Scrapbook Layout: Companion and a "Haul"

I got new paper! 2Peas a few weeks ago had a sale where everything in the store was 20% off AND the free shipping still worked. Sometimes they do that and then take away free shipping, immediately making me uninterested. But this time I had to jump on it. I haven't had new paper since I went to Archiver's in February. Yeah. So I went and cherry picked from the mid-season releases, picking up 8 lines worth. The max was 10 papers from a line and the average is 5 pieces. It was a 5/8 of an inch stack of paper and I was surprised! I quickly sorted it all by line and put it in my Cropper Hopper Page Planner envelopes, but I haven't filed it away yet.
Though I'm really bad at buying and using embellishments I managed to pick up these few things. I can always seem to use enamel dots, or tiny things like wood veneers on both scrapbook layouts and cards so I figured those were a good buy. The stickers are colour-able so they should work for lots of stuff. The Gelatos I threw in to push me into the free shipping cos some of the stuff was on clearance and didn't count. But I don't have any of the colours so that helped and I can colour the stickers with them so that works. My total order was $60, which isn't bad at all for my "once a year" 2Peas order.
The kind of person I am is I'm very influenced by the new. I get super excited and want to use the new right away and that is something I definitely had to take advantage of. Having a Selphy really helps with that cos these photos are from like two weeks ago. No sending away to be able to use my new stuff. I picked out the paper I'd bought from Carta Bella called "Hello Again". I only have a few pieces of their Halloween paper, so I didn't know that they make such thick, textured paper all the time, but I really like it. This layout is completely stolen from here. I think that helped me do this as I finished it in 30 minutes. It's also an answer to the Create a Day August in the 2Peas forum. I'm obviously behind, but I've been inundated with card projects and I actually wanted to *scrapbook* for this challenge so I'm playing catch-up.
