New Goodies

Yay! We have new goodies in the house. We received 2 new releases from We R Memory Keepers...Peep & Family Tradition. I think I'm a little partial to "Peep". Are you surprised? hehe.
We also received 2 new releases from Jillibean..Dry Mustard Soup & Chilled Strawberry Soup. I really like both of them. There is something about the kraft background that attracts me. Stop by and see for yourself...which one is your favorite?

You'll be using Tattered Angels Glimmer mists, buttons, brads, flowers, stamps, Glossy Accents - these pages have it all! Not only will you finish 4 pages tonight, you’ll receive “page maps” of these layouts so you can re-create them with your choice of papers and subjects.
