One Layout + Sneak Peeks

If you are looking for the giveaway, please go here.

The February Creating Keepsakes is out, and I thought I'd share my layout. It was published in the story about creating layouts that stay fresh year after year. As opposed to following trends that might scream "that's so 2008." Not that I know what was the "in" thing back in 2008. Or 2009. Or 2010.

It made me wonder about what makes a layout, classic? I have some layouts that, uh, sport Paperkins. Remember those? Little paper dolls that you can dress to match your layout's theme. I used to be obsessed with getting the little suckers to match my kids' outfits in the photos, and spent hours making the Paperkins clothing. Uh, yea. But seriously, back then Paperkins seemed so, well, classic! And now, they scream "2001!" (I'm saying 2001, only because that's when I was using them.) And now you know too much about me.

Onto better a subject! Lily Bee Design Winter 2011 products! Holy cow. They landed on my desk today, and uh, this is the best release yet. The patterns, the colors, all amazing! Alas, I can't share much. Yet. Here are some peeks, though.

We'll start a countdown to CHA in a few days over at the Lily Bee blog. And there will be giveaways of the new stuff!

Signing off to do some (Paperkin-less) scrapping. Then this weekend, I'm driving almost 3000 miles with my husband, two gerbils, and one fish. To Los Angeles. Strange enough, one can take dogs and cats aboard an airplane. But no gerbils or fish. So this is the only way we can transport those little suckers. I know. I'm such a good parent. (No need to ask my kids or anything. Really. They would only agree with me, you know.)

Your stuff will ALWAYS be timeless :) And I wish you the best of luck on your 3000 mile journey (deep breaths.)

*sigh* I love your LO... and funny thing, I bought that issue of CK but I haven't had a chance to open it yet. *sigh*

Love the Lily Bee sneaks. LOVE the classic look and can hardly wait to see you work with it.

Have a safe drive to sunny CA. I hope you'll keep in touch via iPhone on your trip. <3

Paperkins? You? Somehow, I think you're pulling our legs! I'm pretty sure I could come over, pull out any layout you've ever done and it would still look really current.

Thanks for the peeks--can't wait to see the entire lines!!
