and asked me to add something "over the long weekend".
Essie left town yesterday, but she left feeling badly. Not "sick" badly, but badly like she'd let her blog readers down. She's been a bit out of sorts lately - why is it that the end of the school year always does that to us moms?
So as she was packing up the car she texted me (and texting for Essie is a big deal!!). She texted me her password and asked if I'd throw something up on the blog - something that would be pretty to look at and give everyone something to read and/or copy over the weekend.
Well, here it is evening time - and I'm just getting around to it. But I figure some of you might have this whole week off - being that it's the first week of summer vacation in some parts of the country!
So - what to blog about. What to post. What to add?
All I could come up with is the slew of pages I've finished up this weekend - ready to take to Buffalo. We've heard that Buffalo CKC is going to be a rockin' show. The sales floor is filled to capacity, classes are listed as sold out, crops have waiting lists and the downtown Buffalo hotels and parking garages have all been put on notice! Rumor has it that half of Canada is going to be vacant! They're all going to be in Buffalo!
Since we heard all of this - I decided it was time to spruce up the Scrap-Mart booth. Mainly because Justin and I get tired of looking at the same old pages. But also because new pages gives me new things to show off and talk about to new customers. Plus, I can spend all day scrappin' and legitimately tell my kids "mommy is working"!
So, without a lot of fanfare or any witty banter...some fresh pages to peruse...brought to you by yours truly!
Here I used the newest Scenic Route line "Liberty" (which I'm sorry to say is currently only carried in our convention booth, but when it gets put on the site...we'll let you know), some Scenic Route chipboard stars and the QK Grand Blossom font.
This page uses Sassafras Lass Big Bottom Paper (again, this is currently only booth product...but we'll update as it becomes available here), Scenic Route chipboard alphabet and the new QK Scalloped Border.
Here is some of the new Tinkering Ink paper, the QK Cookie Cutter Alphabet Mary Jane & QK Rockstar and the cute new Sassafras Lass buttons & flowers.
On this page, I got a bit lazy, and used Scenic Route Metropolis...only Metropolis. I just love their stuff...and they do all the matching work, so why not take advantage of that? Cool!
This one uses more "Liberty" from Scenic Route and the QK Exotic Island font (the one in the coconut). This font is awesome, because it's like getting 2 fonts for the price of one. Check it out!
For right now - I have to get back to packing. All of this has to make it to Buffalo safe-and-sound...but my suitcase is already busting at the seams. I think it's time to reevaluate what all I'm taking. But we are planning an awesome weekend in Buffalo. If you're coming to the convention, make sure you stop by. Also, I'll be at the Friday Night Fun-FIlled Crop...giving away some wonderful QK goodies!
Essie will be back in a few days. Until then - happy scrapping!
