More RAKs

I have had another lucky couple of weeks, as far as RAKs go! But first, you gotta see Rob!! Get used to it, I plan on sharing one with each post, lol! Sorry, I can't help it! :)
This makes me want to get into the Christmas Spirit!!
I got this birthday card a couple weeks ago from Julie, but not because it was my birthday, but just because she saw it and thought of me!! I LOVE it!! The blue end sticking off to the right side, is a detachable bookmark-which I intend on using next time I read the Twilight series!
I got these ribbons from Cindy, as a swap RAK.
This one is from Scrappy Girl, and was a prize from a challenge from the SSS November crop.
From Grammy-b at SSS, another swap RAK.
OH, and Julie sent me this with some swaps, again, just because she thought of me! They were yummy too!! I just want to let you all know, she is a Jacob fan, so buying this probably made her head spin, lol!!
I joined up in a Secret Santa swap at SSS, and one of them is a handmade swap, designed to help out during these tough financial times. I will be receiving 5 little handmade gifts in this swap.
This first one is from Jana, I really like them! PLUS, they are all decorated with Stickles!!
That is all for now, I have more projects I need to get done, so now that my computer is back up and running, hopefully I can get some stuff done!

Some Recent Layouts

To start with, here is some more Rob Pattinson goodness!!!
I am a bit behind on some of these, with the computer problems I have been having, and just plain spacing out, I missed a week or two of posting. But, here they are, in all their glory!
My take. I used October Afternoon Road Map pp, Bazzill cs, Cosmo Cricket The Boyfriend pp, misc ribbon, and Thickers. Oh, and my fairly new Tiny Attacher!
Sketch 175-This week's sketch!
For mine, I used Sassafras Bungle Jungle pp, die cuts, Bazzill cs, rhinestones, and Thickers.
If you have considered joining up at Scrapbook Challenges, I encourage you to come on by. It is no longer on MySpace, so those of you who avoided it because of that [J.I. ;)] there is no excuse! It is so much easier to navigate, and posting is less hassle. We even have our own gallery, so no more 3rd party posting!!
Here is another BZB Designs layout I did, this week's release!! This page uses a few kits, but all coordinate! The paper is Going Gingham, the cookies are Cookies 4 Santa, the letters are Cookie Cutter, then there is the matching cardstock-Take Stock Dec Color Play. The entire set would normally cost $8, but are half price right now, so it would only cost you $4. If you are into digi, I highly recommend check out Brynn's kits. She has them for sale at Elemental Scraps.
I did this one last month for the SSS Nov crop. Unfortunately, I didn't save the info for what the kit is, or who it is by-I do know it was a freebie.
This is for a Round Robin game we played on Scrapbook Challenges. This is my scraplift of the original layout, by Chrispea, which you can see here.
I used Bazzill cs, Graphic 45 pp, 7 gypsies stamp, button, BG rubons, wooden letters from Dollar Tree, Jenni Bowlin Bingo Card, and a die cut from Julie.
That's all the layouts I have done for now! Thanks for checking in friends!!

Been Doing Some Digi

Yes, you saw that right, I have been doing some digi layouts. I have dabbled in it for a while, but when I was asked to be on Brynn's Creative Team for BZB Designs at Elemental Scraps, I couldn't turn it down!
Before I get to those, I did this one for Twilight Tuesday, #56, New Moon Experience. I didn't take any pictures when I saw the movie (3 times), and didn't save my tickets, so I just used some photos for/from the movie. I absolutely loved it, and want to see it again and again! I know Edward has some "issues", but I don't care, I am obessed and would be over the moon for him too if I were Bella! LOL *SIGH*
. So, back to BZB Designs. I have been having a blast using her kits, they are really good!!
This one uses Maddie's Garden Overgrown, matching Take Stock cardstock and Garden Girl Alphas.
This one uses Special Edition, Read All About It, matching Take Stock cardstock, and Extra Extra Alphas.
This is also my layout for SSS's Dec 1 Scraplift Challenge.
This was also for the Photo Corner Challenge at Scrapbook Challenges.
There are no elements with this paper, but as you can see, you can make your own with the paper! This one was done for no other reason than to show off ROB!!
This one uses Smell My Feet.
This is also for SSS's Dec 1 Product Challenge.
This one uses U Plus Me.
This one uses Capture The Everyday.
This one uses It's My Party.
That is all for today. I am not home all weekend, including Monday, so I will have more to share when I get home to my own computer where I have more RAKs and some layouts to share (I think). Tomorrow will be another Scrapbook Challenges Sketch, technique challenge, and another BZB Designs release. See you then!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving!!
I saw this, and just HAD to share it!! Seriously!!
I got 9 layouts done yesterday, can you believe it? I can't! I am definitely feeling the scrappy bug again, even upset I don't have any more projects to work on. I will find something though, never fear! Unfortunately, I can only share 4 of them for now, the rest are sketches that' haven't been released yet-so will you just have to wait! ;)
Speaking of sketches, I had totally forgot to inform you all the Scrapbook Challenges has moved from MySpace in Ning. We are hoping with the move, that more people will join up, I know some of you had already mentioned that preference (Jingle, lol). Find our new home here...
SC Challenge, Scraplift Rowee. I also combined this with an SSS font/title challenge, using the butterfly as a letter.
Wait, did I tell you that the AMR ladies switched over to a different board, where we have full control? Scrap Sisters Studio! Just as good as AMR, but without the drama of having an unreliable mb! Come check us out!
Back to the layout...I used BG Lime Rickey pp, Cricut-cut butterfly from wunderkrafts, GSD sticker letters, buttons, and brads.
SC Fold a Corner Challenge.
I used Cosmo Cricket Dutch Girl pp/die cuts, MM letter stickers, stick pin, ribbon, Prima flower, Tim Holtz Tiny Attacher, Martha Stewart border punch, and Cosmo Cricket chipboard.
SC Family Tradition Challenge.
I used BG Mistletoe & Pear pp, Paper Studio brad, and MM Flower Patch letter stickers.
SC Movie Title Challenge.
I used Bazzill cs, AC Amplified pp, ribbon, ribbon slider, Prima flower, buttons, and BG White Chocolate chipboard letters.
And if that wasn't enough for you, here is more ROB!! Growl!!!! LOL
As much as I am thankful for the eye candy that is Rob/Edward, I am thankful for all my loyal readers, especially during my absence. You guys are the best!!! You are the reason I blog!!

A Heap of Scrappy Goodness

Yeah, so Rob Pattinson isn't scrappy, but he sure is nice to look at, don't ya think?
Align CenterOver the last month, I have gotten quite a bit of goodies in the mail! I just wanted to share it all with you, so here is all in, in no particular order...
Got this from Gay, just because!
This is from Grammy-b, as a swap RAK!
From Gay again, swap RAK. and no, the crackers weren't included, lol!
A prize from Gloria from a challenge.
Swap RAK from Scrappin{jewlz}, cute ribbons! There was another, which I found on the floor after taking the photo.
From Kelli. She bought this Edward stamp from The Greeting Farm, and thought of me! She made a card with one image, and sent me 7 more for me to use!! She even put Stickles all over his face and arms so they sparkle! How totally cool!!
Got these from Lisa/LBOregon.
Scrappy Girl sent these as a swap RAK.
She sent this too!
I got this a while ago, but don't know who it is from, it was postmarked in GA! If it was you, I would love to know so I can thank you!
That is it for now. I will try to get something done in the next few days, and share as soon as I have something!! I am trying very hard to keep up with the scrappiness, I want it to become part of my life again. My life has become a balancing act...Fan Fiction (Twilight) and scrapbooking. Toodles!

Monday, November 23, 2009


Yeah, I am back. For now anyway, I haven't been feeling very scrappy lately. No excuses here,
just nothing scrappy.
This is what I have up to.....Rob Pattinson (aka Edward Cullen) and Twilight/New Moon. I have also been doing LOTS of reading online.
Seriously, how can you resist this????
Okay, enough of that, onto the stuff you came here to see, scrappy stuff!!
This was a hottie challenge I offered a couple weeks ago at the Scrap Sisters Studio online crop.
Guess who I did my Hottie challenge about????
I used Bazzill cs, BG Eva pp, Thickers, MM journal sheet, and some crocheted flowers made by LBOregon!
A challenge for the same crop, use tape.
I used Bazzill Bling cs, BG Junebug pp, GSD letters, buttons, stamped die cut from Jewlz, and masking tape.
Scrappy's Fast Food Challenge, I used a Crystal Light container, Cosmo Cricket Early Bird pp, and BG Blush letters.
I made this over a month ago, for a challenge on Scrapbook Challenges, making a border.
I used Bazzill cs, BG Figgy Pudding pp and letter stickers, lots of hole punches, and Creative Imaginations stickers. The poinsettia is just a bunch of teardrop shaped pieces of cardstock.
I made this ATC for a fishing swap at Split Coast.
I used Cosmo Cricket Snorkel pp, fishing lures, fishing leads, fishing swivels, Studio G stamps, Nestabilities, CB Tiny Bubbles embossing folder, and Kaiser Crafts rhinestones.
I am sorry it has been so long. Do you guys mind if I post more Edward Cullen/Rob Pattinson photos??? Let me know!
