A bunch of Ghoulish goodies AT Scrapbook Supplies Direct

HI all , time for my post to show you what I have been up to on Scrapbook Supplies Direct. Well the new kit has been released and it is ready to go. It has so much in it and so many creative projects to make. The entire kit will come with everything you need including tutorial sheets with photos to show you how to make each and every creation. This will be a great way to pump out those Halloween photos right after the holiday. Here are a few projects that I made just for that kit.

Now these are only my creations, but there are so much more to see, to do , to make. Leslie our guest Designer for October has made a wonderful selection of goodies for you as well. AND of course our fabulous Susan has also shared her expertise. This kit will have you working your fingers to the bone..which seems highly appropriate for an October Halloween themed kit. Don't you think :)

Also our Halloween Hoopla will be coming soon ! There will be games and prizes..and a lot of fun. You won't want to miss it. Halloween weekend we'll have lots of
games (riddles, bingo, scavenger hunts, and more),
challenges, swaps, and of course give-a-ways!
This year our grand prize will be a
PhotoBook Maker (valued at $100.00)!

It's a yummy treat for anyone who loves to create their
own books. Best of all it only takes ONE ticket to win!
(Tickets are issued to the winner of contests & challenges)
Many prizes!!!!
The mailing for details will be going out soon, if you'd

New kit @ Tallyscrapper, a challenge and everyday life !

Well I just need to get with it and post now don't I ? So here I am sharing some of the things that I made from the Tallyscrapper kit this month. It is a fabulous kit and sold out immediately (as usual) Their kits are HOT !
I am also hosting a challenge at Tallyscrapper called "Skeletons in the Closet" It is an altered item challenge. And there are great prizes ! Here is my sample journal for the challenge.

Go check it out !
In other news, something amazingly touching..beautiful happened to me on Friday. I am still in disbelief about it all. To make a very long story short.... When I was a kid I was very good friends with a boy who lived down the street from us. He was a lot of fun and completely geeky with me. We were friends from grade school - high school. After high school we both went to college in separate directions. We saw each other once after our first year of school and that was that..sort of lost touch. Then few years later someone that we knew in common had told me that my friend had tragically died. I felt a huge loss and was so saddened by it all. I became a bit upset with myself for not keeping better contact with him and by then it was too late. BUT THEN FRIDAY HAPPENED .......
On Friday an old friend of mine contacted me via email and told me that our long lost friend was actually alive and well. Someone..who I can't remember told me an awful rumor. I swear if I knew who that person was..."we would have a talk". Anyway regardless of that all, I found out someone that I thought had left us,maybe 15 years ago, is here. I contacted him by email and we have been talking now for the past 3 days. I cannot even begin to tell you how blessed that I feel. I feel like now I have another chance with someone that I "lost".
As kids we were really great friends and complete is a pic of us trying to "recreate" a Calvin Klein, Obsession" add.
NEED I SAY MORE ? I think that were were like 15 here ? And no we were never boyfriend/girlfriend..more like brother/ sister. So anyway for the past 3 days we have been catching up and I am so tickled by the whole thing. Who knows the reason things happened like they did..but I do believe that we were brought back together for a reason and I am grateful.

And last famous pic of Mr. Adam and his missing front tooth !
And can't forget Nicholas up on the Rock wall...woohoo. He made it to the top !
Bye for now !

So much fun..I am INSPIRED

Oh my goodness..just got back from Inspiration Unlimited yesterday. It was so amazing. Classes were taught by Layle Koncar, Teresa Collins and Janna Wilson. Their individual styles differed so greatly,yet each andevery singlie one of them inspired me in one way or another. Aside from all of that, they were all so personable, nice ladies and Layle is a riot. Love her sarcasm..a girl after my own heart. Teresa will talk to anyone and is genuine with all, and Janna she impressed me with her charm. She is so pleasant and just about the happiest/fun person that I have encountered in awhile. How refreshing to meet a bunch woman who are not full of themselves. They are all so successful in their own rites..but no one of them has let it get to their heads. I would defintely take a class or go to Inspiration Unlimited again.without a doubt. AND KUDOS TO GINGER, this was her was a fantastic event and I can't thank her enough. Well done ROCK !

I had so much fun with my girlfriends. Illyse, Jenn and Donna were all there too which made it all the more fun. Here is a pic of us with Teresa. Donna was with her mom some of the time so she is not in the shot..that really would have completed it.

We all had a bit of a lucky streak and won some prizes as well. My biggest win was this.....

It was fun, and well worth it..can't wait til next year..I am SO THERE !

And in other news...this is big...well at least big to me....... I made the Design Team on my Beloved Tallyscrapper. I have been there since it opened and I am so excited to be a part of it. My kit is on it's way and I will have a tutorial coming out on the blog soon. I am so darn excited, that I just can't get over it. So those of you Tallysisters that voted for me...thank you so very much. I heart you for so many reasons and you just made my day a little brighter.

Family stuff...Adam lost his first front tooth. Oh my gosh too cute. He looks so funny and cute at the same time. I will post pics later. He is waiting for the tooth fairy to come tonight. Maybe pics tomorrow.
