oooh new products!!

New collections are slowly starting to make their way into the store which means time for me to play! With CHA just two weeks away it's time for 'out with the old and in with the new'! I'm really loving what I'm seeing so far and it's doing wonders to get my mojo revved up.

I spent today finishing up samples for a new 3 in 1 from Basic Grey with the new Oliver line but you'll have to watch the TSF blog for those ;).

I also had a chance to use some of the new My Little Yellow Bicycle travel collection. When I was in Montreal in the fall I took a ton of architectural photos and wasn't sure what to do with them. Well, they worked perfectly and here's what I came up with:

And yes, I did cut out all of those wee little suitcases! I imagine that's how much luggage Paris Hilton must travel with! There are lots of great embellishments that go along with this line and some have already sold out. Don't worry though, Carolyn has been busy ordering more.

Keep watching for more samples as all of the new lines roll in.

I've been a bad blogger...

With summer here it's been go go go and not very much time on the computer. The boys are keeping me super busy. I haven't been scrapbooking very much but did manage to get all of Holden's layouts into one very thick book, finally. It really is cool to get them all in and then look through them and see him grow as well as seeing how my style has changed since his first layouts. Now to organize Wyatt's. In a few weeks I'll be heading up to our cottage for 2 whole weeks which means lots of scrapbooking time in the evenings after the boys are in bed. I can't wait!

Here's a picture of our cottage which is in Oliphant, about 10 mins from Sauble Beach. It's quiet, secluded and peaceful...until we arrive!!! The beach is out front and the backyard is a safe place for the boys to play and do all kinds of 'boy' stuff like get really dirty, find frogs etc. I'm very thankful that my inlaws have given us free reign over this little piece of paradise for the past few years while they spend the summer at their house in Greece.

Now if only I could figure out a way to get rid of the bats, spiders and mosquitos I'd be a very happy camper!

Hope everyone is enjoying the summer so far (despite the heat)!
