Celebrate....

Hello everyone and Happy Thursday. The week is going pretty steady....and if you have noticed I had the week free so I have been entering all my favorite challenges. Today I am entering the Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge.  I am going with the Chevrons.  I had this amazing paper from American Crafts designed by Amy Tangerine...Sketchbook. I actually just bought another paper pad for a backup. I just love all the patterns and amazing color combos. 

Recipe:  Paper Smooches Zoo Crew, American Crafts Amy Tangerine Sketchbook, Paper Trey Ink Fillable Frames #5 Stamp Set, Little Yellow Bicycle Jewel Stickers, Neenah white card-stock, Scotch advanced tape glider and foam adhesives.  
Yesterday I got my order from Ribbon Carousel. They had 40% off your total purchase and I got like 4 paper pads. Super cool new paper... Can't wait to play with it.  Don't you just love getting packages in the mail. It is like getting a gift. I order like 80% of my stuff online. Too many good deals online. We do have a local scrapbook store that I also visit often and usually always buy a little something.  So remember when I said that I was not going to buy anything this month...well I have already failed. shhhhh don't tell anyone..hehehe... 

Well thanks for stopping by.
I wish you a wonderful Thursday and a crafty day.

  10. Oh,your card is adorable! I also love that paper pad and will have to look for it. Printed paper that is colorful and lively but not overwhelming is important for backgrounds. I appreciate everything that I learn from your blog. Thank You!

    And yep, I'm about to have a shopping fail like that. Ahem. Probably 90% of my stuff is from online, since there isn't anything close. I don't know if that means I spend more or less money?
