A giveaway.. a winner and TECC51

The winner of the "Clearly Cards" book giveaway is Deb Neerman
( just email me your address.. and I'll get that in the mail to you) vickichrisman@hotmail.com


So that means the giveaway for the "Clearly Classy" Albums starts today! So all you have to do is leave a message in this post and I'll put your name in for this drawing. One little change.. instead of drawing for this winner like I mentioned earlier.. I will draw on Thursday. Simply because Friday will be a busy day ... and the day I leave for CA.


Fridays seem to be rolling around pretty darn fast these days.. wow. Crazy to think it will be time to leave for CHA only a week from today.
Friday means it's Taylors Challenge Day. woo hoo

This card was made with an image from Crafty Secrets "Childhood" Image and Journal book.
***Be sure to check out the Heartwarming Vintage blog to see whats new for CHA from Crafty Secrets.

Taylors Sketch
This week cupcake sampler is Jenn Diercks
Hope you pop over and check out what she created this week, along with the rest of the girls.

***************************************************************
Kit's Kit's Kit's .... that's whats going on here. The goodies for the CHA class have arrived.. so now it's sorting, cutting , and bagging time. lol
Look , I even got Dan in on it. He did all the (paper) cutting. yes! So thankful for the AccuCut Machine!! Boy does it make things easier!!! Cant imagine cutting 50's of each of the pieces BY HAND.

The Class will be a "Girlfriends" theme... Crafty Secrets Heartwarming Vintage papers, cotton, images, stickers, chipboard, and stamps of course.
Other sponsors ..... Creative Impressions, Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L, and WorldWin Cardstock and Tattered Angels.

Here's just a couple of the things we'll make in the class. We'll also be making a chipboard Calendar hanging and another card.
* boy.. you can really see the "Iridescent Pearl" Glimmer Mist on these.
Below, is one the the things that was pubbed recently with all Crafty Secrets Products. I got it back with that box of goodies I was telling you about the other day. This is in the new Scrapbook Trends "Baby" Book.

Off to get my hair colored. (some things just HAVE to be done) lol.. this is one of them.

Monday.. .I'll be sharing NEW FANCY PANTS!!! Cant wait to show you!
