heel-toe-heel-toe and CHA CHA CHA!!!!!!

JUST A PICTURE OF "ME LIKEY"---because, well, ME Likey! LOL

Ok, so it is a corny title...but I wanted to put the CHA CHA CHA in there...OMGoodness, have you seen what is coming out for this summer's CHA?! WOWSER, there is a list that is getting longer by the minute for pocketbook is already saying {OUCH}. I would like to mention my picks for what I really like from this season:

There is Sassafras with the NEW felties, the pretty fun paper lines, and OMGoodness...chipboard to match...I am in heaven--maybe even Hog's Heaven (you see I might just go home and get in the Sassafras spirit by playing with a little Hog Heaven--of which I only have a little left, and may be able to Squeak out a layout and a card).

Next on my list: Basic Grey. Well I have NEVER met a BG line that I did not like and this season is no exception...loving that Eskimo Christmas/winter line, and Indian Summer, and gosh, they are even putting out a Halloween line this year...WOW, cannot wait to touch and see the patterns in person!

Ok, So lately, Cosmo Cricket
is my number one go to products...I am not sure what the look is that I like so much but I know that it is a cross between the color combos and the kind of almost 70's/old kitschy look that I like the most. I love the new lines coming out and have already set aside some cha-ching for those lines--Earth Love and hte Boyfriend for sure!

To continue with my list: Lilybee Designs
has 2 new lines, Audrey and Vintage Poppy and I am loving the color combos so I just, well, just want them because of the colors! I will find them somewhere and get them for sure!

Last for today's list: Pink Paislee.I really like the stuff that PP has put out this season and I cannotw ait to see it in person. I think that these lines are very vintage-y and that is what is drawing my attention! I have been just drooling over some of the projects I have seen on line!

that is NOT all on my list, but after awhile, I think if you click on too many links, you get overkill and glazed over. I might some more goodies for my wishlist/must haves later in the week.

For all that have worked with me at SAS, today was my official last day as a DT member. It has been a good run and I really enjoyed the creativity of being on the team and being an unoffical leader for the website. I want to wish luck to the oncoming DT, from the changes that are happening with the website and the reorganization and additions in the creative challenges, it promises to be an exciting time at Scrap Attack!

Got to get to work so that I can get home and be SCRAPPY!!!!!!!!!!!Love and Hugs, Lara

Crazy for Sassafras!

I am just loading up on Sassafras lately. I cannot get enough of this in my stash. I used to not like it as much...seemed too kid like...but it is so playful and bright and VERY versatile. I just wanted to share a little goody that I adore...and it is my DD on her birthday and she was hugging me so tight, as you can see...what more can a mother ask for, right?! Just sharing my little bits and pieces of goodness in my life and she is one of them. How blessed can a girl be?! TFL. Love and hugs. Lara

Bo Bunny "Calypso"--Be still my heart

Be Still My Heart...Yes, that is true. For July, and my final month as a SAS DT member, Some little goodies from Bo Bunny graced my doorstep. The colors of the CALYPSO line are amazing and super fun, especially for summer fun photos. I also really liked the Double Dot Cardstock from Bo Bunny that comes in all sorts of colors...the ones that worked so well for this line were the Brilliant Blue, Wasabi, and the Wild Berry Red, but they come in all sorts of colors. The cardstock is of thicker weight, and even though it is slightly textured, it has dots on it, making it look very textured on one side and on the other, it looks stone-washed. Let me tell you, the colors of this make my heart happy. I had so much fun with this paper line and I would like to think I wrapped up my final assignments using what I do best, color and texture! Be sure to check this line out and all the other little goodies that are in the Scrap Attack Scrapbooking online store. CHA is coming so it is promising that there will be lots of goodies and treasures showing up in the store!

So here are my little layouts.

I think that the colors reflect my happiness in my first design team gig and my love of color and I will always enjoy having the experience. TFL. Love and Hugs, Lara

Happy July

Well, the 4th of July is over. Hope everyone had a safe and happy weekend. I always look forward to the 4th. It is our Independence Day and a day to recognize how lucky we are that we have freedom and prosperity. I know our economy is not so good right now, but for the most part, we should be thankful that it is not worse than it is. I also want to say thank you to all of our service men and women who have and are fighting for our freedom! Without your sacrifice, we would not know the freedoms that we enjoy every day!

NOt sure how to switch gears from that. I spent the weekend enjoying a little crafty freedom. I was very productive. I was able to make some layouts for my last month at SAS and also just some crafty little treats just for me. I am going to tease you a bit about the DT layouts and make you wait, as I will need to finish up before I put the big reveal up. But here is a little taste of a few of the layouts that I did just for me with my own stash.

Just some goodness from Cosmo Cricket, Sassafras, Collage Press and some goodies from a SAS February kit. TFL. LOVE and Hugs! Lara
