Mail eye candy...

Look what arrived in the post today...

Isn't this the prettiest envelope?  It is from Kellie at Give a Girl a...Stamp Shop. Check out her sweet blog and shop.
Next was the unwrapping.  I will definitely use the envelope and embellishments in a scrapbooking layout.

Then finally the unveiling of the delicious stamps inside. This was a prize I won for sketch the layout at Life Project Scrapbook.

 I am in total love with these stamps. They will be so useful on my layouts particularly as I seem to use date stamps nearly all of the time.  The tag and arrow stamps are so cute  and versatile too.
To all those Aussie mums out there...happy Mother's Day on Sunday. Maybe you will be spoilt with crafty time over the weekend.

Guest Designer Layout...

I made it as a Guest Designer!!! The website is an Australian scrapbooking site called  Life Paper Scrapbook. I don't know if I will ever be lucky enough to be a guest designer again so I have cracked open the champers. Check out my layout here.

I had to design a layout based on a sketch so I had fun playing with the main Studio Calico Spencer kit and the card kit from March. The card kit contained the funkiest "light bulb" stamp made by Lawn Fawn. I immediately thought school layout.  My son is quite academic so it was a perfect addition.

Thanks for stopping by...
