We had some fantastic entries for this contest! I sure hope everyone takes a peek at the layouts and leaves a little praise too. The CT knocked their heads together to vote on their favorite layouts......

New layouts

I've been busy! very very busy, BUT not too busy to scrap! NOPE! i need my sanity time more than ever!! here's a few layouts i made. If you notice, i'm getting more and more into artsy layouts... i need to get my paint out!

And this one is too funny, because my eyes are NOT green!! well, sorta i guess.. i've always considered them to be brown, the inner ring is brown the outer ring is green. Does that make them brown or green?? the ribbon, totally brings out the green!

This is a booklet my dh made when he was in Kindergarten! its TOO CUTE! it has interviews, and drawings... its really precious. I think i went overboard on the VINTAGE though, LOL

Let's make a memory!!

Are you all familiar with Cindy rushton?? she's AWESOME, she does the best seminars! and she does these classes where you get to go to all the seminars and get lots of ebooks and extra audios. I buy almost all of them, they are about $30 a session, some are less, one a year is a bit more but its huge, but there's lots of ways to get them for less expensive. here's the next one coming up,
Let's make a memory
it looks fantastic! When you buy a ticket you get all the door prizes, ebooks, extra audio's an all that, BUT if you can't afford to, she let's you attend live for FREE!! which is AWESOME! She's so generous.

And that link above is my affiliate link, if you use it to buy a ticket, send me your reciept and your mailing address to and i'll send you a scrappy rak as a thank you for using my affiliate link :-)

Another thing to consider if money is tight is that she offers a "mommy homework" program you reply to one of her questions, and she credits your account with $5 or so of credit toward her store!!! its SUCH an awesome deal! i've gotten 2 free seminar sets now, including Let's make a memory! you can find that by going to her BLOG and scrolling down to mommy homework. If you want to get an idea what it's like, check out the preview chat.
