Heidi rocks!!

I just love Heidi..she sent me the most awesome prizes and RAKs! What a wonderful surprise after a rotten day! For those of you know me, know that I am prone to bad luck..I've become use to it lately..haha...and tonight I drove almost 2hrs. home from work to find that I was locked out (I live in TN and work in NC).. Hubby had to work late and he had my key because my BIL and SIL have the spare. Thank goodness for them..they met me 1/2 way to get the spare...
Back to my RAK..Heidi is amazing and knows exactly the kind of stuff I love! We are so alike in our styles that she sent me (without even knowing)some paper I have been looking for..WE R Memory keepers Promenade!! How awesome is that! I won a blog challenge she had going, as well as a points challenge on her group and she sent some RAKs as well, so I received all kinds of goodies!
clear skittles, a rainbow of colored stardust pens I've been lusting over (haha!), Tombow refill, some blingy fourishes (love these!), and two rolls of ribbon to match the pattern paper!! How awesome is that!! Love you Heidi!! Go check her out at

Blog hopping...

Today I hopped over to Lea's blog and was thrilled to find that she designed the cover cards for the CARDS mag I just got in the mail..YAY Lea!!! So checking out her blog is a must for today!
Happy Sunday! hugs,T

Woooohooo....I am now typing from my very own new laptop..early birthday present from hubby..yippee for me. Thank you to my sweet SIL for calling and putting the bug in his ear, teehee! Now we don't have to fight for puter time constantly, and I got really tired of trying to type on the teensy Ipod screen while he was having his puter time. Now I can plop down in my chair while he's watching sports and type away...HOW EXCITING!! OK..just had to share in case anyone wants to share in my joy, lol! hugs,T

Artscow prints

I received my Artscow prints last week and I have to say they are really nice!! I wanted to get my first shipment in before I recommended them to anyone. Now that I have them in my hands and see how great the quality is, I feel comfortable sending everyone to the site. You get tons of freebies..constantly. Right now I have freebie coupons for 12x18's, 8x10's and tons of 5x7's and 4x6's. Also have freebie ornaments, photo books, and other gifts. So head on over to using this link: to receive your 400 free prints. It is out of Hong Kong so it takes about a week to get the pics back but it was well worth the wait..especially since I only had to pay shipping!! Right now when you sign up, you can use one of these coupon codes:

And get a photo book for $11.95 with free shipping. Its great! I have been designing digi pages to use for my photo book!! Can't wait to get them all finished~ I'll share one of my finished pages..This is a digi kit by Tia it!

"Way to Go" mini cards...

Had a few moments of peace..(very rare in my house!) so I made up some "Way to Go" mini cards to mail to the ScrapbookPlace Jewelry box. The background PP is by My Mind's Eye. The Paisley is from a Cuttlebug embossing folder~ Perfect Paisley~ and is rubbed with a burgundy Fresco chalk pad to make it "pop". Stamp is CTMH. Hope you like them!

Fall cards

I just finished up some fall card fronts for an upcoming swap, I like the vintage feel to them...The bird stamp is from a 1998 set by Stampin' Up called Feathered Friends~ 10 years old and still stamps great!! PP by Fancy Pants (stripe) and DreamStreet Designs.

Trying to weed down my stack of pics from the beach. This is a 6x12 layout I did with the cutie Dream Street Papers Birdie Bits collection..This is Lanie and Jeremy ages 5 and 4, they played together constantly the whole week at the beach..Lanie says: "he's my boyfriend and I think he's sweet on me too"..hee hee..too cute!

Birdie bits by Dream Street papers...

I just love this birdie paper collection. The brights are really awesome with the stripes, dots and checks. I made this baby bird layout using a pic of Jake peeking around the tree. I thought the paper really accented his shirt. Hope you like!
