It's Reveal day today!
OH my.. i had such a busy week at work and I created this page yesterday morning. I am so not a morning scrapper, but i must admit the page was fun to create. I am addicted to my Edge Distresser ... from Close To My Heart. It's Fabulous and so easy to use ... A must have!!!

This picture is a self portrait of Hubby and I goofing around with the camera. I told him I needed a few New pics and this is one of them.
The papers I used were from the new Basic Grey Lemonade Collection. Great colors and so fun to use...

Grown up Girl & In Love!

It's Sunday! That means I have a reveal for you !!!
This is a layout I did of my friend Stephie ... I used October Afternoon Cherry Hill papers, and a sketch by Allison Cope. ( Sketch 60) at Creative Scrappers.

(In Love)

I also finished a layout for the Creative Scrappers Layout Kits ... this was using Jenni Bowlin papers. So fun to play with! The papers are a bit flimsy but fantastic for distressing and easy to match. I didn't use any special embellies or bling etc... just papers. I cut out a flower and added a few pieces to make it more dimensional, so easy and i think it turned out pretty cute!

(Grown Up Girl)

It's a rainy Sunday here today... so I am off to play with paper and glue dots!
Chow for Now!

NOT a Purple Lover!

Alright, I know most scrapbookers love color.. really any color right? Well I must admit i don't! I don't like PURPLE!!! For some reason, it just doesn't do it for me.

I had this beautiful picture of my sister just waiting to be scrapped (again!), and I had a few papers from Rose Moka and these Petaloo flowers that I wanted to use .. and well I started creating a layout and ... i just don't know what it was ... but i think it was the purple!

I am not one to scrap with bling flourishes, and i did enjoy them on this page.. i cut them up in 3 pieces and used them with the flower leaves.. i like that part!

( i can tell people don't really like it cause i only got a few comments at! hahahah!!! ) so i guess i am not the only one who Doesn't Like Purple! What is it about this color? is it because it's a mix between pink and blue ? or is it because we don't see enough of it?

the question today is .. Do yOu LIkE PUrPle?! ( see my poll above!)

Today, yes Today is my last day of Vacation ... Sigh. I had such a fabulous week scrappin and just playing online. I did nothing really .... like seriously nothing! I did laundry, dishes, went to a crop, scrapbooked, .... scrapbooked .... and watched So You Think You Can Dance! That's pretty much it. It rained for atleast 5 days .. with fog and cold damp weather. So Monday I am back to work. Am I looking forward to it .. um NO! Really I would love to work from home.. someday maybe!

I played with some Lilybee Papers last night. The photo is of my niece again, and I have no problems finding a title for this one!


I am so enjoying my edge distresser lately. I think every page I've created in the last few weeks has some distressing and circle flowers ... I promise to try something new... soon! HAHAH! I also sprayed some Green Maya Mist on this entire page and used my pop dots for the flowers. I like!

Our Sketch 59 is posted this morning at Creative Scrappers - it's a simple sketch by Me!
Will you try it?

That's All for this morning!
Looks like the sun wants to make an appearance.

My Favorite Magazine!

I am certainly one to collect any type of Scrapbooking Magazine, for some reason I love them! Over time I have been a frequent buyer of Creating Keepsakes, Simple Scrapbooks, Scrapbook Etc, and Scrapbook Trends - add a few other single issues here and there. BUT ... over the past few months I haven't been purchasing as much of the US publications cause I felt a little ... non inspired with them. I browsed online to see what other magazines were available out there, and BINGO! I found a magazine that I am in TOTAL love with!!!

Histoires de Pages offers me something DIFFERENT. Published in France, tons of ideas, different pages with a style I am so in love with.. a FREESTYLE, or a KAWAII style maybe as Vanessa Colant would say. It has beautiful sketches, mini albums, fabulous pages and so much more. The magazine cost about 20$ CAD once it's shipped from France.

that's your inspiration for today!
I have a mini album finished with OA papers just waiting to be posted ....

HAPPY CANADA DAY! We are off to visit family today for a picnic and pictures!
