2 Toots And A No-Go!

Has it really been a week since I last blogged? WOW! I have been so busy getting no sleep- LOL! My Xan has had a cold for about 2 weeks now. He's so stuffy and therefore not sleeping through the night and guess who gets the walk the floor in the wee hours of the morning? You've guessed, 'cause of course DH can't hear the baby crying!!! I swear I'm so tired, my face hurts and I'm getting headaches again!! I ended up taking the day off today because I just couldn't get it together this morning. I have a pretty busy month, so it looks like I won't be getting any rest anytime soon!

Anyway...I have a bit of happy news...I was named as an honorable mention in the Reminisce DT search and I finally received the latest paper trends mag with my altered photo cube in it along with a box of scrap goodies! Check it out!!
As for my no-go, I didn't make it through to round 5 of the top designer contest...Oh well! I still plan on playing along for the last 2 challenges, if I have time. Here's the LO that I created for round 4.

A quick card I made for my DT position at scrap-diner

The ribbon and lace on the following projects are from savvynsassy's ZZ school days kit.

Lots of distressing on this one--loving the Ambrosia here!

I used my stylus to dot acrylic paint on the thickers to match the butterfly in the photo.

I'm teaching chipboard techniques at my LSS next month and created this LO to demonstrate 5 of them.

Are you looking for different ways to alter chipboard? I have demonstrated 14 different ways can mix and match them...the possibilities are endless!

Thanks for taking the time to stop by!!
