Jolly Memories with MDS Monday

Well, it's a cold rainy day here in the South - isn't it supposed to be Spring?!  Oh well... makes it a perfect day to stay inside and scrapbook!  I found a fun sketch over at MDS Monday and thought I'd play along.  I have the cutest photos of our Elf on the Shelf from last Christmas and I definitely want the boys to remember these memories.  I did a 2-page layout:

The majority of this layout was made using the 12 Days til Christmas Swatchbook Template download.  I love that download - the papers and colors are so fun!  I also used the frames from the Downtown Grunge Photobook Template - one of my staples.  :)

Here is the sketch I used from MDS Monday:

Stampin' Up! News!!!

We all love color... especially Stampin' Up! colors!  Well, it's time for Stampin' Up!'s Color Refresh to get ready for the new 2013-2014 catalog!  Stampin' Up! is discontinuing some colors and also bringing back some fun old colors.  I'm thrilled to see that several of the In Colors from 2011-2012 are staying - Pool Party, Calypso Coral, Wisteria Wonder.... !!  You can see the changes in the chart below:

Beginning today, all retiring/discontinued color products (ink, paper, ribbon, accessories, etc.) will be available ONLY while supplies last.  This means that some products will not be available through the retired list period - April 24 - June 3rd.  So, stock up on your favorites before they're gone for good!

And, if you're worried about how much the shipping of all that cardstock is going to cost ya... guess what?!

Stampin' Up! announced today that there will be FREE SHIPPING April 6-8th on everything!!  (The only exclusion is expedited orders).  You can place an order directly through my website or contact me with your order.  Now is the time to stock up on discontinued items, or get the new This and That product line or our new Photopolymer stamp set!  This is a great promotion.... so take advantage of it while you can! :)

And finally, don't forget to place your order for the Paper Pumpkin monthly kit - if you're not already subscribed!  You must sign up by the 10th to get this month's kit.  Make sure and select me - Cori Kozak, Acworth GA, as your demonstrator.  :)

Thanks for visiting!!
