My favorite new find, and a layout to boot!

I love it when I pick up a new treasure. These treasures need not necessarily be new, just something I am finally trying out. A few days ago, I ventured into my local Michael's store. The buzz over at was that M's was totally rearranging their scrappy stock, and getting in new and amazing paper packs. As a scrapper, I should have a LOAD of patterned papers, but in reality, I don't feel I really have that much of a variety, so the idea of new paper packs completely thrilled me. At M's, I stumbled upon so many new paper collections, that I became quite giddy! I saw many I liked and wanted, but when I picked up the "Complete Boy" stack from My Mind's Eye, I was instantly in love. Yes, it has boy papers in it. The traditional stripes, dots, arrows, stars, and circles are included, BUT the stack is also full of so many versatile papers! It is perfect for heritage, family, heck, I could even eek out some CHRISTMAS layouts from this stack! With 180 sheets, this baby is sure to be a staple in my stash for quite some time, and I am thrilled about that! Here's my first layout using the stack, all pp's are from it, and you can see, it isn't a "boy" layout at all!

Do you admit it?

Do you love the smell of paper? Do feel all giddy when you get your hands on a new paper pack, and you just can't help yourself?....You lean over....You......SNIFF!! Well, I admit to it, LOL!! Here I am checking out my new Basic Grey distressed cardstock....HAHAHAHA! C'mon, who's with me??!!! (Oh, it smells FAB!!)
