And we all know that crafty is better than crappy!!!
Lots n lots to share with you today.......the bug bit me at some point last night and I have just been itchin to get something done today......ahhhhhhhhhhhh but life had other plans (of course!!!!) and threw a curveball at me in the form of teenage dating drama! OHhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Brrrrrrrrrrrrrrrother!!!! I really MUST share this story tomorrow. Seriously :)
So in between doing laundry and dealing with this I did get some scrapping and stuff done. Hopefully tomorrow I can pull out my cricut and play around with it some!!
Speaking of which, I gotta show you this deal!!! You know the special holiday carts that came out this year? Well our local kroger had them in the holiday section of the store. And right now all thier holiday stuff is marked wayyyyy down to make room for valentines stuff. So I found this Thanksgiving cartridge....pardon the poor photo quality...I am on my laptop in a dark corner of the living room
Ok.....onto scrappy type endeavors :)
Remember me telling you about Crafty Hazelnuts blog? She has a card making challenge that just went live Jan 1. And her challenge each week is to make a Christmas card using whatever theme or recipe she supplies. Very cool!! So this should give ALL of us a fighting chance to get a bit of a head start on out Christmas card making. And lets be honest...we all have these beautiful papers that we aren't quite ready to put away and lots of scraps from our Christmas layouts that we need to put to good use. So I dug thru some bits and pieces and came up with this......
Next up is this weeks sketch challenge from Twisted Sketches....I LOVE them!!!! They give you a sketch to run with and toss in a little twist to add to your layout. And Psssssssssst they are having a Dt call right now too!!! Here is this weeks sketch....
I love,love, love this!!!! I used a combination of Echo Parks Little Boy and Jillibean soup. Look how well those corragated alphas worked on this!!!! And I cut a teeny circle around the little green VW and bordered with the blue and white paper and cut another circile and used it for my "O"
One of my scrappy goals/resolutions for the year is to USE THOSE SCRAPS!!!! We all have tons of em.....and I want nwe stuff so I gotta use my old stuff to make room. Granted this isn't old stuff....I have had it a week.....LOL. But I love it so much that it inspired me to want to use every single bit of it. So here is just one more tag.....lol. Perfect for journaling on and I am thinking it will be used for a baby themed layout :)
