Peachy Picks and Stamp of the Month Scrapbook Page

Good morning, and happy Monday to ya!  Did you have a great weekend?  I certainly hope so, and if you're lucky, you got some happy stamping time in.  Speaking of luck and or lucky, I've been having a ball playing with the new Stamp of the Month stamps and the Peachy Picks Kit from Peachy Keen Stamps.  I do believe that this kit is sold out for this month, but you can still order the terrific stamps I used today.  I'm telling ya that these Peachy Picks are a hot ticket item and there are a limited number of them available, which is why you need to sign up for the club to make sure you get yours every month with no worries.  It's a great deal, and you get so much fun stuff to work with!  I LOVE them, and just wait till you see next month's kit!  It's a dandy!!  Ahhhhhh...  Be still my heart!  ♥♥♥

One of my New Year's resolutions was to TRY and attempt more scrapbook pages.  In attempting to keep myself accountable for that resolution, here's one I came up with.  Let me tell you where I was going with this one.  You see, I know that I have pictures SOMEWHERE of my youngest when he headed off to college for the first time, and I loved the idea of the "Good Luck to you!", "Miss you!", "Love you!" and "Smile!" sentiments for this page, and I thought it was a way to show a great use for these stamps other than St. Patrick's Day.  There are LOTS of occasions when a "Good Luck" card or page would be in order.  The PKSC-02 has a HUGE assortment of stamps included in the set to give you a multitude of choices for cards and creative projects each and every day. 
In addition to the PKSC-02 stamp set, I used PK-255 Happy Flowers and Cheerful Phrases for the sentiments, and PK-298 Size A2 Grampa's Pajamas (This one's a BIGGIE) background stamp, which is the pattern you see behind the shamrocks.  I used Memento Tuxedo Black ink for stamping the images, and they were colored with Copics.  The backgrounds were stamped with Stampin' Up! ink in Not Quite Navy, Old Olive and Baja Breeze, and if you haven 't used Peachy Keen background stamps, you don't know what you're missing, because they stamp so clearly and beautifully, you just wouldn't believe it!!

I think that's all I've got for ya today, but come back tomorrow because I've got a cute Good Luck card made with these stamps to share with you.  Have a blessed and beautiful day, and happy stamping!
