Fun with Instagram and Heidi Swapp

Ok, so as my friend Doris pointed out, I was a total enabler last week when I posted an Instagram photo of all the fabulous Heidi Swapp goodies that Michaels is now carrying, and since i'm getting back into scrapping after a break, it's only fair that I treated myself to new stuff, right?  Because, you know how us scrappers are, I don't have a stockpile of supplies or anything... ;-)  The background paper is Prima, but everything else (except for the washi tape and letters) is HS.  I think those banners are one of my favorites of her new embellishments.
I was hoping to get some scrapping done while watching the Oscars, but I decided to kick my feet up with a drink while watching instead :-)

MME goodies

So, who doesn't love My Mind's Eye??  They are by far one of my favorite manufacturers, and I have a ton of their stuff - papers and embellishments galore!  So when I saw that they are having a Guest Designer contest, along with the very awesome kit club, Gossamer Blue , I couldn't pass up the opportunity to try.  The layout had to be created new, and since you all know I'm finally scrapping again, it was the perfect reason for me to pull out a bunch of my newer MME goodies.  Like most people, i'm in love with washi tapes these days, so I had fun using MME's tape to make my sun.  I cut out some of the design and then backed the paper with AC's glittered cardstock and added some stitching with MME's twine.  I had so much fun with this layout, and these pics are some of my favs of Lucas at the beach this summer... I just love that kid!

First things first....

Happy Super Bowl day, everyone!  And GO RAVENS!!  We will definitely be wearing our purple loud and proud today :-)
Wanted to share some photos I took last week of a Superhero exhibit we took the kids to.  They had clothes for them to dress up in, lots of things to look at, and a drawing station where you could make your own comic book.  Chloe spent most of her time there :-)
Someone was the cutest little Superman i've ever seen.  Superman's phone booth was there, and he had a blast "talking" to him.  Sadly, however, I don't think any of my children knew what a phone booth even was ;-)

Then of course there was MY batman...

And then the REAL batman showed up...
Now that i've bombarded you all with photos, i'll sign off with some scrappy goodness.  Have I mentioned how great it feels to be scrapping again (pretty sure i've said that once or twice ;-)  LOVE this Ampersand mask by Studio Calico, and I had fun working my design around it.  These are some of my fav pics from our trip to the beach this summer.
Hope you all are having a fantastic weekend and that you get to enjoy lots of wings, dips and beer later today (if that's your thing, of course... ;-)
