Happy Saturday Peeps!

I'm trying really hard to not hoard...to use what I have...sigh...this is my latest project:

Yup, I'm finally using my Printers Tray and want a gazillion more...LOL...I had soooo much fun putting this puppy together...it's some of my favorite things....Let's see, let's go top to bottom, left to right, shall we?

1. Starbucks...don't really need to type much about this one..LOL..I've been literally living off of Starbucks at work...my liquid lunch...venti...iced...soy...green tea latte...no syrup...extra scoop of matcha.....mmmmmmm.....

2. Butterfly...still lovin' this trend...

  17. Amy, I love this! I can see this hanging in my scrap room! the only thing I would have to change is the "a" for Amy to an "s" for Sherri-literally!!! (My hubby is Donny!) Everything else applies, right down to the cupcakes and owls. :) I clicked "fabulous" but it's so much more!
