PS Holiday Prep Crop

Erica from Personal Scrapper and Carrie, the designer/creator of Paper Trunk are holding a Holiday Prep Crop in their neck of the woods, but they've extended it to the on-line community on . It's inspired me to get crafty, especially since I haven't been very active in some time with Erica's crops. It was a good chance for me to get some things in my craft room squared away and get the scrappy juices flowin'... I'm extra proud because I actually scrapped something for MY album! YUP! for M-E!!

Most items are from a Personal Scrapper add-on kit. patterned paper, alphas, stickers- Making Memories; paint-Tim Holz; currogated arrow-Jilllibean Soup; Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist

This was a really big deal for me, so I'm glad I finally did a LO for it. Some other time, I'll do one that gets a bit more into the story and process (so my family can relive this crazy time in our lives, I guess!) Whatever you gotta do to get crafty I suppose!

Thanks for stopping by and letting me know what you think. I'm going to be in a place to be doing some blog hopping again soon, so if you leave a comment, I can stop by and say hello!

Sketchabilities #35

Yep! I'm already back! I was going to preload this post, but I just couldn't stay up any later last night... So now, in between finishing up my grading, here's Karan's latest Sketchabilities sketch! It's another one of my favorites!

I got to play some more with my yummy Jillibean Soup! Totally one of my very favorite manufacturers right now!

Luckily, the rest of my order from Your Scrapbook Stash came in, so I had some new toys to play with too! I also have to give some props to my friend Kim who took those cute pics of J while at her son's birthday party a while ago! Make sure to check out what the rest of the DT created, and take a shot at the prize!

If I'm not back by Thanksgiving, come dig me out from under these report cards!

In Complete Denial...

Yep, that's me... I am, yet again, up to my eyeballs in school work. It's my favorite time of the year--REPORT CARDS. Blechh... That's all I have to say about that! So why the denial, you ask? Well, this weekend was the wonderful CK Convention in Seattle. Yeah, I know... the whole report card thingy and all, but I was super-duper stoked because I'd made arrangements to meet up with my Personal Scrapper friends! I figured a day or so wouldn't hurt anyone, so I jumped in my car and took off for Sea-Town :) A few of the girls took some pics, so I'll try to post some up when I get a chance. I also got to visit with both of my brothers and my sis-in-law as well as my dear friend from high school. Such a good trip!

Speaking of Personal Scrapper, I made this little creation as a birthday gift (but I'm having a hard time talking myself into actually giving it away!) This is using the November kit with brand-spankin' new My Mind's Eye - Fine and Dandy. The colors in this line are just awesome! I also got to play along with a new challenge blog called Paper Issues. The current issue is using scallops. I loved being able to use my punches for this one too.

Here's my creation...

I love any challenge that helps me dig into my stash! Tons of fun!

I'll be back shortly with the latest sketch from Karan at Sketchabilities. It's another gorgeous one!
