When Life Gives you Lemons....

make lemonade. Isn't that is how the saying goes? So I did and of course I made a layout. I have had these pictures of Charlotte for a while and I have been wanting to scrap them, but I did not have the right paper for it. I have had some of the Doodlebug "Bon Appetite" papers for a while and I just pulled them out when I saw the Doodlebug Vendor Challenge over at two peas in a bucket. They are giving away some cool prizes. I think the first place is their wall cupboard. I could sure use that. There are some good entries though. I just like the thrill of the contest. It would be a cool bonus to win something though.

I have to say that I really liked the diecut paper and the colors of this line just really pop off the page. I thoroughly enjoyed working with this line of papers.

These pictures were taken a while ago when I was at CHA in Anaheim, CA with Charlotte and my mom. We were eating lunch and the restaurant was a bit dark, but I loved them so I used them anyway. Mom, Charlotte and I were eating lunch with a friend of mine that I met online at Her name is Meg. She is a fabulous cardmaker. If we lived closer together, I know we would scrapbook together. And Meg if you are reading this, do you recognize the photos? You took them. ;-).

I used my Cricut as well. You can always seem to find some sort of embellishment on your Cricut cartridges that you can use. The lemon and the title come from the "Just Because Cards" cartridge.

Keep your fingers crossed for me in the contest. I really need some more storage in my scraproom. It is a mess!! I have started cleaning it up, but it has a lot more mess in it that needs to be cleaned up.

If you are looking for these Doodlebug products and are local to Louisiana, there are a couple of local scrapbook stores that carry the Bon Appetite line from Doodlebug:

Scrappin' Friendzee, Marrero, LA
Create 365, Scott, LA
So go and support your local scrapbook store. What would we do without them?
Until next time.......

Of course I remember! Charlotte was so cute eatting those lemons-she just would not give up on them-I guess that she thought that maybe the next nibble would taste better. This LO is ABSOLUTELY precious!
