Saturday stuff

Today I spent all day in Omaha, running errons, picking up papers for classes, photos at Sam's ...that kind of stuff. Kind of a gloomy day..windy and chilly,but it was still nice drive. I've been gone since this morning, so no time to play with my Tattered Angels goodies today, but I did this simple layout last night. The corners and the butterfly are two different lines of the new printed chipboard pieces. But the really fun things is I made my own patterned paper , using glimmer mist and one of the new Glimmer screens. You can see how easy if is to coordinate your papers and chipboard. I used some of the new colors
Cream de Chocolat
Creme de Rouge
Creme de Cocoa

( sorry for the refection on the photo) I knew it would be dark when I got home tonight, so I just snapped a quick photo this morning before I left.
I loved the results I got when I inking the edges with my CatEye ink pad (Chestnut Roan). It took the ink so well.
I also have to say, the Chipboard having an adhesive back was SOOO NICE!

My favorite scrapper from Finland, Kristi
gave me "You made my day" award. Thanks friend!
I'm supposed to name some of my faves too...but I have so many now I wouldn't even know where to begin. YOU ALL make my day!
Don't for get the "Midwinters Fantasy Retreat" give a way.
