In The Groove

I feel like I am back into the groove of things! I got some challenges done, I got around to some blog awards I have forgotten about, and a couple blog games. Let's get right to it, shall we?!
This is the other challenge from Scrapbook Challenges that I hadn't gotten done yet on my last post, Love Letters. The challenge was to do a layout with a love letter, with your journaling being in letter form. I am such a scrap dork, that I had to write a love letter to Stickles and Basic Grey, my 2 obsessions, lol!!
I used Basic Grey's Two Scoops printed paper, stickers and letters; and Stickles-Yellow, Cotton Candy, and Crystal.
This one is for The Cuttlebug Spot. The challenge was to do a white card with a black sentiment. I used Bazzill cs, CB embossing folder Traffic Jam, the CB dies and folder I got with the CB-Celebration Stamps, Inkadinkado Stamp for the sentiment, and some ribbon.
This is for Method Playground, Hand stitch with embroidery floss. I used Basic Grey Euphoria pp and sticker letters, embroidery floss (of course), and misc flowers and buttons.
This is for a progressive challenge at All Moments Remembered. We were given the following instructions over the last week or two....
1) Pick a 12 x 12 sheet of Patterned
2) 8.5 x 11 piece of ledger paper (you can use neutral cardstock) -Your journaling will be on this sheet somewhere3) pp that coordinates with your 12 x 12 - 8in wide by 6 or 7 in long4) add two more sheets pp - 3in wide by 6 in tall each - that have text on it - Your picture will go on top of these two.-distress and ink edges of photo.5) add a file tab6) 5 small identical rubons or a stamp used 5 times7) 1 tiny piece of paper that could be a tag or a ticket, add the date (could be any date) 1 in by 2 in wide8) add a rubon flourish (or a stamped one) to #29) add 3 different colors of ribbon 8.5 in long10) add 3 buttons, 2 different types/colors
11) add a charm
12) add 2 -8.5 in x 1/2 in strips of decorative edge, but you can use a paper edge 13) add your title - use two different colors and two different fonts. Use a set of Parenthesis.14) okay that's it. You may adhere everything. One last tip - ***everything must be on the 8.5 x 11 sheet. The only thing touching the #1 should be your file tab. You must journal.***
I used Sassafras Lass for all my printed paper, lined paper is Scenic Route, Newspaper looking paper is October Afternoon pp, American Crafts Thickers, Jenni Bowlin letter stickers, Target Dollar Spot ribbon and SEI ribbon, cs is Bazzill, rubon is Crate Paper, Stamps are Sassafras Lass, buttons and star are miscellaneous.

Here is a close up of it, with the descriptions of where each item is.
Kay and Jingle shared some random photos yesterday, so I thought I would do the same, just for fun!
This is my tin of embellishments I still have to put away.
My Stampin' Up catalog and my received Christmas Cards.
The movies we currently have out from the library.
I am behind on some blog awards I have received, sorry everyone!
This first one I got from Scrappy Girl a couple months ago, and again yesterday from Melegs!
I got this one from Scrappy Girl a couple months ago too!
A little blog to catch up on too...
This first one is from Scrappin{jewlz}. It is the list 7 random things about you one. I think this is the 4th time I have gotten it, so I will try to come up with 7 new ones, lol!
1. I am afraid of spiders, like irrationally afraid! If I kill one, I expect his family to take out revenge on me, or it will come back to life and get me. I won't close my eyes in the shower, and I won't even let me cats chase them. I know none of this will really happen, but those thoughts do cross my mind.
2. I have always had an obsession with pens and office supplies. Maybe that is why scrapbooking appeals to me so much, lol!
3. I am addicted to Diet Coke.
4. I love Colin Firth!
5. I once got my driver's license suspended for too many tickets. It was suspended between midnight and 5 am, except for driving too/from work.
6. I met my husband online.
7. I was voted most likely to become a tele-evangelist my senior year in high school!
As for all these awards and tags, I am gonna have to pass on them for now, I have already nominated everyone I know and couldn't possibly find anyone else, lol! If you want to play, feel free and go for it, consider yourself tagged.
Oh yeah, for all those of you who wished me to have fun on Monday night, I wish I would have, we had to cancel it for snow. We will do it again next week. As for the snow, we still have it which is odd for us, and we are supposed to be getting more today. Below freezing temps all week, our road is still ice covered, I am starting to get cabin fever, lol! Don't get me wrong, I do love it!!

I received your card in the mail pretty. Thank was a very nice surprise. Manga Dork even commented on how nice it was!

We are not sending Christmas cards due to the fact that I kept trying for a pic of the kids and it didn't happen. I have none made and it is too late to start filling them out now! LOL! I feel so guilty...I think this is the first year since I have been married that I have not sent them. Bad Scrappy! I think I will make it up with Valentine's Day!
