playing with a new toy - urrr. tool

I made a decision recently to invest in a couple of diecut machines. I looked around for a long time and compared prices, and available shapes, and finally made the purchase that I thought was right for me. ^_^

I got a chance to play the other night! I know this is sort of a classic look, but to me, it never gets old.

{Look for this layout in the February 2011 issue of Scrapbook Trends!}

I had fun playing with my sassafras goodies!

{The flowers in this detail shot were cut with the cuttlebug using the tim holtz floral die...}

And of course you can't forget the burlap buttons from Nikki Sivils!

And I spent my entire afternoon yesterday priming the boys' bedroom to get ready for the red paint that I'll be  putting on in a few minutes! {perfectionist much? lol}

Happy Friday!!
