everything old is new again

Remember my ode to Erin Lincoln and her new book, Supply Savvy, a few weeks back? Since I read it, I really do look at my stash in a whole new way. Really!

So you can imagine how excited I was when I checked out the new Garden on Two Peas today - the theme is Old Is New!! I was so happy! This is definitely one of my favorite Gardens in a while. My two favorite scrappers - Jackie and Lisa McGarvey both have layouts in it along with some of my other favorites like Rhonda Bonifay and Jamie Waters. Oh and I have to say it was a good day for 8.5x11 scrappers because Jennifer Johner scrapped the smaller size this month! Woo-hoo! If you haven't seen it yet - check it out here. (Click the names of those I mentioned to see their individual garden galleries.)

Here's a layout I did this week using new Chester paper by MAMBI and some REALLY old Making Memories letters. I must say I love how it turned out. I think it's the first time I've scrapped Caroline's paternal Grandmother. The blues totally match in real person. Like totally dude. I hate it when the scanner makes me look color blind. :)

I have another layout to share tomorrow.

Hey...stay cool.

I want that paper!!!

And I have like 15 packages of those MM metal letters...I think bought so many of 'em because they were 1/2 off at Hobby Lobby and now they're just sitting pretty in the original packaging, not being used......until Erin's book arrived this weekend!
