More CHA goodness and a layout

On my list of what was fabulous at CHA was a few collections over at GCD studio's booth. They had this great vintage tiki hut style booth that was awesome. Some of my favorite lines were Vintage Boy, love those rocket ships, I adore the bright fabulous colors in Smoothie shoppe, especially this watermelon paper, and also I thought that it was ridiculously cool that they had a collection named Lydia. Never thought in a million years that there would be a paper collection with my name. You know when you go to gift shops and stuff and they have these racks of pens pencils, keychains and what not, all with names on them? Do you ever think that they had my name. Nope!! Never!! Actually that is not quite true I found a keychain once in Switzerland with my name and a little caption on it written in german, but that did not happen till I was twenty!! The only other major Lydia that came about was in the eighties when Beatle Juice came out, don't ask me how many times I have heard jokes about that one or had people ask me to say his name three times. Anyways I am rambling!!
Also I got to playing with some of the new Core Impressions, and it is no surprise that one of the first ones that I reached for was this fabulous wood grain. After CHA my hubby flew down to meet me and we spent the next four days being big kids in Disney land. What better paper for Chipmunks than tree paper. So excited!
Products used Core-dinations Cardstock, Jillibean Soup Pattern Paper and Letter and Carstock stickers by October Afternoon.



  1. my parents wanted to name me Lydia! but then they looked through a baby book and liked ellen. i am in the same boat as you. before ellen degeneres every became famous, you could NEVER find my name, LOL!
