Memories, anyhow....

Some O-L-D summer memories, recycled with a well-loved embellishment box, turned curio:

It's a blinged-out face lift, on some DEAR little summer-time faces and happy memories of
summer activities. Back at our lovely Montessori School that created the foundation of my
wee-one's learning.... Back when they would wear what I put out for them, play TOGETHER,
without whining, wear their hair the way MOTHER styled it ... and the living was ... easy...

My creative mojo was DRENCHED in the light of Want2Scrap's NEW Nestabling
and a bounty of free-floaters {!} from the regular BLING department! {Check IT!}
You'll be GLAD you did! I'm learning that the MORE I love the project,
the more I love (and need!) the BLING!

If dressing up YOUR summer memories sounds like a MUST to you, I hope
you'll click your way on over to my full post on the EVER so busy and
bling-a-licious Want2Scrap blog {we're up to 20 plus posts a month, over there!}
and get the rest of my blinged-out details! I hope you will! {And don't forget to
leave some love so they know I'm your BLINGY enabler! LOL!}

If you're left with a little drool on the keyboard from gawking at my LOVELY
brand - spankin' - new PAPER, compliments of the super talented Nikki Sivils...

You're NOT the only one! Aunty Cow, nearly thought it was her LUNCH!

{It's THAT yummy!}

And now, I have to gush, because there is some exciting pairing and planning
going on between Want2Scrap, Nikki and a WHOLE host of others, that you'll
be seeing sooooooooon! For now, all I can do is {*hoard!*} bow, smile and grin...
AND BE VERY, VERY grateful to the generosity of Madame Sivils, and members
of MY creative Want2Scrap team, for creating and cementing some WONDERFUL
alliances for current and FUTURE endeavors! {Thanks, Terre!}
Stay tuned for the GOODNESS!

I'm SO gad you stopped by! Thanks for letting me show you da-BLING!
