Jillibean-Home made 6 bean soup

Here is a page I made using Jillibean's Home made 6 bean soup collection. I used it to make a page from when I went to Charleston, SC to visit with my nephew who just got a firefighting job there. The colors in this line were just perfect! This layout I kept pretty simple since I had so many pictures to try and fit on, but I did my best to fit as much pattern and pizazz to my page as I could ;)

Materials Used:
Home made 6 bean Soup-Navy Beans
Home made 6 bean soup-Cardstock Stickers
Prima Flowers
Kaisercraft-Orange Bling

Basic Grey-That's My Dad Page

For this page I used the Basic Grey "Max & Whiskers" line, a wonderful pet line. But I decided to change it up a bit and rather than using it for my pets I ended up making a "dad" page with it, the colors are perfect and there are tons of generic patterns that can go for any occasion (especially for men and the beach!)

Materials Used:
*Brown and White Cardstock
*Max-2452 (Simon)
*Max-2463 (Hercules)
*Max-2461 (Mittens)
*Black Thickers
*White Uniball Pen
*Tim Holtz Edge Distressor

Scrapbook Art Grand Opening

Scrapbook Art had their Grand Opening Saturday, July 30th & it was a success! I went up with Tiffany and my mom (who used to own Pizazz It! Scrapbooks). We went in early, around 9am to set up some diecuts we made for them and welcomed everybody into the store when they opened at 10am. Us at Pizazz It told everybody via facebook that we would be there in the morning if anybody wanted to drop by and see the store and say "hello" to us and sure enough we ran into some of our old "customers". It was really great catching up with everyone we ran into =)

For anybody who reads this and wants to come see us from Pizazz It! most of us will be at Scrapbook Art all day on August 20th for their all day crop, so please stop by and catch up with us!

Of course, I wouldn't be a true scrapbooker if I didn't take photos of Scrapbook Arts grand opening.... so here are some photos. If you haven't made it in yet be sure to make some time and visit, Terri the new owner had set up the store beautifully and there really is a LOT of nice NEW things.
