Hey everyone! I hope you had a great weekend. We had non-stop rain here which I actually didn't mind - it mind time indoors to catch up on laundry, read some of my book (I'm about halfway through the second book in the Game of Thrones series and I'm loving it!), and played with paper and glue of course!

Today I wanted to share a new layout I have up in the Garden today over at Two Peas In A Bucket.  Our August theme was school and I decided to create a layout to document my son Darian's experience with the Flat Stanley project this past year with his 1st grade class.  This is a really fun project and we loved collecting postcards that were sent from "Flat Darian" as he traveled across the United States.  I collected them all and knew I wanted to add them to a layout about his experience.  I used one of the Smash pockets from K&Company to hold the postcards - it was just the right size and the perfect solution.

This layout is copyright Two Peas in a Bucket

I went into my stash and pulled out some brightly colored papers from Echo Park and Bella Blvd.  These are two of my "go to" manufacturers when I know that I want something bright and cheerful on my layouts.  You can see I also added some stamps from Ali Edwards for Technique Tuesday underneath my journaling.  I am SO in love with these stamps - I just can't get enough - and combined with Jenni Bowlin inks they are just so easy to use.

These letters stickers from Bella Blvd are quite possibly my favorite font ever.  No ... wait a second ... they ARE my favorite font ever.  LOVE them!  They are fun and playful and come in lots of different colors.

And a few finishing touches with stickers from October Afternoon, baker's twine from Divine Twine, and brads from Basic Grey.

Also in case you haven't heard ... the new Pebbles 2011 - 2012 Design Team has been announced over on the Pebbles blog.  Thrilled to be working with such a talented group of ladies for what proves to be another amazing year.  Thanks for stopping by!  :)
