Wow what a week, I've hardly had time to sit let alone relax! *sigh* But at least it's Sunday now, little man is sleeping & the miss is happily reading (The Space Between if you're curious) so I FINALLY have time to myself!
If you've never heard of Steals.com, you owe it to yourself to check it out. They have twice daily steals for all things baby, kid & scrap/ crafting as well as daily steals for us women to pamper ourselves. Recently ScrapbookSteals celebrated their 4th birthday with a week-long celebration culminating in one of their most interesting steals to date "Box of Scrap". 3.5lbs of scrappy goodness for $25 (retail value $95); it's like a mystery box & who can resist the allure of a mystery box?
Among the scrap-gasm there was an oddity though, Jenni Bowlin (bottom left), never heard of it and can't say I was too impressed at first look. But then after I got to thinking, it occurred to me that they have a French Provencal sort of feel to them and as if by magic my eyes came upon the picture of Erin & Marie from Disney World 2012. I had been struggling with this picture because it was a solo print & there wasn't a strong story behind it but still it needed to be included in the album. Now I had these "French" papers & a picture of a French cat w/ my daughter who must be part Parisian how perfect! And just to keep the ScrapbookSteals theme going I used aquamarine sketch 4 to inspire the layout.

Hope everyone has a enjoyable & relaxing rest of the weekend before insanity brews again!
