Working Away!

Busy, working away. I am almost cleaned up from my long trip to Canada. I took about half of my stuff and most of it is now put away, but as my friend said 'the artistic people are always messy'. That would be why I haven't posted a picture of my scrap space's never clean. I did get some great work done while I was away, the layout pictured above is my creation using the REAL paper packs from . There is a hidden journaling tag behind the picture...sadly with nothing on it yet. And the little flowers from on the side are made from my Cricut. It's a really cute picture and I wanted to use it. Love it. Hope to put put up another great layout tomorrow.

All in a day's work.

Just wanted to show you all the cute little things I made today at the crop. I made this cute little Miss You card that I am going to be giving away today to our friends the Ratcliff's who are moving from Denver back to Calgary. This was made using my Cricut.
This adorable little purse is filled with chocolates for the girls...something cute they can play with. I think they will have fun with it! Also made using my Cricut.

And here we have some weird looking bottles for the bathroom that I had just bought. They looked so boring before I felt like I had to jazz them up a bit. All the colors match the fabulous wallpaper I have in my bathroom. Believe me the bathroom needs a bit of something cute! Hope you like them .

Currently all of the designs I have sent out for publication are available to be viewed. Some need a subscription to view them and others are free. The above card was picked up for an article in Scrapbook News and Review on Multiple Stamping. To see the article use the link --->
Just some great ideas to get your mojo going. With just coming back from visiting the family and finishing the Close to my Heart Convention in Calgary, scrapbook ideas are swirling around in my head. But of course my husband has other plans, we have to get some gardening done, CHECK, we have to clean the house (because for 3 weeks alone my hubby was too busy), CHECK, and grocery shop and laundry (cause that didn't get done either). ARGHH!!! Not to mention that I haven't even unpacked my scrapbook supplies from my vehicle. If I am patient everything will fall into place and I will once again be able to create. I am planning on using some mixed media for some new layouts. Keep looking for some great ideas!!!

Vacation VS Visiting

I just got back from my 3 week long 'visit' with my family in Calgary. It was a great 'visit' and I did more work trying to see everyone I knew that I zonked out at 11pm every night. So just before I was to drive the 1200 miles back to Denver I had to have a 'chat' with my husband about the difference between vacationing and visiting!!! However when I came home there were over 115 emails that hadn't yet been looked at. I was deleting all the kid's store coupon emails when I came across an email from For those of you who have read my blog before you will know that picked up one of my layouts for thier Father's Day features. Thank you Jami Petersen! I then found the email which Jami wrote saying that she had put my layout on the COVER!!! You can see the cover pictured above, well I thought that was awesome, it is available today to view online and I do believe free to subscribe to. I will continue to send in my work and see if any more publications like them. I am in the mood to create as I now need a vacation from my visiting trip!!
