Too Cool....

Well not really - the weather has been really hot actually and I really wish that Ray would let me use the A/C that we spent a fortune putting in......

I don't have alot to share this week at all. I just haven't been anywhere near as scrappy minded as I have wanted to be. Thought I would share this one from the Top 50 CC which just ended.

The challenge was to use some recycled items on your page. I kinda went to town on this. My base is an old manilla folder that I ripped in half. I am not sure what important paperwork is now loose in the filing cabinet, but I am sure that Ray will let me know sooner or later ;D I also ripped up an old sun protector thing for the car. The string was from a tag off some clothing, and the cards and the bulldog clips were just laying around. The staples and dabomb post it are just regular office supplies. The alphas and the tape are the only 'true' scrappy supplies - oh and the glimmer mist. I really need to get a better photo - but when the weather has been good, I haven't been home to get one. Grrrr.

Also - I just paid a visit to my LSSs' blog and discovered this:
- if you want to win this

...all you have to do is go here, leave a Birthday wish, follow the Scrapville blog and spread the word about this give away and Janet's birthday sale. That is pretty easy right!?

Nothing else for today - TFL

No tears

This is my LO for the dare challenge over at Top50.






I had a lot of fun with this. The LO had to be grungy, use a rainbow, use wire and only one piece of cardstock and 1 piece of patterned paper. This took ages to create, but I do love the effect of the rainbow being unzippered from the clouds.

Have good one all,

New LO

This is a pic of Matthew taken when he was 6 months old. I have always loved this pic and found the Annalee papers at my2angels to be really great for showcasing it. I basically cut the middle out of the top part of the paper and let the photo come through like a photo frame effect. The flowers were cut on the cricut and layered on top of eachother and slightly inked to kind of blend in with the page...but still stand out...if you know what I mean. The charms and brads are also available at my2angels.

Also: I am a bit slow in posting....but check out this awesome give away here.
It is amazing!
Have a good one everyone.

Some new LOs

Hi all. A new month brings with it a new set of challenges. The monthlies are up at Top50 and are sure to bring in some interesting results. My challenge this month is based on this LO and can be found here.
Basically I really wanted to stretch everyone out of their comfort zone and see some stamping on your LOs....go on give it a go! I dare you - it isn't easy!
The prize for this challenge is a $20 voucher to Wicked Princess.
Speaking of dare challenges.
Every month at Top50, we put the call out for 4 criteria that we, the DT, must use on a LO or card - the catch is - whoever selects the criteria must do the challenge too. This is a fun challenge with nothing to win other than prooving that yes - you can do the dare. OK -there might be a RAK involved too ;) - Why don't you see if you have what it takes to succeed.
Next is actually a LO for Vicki's sketch challenge last month. I started this LO really hating it, but a bit of glimmermist and a quick raid of Sam's stash a bit of stitching and voilla - one LO that I am really happy with. (Fank you Sam!)
Well not much more to add. Hope everyone is well. Hugs all round.
PS: Yet again Blogger will not let me format this properly.....GRRRRRRR!
