Hey all I am gearing up for convention and some amazing new CTMH products.  COnvention is literally one of my favorite times of the year and its in one of my favorite places in the world…Disney World!  Eeck!  I know I should feel guilty going without the kids but…I DON’T.  I cant imagine leisurely strolling through Disney!

Here is a video to hold you over until the amazingness of Convention takes over.

Ill be seeing you from the Happiest Place on Earth

Scrap Limbo

SO my scrapbook room is still under construction and I am so displaced and disorganized it isn’t even funny.  I am going through papercut with draws!  I am hoping that it will be done in a week or so and I can get club and scrap nights back up and running.  Yall are going to love the new space and I cant wait to share it with you!  In the mean time I have been trying to keep up to date with my photos and events with Studio J.  ctmh_cruise_-_1

no_limits_-_1I have loved playing with Studio J since the recent update.  Did you know that you now can add photos to a layout?  In fact now, you can create a layout from scratch.  Its so much fun.  I also love that I can print my favorite pictures off at just the perfect sizes that I need.photos_-_1

These are our recent family photos and yes I know I printed two of the same photo but I already have the perfect layout designed for these and I have a 5×7 frame that needs to be filled so I killed two birds with one stone!  This layout will cost me $6.95 but I am getting $9.00 worth of pictures here.  Thats a great deal and I am getting sizes that I otherwise wouldn’t be able to print!  Give Studio J  a try here you are going to love it!

Scrapbook Generation Blog Hop

Welcome to the SG Blog Hop for June, if this is your first stop, you might like to start at the Scrapbook Generation blog and then hop through each link. Here is the list in case you get lost
Scrapbook Generation blog –
Each blog will share a project using one of the SG sketches as a starting point. You can find the sketches in their books and downloads in the SG store, and there is a free one every month in case you wanted to try it out.
Buzz and bumble I chose to combine one of my favorite layouts (#19) out of the new Scrapbook Generation Sketch Fusion with Simple Stories, and my favorite products from Close to My Heart.  This is the New Buzz and Bumble paper and Stickers.  I love how many photos fit on the this layout.  I love the colors in this paper and the Bees are just so cute.
Buzz and Bumble 292 is not to shabby and I loved catching these sweet moments from my grandmothers birthday.  I also love all the sweet little embellishments and stickers.  I think this layout came together nicely.  CTMH and SG seem to make for beautiful layouts when paired together
Next on the hop is Wanda at  Leave a comment on each blog and one lucky commenter will receive a free sketch bundle of their choice from the store.  The winner will be drawn June 10th so you have a week to comment.
