have you heard?

Have you heard the news???!!! My favorite scrapbook store is reopening next month! It was a sad day last February when they had to close . . . but with a lot of work and some negotiations, my smart and business savy friend Kelly is able to reopen--10,000 sqauare feet of scrapbooking yumminess!

I am busy making some samples with the new lines she recently picked up at CHA. As soon as Green Tangerines opens you can pick up the fabulous Jillibean Pasta Fagioli line . . . I just love these warm colors . . . perfect for our trip last week to the ranch! If you want to see the full line, click here.

I used a sketch out of the recent Creating Keepsakes magazine . . . the September issue, page 31.

Jillibean has some great cardstock stickers that go with this line . . . that little "button" you see and the thread is from this line. I just love the mini letters included on the sheet of stickers.

The mini letters added a little extra pop to my journaling too . . . gotta love that!

The owner is working on the opening date . . . soon the countdown will begin. I can't wait! Thanks for letting me share my excitement with you!

very cute! I won a sheet of each of Jillibean's new lines, but I don't think I got the embellishments...I know what the first thing I'm picking up at GT!

Absolutely LOVE the layout, and love your handwriting on the journaling. You should make your handwriting a font ... I definitely download it to my font list.

Love the layout. Always interesting to see different colour combos. I have been reading a few past issues of CK. The sketches are great.
