Halloween Is Coming! SERIOUSLY PEOPLE!

It is and will come and go faster than we think!  So at this late date I propose a chipboard mini album/tag page swap to start using up some of those Halloween items we've been stashing away!  Don't say your not stashing these adorable goodies because I know you are, and BUDDY I totally am!  HA

So here's how it will go down.  This will be a small swap we'll limit it to max 6 players.  When you sign up I will give you 6 chipboard tags(they will be small as to not overwhelm).  You will decorate both sides of the chipboard Halloweenie inspired.  Each tag should have 1 journaling area, a pocket, at least one item 3D and fibers and or ribbon.   I also challenge you to add some Bling to the project and will give everyone including BLING a little prize.  Each page should be similar in layout and design.  When the swap ends you will get back 1 of your own pages and a max of 5 other pages to create your mini book or you could use these as tags on goodies for the holiday.  Sounds fun right!  I know I'm excited! So we'll have a short sign up deadline as I'll probably start calling people telling them to sign up shortly!   HA  Deadline to sign up 9/27/10.   Tags should be to me by 10/20/10 and I will get them back to you by 10/22/10.  Which is by the way the crop at CraftFancy we are attending everyone is invited to come and play!  Just contact the store to sign up!

Ok so on that note we are scrapping this week so I hope to see you all working on your latest projects!

Ok so my children love to say "lightbulb" when they have an idea.  It's very funny.  What is not funny is my jones for these lightbulp pendants.  I must put a light like this in my house somehwere.  I'm currently obsessed with The Brass Petal blog by Emily the new Design Star.

 I digress I meant to say we are scrapping this Wed.  and Happy Labor Day!  Hopefully this link and photo will inspire you to jones for something......I mean, to create!

Rain Rain go Away!

It's making me BLUE and since I'm blue I thought we could all be inspired by it! 

We are scrapping this week.  No real challenge I'm sure we all have tons to work on!  We of course try to do our one b-day card and holiday card each week. 

I have to thank Alice and Dianne so much for helping me by decorating all my suckers for the party last week.  I'm sure I would still be working on them today if you hadn't!

I look forward to seeing everyone Wednesday!  If your also a part of CARS our swap is this Thursday Black & White!

I would like to thank the Academy.........and the Schnockered Girlies.......

Tonight is the Oscars are you ready to you have your picks? 

I thought this week we would do a little challenge around the Academy Awards.  Pic one nominee from the entire show.  Person, Movie, Music, Costuming, Documentary, Honoree etc. etc.totally up to you,  and create something inspired by that.  You can do this before we get together and crop or during or even after.  But it would be super cool if you would share it with us so we can OOOOOOH and AHHHHHHH over it and be inspried as well!

We are scrapping this week on Wed. at 7pm.  I look forward to seeing everyones take on this challenge!

Do you have your Tickets? To The Movies?

Alice comes out this weekend.  Abbi turns 7 this week can you believe it?  And awards season with the beautiful dresses and parties is almost upon us!  That and there is the prospect of all of the snow being gone by Sunday!  What more could we ask for??????

How about a night of Scrapping?  I have no challenges except our regular 1 Birthday Card 1 Holiday Card.  It will be more catch up time!

Our Olympic night was a success well except for the freak snow storm that cut it a little short.  But otherwise we worked on challenges, learned some new techniques, ate food that was super delicious and giggled a lot!   No food this week unless we do Double Filets O Fish?  Anyone in?

Look forward to seing you Wednesday.  Hey the Olympics have ended what else have you got to do?

Rock, Paper, Scissors

This is a symbol of these Olympic games.  Everytime you see it, it is made of something different.  Hard, Soft, Cold, Icey, Flat, Dimensional, Texturized etc.  The symbol is unmistakable wherever you see it!

Mountains from the Water Reaching to the Sky!

The scenery in Canada is amazing.  If nothing else these games have made me want to visit there just to take in the scenery.

Heading to the Chalet.....

After a long day of sking the slopes.   Going to grab a comfy chair by the fire?   What do you see?  Golden lights bouncing off of glittery snow.  Everything that glitters is not Gold even at the Olympic games.    How do you make your projects Sparkle and Shine?

New Year New Challenge

Wake Up Wake Up It's the New Year!   So to that end we have a New Challenge.  Well I mentioned last year late in the year but it's time to put it into practice.  So each week we meet we will make at least 2 cards 1 Christmas and 1 Birthday.  At the end of the year you will end up with 42 of each.  Now since maybe everyone doesn't need 42 Birthday or Christmas cards I think you should be able to change one out each week if you so choose to do so.  We don't meet the 3rd Wed. so that week you are welcome to work on your own and share here on the blog later.
