Hello Weekend!

Hi everyone!!
I am so glad it's the weekend-the whole week was crazy and busy! I had my cookie exchange last night with my scrappy girls--we do a gift exchange too-but we do the "Steal Someone's Bag If You Like It Better Game"-lol-not sure what to call it! It was so fun and it got evil toward the end--lots of stealing and I think poor Amy was targeted the most!! But I think they were ALL fabulous gifts--I just love these girls! And...we had the most amazing assortment of cookies known to man....WOW-these girls can bake! I am sure to gain 10 pounds this week..sigh

We got a ton of snow yesterday! So the kids will be sledding for sure! It certainly feels like the holidays with all of that gorgeous white stuff floating around. I hope to get a lot of scrappy work done today--yay!
Worth Mentioning:
Graphic 45 is featuring the December Bad Girls Kit-Grannie's Attic
They are going to post the DT's work all weekend long-so cool! There is going to be lots of
eye candy when they show all of the gorgeous LO's-the girls did a great job with this kit-so inspiring! Check it out: http://www.g45papers.com/blog/index.php

Prima Blog: There has been so much posted over there-tons of amazing holiday ideas, gorgeous creations and classes too! My red christmas book was featured and you can see more pages of that if you visit. I only showed a couple here. They like to show projects there first before we can post them ourselves. http://prima.typepad.com/
And keep checking in over there-I have a bunch more holiday ideas they plan to feature! YAY!
And here are some more crafty holiday ideas:

These two cards have been published in Paper Crafts-I love making stamped cards for Christmas. And I love adding gold or stickle sparkle too!!



This card is over the top embellished-but I love it! I have an idea about how to use it differently-so I think I will do this and post it after the weekend!! I used the Voila as a mask and sprayed with glimmer mist. Then I added the trim at the bottom and tons of flowers.

This ornament was made a while back for a magazine project through Prima. I still love it and thought it was a great idea to share. I cut a circle from chipboard and covered both sides with paper. Then cut a left over photo and placed it onto the prepared chipboard. Then embellished and added ribbon to hang. So easy-another great idea for the kiddos!!Thats all for today!! I will be back soon!

I love loe love the ornament you made. I went to Adrienne's class today at Prima marketing. When I found out about the class I jumped at the chance to attend. It was so awesome to meet her and create a beautiful mini album. I'll be posting mine on my blog on Monday! As always thankls fro your inspiration!
