Just wanted to share :)

Hi guys, it's almost March! Eek, where does the time go. Anyways, I just remembered some LO's I made a few weeks ago that never made it onto the blog so I thought I'd share. I created these when 2Peas was having their CHA social, which was "runway" themed. And "B is for..." actually won and I got a really awesome and generous prize package. They didn't specify what it would be when the winners were announced, just that we won imagine my surprise when I opened the box to find a ton of brand new Webster's Pages CHA goodies! No paper, but everything else - their stitched tags, a bunch of flowers and berries, chipboard buttons, sparkler, etc. Really really very generous. I was so happy!! So here are my layouts:

"B is for..." which I entered in the "Accessorize" challenge, which was to use embellishments:

Next is "Oh, That Shirt!", and it was for the "When in doubt, wear red" challenge - basically, you had to use lots of red...obviously, I did :) BTW, in case you can't tell, that's DS's actual shirt that I cut the picture out of and scrapped...I thought it would be fun and make for good memories to preserve it:

And lastly, I have "Happy Fall" - this was for the "All about layers" challenge, which I think is self-explanatory:

So there you have it. For all of these, I was using up my Sassafras stash...maybe to make room for some of the new CHA, oh let's say, "Sweetly Smitten"? ;)

A House Mini Album...Life is Good!!

Ok, I have something very very special to gush about's this House mini album by Scrapmatts. The cover has many intricate pieces that you can decorate and then assemble, almost like a doll house. I can't begin to express how much fun I had with it, and just how amazing and unique this album is - a pure joy to work with! I used the "Life Is Good" line by Echo Park (you guys know by now I have "thing" for Echo Park, right?? LOL). The warm colors and the house/family theme was perfect for this mini - I decided to do pictures that were all taken at home and that really show what it's like to live here! Enjoy my barrage of pictures :)

Graphic 45 Submissions

As I mentioned before, I am applying for the G45 DT call. I think it's no secret that I adore their papers, and all the new items they're coming out with. I love the slightly edgy style, and it so fits me. In general, I much prefer pp that has larger images that can be cut out, and no one does it better than G45. And here they are, in chronological order (of when I completed them), my 15 favorite G45 projects that I am submitting as my application (and of course I have more projects and several cards on MY PAGE on the G45 ning site):

1. Once Upon A Springtime (close-ups HERE)

2. Fabulous (close-ups HERE)

3. The Fairies (close-ups HERE)

4. Fairy Princess (close-ups HERE)

5. Pen In Hand - Mini Album (close ups and inside pages HERE), and HERE is a different G45 mini.

6. Imagination (close-ups HERE)

7. By The Pool (close-ups HERE)

8. A Will Of Steel (close-ups HERE)

9. A Proper Gentleman (close-ups HERE)
