Lots of Fun

So, I've never been to CHA, but I get the next best thing. Many of you know I do in store design work for my local scrap store, A Walk Down Memory Lane. When Lisa, the owner of AWDML, gets back from CHA she gets together with me and a few other ladies, and we divvy up the loot. We take it home and paper craft furiously for about 2 weeks at which time AWDML hosts a CHA open house where or projects are on display along with all the new lines, tools, embellishments, and other goodies that Lisa ordered for the store at CHA. Needless to say, this is one of my favorite times of the year. I love it just a little bit less than Christmas, and a little more than my birthday...seriously, it's just so much fun.

This year, I managed to make 14 layouts, 2 mini albums, a home decor piece, and a handful of cards. When asked what was my favorite, I didn't even have to think about it. This layout, hands down wins:

First of all, Saturdays by Little Yellow Bicycle is one of my favorite releases from CHA. There’s just something about the mix of denim blues, soft reds, off whites, and the caramely browns that made us fall in love! I think it also helps that this line is so versatile. It’s good for young and old, girls and boys. I also am just really happy with how all the layers came together to create an interesting, clean layout. You see the photos first and the papers and embellishments second. The only down side: there are so many more papers in this line that I want to use. I just couldn't fit them all on one page, so you'll be seeing more of Saturdays here on my blog soon.

Thanks for stopping by today!
