Babies everywhere!

Birds that is. We have a yard full of babies chirping. Tiny Quail, Cardinals, Catcus Wrens, Thrashers... plus this Roadrunner. Roadrunners are hard to photograph, because if they see you move they are off. This is a young Roadrunner and he wanted to camouflage himself once he went out in the open - somewhat. These are the coolest birds to see, they hop/fly and mainly run -fast!

For a non-feathered note, we are expecting BasicGrey any day now.

Seven Gypsies

The new Calais collection of papers - really cool Paper Clips, Clear Stamps, and Stickers. Also, the Artist Trading Cards Matchbox kit with a silver handle- Great little project!
I like the unique paper clips matching the line -and- that you get 10 clips, enough to use on scrap pages and some for bookmarks
The buckles come 2 of each design and there are 4 designs in a package. They match previous products -see/notice the end of the video.

Crate and KI Memories

Consider adding Crate Ribbon to your stash - I'm finding it matches with a lot of other paper lines. Which is a plus on the pocketbook. The cool large clip is a Bonus.

Creative Bite 6/11/07

8.5 x 11 Layout using the New Imagination Project Yesterdays Collection paper and stickers with Seven Gyspies stamp on top for some journaling lines . Also used Fancy Pants rub-ons, Scenic Route Chipboard Circles, and Heidi Swapp Ghost Wings.
Now I'm heading to the refrig for some cantalope. I just read in Cooking Light's June issue, page 30 the comparision between cantalope VS watermelon. Cantalope has way more vitamin C and A. I'm going to give cantalope a fair try VS the huge amounts of watermelon I eat now.

ScrapWorks Fastners

This is the cutest packaging - love the little tin. The "lunch box" includes 48 metal fastners and 72 brads. In the photo, my son is holding the case to let you see the size - 4.25 x 3 x 1.5. Rasberries, blackberries, & strawberries have arrived - time for
a fruit tart!

Crate Paper Ribbon

This is wonderful and classic ribbon on a large metal clip. The designs work so well with the Crate line of papers... but in the 3rd photo I mixed them with the new Imagination Project Yesterdays Collection, just to show you how they will work with other papers. Crate Paper is such a quality line -I hope you like it as much as we do.

The Fashionista line is a big favorite in our office with the ladies. My son wants to use the 12x12 paper in his Matchbox city to "control traffic Mom".
