Everything's Coming up Roses!!

So several people asked me whether or not I was going to accept the job in Heaven (aka The Scrapbook Factory) and I have to say at this point how could I not...? right? but I'm going to go by there after work tomorrow and talk with Anne and see what's next....I'm so excited I could pee my pants!!

In other news...another super cool thing happened to me today...I am joining the team at OhScrap, on online magazine and blog soon to publish it's first issue...I don't know all the details of what you're going to be seeing in there yet and some stuff is still super secret..but I can promise it's going to be a lot of fun... I am going to be the Sketch Coordinator!! I am so excited that I already completed my first assignment! You can go subscribe here now....that would be now....and then come back and read about the rest of what's going on around here....
I actually started to blog last night, but blogger kept giving me error messages so I gave up...
While I've been missing the past couple days, I've actually gotten quite a bit done...


This is Landon helping me with my suitcase...I'm having a lot of fun with this medium or I should say we are...but I'm not showing you anymore of it until it's done...
I should have known when I almost set the kitchen on fire yesterday boiling water for tea that it probably wasn't the best day to start this project..(I sort of forgot about putting the water on and got in the shower)...I got one side done and all impressed with my cute self, turned it over to do the other side and proceeded to put the focal point of the project..the vintage "Once in Love with Amy" ad from a 1950's Life....UPSIDE DOWN...Mod Podge is not a very forgiving sealer so it's stuck that way...it's cute still...just upside down...so I'm not sure if I'm going to just cover over it or say the heck with it and leave it...probably the latter...

Here is my Deck of Me card for week 10..prompt was describe you Happy Place




The paper is Making Memories and the Dye Cuts are from Luxe Designs Color Me Cozy...I so love this line of paper...then I inked them with my CTMH inks
and here is a layout based on one of Christi's Creative Prompts...36 I think...

I used CTMH Cardstock, Making Memories letter stickers, Bazzill cardsock for the Photo matts, Scenic Route Charlotte pattern paper and Daisy D's Beacon Hill patter paper, the butterfly and journal tag are Fancy Pants....
I also did this one of Landon..

For this one I used Bazzill cardstock, Karen Foster pattern paper, We R memory Keepers patter paper and letter stickers, Making Memories pattern paper and journaling page, Fancy Pants ribbon and ribbon holder thingie.












I had Landon home with me today, he's had a really awful cold and has been pretty miserable...but of course with the amazing power of Tylenol Cold by 11 he was feeling fine and dandy and bouncing off the walls so we...well mostly he...I supervised made some chocolate chip cookies...

they turned out really good- so his new aspiration is to become a chef...let's hope he has a lot better luck in the kitchen than I do....I'm way too easily distracted...
That's all I've got for today...thanks so much for stopping by...
Gratitude:
1. Day off with Landon
2. Baking cookies with kid mentioned above
3. Not losing my patience with same earlier mentioned kid
4. getting some scrappy stuff done...
5. staying in my pj's until (blush) about 11...
oh my gosh, I almost forgot to mention...there's this new show on Fox called New Amsterdam...it's on tonight at 8 central...or it might be 9...anyway it's really good you've got to see it and if you missed the first two episodes you can watch them on Fox.com...I watch almost all my shows on the internet anymore...I can never seem to be in front of the tv at a specific time...ok well this post has probably broken records for longest ever..so I'm outta here..
love and kisses...
MWAH!

Can't wait to see your suitcase when it's done! I bought an old suitcase from Goodwill that I'm going to alter (I think it will hold some of my mini books, but not sure yet). I'm sure seeing your finished product will inspire me to work on mine! Congrats on your new design position!

Lisa said...

The job sounds exciting, it would be wonderful to go to work and do what you really love doing, but I would probably spend my paycheck buying more scrapping goodies! I hope it works out for you.

Zoe said...

Kellan said...

How exciting to hear about the DREAM job. I am quite jealous. Kuddos too on the Fiskars training. Seems like Spring has already sprung at your place! Enjoy the excitement.

the job sounds wonderful and I love all your scrappies!

Kylie in Warsaw said...

Great! I'm glad you're going to take the job! I second what Lisa said though. If I worked at a scrapbook store, I SO would be spending all my money there. Maybe they could just pay in store credit;).

Teri in CO said...

I usually read updates in google reader and so I'm just now seeing your banner! I love it!

And that is so exciting about the job opportunities!
