A little backstory first: Gillian and I met online two years ago over at Studio Calico. I just found her hilarious, quick witted, and so sweet. She would make me laugh so hard at every reveal for Studio Calico that my sides hurt. Needless to say, when I went back to visit family in Washington State last summer, I had to meet up with G. Luckily, she also wanted to meet up and boy did we have some fun. We scrapbooked, talked, and had lunch and dinner together, and became even better friends. Seriously. She is the sweetest, most genuine, hilarious person you will ever meet. She has a fierce love for her family, and I appreciate that in another momma.

(Please ignore how large my head looks in this selfie. Is it
still a selfie if two people are in the photo?)
Something you might not know about Gillian is that she is on the Studio Calico Creative Team (as well as American Crafts.) Yup, she is that awesomely talented. I have loved her scrapbook style for a long time. It is unique and just so her. I love that her journaling is heartfelt and very smartly written.
Gillian was one of the first people I told about starting my business. She was so excited for me and could not have been sweeter or more encouraging. Last month I talked to Gillian some more about my shop, and I was thrilled when Gillian agreed to work with some of my new flair and share a project with all of you. Not only did she agree, but she made a mini album. You see, Gillian loves Halloween a ridiculous amount. I mean Seriously-Loves-Halloween. Halloween is her Christmas (if you will.) In the following images she used BOTH the Trick or Treat Flair Set as well as the Happy Halloween one. Both are available at my shop.
Are you ready to see the cutest Halloween mini ever?
I am in love with this project. I love how she used my flair, I love all of the great cards and embellishments she found that matched, and some of those older photos are just priceless. The homemade costumes when she was younger, way too cute.
If this album inspired you to shop for some flair, or if you just really want to add to your embellishment collection, I am offering up a coupon code that is good through Sunday October 5th, 2014 at midnight EST. Use Code GILLIAN and you will save 10% off all orders $10 or over in my shop. Happy Shopping!
I hope y'all have a great weekend.
