Circa 1934--Cosmo Cricket

This is one of my favorite lines of the last year. Very Vintage and very classy! The blacks and teal/reds along with the cream make for pretty stuff!

I made these layouts from a goodie pack I won on Wednesday Winner's/Scrapgrlz! Shell McKay is the owner of Scrapgrlz, and she hosts a weekly giveaway on her blog. She has a store packed with scrappy goodies and the site also lists scrap getaways for us when we need to get away. I was very excited to get this paper before I could find it in stores. Worth it to check it out. It is late in getting posted because I was slow in loading these. Thanks Shell for the goodies! I bring you Circa 1934 by Cosmo Cricket!



This layout makes my heart hurt just a little. This was a picture of the last crop at the Scrapbook Shop of St. Paul. This was my home LSS, my home away from home, a place where many of my friends congregated. I have not set foot in another store since it closed the end of October and it made me pretty jaded and depressed about scrapping and it took me time to get going on any crafts after this.


Nobody can really explain all the goodness that happened and was displayed in this store. It was the kind of LSS that when you walk in, you want to stay and absorb it all and then buy stuff and drive really fast home to take all the goodness in the store and turn it into craftiness. I miss it so much! Life is not the same without it! Rhonda, you are the best and I will not ever forget your beautiful creativeness and love that made this into a store of wonder and delight. Eventhough the store is gone, I am glad to keep your friendship! Love and HUGS! Lara
