A quiet night of podcasts and blogging

This past weekend was busy with scrapbooking, chambord mimosas, pineapple upside down martinis and amazing food.  Mmmmm.  I am now chilling while listening to some TBTL.  Rowr.  I love this podcast - the hosts are from my generation, discuss modern events, with short tangents along memory lane of growing up and it is local to Seattle.  Oh, and they freely make fun of celebrities.  My FAVORITE is the sound clip of Joquin Phoenix saying: ..."...it's difficult for me to cannote my artism..."  Video clip...I think he is super strung out.  Artism: Art done by those with autism. 

OMG, go to google and lookup "aye aye".  What the heck?????????

Oh, and am going to checkout Radio Lab - have you heard of it?  I like science talks and these seem to have some humor added, so I think it will be a win.   

So, I scrapped mostly out of my Studio Calico kits.  I.love.them.a.lot.  And my new punches!!! Here are the layouts from the weekend (BTW, I'm having a terrible time uploading images...very frustrating):

I LOVE the alpha stamps from Studio Calico.  I think I used them on each layout.  And how about those fabric flowers?  From the AC tutorial by Elizabeth Kartcher.

Okay, how about THIS beauty?  A pure scraplift of Kelly Purkey in the April Scrap trends.  My absolute favorite layout at this time.  Oh, and it is my first 8.5 x 11 page - which I really enjoyed creating. 

Another layout using my favorite alpha stamps and fabric flowers!  Oh, and the wood circles are SO fun to use.

I love the colors in this layout - it is a lift of Carina Lindholm, also in April's Scrapbook trends.  I am going to use this lift again because it seems to be a great way to use scraps and border punches. :D
