Excitment Plus

Guess what arrived today?? Our tickets to Chicago and New York!! I am so excited, it is really happening. Alex and I are heading on a fantasic adventure.

We are flying out to LA, then to Chicago. In Chicago we are attending CHA - for you scrapbook lovers out there, this is a dream come true. 3 days of trade show and 2 days of consumer show. We get to check out all the new release products. Also get to meet some of the creators of some of our favourite crafting products.

After CHA we are heading off to New York for 2 days of shopping! I am very lucky to be celebrating my birthday while we are in Chicago and I plan on buying myself a few nice presents in New York. Cant Wait!!!

Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Scrap Sleep Over

Alex & I were invited to a Scrap night sleep over at the house of the lovely Sherry Mendoza. We also got to scrap with Lisa Warren, Kim Arnold, Stacey Rigby & Jane Clark. We spent the night scrapping and laughing. We did not get into bed until 3am! The next day we had a guided tour of the Junk Yard. So so many thing that I could spend money on.

Scrapping beside Lisa and Kim was very daunting. They are so amazing and so talented. I found that I spent most of my time watching them scrap, when I should have been scrapping myself. I did get two pages done.

This is Will and Coco (our old cat). It is such a great photo I just love it. I used Prima flowers (Thanks Sherry) and stamped some great flourishes.

This one is of Joe my now 8 year old. Phil (my lovely Hubby) took these photos and I just love them. I used the Prima stamps on Kraft Bazzil and distressed the edged with Tim Holtz Distress inks. I painted the 'Love' with the new Viva Metallic Paints (they are so cool). Lisa helped my finish it off (way too late for my brain to work), with the twine and buttons. I love this page!

Thanks for visiting.
