Another challenge is complete!! I finished it last night, but was too tired to get the post up. This is for Our Daily Bread. I don't own any of their stamps yet, but I really need to get some. Their verses would be great on project life cards or any scrapbook page. So in this challege I had to use the letters in the word LOVE to create my project. In the words of one of my favorite little boys HERE GOES NOTHIN'!!

Overlay was from my stash. I have no clue where I got it. I think it was free at a crop or something from years ago. Glad I finally found a use for it.
The weekend has come to an end, but I got a few pages done while I was around the house on Saturday which was nice. Here they are!!
Mom and I go to ICE at the Gaylord every year on my birthday. It's just the coolest thing to see all the things they can make out of ice. The Theme this year was the Night Before Christmas. We loved it as always.
So it's snowing here on the East Coast and I got a snow day!!! Love when that happens! I managed to unpack from a retreat that I was at last weekend and I even got a page done!!! Here's my latest work of art!! So thankful for Ipad camera's when my regular camera is out of commission. It's really not, but I need a new camera card and with the snow that wasn't an option, maybe tomorrow.
So I've actually done quite a few pages since Christmas, but since some of them were for a gift I coulnd't post. Not great pictures just a few I snapped with my cell phone. So I helped my cousin with an album for her fiance who is just finishing up college and is a football player. She did a scrapbook of all 5 years that he played. Here are a few pages that I did for her. It was so much fun helping her out and she even learned to like scrapbooking.
We did one of my God Baby since she was born while her Dad was finishing college too. That Stampin' Up Owl Punch is my new favorite thing!!!
I also did a quick page over the weekend of a Christmas party that I was at with my family. We love our crazy selves!!!
Well, I have gotten a little organization in over Christmas. I had to make room for my new Ebosser is really what got me movtivated. So I have a few new addtions to my scrapbook room an I had to share. First up my new 12" Revolving Four Tray Bin from Harbor Freight. Love it!!! It holds so much stuff and it's all super easy to get too!!! Liquid and dry adhesives, stickles, sprays, silhouette pens, washi tape, you name it, it's up there!
Next I picked up the Creative Options Grab N Go Medium Rack System. I found it at Micheal's half off so it was a great deal. The top has all of my Close to my heart ink pads an a few markers. The first drawer has a few buttons and googly eyes, and all of my Megan Elizabeth mini inks. The second drawer has my sponge daubers, tear drop momento inks and Zig Mellenium Pens. The last drawer has my Copic Spica markers, gel pens and Wink of Stella Glitter pens. I love it because it really is grab 'n go for a crop. My plan for this year is to get all of my supplies to a point that I can pack and unpack more easily.
A quick addition to the Copic coloring book that I made yesterday...I added a file folder to the back to make a pocket for the copic color chart! Now the whole books doesn't have to go to the store when buying new markers. I also added a piece is transparency film that can be taken out and placed behind the page that's being colored so there are no bleeding issues. I snapped a quick pic with my phone. It turned out great so I had to share. Enjoy!
I finally finished my Copic coloring book. I have been working on this for a while. I got the idea from Michelle at my favorite scrapbook store, Scrapdoodles. The book is a half piece of letter size paper. I used Copic Express It paper for all of the pages. The cover is chipboard. I sprayed it with Dylusions Spray Mists in various colors on the inside and out. The title is cut using a font on the Creative Memories Vacation cartridge. I used a glitter black paper for the title. The binding wire is a purple metallic 1 inch Cinch wire. I used my Cinch machine to bind it together. Super easy book and now I can practice coloring anywhere!!
I talk about my favorite scrapbook store all of the time!! I had to share on my blog as well as my Facebook page all the fun I had there on Saturday. So twice a year (spring and fall) Scrapdoodles in Fredericksburg, VA does a consignment sale. It's great you; you drop your stuff off, they sell it, and you get a gift card for what you sold, less their consignment fee. Needless to say I came home on Saturday with stuff ready to sell next spring AND $365 in scrapbook goodies thanks to the great sales I had this fall! I'm so so over joyed. It took me 15 minutes to get used to the idea that I could pretty much get anything I wanted, but after that it was game on!!!! So I couldn't be happier with my new goodies and I can't wait for the next consignment sale no matter how great my sells are.
Also over the weekend I found the best little store for dies and rubber stamps. Gotta love anything made in America right!!! So there is a great store in Williamsburg called Impression Obsession. They open their warehouse once a year for a huge warehouse sale!!! I was there this past Saturday when they opened and got quite a few goodies. They had great deals on stamps, dies, acrylic blocks, ink pads, everything!!! The ladies are also super nice too!!! So of course I had to share a picture of my goodies!!!
