She Can Fly

Last week my daughter had a Swim-A-Thon for her team. At the end they all got to goof around and dive however they wanted. I got this really cool shot of her. It looks like she's just hangin out in the air. The Swim-A-Thon was great. She did a great job and helped raise alot of money for the team. Her first meet is in November so I guess I'll be getting plenty opportunity's for swim pictures.

I actually scrapped the picture already too! That's record for me. lol I'm lovin Basic Grey's Urban Prairie, also check out the letters. They are Basic Grey's micro-chip alphabet stickers and WOW I'm using them on everything!! The only problem is, they come in 3 basic colors only. I actually e-mailed BG to see if they will be releasing them in any other color. I'm greedy and want matching letters for all the lines. I'm seeing a hot orange for Ambrosia, turquoise for Urban Prairie and well.... you get the hint.

Finally made my Halloween card for the Challenge over at InkaDink Challenge Blog. Andrea has created a forum now, complete with gallery. Check it out! The cute button embellies I used on the card are from a RAK that I won. Jenn Stevens makes them and they are just adorable!! You can check her stuff out on her blog.

Creating Keepsakes Convention Loot

Well, better late than never. I finally took pic's of my Convention loot! Some of it is missing because I used it already. The convention was how many weeks ago?! Anyway, it was a great time. I rode with my Mom, always and adventure....and we met 3 ladies from our LSS. We had a great time. The five of us took a Basic Grey class together and then spent the rest of the day shopping! If you've never been, give it a go!! The shopping is awesome. All of the brads, ribbon and even some of the chipboard are from the dollar scrap booking!! I was also able to get my hands on Wassail and Bazzills new Swiss Dot card stock. YUM. Nicer looking in person. I was also able to get matching chipboard for alot of the Basic grey lines. SUPER YUM. Sassafras Lass was just downright overwhelming and now that I think about it... I should have gotten more!! Prima made me crazy, I bought 3 of the new flower packs and what a time I had choosing! I also got some felt alphabet letters, owl bling and some felt frames.

Cosmo Cricket Christmas Card Bonanza

Yesterday being World Card Making Day I thought I would post some cards. I couldn't actually make any cards yesterday because I was in Hartford CT at the Creating Keepsakes Convention. That's going to have to be another post. Purchases are unavailable until hubby is tucked away safely at work!!
I made these with my Cosmo Cricket 9000 piece kit from QVC and a few things from my stash. This is the second Comso Cricket kit I got from QVC. Finally used them! LOL The tree design I flat out lifted because it was so damn cute. The rest are from my own little brain. Most of them are heavily Stickled and I'm a little bummed that it didn't show up in the pics. So pretend that they glimmering ok? I know I'm early for Christmas but this is the first year that I ACTUALLY made a Christmas card in time in time for Christmas! Actually these are the first Christmas cards I've ever made. Card making, my new passion. Add that to the list of craft addictions. Anyway, hope you like them.
