Jen + Jenni = one sweet layout!

Here's another way to use the products over at!  I used Jenni Bowlin patterned paper downloaded from with a new Jen Martakis template.  I LOVE that you can download all the digi papers you want from ScrapHD to use anyway you want. Such a great way to use the site.

I used  Jenni's Drawing Paper for the background, and her Cabbage Flower and Red Bookprint for the accents in Jen's template to make this:

Two of my nieces. Can't believe the older one is graduating HS this year. Love them.

Also used digi paint splats and stitching from Katie Pertiet.  The 3-D stuff are Jenni Bowlin scalloped notecards, chipboard buttons, memo books, embellished butterflies, and Heidi Swapp chipboard letters.

I think Jenni's bookprint pattern is one of my favorite patterns ever. I just LOVE text.  And she has 6 colors of that pattern over at ScrapHD right now.  And now I have them all to use any way I want.  Cool stuff!!  And Jenni said she's uploading 25 more designs this month.  Can't wait!

And leaving you with a couple more photos from my Thelma and Louise field trip last week.  I totally ignored my motherly duties and drove right by my house, over hill and dale, crossed state lines, to get to another antique store.  This one's called "Antiques & Tools of Business & Kitchen" in Pound Ridge NY. It's the coolest place. And the owner will talk about politics and life with you. I love places like that.  And the "junk" is everywhere - you really got to search. I love that, too.

It looks like this outside. Can you believe neighbors complained about this? This is BEAUTIFUL!

Cool storage stuff

I was very tempted to get a muffin tin . . . 

You can find anything:

Love birdcages:

I really think I became a pharmacist because you get to play with things like this:

And there are a bunch of these outside:

And the owner threw daffodils here and there . . .


I ended up buying these 2 things:

I'll use the tin for storage and the key itself totally inspired a mini book I'll be making for ds!
