Celebrating Crate Paper

I was cropping with some friends at the beginning of May and to make packing light, I just brought the Brook and Paper Dolls collections with me. I had great fun with the playful die cuts and great stickers that came along with the kits. I absolutely love these yellow American Crafts Dear Lizzy Thickers. I think they go perfectly with the Brook collection. Crate Paper has an awesome DT call out right now for all you interested girls. I would totally be interested if I didn't have my hands full already! I was however really excited to stumble across this post on the Crate blog recently!!!

Bounce: Larissa enjoying her 'new to her' trampoline last fall. I was just waiting for some fun and playful pattern paper to go along with these photos and I was quite pleased at how well the Brook papers worked for this.
I spent a good amount of time fussy cutting that branch/twiggy thing from the pattern paper. I attached Kaisercraft pearls to some of the branches for a little added dimension.

There she goes: my big girl got herself all dressed up and ready to move away. She told me that she was off to the big city to get a job. She also told me that she was going to make her own lunch everyday and it was going to have popsicle in it and she was going to eat the popsicle first, before her healthy stuff :D

Pictou, NS: Every summer we make sure to get at least ferry ride back to PEI . We usually stop in Pictou on the way to take a walk around the waterfront front, check out the local tall ship, visit some merchants and most importantly, get an ice cream cone ;)

Thanks for visiting today!
