Hey hey!

What is the world coming to? Blogging twice in one week? I know-crazy! It is late at night right now but I am too jazzed up to go to bed. It's been quite a week but a very productive one I must say. Live with Prima has a ton of great stuff coming up and i have been working hard at getting everything organized through December. We have some amazing designers joining us for some awesome Prima classes in the next couple of months. Claudine Helmuth-yes-the amazing collage artist-will be guest designing on October 26th! I am so excited to have her on the show. She will rock it!

Sharon and I were in Minnesota this month for Scrapfest at Mall of America. It was so fun and crazy busy! They set up the entire event throughout the mall, with classes, make and takes, demos and crops. It was so wonderful to meet so many scrappers from all over that area! And i got to meet the one and only Kathy (kathask) and her super sweet Mom during the show. I was so glad to meet them in person--love them! Here is a photo Kathy's Mom took of us after the Prima workshop. Thanks for the photos girl!

AND----I am guest desiging for this month!!!!!!! Thanks Dana for the invite!
They have such a great online store-they have been around for quite a while! Lots of goodies in their shop, a great blog full of ideas (so inspiring) and a nice quaint message board that you won't get lost in. So friendly over there!

Here is a link to the site:

oh and they are giving away prizes for just commenting on their blog--how cool!

They sent me a generous goodie bag of products from October Afternoon and Maya Road. Here is a minibook I made using their Canvas Pocket Album and Farm Fresh paper line from OA. I just fell in love with this adorable paper line. I think I may have to give this little album to Gavin...
Lots of layering with papers, pins, alphas and more. I just love the charms too.
I decided to leave the canvas plain-I really like that way...

Here are a few pages inside. More papers, labels and cute little animals everywhere. And nothing is complete without some ribbon and flowers.

The pockets are little pages included in the little book-how cute are they? I added some stickers and stapled a little phrase at the bottom. And more pins with charms. The charms are little fruits and birds and butterflies that come in all colors.

This is the other side of the pocket page with flowers tucked underneath the flower stickers. And a sweet little journal card with added embellies. Oh and i see the cow's fanny from the next page-LOL! Never realized that when I took the photo...haha....

OK-getting tired now! Thanks for stopping by! I hope you liked my little book and i have another project I just completed for them that I will share soon. If you can't wait for me to post-head on over to their blog to check it out...
Night friends!
xoxo CAri
