Wednesday Potpourrie

There's a lot on the go around here, both in my scrappy life, and in my personal life.  I affectionately call this time of year "crazy land".  We are on the tail end of Dance season, school at this time of year picks up with fiend trips, and other small class activities where parental help is required, then there's track and field, and my dear hubby is traveling a little more.  It gets a little crazy.  Good, and fulfilling, but a little all over the place at times.

Let's Capture Our Memories is hopping these days.  They are celebrating 3 years this week.  There are games and challenges, and lots of chit chat going on, on the Facebook Page.  Even the store is celebrating with on going sales, the first of which is a 40% discount off LilyBee product.  Have you seen the new collections, they are so beautiful.  I've been working with them this month, and just love the colours.  I have a new layout coming up next week with the Double Dutch Collection, it's one of my faves, I'll be sure to keep you posted.

Here are some scrappy shares for you.  The first is a layout I created with the new Cosmo Cricket papers.  It's a title-less layout.  I really couldn't come up with one, and there wasn't a lot of room left on the page in the design anyway.  I don't think it affects the overall design, and the story behind the layout is recorded on the tag.
The next project is one that I created on request. My sister-in-law asked me to create a card to give to a  young woman she knows who is graduating this year.  Can I just say this stressed me out a little.  Who knew?  I found it a big responsibility to be making something for someone else.  I was very concerned that she would not like it.  I started one, with an idea in mind, but ended up tossing it, because it just wasn't what I had envisioned.  I started over again, and created the entire design around the pearl flourish this time.  I was happy with the result, and thankfully so was she.
Using Echo Park Graceful collection
 I thought it would be fun to create a coordinating envelope

That's it for me today friends.  Thanks so much for popping by.  Hope you get a chance to pop by LCOM for the Birthday Bash.  You'll be sure to meet some of my scrappy new friends, and fun and welcoming bunch.

** If you're looking for the winner of my SEM Birthday Blog Hop, it will be posted soon, I promise.  We are just getting the final details all pulled together for the SEM blog.  There were a lot of prizes, and a lot of winners :)  Check back here soon to see if you are my winner**
