first ... the layout i did last night.
i just love this layout for a few reasons. first, the bright colors of these fun autumn leaves papers and stickers ... love them against the black and white. second, i stamped ... i'm not a stamper ... but i love these word stamps by heidi swapp. third, the embellishments that seemed to match perfectly. forth, i just love that this layout is about something ... and yet about nothing at the same time. lol! i had absolutely no idea where i was going with this when i started. but i picked out that "imagine" stamp that fit and that i've been wanting to use. then i found the chipboard numbers and they seemed like fun. so i literally walked around this morning thinking of "what do i imagine ... what 3 things do i want to imagine". lol! i need to do more layouts like this. just playing and having fun. in fact i started another one tonight and ended up using something i've had for ages and never got around to using ... in involves the word "fabulous". so stay tuned to find out what i find "fabulous". lol!
edited to add this card ... mainly because it matched the layout ... and it totally clashes with the layout and card i'm going to post in a few hours. lol!
i've been cleaning out my idea books this past week. i'm an idea book fanatic ... but i really felt the need to purge some of my collection. so i paged through each of these books looking for anything i wanted to keep. and now i'm ready to pass them on. i thought about ebaying them ... i've done that successfully with tons of idea books. but that seemed like a lot of work. lol! so i thought i'd check with everyone here and see if any of you might need or want any of these ... although aren't "need" and "want" basically the same thing when it comes to scrapbooking. lol! here's a list of what i have:

all of my books are in excellent condition. although most of them are probably missing a few pages. i usually tear out anything that catches my eye and that i really want to remember. but most of these are missing maybe 5-8 pages at most. and some of them aren't missing anything. not to say that they're not good books ... i'm just very selective nowdays as to what i tear out. lol! so please let me know if you have any interest in any of these. i'll make you a awesome deal, i promise. just leave me a comment or shoot me an email. doesn't really matter which ... since any time you comment it sends me an email. lol!
