Happy Cyber Monday!!

I hope everyone had a super Thanksgiving! I did! Great times with family and friends, way too much good food, and definitely too much wine! Just ask mom!! ;) So how many of you have finished your Christmas shopping?? If so, I'm jealous! I haven't even started yet! *sigh* One of these years I'll get to Black Friday shop! Haha!

Anyway, it's Monday so there's another challenge posted over at Paper Therapy. This week's challenge was to create a project with a button and a bow. I kinda stretched the rules and used a knot instead of a bow! ;) I'm not good at tying bows and I DID get permission from the "boss" Kristin, sooo.... Anyway, here's the card that I came up with.

It's called a criss-cross card. I found the instructions online and attempted my first one at the retreat I went to in October. I love 'em! They're so cute and so easy to make!! Let's see what you can come up with. A card, a layout, an altered item...anything with a button and bow (or a knot!) ;) Post it over in the challenge thread and you can be this week's winner! Hope everyone has a super week!

It's a guy thing

Happy Monday! Today's challenge over at Paper Therapy was to create a project for a guy. For whatever reason, I really struggled with this! I'm such a nerd!! My kid is a boy!!! That's what all of my layouts are! Hahaha! Anyway, I guess I wasn't feeling a layout this week again so I went ahead and made a card.

I really love this dinosaur stamp! It's perfect for boy cards! I definitely see more of these lil cuties in my future!! Anyway, c'mon over to Paper Therapy and let's see your take on this week's challenge. Create something for (or about) that special guy in your life and you just might be this week's winner!

I hope everyone has a fantastic week full of family, friends, and lots of good food!!! Happy Early Thanksgiving!

Just another Manic Monday

Hahaha! I love that song! :) Happy Monday! I hope everyone had a great weekend. I did! I finally got a much needed haircut on Saturday and on Sunday a friend and I took the kiddos to Monkey Joe's! Such a good time!'s Monday so there's another challenge posted at Paper Therapy. Because Thanksgiving is FAST approaching, this week's challenge is to create a thank you card or an "I am thankful for" layout. I chose to go the card route again. These PT girls are a bad influence on me! ;) I've been making a lot more cards than layouts lately! I need to jump back on the layout bandwagon or I'll never be anywhere close to caught up! LOL!

C'mon over to Paper Therapy and check it out. There is some awesome inspiration in the gallery and fantastic ladies to chat with. It's always a good time and there's always something going on. Post your take on the Thank You Challenge in the forums for a chance to be this week's winner!

Another Monday, Another Challenge

Happy Monday everyone! I have to admit, I struggled a little bit this week with the challenge over at Paper Therapy. Our challenge this week was an ad inspired challenge. We had to use the following ad as the inspiration for our project.
Here is what I came up with. I took advantage of the bright colors and used that as inspiration for this card.
I hope everyone has a great week. I can't wait to see how this ad inspires you. Post your project in the Paper Therapy challenge forum for the chance to be this week's winner! :)

It's Monday and that means....

another Challenge over at Paper Therapy! The Challenge for week #5 is to have a hole somewhere in your project. How you accomplish this is totally up to you! I actually had a lot of fun with this challenge. I had an idea of what I wanted to do, but wasn't really sure how to accomplish it. With the help of my handy dandy Cricut, here's the card I created!

If you still haven't played with us over at Paper Therapy, this is a good week to start! With this being the first Monday of the month, there is a prize to be won! Post a picture of your project over in the Week #5 Challenge thread for your chance to win! Hope everyone has an awesome scrappy week! :)
