Can you hear the Ooos and Ahhs?

It's that time of year. CHA Summer 2011 is only a week away. Most scrapbook manufacturers are in the process of unveiling their newest creations. Crate Paper is one of my favorites. Here are 2 of their 3 new lines.

I love it all and must make it MINE!

Glitz Designs has a new release a super hot color combo I first saw with My Mind's Eye's Stella and Rose release earlier this year. Vintage Blue is just awesome. You can see more of the products here.

I LOVE everything and anything Halloween. Jenni Bowlin typically isn't my style, but her latest vintage Halloween line is awesome.

Can't wait to get my hands on the accessory sheet.

I want to give a shout out to Studio Calico's Memoir collection, and I'm eagerly anticipating the embellishments from My Mind's Eye's Lost and Found 2 release.


This past weekend was my 15 year high school reunion. 15 years isn't much in a lifetime, but boy have I changed and so have my classmates. It was nice seeing everyone and I had the particular good fortune to reconnect with not one but two long lost friends. Hopefully we'll keep in better touch this time around.

I'm really enjoying the camera on my new phone. The feature I love the most is when I snap a pic it's automatically uploaded to my Photobucket album. So awesome! This photo was taken at the reunion picnic. Shane got along famously with the other alums' kids.

Traveling back to my hometown, Pittsburgh, PA, is a special treat. I try to visit with as many friends and family as possible. A sweet moment was taking Shane to visit his great-grandma. She's 92 years old.

I can't wait to scrap these pictures. Seeing them together brought tears to my eyes.

Cooling off with Snow Day

It's going to be 95 in Atlanta today. I'd like to pretend it's winter, so I'm looking back on some wintertime layouts. These were both made with Crate Paper Snow Day.

Enjoy and stay cool.
