SSHP16 - Bigger is Better

Good Morning Everyone Happy Saturday!!! Before I get to my post today as promised I wanted to tell you what the new store in Medina Ohio had yesterday!!! The name of her store is Bee Scrappy this was for sure a good find. The things that caught my eye....She had Inky Impressions Stamps, Whiff of Joy, Sparkle and Sprinkle, Copic Markers, Basic Grey, My Minds Eye, Shimmers, Fun charms and embellishments. Lots of bling, primas, inks, oh my it was a great place. I did pick up a few stamps and of course I just had to have some more paper...LOL!!!!

I am so excited for today too, I have a fun Stampin Up class to attend. I love these classes we always make such fun projects and this weeks theme is Valentines. I will be sure to post the fun stuff we made on tomorrows post!!!

Okay its Saturday and its time for another fun Saturday Spotlight Challenge. This weeks challenge is to think "bigger is better"! Use oversized big items, accessories, images etc. that may even be too large for your card!! Get out all those BIG things and use them!

For this weeks great sponsor we have
