Don't you think the cover is gorgeous? Courtesy of the ever talented Maggie Holmes.  Inside you will be able to find beautiful layouts, fun ideas, and cool techniques put together by the talented editors & contributing editors & Dream Team gals.

I was honored to have a bunch of pages included in this issue. This is one of my pages done as part an article I co-wrote with the lovely Lara Penrod about reusing & recycling our scrapbook leftovers.

I love tools!!
Not that I have many mind you...but I can still dream, covert (pray for me) & have a wish list a mile long!
Have you seen this little darlin'? It is called a Cutter Bee & it pierces uniform holes for you. Just like that...pop your paper onto a suitable surface & roll away!

The there is this 'Little Wonder' released at the recent CHA show in Chicago. It is the Sew Easy by We R Memory Keepers. Not only does it pierce uniform holes for you but also does so in a variety of different stitches, making hand sewing onto paper a DREAM!!

OK...Wish Fairy...are you listening? I NEED THESE!!
Thanks for stopping by.
