Lucky

Hey friends,

Just popping in to share a post I had up on the Paper Issues Blog earlier this week.

This is the first time in a long time that I have mixed so many different manufactures on one layout. Everything went together so nicely, it was actually pretty easy.  A little American Crafts, some Pink Paislee, and of course Fancy Pants designs compliment each other well.

I count my blessings to have such great scrappy friends in my life.  I know that I am lucky to be able to share my love for this hobby with women who get the excitement of pretty paper, and fun new embellishments.
The feather cut file is from the Silhouette store.
Flo, Tara, and I have developed a habit of PL nights every few months.  One of us hosts, and provides supper, and we scrap well into the evening.  On this occasion the dogs also came along for a little one-on-one time.
I just love this Amy Tangerine embroidery stencil.  It is a fun and easy way o add visual interest to your page.
The "lucky" cut file was a freebie by Kerri Bradford.  
To create an ombre effect I used 2 colours of embroidery thread to complete my stitched chevron.  I've hidden the journal on a tag inside the envelope.  It reads "How lucky I am to have so many wonderful women in my life who enjoy scrapping the way I do.  Flo, Tara & I have had fun hosting PL night b/twn us.  Girls, dogs, food, and fun.  What could be better?
Have you been looking for these Studio Calico Veneer stars?  Cassie at Paper Issues was able to get her hands on more of these.  They are once again available in the store.  I have a feeling they won't be around for long so you won't want to wait.  Remember you can use my code SHERRI for 20% off your order anytime.  You can see the latest additions to the store right here.
Thanks for stopping by today friends!
