MTS October

Have you seen the October kit from More than Scrapbooking yet? The picture really doesnt do it justice. The Bohemia 2 papers are stunning and the the pretty bits of crochet, lace and firey fiber are the icing on the cake. Plus there is a cats eye ink AND paper bag album! And the big secret is.... (its under $25) Here is a list of all the goodies you get.

Yes I sound like a salesman. Yes I do design for the company(Obviously) Yes I suck at scanning layouts (hello crooked!) But this kit really is a fabulous deal and absolutely perfect for autumn. I used alpha stamps and the kit only for these creations.

Let me count the ways

Hambly, Oh Hambly How do I love thee... let me count the ways......

I was over all AllyScraps chatting away when I noticed that there was NEW Hambly in the store. Ohhh man am I excited! I seriously trying to wait a week(or 2) so I can ship it with my dt kit, but Im having serious problems with self control. I just want to put it in my cart and take it home. Is that so wrong? Doesnt a girl deserve some brand spanking new hambly? I think so.

Ive become addicted to the overlays lately. There are so many things you can do with them. You can cut them in pieces or trim what you'd like. They can be painted, inked, layered, stapled, sewn, used as backgrounds for clear pages, rubbed with alcohol inks, tucked under or over a photo, used as a journal block, stamped on with staz on, distressed, punched, and die cut. They are awesome!

Its also time for a new *insert cartoon horn noise* caardvarks challenge Check out the blog for the hilariously titled "Do these pants make my chips look big" challenge by our own Lesley This chippy here is my card for the challenge. I needed another excuse to use my Breakfest at Tiffany's stamp. I so love that movie... okay well anything Audrey Hepburn

Challenge day

Im still trying to get over a nasty cold, so today I decided to take it easy. I tried to not leave the house, but my husband insisted on making me go out for Chinese food (which was mighty good). I punished him by making him drop me at the lss for a half hour. He didnt mind one bit. I got some fun embellies

So I got home and scrapped the day away while my honey played playstation. Sometimes I just love knowing he is here and having fun. It was nice. Since I had extra scrappy time and couldnt print the pictures I need for dt work (I bought the wrong cartridge...DOH!) I decided to do a few challenges.

The first one I did was Color my World's 2nd challenge. I made this funky red and blue painty layout. I also used painters tape and a page out of a notebook

The second challenge I did was for the How Much is too Much? Its challenge 51 (10 elements, 10 goals) I think this one will be fun to look at in 10 years and see just how many actually hold true.

My mom is doing better. Thank you to those who prayed for her. She is relaxing and enjoying a special trip for her 10 year anniversary.

Mini Cards

We have a micro challenge going on over at Caardvarks this weekend! It is a challenge to make mini cards. I had a blast the other day making them. Not only are they fun, but they are very inexpensive. Mine are actually made with index cards(You know... the 3x5 kind that cost a quarter for 100.) and scraps of paper and embellies.

They can be used for so many things

*Tuck it in a coat pocket/briefcase for your love
*A child's lunchbox
*punch a hole and add ribbon for a cute bag tag
*Add to a bouquet of flowers
*Staple to a bag of goodies
*tape on top of a present

Here are my little cards. Checkout the caardvarks "Honey I Shrunk the Cards" gallery for more minis

Im in a funky funky mood today. Im exhausted. I had to work at 9am to do the QSC we didnt do on wednesday. I never did get a nap today. I just cant sleep. Im trying to keep myself distracted by scrapping. It isnt working.

My mom has been in the hospital all weekend. She isnt sure, but she thinks she had a stroke. (or several little ones) The MRI was showed no problems... which is great. Its really scaring me. They did let her come home this evening, but Im still very nervous. If you are the praying type... can you send a few her way?

Bond: James Bond

I was supposed to go in today and do the QSC. I woke up late... too late. I realized I was supposed to be there in 20 minutes. I jumped in the shower and then did a random search for my phone to tell them Id be about 15 minutes late. Low and behold a message from my partner calling me off. I was psyched! Its nice to have an unexpected day off. I did a little scrapping, made my husband a big dinner and then my BIL came over and we watched a movie. Casino Royale. Man what a great action flick. Its very fast paced and exciting. Very Bond... and my oh my Daniel Craig. Is he a perfect Bond or what? Have you seen this bit of man candy?

Ummm hummm......

Yes Im still up

It's like 5am and I cant seem to sleep. Im used to being up late but its kinda ridiculous. It was a long day. Work was very draining

When I got home I locked myself in my room to work on a few more projects for the sticker shock caardvarks challenge that goes up tonight. Frances Meyer sent us this gigantic bag of FUN, fabulous stickers to use for the challenge. So far Ive made 7 cards and 1 layout and I still have so many more to play with. I also got to play with my wicked cool Jim Morrison stamp. I love the Doors

Playing with my Morrison stamp makes me want to get out my cds and rock out to the Doors. Im resisting the urge as doing that would keep me up even later and make me more hyper(I shouldn't even be blogging... I should be in bed bed bed... but NO... Im sitting here watching Almost Famous for like the 5th time and playing pogo) OKay that's it. Im going to try to go to bed (again) Night all :) Or should I say Good Morning
