Scrappy Sunday

Sometimes I will spend all day on just one really gorgeous LO...I love little details (for those of you who know me...yes, sometimes I do scrap slowly...but not very often...LOL...for those of you who don't know me, let's just say that I have a reputation for being a very fast scrapper).

I used up lots of the vintage goodness I have been buying up on this one (plus a few scraps from the Anthologies Connection Tres Chic kit - can you spot them?).


OK, well I still had time to do this one, too:)

Alice Inspired

So, I love everything Alice in Wonderland - the original book, the Disney movie, Tim Burton's version, even the SyFy Channel movie (Did anybody see that? It was probably just me). Today I worked on a few LOs while channeling my Alice love.

The Luxury of Lace

I spent today at the flea market and found the best booth ever. This sweet old lady had bought the entire contents of a 1950s lingere factory and had rows and rows of FABULOUS lace, ribbon, and trim and was selling it all dirt cheap! I'm talking 10yds for $1 here people!!!!!!!!! And all in super yummy Spring colors like coral, aqua, lemon yellow, Kelly green...drool:)

Check out my new stash:

A few of my faves:

Now if I can only figure out how to store 200 yards of lace (preferably before the hubby sees it)!! Any suggestions?

Vintage Valentines are some of my favorite things to buy:

And I'm super excited about my new treasure toy trove:

You Crack Me Up - Candy Shoppe Designs Challenge

Lately I can't get enough of Candy Shoppe Designs, a challenge and kit club blog. Check out their amazing eye candy! Their current challenge is "U Crack Me Up" - scrap a funny or embarrassing photo that you might not scrap otherwise. The prize is this month's Scarlet Lime kit!

Here's my LO for the Challenge - Funny Face:

I think this is Skylar's way of telling me I've taken too many pictures and he is DONE!


I used the front of the box from the Candy Land game I used for my Candy Land Book (see Welcome to Candy Land post).
