So my mind has been a bit scattered recently and I thought I was completing an American Crafts assignment by doing this page with Details.

Um, turns out after I made the entire page, I looked at the email and it was supposed to be made with Delights. Oops. In any case, the layout uses mostly Margarita goodies, and there's a giveaway of the entire collection on the AC blog. You only have until tomorrow morning to enter though!

Today I had the fun opportunity to crop with a group of ladies at our last remaining local scrapbook store, Sonja's Scrapbook Spot. Really enjoyed chatting with everyone and joking about how we often ask ourselves, "Do I need this?" when trying to justify a new craft purchase. Sonja was so sweet to open her doors (and bring in Starbucks coffee), and we enjoyed creating most of the day away.

Kim and I got to catch up, have some sushi for lunch, and snap a fun pocketbooth strip.
Finally I had a chance to play with some evalicious goodies:

We're already in talks for the next get together, so if you're a local scrapbooker and want to be included, let us know. As nice as it is to be so easily connected online - with people and with online stores, I was reminded again today how it's equally important to support local small businesses. Grateful to have a space to meet up with other creatives in the scrapbook world living on the westside.

And I managed to finish a few layouts including the one with the assignment for American Crafts using Delights. yay
