Festival of Books

    I had planned on sharing a mini album with you today. . .but the sun won't come out in 'sunny California'  :(   I'll snap some shots and post it as soon as it does -promise. :) 
   Here is one of the LO's I do have photographed and ready to share.
  I have to confess. . .I wanted the new Jillibean Soup product soooo bad when it came out that I was on the prowl.  The first items I found were the 6X6 pads. . .which was completely unexpected. . .I hadn't seen Jillibean in a 6X6 before. . .I *LOVE* THEM!  I am soooo glad that they are making this size now. . .I am constantly sampling lines this way and making 12X12 purchases of my faves later.
 I used papers from Blossom SoupDutch Mustard  to piece together these die-cut ric-rac strips.  I love these papers together.
 I didn't plan on the messy stitching on this upside down tag. . .but I do like the way it turned out.
 Here you can see some of the free-style machine stitching . . .
 . . .and details of all the layers, texture, stamping etc. found along the top.
 The event was held at UCLA (beautiful campus) so I added this tag (love this tag punch I just got too).
  The 'W's' are for our last name, the '4' for the four in attendance that day (B was at work), and of course lots of stars-dots-butterflies & hearts.
