Our playdate -- take 1

The Scrapbook Cottage is a fabulous scrapbooking store in Winnipeg
that I love to visit when we go to the city.
I stopped in there at the end of February and Kathy showed me all of the new
products they'd gotten in..... including Chickaniddy Crafts!
As I hadn't received my Chickaniddy Crafts products yet, I was thrilled
to see them in real life!
I told Kathy that I was a member of the Chickaniddy Crafts design team
and she sent me home with some Date Night patterned paper and embellishments and
asked if I could make a layout for them to display in the store.
Here's the layout I made:
Date Night is a fabulous collection!
I thought it would be fun to use it to document a "date" that I had in the fall with my oldest son.
We went to see a play together -- hence the title: "our playdate" (which I diecut
using my PTI Bookprint alphabet dies.)

I made a tag in a pocket along the side, which I embellished with some Date Night sticker &
decorative brad.

I added another Date Night sticker as a banner along my journaling, which I diecut
with PTI's double-ended banner die.
The striped banner was diecut with PTI's Get a Handle on It.
The journaling was diecut with the largest tag from Reverse Confetti's Tag Me.
A few Date Night enamel hearts finish it off.

Thanks for looking!
