Ody-Sea! -- Noel Mignon kit! :)

Hi everyone! :)

Today I am sharing a layout I made using the "Vintage Spring Classic" kit from Noel Mignon!!! :)

This week we are focusing on TEXTURE, and this kit has SO many different goodies to add texture to your pages!! :)

I started by grabbing the "We R Memory Keepers" stencil, a piece of cardstock from the kit and some of my own "Snow-Tex" to add some texture to my page! :)

I spread the "Snow-Tex" along the stencil and let it dry -- 

And here is how it turned out :)

And here is my page :)

And here is a close up of my border I created with the stencil! :) 

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

What Happens in Las Vegas, Stays in a Scrapbook Forever :) -- Part 3 :)

Hi everyone! :)

Last month, we went to Las Vegas to celebrate Adam's 21st birthday (which was in February), and I made TWO mini-albums (one for us, and one for Adam) and over the next three days, I wanted to share one of the albums with you!! (I am sharing the two covers, as they are pretty much the same inside! LOL!) 

I used a Simple Stories album along with their photo inserts, more Simple Stories goodies, along with Bella Blvd., Fancy Pants, A Flair For Buttons, Pretty Little Studios, Paper House Productions, Cosmo Cricket, Chic Tags .... and there is probably some I am forgetting! LOL!! Let's just say, I used A LOT of scrappy stash on these albums! HA! :)

So -- let's get started!! :)

(PS -- sharing the covers again!) :)


A lot of people wonder how we can afford to do so much when we visit Las Vegas ... and to be honest, while Las Vegas is WAY expensive (for tourists! LOL!) -- I am a very smart shopper, and we know a lot of 'free' places to visit too! :)

I use Groupon while we are there and get cheaper tickets that way, the Bellagio's conservatory is free to visit, as is Count's Kustom's and the Flamingo gardens. I also earn comp points with my M-Life card, and that gets me discounted tickets, and free stuff too :)  So there are ways to enjoy Las Vegas on a budget! Trust me, I know! And yes, I know, I 'lost' money on the High Roller ride, but that was all on me and my fear-o-heights!!  HA! :)

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