zebra washi tape was cute. I got turquoise and hot pink for $2.99 each, they will probably go on sale next week. The larger pack was $4.99. The heart stamp was $1 and the circle punches were $3.99. 

The ppr was $3.99, anyone that knows me knows that I love pinks, teals, hearts, butterflies, flowers and turquoise...

This is called In Bloom by My Minds Eye. Isn't it cute?

Here are a few layouts I worked on in the last few days:

Completed for January Pagemaps Challange #3. As you can see I layered many scraps of ppr from different brands. This was pretty easy to complete. I took these pics of Fay a few months ago. 

Completed for January Pagemaps. This is challange #1. I took these of Gabby a few months ago. I loved the pics so much but they are not perfect as the sun is directly behind her. So I decided to turn them black and white and used the warmify filter in Picasa. I've seen other layouts with similar pictures so I said why not and used the pictures. The base ppr is EP The Good Life "That Way". I used scraps of Coordination Aegean Circle & BG for the large ppr strips. The ribbon is AC Everyday Ribbon #2. My photo mat is made from CP Pretty Party. I traced the circle pattern by hand and cut. I used Adirondack in Sunshine Yellow and TCW Mini Dots All Around template. I misted with SC Mint Julep. The pink stickers are Thickers Lullaby Lil Bo Peep. 


  1. Cute layouts. Looks like more to come with that fun stuff!
