***First! This is my 199th post, so tomorrow will be the big 200! I am going to have a giveaway celebrating it, so be sure to check back!!!***
I just finished an album that Teresa Collins had as a make and take at CHA featuring her new Posh line, which I must admit, is so much fun to play with. I love the hot pink in with the black, white, and grey. I am certain I am going to have to grab some 12x12 papers from this line to add to the stash. With all these little girls in my life, I have no doubt that these papers will be used again.
Speaking of little girls, I decided that is who I wanted to feature in this mini. It is only 4 pages long and I struggled with what topic I could focus on with only four pages and then it occurred to me that at this moment, there are four little girls in my world right now. I think I get to preoccupied with past events or future plans to just seize today. Right now, these four mini-females make my world a brighter place. I didn't want to forget that.
I will probably add a page for my soon to be born niece, Lily-bee. I used iPhoto to antique the photos, a feature I have wanted to use, but had yet to find the right format. Each page as a fold where I will write a bit about the girl and each page has their initial.
The initial is flocked white and black chipboard, (a part of the stash I am finally tapping into again!), and doesn't fully show up on this page. I will probably add hot pink to it to make it pop.
I also hit a huge score at the local thrift stores today, which hasn't happened in a while. It seemed meant to be as I used exactly the cash I had in my wallet for my purchases.
One of the best was I went to a store that I rarely EVER go to because the parking lot is a pain and I walked in to find the lamp with the bow on it! I had just left the G with the lampshade and they are perfect for each other. The lamp and the scissors were the scores of the day for me.
I have really been into the silver plated piece lately. I plan to put flowers in them throughout the house. I have seen this in Victoria and Romantic Homes magazines and am always drawn to them. Oh, and the Santa tee? Random, I know, BUT I have wanted that silly shirt for two Christmases and just wouldn't pony up the $10, (can you say cheapo?), but obviously my wait paid off cause I got that one for $2. Oh, and yes that is another copy of Eclipse. I had to have it because of the red pages.
Gotta share another pic of these uber-cool scissors. They are metal and at least a foot and a half long. I have hung them above my sewing machine.
I think I am going to repaint them to distinguish between the scissors and the thimble. Whatever I do with them, I just love them!
