Challenge in Progress

My friend Jessica has been posting some pretty awesome pages on her blog. She was telling me about this site called Scrapbook Challenges and she talked me into signing up and giving one a try. I haven't scrapped in so long that some of you are probably wondering if I have abandonded it altogether. So not only as proof that I am still scrapping, but to also get some ideas from you all to finish it up, here it is...

I plan on stickling the letters "BOWL", but am thinking the diamonds need something, too. Maybe faux stitching drawn around the edges? Or just a simple black line? Or a star brad inside each one (to match the stars in the patterned paper)? There will also be string or fiber threaded through the loops, and I'll adjust the "let's" a bit. Journaling will go on the left in the blue space- not sure if I'll put that on another piece of cardstock or what. So come on girls, give me your ideas! =o)

I've been waiting for my friend to receive this card so I could post it. Another Ketto stamp I got at Stamping Bella!

Crafty avoidance

I was Skypebooking with Jessica today and she commented that I "sure have been making a lot of cards lately". There's a reason. I mean, besides that it's fun. I have been avoiding scrapbooking because I have managed to get all out of order and disorganized. I have pages in progress, pages I've pulled out of albums, pictures pulled out to start a page... and I've jumped around a bit instead of working in order. So in otherwords, before I can jump back in to scrapbooking I've got a big mess to sort out!! In the meantime, I'll continue to use other crafty persuits to avoid the mess...

I've been eyeing the Ketto line on Stamping Bella for some time now, and I finally decided to start with Mismatch Ketto. She's super cute! I stepped out of my box with the patterns and colors- these are all bolder and a little crazier than I normally do. Which is why I didn't add any fun embellishments. But now that I see it here, I'm thinking maybe I'll add some ribbon or something else... hmmmm. Thoughts?

New Colors!

Is there anything more exciting than new colors? Brand spanking new ink? =o) Yep, I need a life! These are the new CTMH colors that are being released in the new Fall catalog. That's one of the great things about being a consultant- I can get my hands on new goodies a bit earlier.

Valentines in August?

I have been slammed at work and haven't had the chance to be crafty, but I was going through my pictures and found these Valentines I made for a couple of my co-workers this year. The paper, stamp, and flowers are CTMH. Not sure about the ribbon and bling. =o)

Budding Seamstress?

No, probably not. I didn't get to scrap this weekend... I know, the weekend isn't over, but tomorrow I'm hosting a weenie roast for my coworkers so I'll spend the day cleaning up and shopping. Today instead of scrapping or making cards I busted out the sewing machine and started on the kitchen curtains. The same kitchen curtains I purchases materials for close to 2 years ago. Yep, 2 YEARS... LOL. No pics today, but I'll post when I'm done. I'm about half-way done. =o)

New Boss

I work from home an my coworkers are located all over the state. We just got a new boss, and we were all getting together for two days of staff development so I made this card for everyone to sign. We also chipped in to get him some gift certificates as he's moving here from Wyoming and will be living out of a hotel until he can get settled.
In other news, Jessica and I are planning to Skypebook tonight. I'm hoping to get some actual scrapbooking done!!
