Time is running out but I did find time to make a few projects. I made a couple layouts and a couple of tags and a card for my Pine cone Press Book Club. I can cross that off my list finally. We also had a special project to do. We were to make a fairy jar. I could not get mine to photograph well but here she is... She is a winter fairy. Also here are some pictures of me and my hubby on our way out before his Christmas party.

Things have been so crazy lately I have not had a chance to even chat on the boards. I am so bummed I miss all the action. With all the hustle and bustle of Christmas time I have made myself scarce. I hope things settle down after the New Year. Speaking of the New Year I am going to be very cranky. Gregg and I are quiting smoking. (Yikes) but the way I look at it is more money to spend on scrapping stuff. Any who here is some of the current projects I have done and will post some more in a bit.

the frustration level is high another contest or 2 have come and gone and I was not chosen again. Why do I continue to put my self through all the torture of the pain of doing these? I guess hoping that one day my work will get noticed. I look at the people who do get chosen and think why? I know my work needs much improvement and there are far more people out there better than me, but the ones who get chosen their work looks like a pile of shit to me. Oh well, I must like rejection and being hurt and upset because I keep coming back back for more. Here is a few pictures from the 2 contest I did win from http://www.scrap-diner.com/ and http://gettinsketchy.blogspot.com/

I went to scrap with my friend Lori today and got nothing done. I had my wonderful son with and man he was a distraction. So I got to work at home and got some done. This layout I did for a sketch contest at http://www.creativeheartsstudio.com/ had fun doing this sketch.

Gregg has been gone. He went to Talladega for the race and I decided to do some shopping for some new scrapping stuff to help me get motivated. I spent some time scrapping in between my lovely daughters drama. Here are some of my projects: It has been awhile since I have done a layout with the twins on it. Usually it is very difficult for me to do. I miss them very much. Can't wait for them to move back home.
OK I will start with the good news first. I won several contest or challenges. The first one I one was at http://gettinsketchy.blogspot.com/ for my layout of my son. I won a kit package from http://www.mosh-posh.com/ I was very excited. I will post a picture when I receive that. I also won 2 contest at http://www.scrap-diner.com/ not sure what all I am receiving yet. I know some of it is My Minds Eye. Every month they have a manufacturer spotlight contest and for the month of September it was MME. I had posted the most layouts using MME products. This month it is Scenic Route. The other contest was an ad inspiration contest. Every Friday they have a Viva La Friday challenge and I won one of the Friday's challenges. Now with the bad news. I didn't get picked for any online publishing's from Scrap street and the Untamed Scrapper closed shop. Anyway here are a few of the layouts I did for these contest.
