Road Trip & Sharing a Sneak of October's Cocoa Daisy Kit | Sweater Weather

Hi everyone! I am back from a fun and busy weekend road trip to Minnesota to visit some dear friends. Got a chance to check out the Mall of America, (Finally! I was born and raised about an hour and a half from there and had never been! Long overdue visit to say the least! LOL) Scrapfest, Archiver's, and collect some goodies from the October Afternoon Warehouse sale! Seriously awesome deals there. So happy I drove instead of flying. More room for the stash! ;)

This little piece of decadence was divine (and thankfully shared three ways-LOL). It was a chocolate amaretto cake from a little local Italian restaurant run by three Lebanese brothers who gave us the best service and smiles.
I took this pic along from the MOA to show my boys a bit of the scale of the mall and all of the fun things it houses inside it. 
And the Lego store here?!! Beyond fabulous! Ginormous Lego figures. Compare their size to the  people below-Wowza.

The OA Warehouse Sale was very well organized and had fabulous discounts on all items up to and including Travel Girl. I bought a bit for myself and some for my local scrapping besties too. Oh, and I cannot forget to mention that the adorably cute Brinkley made an appearance and walked the aisles welcoming customers in the cutest way! Love that pupper!

 And I got a chance to visit Big Bowl again. I loved that restaurant when we lived in Chicago and have missed eating there so was happy to get a chance to indulge again. :)

Anyways, now I am back in my scrap space hunkering down with the fabulous October Cocoa Daisy Kit  "Sweater Weather." This is the perfect month for me to guest design there as the colors in this collection and the theme is right up my scrap alley. Serious love for this kit. Truly. The pairing of patterned papers with embellishments and stamps is fabulous!

So here we go. Here are a few sneaks of what I have been creating with this kit:

So very thankful for the invite this month! A special thank you to Christine and Emily for this lovely opportunity to crate with this awesome kit!! :) :)

Happy Saturday all! Grab a cup of cocoa and head on over to Cocoa Daisy & join in the chat from 7-9 PM CST  TONIGHT for the reveal of  Sweater Weather! Would love to have you join us! :)
