Petaloo flowers and more...

Super cute new flowers from Petaloo's new Cameozs Collection.  Just the perfect size for scrapbooking, cards and even for the super popular barrettes and clips.  They are so adorable, and they all look handmade without all the fuss!  Bonus!






More colors to come! They have been selling out as fast as they can make them.

In other news...the store is still for sale. The deal that was in the works fell through, thank goodness...you should always trust your gut feelings...plus I really want to leave it in capable, caring hands...and that was just not happening with the other deal...
My number one asset is you..
my customers are what make this business and you are so worth it!
Without you it can't be done!
So if you're interested stop by and talk to me...turn key business with so much potential with all that is happening downtown!

MME Challenge 23

By the skin of my teeth, I am getting MME's latest challenge done....tons of difficulty uploading photos.  I think all the rain has something to do with it!
Love the sketch!

 Here's my take.  Kind of a layout within a layout.  Doubled the elements to make it work for what I was thinking.
 Needed a bit of black, so I cut the acrylic top sheet from the stamp set of doilies and got these two fantastic embellishments.  Worked perfectly. 

Thanks for stopping by!

Jillibean Soup's Watermelon Gazpacho

Beautiful fun new papers from Jillibean Soup to brighten this rain filled day.  Can't wait to play and create with this new line...Watermelon Gazpacho.  So bright and soooo perfect for the nice weather with might get this year. 



 This striped one has little mini stars on the back...so cute.
 Love this one filled with flowers.
 Oh my...I adore this...so stinkin' cute!
Stop in and let the sunshine in, with a bowl full of Watermelon Gazpacho!
