I'm still in Florida at CHA.. could me a chance to do one of Taylors Sketches.. so because I'm a nut.. I was doing it at midnight the night before I left. lol
When I took this photo in the AM is was barely light out...lol.. but no time.. gotta head to the airport. ( just call me suzy-last minute) oh brother
Anyway.. here's Taylor sketch this week. Enjoy!

I've been taking photos.. so as soon as I have a little more time.. I'll try to upload some.
Off to the show!
I'm having a hard time giving up working with this Halloween line.. so.. just a bit more.. and you can go back to summertime, okay? lol
I have had these Martha Stewart Test Tubes I got on sale at Micheal's a year or so ago.. so I thought this was a good time to do something with them.
I used the rubons directly on some of them.
I had to have something to carry them in so... I went digging around in my "to alter" box.
The only problem I had here was finding "Halloween Candy" in July. lol
Just did the best I could. I think the lady at the register thought I had quite a sweet tooth. oh.. brother.

I offset my stamp from the screen print just slightly ..because I love that look .. but you can easily place it right on top of your misted butterfly image. You can use the negative or the positive of the misted butterfly.. either effect is gorgeous.
Here it is closer.
The “In flight” is also a part of this stamp .. as well as the swirls behind the butterfly. I love that they are able to be used separatly. I used the swirls around the edges of my saying also.
Stamped with a lighter color , they would easily make beautiful background paper. ( See how my mind wanders?) lol
Enjoy the day friends!!

And .. as soon as I saw it .. I knew what photos I wanted to use on the first layout. Yay!
I used the circles and dashes from the rubons to create a speedometer.
There are lots more great samples on the Fancy Pants Blog.. so check em out if you get a chance.

Yesterday .. we started out the morning watching Jarad do a climb to replace an antenna. He'd been looking forward to this for some time. ( I just to my best to be calm) eeek
Below..Him getting his safety harness on. I should have posted a photo of all the guys.. there were a number of the "seasoned" ham radio guys there also... but Jarad and one of the other younger guys were the ones who climbed.
See that little speck at the top? Yep.. Jarad.
He was up there for over 6 hours getting the new antenna in place.
And then..Safely returned to the ground.
\ We weren't there the entire time. We watched him go up..stayed a while and then left to meet Jan and Keith at the cabin. We had invited them out to grill and spend the afternoon. We returned later with them to watch him come down when he was finished.
On the way to the cabin.. we saw this weird thing walking down the road in front of the car. We had been seeing pheasants so I just assumed that was what it was.
( again... look for speck) lol
Wrong! A peacock? weird... we're talking Nebraska here people. I'm assuming he belonged to the nearby farm??
This is a simple little album I decorated with Crafty Secrets Halloween stickers . The album is from Melissa Frances.. the papers used are Crafty Secrets and the tiny black pom pom trim is from Fancy Pants. ( Spritzed with Iridescent Gold Glimmer Mist over all.. and the inside pages with Harvest Orange)
I still have the journaling strips to add so....
I left spaces for that
All of these images and letters are from only 1 sheet of Halloween images. ( there are alot on one sheet). You can see them HERE

Of course there is rub ons.. buttons, ribbons ect.. to match all the new lines.
Aren't these little animals cute?
Here's the card. ( I had to put that little bird on the giraffes back.. I just HAD too. )lol
Sweet momma at work in her kitchen.
After we cleaned up our mess.. I headed for home.. an watched this coming at me all the way. It was freaking me out. The sky was just creepy! You can click to see it larger. It rained on me so hard before I finally got home.. I could hardly see. I was just praying ... PLEASE don't hail on my car! Just a few pieces of hail and it stopped. Whew!
Seriously ..the sky was SO weird.. I saw people pulling over, ( before it started raining) video taping it. Me.. well, just snapping pics with my camera. lol
Just glad it wasnt as bad as it looked.
I have posts schedualed while I'm gone.. but I'm hoping to be able to add to those posts while I'm gone.. with my laptop..( we'll see.. it will all depend on time .. and how tired I am. lol)

Congrats Linda.. I hope you like it. Please send you addy.. so I can get to mailed out to you. ( probably after CHA okay?) I leave Sunday.. so not sure I'll hear back from you in time to get to the post office before I leave.

Today is Taylors Challenge day... so here's my card and Miss Taylors fun sketch
*This weeks featured sampler is Alex Maldonado
I'm finishing up CHA projects today and calling it good. Tomorrow we are going to go watch Jarad do a climb.. and then my sis and brother-in-law are coming out to the cabin to grill and spend the afternoon.I havent even been out there to see the new patio doors in and finished up. ( Thanks to Dan , Jarad and Kate.. working on them , while I was off trying to kill myself canoeing last week. ) lol
Spending the afternoon at the cabin with them will be a nice way to wrap things up .. so that I can head out Sunday morning for the airport.
I'm working on scheduling posts here on the blog for next week when I'm gone.. so if all goes well.. and I do it right... you might have some projects using new goodies to look at.
If you don't see anything ... don't think I fell off the earth.. or that anything is wrong.. it just means .. I'm not bright enough to get it all scheduled right. lol... (just covering myself on that one) lol
Okay.. be good. See you tomorrow kids.

Sharing another layout done with new Tattered Angels layout with you.
Just wait until you see the new BIG Screens. I used one behind the photo on this layout. You can see that much of the actual design here .. just the edges but you can see just how big it really is. Perfect for 12x12's. And the designs are gorgeous.
You be seeing alot more of this screen.. and the other large screen. I'll share soon. But you can see peeks of all the new goodies on the TA blog HERE.
Below is one of the new Chip Tiles... used as a journaling piece. The are embossed with the coolest designs. Rubbing an ink pad over them .. just totally brings out the design.
All the pieces on this layout... paper and all..... all started out WHITE only. Glimmer mist did the rest.
Yesterday I was out and about getting things done... and ran into some beautiful things I just had to share with you.
Oh.. and something else beautiful... Miss Ruthie
She as "spunk".
