Oh Apple... you woo me..

I want a macbook. 

I went onto apple.com the other day and customized a 15" macbook for the fun of it.  I want one. Now. Even moreso since I don't have full use of my current laptop!  Oh well, a girl can dream and when I get that extra $2000 in my bank account, I will be oh so happy. 

To help myself get through the depression of just not having that money to buy my beautiful macbook, I made some layouts (can't show you yet.. I know I'm a tease..) and a few cards.  Two of the cards were utter failures but I was pretty happy with this one:


All materials (except button, burlap and kraft) are from October Afternoon Farm Fresh line.  Such a cute line that one is.  Used my Fiskars threading water punch for that border strip.

Want to see a close up of the flower?



I had fun snipping away at that paper!  Making your own flower embellishments is such a great way to use up scraps and when you use it from the same line, you can be sure it's going to match great!

Well... off to dream about my macbook...  someday....... someday.....

Oh goodness.  And if you are a hopper on my blog from the AAM Blog Hop, I apologize for not posting the winner of my prize yet.  I haven't been near a computer for a couple of days and am playing catch up.  I will announce the winner soon!  I promise!
