New Bo Bunny, Nikki Sivils Sugar Cookie and more

Still no computer here so I don't always get to update the blog as much as I want. I can't believe I have gone all week though! I am going to cram everything into this post so it might be a long one!

First up- the weather! Brrrr, it's cold outside! Only 6 degrees here in Chicago today. I really cannot wait until I can take the girls outside to play. I am getting a little tired of being stuck in the house. Hopefully it is warmer where you live.
Next, since I still have not gotten my new laptop (that was supposed to be my Christmas present) I decided to buy a Christmas gift for myself! This is what I chose:

Aren't they darling? My neighbor had some with her childrens' names and I fell in love with them! Mine will say Frances and Isabel and have their birthstones on them. You can find them and all kinds of cute silver stuff at The Vintage Pearl. I have already left some hints about other stuff I want for Mother's day too!

It was Maya Road week on the Nikki Sivils blog and to celebrate the last day there is a give away today! I created this wall hang from the cover of the Maya Road scallopped heart chipboard album and the Nikki Sivils Sugar Cookie line.

There's a ribbon to hang it, but I couldn't get a picture of it hanging anywhere and when I set it in the light box the ribbon fell in the back. I used the rest of the album to make more wall hangs that will be in Nikki's booth at CHA. If you are there stop by and take a peak. I also made a mini album with the Maya Road LOVE album and Nikki's new Summer papers that will also be in the booth.

Nikki also revealed here new birthday line- "It's Your Day". I loved working with this line and it was perfect for Frances's 2nd birthday pics. I just can't wait to show you all my projects with the new lines after CHA!

Here is a peak of "It's Your Day" and you can see the full line and some of the DT's work on Nikki's blog. I chose the cut ups paper because it's always my favorite sheet of paper in every line.

And I have to share the new Bo Bunny lines!!! You can still win some too by going to their blog and leaving comments on the posts. I won't show you the complete line, but just a few of my favorites from each.

Blast Off- I have a serious addiction monkeys so I am in LOVE with this little guy. Even with two girls I can see the projects I'll make with this one.

Vickie B- What can I say? I love it all! The colors, the flowers, I see some Mother's Day projects here!
Ad Lib- OMG!! I just love everything about this one! So hard to pick just one thing!

And last:

Timepiece- I don't really do vintage, shabby that much, but now I see some shabby layouts in my future!

This is just a small taste of the new lines. The rest is awesome! I won't have my hands on this stuff until the end of February, so you might receive it before me if you win one of the give aways- LOL!

And lastly- Did you hear that Sassafras is having a DT call? Oh my word do I love Sassafras! When Frances was first born I discovered them at Michaels and bought everything I could. All of Frances's first scrapbook pages are using Sassafras stuff. Oh how I would love to be on that team. I can dream right?
I have been working like a busy little scrapper bee creating some new layouts to send in with my application. Can y'all please keep your fingers crossed for me?

Well I am not going to show you my new projects or what I am submitting just yet, but here are some of my very first layouts of Frances. Not my best work for sure, I was just starting out, but Frances sure does look cute doesn't she? Amazing how different my layouts look in only two years! Plus I discovered how to use photoshop so my pictures and photos of my layouts look a lot better too.

Stay warm!! ~ Sarah
