Woo hooo we are on Day 2 of YSS Blog Hop Giveaway! Are you guys having fun or what? For all the details about the Blog Hop please check the post below, but COMMENT HERE AS WELL. To be entered for my second $10.00 GC giveaway!
For today's post I wanted to show a LO I did using OA Campfire line. I know it is supposed to catered to camping or out doors type, but I made my LO about my son's first day of school as a 5th grader. As you can see, this is how versatile the line is. It does not have to be woodsy pictures. I love that I created this LO on a line that you lease expect.
1st Day of 5th Grade
Close up pics below. Supplies: October Afternoon Campfire pp and alphas, Jellybean corrugated stars, MM buttons, MS twine and EK Success notebook punch.
I also created 3 cards using Echo Park Little Boy line just for fun! I enjoyed playing with this line so much that I just couldn't stop. I literally kept making projects. I have so much more left over even after creating extra LO's and cards for my assignment, I have plenty more if I want to keep creating.

Oh Boy! card

Need to STOP looking...

through all the CHA sneaks. I really do! I am just dying here. Here are some of my current FAVES right now:

Maya Road
SERIOUSLY! How do they do it. Every time they come out with new products I just end up loving everything. But then again I am a doo dads kinda gal. These had me at hello! I want these sooo bad. What I would do to get on their DT.

Crate Toy Box
OMG this is a MUST HAVE. I am really trying to catch up on scrapping my son's pics. And this is just perfect for all those shots of him playing with his toys, dinos all kinds of stuff. LOVE THIS. Love the Emma line too of course. Since I am obsessed with scrapping my daughter and anything girly.

Studio Calico
I think its called Countryside. YUM! I want everything that goes with their lines. EVERYTHING!

Studio Calico State Fair
C'mon with matching Mister's! I also love all the rub-ons and notions.

Oh how I love me some Prima! I could have posted a thousand pics of all their flowers but I stuck with these. I just think these are so elegant. Love the colors! I might edit this post when I get more time to post my fave flowers from them. If not just go to their blog and see their flower you will pretty much agree ALL OF THEM are a MUST.

Tim Holtz Dies
Oooooh Weeee! I still have not been able to get a hold of his last release dies but these are my fave from this CHA.

Studio Calico Wood Veneers
Oh my gosh! And I also want the Pink Paislee and Kaiser Crafts one. Soo many have wood veneers out. Really going to be fun creating with all these goodies.

My Minds Eye
Not really my fave CHA release from them this year. Although I did manage to find one line that I would like to play with. I think its cuz it reminds of the Basic Grey line from a while back that I still love and have not touch to this day.

Kaiser Crafts has a line called Gabrielle that I like too. Just too tired to keep posting pics since I did it like 3 times over, due to blogspot freaking out on me.
Anyway...I know, I am a horrible person. I just wanted to share the drool fest going on in front of my computer. I hope you are like me, just dying to get these goodies in your hands. I must scrap cuz I need to finish using up some goodies that are yet to be touched before I allow myself to go crazy buying all these. YIKES!

Have a great day!

I know, exciting right? But before I give you all the info let me share with you what I have been working on. Go ahead, say it......BOOO! I know I am such a tease, but hey its worth the wait I promise!
I was really happy when I opened my box to see the October Afternoon Campfire line. And I knew the perfect picture to go with it. Here is my LO below using the line.
Six Little Critters
I used everything from the line, plus I added a few paper from Weathervane to create the little hill and the pop dotted clouds. I think it turned out exactly how I had imagined it.
