Ode to spring

I just completed another DT layout for CMK using more Paper Trunk goodies. This time I used the Jellybean line, and let me tell you, these papers are SO much fun!! I also had fun with their border stamps - I used the scallop stamp on the edge of my cardboard, and I used the stitching stamp on my photo mat. Journaling (on label) says: I love this photo of you at the airplane park (taken May 2008).

Patterned paper and stamps: Paper Trunk, Chip letters are MM, letter stickers and glitter die-cuts are K&Co, and label is Jenni Bowlin.

So, today is Friday which means that tomorrow I am going to a 12 hour crop (starting at 10a.m.)through Kreative Junkets, run by my friends, and former Recollections employees, Kim and Jo. Whoo, I can't wait!! I can only stay for about 7 hours or so, though, as I only have babysitter coverage (thank you mom, I appreciate it!!) until about 6 at the latest. I never seem to get much done at crops, but I have a couple more Paper Trunk projects plus my Sept. kit goodies to work with, so hopefully I can be somewhat productive tomorrow!

Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend! And those of you who make the trifle... let me know what you think! :-)

Wonderful ideas going on here , Staci ! Love the cardboard background ! We don't see much of Paper Trunk over here but that Jelly Bean line is definitely appealing ! I must say !


My Daisy D box from CMK finally arrived ! oh my the longest 12 day wait ! lol - I had ordered the new Pink Paislees & was so sure it would have been faster getting it frm the US than frm here ! I was partially rite ! anyways I did get a duplicate qty of PP papers here this week ! grrr ! from our LSS ! since this is the only must have CHA Summer 08 line for me ! lol BTW the Glitz box still hasnt been shipped to me yet ! if I'm lucky i will get it in the next 12 days now . We will get there ! lol

ooo just as I suspected, Staci - that you do take your time with your layouts ! lol I love instant gratification so even with detailed layouts - it takes me not more than 3-4 hrs ! lol but usually much less ! I think I will try sitting on layouts for a couple of days - everyday adding something on ! lol !
