1000 posts and a winner/ Tattered Angels..Graphic 45 blog relay

Here we are.... Post 1000!! Perfect timing to announce the winner of the "Family Album" kit from Scrappy Gourmet.

The winner of the Kit giveaway is Elaine

I hope you have fun with the kit!
Huge thanks to Scrappy Gourmet for sponsoring
this giveaway.

Since I was gone last week... and promised to do a number of giveaways this month. I'll announce another giveaway tomorrow. Not sure yet what it will be ... but I'll have it figured out by then. (really.. I promise) lol


Today is the Tattered Angels / Graffic 45 blog relay... so there will be lots of fun things to look at on the Design Teams blogs for both companies.
It's always so fun when great manufactures team up and let the Design Teams work the products together. These two compliment each other perfectly.
Here are the links to the two companies blogs , you will find links to all there Designers blogs there.

Graphic 45 Blog

Here is the layout I created Baby and Bride Collection from Graphic 45, Vintage Pink and Garden Fairy Glimmer Mist, various Glimmer Chips and one of the new (oooh so cool) large screens.

I am LOVING these new BIG screens!

That embossed Chipboard is amazing.. even before it's inked..but after... oooh la la!

I cut a round piece of clear acrylic to put inside this piece , over the G45 image.

Be sure to pop over and check out the blogs to see all the pretties.
Right now the Tattered Angels blog is showing peeks of all the new CHA releases.. and they are stunning!~


I'm not sure "Where" last week went.. because it just flew by. But it's Monday.. and that means it's less than a week before we leave for CHA. Time to get it in gear! It's going to be a busy week... so lets just hope the "creative mojo" is plentiful! ( keep your fingers crossed).
The weather has been incredible here. So unusually cool for July in Nebraska. It feels great to have the house open, and be able to enjoy the fresh air.
I have so much to share about upcoming classes, projects, new products.. I hope I can remember it all this week. Better make a list. lol ( in my life , it's all about
writing it down.. or I'll certainly forget) grr

Okay... tomorrow I'll start the new giveaway.. so check back!
I've missed you guys!

What a beautiful page. I love both of these companies so I will definitely be checking out the other people this week.

Kathy said...

what a pretty page. I wish that I would take the plunge and get me some glimmer mists!!

DeniseLynn said...

Oh so pretty! We've had such a cool July too and I for one totally enjoy it - especially since fall is my favorite season. I suppose though that the 60's are really a bit of an extreme, but things are supposed to warm up a bit. sunny and 70 would be perftect for me *grin* I'm still sipping sun tea and loving it even if some of my friends think I'm crazy for wanting the cooler, less humid days.

Darlene said...

Pretty, pretty...missed the blog last week. It sounds like you had a "good" week and, now, you are back at work. So glad that you share your inspirational work.

What a great way to start of a new week!! Already this week is infinitely better than my last week (which sucked). Thank you soooo very much Vicki and Scrappy Gourmet!

welcome back to the land of blog-missed ya, but you have such great music on your blog that I have been listening while I play with ink! Love the use of acrylic on the handheld mirror chip-thanks for the idea~L

You should do a glimmer mist class at the store. I want to take it as I have not even played with the chips and screens yet. :)
