I have now received 100 hearts to my etsy shop, yea!
My first heart was received by the incredible Crafty Vegetarian, friend and fellow scrapbooker. And my 100th heart was given by BazarBcuz, seller of kitschy vintage housewares.

It's pretty unusual for me to do a page with only one photo on it, most of my layouts are more like the second page, as many pics as I can reasonably cram on the page. I take too many pics that I like not to put as many as possible on each page, it would cost me a fortune and a million years if I didn't. I was really needing some good creative freedom, since I haven't scrapped in awhile, so I allowed myself this luxury. Totally worth it!
Each flaming star has a tip from Lil' Spitfire on How to Live Like a Rock star. Let him school you in the ways of the rocker: 1). Up all night, sleep all day 2). Live on the bottle 3). Perfect the slouch 4). Rage against the machine 5). Dress like you didn't try 6). Learn to play guitar--sort of

When I was shopping for the supplies for this album I wasn't planning on a shape, I tend to think shapes are too cutesie, but my local scrap store was all out of square so I caved since it's pretty appropriate. Cutting house-shaped paper for all 16 pages was a bit of a hand cramper. It took me about 3 evenings to go from naked chipboard to completed album. Turned out pretty cute with the ruler ribbon, brads, tool stickers, inking around the edges and construction/house themed papers, if I was building a house I might keep it for myself! I loved the maroon cardstock with blind embellished houses but my favorite little detail is the lock embellishment on the front.

I loved Lil' Spitfires collage. It was his first try with scissors, did the glue by himself and he actually managed to not destroy anything! He was very meticulous too, every piece of paper got it's own Disney sticker, only one each (well, until the very end when the Happy Feet stickers came out) and he was so deliberate with his little markings. Lil' Spitfire's mellowing in his old age.

I'm late with the news so I can't post a link since treasuries expire, but I was honored in another beautiful all AREtsy treasury, Omorfus, by SnappyBibs. My baby congrats card is bottom row left. Snappy not only makes the most adorable bibs but also nursing pads and absolutely to die for gorgeous, retro style aprons designed with a noble purpose. She's definitely worth checking out. Thanks Snappy!
