That Time of Month When...

.... I get inspired by all the PTI design team releases. I just might have taken a huge hint from this card here. Nichole's the queen of the "one special detail". Always manages to blow it out of the water.

.... I make a PTI order to get caught up on some older stuff. Even though I was PTI's best customer, there are still stamp sets I don't own. Going to get 2009 Halloween and Autumn Tags this month. The card above uses my "new"  Autumn Abundance stamps for the first time. Lovely.

... I put in a little extra time into some magazine submissions. Eliza's getting her first scrapbook page. Headed over to Cindy's tomorrow to raid the new My Mind's Eye in person. How fun is it that I have such an awesome online store so close by and know the owner? Best of both worlds when I get to go shop in her basement. 

...I contemplate cleaning up my office. Yeah. Thought about it and decided not to.

...I check my email a million times a day waiting to see the PTI release for next month. Always very exciting! Haven't seen it yet. Maybe tomorrow:). Here's to hoping. The day of that email is my 2nd favorite day of the month. The 1st? Getting the PTI box. :)

Supplies by PTI:

Stamps: Autumn Abundance, Mini Scrapbook Series Library Ledger, and Birthday Basics
Paper: Perfect Match Cardstock in Kraft and Scarlet Jewel
Beautiful Blooms Impression Plate
Copic Markers
Scarlet Jewel Perfect Match Ink
Mat Stack 3
 Spring Moss and Ripe Avocado Twill
