He wrote "lighted".  No biggie..you get the idea. The fact that he can make videos and upload them to you tube is good enough for me ;0)

A great week for me!

This was a good week for me. First off I received an email from Miss Amy Mattes. She is an up and coming digital designer who has asked me to be part of her new design team ;0) And of course I said. YES!! She creates many wonderful digital designs that can be downloaded onto your computer and  crafty people like YOU can make fun stuff like this card that I just made last night! Isn't that fun!?? You can check out some of her great designs at these two etsy shops: http://www.etsy.com/shop/chocolatesundae and http://www.aboyslife.etsy.com/. The best part is, once you buy and download these designs you can manipulate them anyway that you want...size, color, shape..etc.

I made this card for my school staff who just happened to send me flowers since I have been out sick for awhile. I thought it was suitable for the occassion ;0)

The second most fabulous thing that happened to me this week is that I won a gigantuan spool of ribbon from May Arts this week! It isn't just a yard or two is about 30 yards of ribbon! HELLO! Cute stuff. Here it is!

Posted by PicasaLastly, I received a big box of goodies from my Tallyscrapper sis Pam!  She sent me the most awesome bunch of love. Thank you so much for all the fun. I should have taken a picture of it,but of course I already started digging into it all!  Thanks!

Oh and p.s. here is my layout for a cool new challenge blog called "Hello Cutie Challenges".  Go check it out..

ooh and a giveaway at PURPLE PUMPKIN here!

A tally Oops and a Nerdy Girl?

So I got Scrappy Last night and came up with two layuts wihich I lurve! Yes I do.
Here is my first. It was for a challenge on the Survivor Challenge on Tallyscrapper.  The prompt called for us to use a GREEN DAY song in our Title ..YAY! and 2 pics...easy enough since I heart Green day.  Problem is that I left out 2 other key ingredients..it had to be monocromatic and needed something plucked from nature on the layout...whoops. I remember that now..back to the drawing board.  At least I got a good layout out of it!

And then there is a call for a guest Designer for the Nerdy Victorious girls on The Envious Blog...Lots of fun. I have visited their blog many times for inspiration and I like their style.  THEN I SAW THE CALL and thought..why not?  So here is the layout I made.
So now I must help the kids with homework and then I am off to more scrapping.  A new layout for my survivor challenge. And just more scrappy fun because today I feel inspired!
