I have Issues!

I can think of at least 5 friends who will have a snarky comment to my title...sorry to disappoint, but I mean Paper Issues!  Today is my intro post over on the PI blog.  Words can't express how excited I am to be part of such a fun and talented group!  As part of our post we were asked to give 5 random facts about ourselves.  I never scrap about me, so I thought it would be fun to make a layout featuring these facts.  Take a peek...

I had a lot of fun putting this layout together...I used Allison Kreft's new Composition and Color collection for Webster's Pages as my back drop and then sprinkled in lots of fun embellies.

Fact 1 - I am a crazy cat lady.  I know this will NOT be a surprise to most.  I decorated my photo with the cute kitty clip from Studio Calico, some fun Queen and Co. washi and of course the perfect flair from PandaEight.

Fact 2 - I'm secretly jealous of my daughter's ability to take awesome selfies...true story.  My selfies are very scary.  I decorated this photo with some painted corrugated words from Jillibean and some wood veneers from Studio Calico.

Fact 3 - I am addicted to coffee.  So true. I used a cute little coffee .studio file cut with my Cameo.

Fact 4 - My husband and I are huge Jimmy Buffett Fans and go see him every year...grass skirts and all.  I highly recommend this activity.  The tailgating is phenomenal and the people watching is pure amusement.  The stamps I used have been in my stash for years...and I love the little Instagram frame from Studio Calico!

Finally...Fact 5 - I have been friends with my husband since we were 15.  I do want to point out that we did not start dating until we were seniors in college.  I do know where all the skeletons are buried.  This pic is from our recent trip to Key West to celebrate our 20th anniversary.   I embellished it with more words from Jillibean and a SC wood hash tag.
