fun stuff

I’m writing this late Thursday night, after having a great dinner out with Jessica (newtnewt) who’s here from Oregon. We’ll be shopping this evening. . . I can’t wait! Before heading out to dinner, I checked the mail and found a lumpy package with a gorgeous card and a stamp. I laughed, and knew I had to use it here. Thanks, Angie!


The card started out with Beate’s sketch for this weekend. LOVE it! 🙂 Check out what Beate, Cami, Charmaine, Laurie, Lori, Mary Jo, and Sharon came up with – they’re amazing!

Let me know if you’d like to know what I used. It’s just stuff that was on my messy stamp table when I got home. 🙂

Why was it messy? I had another package in the mail earlier this week from sweet Lisa Strahl. What a surprise that was! I’m so excited about her new Scrapblocks from CHF. They are such GORGEOUS detailed designs in red rubber – and I’m in love after making this spread from this sketch (from my favorite Saturday morning hangout!). I cannot wait to get the ones I ordered. Thank you, Lisa!


And yeah, I need to figure out how to take pictures of 12×12 double-page spreads!




I used the Pin Dot and Writing Paper Scrapblocks for the page, along with her Motivational Centers and a bunch of Ranger stuff – Grungeboard, Crackle Paint, Stickles . . . good stuff!

Back later with more. Have a great weekend!

    And one of these days your beautiful pages will make me feel so guilty that I’ll start scrappin’ again. It’s been years since I’ve done a page. So bad!
