Ok, so next item of business, I am at DIA waiting for my flight to Shreveport airport to spend a few days with Luke in Texas/Louisiana. The kids are with my Dad here at a friends house. I got to go do a very small amount of shopping last night, headed up to Sephora for my free birthday lip gloss (if you aren't a beauty insider yet, head to www.sephora.com and sign up. You get free stuffor your birthday!) I also picked up one of their scent books. It has 10 testers in it and an atomizer. it's $50, but you get a certificate for a free bottle of perfume (one of the 10) when you decide which one you want. Since Luke is SOOOO picky, I am tired of spending $40-$60 for a bottle of perfume he hates! So this way, he can decide what HE likes and then I will get that!
Next item of business... I am NOT looking forward to hot. Man alive, hot in Denver, hot in Louisiana, and hot in texas. Anyone who knows me, knows that I HATE anything over about 75 degrees! I am a cold weather girl. So ts going to be a big fat change for me. I will try not to whine too much, but just know that I am already uncomfortable!
Ok, I think that's about it. Yesterday was a VERY long drive, I misestimated the amount of time it would take me by almost an hour. The kids did really well considering, and the weather was good. first time I have drive by myself east and had it not be snowing! Thank GOD for Nintendo DS. They never would have made it if it weren't for that.
well, I suppose that's it for now. Since I am in the airport and was traveling yesterday too, I don't have anything nto post. But next week, I promise I will! Have a great weekend!

Yep, I am giving away a WHOLE Mr. Campy crafting kit! Sounds like a pretty good giveaway to me! This was bestowed upon my by the wonderful folks over on the Cosmo Blog to share the wealth with. So I am going to hook you up. You will have until the 10th to do this, that's just over a week. Link it up, I will do the old random number generator thing to figure out which of you will have your summer camping trips squared away! I am going to try to do more challenges and giveaways, so keep an eye out! Add me to your blog roll, cause lets face it... You know you want to!
Here's my layout for some inspiration!
Tuesday, June 9, 2009
I used a ton of stash on this, flowers from all kinds of places, rubons from mostly BG, the new paper whimsy (card sticking up in the back) from Sass, and so much ribbon I can't even tell you! I have also fallen in love with Kaiser bling. So there is some of that here too. And Maya Road cupcake rubons and chip wing. They are the cutest! Thanks to the girls over at scrapgal.com, I am not infatuated with thickers. The blue puffy ones are so fun and I had to use them here. wow, I could keep going forever. There is so much great stuff in here that I love. But I will let you look now!
The album is a 5x10 Pageframes album. I am cheap and acrylic is on the spendy side. So i put it in my purple cow rotary trimmer and cut the sucker in half! it was actually much easier than I thought, 3 or 4 passes through the rotary was enough to cut right through the acrylic. So now I have 2- 3 ring 5x5 albums instead of 1 5x10 6 ring album! Aren't I so clever!!Enjoy, hope it brings you some magical inspiration today! I just can't stop touching it, it's so much fun!

1. Sassafrass. Ok, besides the fact that they freaking rock and you can tell by 1/2 the layouts on my blog that I am a tiny bit obsessed, I was chosen for their blinky blog person thingy for the week! Isn't that awesome?? It's totally random and has nothing to do with my amazing scrappy skillz :( but nonethe less, they are hooking me up with a package of Sassafrass goodies! I have no idea what yet, but I was told I would be pleasantly surprised... It's Sass, of course it's going to be pleasant!
3. Scrap gal. Now i don't want you to think they are the least cause they are last, in fact they are the best, so I was saving them for last! They are having a DT call, don't bother applying, I intend to earn a spot so you have no chance! j/k! But seriously, they are having a Pink Paisley contest (all creations must be 75% PP products to enter) and you don't even have to be good! this isn't a "Only Ali Edwards need apply" kind of place. They are equal opportunity lovers! So you enter a project, your name goes into the hat. At the end of the month, they draw a random winner! Voila! I won the Glitz contest over there in April and HOLY Motherload Batman! i got the entire Rebel line, half of the Hot Mama, a bunch of the one with cars and road signs (the name escapes me), and a stack of rubons, cs alphas, and cs stickers. probably close to $100 of goodies. I was FLOORED. I have been using the heck out of it!
Ok, second. They are having a summer picnic challenge, with weekly challenges. No idea what the prize is, if there even is one! But the challenge this week is really fun. You pick a menu and you get specific things you have to have on a layout that you enter. It's so much fun.
And third, pretty much everything over there rocks. The ladies are AWESOME, talented, funny, supportive girls. The gallery is always rocking! The store has the latest October Afternoon release!!! And it would be a lot more fun if you came and hung out. Seriously. It is so much fun i can't even tell you.
It's really late, like almost midnight. Insomnia strikes again. Hey, I could make my own Star Wars-esque trilogy about my lack of sleep! That would be so cool! but I think I would be the only one awake to watch it. Alas, no scrapping today. I spent the day loading 25 listings onto ebay. it was time to clear out the kids' closets and get rid of all of Trent's Thomas the train stuff. So if you're looking, go check it out! Hope to see lots of entries for my challenge! If this goes well, it may become a regular thing ;) So tell a friend and get busy!
