First thing Monday morning the delivery man just about bashed down my door and handed me this huge box – my Chatterbox DT application stuff!
I pole-axed a kid and broke a nail in my effort to get the box open fast enough. I think my face must have looked like Gollum in “Lord of the Rings“…..”Come to me…..my pretties!”…..
When I finally got the box open Oh! What magical eye candy there was inside. The entire new range of “Happy Days” papers, plus all the embellishments you could wish for. PLUS a heap of other stuff all from the “Artsi.liscious” range – can we say FELT? Can we say BLING?
Without sounding too much like a suck up, I have always loved CBX papers and this range is no exception. They have always been so versatile and pretty – I come back to them again and again in my scrapping.
As part of our DT application we had to make one LO and one other project – with all that stuff! OMG I had so much stuff left over but you can’t have it! It’s all mine, I tell you MINE!…….Sorry, that was the inner Gollum speaking again.
So I have done both my projects and I will be taking pics of them over the weekend. Sorry, no sneek peeks for you until judgement day. I’ll just keep my fingers crossed and hope that I become a part of the CBX team. Did I say how much I love their stuff? Courtney, if you read this, I’ll have your next baby if you let me on the team!! LOL…only kidding…..maybe.
In the meantime I got a lovely email from the Editor over at Somerset Memories (my fave all time mag thanks to Deb who mailed me my first copy last year and changed my life). They are publishing 5 of my LO’s in the December/January issue of the mag PLUS I will be helping to write a special article to go along with them. Hooley Dooley!!! I am doing little baby circles dancing all over the house! Woohoo!
I am going to celebrate in front of the Opening Night of the Olympics tonight with a bottle of champers and some buttered popcorn. The Diet can go hang!
The most fun I have had this week has been playing with my Alcohol Inks and I blame Karen over at KSK for this! She got me started using the stuff and I haven’t been able to let it go since. So much fun!
This LO was completed using the Crate Paper papers just released and I have done the title using the Alcohol INks sponged across the back of the clear acetate letters. LOVE the effect!
I mixed Denim with Ginger, Eggplant and Pesto to create this look.
My other project of note this week has been a quickie (although it may not look it) – a Creative Imaginations Shadow Box. I filled in each segment with a Hannah pic and then decorated it with My Mind’s Eye die cuts and plenty of Prima flowers and Doodlebug buttons.
I reccommend doing one for a gift for one of your little ones, or even for a relative – what about Grandma’s birthday? Fill it with pics of the grandkiddies. Or a more modern version for Hubby’s Garage – fill it with pics of his special car. There’s no limit with what you could do with it! Check it out at KSK’s shop HERE.
There’s more to show you but I have to go play now. Oh and I s’pose I should do some housework too I guess 😦 Do I have to?? My Kingdoom for a maid and a nanny sometimes, you know what I mean?
Take care everyone – and good luck to all of our special athletes competing in the Olympics for the next two weeks!
