Love the colors! I like that it is versatile enough that it can be used on boy or girl layouts. It has some great patterns and even the solid colored papers have great designs that can be used as pattern paper. I love the quality of the paper. The kit that I got included alpha's and title stickers and some great die cuts.
What I didn't like:
My only complaint was that it was impossible to find in my area. I first found it while I was in Texas and only bought a few sheets. Once I started using it I knew I had to have the whole collection.
How I used it:
I used the papers and chipboard on my "Top 10" layout for reasons why I scrap. I did add some stickles to the chipboard pieces to ad a touch of bling. I haven't used it on anything else yet. Boohoo!! I just don't want to cut the papers up. I am hoping to use it soon. Crate Paper is very addictive, I have two more collections on the way that should be delivered today!! Way to go Crate Paper!!

These cards I made with inspiration from the email from Archivers. I decided to make up some extra without a sentiment so that I am always prepared with a card ready to go. I used only scraps to make these. I love how they came out.

Beauties: This page I did for day 9 of the 10 day sketch challenge. The twist was to use bling and as you can see, I did!!! It is not often I get to do a girl page and use a bunch of bling!! I loved it.

A huge thank you for all your help here on my blog! Shoot, "HELP" is not even the right word! Help would imply that she helped me revamp my blog! When in truth, she has done it all!!! She is the one who has come up with new ideas and redesigned. She is awesome!!!!
So, Debbie, hats off to you and for all the work you have done here! I appreciate it so much!
Love you girl!!
What I liked:
I liked that you can overlap the images and they blend together perfectly. I also like that it creates a fresh young look.
What I didn't like:
Honestly there wasn't anything to not like.
How I used it:
I used different colors of Timmy's distress inks (Gotta love Timmy!) to stamp on my background paper. I just placed them at random and in different colors. I love the effect that it had and because of that, I didn't feel the need to embellish the layout any more than that! It was the perfect touch. I liked is so much that I made 2 Thank You cards after using the same technique. Check out my layout of the boys and their ring pops below.

I want to send out a big Thank You to my friend Clara who got me this Paper Loft Dude collection. I love the colors and think the collection goes perfect with theses pictures I took last fall. I have had such a great time creating with these last week. The pages were inspired by the sketches from Jami's Monthly Sketch Challenge at scrapbook.com. Last week marked the 1 year anniversary of the challenge and to celebrate there was a new sketch each day. With my busy schedule I was able to complete 5 so far. Check them out.

I was abducted by aliens and taken to their home planet, where they stripped me of all powers of communication and creative juices. They held me hostage until my friend, Debbie aka I-Blog-For-Bling, came to the rescue and paid the ransom and told them that I had been denying my blog way too long. They didn't have a choice but to release me!!! She is very convincing!!!
That is the real story! Seriously!!! No way that I could even make this stuff up!!!
So, I am back!! I am ready to share some new changes to my blog and even some layouts that I have had been working on prior to my kidnapping!!! I am still on the the DT at http://www.ifitsgroovy.blogspot.com/ Thankfully Groovy Deb was very understanding of my little predicament!! Please stop by there and check out what we have been doing and thank Deb for me!!
