Garage Sale Day!!

Well, I woke up this morning before 7am and got up, made myself a yummy cup of coffee and have been watching the sky getting darker and filling with more & more clouds! :( I'm really praying that we don't get wet out there today at Clipper Street. That would be quite miserable! I'm hoping that whomever I'm beside in the parking lot won't mind that I have a big tent to set up - at least they'll be a bit dry too! ;)

Canadian Scrapbooker Fall 2010 issue is out and it's awesome!!! I've got a few layouts in this issue and wanted to share one with you this morning.

We are always given a list of assignments to work for eash issue & one of the assignments for this issue was to create a layout using the color red. So, I used some amazing Core'dinations cardstock (Jenni Bowlin collection) cardstock that is brown but when you sand it a red color comes through. I added more red patterned paper to go along with the "red" color scheme.

Here's my layout: "I Love Your Smile"

Supplies used: Core'dinations cardstock, Jenni Bowlin patterned papers, Stampin'Up clip, Fancy Pants chipboard embellishments, Making Memories chipboard alphabet, Fiskars border punch.

Don't forget to check out the new Webisode #9 issue on the Canadian Scrapbooker site. It's about making mini albums!

Well, off to get ready for the big sale. Remember, if you live in the area you won't want to miss out on all the amazing deals - as I've heard that it's going to be a ton of fun!!!
