I have some news on the scrapbooking front. I have applied for my first ever design team. I have never done this before and I am very excited! I won't know until the end of the month if I made it and I can't wait! I applied at a very cool place called Your Memories by Design. She has a great blog, forum and a really awesome store. She makes some of the neatest things! Here's a link, check it out! http://ymbd.blogspot.com/ I'll let you know how it turns out.
I am also taking an online class by Jessica Sprague. I am super excited about this too. it's a free class which is great and I think it will be a good learning experience. Here's a link to that too.http://www.jessicasprague.com/
Got lots of other stuff to catch up on and post soon. Keep checking back!

This is a LO I did about my hubby and I. It was originally suppose to be part of an anniversary gift for him, but I didn't get it done in time. So I just made it for fun. The pink shaped paper is actually the page, the neutral behind it is just something I laid it on to take the picture. These are pics we took in a photo booth at the mall. We like to do silly things like that and it's fun to see how silly the photos will actually be! : )
Making Memories paper, College Press journaling card(I love these), Zig pen, Paper Studio clock faces, Autumn Leaves swirl stamps, 7 Gypsies stamp, Stickles glitter, misc. date stamp, crystal swirls, ink.
Thanks for peeking, let me know what you think!

This is the card I made for the contest I mentioned in my previous post. Unfortunately I don't think I made the deadline. But, I am still going to add it to the contest list. And, I am still going to mail it out. This was a worthwhile cause and very fun to make the card. Whoever wins the prize pack will be loaded with goodies for a long time!
For those who may want to know. This card is made of DCWV cardstock, new Basic Grey ambrosia paper, American Crafts felt flowers, EK Success gem, American Crafts ric rac and misc. journal card and sticker.

Check out the blog candy on this blog. She is giving away an awesome prize pack! All she asks is that the contestants make a card or two or three for someone who is an Alzheimer's care giver. This is a wonderful idea and a wonderful cause. I think this is very worthwhile and plan to participate! Plus, who can pass up a prize pack like this?!! Please check it out!

Scrapfest was great again this year! I recommend it to anyone who is even a little interested in scrapbooking! It is so much fun and so educational. I took two classes this year instead of one like last year. I'm glad I did. My first class was with Scrappy Cat/Darice company. Now honestly I had never heard of this company but the class sounded fun so I took it. I am so glad I did! They gave us a boat load of supplies and they are really nice things! Definitely worth more then what I paid for the class. We made a 8x8 album. They gave us an album with all the papers precut for the pages. Then it was up to you to put them together and add some embellishments! So cool. Also very nice people. A husband and wife started this company. If you have a chance, check out their website or blog. I will get a link when I can.
My second class was with Hero Arts and was taught by Jennifer Maguire. That's why I took it. She is a pretty famous scrapbooker. In this class we put together a clear acrylic tag mini album. It was very cool taking a class with Jennifer, she is a very good scrapbooker and I have seen her work all over the place. The class itself was very fast paced. This is ok, although I had a little trouble keeping up. But, that's good for me too. I am a slow scrapper so this takes me out of my box and makes me try something new/different. Speaking of that I used Stazon ink for the first time to stamp on the tags. That stuff was different and hard to clean off. I don't think I like it although it was nice on the acrylic. Probably won't be buying any though. We got our little album supplies and a nice set of stamps in this class. I also won a door prize and got another set of stamps for Christmas. These will be nice to have.
All in all, very good class experiences. Again, I recommend to anyone. Plus, it's the Mall of America! We are talking shopping here people!!!! How can you go wrong!

I received my wonderful prize pack last Friday! Unfortunately I have not had time to upload images until today. As you can see it is a spectacular array of scrappy goodness! First there is a brown Doodlebug brand tote and it was filled with lots of Doodlebug goodies! A craft knife, a mini album, a cutting mat, some glitter chipboard letters, some glitter, some jewels, and a couple of alterable items. As if that isn't good enough, the piece de resistance, a Mimi large rolling tote!!!! This is awesome! I realize you non-scrappers don't understand the excitement behind this, but believe me it is exciting! First of all, this tote retails for $149. Yep. Second, this thing has enough pockets and places and room for everything I could possibly want to take with me anywhere, ever. I can not put into words how frickin' cool this is!!!! Thank you scrapbook. com! What an awesome web site. Enjoy the pics everybody! Don't be surprised if you see me wheeling down the street toting my bag behind me. Empty, with nowhere to go. Just me and my tote, looking good. : )
Strike a pose!
P.S. How cool that my new t-shirt matches my new bag! I am just that good.

Continuing on with lots of projects. Still going with my acrylic album. I did take a couple of photos that I will post soon. Also working on my March page for my year album. My year album consists of a two page layout for each month of the year. Just some highlight photos and quick journaling. It's a good way for me to keep up with the memories each month even if I don't get the pages done I want to. Lastly, I have Dylan's card box to decorate. This box is for his graduation party next weekend. I was at a loss on what to do with it, but inspiration hit while in Hobby Lobby! I think I have come up with a couple of good ideas, now just to get the project done for the party! It's been pretty busy around here! But, my creative juices are flowing and I'm loving all these opportunities to express myself!

This blog will be a mix of things. First and foremost it will be about scrapbooking. Scrapbooking that I do, that others do, ideas, techniques, etc. Whatever tickles my fancy really. It will also give my family and friends an opportunity to see my work and what interests me. Secondly this blog will be a place for random blabberings. I tend to do this in life out loud, so I may as well do it on the web too! I will talk about family, work, hobbies and interests, world events. Probably not world events, but I was trying to sound cultural. Hopefully I will be good for a laugh occasionally, and good for inspiration and ideas always. I hope to make some friends through this blog, keep in touch with friends I already have, and maybe get some of myself out there in the world. Especially the scrapbooking world.
This is just the start. I want to customize the blog to represent me a little more. I also plan to upload some pictures and layouts soon. It may take a while, but I'll have this place looking like home!
