It's pouring...

And I hate it. It's depressing. Booooo.

It's especially bad when I have to get up early...because I don't want to get out of bed. lol.

A huge package of Leave Memories stamps arrived the other day from Holli. So after I spent a day mounting and cutting, I played with them. I would've liked to play with them more of course, but still fun stuff. Can't wait to play some more!!





A couple of friends came home over the weekend, so I got to hang out with them. Went shopping with Nora on Saturday. Good times. I got a polo shirt for $3! And we went to Target and she bought MY shoes (pffft. I know you're reading this!) Then went out for boba with Amy on Sunday...then ended up at Target AGAIN and she almost bought my shoes but she ended up with another pair. Would've been quite hilarious if all my friends ended up with those shoes. Ha.

So I was looking through a bunch of magazines...and I keep being attracted to yellow. I keep seeing yellow. Soft yellow, bright yellow, golden yellow....I love yellow. But I never scrap with yellow. But I totally should. I totally would. Except I don't have any yellow cardstock on me right now. So next time I go scrap shopping (which I have been trying to avoid since I am quite poor right now!), I shall pick up a ton of yellow cardstock.

I saw some ad with a soft yellow, soft pink and brown combo. So pretty. I tried to recreate in Photoshop...


Close enough.


Love this thing from Domino too. I screen shot their sneak peek thing...but I need to get my hands on this issue.

And I am in love with this umbrella, which inspired one of the LOs above...

Cute stuff.

Oh, and the guy from Baseball Bias, who I wrote for over the summer (but they disappared sort of, and I got lazy too so), contacted me today. Apparently, they went corporate over the offseason....so if all goes well, I'll be covering games with PRESS PASSES.

Oh, how that would be awesome!

that umbralla is too cute! Loving your layouts. Yellow sounds like a great color to scrap.

I know, what's the deal with the rain. We are already hated by other states because of all the sunshine, lol.
