Friday Faves!

I haven't done Friday Faves in a while, so I figured it was time. Here are 5 things I am loving right now:

1. Giveaways. Who doesn't love them?! Check out this one:

2. My new leather jacket
I got this one, in brown:

3. My latest scrapbook layouts.
Here is a sneek peak of one of them:
(I'll be able to show you the whole thing soon.)

4. Coffee. Especially Starbucks, but I make a pretty mean cup at home too.

5. Facebook. I enjoy how easy it is to keep in touch with all my peeps.

See you around!

New hair color, new clothes!

This was a super busy but fun weekend for me! I got clothes! And and new hair cut/color! I spent $150 and got 3 pairs of pants, 6 shirts, a sweater and some shoes. Not bad, huh?! :) i am happy, since I love all my clothes, AND I now don't have to shop any more until spring! (only 2 more Christmas presents to get and I will be done with those too!)

So, here's a shot of my new hair color. The styling isn't great here, since this was taken 7 hours after I fixed it, but the color doesn't change. :)

Thanks for coming by!


I have a new layout up on the Couture Cardstock blog tomorrow morning (Monday!)

My favorite projects...

Yay! Time to share a few of my favorite projects that I have ever created. Once again, I feel as though I have jumped to a new level in my art. My ability to put onto paper what I "see" in my head when imagining a project is developing and expanding. I am also becoming more patient, and willing to leave everything unattached for days until I find the perfect arrangement, which may have more to do with the improved outcome then my skill or talent! :) Anyway, here are two new projects from this week.
Supplies: Paper: Pink Paislee; Cardstock: Couture Cardstock; Bling, felt: Junkitz, Prima; Alphabet: American Crafts: Mist: Glimmer Mist by Tattered Angels "Walnut Gold"

Supplies: Paper: Craft Sassy, MAMBI; Alphabets: American Crafts; Bling: Kaisercraft; Rub-ons: Hambly Screen Prints, Creative Imaginations

Thanks for coming by!

The Summer I Was Two...

It's Monday! Welcome to the week, everyone! :) It is sunny and chilly here in Indiana today, but I have a bright and fun Summer album to share today. I use a Bo Bunny chipboard album, and Sassafras Lass' "Amplify" collection to create this album. I decided to write all of the page titles as though my son was commenting on the activities happening in the photos. My title is "The Summer I Was Two."

I learned to swing by myself. I learned to live with my mom constantly taking photos.
I saw a lot of water. I planted a garden.
I saw some really big stuff. I discovered corn on the cob.

I played with my buddy. I went to the zoo.

Thanks for coming by! See you soon!
