Two great tastes that are great together!

Although Peanut Butter Cups are my favorite candy, I'm not talking about them :)
What I am talking about is Sassafras & Disney pictures! I have been having so much fun playing with my vacation photos and pairing them with mostly my Apple Jack & Nerdy Bird stuff, that I thought I would share.

I also used some Felties and stickers from Bella Blvd., Echo Park & Making Memories on this one.

This is a 2-pager... the whole reason I bought the Nerdy Bird line was because of these Tea Cups and our vacation that I knew would include some large and colorful tea cups!

Unfortunately, no sketch today because I am needing to relinquish my laptop to the hubby for some research of a different kind... I'll try to post one on Sunday... and maybe even a bonus!

Happy Scrapping!

I MUST have these, too!

Check out the Sassafras blog for today's sneaky peeky!
Besides some awesome new chipboard, they have also unveiled these yummy flowers!

Counting me in now, too...

And another Sassafras CHA preview... This would be soooooo perfect for pics of my nieces!
The only thing I wish they had with this collection is a new batch of Felties!
Check it out on the Sass blog!

Oh Goody!

I love seeing all the new CHA reveals from my favorite manufacturers, but I can't help thinking how much money I will be spending on this stuff! Sassafras has exposed the first of theirs
on their blog... I love the classic Shabby Chic patterns with bold colors!
Go to their blog and check it out!

I'm so trying this...

I have wanted to try Glimmer Mist forever, but one thing that inhibits me is the price. After a quick Google search I found this great tutorial for making your own: Make Your Own Glimmer Mist. I'm trying it and will let you know how it works!

I MUST get these papers

I didn't think it was possible for me to fall in love with a paper line as much as I have Sassafras, but Graphic 45's newest lines are making me DROOL! Usually I love their paper anyways, but they're not necessarily ones I could see myself using. That has changed. The ones I am absolutely head over heels with are Steampunk Debutante:
And Hallowe'en in Wonderland:

I can't scrapbook my Alice in Wonderland pictures from Disneyland without these.

I plan on ordering some on payday from Scrapbook Express. They have an awesome sale going on right now- the whole pack of papers for $15.99 plus shipping. 

Speaking of awesome specials, Chiara at House of Paper is making room for new product and has stuff on DEEP discounts! If she has any left, I'll be ordering from her on payday, too. And if you go there, save some for me, will ya?

Happy Scrapping!

Some Disney Fun

I didn't get any scrapping done today, but I have a bunch of layouts from our vacation album to share :) But first, a sketch for you!
For this sketch, I used pictures from the California Screamin' rollercoaster in California Adventure. For my layout, I used papers from Die Cuts With a View, Sandylion and Me & My Big Ideas, as well as a journal spot & photo corner from Sassafras and a ticket from Jenni Bowlin.

And here's some more layouts to share!

This is one of my favorite layouts in this album so far! I had to hand-cut the shaped paper and the photo corners and also doodled the stars on the photo corners. The car paper is from Die Cuts With a View and the  border and decorative pieces under the shaped paper are Sassafras. 

I wasn't sure how I wanted to use the paper on this one at first, but I like how it came out. The paper is from Sandylion, and the rest is just cardstock. The chipboard star tag is actually from a shirt I bought (Converse One Star) and I liked it so much I saved it. I think it goes well with this layout!

More to come when I get more time!

Just Call Me The Cleaner...

Normally, I like all living creatures. Yes, I am afraid of big hairy spiders, but the little ones are not bad. I now have an exception to the rule. Since we had such a mild winter, not all the bugs died that would have normally, so we are being overrun with these annoying little black ants! They are inside, outside, everywhere! They swarm anything and everything, like this (not my house- found this online so you would get the idea):
They're just ooky! They smell bad when you squish them, too. Anyhow, these little buggers have sent me on a major cleaning frenzy. I'm pretty sure that I have annoyed everyone else in the house with it. I am bordering on OCD cleaning. We have sprayed all kinds of chemical and natural sprays as well as set out traps, but no avail. If anyone has any great ideas that work to get rid of these pests, I'm all ears!

Summer is Here!

Sorry no updates but the last two days have been too hot to scrap! Our skies look like this:
And, being in the lovely area that is Western Washington, the only real air conditioning is in the stores. It is supposed to cool down a little, so, hopefully I will be able to scrap again soon!

A Fresh New Look

I got tired of my polka dots and decided to try on some stripes! How do they look?

I will not be posting a sketch on Wednesday this week because I will be going out of town for work for the day. I will get it posted on Thursday. Until then, though, please check out one of the challenge blogs that I have below!
