Oh yes, she replied. Anything can be a hat.

Yes. Anything can be a hat when you need it to be. Allison whipped out a great idea just in the nick of time and we proceeded to wear a Fiskars tote as a rain shield! CHA = INSPIRATION. What a blast. It is amazing how a short 5 hour drive can turn into a LONG 10 hour adventure with 6 snack crazy/ shopping frenzy ladies. (Sherri & Carol not pictured) The six of us had a great time though and brought back so many ideas to share!

Digital World here we come. Prima has done it again. They have stunned us with this great new "Hybrid" product. The above pictured layout is completed using a new digital CD that is designed to coordinate with real embellishments. This will take your breathe away. Call the store to sign up with Michelle, she will be walking you through the digital world starting this Fall with her "Digital Series Classes" It is the perfect way to combine the best of both worlds... traditional scrapping and the breathtaking digital too!

Sneak peak at my new birthday banner. I Love fabric and these banners are so fun to create. ( I purchased this one from MODA, but think if the possibilities with paper and fabric) Create your own for your next family celebration.
