Blog reading can really really hurt your wallet. Yesterday Becky from Fourth House on the Right had an awesome card featured. (click HERE to see the awesome card) I loved the bingo card she made. I had used a bingo card on Monday's layout (click HERE) and I wanted to make some more. I hated to pay the high price of them at the scrap store and I liked the idea of making my own. Well Becky told me that it was a stamp from Paper Trey Ink. Well, if you have follwed my blog for very long you know that I love Paper Trey Ink. I try to stay away from them because they have so many fun stamps. Well I went on their website and boy oh boy did I shop. I am really in trouble--I totally went over my budget this month. BAD BECKY BAD BECKY for putting such a cute card on your blog. Becky, you deserve to get a free stamp or something from them for the the order I placed. hehehhehe--I will have to share pictures of my haul when it arrives. And as I am writing this I keep hitting myself because I wanted to much more--my list is always sooo long from them.
What is everyone doing this weekend? Any big plans? We are so jammed pack I hope I can take time to breathe. Tonight I am going to go for my crop. I know I am not going to stay till midnight tonight. I would like to be home early so that I can get some sleep. I do need to work though. I have not scrapped all week and I won't be able to all weekend. (Isn't it funny how this hobby is more of an obsession-hehehehehe) Saturday I have errands and then Jack has swimming lessons, a dentist apt., my mother in law is coming for lunch and then she is going to watch michael while hubby, Jack and I go down to Cincinnati for a birthday party( jack is invited). Then on Sunday my mom is coming over. The weather is supposed to by warm (60-70) but a chance of rain, but if I can get a walk in both days I will be in heaven.
I had some great news this week. I had another layout picked up by Scrap Street EMagazine. I was so excited. So my layout that was scheduled for today has been removed till June.
Also my Bee Happy card was featured on the Practical Scrappers blog. Wow I am so honored! Thanks so much!
I had some other fun news this month- at my local scrap store, Simply Scrapbooks, I am going to be teaching a sketch class. In the class we will be making 2-2page layouts and 1-1 page layout for $20 dollars. The students will get the sketches, cardstock, paper, alphabet stickers and embellishments, and I will show them how to put it all together. I am really excited about the class. We are hoping to make it a monthly class. The class date is April 17th from 1:30 - 3:30. Here is a look at one of the layouts that we will make in class.
This months kit used the Chloe by 3 Bugs in a Rug. Can I tell you how excited I am to scrap some girl layouts. I am going to put a picture of my god daughter in the place.
Well I hope everyone has a fantastic day and weekend. I will be back on Monday with a new layout. See ya then and thanks for stopping by!
