Lucky Me!

I got to play with Teresa Collins' new "Journal It" line for our April kit at My Creative Scrapbook! I've had my eye on these papers so I was thrilled when I found out we were getting them!!!! Make sure you check out the MCS Blog to see the kits available and the other AMAZING layouts and projects from the other girls!

One of the kits comes with an adorable red suitcase and mini-album to go in the suitcase so that's the kit I used for these projects. Here they are:

That's all for now! Have a GREAT weekend!!!

In love with Felt!

I am currently having a major love affair with the felt from Creative Cafe! I want to make everything out of this stuff. Here's another little quick project I did today with it:

Everything here is Creative Cafe except the ribbon, thread and pillow box.

(Creative Cafe Spirit Felt Shapes, Creative Cafe Flower, Creative Cafe Button, Creative Cafe Planner Punch-Outs, Creatie Cafe White Felt Ric Rac, Creative Cafe Rub-On, White Grosgrain Ribbon, DMC Floss (thread), Marcella by K Pillow Box)

I've also started another project, I found this house-shaped curio shelf at Michaels so I wanted to do a "family" project. I still have to figure out what papers I'll use but I started gathering things that I thought I might use and stuck them in the shelf, I thought that in itself made sort of a neat photo: The start of an altered project...

Well, Spring Break is winding down - I don't want to go back to work! Katie and I had a good week. We made smoothies:

Went to Busch Gardens:

did projects together, went shopping, read a lot, went out to lunch a few times and just had lots of fun. Now back to the grind (until Summer Vacation!). Happy Weekend :)

This was FUN!

I just finished doing a really fun project! I did a "Paintable". You can see them here: IOD Silhouette Gem Frame Fleurish. You just print them out (either on paper or a transparency) and paint them (you should either print them on a laser printer or print with ink jet then make a copy of it on a copier - unless your ink jet uses water-proof ink). I used Staedtler watercolor pencils and a Tombow Blender Pen to paint with ~ I had these from my old Stampin' days.

Here's how it came out:

Here's a close-up of the "painted" part:

Supplies: IOD's Silhouettes Gem Frames Fleurish, IOD's Rue 88 Digital Coordinates Paper Collection, Prima Center Kisses, Staedtler Watercolor Pencils, Tombow Blender Pen, Sheer Creations Ribbon, Maya Road Chipboard Scroll, Bazzill 'Just the Edge' Cardstock Strips.

My Spring Break is winding down :( But, we are going to Busch Gardens in Tampa tomorrow for some fun :) It's been really warm here the past few days (it's gotten up to 90 degrees the past two days), I'm hoping Tampa will be a little cooler! Hope you have a GREAT weekend whatever YOU plan to do!
