Hide & Seek

Ok, I have to say that I'm very proud of myself right now. Why do you ask? Because I recently got a new paper pad which has Cosmo Cricket's Girl Friday in it, and I actually USED some of it today! I've been wanting some of this paper for MONTHS now, but it's too much for me by the sheet. Well, last week when I was at Michael's, I saw that they now carry the double decks for $20, so I went back a few days ago, armed with a 50% off coupon, and got the Girl Friday/Everafter one for only $10! I was soooooo excited. The thing is though...when I have paper like this that I'm really loving, I can't seem to make myself do anything with it. It's just too pretty! ;)

Well today, I MADE myself get some out and start creating with it. I'm so glad I did it too because I love the layout! I used some pics of the girls playing hide & seek on a recent visit to their Nanny's house and they worked perfectly...

Supplies: Cosmo Cricket Paper - Girl Friday; Fiskars Easy Squeeze Punches - That's Amore and Round & Round; Making Memories Sanding Block; Making Memories Button; Making Memories Tiny Alphas - Chloe's Closet; EK Sucess Flower Punch

So if any of you are like me and find yourself hoarding your paper, STOP IT! Go make it into something beautiful. Trust'll be glad you did. ;)

An awesome note: This layout was featured on Cosmo Cricket's Facebook page on 1/7/10!! How cool is that?? :)

It turned out very pretty April. Haha, I was just like you once, I didn't want to cut in any of my papers LOL. Now ... I can't wait to start cutting as soon as I've bought them ... I really should find a healthy balance between those two LOL.
