A Little Bird Told Me...

So, this is the last week for the 
Seasonal Expressions.
That means we are saying good-bye to some amazing paper packets.
This week I will share the rest of my 
Some Kinda Wonderful projects.
You can find the supplies HERE.
I created the background paper by stamping those cute critters and then coloring them in with markers and colored pencils.

This is the Some Kinda Wonderful Cardmaking stamp set.
It's lots of fun.

Scrappy Saturday

I am back today with a simple, little layout using a variety
of papers and CTMH complements.
Sorry, I have been MIA.
My new laptop starting having problems and it eventually shut down and I couldn't even get power.  Boo hoo.
 Had to sent it in.  Hubby is letting me use his but I am starting from scratch with photos and editing so I probably won't be back to full blog schedules until I get my laptop back.
Thanks for your patience and hanging in there.
I hope you'll continue to drop by "the bungalow".
Have a great weekend.
It is such a beautiful Spring in Indiana.
A bit cool today, but the sun is shining and that makes me happy!
Thanks for the visit.

Some Kinda Wonderful Week

Since we featured 
on our blog hop this weekend
I thought I would just continue the theme through the week.
Here's a fun congrats card.
I combined these two stamp sets that coordinate with the
Some Kinda Wonderful papers.

and now for the
Some Kinda Wonderful Scrapbooking Set

Even though it is labeled "scrapbooking", it is great for cards.
I will be sharing more cards, created with these two stamp sets all week.
Have a wonderful week!

Rose Blossom Blog Hop

Hello and happy Easter weekend to you!
It's time for another Rose Blossom Team Blog Hop.
This month, we bring to you the fun, colorful line
Some Kinda Wonderful.
The hop starts at our lovely leader,
Brenda's blog Rose Blossom Legacies.
You can find the complete list there or just follow the links from here and end up there.
Either way, it is sure to be an eye-catching trip through blog land.
I created two crossover cards using a variety of the patterned papers.

I used a lot of stickers and bits from the 
Some Kinda Wonderful Complements 
with the coordinating Black and White Enamel Dots.
Here's a look at the removable tags.

Aren't those critters adorable?
Here's a look at the back where there is room to write a message.
This collection is so fun and whimsical.
I cannot wait to see what the other Rose Blossoms created because the sneak peeks were awesome.
Hop on over to Marg's blog at 
I Didn't Have Potatoes
to see what's sprouting in the Tater Patch!
Thanks for the visit.

Spring Launch Event

Sharing my "Scrappy Saturday" on Friday this week because
we are doing a team blog hop tomorrow.
Close To My Heart hosts Spring and Fall events to launch new seasonal products and catalogs.
This year, and last, the event just so happened to be on the Saturday that started my
Spring Break.
My awesome hubby offered to drive me, 4 hours, to Detroit for the event.
It makes for a sweet, little getaway for us too.
This year I got to be a designated helper.
I got products early and got to make the creative projects.
Then we would walk around to show our examples and help other consultants if they had questions.
This selfie is me with Sheena from Home Office.  She's a sweetie and did a great job presenting and getting us excited about the new products.
So much fun!
In about two weeks, May 1, I can begin sharing with you all.
Can't wait!
For this layout I used the Springtime Complements.
They go great with the Whimsy Fundamentals, which I highlighted all week but here I used them with paper from the Basic Fundamentals.
I love the way all our lines can mix and match so easily.
Have a good start to the weekend.
See ya at the hop tomorrow!
