Just returned...and random stuff

Hey friends!
Sorry it's been awhile since I've posted. I just returned from Houston where I worked a retailer show for Prima. Sharon and I had a great time as always-I just adore her! And I met so many fun loving wonderful store owners! I also got to harass Tim even though i wasn't in any of his classes (which he was relieved to hear-LOL!) But I soon made up for that when our make and take table was right next to his-hehe! So-it's good to be home and I need to get back into the swing of things scrap wise. I have so much to do in the next couple of weeks.

AND-I read Twilight over the weekend while i traveled-HELLO! I have been missing out and now I can't wait to get my hands on the next book! Now I know why everyone has been going crazy over the series-I am crazy over it now too! I need to hurry and read New Moon before the movie comes out so i can go with my girls to see it. So now i am officially in love with Edward and there is no turning back-haha!

OK-on to other business besides my new obsession! I have signed on for another term with Bad Girls! And Wendy has so much planned in the coming months but I can't spill yet......
Her kits this month are nothing short of amazing and I had to share them with you--I think you'll love them too! She even came out with a Halloween kit--be still my heart! I love Halloween and this kit is all that! Take a peek!

Attic Treasures-amazing mix of papers, vintage goodies and more! What a perfect kit to dive into after the kiddos go to bed!


And this kit-Windswept Whispers---you could get lost in a fantasy land and never want to go back! Truly amazing mix of vintage papers, bling, gorgeous flowers and all that is left to add is your creativity. Yum!

Last month-I submitted this Bleuprint on Bad Girls and my take on it. I had so much fun with the goodies from Prima and playing around with my photos. I love to layer and this layout was no exception! I hope you give this a try and have fun with it!






Oh and one more thing I wanted to share! At the show in Houston-we had a make and take frenzy going on for the retailers and I thought you might like to see what we did. It's a little clutch, ready to use for just about anything! I folded a Canvas refill page from the Donna Downey collection in half, securing the sides with Fabric Tac. Then i embellished with our e-line crystals and pearls, and finished it with a ribbon. Too cute-right? Someone there also mentioned this would be great to put silverware in with a napkin and place it onto a table setting. How cute for a luncheon or a holiday dinner! It was so easy to make-it takes no time to make a bunch. And there are so many ways to decorate it-stamping, painting, flowers--you name it!

So, that's all i have for now! I plan to share a few more things soon-I promise! No more blog neglect!
Have a good one!
xoxo Cari
