Spring Fever .... achooooo!!!!

Congrats to Jennifer on the WIN!!!!! Enjoy the BG products -- they're FANTASTIC!!!!

Hi Everyone!!! Just Jill checking in to see how everything is going. Yes....I've been following the Crop and Cruise Blog and have been itching to post again, however, other things have gotten in the way. I'm just getting over a nasty cold (head, nose, fever, etc.) and hoping & praying that my kids don't get it from me. Anticipating getting my scrap-space back in working condition, as we JUST finished some huge renos on our house (main floor) and my office is sitting in piles in our back upstairs bedroom. I should really post a before / after photo on this one 'cuz you will not believe it after I get everything back to working condition. I'm soooooo excited!!!!

Although I have NOT started working on my cruise album yet (I did a HUGE 12x12 album for the 2007 Crop and Cruise -- over achieving, I guess), I am looking forward to getting my paws on all that Luxe paper and the Prima Build-a-Book project that Trisha gave all of us. I know.....pattern paper can be scarey for some of you but, believe me, I am sooooooo excited to create something with all of it and show you that it doesn't need to be a project you sweat over -- Trisha's album ws gorgeous!!!! I'm addicted to PP (the first step is admitting it, I know), so I will share what I create with you at a later date. {check Leica's out on her blog}.
So.......wanted to share some pics of some layouts that I've created lately with the Making Memories Kit we all got from Deanna on the cruise. I added a few more MM products to the kit & some Riff Raff Designs images. Other than that, everything is Making Memories -- love it!!!!! I simply took the kit (baggie in hand) to my basement -- away from my scrap-space -- so that I would ONLY USE products from the kit. It was a bit of a challenge -- not being able to go into my office and pick my latest & greatest from other companies, slapping some paint on whenever I wanted, grabbing whatever I wanted from my embellishment muffin tins and stapling it on (you all know me by now!!!!) -- but I actually stayed within my rules and kept the layouts to Making Memories & Riff Raff. Yeah!!!!!!
Hope everyone enjoys their day.
Spring is finally here.
Go outside, rake the lawn, play fetch with the dog, go for a walk.
{you can scrap tonight}.
