Cosmo Cricket GDT Spot for December: You Could WIN It!!

So!! Cosmo Cricket is having a drawing for a Guest Designer Team Spot for the month of December! This is one of my absolutely favorite scrapbook brands out there! I went on the hunt for CC Mitten Weather products in town, as that is the line that CC is looking for. 2 weeks later, I only found 2 pieces of paper. I went to almost every place within a 10 mile radius of my house, even emailing a LSS across the Narrows (no response BTW)...
So, here are my meager entries (lucky this is a drawing!) since I was reluctant to start ordering things online, which meant that I would have to order more than necessary to equal free shipping. Something my DH would have frowned upon ;)
The three cards are all made using 2 pieces of paper: Woolens and Deck the Hollies. Because I couldn't find anything else from CCMW, I used the chipboard peices that I still had from last years' Jolly By Golly line. I love, LOVE, L-O-V-E how they coordinate without really trying too hard!
Card #1: Wishing You a Sparkling Holiday

Card #2: Snowflakes and Stars

Card #3: The Snowman Cometh

Good luck to all of the entrants!

Mid Week Mojo #17

Here is my "Tiny Dancer" layout for's MWM.

I didn't have a piece of patterned paper that I liked, nor do I have mists... So, I used watercolors. It worked! Then, I realized that the watercolors were a little dark... So used a white Chalks ink pad to help tone it down.

The paper is MME, with the pink and brown paper, the B side of Basic Grey's Nook & Pantry. The journal box is BoBunny, and the flowers are from BG paper, with BG brads and buttons. Pin It

Imaginisce: Enchanted!

So... Imaginisce is launching their new line: ENCHANTED!! It is soooooo cute! There are cute pink princesses, frogs, castles, and of course... A dragon.
I'm not usually up for ultra-frilly, way-to-girly scrapbook stuff... But I think that Miss I would be in LOVE with this line!
Thanks for another great set of materials!!

Roberts Crafts: Freebie Friday!!

Why do I love the girls in my life???

I love my little monkey, I. She is the perfect image of the combination of my husband and myself. She's smart, and funny, and crazy, and spirited, and just so full of life that even why she's driving us nuts... She makes us laugh.

I know that I'm in love with her, because I smile whenever I think about her. She's my baby.

'Nuff said. Pin It

Nanny's Mini Book

Here is a collage of the mini book that I made for Nanny's 80th birthday! Happy Birthday Nanny!!!

Love the big bow on the front. There is something about gorgeous thick ribbon that just get's me every time!

I also loved the colors. Muted, but fun. It ended up being mainly pinks, browns, and greens. I chose the colors first... Then cut down the papers into squares, rounded the edges and glued it all together.

Genius! Pin It

MWM #16

This was created for ScrapbookSteals' Mid-Week Mojo #16. It was created by a guest designer!! Boy, wouldn't I love to do that sometime!
It was created using a random piece of paper that I found in the 25 cent bin at Artco. Added to that was a piece of Jillibean Soup, some Cricut double sided paper, Sassafrass Lass letters and Cricut shapes :)

I would love, love, LOVE to own these amazing spools!!

American Crafts Studio: 6 Colors Week Challenge with Wendy

I was wandering the internet and found this wonderful challenge... And a way to use some of my hoarded City Park and Blue Skies paper and embellishments!

The challenge itself is to only use six, (yes 6!!) colors throughout the entire layout. My colors are: white, tan, brown, green, pink and raspberry. I know that there is only a little bit of raspberry throughout the layout, but it is such a bright color that I didn't want it to overpower the images.

I used a comination of stripes and dots to mirror the patterns that were in the photographs. Stripes to mimic the slats in Isla's crib, and the dots to mimic the pattern of her bedclothes.

All in all, this is a pretty successful layout. Yeah!! Pin It

MWM #15, and the three Challenges!! is having their challenges once again! Here is my MWM #15: Happy Birthday Isla!! It was nice to finally put a place for her birthday photos. The layout included 5 landscape, and 1 portrait photo! Plus, a variation on patterns and styles of cuts. It was fun to make!! I opted to change the layout a tiny bit to include the rack of cupcakes that I bought specifically for her birthday!! Isla even "helped" me by pushing down the photos so they would stick.Challenge #2 was a challenge. 1 piece of shaped paper (under the circular chipboard), 2 photos, 3 words in the title, 4 pieces of chipboard, and 5 sentences in the journaling. It was a bit of a challenge, as I needed to make sure that all five sentences fit into the journaling circle. So... I practiced.
Challenge #3 was a little interesting for me, as I saw the challenge... and had an idea. The subject was Thankful. We needed to put down someone, or something that we were thankful for. I scrapbooked the things that make me sane enough to deal with the people that I am thankful for ;) Starbucks, my iPhone, and my Pink ATG gun.
Challenge #4 was all about the 4's. 4 brads, 4 ribbons (the two "woof" ribbons, and the 2 in the sticker), 4 stickers or rubons (I included the journaling sticker as one of them), and I included 4 photos and 4 letters in the title...
I love the MWM!!!
