Today was a good day. :-) I finally met my email buddy, Anilu, in person, as well as her friend, Barbara. We got together at Barbara's house to scrapbook and I had a really good time. I was inspired to create three beautiful (well, I think they're beautiful, but you be the judge!) layouts and I finally got to use stamps (thanks, Anilu!) and my fab new McGill mini tab punch (thanks, Ali Edwards!). You can see my pages by clicking on the "Scrapbook Layouts" link to the right. I used Cocoa Daisy's April kit, Bombay Blue, which is awesome. Anyway, it was a productive scrap day and I'm so glad that I got to meet my new friends. I hope to join them again soon for some more scrappin' fun!!!
Regarding May scrap kits, Jenny Bowlin's got some great sneak peeks on her blog and Cocoa Daisy already has a photo preview on their site... Tomorrow at 9 pm EST, we get to see Scrapologie's kit... tick, tock, tick, tock... I just LOVE all of these kits. It makes croppin' so much fun and my pages seem to just come together so nicely... oh, yes, I'm definitely hooked!

I recently ventured into the world of scrapbooking kits and I have to say that I'm officially addicted! The very first kits I've received are from Cocoa Daisy and Scrapologie and they are both absolutely beautiful. The materials blend together so nicely and it makes the creative process so much fun. I just want to share with you my very first layout using the Scrapologie kit. I LOVE the color scheme. This was my birthday back in October...my mother-in-law, Mari, made me this awesome orange-flavored cake and decorated it beautifully. She even placed a ceramic doll on top holding a candle. Boy, did I feel special. :-)
