geez i'm a postin fool today!

Ok so I did another project using the Addicted Scrappers kit. It's a sweet little card! I used sketch #55 from Sketch this Such fun to make a card from a lo sketch! Thats not something I've ever done before!!! Wahoo!! lol! Ok so it's 11:10 and I'm goin to bed! I know thats amazing but I'm exhausted. Sophie's still not sleeping through the night and 3 am is gonna roll around way too fast! Oh geez I almost forgot I need to post the picture! lol! so here it is and I'll be back soon with more creations!



July at Addicted Scrappers

Oh my there is such yumminess and fun happening over there! I'm stoked that I get to work with the "Sunshine and Popsicles" kit (isn't that a cute name!) Here is a look at both kits for July, if you want one snag it quick I know they'll go quick this month!

"Sunshine and Popsicles"

July "Grafton" kit. This kit is so yummo too. I had a hard time choosing which one I wanted to play with. Poor James doesn't get many pages made about him anymore and this kit would be great! Although I'm sure that Susannah will show us a wonderful way to use it for girls, as she always does!

So those are the kits. Go check them out. She has subscriptions too, and she works with you if you have some sort of special request! Can't go wrong with that!!

Also check out the forum this month. We are going to have a crop, contests, and tons of challenges! We want to make the next 3 months as jam packed full of fun as we possibly can! Our new DT is sure to surprise with all the goodness coming your way! I'd love to have you come on over and check it out! Plus we'll be doing a Guest DT call for September soon, so watch out for that!

OH DUH!! I almost totally forgot that I already did a LO with the kit! lol!! Here is the page, details to follow.......
Ok so everything except, the white and black scallop pieces are in the kit, or kit add-on. Is this not so much fun? I love Cosmo Cricket! They always have such awesome stuff!! Now I'm not in love with the picture of me but Sean asked me to do a page with it because he really likes it. Said he loves how my lips look :blush: lol! It's amazing what you can do with a little lip gloss! So this page was made using a sketch from Sketches-r-us which is one of my very favorite sketch sites! But this is the very first time I have used one of the sketches! I have like a bagillion printed off I just can't ever seem to get to use them!
Alright I have to stop blogging for now. Ok one more thing. I've lost another 5 pounds this week. I need to go update my little ticker thingy over there! But yeah I'm pretty stoked! Alright done for real. Thanks again for stopping by!

Piggy Tales

This card I used a "barn door" and it opens up to show this, this card is CPS #66. Paper Popsicles used it for their sketch of the month for June.
it's hard to tell but I put a "pig tail" under the train to make it pop. This card was made using an awesome sketch from Kazan.

Used another barn door and I hung the train from gross grain ribbon. This is also sketch #2 by Laura from 2 sketches 4 you

This month at Scrap4Life we had the pleasure of working with Piggy Tales products. Last night Brandon, from Pt, was there chatting with us. I totally missed it because James was being a terror and I'm totally bummed. But I still got to work with their stuff and it was great! I've only ever played with it once before and that was with the NSD kit. Before that I'd never used any of their products! I must say that I love their stuff! The papers this year are eco friendly and thats just cool!! So here is what I created with my pack using the Steadfast Tin Soldier collection (which was a perfect choice for me, James LOVES trains!!)
Thanks for stopping by!

aaah peace for a while

The kids are both in bed. I dunno what to do with myself! lol! I know that I need to update my blog with some stuff I've been workin on though!!

First I want to congratulate Dawn, and Gina for making the cut for Addicted Scrappers dt. We had TONS of awesome talent apply and really had a hard time narrowing it down. In sisterly fashion we went back and forth but in the end agreed that these girls would do the job! We'll be doing the call again in 3 months, so if you're interested join the site! One of our biggest things is being active on the boards. I feel bad cuz the last few weeks I haven't been around a bunch but I've had a good excuse! So congrats girls!!

So what have I been workin on??? CARDS! I have been in love with makin them lately. I can't show you a bunch yet cuz I'm waitin on a DT reveal to be released, but I do have a few I can show ya! Oh and some LO's that I made using Piggy Tales, who is the Manuf. of the Month at S4L. Ok let the pictures begin!

this is of my sweet boy, who will be 3 next month! I can't believe that. He's such a cute booger!

This one we had to make a layout about Dad. Since I didn't have any recent pics with Sean and the kids, so I made this. I love the simplicity of it!

This card was made for a new challenge site that I found through another blog. But I can't for the life of me remember what it is. I bookmarked it last night, but its not on my links. =( So this week's challenge is a sketch, it's a stamping challenge blog, so if you know what it is PLEASE tell me! Anyways here's the card made using Piggy Tales stuff from the NSD kit at S4L. I LOVE that kit!

so enjoy this for now, i'll be back to post the rest of my cards soon I hope!
