Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a splendid weekend.
Mine was pretty swell. It involved watching a lot of football, homework and Christmas shopping. The football watching was not so good as ALL of my teams lost. And, homework is homework. But the shopping? Yes, the shopping was good! I scored a new suitcase for all of my work trips, a lovely new green handbag, skinny jeans and a sweater, plus a few new spices from Penzey’s. There is nothing like a little retail therapy to boost a girl’s sprits! I did actually manage to get some Christmas gifts too :)
Today is More in Store Monday at JessicaSprague.com. There are lots of fun new kits in shop! One of which is the Monotone Fresh Feathers from Kitschy Digitals, which isn’t a new kit, but is new to JS.com. Here is a fun layout I made with the kit:
Caden (12 x 12 Digital): Embellishments (Kitschy Digitals Monotone Fresh Feathers; Echo Park Abundance Elements 2) + Patterned Paper (Echo Park – Abundance 2 Paper Pack) + Stitches (Creativity by Crystal – You are Awesome Kit) + Solid Cardstock (Katie Perteit – Classic Cardstock) + Alphabet (Katie Perteit – Wooden Alpha 2) + Photo Credits (Jill Riese Photography)
Don’t you love the photo of my nephew, Caden? This wonderful shot was taken by my talented cousin, Jill, owner of Jill Riese Photography. She did a photo shoot for my sister and her family, and gave me the OK to use her amazing photos in my digital scrapbooking (my sis gave the ok too!). If you’re local to Lincoln/Omaha, you definitely need to check her out! She is especially great with children and families. Even if you’re not local, take a peek for some wonderful inspiration.
Speaking of inspiration, if you’re in search of some, Jessica Sprague is offering a FREE class called Inspiration Everywhere.
The class runs from November 29-December 8. The best part is, that this class is for EVERYONE, not just digital scrappers. Hop on over here for more information and to register. Trust me, you don’t want to miss out!
Whew…that was a lot for a Monday, right? Time for a nap :)
Ps. If you view my blog through a Blogger Blog Roll, there seems to be some issue that's preventing my blog from updating in these views. Just an FYI so you don't miss out on anything fun! If you subscribe through a reader, such as Google Reader (my fave!) you should have no problems. Thanks :)
