Busy Weekend

...........it has been pretty busy around here. I have had to get my DT work for the next week completed, my project for the blog hop at AdornIt, my project for our crop this weekend at Scrappin Mojo done AND school work because.............


wait for it........................

I start work tomorrow! YAY!! I will be in training for 2 weeks then I go to the local branch (banking) and begin working part-time. I'm tickled pink as it will get me out of the house a bit, a little extra income which we could use right now after our move and eventually it will give us play money!! LOL We sure miss having play money lemme tell ya!!!

So, I got a lot done this weekend scrap wise and it is all scheduled for auto posts starting tomorrow with my CB Spot reveal, Thursday with Charisma Cardz reveal and then the AdornIt Blog Hop and Scrappin' Mojo crop. I also managed to pop in a card for a couple blog challenges that I can show now but you'll have to come back throughout the week to see everything!!!

My card, as seen here:


.......is rather, um, well, bright! I did not intend for it to be this colorful when I started it but well, it ended up rather bright and I do like it but it is out of my comfort zone.

The Copics I used are:


This card is for two challenges:

Penny Black
- recipe challenge to use 3 ribbons, 2 flowers and 1 charm (and a PB image)

Friday Sketchers
- sketch challenge.

Thanks for stoppin' by, keep me in your thoughts for my first week back at work in a LONG LONG time (well a real job that is...LOL) and most of all..........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???
