More from me

I have been a busy girl this week - lots going on both personal and scrapbooking. But I did manage to get 3 layouts done - here they are.
This is my Entry this week into the Bad Girls Top Design Academy - this weeks Class was all about "White Space"

That is the page I submitted - but I actually did 2 pages for the contest this next one I chose NOT to enter (I like it - just not enough I guess)

And I also made this page this week for a couple of challenges, In Just Scrappin the challenge was to Layer High, In Treasured Scrapbooking we had to use a TV show as the Title to a LO, and in Scrapbook Heaven we had to sew on a LO and sew on an embellishment. I did all of the above with this LO - created for all 3 challenges.

So Girly and Dragonfly

ok here is my next entry for the Bad Girls Top Designer Contest

And these pictures were taken yesterday at my work - I just love Dragonflies and I found this poor deceased one on the sidewalk and was just amazed at the beauty - so I thought I would share - be sure to click on the picture to see the full details!

Hope you are all having a great weekend - and if you get a chance pop on into Fiskateers this weekend for the crop - lots of fun and prizes.

Happy Days & Flamingo Love

ok I interupt this scrappy blog for a brief pause of Happy Inspiration. I read on my Fiska-friend Annie's Blog ( )today about inspiration and how it could come from so many places. Well that got me thinking - I am inspired almost everyday by the overwhelming love and sharing going on each day in the crafting world - what an amazing thing this is. Here is some proof of that dear friend Cristal/Pinky made this gorgeous mini acrylic card/album - I was so inspired by it - I absolutely loved the way it turned out (check it out )
She knew I would love it - she made it with me in mind - it had one of my signature symbols all over it ~cherries. I cried when it arrived on my doorstep - she is so sweet and thoughtful! Then Today Karen B from Just Scrappin (my favorite place on the Net) makes me this adorable personalized blinkie for my siggy and now my blog

Holy Cow - is this perfect for me or what?? I am the Flamingo Queen!! My collection is growing and it makes me so happy - just look at all of this Flamingo Love I have acquired recently

So this is the view I have at my computer desk every day - and it represents such LOVE and sharing - it inspires me every single day!! Ok one more thing before I close this - I got another surprise in the mail today. I recieved a box of happy Scrappy mail (the best kind) I am now the proud owner of my first cropodile (now more hammering) and a whole bunch of other scrappy delights - you would think I was in scrappy overload - but the very best thing in that box today was this...
Oh My Goodness - is this not the most adorable little coin purse you ever have seen? I squealed with delight - yes little gifts filled with BIG LOVE - it is a Happy Day.
Thank you to all my scrapping friends out there in cyberworld - you inspire me, you enlighten me, you lift me up, and most of all you love cup runneth over - THANK YOU!!

Scrapping again

Photobucket Photobucket

After some much needed time off for a family ordeal I finally got back into some scrapping. The first Page is for a BIG contest over at Bad Girls Kits Forum ***see above*** The Challenge was to use their layering techniques.

Then this page was created for BOTH Just Scrapping & Creative Scrappers. In Just Scrapping we were to creat a Fall/Halloween Layout without using any orange and we had to use paint - in Creative Scrapping it was a Sketch challenge using a new technique (using punches).

Hope you enjoy them!

Productive Time Off

ok so I was off work the last 2 days and I scrapped - I ended up completeing 3 layouts. 2 of them are for the second chance contest in TS - so I had to follow specific requirements - but I am happy with them. Here they are...
Round 5

Round 6

now I have NEVER scrapped anything to do with my Ex-husband...but the journaling prompts made me think of Broken FairyTales - so that is what I chose.

Then this page was created for a Guest Design Team entry over at Creative Scrappers (one of my new playgrounds) It is mostly a sketch site and we had to use a sketch for the contest - here is what I did...

I hope you enjoy looking!! It is my Monday - UGH - so back to work for me. I hope you all have a great weekend!!

Yep thankgoodness it is Friday - for most of you it is Monday - but this is my Friday. Labor Day weekend was kind of a bust around here - too many Hurricanes around. So it was a long slow weekend - and I managed to get some scrapping challenges in. I still need to work on my 2nd chance contest entry for TS - yeah I was eliminated from the contest last week (BOO HOO). I am completely proud of my ability to make it as far as I did - there are so many Super Talents in that group - whew!! Ok - then onto the next pages...
