Sharing some more love of Jillibean Soup and some Scrapbook Nook Deals

In case you hadn't noticed I love Jillibean Soup scrapbooking products. The lines are so fun and each collection works really well with the others, hugely increasing the scrapping possibilities.

Since I don't have my March kit from My Scrapbook Nook yet (I can't wait to play with the new Pink Paislee Bayberry Cottage!!!) and because I am done at Color Me Daisy (unless I get to be a guest designer for one of Michelle's limited kits- the first one comes out in April) I have had some extra time to do some layouts just for me.

Today I made a page using a mix of lines once again and really liked the outcome, and making all of those little flowers was kinda fun, too, not to mention these cute pics of Sarah I had to work with. This poor girl has had quite a time the last few days with a bad cough/cold and today she was pretty miserable and grumpy (and me by extension), so these pictures are a nice reminder of the Sarah we know and love.

In case anyone wonders, I used a die-cut sheet from the Pink Paislee Cupid collection for the scalloped brown paper on this page and I outlined the title alpha stickers with a brown Sharpie to help the title stand out a little bit better. I apologize for the slight crookedness of the pic in advance. And, is it my screen or does this green look a little funny? Well, you get the idea. I really like the mix of colors on this page, quite representative of Sarah's colorful personality. She was quite a trooper to pose for these pics for me a couple of weeks ago.

Here's a close-up of some of those little flowers- I used my EK Success flower and scalloped circle/circle punches, wrinkled them up, inked the edges, added some faux stitching to some and then added the buttons and some Prima pearls on some of the flowers. 

Isn't she a cutie? I think so. Have a great night!!!

p.s. I'm baaaaaaaaaaaaack!

Leah just let us know about some fabulous deals going on at My Scrapbook Nook right now so I thought I'd fill you in on the details. 

First of all, there are only a few February kits left and those will be given -for free- to those who sign up for a new one-year kit club membership. What a deal!! You can sign up by clicking on this link
And, when you sign up for a year membership your 13th kit is FREE!!! So, you get two kits for free! 

And, membership to the Nook kit club truly has its privileges. Do you remember how a while back I told you about special deals that will be available only to members of the club? Well, the special deal for March is Pink Paislee's new collection, Queen Bee. Here is what you'll get: 

2 sheets of each patterned paper in the Queen Bee collection
2 sheets of the die-cut paper
1 sheet of punch-outs and the ribbon pleats. 

All for just $9.06, which is 40% off the price of retail. That is SUCH a deal, but is only available for kit club members, so hurry and sign-up to get yours today!! 

UPDATE: Wow, those went fast. All of the Pink Paislee Queen Bee kits have sold out. I'll let you know if Pam orders more for the store. 

Fun News: This layout above is right now as I type this the #6 top viewed, top liked layouts and is the #2 spot for most bookmarked layouts on 2 Peas in the last 24 hours. Yay!!!

Seriously Becky, you have no idea how many of your layouts I have saved in my "lifts" file. This is another one. It makes me happy just looking at it. I ♥ flowers, and often have them on my layouts. I sincerely hope you get the position at Jillibean - they need you girl!!!
