Hello there! I promise I had AMAZING, grand intentions about posting this yesterday. I had the post allll ready to go and when I hit "Publish"....uh yeah don't know what happened! But the post was not there and I was too annoyed to re do it all lol! But today is a new day and I am ready to sit down and do it again! 

Yesterday was busy. DCWV office, eyelash appointment, nail appointment...all this effort to look cute for the camera ;) I am off to film for the rest of the week so today is "pack-catch up on email day". But I am excited to head off and see my friends in Ohio & Texas. 

Since I posted my family picture last week, I have been getting email wondering about how we got our rescue dog, Foxy! Well....my co-workers can vouch on this, it is QUITE an amazing story which deserves it's own post. So look for that as soon as I get home from my trip. 


Gotta share this picture tho-my 5 year old looked at me and said, "We look alike, don't we Mom." I died and had to take a picture. He was dead serious!! Foxy is an angel doggy and we love her!


I have a couple gorgeous pages to show you today. This first one uses the "Nana's Nursery Baby Girl Stack. This cute stack has been out for a few years and I still see it pop up on projects all of the time. I love how classy it is. The colors and patterns are pretty timeless! I love it when our stacks stand the test of time and are still great YEARS after they are out. Not all companies can say that in my opinion.


Darling pinwheel....


Adorable rosette. I love this page...if only I had a cute little girl of my own to put on this page ;)


This fun page uses the Shimmer Stack which is our shimmery, smooth cardstock. I wish you could see this page in person, the photo doesn't give the shimmer paper it's rightful justice :)


I love these flowers. They are just circles that are scored around the edges and folded to give them that slight demision. So easy, break out those circle punches!


We have 2 winners from last week's blog posts! Don't forget to keep the conversation going and take a minute to write a blog comment. I love reading ALL of them and I promise I do!! Email me your address and I will get your prizes sent out to you {erinmadsen@diecutsinc.com}

Congrats to:

Those cookies are to beautiful to eat! LOVE the stack that inspired them!
AND

Beautiful family! Love those LOs, the sun rays on the superman page are awesome!



 Thanks for stopping by! Have a wonderful day :)

    Wow, 'love this post as always! The layouts are truly beautiful. Oh, I was reading the post to my daughter and as I was reading it....I said the same thing that you did before I even read it....GORGEOUS!!

    Erin, how right you are about your stacks standing the test of time. My stacks will prove it, wink!

    Oh, by the way, my daughter volunteers if you would like to do a layout of her....since you have those cutie boys.

    Have a wonderful time with your friends. We will be thinking of you!!

  15. Sweet baby girl layout, love it. You're right Erin, the pic does no do justice to your Shimmer stack which is FANTASTIC! One of the best - you can use it as a glam background, die cut it for accents, punch cool borders... I have used every little tiny scarp of it and it is great. By the way, how do I let you guys know when I pin one of the projects (which I do all the time...)

  18. Very nice layouts! Love the picture of your son and dog. Can't wait to hear the story of how you got her. What breed is she? We have a border collie mixed with something that made him huge, but he looks a lot like Foxy.

  41. I know I live a sheltered life... but ....Eyelash Appointment? Ok, moving on. Love the little girl layout. Does DCWV still print that paper? How long to they print paper. Of course if it doesn't sell well they wouldn't reprint. But I wonder about the older stacks.
    Congrats to the winners. Hugs, Jess

  45. Love all the details in those two pages, and you are so right: DCWV stacks are TIMELESS in more ways than one! That's why we use them so much! So what do they DO at an eyelash appt? I had to read that twice to make sure I read it right----LOL!!!
    Have a great time on your trip, and I'll be waiting for the rescue story!
