Got home to two packages waiting on my doorstep. Jamie and I were both dripping wet, having got caught in a sudden downpour while walking back to the car at the shopping centre. So it was a welcome diversion to wrestle open the packages and uncover the goodies inside.
One box is from Scrapbook Trends (USA), for this layout which appears in the May issue:
Side by Side
Jeepers, scrapping gear must be cheap in the US. They say that their goodie pack includes $20 worth of stuff. I swear! It's easily $60 worth in Australian terms. I am in heaven! Although I must find some girly photos to scrap though because I have some amazing easter papers that are distinctly pink! Anyone got girly easter photos, lol? Otherwise I have to be creative as to how I can sneak them onto some of Jamie's page. Thinking, thinking, thinking...
The other package was from Designing Memories. I am guest designer for katja's July kit. Oooh, such delicious goodies :). But you'll have to wait a while for me to share.
So, I have just been sorting through lots of stuff. Pulling them all out of their little bags, sorting through them. Fingering the paper, running my hands through the ribbon, sniffing the flowers. You know, all the stuff you do when you get a pile of yummy new goodies to play with. I have been on a serious "use your stash" mission over the last few months, so new goodies is a treat :D.
We had the weekend off on the house. Perhaps that's also why I feel so upbeat today. Phil had done his back while he was interstate for work last week. So there was no working to be had at the Link household this weekend. Well, that is... I still had washing, cooking, vacuuming, mopping, dishes, baby caring etc etc. But I had no house renovations. A weekend off!
Well, I've got photos to print while J naps. No time to talk when there's fresh goodies on the table.
