Love this memory

Over the last couple of months I have been doing an online class from Two Peas in a Bucket by Shimelle and I must say that this is the best online class I have ever done. Anyone that knows me knows that I tend to buy just a way bit to much and should in all honesty be banned from online craft shopping. So the end result is "I have a lot of product" alas some of it sits there not because I don't like it but because I find it hard to use.
Anyway to cut a long storey short in Shimelles class I have learnt to use a bit more of all this stuff goodness I tend to hoard.
I rather liked this iPhone photo of Caitlin and Joe ( even though Joe is kinda blurry) so I decided to enlarge it and do a 12x12 page.
For the title I used one of the stamps from Technique Tuesday/Ali Edwards set that I get monthly.

See I've managed to use my Studio Calico sprays, washi tape, an 8x8 paper pack, some wood shapes, lovely cabochon flowers and not forgetting one of Leena's flair buttons and a wee bit more.
I really enjoyed doing this layout and playing with my vast stash.
And if you want to see Shimelle in action go and sign up for the newsletter at TwoPeas, Shimelle does a video every week under the guise of Glitter Girl.

Now talking about spending, I already have a cricut (well 2 actually) and to be honest lately it/they haven't seen much action but I'm thinking I would like a Silhouette Cameo, what do you reckon, should I get one? For once I'm actually in two minds.

No. Step away from the computer. Put your credit card back in your wallet. You do not need another cutting machine.
Convinced? LOL. LOve your page...Caitlin is SO photogenic.

Hey Linda.....I can so relate to everything you said! Its only a few days ago I said to my self - no more on line shopping, use what I have! Your layout looks the cluster of all those embellishments. Think its a class I should take!
Have a great week:)

What a cute layout, great job using up your stash and embellishments on it. Sounds like a class we all need. It's so easy to buy all kinds of goodies then realize later we don't need them or they don't go with anything.

I agree with Suzi, step away and don't order it. Maybe someone you know has one and you can borrow it, that would be a less expensive idea. My sister and I do that at times, sharing our big stuff.

Hope all is well with you and your family.
