Well now, lookie here what I got today........

At my local scrapbook store Scrapbooks & Stuff got this delish paper. Oooooohhhhh, aaahhhh.If you are into vintage, this is soooo up your alley. Oh my goodness, I was in heaven. I want to work on these babies tomorrow. I can't wait to get my hands in the mix.

This line is from Graphic 45 and you can check out them out here. They are a fairly new company and I am thrilled that we can get their stuff at Scrapbooks & Stuff. Whooo HOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!

All these papers are double sided and the paper is really good quality. Good sturdy paper that you can distress to your hearts content.

This line is pretty big. I believe it carries 12 sheets for a total of 24 designs. I'm in looooooooooove!

While I was there, I met up with one of my favorite girls (Laverne). We were cracking up. We just don't have enough hours in the day to talk about everything!!!! She is going to be teaching some absolutely beautiful make sure you guys check out the upcoming classes at here. Lisa and Kobe have some amazing stuff in the store and great stuff coming in soon too. By the way, the most adorable brads were being unpacked as I was there, and girls, oh my, oh my, Ms. Lisa got a bit carried away and I think she purchased everything in sight....GOOD FOR US!!!! Go grab those goodies, and and by the way, the flowers...ohhhh, they were so delish! Lots of yummy goodness over there. Make sure you visit them and grab some scrappy goodness.

Wishing you all a fantastic creative weekend.

American Crafts Modern Albums are so much fun...

I have been on a roll with these albums in the last two days. I will post the other 2 later on, but I put this one together for someone special this past Saturday and did two more since then. Super fun and I love the way we are able to personalize the front cover of these albums. I did another 12x12, an 8x8 and a 6x6. Will try to post pics of all the goodies I have been working on since Sunday.

Calendar has begun to go out and should be in every one's hands by this Friday. There is a lot of you so I have to send it out in chunks.

Have a great day, and big hugs!
