SCRAPBOOK SATURDAY - A COCONUTTY CHALLENGE!

Hi all! This will be a very quick post because MY SON IS COMING HOME TODAY - WHOOHOO!!!!! Zach is flying in at noon today and will be home for three weeks!! We have not seen him since Christmas so I am beside myself...I can't wait to give my baby a hug!! Yeah, I know he is 19, but he will always be my baby!!! So, on to the page - today is Scrapbook Saturday and so I decided to do a challenge one of my fellow DT members posted in the Coconuts Forum! It was to do a page about myself, which I found hard to do, I mean I am usually the one behind the camera - LOL! But, I did it, and I like the way it turned out! There were two stipulations: there had to be some pink on the page (check) and there had to be some bling (check) so I did that. I used some Stampin' Up! stuff and some not, the papers are from the Coconut June kit which is fabulous!!!! If you have not been over to the Coconut Scrapshop website and store, go over and check it out - you won't be disappointed! The board is filled with wonderful women who stamp and scrap, and Jen has fabulous stuff in her store! So, I will leave you with a recipe and then I am off to pick up my son - YAHOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! And, if you decide to play along and do a page today, make sure you tell me so I can check it out! And, if you register on the Coconuts MB, let me know so I can give you and your blog a shout- out!
Page Recipe: (all products Su! unless otherwise noted!)
Paper -Basic Black, Rose Red, and Pretty in Pink card stock, Pink Paisley Office Lingo collection
Inks - Black Stazon, Basic Black and Pink Passion classic stampin' pad
