I've been wanting a new watch for a few months now. The one I have is about 4 years old and, let's face it, it's seen better days. I'm very hard on watches and they wear out quite quickly. My current watch has a dodgy battery anyway that's had to be replaced 3 times already. So annoying.
So, while at the mall one day, we popped into a jewelry store to see what they had. My eyes settled on 2 really pretty watches. I tried on the slim bangle-like one first. It was pretty, but once I tried on the second one, the pretty little slim won lost, fair and square.
This watch is so expensive it's not even funny. Actually, my husband would find it very funny...
Oh, a girl can dream right? :)
Here's another sweet page I did for Scrapbook Inspirations magazine. :) Click the image to enlarge it...it may be hard to read the text at this size.
And here's the full size layout:
I'm kinda bummed that the layout credits didn't make it into the mag, but what can we do about it now right? LOL :) Anyway, here they are:
Thanks for stopping by! I hope you're having a wonderful day! :)

It's time for another fun challenge here at 2Ps and I am so excited to be sharing this one with you all! I just love the design of these soda/juice bottles and the colors are just to die for! Since I loved them so much, I decided to create a mini kit and template for everyone to use just in case you wanted to use the colors from the inspiration as well. And the template is there to help everyone participate. Scrap time seems to running away from me at a rapid pace these days! I hope you like the inspiration and I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!
I hope to see many lovely layouts from you all!
You can participate in the challenge HERE and you can pick up the free kit and template HERE.
Thanks for stopping by! Happy scrapping! :)
Congratulations to poohdivams! I'll be sending you my Caldera kit today. Thanks so much for playing along in my little contest! :)
And I wanted to share another gorgeous layout from my CT! This one is by debra (4noisyboys). I just can't get over how much color she used! Wow!
Thanks for stopping by! We're having a much needed lazy weekend. Hung out with some wonderful (and much missed) friends last night and we're hanging with some more friends tonight.
I hope you're having a lovely weekend, whatever you may be up to. :) Thanks for stopping by!
I love days like today. I have disconnected from the internet (accept for this brief fling with blogging). I've put out the new bird bath, topped up the water in our sadly trickling fountain, spent the morning chatting with my lovely friend Tracy and (because I did 5 hours of ironing yesterday) I am relaxing. The girls have a friend over and I'm chilling with a cheesy Scottish Highlander romance novel. (Hey, it's my summer break, too!)
Tonight we're having some fish and veggies for dinner (super easy, all-in-one pan type deal) and then I have a date with Colin to watch Order of the Phoenix. We haven't seen it yet and we need to brush up before we go see the new one.
I hope everyone is having a wonderful day! I'll leave you with some really cool, (and Heaven only knows how expensive) retro inspired kitchen appliances.

They even have orange as a color choice.
Oh to have my own kitchen again. :)
I saw this jewelry company recently on design-milk.com and was instantly fascinated. I love a good mix of modern+vintage. Or in this case: lovely+lovelier.
Wouldn't this necklace be a dream to wear with a pale cream dress with a deep neckline? sigh....
I just can't get over how completely original and gorgeous it is. Oh, where's a fairy godmother when you need one?!?
Haven't you ever wanted to visit someplace so bad you could taste it? Can you picture yourself there, amidst the locals, savoring every moment that comes your way? I absolutely love dreaming about new places to go. A couple of months ago I was lucky enough to get to visit Santorini, my favorite of the Greek isles. Although it was a short trip, I had such a wonderful time and am aching to go back.
I was inspired so much by the experience that I created a fun little kit for everyone! The lava of the volcano, the blue of the Aegean sea and the grey color of the black sand beaches are enough to make anyone fall in love with this beautiful island.
Do you have a dream vacation? If so, I want to know about it! Scrap a page about a place you'd love to visit (or even move to!) and leave me a link here in the comments. Every layout will get you a chance to win my new Caldera kit for free!

And don't forget to sign up for my newsletter! You never know what kind of goodies I may have for you!
I hope everyone is having a wonderful day! :) Just wanted to pop in and show off some of the awesome layouts my creative team has made with my new frames! I even found a bit of time to scrap, too! :) All images are clickable if they are linked to a gallery. I will update the ones that aren't as soon as they are posted online.

And one from me! Yay! It feels so good to be scrapping something that isn't an assignment! :) I used some of my new goodies that will be debuting on Tuesday. And I just love these shaped frames. Can't get enough of them! :)
Thank so much for stopping by! I hope you are having a wonderful weekend! :)
I've got some fun new photo frames available in my shop at 2Ps!
They come in 2 different sizes, standard and skinny. I've had this idea in my head for a while and I'm so happy to finally have it finished! :) Each image is clickable! Thanks for stopping by! :)
