Life is Sweet

......................most of the time....LOL. We all have those days I know but yesterday was one that made me question my sanity for sure!!!

I did get good news, I won the card challenge at Just Scrappin' for the kit from Kelly's shop - I have to admit I am shocked. All the girls who entered really knocked this one out of the ballpark!!!

Here is the card I entered:

And here is the fabulous prize sponsored by Kelly's shop that I won:


Thank you to Cristal at Just Scrappin' and Kelly at Keep In Touch - I can not wait to get my hands on this and play!!!!

I did manage to do a LO last night - I'm not happy with it because of the two smaller pictures but I will reprint them and change them out. I used some new stuff I found by K&Co that is based on fabrics by Amy Butler!!! My friend Ashley over at JS introduced me to Amy Butler fabrics and I'm so in love!!! When I saw scrappy goodness made with it there was no doubt I had to purchase it!!! I will update the picture when I change out the pics - it really sounded good in my head to do them like this but once I assembled it it wasn't so great but I was being lazy last night and didn't feel like reprinting at the time.


As always, thanks for stopping by!!! Happy Scrappin'!!!!

Just to cover all bases...................

I am not the best scrapper out there. I don't claim to be totally original, I lift from many places and in many forms from color combinations, to product usage, to technique and so forth. I try to be fair to all scrappers out there and mention them when I lift from them - now keep in mind, there are so many people out there scrapping, card making and altering items that naturally more than one person will have similar ideas. When I mention lifting, or casing as some call it, I mean when you intentionally take a design you see and duplicate it exactly or only change up the coloring........KWIM???
