Well, Cristi .. YOU are solely responsible for forcing me out of my computer chair (and temporarily away from this hop) to GO BUY some Nikki Sivils paper at the only specialty scrapbook paper store in my general area -- about 25 miles away. Arrrgh!! Inevitably, I spend WAY too much at this store, but your direction to hop on over to the Nikki Sivils spot showed me the "Your Neighborhood" papers that I just HAVE to have for a blog hop I'm in next weekend!!

TOO CUTE, and just what I'm looking for!

TTFN and THANKS (oh yeah, a LOT!!) for "making" me spend my money today! Egads.

Warmly,

All the lines are cool. I like My sweet cherry Pie the best.

Thanks for the video about the easel card.

Ellen ♥ CardMonkey said...

Alright, Cristi ... 2.5 hours later (and $60.38 lighter), I am back from the ONLY store in my area that carries Nikki Sivils. Problem is, she did NOT have the line that I wanted (BOO-HOO!!!). So I ended up getting a couple of other of Nikki's lines, as well as some other papers, some Prima flowers, some Martha Stewart scissors, ink ... etc.

None of which I "HAD" to have for this project, but you know, after so many miles .....

DRAT!! Oh I wish I knew a Nikki Sivils distributor with a FULL line ....If any of her design team has any "WE ARE FAMILY" to spare, PLEASE SEND THEM MY WAY!! My store (Creative Inklings) only had Max & Mollie. (Whine, whine)

Sooo adorable! I love your card and love the fact that everything is so coordinated! Nikki's papers are absolutely fantastic-I would love to have them all! Right now my fav would be "Its Raining It's Pouring" probably because we have had so much rain lately and I just love the turtle! I need to find an online retailer because the scrapbook stores near me don't carry her paper. TFS!
