Lots of Fun on Friday!!

Hi Everyone! It's Friday!!! We've had a long week. My daughter had surgery on Wednesday and that was stressful. She is doing very well today, but I have been home with her and dealing with the good and bad and everything inbetween. We plan on chilling out this weekend with family and friends and I am dying to get to my scrap table. I want to scrap!!!

So...some fun news for Friday. I am now on the Crop Suey Design Team!!!


Crop Suey is a challenge site that is going to be rockin' in the next couple of months. Challenges, tutorials, recipes...it's going to have it all. Go check out who else is on the design team, this is going be fun fun fun!

And some layouts I did recently using the 365 Degrees collection by Pink Paislee. This was one of their previous releases, I love all the matching embellies. Cork buttons, pleated ribbon, decorative tape, journaling spots... and it's all available at Croppin' Paradise!!!


I just love the pleated ribbon, so awesome I don't have to pleat and stitch it! Ha ha!


And one more...I love this collection. I also have one of those cute 6x6 paper pads and want to sit down and dive into some card making with it.


Yes, the banner addiction is still going strong!


I hope you all have a great holiday weekend. Any big plans? Are you traveling or just staying put and enjoying the weekend? Whatever you do...hope it's awesome. Thanks for stopping by!
