Girl's Day

Today's page is one of my new favorites. Not just because I love the colors and products I used, but because it documents a really fun afternoon I had a couple of weeks ago. Cindy, from Emma's Paperie, lives fairly near my brother in Virginia. So, when we went down to visit him for the weekend, I met up with her for an afternoon of antiquing! We had soooooooooooo much fun, and the places were amazing!



This page is based on Color Combos Galore #157. I wasn't sure about the colors at first, but I really like how it turned out. I don't usually do a whole lot of black on my pages, but I think Im going to start doing more!



I dug into my stash and used the velvet DCWV paper for the background. And the butterflies and polka dot strip are Heidi Swapp transparencies.




The chipboard, flowers and pink paper are all Prima.




Here's the place where we took the pics. I was in heaven! It's called On A Whim.



And then we hit the Lucketts Store. Truly an amazing place.


I took a ton of fun pics, but am having trouble uploading them for some reason. I could do it at the photo store, just not at home...

I need to get back with a truck. I was only able to buy a few little things this time. It's a good thing this place is almost 3 hours away, or I'd be broke.

Well, that's all for today. Thanks for stopping by!!!
