Happy Friday!!

TGIF!!  Although, I have to work tomorrow, so it's not "really" the "weekend" for me! LOL  But that's OK... I'm off today! :)

Today I'd like to share a 12"x12" layout I created the other day to fulfill a few challenges. :) 

These are two of my furbabies... Fred (right) & Ginger (left)

Supplies Used:  K&Company Patterned Paper, DCWV Cardstock, Altered Prima Flowers, American Crafts Rub-On Alphas, Stamp Effects Scrappy Cat Stamps, StazOn Ink, Martha Stewart Large Border Punch, Cricut Expression, Accent Essentials Cricut Cartridge

The above layout fulfilled 3 challenges! (Love when that happens! LOL)  1) The "What's New Wednesday" for 1/5 at Cookin' Up Creations. 2) The Sketch Challenge at Blue Moon Scrapbooking. 3) The "All About Scallops" challenge at The EK Success Flock Forum.

I'd also like to share another page for my daughter's recipe book!  This is one of our family favorites! :)

Supplies Used:  K&Company Patterned Paper, DCWV Cardstock, Generic White, Silver & Black Cardstock, Cricut Expression, From My Kitchen Cricut Cartridge, Fiskars Border Punch

Well, that's it for today!  Hope you all have a wonderful day!!

A little tease...

Good Morning!!  It's Monday morning, kids are all back to school & hubby & I have the day off!  WOO HOO! LOL  I am looking forward to some quiet time to get some thing organized & maybe do a little scrapping!!  My latest project is a cookbook for my daughter.  No idea when it will be finished, but I'm having fun making it!

I've only done one page so far... one of my favorite recipes... The proportions of the page are a bit off, as I changed my mind in mid-layout as to what size & what album I was going to use.  I will end up matting this one on cardstock & finishing the book in an 8x8 format that will allow me to slide the pages into sheet protectors.  TFL!

Supplies Used:
K&Company patterned paper, generic ivory cardstock, Stampin' Up! border punch, DCWV cardstock, misc. silver cardstock, Cricut Expression with "From My Kitchen" & "Hello Kitty Font" cartridges.

OK, So... I promised a little tease... How about a sneak peek of the newest Range Kit that will be available this month at The Scrappers Outlet!  I had so much fun working with this fun, colorful kit, & it was from a company I hadn't worked with before, but I'm sure some of you will recognize it...

This kit should be available in The Scrappers Outlet on-line store very soon!!

Thank you all for stopping by & Have A Great Day!!

Good Morning All & Welcome to 2011!!

I don't know about you, but the past few years have been tough on my family & I'm looking forward to a fresh start in 2011!  And, Praise the Lord, things are already heading in that direction!!  My husband has gotten a full-time job with AWESOME benefits!!  We are hoping to move in the next few weeks, into a bigger, nicer place.  I may even get a car in early 2011!

As for my scrapping.... well, I think I'll be taking a break from Design Teams.  I'll finish out my term with my current team & then just do some scrapping for me.  I also want to try to jump start my Stampin' Up! business & cake business in 2011!!  If anyone is interested in a hosting a Stampin' Up! "Catalog" party, let me know!  There are some great hostess benefits & the brand new Sale-a-bration starts this month also... more chances for FREE stuff!!  So please contact me through my personal Stampin' Up! web-page!

Thank you all for continuing to follow my blog, even though I have been very bad about keeping it updated!  That will change in 2011 too!!  Have A Wonderful Day!!
