Speed Scrap on Live Chat today:

Wow - this is only my second attempt at a Speed Scrap and it is so fun... the best part though is when everyone is done and you get to see all the different LOs that look SO different - even though we all followed the same directions!

Here is my attempt at it:

Scrapped Happy the other day!

Hey there...

Just a quick update - I had my monthly Crop on Thursday and actually decided to print out some of our MANY DC photo's just so I could have a couple of Layouts in our Annual Family scrapbook! I am planning on using to make a digital photo book so I can use all of them at once soon enough... but I 'had' to have something to work on, right?!

So - here are my LOs:

I just broke down and ordered prints of my Retreat in June in PA too... I am going to do a Mini album and since I am in between clients and my digital designing is sort of at a stand still - I seem to have the time?! Hopefully I will get into it this weekend... we'll see?!

Next week is back to school... my baby is going in the 9th grade... we had a BLAST shopping together yesterday - she even talked me into skinny jeans?! Crazy... but they were on sale - and hey - they fit?! I kept telling her I think I am too old for those... but she insisted!? We'll see if they ever make it outside of the house!?

Scrap Happy!

Cuttlebug fun...

Thanks to one of my MANY enabler-type friends - I broke down and purchased a Cuttlebug! You have to know - I am not really a bit Tool girl! I have very VERY little supplies on hand and really enjoy buying papers, etc per project or LO... It took me FOREVER to buy a paper cutter way back in the day and even my Cricut is relatively new (Dec) and unused (maybe a dozen times?!) - but last week I jumped in - and I bought a Cuttlebug and SCAL!The Cuttlebug is from the above mentioned friend - she now has a Big Shot so wasn't using her Cb much - and now it lives in my room! I was able to 'win' two auctions on ebay right away - and so I have one embossing file (Snowflakes) and one die cut set (Paisleys). The SCAL I had in mind when I bought the Cricut in the first place! So - instead of spending $60 - $80 per alpha on cartridges, I spent $75 on a download that enables me to cut using the countless fonts I already have! Nice! AND I can weld the letters together to cut words! I know that it will do much more than that - but it's new... and I haven't had much time to play with it!

Anyway - thanks to De - my FriendGood - I had to try this technique...

Cardstock, Aluminum Foil, Spray Adhesive, Cuttlebug and Embossing folder

Denice said that the cardstock was just foundation - but you all know me better than that! How could I not tear the edge and make it show through a little?! The Paisleys are cut and re-assembled too - a bit too many tiny pieces... not sure how often I will use it - but I do love me some Paisleys now and then!

On another note - we went out last night to enjoy Music in the Park - an activity that happens every Thursday night over the summer in our little town! Gotta love it!Also - fingers crossed - by 5 tonight - I will be driving my new car!!!
Scrap Happy!

PS - Here's the new car... still looking for the right name for him - isn't he hot?! LOL!?

Rock On!
