TESC 117 - Thank you

Happy Friday everyone! Hope you had a wonderful week! I'm happy to share with you some new goodies that I have recently somehow acquired. *grin* Last weekend I got to go to the Great American Scrapbooking Convention over in Arlington. I literally, drove up, shopped, and drove right back. It took pretty much the full day but I think it was worth it! I got to see Tim Holtz, Melissa Frances, and the owner of Crafty Secrets...boy was I starstruck! Needless to say, I stocked up on a lot of my favorite products I've been eying online, but have never seen in person. I bought a LOT of Melissa Frances, and quite a bit of Crafty Secrets, and threw in some Maya Road for good measure. :)

Anyway, here is the sketch for this week...I sure do hope you get a chance to play!


And me playing with some of my new "toys." :)


Ok...I HAD to use something sorely neglected...and that was some of my gorgeous SEI Claire papers that I won over on the SEI blog a while back. :) Everything is pretty brand new! Oh...ok, those white buttons are definitely NOT new. I got a nice surprise package in the mail that literally weighed a TON. Could you believe, my mother-in-law mailed me 2 huge jars of buttons from her grandmother and her in-law's mother. WOW! The thread in those buttons are from the original clothing it was on...OLD STUFF! I'm happy to have a TON of vintage buttons on hand now!


I stamped the "Thank You" with my new Technique Tuesday set that I bought at the Convention. I'd been eying that one a while too. :) My main image is from Crafty Secrets, the covered chipboard button is from Maya Road, pretty flourish came from Pink Paislee, and my flower was cut from Pattern paper. WHEW! I can't wait to play with some more of the goodies...I just hope I can do them justice! :)

Hope you have a great weekend and be sure to stop by the rest of the Sketch Crew's blogs to see what they've done!
