mid-week fun.

Ok, so I totally got a SURPRISE when this box showed up:


I know. It’s all the Fiskars CHA releases for next week. I’m shocked, excited, and totally bowing to goddess, friend, and boss Steph. So yesterday I was busy fighting my printers. The one just won’t print… the other is taking photos and totally distorting how they look. Like majorly washed out and/or color crazy off. (insert me ripping hair out here)

ANYWAY. After a few hours I gave up and settled for this photo


turned black and white (and washed out) because I couldn’t wait any more to use the FABULOUS new Heidi Grace forever love line.


I’m telling myself the washed out photo can pass as ‘arty’ and I’ll pretend it’s on purpose.


SOOO PRETTY AND FUN! I love that stamp I used (Kimberly Poloson ‘nature’s flora- tapestry) and I’ll be working up lots more fun. Oh- and yep. That’s the upper crest border punch in action. (swoon) Everyone needs that punch.

I’ve got a  new border punch to give away… soon… (wink)

  1. Wonderful layout! Washed out photo or not she has such a sweet smile on her face. I can’t believe the box of goodies you got. If I opened something like that I would think that I died & gone to heaven.

  2. yes, may, i would have to say artsy….looks like you created that picture perfectly for that layout which is just beautiful.

  3. What a generous box of goodies! CUTE lo, and yes, I need the “Upper Crest Border ” punch!
    Congrats on your win, Michelle!

  4. I think the washout look is great with the colors you chose. And yes that line is awesome, just about everything they have sneak peaked is drool worthy. Lucky you that box of goodies is to die for. I can’t wait to see the new lines in the stores. Hopefully they’ll carry a good selection. Can’t wait to see what you do with all your new goodies.

  10. Holy Moly….are you one lucky girl!!! Rebecca is such a cutie patootie, how could you have a bad picture of her. Absolutely fabulous layout too!!

  11. Absolutely beautiful – BOTH your daughter and the layout! I wish I had half your talent. My saving grace is that scraplifting isn’t a crime. What an awesome job and boss you have, to get goodies like that! I got a “green energy” windmill calendar from my boss. Yes, it’s the exciting world of electricity at its finest! Can’t complain though, it pays the bills and keeps me in scrapbook supplies!

  12. Wow awesome box of goodies May! You lucky girl. Personally I thought the picture was great either way! It sucks when the printer won’t do what you want it to! The layout is AWESOME!
