Nicole, congratulations! Crafter's Companion will be getting you your prize out shortly!
Here is a layout done with the My Lil Monster collection from Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker. There is a story behind this, as I had emailed Nikki to ask her if I could use this picture for a layout for CHA. I told her I had an idea and it involved the Monster paper. She wrote me back and said sure...that she was going to use the same picture and create a layout about the "monster she had created" when she introduced me to scrapbooking. WELL, that was the SAME idea that I had! LOL We had a good laugh about it. I don't know if she got her's done yet or not, but I did mine!
Supplies: Pattern Paper-Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker (My Lil Monster Collection); Buttons, Brads-Nikki Sivils, Scrapbooker; Punch-Martha Stewart;
Twine-The Twinery Baker's Twine;
Markers-Faber Castell Big Brush Markers; Ink-Memento;
Adhesive-Scotch ATG, Fabri-Tac and Scrapbook Adhesives
Also Used-Cricut Expression, Gypsy, and Elegant Edges cartridge.
Also, if the layout looks somewhat familiar, well, I used the sketch from Sketch Support that I had done a layout for in THIS POST. I loved the way the sketch flowed and this is the FIRST time I have used a sketch a second time in almost the same way....actually it's the first time I have used a sketch a second time period! The layout just worked and at the time I had a ton of stuff to do, so I just went with it.
I have been playing with some other papers other than Nikki papers, but I can't show anything yet....there might be some Echo Park coming up on the blog soon! I haven't had a lot of time to create since getting back from CHA and trying to get caught up, so you are seeing my CHA work right now! And a little Sketch Support projects thrown in here and there!
And there is a little thing I got over the weekend that will cause even more distraction.......

I didn't think I would ever get one (because it is definitely a toy!)....but then Saturday, it just happened! I got the black iPad2 with a black cover...I know boring, but I will probably get a fun color cover later! I have been busy looking thru apps, playing games and just getting the feel of it. I seem to be addicted to Words with Friends! I think I have about 15 games going on right now.
Well, I think I am going to go play on it right now! Have a great night and good day tomorrow!
