Kendall had her class Halloween party this morning and she was absolutely beside herself excited! She almost couldn't sleep last night thinking about it! How wonderful to be a little kid! I was thinking in terms of the great photo op this morning...getting some shots of her in her witchie-poo costume before Halloween night when things are just crazy. She adores her costume this year and can't get enough of the kitty-cat on the little apron. I have a feeling we'll be wearing this for dress-up quite often after Halloween!

This weekend I got to work with Splendid Fiins' spectacular new Tween Add-On Kit! I cannot get enough of the great patterned papers and colors she used...to me, the kit has a great 70's vibe! My good friend, Kim, sent me some great pictures of her beautiful daughter, Whitney, and darling friend, Caity, which were just perfect for the page I was working on! Aren't the girls fabulous? Thanks, Kimmie!

Fab Halloween Mini-Album!

Every Friday at Jessica Sprague, they have a new Hybrid Project available for just $1! You really can't beat these darling projects! Check out today's sweet and spooky mini-album that Laurie put together...if I were really ambitious I would put it together this coming week so that all I have to do once Halloween is over is throw the pictures in! Maybe in my spare time...**wink**  Have a great weekend!

Just Another Day in Paradise!

I have been a big fan of Crystal Wilkerson's since I discovered the Jessica Sprague website earlier this year and am so thrilled that as a member of Jessica's CT I can work with any and all of her amazing goodies! This Quick Page was perfect for some of my recent vacay photos. I just love how the bright, fun colors in her papers convey the tropical island-y feel I was going for! To see more of Crystal's fabulous designs, click here.

New Jessica Sprague Classes!

Whew! I am back from vacation and ready to get to work! The trip was amazing...but I am always happy to be home in the end! We did lots of relaxing and laying around in the sun and I feel so rejuvenated!

Exciting news: there are two new classes being offered at Jessica Sprague's website as of today! They were designed specifically for Teens and Tweens and are just darling! They are an amazing intro to Photoshop and the other technologies involved in digital scrapbooking, like managing photos on a computer and telling her owns stories. A great self-esteem builder! When Kendall is a few years older you can bet I'll getting one of these classes going!

Hope your Monday was wonderful!

Can I get a WOOT WOOT?

I found out this week that I have been invited to join THE Jessica Sprague's Creative Team! One of the very first goals I set for myself in 2010 was to join a design or creative team.  Over the past few months I have really immersed myself in digital scrapping and hybrid projects...and it was the hybrid piece that I was selected for! I am just thrilled to be able to create projects using products designed by the amazing gals over at Jessica's site. Please check her out: http://www.jessicasprague.com/. She has the most amazing digi classes and recently introduced Cosmo Cricket and Echo Park's exclusive digital designs! In a word: FABULOUS!

Another HO3 Mini and a FABULOUS Scarf!

Yesterday I mentioned that I created two mini-albums for my girlfriend, Suzanne. Here's the other one made from House of 3's "Summer Junque" line for her little sweetpea, Lucy. She is so yummy--don't you just want to squeeze those little cheeks off?

My fabulous friend, Lisa, took me to an amazing birthday lunch yesterday (I just love those birthdays that last for weeks!!) and gave me an absolutely stunning scarf from Shop Beautiful! It is like buttah! Super soft velvet and silk taffeta with raw edges--it is seriously to die for! I ran straight home and took these pics...I am now officially ready for cooler weather so I can rock this little beauty! **wink** Thank you so very much, Lisa!!

House of 3 Fall Junque Album

Last week I had lunch with my sweet friend Suzanne, her daughter Lucy and her new sweet baby, Sam. He is such a doll and looks just like Lucy (who is lamost 3).  I gave her this mini-album I put together with my new fave House of 3 products: Fall Junque! I also made a little album for Lucy using some photos from her 6 mos photo shoot (yes, 2 years ago! I was a bit behind!)...I'll post those pics tomorrow.

Here are some pages from Sam's album:

Curious Sofa

I really can't believe I have lived here for 17 years and have never been to this amazing place! Curious Sofa is a little boutique-y shop in Prairie Village that has the most wonderful and eclectic mix of decor, furniture, jewelry, art, and paper! My Mom was in town this weekend and we decided to check it out after seeing a writeup in "Where Women Create" magazine...we are both officially obsessed! Mom loves to decorate for any and all holidays so I got her this brilliant "Day of the Dead" skeleton woman. She is truly specatcular and what a conversation piece! On Halloween weekend they flip the shop into Christmas mode. I can't wait!
