Beautiful Things.

1. The fact that today is over. Goodness. It's been a long, crazy, nervous day. Thank goodness everything is done. Yay!

2. I made this card last night. The creative process is beautiful.
I stamped the Hero Arts Silly Scape stamp on three different Crate Paper Restoration collection papers and pieced them together. I love the texture that technique gives.
Supplies: Cardstock- Papertrey Ink (Kraft and Vintage Cream), Patterned Paper- Crate Paper (Restoration collection 6 x 6 pad), Punches- Fiskars (Large and XL Cloud), Stamps- Hero Arts (K5425 Silly Scape) and Papertrey Ink (Fillable Frames #10), Ink- Tsukineko (Memento Black), Marker- Copic (Black).

3. This girl. We've finally named her! Welcome Trixie "the Slaughterer" Lewiniski:
Yeah, it was an effort of compromise. The girls wanted Trixie, but the boys didn't want it to be too girly... hence, "The Slaughterer". I kid you not! Hahahaha.

4. Roommate moments. Tonight was a crazy night full of grocery mishaps and too many cooks in the kitchen, but it was all worth it for the moment later tonight. Greg baked a cake to help celebrate my birthday and decided to use all 36 candles on hand to spell out my name instead of remembering that, traditionally, you put as many candles as years old you're turning. This picture really tells the whole story.... Me looking at Greg with a confused look and Joe trying to read the candles. Classic. I love this.
 The attempted "Britta"... can you see it? Hehe.
5. New scrappy supplies. I made this haul video last night (a.k.a. before we named the kitty) showing my recent Papertrey Ink order and a few things I picked up over the last week. Check it out here or on YouTube: *Note- I just uploaded it at 11:30 PM CST, so it might take a few minutes to process still.*
