Graphic 45

I picked up some of the newest Graphic 45 papers and I'm having a ball playing with them! They go perfectly with all the lace I've accumulated over the past year. Yes, I have a lace addiction. I've managed to amass quite a collection of vintage and newer lace -- most of it from estate sales, the local vintage flea market, and Craigslist. I figure that if I stretched out all the lace I have in one long line, it would probably reach across the state. I think I need to have another RAK giveaway soon.

Here's a layout I made with some of that lace and the lovely Graphic 45 papers (this is a picture of me when I was a little girl).

Oh, and one last tidbit for today. I'm going to be teaching a class at Millie Papercrafts in Los Angeles on March 22nd. It will be a vintage-looking layout using the new K&Co Cut 'n Paste line. I'll be posting more details and a sneak peak shortly!

Happy Valentine's Day!

In honor of Valentine's Day, I am dedicating today's blog post to my sweet husband. Muwwwwaahhhhhh! (That was a kiss). Our plan for Valentine's Day is to have a nice dinner at home with our girls. I think we're going to pick up some sushi from one of our favorite spots. When my husband and I were dating, we used to go out for sushi all the time -- at least once a week. These days . . . not so much. So sushi will be a big treat for us tonight.

Here's a little Valentine's card I made with an adorable vintage image from Fairy Davis Paper Goods for a challenge on A Million Memories (the challenge was sweet and simple: make a Valentine's card).

I think I posted this layout a few months ago, but since it's Valentine's Day I thought I'd post it again:

I hope you have a fantastic Valentine's Day!!!
