party time!


Happy Monday!!!

I wanted to play over at Caardvarks...especially since the most magnificent Heidi Van Laar {a fellow Washingtonian!!} put together 3 fabbie sketches!

I picked sketch #2 to work with...fun, fun, fun....The text paper is Jenni Bowlin, the journaling card is Maya Road & the polka dot paper is Jillibean. I found some ZVA Crystals at Scrapgal {that's where I picked up the sweet Maya Road journaling cards too!}. I actually snipped a large flourish in order to fit in it on my card :)

Yahooooo for the spectacular Sherry {thanks again sista!!!} that came to my Pom Pom rescue...check it out...I'm back in business ladies. I've been hoarding them for a smidge but knew I wanted to use them on this particular card...

Do you remember this post about the Cuttlebug? Guess what??

A Ginormous woot woot!!!!

I think it was meant to be...do you know why? Paulina asked me to send her my snail mail....she replied and guess what? She lives in the very same {small} city that I do!!!!
♥♥
shut up♥♥

Such a small world....actually the fabbie Sparkle lives here too!

I know you all appreciate that story...my kids soooo didn't 'get it'...
