My final round

at Scrap-tastic was to do a little bit of everything. Requirements were to do a one or two page LO with sewing, stampimg, painting, journaling ( 3 sentences with bullets), 5 photos, and 5 different colors. Since it has just started snowing up here and very little snow so far, I had to go with last years pictures of Hayleigh in the snow. The snowing has really gave me the itch for some snow pictures. After all, we are living up where we should see some good snow falls again. Thanksgiving is calling for snow and I'm looking forward to it ...because I don't have to be out driving in it! A great day to relax and eat too much and hang out by the fireplace and look at it out the window! We'll back to my final submission...

has really been hard on me this year...already!!! I have been sick for a month now. I just can't seem to kick this! All I did yesterday was sleep. I tried to stay awake, but my body said sleep. I've had a cold in my sinuses, chest, and now it's back in my throat. It was so sore and swollen that my pills were stuck in my throat...yuck! I'm hoping that this wave of antibotics will kick it. Just wanted to let people know I'm still around...I just have not felt like doing much! Charles' mom is coming for Thanksgiving, so I have to be well soon!
I'm trying to work on my final LO for Scrap-tastic today. I have until Sunday to upload, so I'm ok for now. I have an idea for it...I just need to get it to work out on paper! I'm having to pull from old pictures because I have not felt like going out and getting new pictures. It's been rainy a lot here so my pictures of Hayleigh playing in leaves has not happen yet. We have snow and rain mixed the rest of this week so no luck until next week.

My month as Guest Designer is up today for Scraplove. I had a blast being the Guest Designer...thank you Suzanne, Em, and the DT!

I'm still the month intern for Scrappinmojo. I have my second challenge posted there....if you get a chance go check it out! I'm giving a set of Elsie alphabet stamps away to one lucky participate! The whole DT is hosting challenges all month and are giving away prizes at the end of the month. There's plenty of challenges to get you motivated!

I've also posted to the right side of my blog a give away for Susan's Scrapbook Shack for signing up as a new member during the month of duty this month is member recruitment. I will draw one lucky name out of the hat for an RAK from me just for becoming a member.

Round 6

at Scrap-tastic was a touch on for me. I love to make cards be not with so much pressure. I hope it's good enough to keep me in the game!

I made this card from a wonderful product line called Paper Trunks. You should check them out. I love their rich and bold colors and the design of their products. If you are a stamp lover you will love the extra long clear stamps.

I made it to round #6

at Scrap-tastic. For this round we have to make a thank you card using chipboard, buttons, ribbon, stamping and/or rub-ons. I was not expecting a card! I love to make cards, but I'm no great card maker!!! We'll see if I can hang in there. I'll post my card when I get it finished. Wish me luck, I'm going to need it this week!!!

I spy

some of my LOs and projects at the following:
Scrap Street Magazine LO "I can Ride" The November Issue p.28
Tip Junkie photo block "for the kids"
Eventful Moments in Life Pumpkin Patch

I won the contest at Scrappinmojo Survivor. There's some asewome talent there and great friends, so I'm very honored to win! Along with a goodie package I will be hosting weekly challenges for the month of November. I'm looking forward to challenging everyone!

I lost by one point at Scrappin With Grace to Renee. There's some great talent and great friends there also! I had a blast doing Survivor Football. They are starting a new contest, a Treasure Hunt. It should be alot of fun!

I will not find out the winner at 2 Croppin Cousinz until the weekend. I don't plan on winning anything there. You racked up alot of points by doing the weekly crop activities and that's our date night. We get little time together as it is, so I was not going to give up a month for scrapbooking. I hung in there did all the challenges and had a that's good enough for me!

I day dream of Cancun!
