I picked up some new things this weekend...
I am really loving all of the scalloped edge papers that are so popular right now and so while at Michaels I picked up this DCWV mini scalloped cardstock stack. It has some nice basic colors and it is textured with the white core. I used a sheet of it on a layout this weekend for the semi-secret project. I can tell now since it has been presented to the recipient. It was an album for the Western PA District Church of the Brethren's Associate Minister who is leaving her postition after fifteen years of dedicated service. I figured that I have logged over 5,000 bus miles on differerent youth trips with Linda and she is trully a wonderful lady and I wish her well on her new vocation. She is to be a Chaplain at the Hershey Medical Center and I know that they are going to be so blessed by her presence there. She is kind, compassionate and caring all the things you would want in a Chaplain.

Next new toy is really an old one, but for a new purpose... My corner rounder is on it's last leg, I have sharpened it, lubricated it and pretty much worn it out by punching through multiple layers of CS to the point that it is now crooked. Only I could do that I guess! I decided to get this one to replace it since I talked Chicksa into buying one at my last visit with her. It is an EK Success corner punch, but presto! take the little plastic foot off of it and you can make your own scalloped edges! It is super simple and I like the nice pretty scallop that it makes. Lining it up is a snap if you punch upside down. Punch is available at Wal-mart and is less than $5.


I must say that I am enjoying these rainy days, even though they have kept me from planting the two flats of flowers and 3 flats of veggies that we picked up on Friday. I am looking for some inspiration for a few little projects that are in the works. I need to make some graduation cards and I also am working on a shower gift of a baby book for Kenny's cousin. Wish me luck and have a great week!

I love that scalloped paper too. I have been debating ordering some scallop punches online. I have been a blog maniac lately. My arm is hurting from clicking on blog after blog....
I might be able to go Friday - Dave said he might stay home so he'd watch the girls. I will know for sure tomorrow. I hope so! Crop Shop is having their yard sale on Saturday.
