Nana Says "....."

Hello There,

First off...Laura from Hamilton...I need your e-mail address to respond to send the directions...the scrapbook store in Toronto is Scrapbooks by Design.
Since Monday I've been battling a headache. I think it's just the excitement and stress about going to Toronto. I'm taking the two cats so that makes things a little more challenging. But once they get there they will be so loved. I'm so looking forward to seeing Kristen and doing some fun things with her. I'm taking my rain coat just in case the weather doesn't want to co-operate. a few sprinkles won't stop us!
Look I got another page done. This one took less than 24 hours. lol I used my cricut for the font and the cute little pea pod in the corner. The small words I typed on the computer and punched out with my word window punch. The chip board pieces were left over from another project I did. The color was just right. Pattern paper is from Chloe's Closet line from Making Memories. I got that from The Cutting Garden. There's all sorts of great papers in that line.

I'm enjoying being able to use some brighter colors and patterns. Lime green was just never my color!

Don't know if I'll have any postings for the next week. I may just drop in to tell you what I've been up to or if we get some good photos maybe I'll just share the pics. I could take pics of the scrapbook stores I get to or pics if I purchase anything. That will be unlikely that I'll puchase anything considering my will power and all. NOT!

Have a good week...I know I will.
