Paper and border stickers are all Crate Paper, BG pieces, Kaiser mini letters (which are back in stock at Scrappy Chic!!!), misc buttons and brads! So proud of myself for using some super old brads - love it when I can use up some old stuff in my stash!
On a sad note.... my older cat (Babe) is not feeling well... having a hard time breathing - so I am bringing her to the vet today and I am keeping my fingers crossed that its just a hairball or something not too serious :(
Have a great day!

This line from AC - Campy Trail is made for those of you who love to camp...BUT super fun for so many other things as well! I used it for a golf trip I took way back with my husband Alain when we were just dating.... The wood grain really works for the outdoor pics. I was inspired by my friend Angela while creating this little clustered grouping on the side of the title.... All the paper is AC as well as the thickers. The fabric circles and journal spot area new BG life of the party - match so perfect with this line.
And as it always seems to go - the line that is suppose to challenge me the most turns out to be my favorite layout of the month :)
Hope you had a good weekend! I did some shopping on Saturday and got some great deals! Used my 25% off at JoAnns - picked up the Martha Stewart circle cutter. So far I tested it and I really like it! Full review once I have had more time to really play!!!
Have a great day!

Remember about two weeks ago LYB was having a sketch challenge over on their blog with the Twig collecion? Well I played a long.....just not in time :)
I started this layout a couple weeks ago and it sat on my desk needing journaling and some finising touches......
I love this collection! You can see how Angela used it here..... and Lisa's take on the same sketch here.
Used some new Thickers that have a wood grain-y look to them. The fabric banners and borders are my favotire in this collection!

I love this pic of us on Hollywood Blvd - trying on some funny shades! Chris and Fawn forgot theirs and got a steal of a deal on some hot shades. I did not buy the heart glasses .. lol :)
Are you tired of banners yet? Well I hope not because they are still the hottest trend! Maya Road came out with these canvas banners .......
Its hard to see but I used some banner stamps from Hero Arts on the canvas to give it little polka dots! Used my new Jenni Bowlin ink as well - my review is in and so far I love them!!! In this picture you can see the great texture this paper has as well!
The stacked 'flower' on the right side is also stamped with the coordinating MME stamps! Used some pop dots and inked the edges in brown. The border stickers used are all from the new Crate Paper lines - I got all 4 border stickers sets... so I don't remember which one was from which. But I did stamp on the pink one with the MME border stamps! (Angela will be so proud of all my stampage!)
If you havn't been over to Catch the Moments Kits you should check out all the new stuff they have! The Echo Park - for the record as well as all the new Crate Paper and MME can be found at a really great price!
Thanks for stopping by!

This weekend I brought my friend Josie to Scrappy Chic. It was her first visit and I think it was a little overwhelming! There is nowhere in Windsor to get all the latest and greatest! I was joking with her that once she gets a taste for buying paper by the piece she will not want to go back to those flimsy stack papers :) I spent almost all my yard sale earnings.... but I got so much great stuff!
On our way home we stopped at Mexican Town for lunch...... yummy! Lets just say it was a cheese overload and sooooo good :) We were even nice enough to bring back leftovers for the guys for dinner!
Once we got home we got scrapping! I am proud that I got 2 layouts done and journaling finished on another - plus helped Josie with some of hers. Pretty productive day!
My first layout is for the DT at Scrappy Chic - New Echo Park - For the Record!
Just some pics of Fawn, Chris and I being silly at CHA. They had a big backdrop with the hollywood sign - which was great since out pics of the actual sign didn't turn out as well as we hoped!
Some details of the journaling --- Check out the teeny tiny mini letter stickers from Kaiser Craft! For scale - think about 1/4 the size of the Cosmo Cricket ones!!
---Told you I would totally use them Chris :)
(Excuse the sideways pic - silly blogger won't let me upload it straight!)
Almost the entire time we were scrapping on saturday night.... Maya had to be on mine or Josie's lap!!! She wanted in on the Girls night :)
Hope you had a good weekend!
