Fun at Lila's Scrapbooking - Everett, WA

Some of you know that I grew up in Everett, Washington. I have such fond memories of Everett and my time at Cascade High School (GO BRUINS!). When I was recently up in Marysville, I had an opportunity to meet up with my on-line pal, Elisa K. She told me about Lila's in South Everett. Lila's place is literally 1/2 mile from the house I grew up in. So, we met there.....

Seldom do I just walk around a store and pick and chose for one LO. I knew I had these bird photos at home, so I decided to do a zoo themed LO while I was visiting in the store.

This LO takes two pieces of Core-dinations card stock, three patterned paper, a palm tree chipboard embellishment, chalk in tea green, a chip board title and some Grunge Board photo holders.

I hand cut the background shapes using a shaped patterned paper as my template. I trimmed the inner patterned paper about 1/8 inch smaller than the original size and distressed and chalked the edges. Lila had the pp with the leaves cut out. The only change I made was that I took a corner punch (which I had in my car) and used it to punch the border scallop at the top. I found the super fun tree in my "walk about". I changed it up by tying the string (from the packaging) around the trunk.

The other huge advantage at Lila's was the air conditioning! I love that she has make and takes and a huge space for classes! All good reasons to support your LSS! Think about it!
