BINGO! -- featuring Jillibean Soup and Skittles :)

Hi everyone :)


This past Friday night a few bloggy friends (one was visiting from out of state!) and we got together for dinner, chatting and crafty gift exchange :) 


I always love meeting with these girls and I wanted to share a layout and 2 cards I made with the goodies that I got from our crafty gift exchange :)


But first a photo of me and the girls :)

Tammy, Carri, Sherrie and Me :)






And here is a layout I made using 6x6 burlap papers (they are amazing!) that Sherrie gave us, Skittles that Carri gave us (LOVE them!) and some Jillibean Soup ephemera from their "Mix the Media" collection :)


We went to Prescott, Arizona a couple of weekends ago, and that is always where we got Adam and Brookie's old-time photos taken ... well, since Adam is not living here anymore ... I talked Brian into taking the photo with Brookie :)











And here are a couple of cards I made using the Scrappy Mom stamps that Tammy gave us and some older Echo Park papers I had in my stash :)




Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)
