Wow....the year is almost gone...

First of all, I would like to thank Leah Farquharson for my blog makeover!!!!!  How do you like it??  I didn't expect it to be done so quickly and she just took off with it....I am LOVIN' the siggy pic she made for me!!!

On to crafty things....well, a lot of stuff I can't show.  You all know CHA is right around the corner, and I have all the new Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker papers in my hands and I am trying to come up with some good things for them!!!  I am doing some altered projects for the booth, so I am busy trying to come up with themes, things, etc. 

Here is a layout that was up over on Nikki's blog Saturday....you know you have to scrap that first trip to Krispy Kreme!!!
 SuppliesNikki Sivils, Scrapbooker Sugar Cookie Collection, American Crafts Thickers
The Twinery Bakers Twine, Martha Stewart Border Punch, Scotch Adhesive

Here's a close up of that twine...I just took two colors and wrapped them 
around my paper and then tied a bow!!  I think it makes a nice little accent on the page
I am off here to try to go to sleep...I had another darn headache (really think this is hormone related!) and took a nap on the couch from 2-5pm....oppsie.....that makes it hard to go to sleep at night!!!

Scrapbook Generation Publishing Creative Team...and a layout!!

Wow...I didn't realize it has been almost a week since I updated.  My vacation time flew by...and I basically got nothing accomplished!  Yeah...my vacations are usually like that.  I did sleep a lot...LOL.  

On Wednesday, Allison Davis, announced the Scrapbook Generation Publishing Creative Team....and I was on it!!  So excited.  Allison has been doing Sketch Week on her blog for awhile now, but this is a brand new site and gig!  The site will open in Jan. 2011.  There will be lots of sketchy goodness for those that love sketches.  You can read the announcement and see the rest of the team HERE.

Speaking of sketches...here is a two page layout that was done with one of Allison's sketches from November.  We know...since I have said it before on here....I have trouble with two page layouts!  So, a sketch is the way to go for me!  If you click on the layout, you will be able to see it better!

  Supplies:  Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker Happy Holly Days Collection; Cute as a Button buttons;
The Twinery Bakers Twine, American Crafts Thickers,
Scotch ATG, Martha Stewart Punch Around the Page Set

And twine....well the twine from The Twinery is AWESOME....and I used it to embellish this layout!!!!  Here is a close up:
I love ribbons, twine, jute, etc and I thought the Maraschino color from The Twinery made some cute bows and accents for the tree cut outs!  Don't forget, you can always dress up cut outs, die cuts, etc. to give them a little something extra!

Ok, I am off here for tonight...I actually did get another layout done today...it's only taken me 4 days to complete it.....the mojo is moving slowly.....

Have a Scrappy Kinda Day!!~~Katrina
