Whew - what a day! Today Surewest came to switch over our TV and internet - a couple minor glitches, and an all day process pretty much, but it is done. I will have a new email addy but got tired of waiting to get it set up, so that is a job for tomorrow! We had Lauren's "reward" dinner for sleeping through the night (and not waking up the momma) for a whole week -- that was a nice reward for momma too! She picked crab, and I decided if we were having crab we needed shrimp and steak as well, a little salad and sliced peaches -- YUMMO!
I have spent what time I could today getting caught up on some scrapping and other projects - still a lot on the long list of crafty things to do, but I made some headway! I start my role TOMORROW as design team member for Scrappin With Grace. Have I mentioned how excited I am about this?? Saturday is our all day Winter Wonderland crop -- I will be around the message boards most of the day - I hope you will come and join me!! If you have not been by before, please check it out - make sure to say hi if you come by - tell em KP sentcha! :)
I finished this layout this week for the final round of the Winter Wonderland contest at Scrappin with Grace as well. The challenge this week was to use Flair Designs patterned papers, and to complete a layout with at least 25% white space. Wow, was it hard for me to do this - really a challenge to try something out of my comfort zone. But I am SOOOO pleased with the way that this turned out. This is among the photos that I found last month that had never been printed -- I just loved this phase with Lauren, expect to see lots of that cute little face for a while!!
I used Flair Designs patterned papers, Bazzill Cardstock, Rub Ons and Stamps are Stampin' Up (and BTW these new rub ons ROCK!), Prima flowers, buttons from my stash, Grungeboard Heart, Crystal elements from Mark Richards, and my DYMO label maker.
I have also been working on the layouts for the Scappin with the Stars contest at Coordinates Collections as well - but I can't share them until the judging starts -- I will be sure to link you to the gallery for the contest when all of the entries are in. The competition already looks stiff, and I am really laboring over my layouts for this one... much MUCH harder than I expected it would be!
Well, I am off to try to get a few more things finished before bed -- have a great night!
