Good Friday

My first day off and I've been busy.

Let's see first thing this morning I went for my monthly massage. I usually have to get up extra early and get it done before going to work, but today I got to sleep in a bit...then went and got a wonderful massage. Back at home I puttered around a bit while the kids were begging to dye eggs. When I finally relented I discovered I had no vinegar! So since I needed groceries anyway, it was off to do a little shopping at the grocery store. We finally got around to dying eggs after lunch, this has become a tradition of ours. (Dying eggs on Good Friday)

So after cleaning up our eggs I decided to head up to the Scrapbook Cafe to pick up my next project and see what has come in. Well I thought the acrylic album was a challenge...this one tops it. Some St. Patty's Day papers from Reminisce. I am not a "themey" scrapper. I took 2 pieces of pattern "un-themey" as possible and a package of stickers. I'll be thinkin about this one for a while I'm sure. (Right now I'm kinda leaning toward a "spring theme")

Anywho...ran into Susan she was dropping off a LO she did with some Reminisce papers(great LO it looked much better IRL than on her to see the Stickles and other accents much better) Picked up some more Stickles speaking of them, a new Hambly transparency, and some papers by Webster's Pages.

Well I think you've all been waiting for this...a little sneak peek of the "My Fair Lady" kit from Coordinates Collections.

So here it is...what do you think?!

Yes, that is corrugated cardboard that has been distressed. I've seen it used so much and have always wanted to give it a try and was kind of forced into it on this LO. You see as I was mentally creating this LO I immediately had reached for my "staple"...kraft cardstock. To my shock and horror...I was out!!!!! The next day at work I was unpacking some mailers and carrying cardboard out to the recycling stack and had a "light-bulb moment". Why not give some cardboard a whirl?

I did and it worked...atleast I think so. lol On April 1st you can see the big reveal at Coordinates Collections and judge for yourself.

Are you up for the Saturday Night Challenge this weekend?Pat has been dropping hints over on her blog. Go check it out and play never you know you may be a WINNER.
