Happiness today? Let's see. First, it's Friday. Gotta love that. Second, the sun is out and it's suppose to be like this all weekend. Third, I bought the first round of plants and I'm ready to get my hands dirty ( a Memorial Day tradition) Forth, New Paislee Press Press Plate in the shop. It'll be 20% off through the weekend. Better yet, it's free to Paislee Press Facebook fans.

Fifth, I just picked up a new Canon Selphy printer at a garage sale for $25. Couldn't pass that up.

Sixth, LifeLovePaper is having a sale too! All stamps are 10% off starting tomorrow through Monday (ends at midnight) coupon code is MAY2013. starts tomorrow 12pm eastern.

AND I've got several NEW digital releases that'll be in the shop tomorrow as well. Pretty excited about these.

NSD 2013

(1. Paislee Press lovelies 2. watching my guys rake the yard while enoying a read + a cup of Stumptown's coffee 3. Night owl scrapbooking)

Did you all enjoy your paper + memory filled weekends? I spent NSD setting up my new printer + finishing the month of March in my PL. I'm that behind.

But, it's coming along nicely thanks to a few things that have made my weekend + scrapbooking awesome.

I replaced my old Epson R340 with the " target="_blank">Canon Pixma MG6320.  I love it. So glad I finally made the purchase. I have to thank Liz for enabling. :)

Speaking of Liz, her recent Paislee Press releases You Are Loved + On My Desk have been a huge time saver and inspiring my work like crazy.

(sidenote) thanks for your comments + emails from my last post. never expected that kind of response. much appreciate aka thanks for pushing me.



Did you snag the add ons you wanted? I heard through the grapevine that #4 sold out in a blink of an eye. I didn't get a chance to complete my mini...sometimes I think being overwhelmed with inspiration sort of kills it for me. But my creativity revamps after the reveal. I love seeing what the other ladies did with their kits. We also had a special assignment of pulling an idea from the Studio Calico Pinterest board which was really fun. Another form of pin to action. :) Here are my layouts:

Love the scripty font of the AC thickers in the Greenhouse add on. My "main kit" only layout. It was a refreshing change to use only the main. This Sass/SC exclusive paper is so pretty. And the arrow stamp is by far my favorite. Of course I say that now. :)I adore this photo of Tyler and I'm glad I finally scrapped it.

Another paper love.

And then there was my Pinterest inspo project. Did you catch that when checking out the dt gallery? Here is my original Pinterest inspiration pin from the SC inspo board.

I wanted to do something other than a layout + I needed some artwork for my work/play room. Here's my interpretation:

And then there was a digi. Here's my layout for Photobooth.

Bedtime for this tired mama. xot.

girl looooooooves friday.

This has already been the best weekend so far.I took a personal day off just because. The clouds finally cleared and the weather is amazing. The boy and I set out early to visit my coworkers and see where mommy spends part of her day. Then headed downtown to purchase some Toms for Tyler's fat little baby feet. Mommy also found the maxi dress she's been wanting. Met up with Tyler's cousin and Auntie for the most delicious chicken saugage hot dog. The sun felt so good while we sat outside and enjoyed our lunch. New opportunities and a huge life change is in the horizon. More on that later. No, I'm not pregnant again...let's not go there. ;) I'm excited about celebrating my first Mother's Day with my son and husband. It's funny...I'm more excited about this than my past birthday. AND tomorrow is National Scrapbook Day! Could not ask for a better weekend and it's only just begun.

Paislee Press is having an awesome sale and a new release that I'm loving at the moment.

Studio Calico is hosting a plethora of challenges and give aways. I'd love for you to play along with my paint challenge!

Cheers to a wonderful weekend! xot.
