I have been such a bad blogger lately. The creative juices were basically non existent until yesterday!! I scrapped the day away!! Yay!!! It felt so great to be creating something. I have lots to catch up on. :)
First off, I want to let you know about my sister Susan's blog giveaway! How would you like a set of these to add your own buttons, brads and bling to?
Susan has been making them! She is bringing me a stash next week when she comes on her house hunting trip. If you want to get in on a chance, pop over HERE for the details!
I am sad to say that Aphra announced that she will be closing her kit club, The Paper Poppy. It must be tons of work to run a kit club and with two small children it would be a hard thing to manage. As much as I will miss her amazing kits, I totally understand that family always comes first. Our children are grown before we know it, so it is so important to try to not miss a beat. Aphra is having lots of great sales on to clear out her inventory so if you are looking for a great deal, check out the store.
Here is the LO that I made with the October kit! Me and my favourite little guy, Thomas. My brother, Andrew, took this photo of us. Andrew uses a regular non digital camera and develops his own negatives. He is an amazing photographer. Must have gotten my Dad's talent. :)
I was so happy to get my hands on these Lily Bee papers through the kit. I never see Lily Bee out here. :( I love the muted tones of browns and blues in the "Catching Fall" line.
I used Liz's sketch #88 from The Scrappiest! Here it is.
Lastly, I am proud to announce that tomorrow we make the trip to go and pick up Ladybug!!! I am so excited!!! The adoption went through and I just can't wait to bring her to her new forever home. As of last week she did not know her name, Ladybug, which was given to her in August. If this is still the case, we have decided to change her name to Penny. If she is responding to Ladybug, I will keep this name as not to cause her further confusion. I'll post some photos of my new expanded pack very soon. I also have Mo (Diane's cat) with me for a week while Diane enjoys the sunny shores of Cuba. Luckyyyyyy! Needless to say, I am basically running a zoo over here and loving every minute of it!
Wishing you all a wonderful day! Happy Scrapping!! Jen :)
