Out with the old...

The amount of gorgeous, must-have scrappy goodies introduced at this winter's CHA was overwhelming! I promised myself that I would use up/throw out/give away a bunch of older kits and supplies in my room before ordering  opening the boxes I ordered and diving in.

I brought two huge boxes of older stuff, mostly Creative Memories from back in the day and hundreds of borders from border swaps I used to do, to a Stop-and-Swap at our church. One woman took home the entire box of borders and was thrilled! I am so happy they went to a good home :) I came home with nothing - yay me!!

These two layouts are from my second Studio Calico kit, Apple Orchard. I used SC's doily stamps and embossed them on the first layout.

You have to know Max to know that the caramel lemon is just so him! He is the worst eater ever and refuses to try most things. But then he goes and eats the weirdest stuff! Let it be known that I did NOT force the lemon on him. I offered other fruits that I thought might be good with caramel. HE chose the lemon. I'm anxious to see what next fall's annual caramel apple making will bring.

And now, I've been so good, I think I'll go rip open all my new Mister Huey's and SC Fabrips!
