A 14 hour crop at Custom Crops

Lucky me! I met up with a fellow Sparker at Custom Crops for a 14 hour crop on Saturday. I don't think I got a lot done other than laugh alot and enjoy our time visiting! LOL! Not really, but I wasn't as productive as I could have been! Only 4 completed pages, a half page, and I started a 6x6 book for my son.

I loved going to Custom Crops and being able to use all the tools that they have, and we all know they have a lot of them! If the store sells it, we could try it! I had some help w/ the Zutter for the 6x6 book, but what a cool tool that is....it's going on my wish list!

Here's my favorite LO from the day! I used the Copic Glitter pens on it, which makes it's all shiny and eye-catching, just like that tatoo.

It was a great day! Meeting Sherrie, recruiting Stephanie, and cropping and shopping at Custom Crops...for 14 straight hours! Did I mention there were margaritas.....

Spring Shape Swap

Here's a couple of LO's that I did using the shapes from the Spring Shape Swap. I love all the shapes and embellishments that everyone sent in, I can't wait to use more of them! Hugs to all who participated, everyone did an awesome job!

Easter morning at our house!

How could I pass up a picture of this bright and beautiful rainbow that came our way in late March?!!

Stamp to Lose Challenge April 12-18

This week's challenges were:
1. Use the Stamping Off technique to create a card or layout.
2. Tax Day is this week... Stamp something that has to do with money! This can be interpreted just about any way you like, so have fun with it!
3. Stamp anything- anything at all...

I can't take full credit for this as I saw a similar card using the Citrus SU stamp set with 3 different colors on someone's blog, but can't remember which blog it was...my apologies go out to the originator! Not only did I scraplift the idea, I also borrowed the SU set from Amy, so I'm sending a big shout out to her for letting me use it!

I wanted to borrow the citrus stamp to make a set of twinchies for a swap I'm in and decided I could use a couple of those twinchies for the challenge this week. Yep, that's right....another twofer for me! I did the stamping off technique on the background paper and love the way it turned out.

Thanks for the great challenge this week girls, I hope you keep it up!
