A Thursday Toot

Wow I have been a terrible blogger I've been busy but also in a kind of funk.
I'm working on a layout about it so maybe the creativity will be a therapy of sorts...

I was able to go up the LSS EMI Scrapbooking on Saturday before the baby shower. Traffic was horrible & it should have taken me 30 minutes & took double that. It's close to the lake but I really don't think that had anything to do with it... just one of those days. I got some of the new Cosmo Cricket Early Bird papers & can't wait to work with them. I love going up & seeing Susan & the customers. Michelle was up there making a cute photo puzzle on wooden blocks for her hubby's father's day present. Go to her blog to check it out here. It looked great in person.

How I would have loved to have been up there scrapping too but after staying only 45 minutes it was off to the baby shower of my hubby's boss' step daughter who is pregnant with her first child (it's a boy). She got a lot of great stuff. Here's the gift I took I little basket I made using a bin I got at Target $1 spot. I always like to use packaging that is usefull & not just another gift bag. I made a gift card holder card & couldn't resist buying a couple of outfits & some baby must haves like baby wash & diaper ointment. There were about 8 little babies/toddlers there all girls... I am longing for grandkids....


A TOOT for me.

I have 2 layouts in the upcoming Scrapbook News & Review July issue to toot about. It's always nice to be published. One of them is the page called "Lookin' Good" I did for my first design team work for Everything Scrapp'n a couple months ago using the Fancy Pants rainbow paper & a fun old childhood photo.

Well I hope to do a little Unity Blog Hopping in addition to cleaning my neglected house & working on some scrapbook layouts/cards. My Unity Kit of the Month that was lost in the mail finally arrived yesterday -- doing the happy dance & so wanting to ink it up.

Have a fantastic Thursday.
