The We Didn't Get to Go to CHA Challenge!!

Sometimes, it takes a little push to get your Mojo Flowing
You know?
On Friday, I was chatting it up on Facebook with friends
and we decided to put together a few challenges to have fun with
since we were all sitting at home wishing we could be at the big show...
you know THE BIG SHOW
SO we came up with the
"We didn't Get to go to CHA Challenge!!"
So Amber's Challenge is use these three colors
C= Candy Apple Red
H= Honey
A= Aqua

Yeah, ok I know this one just took on a life of it's own..
once I got out the paint and smooch spritz it was all overwith
I just kept piling stuff on...chunky glitter, a drink umbrella, some tulle, a doiley
I was pretty high on caffeine while I worked on this one
but it sure was fun!!
The next challenge was from Christi
Her challenge was to use THIS BOOK Cover as inspiration

I went for pretty literal in my inspiration..LOL
but I just love the way it turned out
That little hanger came from the Coolest Little Store EVER
they have punchinella for so super cheap!!
Sentiment Stamp is Verve
Last was my challenge, which was to create something inspired by your favorite
CHA Sneek Peak
Mine is Twig by LYB
Well I love almost all the sneak peeks I've seen honestly, but I guess I went with this
one because they seemed to go in a different color direction than everyone else
and also because I just can't ever get enough of the classics I guess..

I used Pink Paislee Paper here, Unity Sentiment, and the trees are MLS

I had so much fun creating for these challenges!!

If you would like to play,
The details are all
We'd love to see what you come up with!
Thanks so much for stopping by today!

I really need some sunshine!

I am one of those people who wilts
without enough fresh air and sunshine
it doesn't have to be 70 degrees or anything...
I don't mind sunshine and snow
but just about anything would beat these very dreary bleak skies the past week
it makes me cranky
and cranky doesn't work for me
I used to hit the tanning beds whenever this feeling
started to overtake me
but unfortunately a little skin cancer will make you rethink that idea
so I figured maybe I could craft myself some sunshine

Ahhhh...that's a little better
I used Unity Stamps (Feel the Joy)
Have a wonderful day!!

Be Mine...

Hey There!
We're buried under ice today, with snow on the way
so a good day to curl up with a book in my jammies and get some stamping done
although I'm not sure what order that's going to be in...
Just a little Valentine Love to share today
It uses the color's from this month's
It's not too late to play, you have until tomorrow at midnight!!
Details are HERE

You've still got plenty of time to order some of the new
Valentine Stickerz from the EAD STORE!!!

Need to take a minute

I've been consumed...
Since I read Karen's first Highlander book,
I was hooked on her writing..
the only problem being, she doesn't write anywhere near as fast as I read her books
and it's probably expecting way too much for an author to write a book in 5 or 6 hours
and I have a tendency to eat books in that way
The "Fever" Series started in 2006
and proceeded with wrecking my little world with
the next three books over FOUR STIKING YEARS of Torture
to end here with this

There are no words, this was the most amazing ending ever
while you see the possibility of other characters getting their own story, and a few things were left undone with the main characters
KMM did the most amazing job tying up the loose ends that she's been torturing us with from the beginning, and I never saw the ending coming
I can't even make myself read anything else right now

Here's what I will tell you...If you haven't read any of these

drop everything and start right now....really right now...

I do have a card to show you today...
I used PTI Cardstock and Unity Stamps from a set that I can't remember the name of right now
because my brain is still wrecked
American Crafts Stickers, and some blingity

Thanks for stopping by!

Hey there,
I haven't been around that much the past week or so..
sorry about that
I've had some crazy stuff going on with work
leaving one under less than ideal circumstances, wasn't easy
looking for a new one was actually much easier than I thought,
(they actually came to me)
so maybe in the end it was all meant to be
It's not all for sure yet, but it looks like I'll be going back to nursing at Andrews
Let it go, move on
why is it so hard for me to make things when things are going screwy?
That's not really what this post was supposed to be about though,
It's about me getting a NOOKColor
Rob gave me my Vday present early, really it was pre-emptive because he had planned to get me one, but was afraid I'd go buy it myself before he could get it
I really think everyone should have one!
So, I've been reading like I'm an addict and books are my crack
I made this little notebook to keep track of everything I read this year,
I actually attempted this last year,
but then I lost my notebook somewhere between Md and Il
Here's this years...

Hopefully I won't lose it this year!
This is just an altered notebook from the Target $spot
I used K&Co Paper and Ippity Stamps
and colored with my watercolor pencils

Thanks so much for stopping by!

WHOA...stand back everyone

Yep...I scrapped!
I haven't in so so long, but I did a couple pages this weekend
which has kind of put me in the mood to do more...
I was inspired by Christi's layout here

I used punchinella as a stencil and a mister with some watercolor paint
( I've been playing around with art supplies- SO FUN)
anyway I used those to create the efects in the corners
I stamped several Unity stamps from the Le Chic kit
Paper is October Afternoon and Bella BLVD,
tape is from Pink Paislee and Torendi
Torendi is Closing...:(
so if you want to get your hands on any of Jenn's super Cute stuff
head over today because everything is on sale!!
These pictures were taken in September on Britain's birthday
at a dockside resturaunt not far from where we live.
It happened to be the coolest day ever, because not only were our friends who had just
moved back from Japan staying with us...but we happened to run into
Jack's (my bff's Stephanie's son) all time hero
Travis Pastrana..the Nitro Circus Guy and Jim DeChamp also Nitro Circus
who were both incredibly nice and let us take pictures with them and everything.
I still have to scrap those though :)
Thanks so much for stopping by today!!
