I am loving working at Picture Me Perfect! I actually really enjoy working in retail, helping a customer find the perfect “thing” is a lot of fun for me… at Kinko's, it kind of sucked. Choosing resume paper is only so creative. Helping someone who wants to learn how to scrapbook stock up on her very first supplies? A total blast! Helping a sweet husband who is buying birthday gifts for his wife pick fun new product? Too much fun! Getting my hands on the newest latest and greatest moments after it comes in the store? A total inspiration for scrapping! Several nights this first week, I came home and either scrapped or wanted to (working til 10pm can put a damper on the
scrapping thing! LOL)
Anyway, here are some of the pages I've scrapped these last couple of weeks…
The story behind it: This is one that I did after work one night… the title is stamped with these new KI Bubbleletter clear stamps… the stickers in that font are my favorite of all time. I was heartbroken when they were discontinued last year. But my heart is all better now, since I have STAMPS! Even better! Anyway, I was so excited, I came home, took this photo and did this page to play with my new stamps.
And the other story behind it: We aren't going to Australia for our honeymoon after all. We just couldn't get the flights to work out right. *sigh* It was a bummer at the time, but we've moved on to bigger and better plans! At 9am on Sunday May 20, Jamie and I climb onto a plane bound for London! When we arrive in London, we jump on a train to Liverpool (Gee, I wonder why? LOL) to spend a couple of days. We're then taking a ferry from Liverpool to Dublin, where we'll spend another couple of days. We'll go to the Guinness Brewery and to the Book of Kells exhibit at Trinity College and drink too much ale in general and then head south… to PARIS! We're going to spend 4 or 5 days in Paris (a dream come true, as this LO shows) and then back up to London. We'll stay in London for a few, take in a show on the West End (probably Spamalot since Jamie won't go for Equus or Chicago or anything! LOL) and then come home on June 3. We're thrilled (now) with this change of plans, and are counting the days. (We leave 9 weeks from today!)
The story behind it: There was a California Lottery commercial several years ago (like 10 or 15) with a guy in a grocery store, talking about how winning the lottery hadn't really hit him as real… he's walking through the store and you see his POV while he's pushing the cart. At the end of it, he stops in front of the dairy section and says “And then it occurred to me… I could totally afford ALL this cheese!”
It's been kind of a joke in my family for a long time, for some unknown reason, and when I looked at this pic of DH and I with his (almost entire) extended family, the same thought popped into my head. I gained 4 brothers and 3 sisters and various SOs and kids when I married into this crazy family! That's a lot compared to my one sister! LOL
The story behind it: Katie took this series of pics of Faith in her Dollar Spot headband a couple of weeks ago… I printed this pic to scrap, because it cracked my ass up, and I headed off to a crop that night. I got my assignments for the month, and happened to be given these “Seasons” cards. How perfect could they be? The “Spring” card and the flowers at the bottom were from my assigned product. How cute is this kid?
