I am in love with this paper

As a scrapbooking prize, I got the My Minds Eye Oh La La paper line and I am having lots of fun.  Usually when I do a layout, I try to think of some way to use it in a blog or a challenge.  This could be "use your oldest embellishment challenge"  I used doodlebug letters, a labelz and some ancient letters I got that are acrylic and had this cool pattern that I thought looked like water and would be perfect. When I say old, I mean, these are old!

Here is a close up of the letters

Kitchen remodel...

Oh boy- are we having fun or what?? I am in the middle of a kitchen remodel and my hubby is away on business. Yuck. So here are some pictures. OK- with this kitchen wouldn't you remodel? This vintage 70's kitchen looks horrible. It was so bad, I never even bothered to paint. It wouldn't help!!

Intro into the digital world of scrapbooking....almost!

OK, I am not a digital scrapper.  I was asked to be on Kiki Halbert's blog team, which I am so thrilled about,  so I am going to learn.    I should have done this a long time ago, because learning doesn't come easy at my age LOL.  I am having a tough time, so I decided to start easy-print  and put it on my traditional page and do some hybrid scrapbooking. Kiki just introduced her new digital kit "Burst into Spring" which is a new collab from Kiki and siamese studios.  You can get it here.  It is so cute!!!!

Here is a butterfly that I printed and cut.  I love how real her designs are.  It just pops off the page.  I added some stickles- I had to!!

This flower combines both elements again.  I used a Martha Stewart punch- a border punch and printed some of the papers from the kit, which are yummy!!

Here is my layout.

I have another tip in store, so stay tuned.  I photographed a page and added digital elements.  It is really cool.
