Smile! Life is Awesome!!

Hey all!! How's the weather? Has the warmer temperature reached you Yet?? If it has, send it my way! I'm freezing!! LOL!!
A few weeks ago I had the honour of attending Scrapbook and Cards Today's CROP AND CREATE event on Moncton! To say it was fabulous would be an understatement!! It totally rocked!!  I was able to help out in 3 classes for Spellbinders taught my Kim Hupke and Mrs Spellbinders herself, Stacey Caron! It was SOOO much fun to be in the classroom with them! Let me just say that the students left VERY happy!! :)
While there I also had a little bit of time do create myself. So I dug out my new DCWV DIY Project Stack. But I did not create a project, as in this post here. But I did use the papers (gorgeous!!) to create this fun layout!! I love that this stack is SO extremely versatile!! Projects, cards or layouts! Anything you desire!!

I die cut most of the papers using Spellbinders Standard Circles small and large.  I nested them all together to create the rings. I think this is one of my favourite techniques... like, ever!!  I also added lots of little extras on here to coordinate with the papers... I had a few little strips of other patterned papers in black/white stripes, some wood embellishments and frame, Foam squares to add dimension to some of the circles, Enamel dots, a stamp and of course, some splats using Imagine Crafts irRESISTible texture 
And wanna hear something funny?? I went to an all weekend crop and forgot to bring... PHOTOS!!! I did not bring a single picture with me! Dummy me! LOL!  So I was so thankful when Stephanie and Tracy saved the day with their Instax printers! Thank you ladies! So I got these cool mini polaroids to scrap with! Totally cool! :)
