Blog+Busy Me Equals....No Update in a long time....

HIIIII......I am back....at least for a bit.  Lots of stuff to share and just not enough time to get anything done.  
I was/am a little overwhelmed at the moment, so the blog has just went by the wayside.  I am going to try to schedule some posts, so you my readers might have something new to look at once in awhile.  :)  I love it when you guys come by and leave comments and I hate the fact that I haven't updated in a while.  So, do you want the scoop???

First of all, the reason the blog has been neglected is the fact that I have been trying to work ahead on DT assignments and I just haven't blogged.  The reason for this is that I got a "promotion" of sorts (!) at work!!  It's a new position in the company that has come about because we are a growing company!  How lucky am I that I get to work for a company that can grow in this economy.  VERY LUCKY and blessed.  Plus, I love my job, how cool is that?!  So I am trying to work all my DT assignments ahead of time and get them scheduled for blog postings, because I will be out of town for THREE WEEKS straight for training.  EKKKKK.....I don't leave home for that long.  The poor pooches will think that I have left them for good.  I am sure I will get attitudes when I get back home. 

So that's my news and why the blog hasn't been updated in forever.  AND if I owe you a package.....and I know I do.  IT IS COMING I PROMISE.....I have just not gotten to the P.O. to get anything there.  I will have to mail out the Scrapbook Challenges Kiki Art sponsor package, so I will mail everything out at once.  Which should be this weekend, if I can get Ms. Pamela to pick the March winner in the group before then.  :) 

Speaking of Scrapbook Challenges, I am officially stepping down as of the end of March.  I have LOVED being on this team and Pamela is great to work with.  I just am not going to have the time to devote to the board and it's members that I should.  And perfect timing, there is a DT call going on for Scrapbook Challenges, so you should check it out!  You can do that HERE Design Team Call  There is also a Teachers call that can be found in the same place.  I would love to see one of my followers make the team!   I love Ms. Pamela's sketches and the group, so I will still be around!!

Here is a SC layout that I hadn't posted yet. This was Sketch 190.....I love this layout, it's a fun way to do pics that just aren't the ones you want, but still aren't bad enough to throw in the trash! I love this paper line from Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker...it's the Flaming Butterfly Collection!!
Supplies:  Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker Flaming Butterfly Collection and American Crafts Thickers

And KIKI ART NEWS!!!!!  If you haven't been able to get your hands on Kiki Art, well...you need to try harder!  hee hee...just kidding with you.  BUT, Kiki Art is avaible ONLINE!!!!!  Here is a site where it's available.  GO CHECK IT OUT AND GET SOME!!!!!!!!


And if you put this on your blog, you could win some Kiki Art goodies!!!!  Just copy and paste it onto your blog in your sidebar!

Well, that's it for tonight! Lost is on, so I need to pay attention to something for at least an hour!  Any other LOST fans out there?  LOVE IT and so sad, but yet excited that it will be over soon!!!

Have a Scrappy Kinda Day!!~~Katrina

It's BLOG CRAWL time!!!!!!!

It's TIME!!!!!!!!!!!

Yes, that right!  It's time for a BLOG CRAWL from THREE of some of the hottest new manufacturers in the scrapbooking biz.  :)  It's happening all weekend long and you know you want to crawl along with us!  We don't want you to run, because then you can't see all the wonderful things you can WIN!!!  THAT'S right WIN!!!!!!!

So.....what can you win win win????  Welllll...design team members from ALL THREE companies are participating in giving away handmade gifts to our visitors!!!!  As soon as we found out about this, I was jumping up and down, waving my hand...saying I would participate!!!  I have gotten the "altered art" bug here lately and this was just another excuse to put off a layout or two!  :)   So, you want to see what I made??  

Here's a peek keep reading!!!!!!

And be sure to visit the manufacturers blogs, because they are giving away prize packs!!!  Want some fun stuff??  We know you do.  :)  Here's the links for you!  And if you get lost along the way, just go back to the manufacturer's blog and find your way around again!!!!

Ok, so you know how to find your way if you get lost....now...here's my gift to one lucky person that leaves a comment on this post.  I will announce the winner on Monday, but it will be Monday evening, because I have to have a job to pay for all this scrappiness that I want to do!!!!!

I used Nikki's Victoria's Street line to make this...the perfect paper for a home decor project, don't you think?  I also included a little Bella Blvd and Jillibean Soup 

Backing paper and green heart strip are Bella Blvd, the rest is Nikki's!
This is all Nikki's except the journaling spot, which is Jillibean Soup!
Back paper and Orange strip are Jillibean Soup, the rest are Nikki's.  And that cord brad...those are Nikki's and AWESOME....I colored it with some Shimmers to get the golden look...it was white!

So, do you want to win it????  You know you do! Just leave me a comment and you will be entered to win!  I will randomly pick someone and post on Monday!!!!  This IS OPEN TO INTERNATIONAL visitors, I would hate to leave anyone out.  But you will have to give me a bit of time to get to the post office to get it to go thru. 

Here is the list of the rest of the Willie B's Doghouse Divas that are giving away gifts they made also!!!  And these are cute, let me tell you!  We have been posting pics back and forth ohhhhing and awwwwing over everyone's goodies they have made!!!
