You...STAMPlorations Bi-Weekly Sketch Challenge #7

Happy Friday, all!

House is clean, laundry done, nearly packed...just waiting for my husband to get here and we are on the road! 

Since I have a bit of time, I'm posting my little entry to the STAMPlorations Bi-Weekly Sketch Challenge #7:

Fabulous sketch - one I'm keeping for down the road. Today's NBUS is MME "Charm" paper pad ...pretty colours and patterns. Navy woodgrain paper...yummy.  I haven't stamped a sentiment inside yet, but I'm thinking YOU on the front opens up possibilities for my sister-in-law (yep, still making cards for her...she's an awesome customer!) to decide.  Perhaps she'll give it to my brother...and I can certainly help her figure out the second half of the sentiment *grin* Sibling love...too much fun!


The scrapbook outlet I discovered a couple visits ago is having a sale (I know..restraint is OUT the window) - 50% off MME products (seriously....50%!!), and tomorrow, 50% off anything in the store that's green.  They showed a photo of their 'green' items...who knew!!  I am soooo going to shop look!

Actually, my shopping agenda has two priorities: gifts for the kiddos. Thanks to a 'hint' from my brother, a backpack is on the list for my nephew (Disney Store...West Edmonton Mall...yuck to the mall, but anything for Mr. Cutie-Pie...), and my niece, well....still not sure.  Perhaps she and Aunty C should go on a shopping trip together...

Thanks so much for dropping by; your visit and comments make my day!

  1. Awesome colors Carol! The ric-rac cut at the bottom is perfect with the chevron paper! Love the polaroid die...awesome way to showcase the butterfly and "you". We just got our new computer all rigged up (with considerable help from our son)...but this new keyboard is driving me nuts! Apologies is my fingers accidentally type bad words!!!

  4. Love the chevron paper in the BG and way to rock the dies. Had to giggle at you going to West Ed Mall. We have been there twice, but only to the wave pool/slide portion and nothing else LOL! GREAT place to hang out and get some good exercise. Must take your niece and nephew there when they are older - it's a BLAST! My kids LOVE it there and so do I (I'm a big kid LOL!). As for the MME sale - MEEP!!!! Oh how I wish I could go. LOVE their papers! I think you need to "pre-buy" your Birthday and Christmas pressies from hubby there this w/e wink, wink :)

  5. Ooooh love those border edges!! The subtle colours of the background paper (which, btw, I LOVE) is spot on and plays with the elements you used so well! The bling jazzes it up just perfectly! You should definitely help your SIL "fill in the blank" on the inside if she's giving it to your brother ;) !! he he he!! Have a fabulous weekend and shop til you drop!! Can't beat 50% off!!!!!!!!

  10. Glad I have a laptop--bought it to take camping but now it's great in the living room while puppy is napping--just did his first laying on his back asleep--so cute! I love that sketch & how you've used it, Carol! The butterfly & die cut word are perfect! Wish we could shop that 50% off sale together--but then, that could be disaster for both budgets--LOL!
