A Shoe Store and 3 Kids....

So we are out at the shoe store for quite some time. The entire family, DH, 3 little people, and myself. We are all trying on shoes (did I mention that there are NO kid shoes/sizes at this store?). So for entertainment I hear one kid say, "Hey mom, they have dried up socks here!". And this is what I see:

Yep, you guessed it! New hats!

Cupcake Craft Challenge and some Pics!

I have taken a bit of a respite from scrapbooking the past few days to enjoy family and shopping. I did manage to complete this challenge over at Cupcake Craft Challenges, #67. The challenge was to create a gift card holder. Perfect timing as I had some gifts to give on Thanksgiving day!

These were super simple and the Cosmo Cricket papers made these a breeze to make!

And now for my are pictures of my little people while we were out at the tree farm getting our tree today. I am going to be posting more photos along with my creations in 2010, part of my new year's resolution. I think my family will enjoy that for sure! Here is Nicholas:
And my sweet Hannah (she is worried she won't get to see the horses)
And my basketball, piano playing son, Riley:
That's it for now! Ta ta and thanks for looking~ Happy Scrapping!

Die Cuts R Us Design Team Challenge

Create something girly was this week's theme. That's easy peasy! Especially when you use Sammye Jo's home made posies!!! I have some more homemade goodies from her to use up too so you will be seeing more of them soon.
I had this brilliant thought to carry a "prayer journal" in my purse. There are so many people I want to keep in my thoughts and prayers and this was a perfect way to organize them! I used my BIA and some miscellaneous Basic Grey paper I had.

A couple of Challenges

I haven't done anything really scrapbook worthy this week. I know I have taken notes about several challenges I have seen but why I can't find my notes back I will never know. It seems like they have gotten lost on the scrap desk abyss...
I did manage to get this one done for Diecuts R Us Design Team. The challenge was to Emboss something with an embossing folder. I just so happen to have quite a collection of these puppies so I whipped mine out.

Last night I participated in a cookie posting challenge at SNR: Digital Delights by Louby Loo. This was their first event there. For an hour we posted our most favorite cookie recipies. I was so hungry when we finished! We got a free digi image to play with in the end. The image below was provided for a challenge. I didn't win but I had fun coloring it in with my copics, learning how to blend better.

That is it for now!

I warned you!

I had thought that if I could avoid the nap I could get more done and lookey here! I did! First up is a sketch from Liz and her people at The Scrappiest. I am a sucker for sketches and this one is no different! Mucho Mojo here:

I took the Sassafras Lass Monstrosity line of paper and diecut stickers from Paper Popsicles that can be found here and used it to talk about my favorite soft drink, Coca Cola.

This next project is a journal for Barbara at work. She is leaving on a special vacation to the Dominican Republic in a couple weeks and she likes to journal during her trips. The paper can be found here at Paper Popsicles. The Zva bling and the flowers are from a couple of kits from Paper Popsicles. Barbara...NO PEEKING!
I think that is it for today....I have a circle journal to wrap up so it gets in the mail but I won't be taking pics of that one until the end....
Happy Scrapping!

I have Friday Fun!!!

Let's start off with the FREEBIE FRIDAY at Paper Popsicles! Yup! That's right! We are continuing these beauties. Today we are offering card house template. Isn't it cute?!?!? You can use these for cards or for embellishments on a layout. Just decorate and go! In order to receive the shaped card template you must go into the store and order it. It is located in the category shaped card templates. You will receive this in BOTH .jpeg and .pdf file format.
Our templates are just the outline of the open card so you can easily print this on your cardstock or patterned paper, cut it out, fold it, decorate it.... The image you see to the left is the template cut out on white cardstock and folded in two.
Show us your house card next week during our Show n Tell!
Next up are a couple of cards for different challenges I have been coming across. This first card is for a challenge at Die Cuts R Us Design Team. I didn't have a Nestable diecutting set so I did the next closest thing. I also made this my RED color challenge at Paper Popsicles. The message board there always has fun challenges and lots of prizes so being a challenge geek, i am always in the mood for that!
This card works for the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog. It is a T shaped card with fall colors for a unique gratitude card. I love that I am getting to use my new CB folders! The paper is from the Paper Popsicles store.
Thanks for Looking and Happy Scrapping! There is more to come today for long as i don't succomb to the "happy nappy" fairy!
