Somebunny's been creative.....

Since I've been in a real scrappy mood, I wanted to share these that I finished yesterday. I used MM's Garden Party since I never put it away after I bought it. I've been keeping all the embellies & stuff in a basket & rummage through it for what I'm looking for instead of pulling out all my stuff just to find the sticker or flower that I'm looking for. It's made things flow much easier & the LO's came together faster thanks to that method I've been using. Think it also helps that I'm sticking to one mfg so there's no guessing in what goes together.

Love how this came out. Don't think you can see it but on the small pic I used my old scallop edged scissors along the edge then wrapped the ribbon next to it & used some rhinestones I had.

For the next LO I wanted to use the circle paper but of course I was trying not to cut off too much. I finally overcame my fear & was left with a good size piece I can use on another LO.

The pics aren't the best. They either came out too dark or too light but these were the best of the bunch. The colors are really pretty irl. Oh yeah & just for the record I did not lift anyone (or "copy good" as Joe says) & these are purely from me.

We've got plans today to take my cousin to this HUGE mall in NY. He wanted to go to the Bronx Zoo but it's so windy here & my kids are still sick to be outside so we compromised & he'll get to browse 4 floors of shopping utopia! Too bad he's not a girl!

Edited to Add: Plans got changed--the usual when it comes to plans with my family. My couisin wanted to go back into NYC again since it was his last day here. We opted instead to take him out to dinner to "Romano's Macaroni Grill". The food was good & we had a good time. Turns out that my couisin is seriously considering moving here & is planning on coming back in Sept with with wife. I couldn't imagine leaving the Riveria were he lives. Nevermind leaving the country to move somewhere he doesn't speak the language. My parents did it too with 2 little kids (my older sister & I) & for that I'm grateful since I was given the chance to grow up here. Maybe someday I'll work up the nerve to move to another state like FL. like Joe wants to!

Oh, those layouts are gorgeous. I love the MM Garden Party but I don't have any girls to scrapbook for! I still am going to purchase it to make cards. Thanks for the share.
