wednesday . . .


Hello everyone!!  It has been quite a busy, exciting week - hoping to get a little scrappin' time in tonight.  I will be out of town all next week in snowy upstate New York (well at least that is what the forecast is saying) - can't wait!!  

First up - a Design Team Creation for Imaginisce.  I was given a HUGE box full of all sorts of goodies from Imaginisce & was so excited to play!!  This project features their Polar Expressions line which is too cute!!!  When I saw this little cardinal I was so excited because I had this alterable wood bird house just waiting for it!! I am a secret hoarder of mini-albums & alterable items - but sadly they are all in baskets in my scraproom - I just end up usually doing layouts.   But, finally I used one :)  

I will have some more projects for Imaginisce later this week so check back :)

Michelle from Color Me Daisy sent me this gorgeous kit to work with - such classy Christmas papers - a mix of Pink Paislee & Fancy Pants.  What I especially was tickled over was this music sheet fabric - how awesome is that????

Here is my December sketch for Color Me Daisy:

And here is my layout featuring this fabulous kit:

I also received this adorable kit from Mimi over at That Scrappy Girl - full of Pink Paislee papers & a mini set of Elle's Studio goodies!!  

Here is my December sketch for That Scrappy Girl:

And here is the layout I came up with using this awesome kit:

This is my little man 2 years ago - how time flies!!

Finally - I can end without sharing my Wish List Wednesday :)

First up - Tessa Ann - she makes these adorable buttons - I have to get some!!!

Next up - Evalicious - I love these felt goodies with the typed sentiments - definitely need these!!

And my last share - White Serenade - I LOVE sheet music & book paper & the fact that this artist incorporates it into everything - so cool!!

Thanks so much for everyone's well wishes in regards to yesterday's post - you are all too kind!!!
