so busy…

There’s been a lot going on at my end,  the store has been inundated  with boxes from CHA, so I have not had much time to create.  That part of my job really does suck, you know seeing all the cute, new stuff and not being able to play!!

My hubby and I did go away for Valentine’s Day, we spent 4 whole days in Angeles Crest and had SO much fun!!! Can’t wait to scrap these!

All of those layout were made using basic grey products, we received a retailer’s pack at CHA and used their layout ideas as inspiration and changed them up a bit. 

I made these layouts using Best Creations paper.  They are a local company, and they make the BEST glitter paper around!!  Any rhinestones are Zva Creative and flowers are Kaiser Craft.

Here’s a layout using Nikki Sivils products and my Imaginisce I-Top tool, now that I know how to use it….I frickin love it! And of course, any distressing done with my Tim Holtz distressing tool.

I had a great, long weekend at the store!  It can be hard work at times, but having amazing ladies that keep you laughing make it worth my while.  As much as I can complain, I do love my job. 


p.s. all of our engagement and wedding photos were taken by the fabulous Wentzu Chang and here’s her blog.  I can’t ever express how grateful I am for her taking the most amazing pictures of Arnie and I.  She read my thoughts completely and gave me pictures that I will always have and cherish.  I highly recommend you contact her if you are in need of a great photographer!
