Amazing Young Man Scrapbook Designer & A Giveaway!

Hello everyone! Sorry I haven't been posting in awhile, but I've been super busy! 1 - Looking for a new job and 2 - Trying to create Christmas presents for my don't worry, there will be some scrappiness going on in my house which I will post when I'm done! Right now I'm playing with some Graphic 45 Christmas Past paper and 2 chipboard albums bought in the $1 bin at Michaels (a Christmas Tree and an Ornament!)

Anyways, I wanted to let you guys know about this FABULOUS designer I found on YouTube about a month or so ago. His name is Drew (YT name is Cardofmyeye) and he does some outstanding work; making cards and mini albums! When I first saw one of his videos, I was like "man he sounds so YOUNG!"....turns out he is! He is only 15 and has only been scrapping for a year!! You have got to stop by his blog and check him out. Here is the link to ScrappyHappiness. Go NOW and check him out! He is gonna be the next Tim Holtz for sure (who he was fortunate enough to meet and take classes from a little bit ago!!).

And the giveaway I mentioned....he is giving away a Cricut cartridge because he just reached 1000 subbies on his YouTube channel! All you need to do is leave him a comment on his blog to enter to win. It would be nice if you subbed his channel and became a follower of his blog as well! There are also 2 other ways to be entered as well, so be sure to read his blog!

Ok, that's it for now! Thanks for stopping by. Hope everyone has a Terrific Turkey Day!

What's happening?!

Again, with being the bad blogger...LOL!! I've been a little preoccuppied with trying to get some Christmas presents done, that I've neglected my blog.

I was able to get a few projects done for If The Shoe Fits blog. You can check them out here.

I did this page of my oldest daughter's Freshman year in High School. The "Grizzlies" paper I purchased from my LSS and it's a custom made paper they had made for all the local schools in their school colors and mascots.
And this one I did for The Shoe's Holiday themed challenge. These are of my family at Christmas in 2001 while we were stationed on MCB Camp Pendleton, CA. Thankfully, all my husband's family is in that area and we were able to spend it with them.

Thanks for stopping by! Head on over to The Shoe and see what this weeks challenge is! I will hopefully be getting some scrapping done this weekend and will be able to post pics soon!

Have Stress?? Must Distress!!

I have been a bad blogger the last 2 weeks...LOL!!! Too many things going on all at once, I guess! I have been trying to come up with some ideas for Christmas presents for the extended family, ones that I don't have to spend a lot of money on and ones that will be unique to the person getting it! I've decided to do some mini-albums for the nieces and nephews and a 8x8 calendar for the MIL/FIL. The calendar was coming along ok, until I ran out of ink in my printer!! I don't have the extra cash right now to buy the color cartridges, but hopefully in the next month I can get it ordered!

Anywhoo....This weeks challenge over at The Shoe was to Distress!! It can be inking, tearing, etc....whatever you do to distress!! I've done my "Cherish" page using all CTMH products and inking my colonial white paper with brown ink. Not my best work, but it's still cute!!

So, stop on by The Shoe and enter your project. No back-linking please, only new projects.

This project I did for the week before over at The Shoe. It was to use orange in your project. I LOVED how this one turned out. Unfortunately, the pic I took here isn't the best, but the photo in the LO was of my 2 daughters, my Uncle and my Aunt riding the Griffon at Busch Gardens. It was my Aunt's first time riding it and the look on her face is so totally hysterical!! I just love it!!

Around We Go!

Here lately I've been getting a lot scrapped, you just haven't seen most of it yet (they are for challenges that haven't posted just yet!!) But I have the day off today and have been "lurking" on a website called ScrapyLand. Their gal Susan is just the funniest lady and I just LOVE her Starting Blox! Plus they have a store that I've been dying to shop at, just don't have the luxury of any extra scrapping money right now...LOL!! If you are into QuicKutz, you have to check them out!!

So today, I decided to do her current one, Starting Blox #17 and I knew I had the perfect pics to do! This is my oldest daughter and her grandma riding the ferris wheel at Knotts Berry Farm last year. I fussy cut a couple of images (the "send 25 cents and the red 2 card) from the scrap side of the paper and used for embellies.

CS: Bazzill; PP: Sassafrass Lass; Ink/Spray: Shimmerz in Cotton Candy and Red-y or Not; Gel Writer Pen; Adhesive: ATG and EK Success Pop Dots.

Thanks for looking! Have a great day!
