BLOG CANDY, BLOG CANDY, BLOG CANDY ALERT!

I HAVE ANOTHER PUNCH UP FOR GRABS!


I have another punch just like the one I previously gave away just waiting to go to a new home! I only have four people participating so far which isn't that many. I really would like at least 12 to participate. Here's how to get into the drawing!

1. Go to this link:
Happy Scrappin Scrapbooking


2. Look through the listing of companies. You can view this list by looking on the left side and clicking "Shop by Company."

3. Then, leave a comment in which you share three companies with which you aren't very familiar.

That's all you have to do. I'll wait a bit and then have Random.org select a winner for the second punch! I couldn't resist buying them. They were there - just hanging around, waiting for someone to take them home. The store had just gotten them in! I was lucky to get three of the four they had!

I have been busy working in my scraproom. Here are some goodies to share with you.

The first photo is of an Easter Countdown wall hanging. I used my Cricut to create each circular scene. The base is a muffin tin and the covers are secured using magnetic tape. Inside each muffin tin, you could place some candy or, for something larger, a coupon for that item. You'd start it 12 days before Easter. I threaded ribbon through the hole so that it can hang. Cool huh?

Here are a couple of cards I also recently made. I just love these stamps and have so much fun working with them. I also used Flower Soft where needed. I am sooooo loving this product. I used my Copic markers to color the images.

Now, I have a couple of layouts to share. Can you tell I've been busy? What gets me is this. Why does it take me as long to make a card as it does to make a layout? I don't get it. LOL

Never Lose Your Sense of Wonder


My DH bought this paper for me about a year ago. I figured I should probably use it before it gets destroyed, LOL. When I saw the theme of the papers, I knew EXACTLY which photo I would use. Look at that face!

BUSTED!


Now, my baby is all grown up - well into manhood. I wouldn't want to be his age in this time. It is so very, very difficult for young ones just starting out. He works so hard and is doing well in spite of our country's economic mess. Bless him, dear Lord.

Uniquely You


Son, if you are reading this, feel free to SEND ME MORE PHOTOS TO SCRAP! :o)

Well, if you have any questions, let me know! I may have answers!

Thank you so much for stopping by. I so appreciate your visits. They are a bright spot in my day!

XO,
Chris

Loved the cards, especially the one with flower soft. As always the scrappages are great, especially loved the paper used on the grown up one of your son, which company does it come from?

WOW Chris! Thank you SO much for fab punch which arrived today! It is so generous of you. I'm going to have a play tonight. :D

Love the new additions to you blog - especially the Easter Countdown wall hanging. What a great idea!

Annita - you cannot believe how useful a Cricut is when you are a teacher. I use mine all the time! I sometimes wonder how I managed without it!!

Thanks again Chris. :)

Love the 'Uniquely You' LO. It has inspired me to finish a LO of my youngest son.

Three companies I'm the least familiar with are:
1. BamPop
2. Jacquard
3. Three Bugs In A Rug
