A New Etsy Shop

My friend Kimmie decided to start an Etsy shop. She's got some really terrific tags and beautiful cards. You should definitely stop by and check it out. My favorite are those cute little Christmas tags with the Santas. Maybe I'll find them in my stocking on Christmas morning - LOL!!

Here's a link and tell her I sent you:

Shout it Out Loud

WOOHOO! I made it!

I found out today that I made the Design Team at Your Memories By Design! I'm so excited I can't tell you how much I wanted to make this team. Catherine is just so wonderful and her Etsy shop if filled with so many goodies that it's always hard to decide which ones I want to try next.

I just wanted to say thanks to Catherine, Heather and Megan for selecting me to be a part of their team! And a huge congrats to Julie, Susan and Vanessa who are also joining the team. So come on over and join us for a lot of fun at YMBD.!!!

Pick Me Up!

There's nothing like a little pick me up to get you going on a cold and breezy Monday morning. None of the kids want to go to school today and honestly I don't blame them. Who would want to venture out in that cold air? Well, I'm sure there are some, but not me - I am so NOT a cold weather kinda gal. But I'm getting off topic here. I got an email this morning and it's because my friend Heather (YMBD) loves me. Well, not me really, but one of my LOs. LOL!!

Heather has chosen this LO to be the gallery find for this week. Thanks Heather! It's just what I needed this morning.
I even get a special little blinkie to display in my siggy. Woohoo!

Buttons Galore

Use Your Stash Blog's challenge this month is Buttons! I found this really great, inexpensive Barn Star at Michael's. I used Basic Grey's Figgy Pudding line and lots of buttons to jazz it up a bit.

We want to see 8.5x11 or 12x12 layouts that use lots of buttons!!!! Be creative and show them off! We'd like all work to be new - the idea is to USE your stash by making NEW pages!

The deadline is November 20th, winner announced on the 25th. Voting will be done by poll - after the dt has narrowed it down to 2 layouts.

Come on over and check out what the design team has created.

Scrap Within Reach

Love, love, love this month's sponsor at Playground - Scrap Within Reach. They have some really great lines that will work well with lots of different styles. I received The Cottage line and fell in love with the yummy blues/browns/greens. Here's a peek at a couple of the LOs I did:

Don't forget to come on over and check out the gallery for some more inspiration from the Design Team.

I also got a manufacturer kit from Scrap Within Reach through Crop Addict. This time I received the Elliot Collection. Here are a couple of my LOs from the kit:

Make sure to come on over and see what the rest of the Design/Creative team did with SWR.
