Wow! It's been a long time since my last posting. August has been a whirlwind here in Michigan. This card pretty much sums it up! I found these Stampin' Up stamps in the drawer and have always been drawn to them and this is a time to remind all my friends of this quote. Just a simple card with whimsical polka dots, a fun scalloped tag and some special buttons I've been loving for quite a while.
Good news has come this past week. I am on Let's Scrap Design Team for September - December 2013! This will offer some good challenges and hopefully some wonderful inspiration for other crafty people.
Also, I have passed the interview and background check for a position as Scrapbook Instructor at the local Michael's. I'm looking forward to extending my talents locally, too.
With Labor Day weekend upon us and the hot muggy days getting shorter, I feel the need for some Autumn breezes and dried leaves to shuffle through.
Love to all!

Here's a layout for a Close to My Heart challenge. I used papers and embellishments from Buzz and Bumble Workshop on the Go, CTMH stamps used were from the My Sunshine and Pinwheel collections, the edges were outlined with CTMH Crème Brulee and Sorbet. I also used a little Buttercup ink on the badges but you really can't tell from the picture. Journaling was done on my computer using Microsoft Word - the swirls are clipart from Microsoft. I'm late for the drawing but wanted to share this fun layout with all of you!

This is a peek into my scrapbook room.
Wow, the pegboards are much fuller now!
The top board was framed at a craft show for $50.
The lower two were framed by me using part of a roll
of funky duct tape for $5.
Love the storage outside of drawers where I can easily find things!
I love baker's twine and decided to make a bow with two lengths of twine. Also - you have to love purple and orange together! The orange paper square was embossed with a Sizzix embossing folder (Bohemian Lace) and then distressed with Tim Holtz's seedless preserves distress ink. The sequins was not difficult - I just dabbed some glue around the edge of the purple paper and let the sequins fall into place.
Somewhat whimsical and colorful! Hope it brightens your day a bit - and you CAN count on me!
