Exciting News!

Hi friends!

I have some exciting news to share with you!  I am joining the Evalicious Design Team for another term!  I was just thrilled when Eve invited me back and I am looking forward to sharing some projects with you all using her amazing goodies!

I am super excited about all the new wood elements Eve has added to her shop, have a peek at these!  You will love them!

Here is a little sneak at some of the goodies that I received!

I can't wait to start playing!!

I have a surprise for you too, but it will have to wait until next week as I am just running off to a scrappy retreat weekend.  But I will give you a hint - it involves some goodies Eve gave me to share!

You should pop by the Evalicious site to meet the rest of the team, so much talent!

So glad you visited!

Discover - Boys Rule - Bo Bunny

Hi there!

I have a new page up on the Boys Rule blog today, using the latest kit!  I picked out all of the great Bo Bunny papers to create this page, which is based on the November sketch on the Bo Bunny blog.

I loved the colours in these papers for my photos, and even though these are travel papers they are just fine for this day trip layout.

How much do we love this geo tag / heart paper clip!!

And these fab stickers that look so much like rub ons!

I also love these cork hearts, which I have doodled on for this page.

Here is the Bo Bunny sketch in case you want to play along!

Bakers Twine Holder Tip

Hi there!

I thought I would share a little tip for storing baker's twine.  So many people are using really cute jars  for their twine, but they can be pricey. And when you want one for each colour, it adds up fast.

However, this tangled mess was making me crazy!

So I scoured my local dollar store, and found these cheap sugar jars.

The flap over the hole was a bit of a problem for me, but luckily it just pulled right off.

And my twine looks so pretty in them!

I picked up 6, one for each colour of the rainbow plus black and brown!

Thanks for visiting!

Love - Stuck?! Sketches

Hi there!

It is time for our mid month challenge and reveal at Stuck?! Sketches!  I have a page to share today using some pretty Amy Tan papers that I picked up a while ago.  I used a photo of my son and his sweetheart taken when they were all gussied up for a relatives wedding.

Here are some detailed shots:

I used up a bunch of my Freckled Fawn stash, might have to do a little shopping! ha!

And some Jillibean stuff I have been hoarding.

I really love the colour combo and how this page turned out!   I had a lot of fun just playing with elements.

Here is the sketch for this challenge:

I sure hope  that you play along!  We are have another GDT call at Stuck?! Sketches  if you want to "try out" just enter a page based on this sketch and put GDT after your name.  Bloggers will be given preference.  Don't worry if you do not get picked this time around, there will be more opportunities.

We have two amazing sponsors for this challenge:

Spooky - Boys Rule - Simple Stories

Hi there!

I am up on the Boys Rule blog today sharing a new sketch challenge and sample!

Here is the sketch that I am challenging you to play with.....

And this is my take on it.....

 And here are a few close up pics...

I had so much fun using the 'Frankie and Friends' Halloween papers and stickers from Simple Stories that were included in the current kit, along with some of the Authentique 'Spirited' die cuts, some Jillibean tags, and the DIY clear stickers.  I love that these stickers look so much like rub-ons but are fool proof ;)! I used a bit of green and black mist from my stash as well as a piece of black cardstock, I also added some journalling and doodling with a black Sharpie.

I can't wait to see what you create with this month's sketch, so be sure to play along for your chance at the prize!

And thanks for visiting today!
