So much to share...

Falling into my bad blogging habits again...there is just so much to do this time of year. I am the very proud mom of this handsome boy! Last week in the horse show Jack took 2 first place medals and a 3rd place ribbon. How adorable is he!


I have some good news to share. I have joined the design team at Sketches! {by tamara}. I just love sketches and rarely do them so this will be a fun way to make time to do them regularly...not to mentions she has great sketches. Here is sketch #65.

Here is my interpretation:

I have also been asked to return to the design team at Treasures to Scrap. They have an all new forum and gallery so be sure to check it out. They are also looking to add to their digi creative team so if that is up your alley stop by to check out the details here.

I have started to dig into my JustRite Stampers and am loving them. I made these 2 cards so far and just want to thank them for being so generous with their products.


I also made this card using My Acrylic Album buttons.

The MAA Blog is being updated weekly with fun tips and tricks check it out this week to see how I made these Christmas ornaments.


I received this cool album in my DT package this month and decided to take it apart and make a wallhanging for each of my neices as part of their Christmas gift. I actually made 6 Christmas gifts from this one album...talk about a great way to save money in this ecomomy and still get my scrappy fix.






I will be back next week to post both a fall leaf and jack o lantern MAA album. Thanks for stopping by and Happy Scrapping!

Yay for Jack! I miss showing horses so much. Maybe someday I will have an opportunity to ride again. Congrats on all of your good news! Very well-deserved!

Could he BE any cuter? What a little doll. I love your projects - great idea to make a bunch of plaques instead of an album, way more bang for the buck that way.
And of course they're amazing as usual. ;)
