I need a 12x12 step program.....

lolol Didn't I just say I was "good" on sb stuff for now? Didn't I just say I wasn't going to shop for a bit? No, I didn' can't prove it!! :D I put in this order at Emma's Paperie sometime last week. I was perusing galleries/blogs and came across the sweetest looking page on Melissa Frances' blog. It was a page done by Sherelle Christiansen and the papers were just LOVERLY! They were the Melissa Frances Fresh Twist papers...not sure of the name because my invoice said FRENCH...the packaging said FRESH. I also got a whole bunch of Jenni Bowlin diecut papers and some of those journal stickers that I just LOVE! Either way, I bought all these wonderful goodies at Emma's Paperie which I have ordered from many times before. They always take such care to wrap your packages all pretty like with colored tissue papers and include a sweet treat with your order like chocolates or some hard candy. This time though I was pleasantly surprised to find a roll of American Crafts ribbon tied to my package with some bright pink raffia! YAY..bonus!! So nice...they have excellent customer service, awesome variety of products, great prices...check them out if you haven't already. Oh, and SUPER fast my package in THREE days from when I placed my order :)

I also did a few pages this week. The first was kind of "eh" in my opinion..didn't LOVE it, but it was my first for the week and I was just getting my mojo going. I really wanted to document this "ritual" that Mikey and I have before he goes to bed at night. I'm trying to do that do pages with journaling about things I want the kids to remember. The other two, one was about myself and some things I just can't live without...other than my family. And the last one, was a lift off of the Melissa Frances blog using some of those new papers I got. I really LOVE the way that one turned out! I love that pic of Mikey wearing one of Lij's hats! Anyway, that's all for now :)
