Had a blast last weekend at the Scrapbook Expo. On Friday I did some shopping but spent most of my day and night scrapbooking. The best deal of the day wasthe $35.00 AMM Tote Bag I bought. It was filled with grungeboard by Tim Holtz and tons (and I mean tons) of bling and stamps by Heidi Swap. I love it all and can not wait to use it! So here are a few layouts I created.
Pool Fun uses the Creative Memories Tropical Page Addition Kit. Cute- huh?
Check out those HUGE chipboard brackets...Fabulous!
This was a Home Tweet Home Kit I purchased at the Expo. Just changed it up to be For the Birds. Also added lots of ink and goggly eyes on those adorable birdies.
This Storytellers Club Kit is so fun. I added that funky chipboard border at the bottom. Used a really pretty sparkly ink to make it stand out.
Wohoo!! Congrats to Dee and Lisa for coming closest to the actual number of ribbons in my guessing game. The container contained 193 ribbons. Ladies please email me your addresses so I can send your goodies to you. Thanks to everyone for playing!
I promised a ribbon game a few weeks ago and here it is!! Wohoo! After I received my ribbon ring and organized it I decided I had to much extra ribbon. I would like to share some ribbon with you, my followers.

The 2 people who come closest to the actual number (without going over) will win a grab bag full of yummy ribbons.

I decided to join YMBD's September Challenge. The challenge is to make 30 cards in 30 days. Each day has a certain item that your card must have. On the above cards I had to use eylets, chipboard, a star, and a bow. These cards I had to use a tag, a flourish, a heart, and a tree.
For these cards I had to use bling, brads, a decorative border, and I had to emboss something. The dark green background in dry embossed with a flowery design.
On these cards I had to use stripes, ink, a 3-D sticker, and a digital stamp.
Thanks for looking and Stay tuned for more cards soon!
Even in the Winter. These picture were taken while camping at Dana Point President's Weekend. The tidepools were amazing. We found all kinds of neat sea creatures. And this kit by Storytellers Club is probably one of my all time favorites.

Thought I would share with you the October online issue of Lasting Moments CM really has come a long way in the scrapping world. This issue has great paper and digital layouts along with some tips and sketches. I love the sketches, they make doing a lo easy peasy! Check it out and let me know what you think.
This was created for the Saturday Scraplift Challenge at YMBD. It showcases my goofy boys in their 3D glasses. I used a really old Storytellers Club Kit, bazzill, my treading water punch, and alpha stickers. I hand drew and cut the big Red Mat. Updated to add both pages.
My crop on Saturday was a blast! And this dessert received RAVE reviews so I thought I would share it with my fellow bloggers. I can't take credit for it though. I found it through YMBD's discussion boards.
A member there posted it and boy am I glad she did!

I made this layout for the YMBD Saturday Scraplift Challenge. I am pretty happy with the results. I did some hand stitching (the pink florishes) and also used my new tool, The I-TOP to create the really cute big brad in the center of the flower. This picture was taken in March 09 right after I received my glasses. I haven't had glasses since my Freshman year of High school! LOL!
