Angels and....

PMS??? So my ATC addiction is still going strong! I was so happy when ACP made a forum just for ATCs!!!!! Then they decided to do challenges..just for fun, no prizes. Most of the challenges have been "normal" I made the angels for a textured background challenge....but this week it is PMS!!!?? I thought to myself....NO WAY but hey I not only love ATCs but I love a good challenge...and the more challenging the happier I am so off I went to the bathroom cabinet!!!?? Pulled out my always with wings and carefree liners, cut out my words, and ran the little plastic cover through my Cuttlebug. Well, I doubt you really want to run and do that but just in case you do....the plastic will not cut very well so sandwich it between two sheets of paper and then carefully punch out.

On-line crop

Yesterday I spent the day at for a crop.
I didn't get a lot of cropping done...3 ATCs but it was fun! Here they are:
Following this sketch:

This was a scraplift of Cherrie

and my favorite: we had to use:button, ribbon, cardstock, something with a sparkle (glitter or sparkly/glittered item), a stamp, ink somewhere applied directly to project, and one or more fiskars tools used.

All about Lunch

or lack of....this my friends is a mindless blog post but I am annoyed so I'll share...
I fix the kid lunch you would think he could pick it up on his way out but nooooooooo, I take them to school and come home to a lunchbox sitting in the floor. Hmmmmmmm do I rush it back up there!? I feel like I should but I don't really feel like dragging the toddler out again plus just maybe this will teach him to be a little more responsible!!!??? But really I can't stand the thought of my kid being hungry so I hope that DH will get home early enough to run it to him...and he does!!! Yippee Yay, he calls the school to confirm what time his lunch is...they have 20 whole minutes to get this to him before lunch even starts!! The secretary emails his teacher!!?? Isn't technology great..well, it would be if she checked her email in time. So there his lunchbox set...all through lunch....and during last period they call him over the intercom to come get his lunchbox. Oh yeah, isn't that great, why didn't they do that to begin with!!!?? His best buddy gave him a cheese stick so he wouldn't starve.

You are the gift

that made all my dreams come true. I received my prize for winning 2nd place in the BoBunny contest!! They sent me the believe line of Christmas paper, rub-ons, ribbons and brads! I could not wait to use this sheet of paper!!! This is a photo from '04 but I thought it would be perfect for it. I cut the swirls with the Cricut, added flowers, and the cool brads were the ones in my prize package. It was soooooooo much fun!!!

Boo to you

I made it in the top five at Coconut Scrapbooking's Fall Frenzy and here is my final entry. We had to make a shaped card with...(1) Paint Technique I used a combing technique on the pumpkin, first I painted it dark oragne, after it dried I mixed the same orange paint with white to make it a lighter shade and painted over it, while the paint was still wet I drug a comb through it to expose some of the first layer of it looks like a real pumpkin!
(2) Buttons-I used them for eyes
(3) Felt-I used for a nose
(4) Rub-On- the word boo is a rubon and the little spray of dots on the tag is also a rubon from American crafts
(5) Ribbon-offray around his neck
(6) Sticker-the ghost is Studio Basic 101and the small Jack-O-Lantern is Jolee's
(7) Chipboard-I used a circle and oval to make my pumpkin.
Thanks for the fun challenge.

I think he turned out cute!
