Yes, we got snow AGAIN!

Poor owen, he was so upset today because gym gets cancelled when they have a snow delay. The one thing he looks forward to, well that and snack and recess. So I promised him an exclusive game of hairy ball this week. I know that sounds bad, LOL! But I will get photos when we play. They get excited b/c they are allowed to throw a ball in the house (yikes!) but with adult supervision, of course. It's kinda like dodge ball but funner ;)


OH...and before I get started....check this out!!!!! Gel-a-Tins baby! :):):) Yeah for stamping!!! I cannot wait to get started. You may need to click here if you aren't friends with Renee on FB for the previous link {oooops}


So I got a bit scrappy this weekend! I didn't think I would but when I saw this fun Jenni Bowlin core Impression mini's on my desk, I knew I wanted to play with them. They are designed for Cardmakers but you layout gals can use them, too!

So was perfect timing for Zarah's challenges over at the Nook. This first layout is based on one of her sketches.



Here is a close up of the Jenni Bowlin Mini 4x6" Calendar Series in Black Magic.




this next layout is a fun one ;) I used this Jillibean Soup Corrugated alpha sheet as a mask for another layout awhile ago so I thought it would make a fun background. Kraft on Kraft {sigh} I accented my friend, stacy's, name in the patterned paper. The die cuts and buttons are from the new Blossom Soup Line. It is so Spring and fabulous!!! You know how I love my die cuts and journal sprouts :):):):)





AND I love how you can mix and match the Blossom Soup line with the older lines. just makes your stash go that much farther :)

Your link for the Gel-a-Tins announcement wasn't working here, but I just saw over at 2Peas that they had a dt announcement and Ellen was listed, so I assume that Ellen is YOU! Congrats!!!Very cool!

CONGRATS!!! They are so lucky to have you! Love how you used the Jillibean punched out background and the layering and sewing in the first is gorgeous!

Renee Lamb said...

First of all - super duper huge congrats on the Gel-a-tins DT gig! woot! And I LOVE the layouts. You rocked the JB one and I love how you used the leftover abc sheet as a background on the other one. I've been hoarding my empty one forever thinking I'd use it for something but finally got tired of seeing it so I JUST threw it away. Dang it. LOL
