A Fun and Productive Sunday...

I got these out in the mail today...Baby shower invites...And while meeting up with friends at Archiver's, these papers managed to find their way home with me. Can you tell I'm ready for spring?
I can't get enough of these...and the vinyl in white and black are so beautiful...
Right before I got out of there without too much damage, Cathy and Laina did me in. Now, I know I'm a big girl and all, and I should have the willpower to just walk away, right? Oh no...not this time! I have been coveting the getty font since I saw it on the American Crafts release. And the fact that there are so many in the pack--well, I didn't think twice! Now, for those of you out there who think those rub ons are the same old same old, think again. A few of the fonts contain both black and white in the packages.

And do I need to tell you how fun the journaling spot rubons are?
Okay, and really, these babies deserve an entire blog post by themselves. I am so not kidding here. When I saw Laina's layouts in the store displays, I had to find out what she used. Now, I'm not really one to doodle a ton. I enjoy it--it is really fun when I do play--but Laina took it to a new level with these babies. Her layouts are bold and colorful, and her style is fierce. She's a favorite locally and over at SIS, so be sure to check her stuff out--
And so, of course I had to pass on all the enabling tips to my blogger friends, right?

And I also just want to publicly say thank you to my friends who met up with me yesterday at the store. Tina, Claire, Cathy, Janet, Angela, Pam, and Sandra--never enough time with you! I hope to see some of you at the crop this coming weekend, too!

Enjoy the rest of your evening!

Oh, I am dying to get some of those letter stickers...dying! Either they are out of stock everywhere online and/or they aren't over in Hawaii yet. UGH! I can not WAIT to see what you do with them, my dear!

Hey Trish, LOVE the new pic...(watch where you point that thing!) I just went to ARchivers today and picked up some of Rhonna Farrer's Phrase Rub Ons. They are SO gorgeous and in all the spring colors...I somehow managed to get out of there without having to mortgage my home! However did THAT happen? SPRING! ME TOO! Ice storms heading my way this evening tho...(chanting) think spring, think spring, think spring...

Oh yeah and I love those baby shower invites! I'm sure you were making those while preparing dinner, baking cookies and working on other crafts like you do every weekend! Because how else can you accomplish so much???

The invitations are gorgeous! They look so delicate and feminine.
I love Thickers too - they just finish off a project perfectly!

It makes my day when someone comes into the store that LOVES to try new things. So glad that I get to share my enthusiasm for this great hobby with you. I find YOUR blog to be a great inspiration for me!
