Hooray for play days! No, not the kind where you do sack races and balloon tosses. I'm talking about the days where I get to work on store samples. I am so lucky to get to play around with new products and hopefully they provide some inspiration.

Here are two from the new BoBunny lines. Bobunny always does a fantastic job but these two collections in particular are outstanding.

Midnight Frost is all cool blues and greys with tiny hints of purple and green.

I crinkled up some wired ribbon and added some mini pom pom trim (they reminded me of snowballs) then used staples and glue dots to stick it down.

Crazy Love is simply adorable.

Pink and brown combined with birds and flowers, what more could you ask for?

*thanks to Cheryl for this pic of her beautiful daughter Meghan!

This collection from The Paper Loft is ideal for all of your heritage/family history layouts.

For this layout I used an old photo of my mom. The journalling reads:

"At first glance this picture is just another retro, poor quality photo. What it is to me is a connection to my mother and our shared love of photography. I can't imagine how happy she would have been to experience digital cameras!"

I must have been in the mood to crinkle and smoosh paper and trim today since there seems to be a bit of a trend with these layouts!

Anyhoo, how's that Christmas shopping going??

Beautiful inspiration Shelby! These three lines are amazing! Christmas shopping? Oh yah - I am supposed to be doing that before the 25th aren't I? lol Let's just say, it is not going well. Hopefully this next week will allow me the time to get it done :)
