It's a mini book my good friend Ly Le made this holiday season, and it must be seen and touched to really be appreciated! It's made from Teresa Collins' NOEL line along with some amazing hand-made flowers and unique one-of-a-kind embellishments. It's truly breathtaking in the details, and colors and textures feel so rich and expensive.
I'm thinking I need to make one for my Grandmother for Christmas.
Lucky Me!! She's teaching this beauty at several stores in the area, so if you're thinking you need to make one as a gift for someone special (like me!), you're in luck too! Just hop on over to the Lytle Scrapper blog to find out where you can sign up. But you'd better hurry, Ly's classes always fill up quickly, and I wouldn't want to see you miss out!

This "Quite Contrary" line from My Mind's Eye was the line I saw at CHA winter that really, really struck me and let me tell you, I was beyond excited that when I found out I would be designing with it this month! I mean seriously, is there a paper line that screams my name any louder? I don't think so! If you know me at all, you know I love me some bright, bright colors! And of course, pair the above mentioned paper line with an entire jar of matching Prima flowers, some blingy-bling and matching ribbon, and you KNOW I'm in heaven!
Here's what was inspired by this fabulous kit:
My Favorite Thing: Of course that would be my little nephew Clayton! I built this layout on a sheet of white cardstock from my stash...and for a little extra fun, I filled in the letters of the word "favorite" from the cardstock title block with quickie glue and sprinkled on some red glitter. I even busted out the "swiss dots" cuttlebug folder for the yellow circle here...it added just the right touch to an otherwise boring cardstock circle :)
Happy Bird Day: My Friend Patty is such a nut...'nuff said about that! Here, I used my new Martha Stewart punch for the first time on the vertical yellow cardstock strip, and I just LOVE it...isn't it fun? I also couldn't resist adding a little "googly" eye from my stash onto the cardstock bird in the kit...it just totally added a little character!
Life Is Good: I just love the title blocks that come with this kit...it's nice to have a title premade for a change...it frees up time to do other stuff, like layer flowers and make ribbon leaves! The flower centers here are from my stash...I'm not exaggerating when I say I think I've had these corduroy brads for at least 6 or 7 years!
Hello Card: Putting that cuttlebug to good use again! And I just love the little stamp set that came in the kit! For my sentiment here, I stamped the little bracket shape onto white cardstock, stamped my sentiment inside and mounted it to the front of the card with foam tape after trimming it...simple and adorable!
In other news, I'm working on something pretty exciting and should be able to share with you very soon! Stay tuned...

Sew Adorable: Nope, I just couldn't resist the play on words for my title! These photos are of my daughter Ashley when she was about 4 years old (almost 19 years ago!!!) Aren't all those little chipboard sewing embellies so much fun? That chipboard needle and thread just kill me! I added a little detail to mine with my Stardust gel pen, and the silver just shimmers in real life!

It's a two page birthday layout plus a matching birthday card featuring the "Big Top Birthday" line from Creative Imaginations. I just love it's bright colors and whimsical patterns...and that Maya Road chipboard banner on the front of the card...isn't it just sooooooooooo cute?
Class will be at the Scrapbook Garden on Saturday, March 27th at 2:00. If you decide to join me, be sure to bring a black detail pen, foam tape, and a foam paint brush in addition to your regular tool kit. As always, we'll have snacks and prizes and spend the day making a mess with some cool chicks!
And if that news wasn't unbelievable enough, you may want to sit down for this next announcement.
I'm already knee deep in this box I got from MME:And....you guessed it....I'm designing a mini for Mother's Day! Yes....Already!
Ok, that's probably more than your heart can take in one day. I understand if you need to go rest now. Hope to see you at the Garden!

This one's for the family...
Isn't he just as cute as a bug's ear? Growing and learning everyday, and so much fun to be around. I'm so lucky to get to spend time with him every week...he really is the light of my life! He is obsessed with his cars and trucks, can't be bothered to eat much, and says at least 25 words or so. And check out those two teeth...finally!
Auntie and Clayton :)

I like a lot of it....it's pretty cool for the most part, sure, but give me some to scrap with and I get brain freeze...!! What? No flowers, hearts, cute little owls and NO pink? Oh NO!
So needless to say, when I first opened the Urban Ink kit, I was super intimidated. But after I found a few cute sketches and started cutting it all up, I was amazed how much easier these layouts came together than I expected! The patterns made the paper selections easy, and the colors look so great together, I totally ended up loving this line!
Unique: These photos belong to a friend of mine...they are photos her daughters gave her of themseles as a Christmas gift (what a cool idea!). I borrowed them because I wanted to do a layout that featured girls instead of boys, to show just how versatle this kit can really be. Aren't these awesome photos...grungy and edgy and perfect with this paper and those barbed wire rubons! Thanks Linda (and Kathy)!
100% Boy: I fell in love with the WRMK foil border sticker roll in this kit...totally adorable and easy to apply...not too sticky, but sticky enough! I covered the large chipboard star with some paper from the kit, sanded the edges, and backed it with another pattern...I love how it became a catch-all for embellishments and the epoxy sticker title.
My Handsome Hubby: These are a few of my favorite photos of my hubs. I cut the scalloped border with my apron lace punch (yep! still loving that thing!). "Handsome" is cut from Plantin and "My" & "hubby" are cut from my NEW Don Juan cartridge on my cricut, I just love that font! Instead of covering or painting the chipboard stars on this, I simply sprayed them with gold glimmer mist...fast and easy!
Read to Me: This is based on sketch #105 at Sketch Inspiration...their sketches are awesome and make getting started so much easier! The chipboard stars on this one were painted with a light blue acrylic paint, then inked with a combination of chesnut and charcoal. I love the versatility of chipboard, and how you can get so many different looks depending on the media you use. That's what scrapping is REALLY all about for me...getting messy and having fun!
Thanks for taking a peek, and please don't forget to share what you do with YOUR fabulous January kit over on the SD4U Message board...whichever one you chose! You could even win a prize :)
