All about the products today...

Today is all about the products! I was going to chatter about life but I'm really more in a scrapbooking mood since I neglected to scrap all weekend (and it was a four day weekend for us). So on to the scrap items that are floating around my brain and hard drive!

If you haven't heard about the blind date contest, you really should mosey on over to the Sausan Designs blog to hear about it. You only have this week to enter... I won't give you the details, but the contest is fun and the kit even better (and on sale only this week)!

And I'm totally loving Tracey Monette's new paper pack, Colour Outside the Lines. I think I will do a monochromatic page using each of these papers because I was quite happy with the way this one came out. See here for credits.

I don't usually buy paper packs, but I have bought a few lately that I haven't yet used, but am dying to do so.

Old Brick House by Jenna Desai.

And Landscape ART Paperie No. 1. by Anna Aspnes.

Okay I have to admit, I cringed when I saw a Christmas layout in the gallery on November 1st. I actually cringed, LOL. It's too soon!!! But two weeks later I am beginning to get in the mood and I'm also starting to see some cute Christmas products in the stores.

Well let me ask you, is there anyone that doesn't love a brush by Michelle Coleman? She has a new snowflake brush that is (I feel like a geek whenever I say it, but here it comes) awesome.

And speaking of awesome, are you guys watching Chuck on Monday nights? It has quickly become my favorite show, I love it. And I love it when they call the sister's boyfriend Captain Awesome, LOL.

Okay, back to scrapping...

And check out these snowflakes by Jackie Eckles and these ones by Leora Sanford. I love a good snowflake... can you tell?

Well, I know there are ton more Christmas products out there, and a ton more will appear within the next few weeks. It will be crazy trying choose which to buy, LOL. So good luck with that!

In the meantime, I think I will get started on some pages using snowflakes! Have a great day!

a little Rachel love

This has been such a crazy month for me. I volunteered for too many projects plus the addition of Halloween, birthday parties and more. Crazy, it has been, I tell you.

But over the last few weeks my first turned 8 years old and had her first slumber party. What chaos! LOL I can't believe the noise that little girls can create. Thank goodness the weather was nice so they could play outdoors part of the time. And as part of her present I took her to her first concert, the Hannah Montana/ Jonas Brothers tour. The only other times I can remember her being this excited was when she found out she was getting a sister and when she learned she was going to Disneyland. LOL

We had a good time. I told her that I had been to lots of rock concerts, but this was my first pop concert and she thought that was funny. LOL

On to scrapping...

Here are a few pages featuring my sweet Rachel:
