Stamping Challenge

Soooooo, I have to tell you when I first saw the current noel mignon challenge I was UBER excited! I Love stamping and I'm still learning....so i don't use them much. anywho....last night i got out my supplies and got busy. 

i got a limited edition kit from noel I think it was called Elementry, Mr. Watson.....and got busy.  She always puts a stamp in the kit and I had already been eyeballing the pink paislee stamps that came in the kit.  The picture i took from my littles valentine party at school. 

I stamped around the edges of the picture with ballet blue ink from stampin up....and i put the stamps on an angle on purpose...love. And then I stamp the tag that "training" is on with kraft ink from su and cut out around it.

I cut these pencils out of some OA included in the kit, used a brad from stash and tied with some ribbon from sei also in the kit.

then i added embellies....all from the limited edition kit except the yellow tag which is from delightfully domestic.  I inked the edges of the letters i and n with some brown ink just because i wanted them to stand out. Oh and the little yellow ruler....i cut that off the OA embellish packaging!!!! :D

hope you enjoy! come over and join the challenge!!! I think noel is also giving away some new washi tape by hambly!!!!! :D

Have a hoppy easter weekend!

Finished off Kits! :D

So yesterday I was DETERMINED to get some scrapbooking time in! The day before I spent the whole day cleaning out and re-organizing my closet for my scrap space. I haven't gotten to sit down and really scrap in a long time.  So, I did...sometimes with one of the littles in my lap, sometimes with another little playing across the table and other times in complete silence! I managed to finish off 2 noel kits....I finished Very Virginia from january and Delightfully Domestic from March.  I have not purchased the April kit but I have decided that I really do want it!!!!! :D And now that my current kits drawer is empty...it needs to be refilled! hahaha:D Ok, so this blog is picture heavy....enjoy.  Oh the mini album I got from here!

Pencil Lines Sketch 232

So I have been following Pencil Lines here recently to help get some of my creative mojo back! Haha! Anyway they do a weekly sketch that anyone can participate in and this week I have decided to participate.  The prize? Well it is the Fantastic Jump and Jive kit over at noel....so OF COURSE I am participating....and let me tell ya, I LOVED this sketch.  I used a new kit or a limited edition kit I ordered last week from noel and some flowers from my stash. I LOVE the colors and the brightness of this layout! :D

HOLY MOLY

The holy moly is for a few things: first it's been a month since I have blogged....so sorry about that...I have been crazy busy around here and things are not quieting down.  The second thing is you have GOT to go check out the latest kit and some of the limited edition kits left over at noel! :D I do not have the newest kit yet but I am hoping when there is money in our budget again there are a few left...I did however get one of her limited edition ones last week and I CANNOT WAIT to tear into it.  The other thing is have you seen my friend Virginia's blog? She has MY name on her blog...right there! Big as day! OMGosh! I have no idea how I found her...cannot remember for the life of me and I WISH like heck that I knew her in person! She has got to be the sweetest and one of the most talented people I have "met."  The new challenge at noel's is to lift someone from the message board and SHE lifted ME! What an HONOR!!!! Thanks V! I think she is just absolutely amazing....any time I have any scrappy questions or party planning questions she is so nice to answer and point me in a direction she would go.  She always encourages all of us over on the board and she is someone I look up to as a scrapper! I really do admire her as a mother and scrapper...she is so real, so humble, she loves Christ and shares that, so artistic...she wows me every time I read her blog or see something new! :D So this is my "ode" to Virginia! Thank you so much for "lifting" me.....I really am honored...and honestly almost fell out of my chair when i saw this! :D  (muah and hugs)
