I only wish that Mahsa was there to be in the picture too... she was inside with her family.
The paper is from Websters Pages - Life's portrait. I really love the soft colors... the sparklers.... the fabric borders!!! I made this flower by cutting hearts out of one of the fabrics, then layering them together to look like petals. Jenni Bowlin button in the middle and a fabulous jewel sparkler in the middle! The bling swirl is by prima... literally I am addicted to these swirls :)
I used some of the BG Capella journal spots with this line... they look like they are made to go together! Which is great since my other papers for the design team this month are from the Capella line. I love when embellishments can be so versatile!
Last night I actually did some gardening. I bought 4 hanging baskets and then took them apart and put the flowers in my window boxes. I love how it turned out!!! And did didn't have to wait for the tiny flowers to grow.. they are already filled it. I will share some pictures tomorrow :)

This week I have played a lot of golf so I have been slacking in the Scrapbooking side! lol. But I did qualify for club champion yesterday as well as the Captain's trophy today (for non golfers those are two golf events at my golf course ;) ) I am playing in a fun team event on Saturday with my mom and a friend... its my favorite of the year so I hope we don't get any rain!

For my shower I was given some Tea Forte. Their English Breakfast is now my favorite tea. I have been trying all new kinds of teas, but I still like black tea the best. And as much as I love tea..... i HATE coffee! Even the smell makes my stomach turn. So at Starbucks I have a -venti Awake tea, one bag in one out, leave room for milk! Who thought ordering tea could be so complicated :) lol.
Now, 4 years later (almost to the day!) my brother's fiance is having her bridal shower this weekend.... and guess what the theme is??? TEA :) She loves tea like I do so we thought it would be a cute theme. We didn't take it too far, just little tea cups on all the tables with different treats in them and then these cute favors! We ordered some Tea Forte online in bulk and put two pyramids in little white organza bags. Super cute and easy I must say :)
All there is left to do now is make a little 'thank you' note to slip into each bag.
I did pick up my new Scrappy Chic kit the other day and I LOVE IT!! I can't wait to play with all the fun stuff. I have papers from Websters Pages - Life's Portrait and BG - Capella to work with this month. Both lines will be very nice with pictures from the shower this weekend :)
Now I must get to cleaning my house.... boo! lol. I hate to clean!!

This past weekend I had so much fun at the Mega Meet!!! I feel that the show was not as good as past years.... but still worth going. The Scrappy Chic booth looked awesome and I had lots of fun working with the girls on Friday. I got lots of new goodies to play with.... but it will have to wait for next week!!!
I planned to bring my cord so I could upload some pictures while I was here.... but I forgot :( So I will just have to do some written updates!!!
Hope you have a great week!

But this weekend I did get these two layouts done!
This first one is mostly LYB-Freshprint Laundry line. I love the colors in this. Grey is my new favorite color... I have bought a lot of light grey clothing lately! Not loving the way it turned out... something is missing ???? Doesn't feel cohesive. But I love the colors together!!! I bought almost everything in this line!!!
Second layout is much more 'me'. Love red, orange and dark blue together. This is Pink Paislee - 360 degrees line. Its one of my favorite releases of CHA winter! Lots of thickers here... and a new one for me is the Tim Hotlz tickets! So cute.
So tomorrow is the BIG day! MEGA MEET! Well it actually started today :) But I am working tomorrow and I am soooo excited. If you are there please swing by the Scrappy Chic booth and say HI :)

I had lots of fun yesterday at the crop with Angela. I got two pages mostly done... and did a little shopping. Today I have two sets of invites I need to finish up and do the journaling on the two pages from the crop. Tomorrow I will have lots of pictures to share of all the invites and things I have been working on!
I am counting down the days to Mega Meet! It starts on Thursday but I will be working there on Friday at the Scrappy Chic booth. I hope you stop by and say HI if you are attending.
Also, Momenta has asked me to help them with their survey. They are looking for both scrappers and non scrappers to participate. Click here: http://www.surveymonkey.com/s/29VQLD9 for the survey.
