Guess How Many & Win!

Hello fellow paper crafters!  I am fortunate enough to have an extra copy of the latest & greatest May/June edition of Paper Crafts magazine.  I would LOVE to pay it forward and send it to one of you for FREE.  Just guess how many Prima flowers are in this glass jar.....
The jar measures 7" tall by 4 1/4" on each side.  

Just post a comment below with your guess and check back here tomorrow (4/20/11) at 10:00am PST and I will announce the winner.  The person coming the closest without going over will win.  (In the event more than one person posts the correct guess, the first post will win).

Thanks for visiting my blog and good luck to all!!

It's a 'Good' Monday!

Well, to begin my Monday morning, I checked Facebook for my daily dose of what's going on and I spied a post by Paper Crafts that the winners of the Color Inspiration Challenge #3 were announced.  Wait for it.............yes!!!  I won!  This was the first time I've won a challenge.  I really am so excited and honored.
To see the post and my fellow winners, click here.

The second positive thing that happened was I picked up my new glasses.  Now, I know that new glasses are not the biggest thing in the world, but it had been 4 years since I had new glasses.  It's one of those things that I put on my 'To Do' list and just kept postponing it. 

I can see clearly now............

In My Beautiful Balloon-Moxie Fab Challenge

Hot air balloon prints are all the rage right now.  And it's easy to see why.  They evoke a feeling of being free; getting away from it all.  And we all need a little of that right now, huh?  When I saw this patterned paper, I thought 'it is a little on the dark side'.  But there was something mysterious about the look of this pattern and I loved that.  I fussy-cut one of the balloon images and layered it over the same image using foam tape and added rhinestones.  The button reminds me of the era and the intricacies of the balloon itself.  You can tell I put alot of thought into this :)  Anyway, here is my entry for the challenge.....

Supplies used: seafoam cardstock from The Paper Co., patterned paper from Graphic 45, ribbon from Michaels, button from BoBunny, rhinestones from Michaels and border punch from EK Success.

Enjoy your Saturday everyone and thanks for stopping by.

I'm mentioned on a blog!!

Well, Happy Friday everyone!  What a long week it's been.  It's suppose to rain here this weekend, although you would never know it by looking out the window.  The sun is shining and it's just beautiful.  I must confess that I would not mind a few showers; it's the perfect excuse for me to stay indoors and play with all my crafting goodies I've bought over the last few days.  With all the manufacturers coming out with such beautiful papers, embellishments, flowers, stamps, I just can't resist!
One of my favorite scrapbook stores is Paper Tales located here in San Diego.  It's a smaller store, but it is PACKED with all kinds of trinkets, ribbons, markers, paper, name it!  Plus, the staff is just Super!  I visited the store a couple of weeks ago and they were kind enough to take my picture with my first cover.  And to my surprise, they posted it on their blog!  How cool is that?!  I am truly flattered.  Here's a link to their blog.  Just scroll down a bit and you'll see my face. :)

If you're ever in the San Diego area, stop in to the store.  I promise you will love it as much as I do!

Until next time..................
