a Great mail day!

What a GREAT mail day today! Look what's been waiting for me in my mail...

PageMaps 2!! finally got it in my hand!! I've been waiting for this book for a while, I ordered it from Amazon 'cause they have the best price for this rather than buy it at M's which I can't use coupon either! So I have to wait because after Christmas this book was sold out at Amazon and they are in stock now from Jan 22, grab it now before they sold out again! Trust me you won't regret buying this book it's worth every penny! It's have a lot of inspiring layouts and cards too! (the 1st book didn't have cards sketch by the way). If you haven't got the book yet don't worry you could always visit PageMaps site where they have lots of sketch for layouts and card, and they always update the sketch every month not to forget visit their blog, they have new challenge every month(if I'm not mistaken) with lots of yummy goodies!(I've won once!)

and here's another package I got...

Echo Park Paper "Little Girl" line! Couldn't be a better day for me! I'm so HAPPY today... you can tell I'm a huge fan of Echo Park Paper! I love the colors in every collection they have, and you gonna love the patterned paper here, they are stinkin' cute! can't wait to create layout and card with this paper ooowh I'm SO excited! I'm planning to make a layout using this paper and sketch from PageMaps, I'll post  it right away when I'm done. Hope you all have a Great day!

Thanks for visiting!:)

{#2} The Paper Variety Challenge #15!

Hi everyone! Today the new challenge starting again for this year at The Paper Variety! and it's a big day for me because my first layout will be shown at The Paper Variety blog

This week challenge should be easy for everyone to try it out, here's the challenge...

and here is my layout :

The picture was taken last winter while the three of us waiting for the subway in the chilly weather (because the station located in a surface/street level so it gets chilly when we wait for the train), but my daughter always had an idea to kill time and that day she asked me to make silly face with her and my husband capture this moments. I love this picture and I think it's perfect for this challenge. I used Echo Park Paper(my favorite!) Everybody Loves Christmas and Wintertime line for this, Elle's studio vintage number and cut some snowflakes from Gypsy Wanderings cart. 

Now head over to The Paper Variety blog and join the challenge! link up your project by next Tuesday to win this amazing prize sponsored by Your Scraboook Stash
