Treat Yourself....Pretty Please!!


Well, happy Thursday stampers!!! What's so happy about it?? Well, I hear it's going to be another warm and sunny one here in Ontario! Yaaay! I think I'm going to wear capri pants to work today....good thing I shaved my legs!! haha!!

Today's card features some deeeeelicious new paper that I scooped up at Scrappin' Great Deals last weekend! It's a new paper pack by My Mind's Eye called Pretty Please! And boy is it ever PRETTY!!! I think Sheila might be sold out of it at the moment but I'm sure she'll get more in soon!

I decided to pull out one of my older Magnolia stamps to play with. I love Tilda with her rolling pin and her apron. I paired her up with the Magnolia muffin stamp and the sentiment is by CCDesigns.

The lovely layout is this week's sketch over at the Just Magnolia blog. I used Bazzill Sparkle cardstock along with Apricot Appeal and Regal Rose. I used my Nesties on the focal layer and cut out Tilda and mounted her beside the muffin. I added some yummy Prima Hydrangeas, attached them with rhinestone brads and added some Stardust Stickles to the flowers, the hearts on the muffin and of course, Tilda's wings. The finishing touch really was the pleated ribbon at the bottom. I saw the tutorial on how to do this technique over on Splitcoast by the totally talented, Amy Sheffer.




So who saw the finales for Dancing with the Stars and American Idol??? I was shocked by both winners! I was thrilled that Shawn won...even though my pick was Melissa. And I was over the moon and Emileigh and I actually screamed out loud when Kris won on AI!!! I mean, Adam is totally a talented singer, but he's just not my style. He's too....theatrical for me. I will totally buy an album by Kris. And was he ever shocked when he won!!!

Well, I'm off to work today....lots to do. But tonight Emileigh and I will be cuddling up on the couch to watch the premiere of So You Think You Can Dance!!! We're excited to see what this season has in store for us!! We looooooove dancin'!!!

Happy stampin'!!

This is GORGEOUS, Kim....those papers are just beautiful, I LOVE the colors! And that ribbon looks really great. Well, I was sad when Danny was booted....so I didn't really care who won, but you're right about Adam....a bit too campy for my taste!
