September Blog Hop Challenge

I decided to participate with the PTI blog hop challenge this month.  I chose to focus on the colors of the stripes and incorported stripes into my card with colored strips of patterened paper.  I used Cosmo Cricket pp, Mat stack 4, Tranquility Trilogy stamp set, and I think it is fine linen card stock.  Thanks for looking!

September 21

well, I got my PTI goodies yesterday in the mail.  I had to work nights though, so today when I couldn't fall asleep, I just had to try out my new snowflake die.  I soooo love this die!  Looking forward to trying a few things with it.  Thought I would share a card that I made.  Not really Christmas colors, but I thought I'd try something.  I used Vintage Cream, Dark Chocolate and Ocean Tides cardstock with The snowflake die and the Stylish Sentiments, Holiday stamp.  I stamped some Fancy Flourishes stamps on the snowflake in Espresso and Vintage Cream.  I wanted to add some glitter yet, but I have none. :(

Also, Corbin finished his masterpiece!  He had so much fun putting this together.  I wonder how long before pieces come off to create something else!

Thanks for looking!

September 17

Guess what Corbin got today???!!!!  He earned a lot of money playing violin on the street at our local Corn and Apple Festival.  He was trying hard to earn enough for something he's wanted for years.  It was close.  I had to pay the taxes.  He didn't know it, but he would have gotten it on Thursday, except it was a bad day.  One huff too many when asked to do something.  So, I cried because I knew what he was not going to get that day.  :(   Leon wanted to wait 2 weeks to give it to him after that.  I said it really isn't a punishment if he doesn't know about it is it?  So, we gave it to him today. 

Thankfully it will be hours of entertainment for both of them, and Bryn likes to organize and run the show, and Corbin is happy doing what she tells him to, so I should have some scrappy time!  It's a win win!

This thing is BIG!  It came with four boxes and each box has about 10 bags in it.  The manual (you can see in the pic) is a coil book, 260 pages.  3803 pieces.  I hope we don't lose any! Now I hope I can occasionally pull them away to get their homework done and piano and violin done!  I did some on line reading.  It took one man about 40 hours to get it all together.  Yikes!

Thanks for looking!  Have a great day!

September 16

Well it is the day after ordering some new stuff from PTI new Christmas release.  I am really excited because I do not have a single Christmas stamp or sentiment.  Pathetic I know.  I decided that it was high time to rectify that sorry state!  :)  So now, I am eagerly awaiting my goodies.

Leigh posted a sketch challenge on PTI forum.  Thanks for the sketch.  It was nice and simple and I could even do it!  I borrowed leaf prints stamps and dies from a friend. (I really have to get these), I used PTI pp turning a new leaf, cs aqua mist and ripe avocado and spring moss.  I used the half and half die and the stamp.

Thanks for looking!  Enjoy your nice fall day.

September 9

Well, welcome to a new day!  I was going to go for a run, but I got sidetracked by my new Lost and Found goodies!  (oops)  This is for Leigh's challenge to use a die cut and a stamp on a layout.    I used my half and half die, and a stamp from that set.  I admit, I only used one stamp, but it's still a stamp!  The paper was so busy, I just couldn't add any more.  lol

Thanks for looking! Have a great day, and I think i'll try to get my run in now.

This attempt is actually my favourite, which is hard to believe, cause I am just not really a pink kinda girl. But I enjoyed working with this. I used my limitless layers die, Cosmo Cricket patterned paper, my half and half die and sentiment, and an old brad I found in my stash.

Thanks for looking. Happy stamping!
