A FUNNY video and a freebie!

Ok, this has nothing to do with scrapbooking, but it is so freakin' funny I had to share!  A family member sent it to me on email.  It is a Baby Shower Game video, but it is NOT guess the baby food or guess the belly'll just have to play it to see for yourself!

Go here to laugh hysterically!

I also made ANOTHER it is...

And here is a little weekend gift for you...just because!  Happy Friday!  Image is linked.

Have a great weekend!

2 more Cards and my Speed Scrap LO

Good morning!

Thought I would show you the next couple cards I did for my gift sets I am making (see my first entry yesterday to see the others I've made).  I am totally addicted to this now!  Every new one I make is mw new favorite!

I really like this one because she showed us tips on making the elements "pop" off the page.  I love the idea of printing the flower on and then adding another on top instead of just attaching a flower, the printed one adds even more dimension.   You can get get this template and all the others here at ScrapMatters.  And you get points toward the challenge system for each on you do, how cool is that?

And this one is not one of the It's In the Cards Challenge templates, it was a freebie on World Card Making Day which I have now gone and collected all of, they did a card template blog train!  This one is by winkasheart.  You can get it on her blog on her October 4 entry.

And the back...

And here is my layout from last night's ScrapMatters Speed usual I had a really fun time and I learned a couple new skills too!

Ok, I'm off to start my day, see ya all later!
Don't forget the template freebie in the next entry!

Layouts, announcements and a freebie!

Well, I have been busy catching up this week and have done a few layouts...

Here's one with Franziska and Flergs new collab kit Sugar Rush...I just LOVE this kit, soooooo cute, look at that little dude in there!  And, did you know Franziska is at Scrapbook Graphics now?  Yep, that's right!  Check out her new store!

I also did this layout with Polka Dot Plums' new kit Ashlea Brooke...again my favorite kind of colors, bright and happy, which, of course, led to this:

And, I did this LO with Mimi's very pretty kit Amanda...I love purple, my favorite color, and I love it combined with these blues and browns! Even though I didn't use the purple in this LO, I will on another one! Color is definitely the first thing I look at in a kit, if I love the colors, I will want to buy it!

Now, onto announcements...
Scrapmatters has 2 Speedscraps coming up...these are soooo fun!  If you haven't tried them, you really should!  I know it sounds a bit intimidating, but it's really so fun!

The first is tonight, go here for details:

And take a looksie at this participation prize!
Yep, you get it just for participating in the Speed Scrap!

And there is one Friday afternoon:

And here's what you'll get for completing that Speed Scrap: for the freebie...
You know the "tired" layout I did with Mimi's kit (above)?  I made it into a template for you!  Hope you like it!  Here it is, image is linked...

Ok-that's it for tonight, I wanted to get this all posted, because I am going to be speed scrapping tonight!!  See you there!

Look what I made!

I have been busy creating HYBRID cards! My first hybrid projects and it is sooooo fun! I am getting to use all my old traditional scrap tools and a few embellies too. I am making the cards from Scrap Matters' It's in the Cards challenges running right now. i am making 13 of each card so I will have 13 sets to give to teachers and friends for Christmas gifts. I am so excited, this is a gift I would love to receive! I always make homemade cocoa mix too to give away for the Holidays, so this year I will give a pretty package of homemade cards and some fresh cocoa mix to drink while writing out a card or two.

Here are the three I have done so far...

That's it for now, off to work on card #4 and a couple layouts...
