Hi Ladies. I hope all of you had a super weekend! My backyard party went well & everyone had a great time :) First I must share some SUPER DUPER exciting news with all of you! My fall themed basket using PTI's My Timeless Pack-A-Picnic Template, (designed by Lauren), project that I made for the PTI August Blog Hop won Honorable Mention for the September Guest Star Stamper in the Best use of My Timeless Template category! Yeah!!!! You probably get tired of hearing me repeat myself but ALL of the templates that I have purchased from PTI are so super easy to cut & versatile! As you can see, I jazz them up for ANY & EVERY ocassion!!!! Don't forget to join me on September 25th for another FUN evening during the PTI Blog Hop!!
The Cuttlebug Challenge Birthday Palooza Continues!!! It is week number three in their month-long celebration. As a participant in the Cuttlebug Challenge Be Inpired Challenges, the first week, we had to create an invitation to our "themed" party, then we had to create a gift bag & card and now it is time to create a matching mini-album for the Cuttlebug Challenge Be Inspired #49! (This entire challenge is based on a theme, (I chose Halloween) & use of a Cuttlebug embossing folder of the crafter's choice, (I am using both the Tiny Bubbles & Tiny Mosaic Texture EF). If you would like to see so many inspirational mini's that both the DT & other participants have created, I recommend visiting the Cuttlebug Challenge site! I was first a Scrapbooker before a Cardmaker, so this week's challenge was sort of a throwback for me & was soooo much fun! :) I have several friends who are both Scrapbookers as well as Cardmakers. I would like to mention some that come to mind in no particular order & if you click their name, it will take you to their blog where you can see sooooo many beautiful creations: Susan, Eve, Kim, Sammye Jo. How many of you create different papercrafts other than greeting cards & if so, what? I would love to know! Thanks so much for taking the time to visit me :) Be Sweet!
This is my Monster Madness mini-album:
