Yesterday I hit Archiver's with the full intention of blowing all the money I would have spent had I gone to CHA this month. I should have known that things don't ship that soon after the show as I found not a lot new stuff yet. Thankfully, there were several new lines from My Mind's Eye! I had just come from an hour of cardio kickboxing so my legs were too tired for more squatting, so I sat on the floor to drool over the new stuff. Another shopper remarked "Nice stash there! I'll have to take a look when you are done." Oops, I guess I made myself a tad too comfortable, all stretched out with piles of goodies next to me :)
KI has a new collection called flashback and Archiver's must have ordered just a few sheets from this line. I really liked it and came home with some papers and used them in this layout. It's so nice to see an old favorite company coming back with new stuff. I hope this is a sign that KI is back in the game! I'll be ready with wallet in hand :)
This layout documents a recent anecdote: First Born declaring for Jesus and her need to work on her "humanity" when she really meant humility :) Now that I think about, I will add some quotes around the title.
I think my favorite ready-made embellishments will always be chipboard elements. Here is an adorable bicycle from Crate Paper's Fourteen collection.
The "True Story" is cut using a Laina Lamb die from My Favorite Things' Die-namics called "Accent It - Story Starters." I trimmed it into arrow shape to match the others on the page.
It started to sleet and snow when I was leaving the YMCA this afternoon so I decided not to go to the Chinese market. I'm a scaredy-cat when it comes to winter driving. Now I have to go figure out what to make for meals since I don't have the ingredients! Oh the humility!!! :)
