Pigs Must Be Flyin’

… because I actually SCRAPPED!  Wohoo!!!!  I don’t find much time to scrap anymore since most of my time on the computer is spent "designing" and checking customer service emails, but at some point of the morning today, I had an idea for an element that could be used for Easter layouts, namely Easter Egg HUNTING layouts.  So I grabbed my camera and shot a few pics of my backyard so I could extract the grass.  I put it on a 12×12 just to see how it would look and ended up with a whole layout:)  AND the best part is I got to finally use Nancy’s Clutter Frames AND I ADORE them, actually makes me wanna scrap again with em’!!!!  Here is the layout:



I thought that people could "hide" their eggs in the grass?  Sometimes when I come up with ideas I think I’m high on something…. but that unfortunately ain’t the case!!! Anyways, I like the way the layout came out, so I guess the time I spent on it was worth it regardless right?

On another note… anyone in need of a camera bag?  Word on the street is that the awesome Jessica Claire is launching her OWN line of em’!!!  You can get more info on her bloggy:

Jessica’s Blog

Make sure you sign up to be one of the first to see em’…. just scroll down to her March 9th post for details.  She told me yesterday that she has a pink one…. you know how much every gal loves pink!!!  I can’t wait to see them!  I swear everytime I visit that woman’s blog, I get ants in my pants just thinking about my pictures:)  She will get sick of me telling her how fabulous she is lol!!!

Stay tuned next Monday for a whole BUNCH of new products!  I had so much to put up that I had to split into 3 weeks!!!!
