Webster's Challenge

Happy Friday!!! I posted the challenge over at Inspire Me this month. If you haven't visited, this site is just full of amazing Webster's Pages inspiration!!! The challenge is to scrap a heritage photo. All you have to do is post your page at the Inspire Me site and you'll be entered to win one of the new Webster's lines. All of the information is right on the homepage. You still have a few days left to enter!

Here's my page. This is my grandfather. He built me this amazing doll house one Christmas and it has always been one of my prized possesions.

Here are a few more Webster's projects that I've done this month. These two cards use one of my favorite lines - Ting A Ling. I added some Queen and Co. felt to both of them. The second card is my CPS card for the week using Clear Artistic stamps.

On this last card I spritzed Glimmer Mist onto white cardstock then stamped the Basic Grey stamp onto it and cut out the flowers.

Thanks for stopping by. I'd love to see what you come up with for the challenge!

Day of Blogging

Well, Tuesday has officially become my day at the MMM blog. I posted a new card there just now. We've been playing around with the Dymo Caption Maker. Scroll down past my post for some fun ideas on using it. And pull out that Dymo if you haven't used it for a while!

Today was also my day at the Pink Paislee blog. I had a lot of fun with this project!

So, now for something you can see here.... here is a project I did for Emma's this week. Cindy posted a fun sketch and here's my interpretation of it.

Head on over for some great inspiration!

That's about it. I think I'm blogged out for today. ;) Thanks for stopping by, Anabelle

Happy Friday!

Another busy week. Seems like that is the norm these days! But, hooray, it's the weekend. (Which will be filled with soccer games, a birthday party....guess it won't be any calmer. ;))

Here are a couple of things I have to share with you.
I did this for Emma's. If you are in the mood for Halloween head over. There are the cutest projects that are all Halloween themed. Besty Veldman is the guest designer this month! Love her stuff!!!

And here's my CPS card for this week. I used paper and embellishments from Paper Adventures. The stickers all hae the cutest sayings. I used the KandiCorp Professional Hot Fix Applicator and Crystalina Hot Fix Crystals on it. It was a lot of fun to put together!

I stayed up until 1:30 last night purging and organizing my scraproom. I've found a home for almost all of my MMM goodies. ;) Check back because in the next few days, I will have a RAK!

Have a great weekend!

New Pink Paislee!!!

I'm so excited! Rebecca and Holly just released two new lines. They are both amazing. (But, then again, they are Pink Paislee. How could they not be???)
I can't wait to get my hands on them and start creating!

The first is called Tinsel Town. Here are the postcard paper, colored rubons and ribbons that go with the line.

The second line is called Sweet Cakes. Check it out!!!

There are so many things I love about both lines, but I think the best thing is that they are not traditional Christmas and Valentine's Collections. They are truly versatile.

Head over to the Pink Paislee blog to see all of the papers that go along with these two lines.

Thanks for letting me share! And thanks for stopping by!

A Few Cards

Not a lot I can share right now. (That seems to be a recurring theme around here, sorry.) Hopefully, soon, though!
Here are a few new things. First, this is my CPS card of the week. We were sponsored by ScraPerfect (that's spelled with ONE p). It's a little pouch that you rub on a surface before priting or stamping. I used mine on velum. I stamped a Cornish Heritage Farms backgrounder on there. Then I added a Pink Paislee topsider, some Sassafrass paper and a K and Co. sticker. The sentiment is a Scenic Route rubon.

This next one uses a mix of some older and newer Webster's Pages papers. I cracked myself up with the sentiment.

And last but not least, here's a set I did for Emma's this month. It uses the Melissa Frances boy line.

Well, thanks for stopping by. :) Have a great day!

The Box

I don't normally do those 'look what I got' posts, but I just had to today.. ;) Look what arrived yesterday! Holy goodness, there was a ton of stuff packed in there. I'm just overwhelmed!!! The Fed Ex man pulled up and unloaded it...

Then, he literally rolled it into the foyer. It was too heavy to lift.

Here's a view of what it looked like when I first opened it... (Um, yes, I look gross in this shot but it was the end of a long day and I have a nasty cold!!!)

I spread it all out to get a few shots. I feel like leaving it down in the living room for a while since I have to find space for it all in my scraproom now. ;) Plus, it looks like Christmas morning down there.

Here's a closer view of the goodies...

The sponsors were all extremely generous! A huge thanks to Memory Makers and Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L, ANW Crestwood, Core'dinations, Die Cuts With A View, Dove of the East, Helmar, K & Company, Karen Foster Design, Me & My Big Ideas, Miss Elizabeth's, Pioneer Photo Albums, PreserveIt Frames, Prism Paper, Ranger, Tamron, Therm O Web (Mambi), Three Bugs In A Rug, We R Memory Keepers .

Can't wait to play!!!

End of the Week!

Pheeeew, this was a crazy week! I finally got laundry all put away from our beach getaway just last night! Don't know where the time went.

We packed a lunch and met friends at Milburn Orchards this morning. The kids had a blast playing on the playground, feeding the animals and eating the Apple Cider Donuts(if you've never had them, they are SINFUL!) I'm so glad that Ryan is in a half day program so we can do stuff like this. I'm trying to smush this all in this year, before our time together is done.

I've been busy working on some things this week that, unfortunately, I can't share yet. I can share a layout I did for the MMM blog. Just click HERE to see it. I will be blogging once a week for MM. The girls have been posting some amazing things. Jaime showed these amazing necklaces. She got the kits to make them from Etsy and I had to order some!!! What an awesome way to use scraps!!! If you haven't checked out the blog, I highly recommend it. There will be one or two new posts each day. And all of the work is done exclusively for the blog by the team. I'm still amazed that I'm working with these amazingly talented women.

I'll leave you with this quick card. I used some Queen and CO. felt, MM chipboard and cardstock.

Finally, I was given this blog award from Summer Fullerton. (Thanks, girl!)

So, I am passing it along to these girls (who may have already gotten it, but oh well...I love their blogs anyway!)

Kelly--because she has the cutest boys and I love her cards!
Leslie-because she uses color like no one's business (and she takes such fun family photos).
Ashley--because she makes the most beautiful cards!
Julia--because she is the stamping QUEEN!!! I am so inspired by her!
Emma's Paperie Blog--because Cindy has the coolest store around and I'm always in awe of what my teammates come up with when she posts the projects on the blog each week.

Looks like we're going to be drenched with Hurricane Hannah tomorrow. Wish me luck!
Thanks for stopping by!

Happy Labor Day!

Sorry it's been almost a week since my last post. We just got back from 4 glorious days at the Jersey shore. It was wonderful. Most of Fran's family were down at some point. We spent a lot of time on the boardwalk, at the arcade, playing in the waves and playing mini-golf! Ryan discovered Bakugans thanks to the arcade ticket cash-in place. We now have a new obsession! I got some fun beach pics, too.

So, here's a layout I did recently. Yes, it's about starting kindergarten. I have a feeling you'll be seeing more of this topic, too. Anyway, I stamped the letters using brown paint to create a background for the photo. And no, that's not first day of school photos. I actually took him up to school the week before last to take some shots. I figured the first day would be nuts so we went up ahead of time. (First day was nuts...but I managed some fun shots anyway)

Hope you're enjoying your Labor Day. I'm just going to spend the day catching up on the mail and doing laundry!

Thanks for stopping by!!!
