Happy Chocolate Egg Weekend!

Okay, so I'm a little late....but Happy Easter to everyone! I'm not so religious myself, but I do love to celebrate the chocolate North-American invented version of Easter...=) yum! Also, have to say..I am totally missing my family this weekend....they all had Easter dinner at my grandma's, and Z and I are the only ones who live far away...*sniff*...But it turned out okay cuz the Easter bunny stopped by my house and left me little chocolate eggs all over...yay! I have the best hubby...eerr...Easter bunny ever! Speaking of, Z shaved off all of his hair the other day..I'm still getting used to no moustache! We did a lot of lounging like this yesterday... And Z found a lovely old suitcase (which I always swoon over in antique stores) behind our building so we adopted it....the label on the top says it's a ladies trunk from 1965...=) lovely! We have nowhere to put it, though....lol...seriously. Not a spare inch...so we might just put it back outside after we've loved it for a few days..hopefully we can squish it somewhere!!I didn't do much scrapping this weekend...well, I did finish up some quick things I can't post just yet....so excited for my kits to come so I can play!! =) But it's been nice, taking a lil break...I got some sewing done yesterday, so there will be another polaroid up for sale soon, too! They're so fun to make...=) I did get this little custom order card finished up yesterday:
And I was asked by Elle to do a cute little Year-in-Review mini book for Elle's Studio using her new chipboard albums...check em out!! They are sooo cute and little! I covered the back and front of each page, and so far January, February and March are done...just a few pictures from each month and the happy times I want to remember from them...=)
Stay tuned for how I aged the chipboard....and if you haven't signed up for Elle's newsletter, you should!! he he...=) So fun!


Thanks for bearing with the multi-picture post if you're still reading...lol...I also wanted to thank the lovely Amy over at The Peach Tree for featuring my lil Etsy, Bubbly Shnooks, on her blog yesterday! She sent me the funnest questionnaire, she rocks!! =) Go show her some love and also take a peek at the fun shops she has linked up!! yay, Etsy! I am seriously an addict...lol

Whew! This weekend just flew by...today Z and I took advantage of the sunny day and spent a good hour or two walking around with our feet in the surf, poking at clam shells and crab bits and loving the sunny day!! Hope everyone had a fab weekend!! Who's excited about the Hills premiere? Anyone? An hour and 20 minutes til I'm in Hills heaven...whee!

Love the mini album - you are doing a great job. Also, love - love - love the suitcase. So if you and Z can't find a home for it, tuck it under the bed and please drop it at our house when you come in the summer. I will keep it safe until you have a bigger home!! hee hee
Absolutely love it!!
Mom (are you surprised)

metrochic said...

you already know i love your mini but that card! OMG. so cute!

Jodie said...

ahhhh that trunk is the best.
seriously if u dont keep it that is so sad, those are worth SO MUCH here at the antique shops, so much that i cringe at the thought of you throwing it out and notmaking room!
i saw a "gentlemans" version on antiques road show once, not sure if u seen that show but it was worth a stack!
hehe

i looove ur work, but you know this.

i have a package going postal shortly for the kittyrobot buttons, i know its been said before but things are flat out here.

I saw this post before. I can't believe I didn't comment. The Elle's book is beautiful, as always! You always make me want everything you use! I suppose thats the idea from Elle's perspective. :D Love the picture of Z. Happy belated Easter.
