Twinkle, Sparkle, Shimmer....

I'm up to my eyeballs in glitter over here! This week at Sketchy Thursdays our sponsor was Art Glitter. The colors I received are Barbie's and Gala Glitz Gold. I used the Martha Stewart glue stamp pad and my acrylic stamps to create the title. I also used the awesome glue they sent with the glitter that came with a super tiny metal tip and outlined the letters to make them raised. I had fun playing around with the tip, easy to handwrite things (if you have good handwriting in the first place lol). The gold gala stuff is very fun, it's chunky glitter with little tiny gold balls in it. This page is much sparklier and prettier in ten year old is in love with it lol.

Second Chance!

Today is a second chance day at Sketchy Thursdays! Lil Scrappin Mama has spoiled us rotten this month with a Fantastic (with a capital F there see?) October kit! One lucky winner will WIN this kit!! Run over to Sketchy Thursday and see the prompt (it's not even a sketch today!). We had to create something with the kit dominant colors of orange and brown with a pop color of either teal or hot pink. I had THE perfect pictures to use. Last Sat it SNOWED. I'm not ok with that, our kids didn't even have winter coats yet! So my daughter ran out (with socks on her hands lol) and her little spring jacket and caught snowflakes for a few minutes. I love that I captured all that beautiful fall color with a punch of her hot pink jacket!

Friday Scrap Sketch Challenge!

Here's my lo for today's sketch over at Scrap Sketch. Starting to wade through some of my christmas pics....I'm going easy and starting with the "in front of the tree" poses :)

A peek at Nov!

Check out the sneak peek at Scrapbook Kit Club for the Nov kit. I just got mine in the mail this week and oh my...I wanted to drop everything I was doing and run to my scrap table. It's a BEAUTIFUL kit. Also...I know I'm getting ahead of myself but I've seen a sneak of the Dec kit and you might as well just sign up for the auto ship. Do you see what I used in this picture on my other page??? Check out the blog for more pics!

Do you ever do one of those pages that is just so *you*? This is one of those pages for me. I'd decorate my house like this in a heartbeat...but it might look like a clown lived here...and my husband would move out. So since I can't exactly decorate like this...or at least to this extreme I'll keep the whimsy to my pages :). This is based on this weeks sketch at 52 sketches and I used a whole bunch of new stuff from the big scenic route closing sale (so sad to see them go!). OH! And I used *something* on here from next months kit at Scrap Book Kit Club-can't tell you what but it's an awesome kit and not only is there enough of this something to use on this page but I'll still have plenty of it left over to use on my dt pages! Do not hesitate to pre-order the Nov kit, it's GORGEOUS!!

Sketchy Thursday Time!

This week at sketchy thursday the dt was given this gorgeous digi kit to work with. I'm not a digi scrapper but I love the patterns and colors in this and was very excited to print them off. I scrap both 8.5x11 and 12x12, just pretty much whatever mood I'm in for a page and for this one since I have a regular old printer...and one that doesn't do borderless printing to boot I did an 8.5x11 page. So anyway here's my cutie patootie nephew Cooper on vacation this summer playing in the sand. One of my favorite pics of him. Be sure and check out this week's sketch !

Ooh check it out :)
Hey I know that page!

Today's Scrapsketch!

New sketches are up on Scrapsketch...check them out! Here's my take! This is my Ellie on vacation this summer, she's such a goofball. Ellie suffers from severe excema and sadly it's starting to show in her self esteem, I'm trying to do some pages for her that celebrate her personality and remind her just how beautiful she is...even with itchy skin!
