Something Sweet...

Love is Sweet Card

just playing around with some scraps from my January Mosh Posh kit. Loving those little cupcakes from one of the patterned papers from Basic Grey's Nook & Pantry collection. They are so fun to make your own embellishments with! I added a bit of Stickles (glitter glue) to the cupcakes for a little extra something special.

I got the kit that will be February's kit and it's adorable! You're going to think it's "mooooooo"valous! (That's a little bit of a hint for you)! I've already got a layout done using it so you know that I love it!

Today I had a "working" brunch with the owner of my local scrapbook store and we put together some lists of what we will be bringing into the studio this season as far as new products and manufacturers and I am so excited! For those not in the crafting industry, right now is when the annual winter Craft & Hobby Association meets up and puts on a show for buyers to select what they will sell in their stores and for designers to help them better know what it is that they will be teaching. I love my job so very much...who would have thought that I'd move to the Northwoods and find something so "me." I'm a lucky girl. Speaking of work, here are two baby shower invitations that I put together for a potential customer of ours...

Baby Shower Invites

I kinda like them.

I came across this video and was reminded just exactly of the "why" it is that I started in doing this thing called scrapbooking.

And it made me go digging through some of my older are some from back when I first started scrapping.




I've come a long ways don't you think? I thought it was kind of funny how most of my early pages are all two-pagers yet have almost no journaling! And my decorative edged scissors sure did get used back then! =) Even though they are obviously dated by the papers and old school embellishments and my design capabilities, I wouldn't change a thing about them. It's where all this started after all! Thanks for going down memory lane with me!

Hope you're having a fantastic week!

I love the card! And I love looking at your older layouts. I think it's so neat to see the evolution of my style and how I moved from where I started. Thanks for sharing!

Every time I go back and look at old layouts, I end up re-doing them. At this rate, I'll always be years behind. So I decided to stop looking at them.
