August Scrappy Hour

Please join us on Thursday, Aug 23rd at Scrap Shotz for our monthly Scrappy Hour. I'll be hosting the class and we're making a Ribbon Spool Mini Album.

Here's a sneak peak of mine - hope you'll all join us! :)

And here's the finished project!!! I love how this turned out. Basic Grey Scarlett's Letter was perfect for these NYE pictures from 1994!!! Ahh, the good ole days!!!

I'm on a Roll!!

Carla challenged everyone to create a card from a sketch that she posted on her blog...I love the style of it and it helps that she just taught me a few weeks ago how to make this cool scalloped edge!!! So, since I need some birthday cards for next weekend I decided to take her challenge!

Here it is, Carla, hope you like it! :)

I Scrapped, I Scrapped!!!

Look at me go!! haha

I actually did some scrapping last night...this layout has been on the go for at least 2 unlike me!!!! I finally tried a couple (okay, more than a couple) colors of card stock and once I found one I like, it just came together. I asked some advice from my scrapping guru friend Wendy and she agreed that I should outline the flowers to make them pop, so I did it. Love the finished product!!!

Another Week

and it's not over yet! Ugh, tomorrow is my Saturday to's been 9 weeks, so I guess I can't complain but hey, still would be nice to have a 2 day weekend...the week after a Sat shift is always so long!!!! We've been training this week to do a special project in the office - to add to the special assignment I've already been doing for 4 years and my brain is much to learn, totally different process yet similar to what I do about confusing! We're also crazy busy this time of year with students going back to university so that doesn't help...oh the joy of the job I have to pay for my scrapping hobby!!!! ;)

It seems like forever since I've scrapped anything. I've got a lot that needs to be done before Sept 1st but our DT kits were delayed (new CHA releases!!!! :)) so we're hanging out waiting for them to arrive. While we're waiting, I have been working on a new project for Scrap Shotz that will be revealed on Sept 1st...shhhhhhhh, it's a secret!!!! I think it's going to be so cool and you'll love it! I've also been working on new blinkies for the DT team and will do one for the new focus group we have,, fun!!! For even more fun, check out Scrap Shotz for Scrappy Hour....I'll be hosting it this month on Thursday the 23rd...come check it out, it's a sweet little mini album, great little gifts! Here's the materials list; have it on hand and you can join me on Thursday!!! :)

Scrap wise, I have been working on an 8x8 album for the newlyweds from the wedding we went to in Punta Cana in April...I took the best photos that I took of the actual wedding and started putting together an album for their wedding present! I'm using a Maya Road raw chipboard album and now that I'm more than half way finished, it's starting to look like an actual album!!!!! Their colors were pink and IN right now....the MME papers I chose work perfectly...yum!!!! I hope they love it!! Once I give it to them, I'll share it here!

That's all for now folks, check back soon for the Sept 1st reveals and pray for sunshine tomorrow, hubby is going to stain our front deck finally!!!! :) :)

My To Do List is Getting Smaller

Had today off so I set myself down and worked on the two Circle Journals that I've had sitting here for 3+ weeks. Yikes! Well, I'm pleased to say that they are done, packaged and gone on to their next destination!! Yay me!

On Friday I created this little number. Based on a sketch from Getting Sketchy, love that blog!!!
