Fun Happenings

It's a busy time of year! With CHA around the corner, I'm busy doing lots of projects. Of course, this is when my printer has decided to die!!! And of course, I just added three brand new cartridges of ink...GRRRR! Then, my modem wasn't picking up a signal, so I couldn't get online for a while yesterday... Send me some good "healthy hardware" vibes!!

So, one of the things I've been busy doing is some projects for Tattered Angels.
They have the most beautiful new colors of Glimmer Mist coming out for Fall and Winter. I'll be sharing some projects later, but had this little card to show today. I used a snowflake glimmer screen to create the card base. I used Frost Glimmer Mist, which is one of my new favorites!! I spritzed a snowflake glimmer chip and added some glitter and bling. This was a really quick and simple one, but I love how it shines.

Speaking of Tattered Angles, they are having a little contest right now. The bottles are going to be looking a bit different, they'll have screen printed labels rather than stickers. Glimmer Mist is the same great product with a Fabulous NEW Look!

TA is looking to get the word out and they need your help. All you have to do is post about this on your blog. Save the above picture to your computer, then upload it to your blog in the post. Add the bolded phrase above. Then send your link to Liz Hicks at
She will verify the posts and then add your name to a drawing that will be held on Monday. The winner will get the new Winter colors! Let me tell you, they are AWESOME! I just got mine yesterday. There is WHITE!! I can't wait to use it. So, write those posts up ASAP. ;)
I'll leave you with this last project. It was in Memory Makers July/August issue int he Masterpieces column. We had to do a layout with the theme of change. Mine talks about becoming a stay at home mom. Sadly, my SAHM status will be changing this fall, but I''ve been so blessed to have had this time with Ryan for the past 6 years.

I made the die cut edges from a piece of KI lace cardstock. And I made the house paper piecing using a Maya Road sheer house as a base.

Well, that's it for today. I hope you all have a wonderful 4th of July weekend!
