A New Layout

I wanted to post the layout I made using one of the little beaded flowers purchased from BeadFloraJewels on Etsy. Here it is !! This is my beautiful grandmother when she was young. She is still beautiful as well, inside and out. The beaded flower in the center of the big pink bloom really pops ! If you don't mind lumpy bumpy pages, I really recommend a beaded flower as a great embellishment.

Some fun stuff.....and chances to win something !!

First off... it's National Scrapbook Day on Saturday, May 3rd !! If you're a scrapbooker or even just interested in scrapbooking please check out the online crop going on right now at Scrap Attack Scrapbooking. As always, there are wonderful prizes to be given away and great promotions in the store. Plus, the ladies on the message board are so friendly and nice and Lauri, the owner, is diligent about keeping it a wonderful place to hang out.

Second, I am late posting these but here are my newest acquired Etsy goodies:

Aren't these just the most adorable little beaded flowers !! BeadFloraJewels makes amazing beaded floral masterpieces and I had to snag up a couple to use on a scrapbook layout. (I'll post the layout when it's done.) I really think they'll add some great focal interest and unique texture.

I also received this adorable little necklace from Goldstar Designs. It's such a happy necklace !! She also makes cute little zippered pouches and wristlets, perfect for holding your iPod, cell phone and some spending money. :) Shameless plug for myself also --- I am featured on her blog, check it out !!

And lastly, who doesn't enjoy a chance to win some great stuff ? I stumbled onto a promotion that the Etsy Homefront Street Team (military spouses and moms) is having on their blog. It's called the May Day Giveaway and they are being very generous in their prizes. Gorgeous jewelry, hair accessories, photography and much more are being given away. I'm going to risk sounding like someone else and say... it's a good thing !

Happy Scrapbooking and Happy Weekending !!!
