Freehand Scraps II and Planning Ahead with Groupon!

One more lay out with my Feb. Freehand Scraps kit. This kit had my favorite colors to scrap with. I love pink, red, aqua and yellow. Okay and orange and white. I punched the butterflies with my Martha punch and trimmed around the punched out butterflies for the negative space ones that you see. Scrapped my mom and the kids, so lucky to have her and my dad, they are so supportive of us, so loving.
For the banner trim below, it is one piece, I had had fun cutting it out in a wavy pattern to create the scalloped look that you see.
Do you use Groupon? I love it. Yes I got the Barnes and Noble deal the other day and yes I used it towards the purchase of my Nook last night! Can't wait to get it connected with my public Library. Anyway, there is another fantastic Groupon today. It is an online company so it doesn't matter where you live. You get $50 worth of product from Mixbook for only....$15!!!!
What? Yes it is true and I have already purchased mine. I looked up the prices and I can get 75 high quality photo Christmas cards on nice paper for the value of the Groupon for $15!! It doesn't expire until next year, so I am good for Christmas!! You can also use the amount towards yearbooks and photo books , I am thrilled. I think the offer expires tonight, so you gotta act quick!

Nice layout. It's great that you have cool handwriting too. (Mine is horrible.)

I new to the whole Groupon thing and haven't actually used any yet. I'll have to pay more attention before I just delete them (too many junk emails)
