Eiffel Tower Video!

Hi Folks,
I don't have any scrappy stuff to share tonight, so I thought I'd share my first of many (hopefully) videos! Since Dave wasn't able to join me, I decided to take a few videos for him :)

My Mind's Eye

Here are a couple of layouts I created among the chaos of my scrap space is really the only part of the house that isn't pulled apart and unorganized (yet! I plan to paint the basement later this week....yikes!) Its all worth it though...I left Halifax after supper yesterday and I already miss Dave like crazy....I'm really looking forward to seeing him everyday!

I used My Mind's Eye papers...they are so thick and full of fun distressing them as I did with Evan's layout here. These are from an older line, but love them just the same! I visited the LSS on Saturday with my cousin and I picked up a couple of sheets of their new stuff....too cute! I can't wait to use the dino with a layout of Rohan :)
I also picked up my bag of goodies from LCOM tonight and I can't wait to make my Christmas cards this year with the Basic Grey Eskimo Kisses papers, they are just adorable :)
Off to package a few more button orders for tomorrow morning's mailing!
Thanks for stopping by

Rose Moka and an Autumn Layout

The painters arrived at the house on Wednesday...and most of my house is now boring beige. *sigh* Since everything is absolute chaos upstairs (they will be finished tomorrow), I retreated to my purple scrappy space and pulled my beloved Rose Moka papers in remembrance of my lime green and hot pink rooms LOL

Here are the Whimsy buttons I added to the layout...close ups to you can all see the new "thin" buttons, much more scrappy friendly than the older styles!

Here is another layout I completed last week in Halifax...Love this photo of my mom and me, circa 1978-79 I'm not sure if I was 2 or 3 years old here :) I it phenomenal that my Dad was such an avid photographer growing up, we have so many fun family photos!

A close up of the Whimsy Pins I used on the layout....a few different sized leaves

This weekend is another "on the road again" for to Cap-Pelé to visit my family down from the UK Friday night, then off to Halifax at the crack of dawn on Saturday to help Dave pull up carpet in preparation of the flooring people arriving Monday morning! Pheww...I tired just thinking about it! tee hee
ta ta for now!

Halifax Mojo!

I spent last weekend with Dave and the boys in Halifax...and as some of you know, I love scrapping among the chaos! tee hee I'm not sure if its the limited supplied, scrapping at the kitchen table and socializing or the fact that there are no "house chores" to distract me at Dave's...but I always seem to get a few layouts done in just one day!

I still haven't finished the "glimmer Mist" accident LO from last week...Hoping to work on it tonight :)

Some of you wanted to see photos from our trips to London/Paris and New York...I'll see if I can get some posted in the next few days...I haven't even printed our NY photos for scrapping yet! With my move to Halifax in less than 2 months, work and the Whimsy shop being busier than ever, I just seem to run out of day all week long LOL

Thanks for stopping by :)

Sassafras Surprise!

A few weeks ago, my fav scrappy paper company was having a warehouse sale...and normally, I don't even give these a second thought because shipping is usually sooooo expensive to Canada...but c'mon! It was Sassafras! I HAD to order the large box of goodies.....tee hee

It was perfect...considering the amount of stash I already have, there were few duplicates! Especially the acrylic stamps, they sent me all of the ones I don't already have! Yay!

Forgive me for the terrible photo....I didn't have time to take these outside to photograph and there was too much stuff to fit into my light box!

No scrappy layouts to show today...working on one, but I had a Glimmer Mist "mishap" yesterday... and I have to change a few things on the layout now. LOL I'm determined to get the hang of that stuff....I think its such a fun product and it adds so much sparkle to a layout! I just seem to be heavy handed with it...if any of you have suggestions, recommendations etc. please post below!

I'm off to Halifax to visit Dave and the boys tomorrow morning...I hope you all have a wonderful long weekend!
