Just a quick post . . .

Just a quick post to share one of the layouts that I created with the new Prima products that will be showcased at CHA in a few days.  Prima has done it again . . . so many fabulous new goodies!!  This was made with the new Printery line:

I printed the journaling on Prima's new Writer's Tape:
Gotta run . . . I have a sick kitty who needs my attention.

Funny Girl

For those of you who celebrate the 4th of July, I hope you had a great one!!  While I'm busy working on CHA products, I thought I'd share a layout I made for the last CHA (I never got around to posting it here).   My little Danielle is a total comedienne and she makes us laugh every single day.  Funny girl . . .

I'm so grateful for the all the laughter and joy she brings into our lives.

On another note, The CRAFT Beach Retreat event is almost sold out.  So if you want a spot, you better  hurry scurry over there and register!  This amazing scrapbooking retreat will happen here in Los Angeles (Santa Monica, to be specific) from November 11-13th. Check out the site for all the details.
