It's been an awful week- nothing but crap all around and the fact that it's only WEDNESDAY makes me shudder. You'll have to excuse me while I go back to quietly reading fantasy books, eating brownies and downing several Texas size mugs of tea.
In any case I had to put my Brooklyn girl pants on.
I told myself- self- get a life- a real one- stop living vicariously through social networks.
And got on with my day.
Paper Issues has a new Valentine's Day link party going on. I ordered my Crate Paper Hearts collection pack from the Paper Issues store and I'm so glad I did- budget be damned.
What I didn't know was that the pack comes with flat die cuts- not the usual chipboard. I actually like the die cuts better since they allow me to layer them in my own way. Unfortunately the collection doesn't have matching alpha stickers. I would have LOVED to have some woodgrain or burlap mini stickers to work with but I have a HUGE stash of Thickers that need using anyway.
Here's the page:

|Layering with flat elements keeps the page from bulking up- I already have a huge storage issue. |
Those butterfly pins are SO darn CUTE!!
PS have you seen the Crate sneaks? I LOVE the new Storyteller line! The colors are hella cool and the prints are so eclectic! I can't wait to get my hands on it and get to work! I also LOVE the new Studio Calico wood veneer pieces and ALL the My Mind's Eye collections! Very excited about CHA sneaks!
Swing by Paper Issues and post your Valentine's project!
SNEEKY PEEK at my February True Xoxo Girl's page! What is it about Valentine's Day that makes me wanna scrap? I think it's the red / magenta color palette- one of my fave combos EVER.

The Instax photo fit this one perfectly. Dave dressed Lola and posed her B-Girl style- she's too darned cute.
GRATUITOUS BABY SHOT!!!
|Can you BELIEVE I put that outfit on her and let her out in PUBLIC? Poor kid.|
