Have a look-see

Hey everyone, can you believe this is my second post this week? I think I might be getting back on track : )
Today over at the Urban Swank Blog I have a post about a cute little calendar I made.

You can see how I made it over at THIS POST. I would love if you stopped by to have a look.
I have a busy day today. Off to my LSS to plan some classes and I don't know about you but Thursday night is TV night at my house.

Project 12 august

Hey everyone, I am finally back on track getting my scrapbooking grove on. Last week I went to a friends house and got 5 layouts done. That's right!!! 5! One of those layouts was the August Project 12.
Here is the August sketch:
and my version...

I used one of my Studio Calico kits for this one and the August project 12 sketch. I added the row of photos on the bottom left since I had so many great shots. I also changed my photos to look a little more vintage to match the layout colours I chose.
A pretty simple layout this month. I'm finding a lot of my everyday layouts tend to be this way.

Later this week I have a post going up at Urban Swank. You won't want to miss it. A little altered frame turned into a monthly calendar. I will keep you posted.
Have a fabulous week and I will see you back this Thursday.

Come one come all!!!

Practical Scrappers is having their biggest contest ever!!!! Here are the details:
-Anyone can participate - we're even letting our designers participate
-For the first round you are to create a card with pink on it and send it to us via email by 11:59 pm ET on September 30th. We will pick a number of finalists (we can't give you a specific number because the more people who participate the more finalists we will pick) and announce the finalists on World Cardmaking Day - October 1st.
-You may submit up to three cards for the first round.
-The next topic will be announced and those crafters will continue on. The only major difference is that from this round on readers will get to vote for their favorite cards in an anonymous fashion (American Idol style elimination). The determination of the winner in the final round will either be judged by the PS administrative team or voting - we reserve the right to determine this at a later date.
-The contest will end in early November with the winner receiving a $25 Robin's Nest Gift Certificate, goodies from several of manufacturer sponsors, a kit from Scraptastic, and maybe even more...we're working to make this one awesome prize worth at least $75.00!
-Are you ready? Go get creating! Send us your card with pink on it to:

I don't know about you but the weather here has turned cold fast. It is very apparent that fall is here and I am missing my warm summer beach days. For my project I made bookmarks using the awesome PSA Essentials stamps and the fabulous Urban Lily papers.

There is nothing better than laying on the beach with a good book.
