Hey everyone! I just wanted to pop in real quick and let you know that I probably won't have any posts for this week or next. There has been so much going on here lately that I'm about to pull my hair out! We also got bad news today. Winston's (my hubby) cousin lost his battle with cancer today. So I know I'm not going to have any crafting time. Next week Winston is taking his vacation and I'm not sure what all we will be up to then just going to have to play it by ear. I just didn't want anybody to think I've went missing! I feel really bad that I'm missing some of my challenges for the DT's that I am on but I've contacted them all and explained. I will be back just as soon as I can! Oh by the way Friday is me and Winston's birthday!! I'll be 42 and he is turning 43! We are becoming old farts ha ha!!! One good thing about having the same birthday is that we can't forget each others!! Well, I'm heading off to bed I'm exhausted and have a long day ahead of me tomorrow!!

As I mentioned in my last post we are having a Triple Challenge over at Practical Scrappers with Frosted Design and Stuck On U Sketches. I combined all the three challenges in this layout. Our challenge at Practical Scrappers is to use three ribbons. The challenge at Frosted Designs was to use a owl on your project and I used the sketch from Stuck On U Sketches. The owls were cut from the Slice Fall Back To School Design Card. The branch is from the Home Decor Cricut cartridge. The heart is from the George and Basic Shape Cartridge. The word love is from A Childs Year and I welded the Owl and U to it with DS. The word forever is from the Stamping cartridge (it did say forever & ever but cut & ever off). The owls eyes are a flower cut from Graphically Speaking and just added a brad in the center. Whew, I didn't really realize how many cartridges I used and how bad I really missed my Gyspy!!! Speaking of my Gyspy I am having to return it and ProvoCraft is replacing with a new one. I've got it all boxed up and ready for Fed X to pick up tomorrow. The customer service guy I spoke to said it could take up to 4 weeks to get my new one back!! Arrr wasn't to happy with that but not much I can do about it!! Be sure to check out all three of these challenge blogs and come join in on the fun! Thanks for looking!!
Hello everyone! I hope everyone had a great Halloween! I know we did! Me and my husband enjoyed seeing all the little one's dressed in their spooky costumes! This is one of my hubbies favorite holidays! He loves passing out candy to the kiddies! This week over at Practical Scrappers we are doing our first ever triple challenge with Frosted Designs and Stuck On U Sketches! Our challenge at Practical Scrappers is using three ribbons. I have been wanting to try two different techniques for quite a while with ribbon so this challenge was fun for me! I made the flower with ribbon. First start off by cutting a piece of ribbion 3/4 inch wide and 12 inches long. Divide this strip into 4 seperate 3 inch pieces. Then cut another strip 1/2 wide and 10 inches long. Divide this strip into 4 seperate 2 1/2 inch strips. Layers the strips on top of one another with the smaller on top of the larger strips. Then tack together with needle and thread and add button. For the ribbon around the frame I used my zip dry glue to do the scrunching technique. For the third ribbon nothing fancy just tied it around my photo! I made this layout before my Gyspy died on me so I used the following cartridges Gyspy Font, Gyspy Wanderings, and Storybook. The paper is by Crate. This is a photo of my mom when she was a little girl. I love this picture of her! Be sure to head over and check out the details for the challenge! I know that each blog will be giving away a prize so head on over and join in on the fun!! Also, our new DT members have been announced so be sure to leave them some love and learn a little about them! Thanks for looking and any comments are appreciated!
