*a new car* :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

Hi all....


So, our SUV has been falling apart on us for awhile...nickel and diming us to death with the cost of gas for it and the parts that have needed to be replaced... so yesterday.. Brian went and got us a new (and CHEAPER! YAY!) car! :):):):):):):):):):):):):) Here is the newest edition to our family .....


Isn't she pretty??? I like her a lot... just gonna have to get used to going from an SUV to a little car! LOL!! But the good news is... BIG TRUNK that can still transport my scrappy goodies!! LOL! You know that is important to me! LOL :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

And yesterday... I went to my friend Paige's house to scrap with her and Joni!!! HAD sooooooooooo much FUN!! This is the 2nd time Paige and I have gotten together and the first time for me and Joni!! These girls are soooooooooo fun!!! Here is Joni and Paige scrapping away... :)


And here is Paige's little doggy Hershey!! Isn't she adorable!?!?!? :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)


And here is Hershey trying to scrap with Joni! LOL! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)


And here are two of the three pages I made while I was hanging out with these FAB-O girls! I used Echo Park's "Life is Good" on these! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)













And here is a little house warming gift I made for a friend at work that just got a new place :):):):):):) I will be putting a plant in it for her! :):):):) I made this using Nikki Sivils Victoria's Street line! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)








And I wanted to let everyone know that Blue Moon Scrapbooking.com just got in the LATEST Tim Holtz Sizzix Dies in!!!! Woooooooooooo Hooooooooooooooo!!! They are AMAZING!!  Here is my fave one!!! :):):):):):):):) And Blue Moon has Sizzix dies at 10% off everyday!!!! :):):):):):):):):):):)


And Audra is having her very first blog giveaway!! Get over to her blog to now only see her AMAZING work.... but get in her drawing too! :):):):):):):) You will LOVE this girl... not only is she amazingly talented...she is GORGEOUS too! :):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):):)

  21. Woohoo for the new ride!! Transitioning from an SUV to a car would be tough, but at least there is room for scrap supplies (the important stuff!). Great new projects too! I love the strips of the Echo Park paper you used on the top layout.

    Hope your weekend was great! :)

  30. Hi sweetie! Long time no stop by. Oooohhh wish I had a new car, esp a pretty white one :) And, not to scare you, but my nephew is 19 and now SIX foot SEVEN inches...why he is not playing basketball, I'll never know! LOL

    ReplyDelete
  31. Okay, your "Do the math" layout is cracking this short girl up! It reminds me of my "little brother" layout from a few years ago (I know you remember it because you still refer to it every now and then).

    Congrats on the new car! It's stunning!

    ReplyDelete
  32. Hi Julie,,, I love the new addition to your family. Pretty! You will love driving a smaller car. I like Hershey too! Too cute!

  33. Congrats on the new car! It's nice not to have a car that nickels and dimes you.. we had to get a car last May because of the same problem.

    Love the pages.. I especially love the one with you and your son.. My mom was 5'9" too! I am shortest! ha! Figures! My sister is 6'2" and my brothers are all over 6'! Crazy!

  36. Congrats on the shiny white new car! Wow! We have a white car but it's turning kinda greenish and muddy from staying in front of the house... white cars needs washing you know.. but Adam is tall enough to do that! LOVE that layout about your lenghts!!! STunning!!!

    ReplyDelete
  37. LOVE everything you made Julie! If you don't mind, I'll borrow the idea from you to make a lo about how my boys are growing up to be taller than me! Frightning if you think that Marco is my baby but at 12 he is already a little taller than me!!!!!!! >:-O

    ReplyDelete
  38. Congrats on the new car Julie!! But I wouldn't call it a "small" car. Here in Holland a car that size is a BIG one!! (hihi)

  39. You've had a busy weekend. I particually love that little house, how sweet.
    Fab new car : )
    Isn't it strange going from an SUV to a regular car? I have an SUV and feel like I'm sat on the ground when I travel in another car.
