Holy Moly! Long Time, No Blog!!

But I'm here with a rather longish update! So, get a Coke or your beverage of choice and get comfy! lol

First off, IMAGINISCE had a ton of giveaways on their blog during CHA week. (Actually, when aren't they giving stuff away?) This was the post....

We'll be announcing winners of our week long CHA keep coming back each day to enter a different giveaway. Today, we'd like to give a big THANK YOU to our class sponsors. So many companies were generous in providing us product so we wanted to list them here. We'll send you a sample box of all the product they donated to us too!! Just make an effort to jump over to their Facebook pages and tell them "thanks for supporting Imaginisce CHA classes!!" Here's a list of links. You can enter to win for each Facebook page you comment on...we'll even throw in an i-rock tool and i-top tool to make it worth your time!!

Big thanks goes out to the following companies:
Provo Craft - Cricut Paper Trimmer
Tombow - Adhesive
Therm-o-Web - Foam Squares
Ranger - Glossy Accents

I did it, and I won!!! :0) I got a big old box filled with a Cricut paper trimmer, 2 Tombo liquid glues, 2 Tombo adhesive runners, 2 packages of Therm-o-web 3D foam squares, 2 bottles on glossy accents, and 4 Color Box cat's eyes....and...the whole bunch of the Birthday Bash collection from Imaginisce!!! Exciting, right?!

Here's something I made with my goodies...

If you want to see all the pictures...and maybe leave me some can go HERE!!

So, over at TALLYSCRAPPER we are having So You Think You Can Scrap challenges. The challenge this time was hosted by yours truly!! :0) This is my layout for my own challenge...

Speaking of Tally, I'm still getting a lot of use out of July's awesome kit!! Laurajean is hosting a card challenge right now where you have to use your scraps and follow a few more guidlines. This is my card!

I also have a blog post up of a tutorial on how to make a pocket card. This is the card I made...again using the Tallyscrapper July Kit!

I guess that's all for now! Later!! :0)

CPS Card Sketch 176 &Tallyscrapper July Kit

CPS has another card sketch up! And I figured what a better way to kill two birds with one stone. (Lawd, that sounds awful!) So, I used Tallyscrapper's July Kit, "Watson" and the sketch to create this.....

If you wanna give the sketch a go, just click here! And if you want Tally's July kit, just click here!

Oh yeah...better pictures of the Tag Mini Album from yesterday!!

July Kit from Tallyscrapper!!!

I got it today!! I was so excited, I actually stopped the mailman in another part of the neighborhood! lol This is the kit "Watson":

After A LOT of running around today, I sat down (okay, I stood at the counter...I'm a standing scrapper!) and started playing. I only got 3 things done, but they are pretty darn cute things....if I may say so myself! :0)

Two cards....

...and a mini album!

This is only one was still wet. So, I'll upload another picture later of the other side. I even cut the tags from the box the kit came in! Oh yeah!! lol

I know this post is short and sweet, but I'm exhausted! I have some kind of virus and I'm supposed to be resting. I've been on my feet and going since 8:30 this morning. It is now almost 8pm and I am just now sitting down!
Catch ya'll later! **muah**

So Not a Card Maker....

...but that doesn't stop me from tryin'!! lol Practice makes perfect....right?! :0)

Anywho....I came upon CPS-Card Sketches somehow. (It was through Tally, but my brain isn't giving me any more info...) And seeing as how I can use any help I can get with bettering my card making skills, I figured this would be a great place to add to my faves! Once a week they give you a sketch and a chance to win a prize!! And throughout the week,they post inspiration using said sketch! Right up Nicole's aisle!! lol So, these are the cards I made using this week's sketch, #174.

I know they aren't the bomb-diggity of all cards, but I don't think they're that bad.

Hey, hey, hey!!

It's Tuesday! I'd lie and say I've been busy since Thursday and that's why I haven't blogged. But the truth is that I had a pretty "boring" weekend. So, there wasn't much to blog about.
Let's see....Saturday we went to a friend's for her 2 year olds birthday. The kiddos had a great time. Sunday night we went to see fireworks. Ummm, yeah, that's about as exciting as my weekend got.
I did do some creating, though! I made the following layout for Susan's "When You Wish Upon a Star" challenge over at Tally.

Then, I made this layout for Sarah's "Color Inspiration" challenge.

Now, I do realize that it is rather plain. However, I'm not happy with any of the alphas I have to add a title...and I just dunno what else to add to "spruce it up".

In other news, Imaginisce just won't stop with the "Birthday Bash" giveaways!! They are having another one on their blog today....and for the rest of the week!! What are you waitin' for?! Get over there and check it out!!

Box Of Goodies!

My dear friend Cristal (aka Pinky) sent me a message this weekend asking for my addy. She said she couldn't let a friend use glue sticks when she works for an adhesive company. So, she was going to send me some Helmar glue. Silly girl sent me the postal confirmation information and it said it was for a flat rate box. Uhhh, glue in a flat rate box?! I knew she was up to something!! Yesterday I found out what an awesome something she was up to!! She sent me a whole box of scrappy goodness...along with some Helmar 450 and Liquid Scrap Dots!! Whoop-whoop!! Let me tell you, I haven't had a box of scrappy stuff sent to me for a VERY long time. It (on top of making the DT at Tally for a second time) totally made my day! Cristal's kindness brings me to my next topic of blogging today...

Imaginisce has their July sketch up (by Tammy Wark). You could win $75 worth of product if you create a card or layout based on that sketch by July 8th and post it to their blog! The full details are here! Well, it just so happens that Cristal was their guest blogger yesterday....and....she sent me some Imaginisce papers, ribbons, and chipboard stickers in that box!! :0) So, this is my take on the sketch...

The picture is a bit off in color...and the card is a bit plain...but I think it's pretty darned cute! lol I might brainstorm later and see what else I can come up with before I submit this.
I created another card using that paper for a friend's son's birthday on Saturday.

Almost a Year...

...since I last made a blog post! SOOOOO much has happened in that year!! So much, in fact, that I'd have to write a novel to tell ya'll about it. I'll condense no particular order...

I just made the DT over at Tally Scrapper!! Can I get a whoop-whoop?! The "contest" started on the 15th....I decided to try out on the 27th! I managed to get my 3 layouts started, finished, and posted all by the ended at midnight last night! Wanna talk about being lucky and loved!! I was very shocked this morning...and very happy!! I can not wait to get back into scrapping and working for Tally again!! :0)

Let's see what else...all of my young people had a birthday recently. I now have a 14, 12, 9, and 6 year old!! My oldest starts highschool this year....and my "baby" is now a 1st grader! I really wish I knew where time went!--My husband and I legally separated and will be divorced soon. That seems to upset a lot of people for a variety of reasons, but I am feeling much better about life....and will be relieved when it's all said and done!!--I've been working on (here and there) losing weight. Last year at this time I was swaying between 195 and 205. I am very proud to say that I have been pretty steadily at 165 for a few months now...sometimes down to 160. My goal is to reach about 150 and stay there! That should put me at an 8 or 10...perfect size for me!--I did a photo shoot recently that had a Mad Hatter theme. It was a blast!!! MMPhotography did the shoot...and Maureen was fab to work with! These are a few of my faves...

I guess that's pretty much it for right now. While you're here, check out a few of the places I've been stalking...urm, I mean following...

Your Life Spelled Out
Dirty Scraps
Much Ado About Nothing

Thanks for checkin' in!! See ya'll real soon!!
