Gasp!

Have you ever been walking through your LSS and suddenly stopped and gasped (almost inappropriately) because you see some love at first site product?  Yeah, well that's what I did this past Tuesday.  I went to Archivers, which is a rare treat in itself, and saw the American Crafts Amy Tangerine line.  And oh yes, I had to buy it up, even some of the Thickers, at full price, yikes!  So not like me, but as I said I had a moment.  When I got home I immediately dug into it and created this little beauty:

It's made mostly with the American Crafts line with exception to the brads and the scraps of paper I used to mat the pictures.  Just a clean simple layout that is based on last weeks sketch over at Sketchy Thursdays, for which I missed the deadline, but at least I squeezed in some scrappy time right? :)

But I'm curious, have any of you had a scrap-gasmic experience... in public?

Love the cute pics! And the awesome heart! This line looks amazing! :)


P/s: Hmmm...haven't been really excited about a line in a long time....but maybe because I haven't seen this line in person? lol

My local store is so tiny and they don't stock 'lines'. There's a bigger store I get to viist when I take DD to visit ther Dad but they had less lines in last visit. I get to see everything on line, which just isn't the same.

I think I might have gasped at an owl decorated paper line before! Haven't gasped in public for a while, but do when I'm browsing online!

Love the heart made with brads - awesome! X

LOL!!!! seriously.. when I read that last sentence. funny stuff. =)
and yes, it is super cute. You made the paper look even more spectacular. and great use of brads.
Miss scrappin with ya. it's been way too long. the weekend of the 9th and 10th, if the planets align, we need to crop together...

and you know me, I've had multiple gasp moments.. I think i squealed a bit when I bought the silhouette SD for $50 or when I saw the puffies, or got my first Lawn Fawn stamp... too many to list..
