Fun stuff!

I went scrapbooking with a friend last night. Got lots done and saw some of the wonderful new fall line from Flair Designs and finally saw the new LilyKate from Basic Grey. I used it for this layout with Chloe and loved it so much I didn't want to cover any of it up. So I just hand cut this cute little purple frame around her, outlined it with my white pen and called it done. Perfect!

The BIG news is....after I found out about this on Pam Garrison's blog today, I thought it looked fantastic and figured it would be in some far away land. Lo and behold it's here in the Midwest, in Omaha. That's only 6 or 7 hours from the twin cities, so I am so there!! Teresa, founder of FoofaLa and the genius of Papier Valise is putting on this amazing pre-holiday paper event! I can't wait. I'm taking workshops from Pam Garrison (she has some amazing teaser photos on her blog), Carolyn Peeler and Becky Novacek. Woohoo!! Only 2 months away:)

Oh you lucky girl!!! I just saw this on her blog today too. It sounds like so much fun! Are you still going to want to take Pam's class at Artfest or a different one? Let me know so I can change your form if you want. Love your kids pages, you have inspired me to do my kids baby "books" I spent all day yesterday making my daughters, have a couple pages to finish and then "fill in" I know I wrote down all her baby milestones, now if I can just find that peice of paper....... :>) Will put them on flickr when I get them done. Have a great weekend.

Love your choice of colours. The white pen details looks Fab.

Ooh, I'm so excited for you going to Silver Bella. It will be so inspiring.

Flair Designs really does have some great stuff...and LilyKate is GORGEOUS!
