Paper Issues and Elle's Studio

(I feel I need to post this at the top.  The "love these snapshots" pennant, Glitz washi tape, straw, twine, 'x' pattern paper are leftover from various kits, everything else is from various design teams I am on and from my own personal stash.  I have added a disclosure to the bottom of my blog.) 

Lots of fun things to be announced at Paper Issues.  First...I'm excited we are having some awesome ladies joining our team.  Second...It is also our very own, Cassie Box's birthday celebration for the rest of the month!  There will be prizes all week long.  Cassie runs the shop at Paper Issues...pretty much if we want it, she gets it for us (we pay for it, of course) and at an amazing discount.  She not only offers the team a discount but to anyone...all the time.  My code is PATRICIA to get 20% off.

In celebration of Cassie's birthday and my crazy obsession over scrapbooking supplies...I'm giving away a $20 gift certificate to the Paper Issues shop.  Just be a follower to my blog...and Cassie will pick a winner from the the Paper Issues Facebook page...so head there for more details to win, and while you're there, 'Like' Paper Issues.  

------------------------

So now onto the newest Paper Issues theme...ELLE'S STUDIO!!!  They are also sponsoring 5 chances to win their Serendipity line!  See details here!  And be sure to link up ANYTHING new or old you have created using Elle's Studio product.

I have a new layout using lots Elle's Studio, cards, tags, paper, and stamps.  Most of it is from their Valentine line...and then I came across this old photo of me and my husband...couldn't have been more perfect.
 Then I looked up the date the photo was taken, and realized how special it is to be scrapping this...Emma was just 14 days old at the time.
And, of course, I see I made I typo...I will fix that later ;)  And FYI, we were at McAlister's for lunch...we must have taken about a dozen photos to get just the right shot of us...yes, we are crazy.
Okay...hope everyone has a good week...continuing praying and thinking about all those affected by last week.

Pin It!

  1. I sort of love that the 'y' isn't there. It mimics the message of this page...that the love was there, she was in the world too, but you hadn't come together just yet. The full details were still to be worked out. :) Such a great photo and another fantastic page. I would love the awesome discount you get, but then I would buy more stuff too! Next chance I get I think I have to try out for Paper Issues and Elle's Studio. I love them both! Oh...Noelle Mignon as well!!

  2. Fabulous page and photo!! :)
    I got a few of those straws in a kit and was at a loss how to use except pinwheels.
    But this is such a cute idea.
    Can I tell you how excited I am to be in the PI team with you :)

  9. Super cute!! I love the colors of pink and sparkly green and neutral. Very sweet story about how you didn't know a year later you would have a beautiful baby <3 It reminds me of how blessed we can be in life. In a very dark time in my life when I didn't think I could keep going I sent an email to a friend about how sad I was and a year later to that email I met the man I would marry. Things happen when we aren't even paying attention. <3
