life's all about challenges, some good some not so good but i personally LOVE scrap related challenges because they give me a starting point and push me to maybe try something I wouldn't normally or just get me going after a lul in mojo so here are a couple layouts I created for Scrapshotz challenges, Summer Sketchathon and in your Community.

All things UNITY!!

It feels so good to be creative again, seems the winter dulldrums are slowly disappearing along with the mounds of snow outside........there are a bunch of Junco birds that are loving my feeder and hanging out on the deck and they're so fun to watch.......I'm enjoying the challenges at All Things Unity and here are two cards i created today for the sketch challenge just posted... I can hardly wait to start getting my Unity Kits again starting this month!!

I love my Unity/Ippity stamps........i spent several hours last week reorganizing and sorting them, putting like images and themes together in the stampendous thin containers and i LOVE how easy it is to find a stamp.......and to discover some that i've had for ages and never used once so its like getting a whole bunch of new Unity rubber!!  and so here are a few cards  I did this week, the last one was for the unity monthly challenge combining the color combo and sketch, the second last card for the all things unity button challenge.  I hope in your neck of the woods the weather is better than mine (its been snowing for 2 days and we have a couple inches of fresh white stuff......i'm not impressed) but its a good excuse to stay warm inside and play with stamps and paper.

Just maybe...

Its been so long since I've attended a real life crop or an online one for that matter and so I hope to be able to play a little bit along with the ladies at Scrapshotz for their Oscar Crop this weekend......

come check it out!! play along.....lots of fun challenges and games!

Still Alive!

How very very sad...........not one post since october........its not like i haven't been creative at all but for some reason it seems i've neglected my blog.....and I'm going to blame it on my Ipod and new Iphone!!  its just so very handy to check my email and fb and things with the fabulous little portable devices that i really don't sit at the computer much, which means less message board time and apparently NO  blog time.  but i do have a few things to share.....I've done a fair bit of quilting as well this winter (and am in love with my new Pfaff sewing machine) so perhaps this blog will contain more than paper crafts from now on.   I love both crafts equally so why not!!
