Here it is!

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.

Hot Damn, I won!

I entered a contest at It was a week long challenge to create a mini album that concentrated on journaling.

And yes, you got it-I WON!!!!!!! I can't frickin' believe it! I am so excited I could just bounce right out of the chair! LOL! Here are some pics of said album. Might as well show it off a bit!

The card box

Here are a few pictures of the box I decorated for Dylan's graduation party. I forgot to take a 'before' pic, but it was basically a very large box made out of plywood. It had a slot cut out on top, and hinges so that the top would open up. I didn't want to use paper to cover it because it would have been expensive and a lot of work. So, I decided on material. I got some wooden letters to spell out cards. I covered some of these with paper and some I painted and then stamped a flourish design on them. Then I added a tassel for the grad, and some twine string to make it a little more masculine. I added a photo of the grad on the top of the box and silver stars. I thought it turned out pretty well considering I wasn't sure what I was going to do with it at first! Everyone seemed to like it though. Thank God for that! LOL!
