Some scrappy stuff...

so how is everyone's weekend going so far? these past few weeks have been crazy busy but i thrive off of it for some reason.

i have actually scrapped a lot despite working more hours and owen having football and school starting...i don't know how but i have, LOL! i think it is b/c i make time for it, kwim? i schedule it in my day just like i do my job and it works...even if i don't have any mojo there is always cleaning my room up, LOL!

i got to do my first blog post/tutorial over at the Cuttlebug Challenge blog! this is what i made so if you are curious, click here. And of course i had to use some Core'dinations ;0




i also did a tutorial over at Serendipity Scrapbooks for some Webster's Pages trim. they have THE best trim! i just love it and i made this flower when i had my guest spot there and i got a lot of questions on how i did it, so i made one with pom pom trim.



i like the one with the brown, satin trim much better but you get the idea. plus if you are like me, than you have a TON of pompom trim lying around! LOL! i should have started it up a bit more so it was centered better but once you start, you can't stop on this b/c of the adhesive.
