Craft Warehouse Design Team!

I'm so excited to announce that I made the 2009 Craft Warehouse DT! This is a local craft store that has 9 differnt stores located in Oregon, Washington & Idaho. I just happened to be in the Salem store showing off my layout the February Scrapbook Trends magazine to one of the gals that works there...and she gave me a flyer to enter to win a spot on the Design team. So I quickly bought all the fun products I would need to complete 2 lo's, 2 cards, and a mini album....and set my mind to it!

Well then you know how life is all that fun stuff sat there and sat there until just a week before the submission deadline....I went and got the flyer and realized I had to mail it in too, feeling discouraged I thought I could never be forced to be creative in such a short amount of time. But then when I pulled all that fun product out....I was INSPIRED! I love the creations I made for Craft Warehouse and was thrilled to "get the call"!

Here is a link to my bio and projects: Craft Warehouse DT.

Thanks for sharing my excitement!

Love bug

I just can't stop scrapping these adorable pic's of Kelsey, her doctors appt went well yesterday. She is 1 cm seems so unreal that my baby is going to be a mother....which yes of course makes me a grandma. I'm still struggling with that a little...but I can't wait to meet my grandson!

This is mainly Cosmo Cricket products with the exception of a little RustyPickle (always have to put my fav manufacter in there somewhere).

Love these little chipboard bugs, as soon as I spotted those I was inspired to do a love bug lo!

Thanks for looking!

a lo of beautiful Kelsey

Another one of Kelsey with her adorable belly...of course she is much bigger now at 9 months as you can see from the prev post. I love the dimension of these flowers: I call it the punch & scrunch technique. Just punch with flower shapes scrunch them up and use glue dots to adhere them together. Very simple & cute!

Thanks for looking!

9 months...and counting

I took a few new pics of my beautiful dd today...we have just a few weeks to go before the arrival! She is feeling good except she says it's not so cute when he kicks and squiggles just is uncomfortable. She is in her nesting continuously and working on getting everything just perfect for little Hunter!

She's lookin beautiful!

Some new stuff....nope....not an April fools joke!

I had fun creating this mini album using pics from a camping trip with the boys last summer...I just love this line from Rusty Pickle: Under the Stars. I added lots of tags for extra pics & embellishments by cutting some of the pages in thirds!

This mini album"K" for Kelsey & Kenzie will be featured in mag in I can't give any sneak peeks BUT included in the article are complete instructions for completing this chipboard/acrylic album.

Yea back on my blog after the debut in February Scrapbook Trends magazine! I love this lo of my dh & I! Let's see if anyone reads'll send a rak to whoever can guess the story of how we hints...but it was wild fate!

and another fun project that was in the February Handmade magazine! I used clear shelve liner to back this...just add a couple candles behind it for a romantic decoration!

Finally scraped a few of those pregnancy pics of my dd, this one is with the Candyland line from Rusty those bright colors!
