For today's blog hop I did this cute little picture frame using some of their winter rub-ons. It is a little sad for me, because I probably will not see snow like that again for a long while. Now that we are in Texas, there is a part of me that is going to miss playing in the snow. My hubby is thrilled because it means no more shoveling for him. Still it was fun during the time we lived in Massachusetts. Anyway, happy hopping!!

My Last Hoorah...





with A Million Memories as a design team member. These are from their cute October kit. They have added three new members and four of us are moving on. I am taking leave of kit clubs for a while. Whew, they are more time consuming than working for manufacturers. I think that is where I will keep my focus for now. Well, that, and I am Hayden's home room mom this year at his school. I will still be hanging around AMM though, because the girls just rock over there. Plus Michelle always has such great items in her store. I hope you take the time to come check it out and the forums as well. Here is the link http://www.amillionmemories.com

Some "Boo-tiful" lo's



Just doing a few lo's using Nikki Sivils' "Boo-tiful" collection. I wanted to show that even if you don't celebrate Halloween, you can still use some of the papers for a beautiful lo. Also, if you are like me and don't have many scary pics, all you need to do is think outside the box. Above I used some pics of candy corn to do a lo. Actually I kind of like them (a litte too sugary though), but at this time of year I hear that song "I don't like candy corn" sung on Noggin all the time. I just had to do a lo about it. After all it is a part of my life, lol.

Twisted Sketch #18!!

Anam should have the challenge up sometime today. I wanted to post the sketch and my take on it for you. I didn't change a thing this time! I adore this sketch. Our twist was to use ribbon and two photos. I plan on using the sketch again, but using it like Anan did in her drawing. I love it with the bordered paper like that. Cute! Anyway come play along at http://www.twistedsketches.com/

E.A.D. DESIGN'S


I am going to let this post stand. The actual blog hop is "NEXT TUESDAY" not today, DOH!

This lo is completely devoted to these adorable rub-ons. I know I have said it before, and I must sound like a broken record. However, the main thing I love about these rub-ons is that they are "vinyl". This makes them so durable. I can put them on another sheet of paper and cut them out. They are heavy enough to keep their shape, so can use them as embellisments. Some of my favorite rub-ons from them are these cute little trees. There are ton's more cute one as well, but you know, they can't all go on the lo!

Come check out my challenge on the Pebbles blog




My challenge for you is "Getting Distressed". No, I don't want you getting distressed over your project. I just want you to "distress" that project! We've all see the style out there, and when the mood hits me, I like to add that distressed look to my pages. It is ever so easy to do. Just take something and rough up the edges of those papers, add a little ink and there you go. You have an instant distressed look. Come check out to see what some of the Pebbles design team did with my challenge at http://pebblesinc.blogspot.com/
