Catch Up Time

Well, we are still having computer problems, looks like it may be the hard drive itself! This is the main reason for my absence. I have been taking pics of stuff though, and have been scrapping.
Let's start off with some Scrapbook Challenges shall we! Sketch 153, by Cathy/Pink Cadillac. She did a great job didn't she?!
This is my take on the sketch.
I used Bazzill cs, Sassfras Hog Heaven pp, ribbon scraps, and Thickers.
AMR (All Moments Remembered) is doing a Book Of Me (BOM) challenge series. They aren't really challenges, as there aren't winners, just a theme/assignment each week. The first one, 3 weeks ago, was to list the thing that bring you joy.
I used Bazzill cs, BG Wisteria pp, Crate Paper rubons, MME cs flower, MM flower brad, and Thickers.
Last week's BOM challenge was "Oh To Be....", I chose THIN. I gave Chrispea a couple swimsuit model photos, and some of me. She is very proficient in Photoshop, and this is what she came up with!! Don't I look HOT?! Keep in mind, this is NOT me, just my face, lol!
This is the layout I did for BOM#2.
I used Bazzill cs, BG Eva pp, BG Sugared pp, Prima Flowers, BG Buttons, Kaiser Crafts pearls, and Thickers. Journaling reads.....
Not only would I be beautiful, I'd feel like it! I could run & play, reach my toes, cross my legs, and ride carnival rides. I could squeeze through crowds; and clothes would be cheaper. Oh, to be thin.
I got this National Scrapbook Day ATC from Kay, for a challenge I offered during the NSD crop at AMR.
Being my Stampin Up! Demo, she brought me this little gift! Thanks Kay, I love it!
OH MY GOODNESS, have you seen the new in colors from SU?? They are so gorgeous! Kay also brought me these swatches of the in colors, along with my SU Catalog!!!
And as a hostess gift (she brought me her swaps as well), she made these gorgeous stamped images!!! Some of them are hostess sets, some are brand new, and some are regular ones, but all great! One of them, which is cut off since you can't see it anyway, is an embossed rose, so I can try this technique. I can't wait to try it!
I am cutting this post off, so I have more to share tomorrow! Hopefully our computer will be back up and running soon. That will make things a lot easier in the future!

I love the new "in colors." How SU consultant is currently in "snooze mode." I haven't heard from her in a while.

I mailed that package yesterday...please forgive my lateness...I have been such a summer slacker. My cupcakes and butterflies are both in there though! I was in a hurry (imagine that! LOL) and just put 10 stamps in there for the return envelope. If I need to do anything else with it just let me know.

Hi - I love reading your blog - but the "thin" thing is highly overrated!! Trust me - being thin does not mean that your happy - you may be able to touch your toes -- but -- that is about it!! LOL -- I think your beautiful just the way you are!! BTW - clothes are not cheaper - lol lol -- unless you are a size 2 and shop on the clearance rack!! :)

I did mail my return stamps today for the Fairy Tale Swap-- Yes - I did forget - I have no brain - Have a Great Weekend!!
