I am Loving the new kit club Swirlydoos!
I got my first
kit and have been playing around with all the scrumptious goodies {including the Flower Add On Pack- full of Prima yumminess!!}


Unfortunately, Whimsy is already sold out, so you need to sub right away so that you don't miss any of the future months kits!! Come join the message board and tell them Zoa sent ya!


here is my first fun project:

For once, I wanted to be the princess on the scrapbook page!! HAHA!! ;)
I used the plain cardboard for my background. I painted, inked, and sprayed with several different colors of glimmer mist. I totally grunged it up!! I used the embroidery floss and the template to sew the "leaf" flourishes on. I layered lots of differrent flowers from both the kit & the add on. I used a stamp for the "Z"

All the items are from the kit or add on except: lace, diecut title, grungeboard crown.






I can't wait to make some more!

xoxo :)

Scrapbook Sussies March Reveal

Scrapbook Sussies March Reveal!!
we have another awesome kit this month- take a peek!!

SS March kit

this kit features yummy pattern papers by:
Basic Grey {Urban Prarie} & American Crafts {everyday}

and.... it is only $29.95 while supplies last!!

Here are my samples:

Made with the cardboard from the priority shipping box!
I distressed, inked, painted and glimmer misted the cardboard.
All items are from the kit or add on except: blue label tape, orange bling, staples.



"Tree Hill"
The Sketch layout- I changed it up a bit from the actual sketch- but I took my inspiration from it! All items used are from the kit or add on, except the ric rac, staples and paint.



"Live Laugh Love"
Picture of me & Annie. Again I used paint, ink and glimmer mist to distress.
All the items are from the kit or kit add on except: gold lace, tiny black alpha stickers.





One of my favorite pictures of my husband holding Annie! I really wanted a romantic/ shabby chic look to this layout.
I added vintage lace, book page and Prima flowers to the gorgeous Basic Grey paper! The chipboard flourishes are from a previous sussies kit add on.




thanks so much for looking :)

Friday Favs

TGIF! Happy Friday everyone!
I am getting my wisdom teeth surgically removed first thing in the morning, so I am posting these early.

Here we go:

1. Christian Louboutin Shoes
I came across this STUNNING shoe, appropriately named the "Dream Shoe" and I fell... in love that is! I don't know if I could actually walk gracefully in these shoes... but I am definitely wearing them in my dreams. I LOVE LOVE LOVE these heels!


2. Farm Town
I am so obsessed with this Facebook App!! I have a farm and crops and animals... what more can I say? If you become my neighbor I will send you a tree or an animal ;)


3. EK Success Binding Edge Border Punch
Brand new and *hopefully* in a store near you- I LOVE this punch! It makes the paper look like it was just ripped out of a spiral notebook. AND- if you are lucky, you can get it on sale for about $10 this week @ Michael's!


4. Real Housewives of NYC
I love Reality TV!!! This show is on my "must see TV" list right now- these women are hilarious & ridiculous and I keep watching, because I am dying to see what happens next.
(airs on BRAVO)


5. Ben & Jerry's Chocolate Fudge Brownie Ice Cream
Super fattening, but delicious! I plan to eat a lot of this while I am recovering from my oral surgery ;)
