Well, this last weekend I went to a PJ Crop at Scrapfunattic and had an absolute blast. We scrapbooked from 5pm until 5am. I really can't believe that I made it all night. A lot of us that used to work together got together and had a great time. Sarah, Sam, Mary, and Kim, and Mary's friend Linda, and Kim's daughter Megan. I have not laughed like that in a really long time. Toni you were definitely missed. Scrapfunattic knows how to have a blast, they had movies set up, drawings, snacks, and just plain old fun. I have to say that I was lucky enough to have my name drawn and I got 3 bottles of glimmer mist. Believe it or not they were colors that I did not already own.
This top layout is from one of our Christmas trips to Prairie Pines Christmas Tree Farm. Up until this past year the tradition was to go to Prairie Pines and then spend the day putting up the trees at our house and my parents. This past year we went to Windy Knoll Christmas Tree Farm and took advantage of their tagging process. When you go out and tag a tree, you pay for it and you can choose when you come back to cut it down. I do believe that we have found a new place to cut down our tree. They really do have a great selection. The patterned paper is by Cosmo Cricket, Bazzil card stock, the word stickers are also from Cosmo Cricket, Heidi Swapp alphabet colored with glimmer mist, and making memories metal snowflakes.
These pages are from Grants Farm in St. Louis. Chad and I went there a couple of years ago when we were visiting my Grandfather, and seeing my dad. It really is a neat little place. Of course I have always been in love with the Budweiser Clydesdales. The paper is Basic Grey Granola and the tags and photo corners are chipboard shapes sprayed with glimmer mist. I found the chipboard shapes and photo corners at Hobby Lobby and I actually got them on one of their 50% of sales. Gotta love deals like that. Can you tell that I really like this product? I wrote on the tags with white pen. I know that Toni has already talked about the white pen that she loves and I will second that review. It is the best on the market.
Thank you for peeking in. I do hope that you are all having a great week and enjoying this lovely weather.

Here are a couple of layouts that I have done recently. On this page the patterned paper is by Around the Block, the letters are cork letters from Hobby Lobby and I sprayed them with Glimmer Mist. Boy do I really love to use Glimmer Mist. The buttons were from Michaels.
Here is a two page spread for a trip to the zoo. I can't remember which company the patterned paper is from, I found the ribbon at Scrapfunattic, the letters are flocked from Hobby Lobby and the items that look like brads are little stick on brad tops also from Hobby Lobby.
I am looking forward to next weekend and a chance to get a lot of scrapbooking done. I am going to Scrapfunattic for a PJ crop 12 hours of fun!
I hope that everyone has had a great Valentine's Day. Thanks for peeking in.

Well, I know that it has been a while. I hope that everyone is having a great week. Things have been crazy at work, but I am looking forward to the weekend. I want to share with all of you a great product that I have found. For those of you that use the ATG tape gun, it may be difficult to find the refills. I have found the Scotch ATG 908 refill for as low as $5.50 per roll that is including shipping and handling. This is the only refill that I could find that was listed as acid free. I have used the following website to order from and the more rolls you order the cheaper it is. I have ordered from Framing Supplies, http://www.framingsupplies.com/3M/InformationATG.htm, the wait is not bad at all. As far as the tape goes, this is the best that I have found. I have seen this same tape at other stores, but not as wide or as much for substantially more than what I can get from Framing Supplies. I hope that this product review is helpful to everyone.
