All sales are good til the next one gets posted. You can combine orders too... she adds them up and sends you a paypal invoice at the end of the day. If I were you Id check the blog out every couple hours to see what she has in store. Right now kits are $13. (even the new Basic Grey Curio kit)
When you have a toddler watching them explore the world is an awesome experience. Something as simple as falling leaves becomes an adventure.
Last week was rough. Back teeth were coming in and Aubrey was miserable. She was a fevered, crabby, cranky mess. She was so hot I took her outside in the brisk fall air to cool her off. That is when she discovered the leaves....
We had an hour of crunching, tossing, kicking, squealing fun playing in the leaf pile in our front yard. Of course I took my camera and got lots of fun shots of her frolicing around. She felt much better when we came in a she took a nice loooong nap.
Speaking of teething.... have you seen the new issue of ScrapStreet ezine this month?? Check out Melissa's blog bay section of the NOVEMBER issue for a write up on Scrap That Baby!

This weekend I bought my first ever digi stamps. Ive always used freebie images but this time I couldnt resist. Ive been coveting the digi stamps from Some Odd Girl for quite sometime. They are just so darned adorable.
I also noticed they have a challenge blog so I decided to play. I scribbled down their challenge... to use a digi image to create a background. V cool. I decided to use my own digi stamp as a background. I made a few funky doodle stamps a few years ago to sell and just never got around to it. Since I was printing digi images I decided to print mine and use it along with my Faerie Mae odd girl.
Upon further review of the challenge (the next day) I realized I was supposed to repeat a design to make background. Oh well. Shows that mommy brain wasnt functioning at 3am when I scribbled my notes. Then I figured... what the hell... I'll submit anyways. What can they do... kick me out or something :)
I also played with the early bird challenge for November SOD digi days! The challenge was to create dimension and add at least 2 items that were dimensional. I created 2 cards for this challenge... I just need to decide which one to submit.
In this card using the Princess Mae stamp, the lil princess is raised with pop dots. I also lifted the edge of the circle and used dimensional Prima roses and glitz frosting
and this mini card uses a Tiny Tia freebie that I snagged a month or so ago. Both Tia and the flower are pop dotted off the card. I also used plastic canvas and tied some of the Whisker Graphics divine twine thru it.
Im sure you will be seeing more Odd girls from me soon. They are just darling! I cant wait to get more. If you like them as much as I do, check out the website for more cuteness and a monthly fun freebie stamp.
The new kit at Catch the Moments debuted this week. You must go over and check out its vintage yumminess. Its a nice mix of Basic Grey Curio, AC Classics, new fabric thickers, bloomers and brads. Its a steal at $18.
On Sunday night Matt and I went on a date night! (with a babysitter and everything... trust me that never happens) We went to see the Tosh tour twenty ten! Daniel Tosh is seriously hysterical. I love his show Tosh.0 on comedy central and he did not disappoint with his stand up. Since the show was on campus at the U of A I expected us to be some of the "older" fans, but I was happily surprised that was not the case. The 2 openers were also funny. I did get a little tipsy before we arrived (um hello ....babysitter!!) but since Matt bought the tickets as a surprise for my birthday I figured it was time to completely cut loose for once. It was nice to go out and see a show and have drinks like we used to (even though I missed my Aubs by the time we made our way home)
I also finished my weekly project for Cookin Up Creations this weekend. I was assigned a layout for week 2 and I used some of the super cool intricacy papers sent to me from Midnight Oil scrapbook designs. Here is my layout using the pink flower intricacy.
The cool thing about MOSD is they are made with 99% post consumer recycled materials and they are ALL made right here in the USA. Very cool Midnight Oil, very cool
Hey all! This weekend I found out I made the design team over at Catch the Moments! Im so very excited to get started!

Its time once again for another reveal at Cookin Up Creations! This month we have been sponsored by Midnight Oil Designs. They very generously sent us an variety of their great products. The design team will spend this month showing you all the fantastic thing you can create using their intricacy papers, acrylic albums, and embellishment kits.
This week i was assigned a mini album. I decided to use the Midnight Oil "Clearly designed Show Off album" It is a 4x6 acrylic accordian album with pre-drilled holes. I layered hambly transparencies so i could add color and still enjoy the clear effect. Also from Midnight Oil: white stars punched out from the star intricacies and punchies and ribbons from the embellishment kit.
I has so much fun creating this album! I used our camp crafts volunteers photos taken in the photo booth back in 2008. This was the first clear album Ive ever done (and the first accordian album) It wont be the last. I have my eye on another clear album from Midnight Oil. Hopefully I can do another one soon
Yesterday was my birthday. I turned 32. 30 FRICKIN 2.
How the heck did that happen already? The though of it makes me feel a little old.... but then I think about it and I realize its really not so old at all. (especially since my husband will be 40 soon *evil laugh*)
I almost forgot it was my birthday due to the halloween hangover I was experiencing. My birthday was very uneventful (no cake, no presents I did end up going out to dinner with my dad, his gf, aubrey and dh)
At least Aubrey and I had a great weekend scrapping, watching football and doing all kinds of halloween stuff.
