Wow Sassafras!

CHA Summer has just wrapped. There were some pretty incredible products from what I could see in my browse pics of Scrapbook Update and Flickr. I think I am most excited for these awesome new embellishments from Sassafras.

What a sight! For details check out their blog.

Donna Downey at EMI

Donna Downey spent this past Saturday teaching classes at EMI. It was a great experience. I participated in the Elegant Garden canvas layout class. Sorry no pic at the moment. Shane was with me in the morning and wanted to get in on the creative action.

The evening before I was at Archiver's with my good friend Kathy, her sister Rose, and my new friend Anne. I made my first read card.

It's part of my submission for the Bo Bunny design team call. More projects later this week. Thanks for reading.

Catching Up

It's been a busy 2 weeks since we returned from vacation. I've applied to be a Bella Blvd Artista (Guest Designer) and I'm considering the Bo Bunny Design Team call. It would be a huge honor to be invited to one or both of those groups. There has been some real scrapbooking too! The blogs for Your Scrapbook Stash and My Mind's Eye have sketch challenges going on right now. Here's a sneak of my MME entry:

I'm using papers from So Sophie and Meadowlark journaling cards.

Last week Scrapbook Expo stopped in Atlanta. While the vendor fair was smaller than last year, I still enjoyed shopping and picked up some unique embellishments.

I also purchased papers from Bo Bunny Paradise and Sunkissed, October Afternoon Thirft Shop, Basic Grey Capella, My Mind's Eye So Sophie, and Bella Blvd All Inclusive. The most unique item I got was this.

While at the show, I got to chat with Atlanta Scrapbook Examiner. It's a great resource for Atlantans. Last but not least, EMI will be hosting workshops with Donna Downey this weekend. There are still spaces available. Go here for more info.

Thanks for reading.


Lucky boy, lucky hat, lucky mommy!
