Wonderful Wednesday Sneak Peeks

I have the honor of being on the design team of a new kit club which launches tomorrow TopShelf Memories. Taryn is the owner and she also runs a scrap retreat house in Pennsylvania. I'll have those links for you later but I wanted to pop in and give you some sneaks of the the girl kit that will be launching tomorrow. I'm in love with this kit and have already made 4 lo's & 2 cards and am in the process of making 2 other lo's. She'll have a boy themed kit as well so check back tomorrow for the links.

Tweet Up!

So a couple of weeks ago I went to Tulsa for the weekend for some R&R from Nana and everyday life. I also went so I could meet some friends from Twitter in real life. They live in OKC and Tulsa is half way for both of us. I've known Heather for a while now. She has a super cute Etsy shop called A Scrappy Design and you'll find the link for it in the column on the right. I'm on her design team because all that creating of supplies doesn't leave much room for actually scrapping. Or so she says. :)  I've probably followed Heather for a year or more now. Well recently I started following her friend Jami (boycrazedmomma) because that is how Twitter is. You follow people who are friends of friends and have similar interest and so forth. I already knew these girls were funny and fun! But it was like meeting two new BFF's. And they are BFF's in real life and have been for years. They finish each others sentences and all and have stories galore for years back. Anyway we meet at Cheesecake Factory for lunch and then did some scrappy/thrifting/mall shopping.  I was a bit surprised that we went to a scrapbook store and I was the ONLY one who bought anything.  So here's some pics from our day.  I hope to see them both again before I go west.

Some things must come to an end

Thought I'd show you my last layouts from the Scraptivity Kit Club.  Their kit this month is beautiful and full of GCD Studios and Shabby Green Door patterned papers and stamps. I even made some cards I like!

That's all for today. Need to hope in the shower to go to a luncheon. Hopefully my new computer will be here today as well!

Team Jacob or Team Edward?

EDWARD! Of course!!!

Ask me anything

When did you start scrapbooking? What made you start?

I did my first scrapbook for my mom. Someone gave her a boxed kit and I did it during a blizzard in Denver. I realize though that I've always made little photo books and scrapping related stuff.

Ask me anything

One last call, for your final goodbye; who do you call?

Gosh that's a hard one for me. I'd say Nana because I'd want her to know that I loved her although I know she already knows that. If not Nana then def my friend Keith.

Ask me anything

Blame It On The Moon

So how's your week been? Let me tell you it's been a little funky around here! And several of my friends have been feeling the funk as well.  This funk is not of the George Clinton and the P*Funk AllStars kind of funk either. It's the kind of funk you want to shake right off because it be bringing you DOWN. Hopefully it's passing. I'm sure my weekend away coming up will do much for my attitude :)

So all this talk about the moon started with the full moon that was Sunday night and my Full Moon Dreamboard that I did in conjunction with  Jamie Ridler's blog.  I don't really know what all the images represent to me.  Of course some are just representational and some are suggestive and the words are inspiring. I bet your wondering why I put "wear cute underwear" on the dream board! That is mostly about my happiness project that I am working on with a group of Twitter girls and not saving the cute underwear for the best date kind of thing or vacation or whatever. Today is as good a day as any right? And also you never know what might happen so be prepared for anything. I'd really like to take this Soul Reflections class before the next full moon but we will see how that goes.  It's definitely on my list.

This was the Snow Moon. Funny that for once this winter there was no snow here. So what are you dreaming about this month?
