gettin BUSY!!!

yes, i have been gettin' my SCRAP on!!! This weekend, I pretty much scrapped, well, the whole time! Got TONS accomplished! Check it out!

3 challenges here!
1. Pile it on! fun with circles! well...i got lots of circles on patterned paper and i have a big circle with the elephant in it!
2. with rubon's! let me tell u about rubons...LOL! i did a TON of rubons here! the circle in middle is a rubon, as is the elephant! layering rubons...not so easy! took forever! my hand hurt! oh, and the sentiment also rubons! there are a million rub-ons here!
3. 365 cards they had a sketch today and well i used it for this card! loved it and thanks for the sketch!

And here we have Simply Scrapping sketch #61! Be sure to go to Simply Scrapping and see even MORE fun sketches!!!

OK...this card plays a 'duel role'. First, it is simply scrapping's card sketch #25. is also part of a BRAND NEW CHALLENGE i have challenged myself too! Being a CTMH consultant, I have over 100 stamp sets and I don't use half of them! SOOOOOOOOOOO.....I decided I was going to use them ALL! This card is part of that challenge! I used the CTMH set 'Celebration bouquet' to make this card.

This card also fulfills 2 challenges! It is Simply Scrapping's card sketch # 26, AND CTMH stamp set 'A friend is...'.

On a sad note......this layout I did totally for 'fun'.....but not really. My mom called me teh other day to inform me she had to put Lily down. Lily was my sister's dog that my mom ended up raising. Lily developed cancer a few months ago, and we found out it was HIGHLY aggressive. When I went home a few weeks ago, I made sure I spent time with Lily and said goodbye when I left. Little did I know, i really was saying goodbye. I am still very sad about this and decided to memorialize Lily with this layout. Im so sorry Lily...I will miss you.
So that is all for now! it is still early! I may make some more! LOL!!!! Be sure to stop by soon, as I am getting back into the swing of things!

Pink Elephant Challenge #29

As my title states...I made this card for the current sketch challenge over at the Pink Elephant! They had a lovely sketch over there this week and I couldn't resist playing with it! Here is the sketch:

I used some brand new Stampin' Up stamps I just got from my good friend Wendy, and brand new Graphic 45 paper! I also got to use my brand-spankin' new Rock Candy Crackle paint! LOVE that stuff! I picked it up the other day at my LSS, and well...I may need another bottle (or 10!). Any-hoo...thanks for stopping by! I did spend my entire weekend scrapping, so many more projects to be posted yet!

a few cards...

Well, once again I have disappeared from updating my poor little blog here! I have been super busy re-vamping the Shoe that I forgot all about this blog! I haven't had much time to scrap either with all the computer work I have been doing! Here are a few things I HAVE managed to get done recently!

'It's a Beautiful Day!'

This card is for the current card challenge over at the Shoe! Be sure to check it out! The Shoe is about to undergo a MAJOR change, check out my sidebar for a sneek peek! I hope you will all like the changes!


This card is for a few different challenges actually, here is the list!

1. Mojo Monday--I used this weeks sketch over there!

2. Our Creative Corner--their current challenge is to use Stampin' Ups new 'in colors'. I did my best here this may be a stretch...since I only used 2 of them ( the Dusty Durango and the Rich Razzleberry!) but, I tried!

3. Pile it on!--their challenge this week was called 'in threes'. I did this with my ribbon, sort of! I have 3 sets of 3 ribbons on the side! I think that qualifies! plus, combining with the other 2 challenges is pilin' it on!

'thank you'

This card one of Judy's sketches over at Simply Scrapping. It is card sketch #27 to be exact! Need some inspiration? Stop on by Simply Scrapping for TONS of sketches and other fun challenges!!!

That's all for now, I may have some more later as I was working on getting even more of Judy's sketches done. Plus there will be a new color challenge tomorrow over at the Shoe be sure to swing on by and check it out! Thanks for stoppin' by!
