My 2 Sons

Last weekend I was at my home away from home, Memories Manor, for a scrap retreat where I made this layout.
In making it I have discovered 3 new loves...yes 3!

The first is The Paper Bakery where I found the sketch. They are having a sketch challenge if you wish to check it out. The owner, Sarah, is the sweetest thing ever and I have purchased some flair badges from her recently....with a free shipping special no less!!! You will be seeing them in my future projects for sure!!

The second is the Heidi Swapp Color Shine mist. Love how fast it dries and the glitter it has and how I can get nice big drops on my page.

The third is the Maggie Holmes collection from Crate Paper. This is a must have and you will definitely be seeing more of this on my blog. You can find this collection at Scrapbook Memories and More. That's where I got it.

PP & Ephemera: Crate Paper
Enamel dots: MME
Stickers: Glitz
Mist: Heidi Swapp
Wood Veneer: Studio Calico
