it's RAK time!

First off I wanted to mention some a fun blog hop going on over at the Nook. I have never been there before but have heard some good things about it so I ventured over and joined. The hop starts here so check it out!

AND make sure you check out Websters sneaks!!! click here to check out how to win, too! Oh and head over to InspireME for a chat tonight at 9 pm EST.

I hope everyone had a great weekend! Make sure you check out the DT call over at Serendipity Scrapbooks and the crop that is coming up, too!

BUT FIRST I HAVE TO TELL YOU HOW EXCITED I AM FOR THE NEW YEAR. You know why? Because it will soon be MARCH {actually they come out a bit earlier than that} . If you can guess what I am excited about based on this mini album, post it here and I will enter you in for a RAK from ME! I have some nice goodies sitting here for a lucky winner ....rubons ...stamps ...ribbon...maybe some chippies....I am feeling super generous today! I had to leave out the photo where I journaled about what these are and the close up so I couldn't give it away completely ;)

This awesome kit came from A Kiss on the Chic last year and I finally got around to making this album last week. I loaded it with kit goodness from Chatterbox and Creative Imaginations and myStampBOX stamps and Core'dinations Cardstock. I used some of the new BG Sugar Rush rubons, too. I loved that this chipboard could go through my Cuttlebug. AND of course I used my Tombow adhesive. I Love it, especially the multi liquid glue. It is perfect for chipboard and acrylic like I used in this book.
