I am the March Guest Designer at Cherry Blossom Studio!

Hey!  Someone out there likes my scrappin' enough to ask me to design for them...well, only enough to have me create layouts for 1 month.  But heck, I am honored and super thrilled!  You can see the announcement on their BLOG.

Cherry Blossom Studio is my friendly neighborhood scrapbooking store.  They sell the latest and greatest goodies, offer great classes in scrapbooking, photography and even Photoshop!  Plus, they have HUGE scraproom that you can meet up with your pals in an scrap the day away!

Here are some layouts I got to create for them to display in the store:

First up, some layouts using the new Stella and Rose collection from My Minds Eye.  This was my favorite collection to work with and those doily stamps are to die for!!!!

My Minds Eye also came out with the Sunshine Day line that I did a few layouts for.

Here's one using the Peep line from We R Memory Keepers.  So cute!

Here's another Easter layout using the "Some Bunny Loves You" line from Reminisce.  I used the name of the line for my title!

Here are a few more layouts using products from Reminisce.  Are those monkeys not the CUTEST????

Caution.  The next 2 layouts include picture of me back in 1993.  Please don't leave comments in which you ridicule me for my big hair.  I've punished myself enough in the past 18 years!!!

And finally, a layout using the School Spirit collection from Crate Paper (one of my fave manufacturers).

I also made a display board using the totally gorg-waaaa "Gabrielle" line from Bo Bunny.   But, alas I could not scan it so I can't share with you here but you can go see it at Cherry Blossom Studio!  It is gorgeous and all you need to do is follow so super simple instructions.  If you aren't as in to scrapping as I am you can use this kit to make a beautiful (and personal) home decor piece for your home or a a gift.  Here is the link to it on the Bo Bunny site if you want to check it out.

OK - I know that was a LOT of  layouts I just threw down on y'all.  Thanks for stopping by and sticking through the whole post!

    I am in love w/ all your layouts, everytime I picked out a fav I would scroll down and find another! I honestly can't pick a fav cuz they are all so wonderful! BTW I graduate in '93as well and your hair is not nearly as big as some of the girls I graduated with! :0)
