Scrappin' with Sweet Shop

Brace yourselves stampers - I'm about to share some scrapbook pages!
HA! I know, it's been like, forever, since I've done some scrapbooking for you. Since December and the 20 page album, right??
Actually, there's been a lot of scrapbooking going on around here lately. You know I'm teaching a new class right? Yep. It's called "Oh Scrap! It's Monday!" -borrowed that from someone - and it's 2 hours, 2 12" x 12" pages for just $10 complete! 
Anyway, I keep forgetting to take pictures of my pages, so the other day when I was playing catch up with the camera, I pulled these out as well.

Now, I  know that the Sweet Shop Suite of Products has been retired, but listen, I KNOW you still have some of that very cool paper and those cute stickers and those sweet jelly bean brads hanging around your stamp table, so now you have a new idea to justify keeping them around, right??

So, here's the left side page of the 12 x 12 spread:

I took my inspiration from a spread I'd seen on Stampin' Connection by Cathee Anderson and my pages just took off from there. This product suite was perfect for some photos of us on one of our skating trips to Lowell, MA. The picture on this first page was taken at Johnny Rockets. Emma and I were enjoying the Dark Chocolate Milkshakes - yumm!!

The ribbon is Soft Suede Striped Grosgrain which is still available until May 31st. 
This embellishment was done with the Labels Framelits, Sweet Shop DSP and Lucky Limeade cardstock. I stamped the main image from Sweet Cake with Whisper White craft ink and heat embossed it with White Embossing Powder. The phrase was done the same way and popped up on dimensionals after punching it out with the Modern Label Punch. I added some bling by punching the cherry and heart from Red Glimmer Paper. Too fun!

This little medallion at the top left corner is one of those cute stickers on a punch of Whisper White. It's layered on a punch of Wisteria Wonder and layered again on more DSP punched with the Scallop Circle Punch.

The right side page has photos of Mark and Emma enjoying a celebratory dessert after her competition at the Eveready Diner in Brewster, NY. They discovered this restaurant on a trip a few years ago when I was in Phoenix for Leadership Conference and now whenever we travel north, it's a must stop for us. Yummy food and even better desserts!
I used the Scallop Square Dies with the Big Shot for those photo mats.

This little embellishment is from Button Buddies. I added two Real Red buttons for the cherries and a Lucky Limeade Ruffled Ribbon bow as an accent.
My family is really the cherry on top for me!

Well, I hope I didn't shock you today with some traditional scrapbooking pages! I have a few more to photograph and show you, so if you're a loyal reader, you'll be seeing them soon, I promise!

Have a great day everyone - go stamp something fun!
