Alphas and More

I just absolutely love the versatility of Basic Grey's Hopscotch--it seems I am using it everywhere! 
And please notice the alphas I used for the word "adores"--I saw these and become instantly obsessed with them--stalking every online store I could to find these AND finally they showed up at Two Peas.  Ahhhhhhh.....felt so relieved to finally get them!

Sweet Baby Love

I LOVED scrapping this picture.  It was not the best quality picture (I am still a bit of a spazz when it comes to my camera settings), but it was so cute and totally captured this adorable moment.
I used the add-on kit, Lollipop, from Studio Calico.  This is the first month I have worked with any of their kits and I am absolutely in love with all the paper and embellisments!!  The color palette is just delicious!  Am looking forward to seeing what they have in store for March.

Yes, I am the queen of apologies.  Wanted to share a new lo featuring Maleia.  Made this using the February kit from Paper Posies which I am LOVING!! 
I tried out my new cloud punch from Fiskars which I debated about getting forever--am so glad I took the plunge and ordered it!

February's Choice

I was so excited to see Alice Hoffman's new release, The Red Garden" when I was browsing the shop on my Nook (by the way, it is way TOO easy to buy books on the Nook). After reading summaries and reviews, I knew it was the right choice for this months.  If it anything like Hoffman's Blackbird House, which I read several years ago, than it promises to be a great read.

I have been dreaming of creating a blog forever, something to combine both my loves--reading and scrapping--as well as a place to put my English degree to use before I get so rusty that I forget how to write! LOL. 

So these are my "official" goals for my blog: 
    1.  To share my scrappy life with others.
    2.  To read one book a month (I wanted to do two but my
        procrastinating self said to start slow) and share
        my thoughts, questions, a book club style
    3.  To make myself laugh and smile everytime I log on :-)

Not too bad I think!  Well, I will be back tomorrow with my book selection for February!!

Smiles, Michelle
