The favorites, part 2

On 2 Peas Refugees, last month was a thread about our all time favorite paper lines, so, here are a few of mine....  Part One is here, if you missed the previous walk down memory lane favorite things, part 1

Favorite Spring, was a tough one, I had to go back to this one...American Crafts Polka Dot Party...those little scottie dogs and the butterflies...yup, a favorite


this does not have a catagory, but it is a stack I have simply used the 'heck out of"..DCWV Vintage Collector
Favorite Fall... an old Fancy Pants, Summer's End.  There is no Winter fave, as I live in the middle of CA and we don't really have a winter here.  But the family is planning a snow trip to Lake Tahoe this year...so, I will be looking.
Favorite Baby, this is a new collection...Webster's Pages Hello World
And since this is a new unopened package, here is a page I used the cards on...then had to buy the paper cuz just LOVED the cards...
This is the first line, as a beginner, that I had to have the Collection for...Art Warehouse by Creative Imagination.  Now I don't know if it was sold in a collection pack..but what I did was special order it from an LSS, that was down near Costa Mesa, CA (where dd went to college).  I cannot remember the name of the store...but it was near a small airport.  It really was hidden away, but when I would go to SoCal to visit dd, I would stop by and visit that store.  It was a great store, She always had the latest and greatest lines...not a lot of themey stuff that most stores had @12 years ago.

Favorite Summer...MME Lime Twist,  Now this was tough..as I pretty much collect summer papers...and LOVE all the Echo Park.



here is a link if you want to revive that thread..
all time fave thread


At the present, because I mostly scrapbook my grandbabies...Echo Park is the line for me.

In the past, I used to collect Websters Pages (the classic looks) like this one classic Websters


 ...I say collect as that was a paper line I could not cut up and use...and Prima...


But looking around, I do still like Websters Pages, I do love the new direction...you know not as flourishy  vintage  (is that the right word) as before...
newer Websters


It does take me back to DCWV pp's that were pics...like the balloons and cake in the above link...but these are updated, softer,  modernized...and bokeh!!!!!...bokeh....

Okay, done ... this post is dangerous, I am refilling my Scrapbook.com cart. 
Oh and yesterday while I was using Ebay to label my PL collections, equally dangerous.  I ended up buying a new collection.

I hadn't forgotten about some of those lines! I just might have to go see if I still have some of them and use them tonight!

I still have quite a bit of Summer's End. A few papers, the 6x6 pad, and die-cuts are still in my stash. I really need to get it out and play.
