not a lot in between....


well...it's towards the end of the month and I don't have too many LO's to show you...I had surgery last Friday and I'm still recovering and haven't scrapped in about two weeks. it's all very sad indeed. maybe this weekend I'll feel up to playing with paper! I have three awesome boxes of goodies to get out. One from http://www.2croppincousinz.com/ (their Nov. kit!) one from http://www.scarletlime.com/ (their Oct. kit) and a box of fun goodies from http://www.awalkdownmemorylane.net/ (just some random stuff I purchased but can't wait to use). so see...lots to do!
Here are two of the LO's that I did for Scrappin the music ------------> link on the side bar! this is this weeks current challenge, you have until Sunday to get your entries in. the song this week is Kid Rock's "All Summer Long" I used my Sept. Scarlet lime kit to complete this delicious LO of McKenna helping her daddy make pancakes a few weeks ago. she's really into helping in the kitchen right now, as are all the kids!
This is last weeks Challenge. Nirvanan's "Smells like teen spirit" as soon as I heard what the song was I knew exactly what photos of Tyler I wanted to get scrapped. this is him on his birthday in July. he's getting pretty good actually. the paper goodies I bought at Archivers in Chicago when I was there for summer CHA. not too bad for me, I only let them sit a few months! yay me!

This last LO has been 3 years in the making. no joke. I'm terrible slow at scrapping events, and I posted a challenge a 2CC this month (you have until November 14th the get your entry in!) it was to scrap a holiday or event in non-traditional colors. use two colors of cardstock, at least one photo and at least one PP, that's' it and the prize is awesome! you should all totally check it out. what's funny? I'm wearing this same black robe this saturday to the same halloween event. this time though, I will be UBER SCARY with a slashed throat and new wig and everything. will be fun!
