Blog Hoppin' Xyron Winner!

I really am working on some mini albums, really truly.  But in between time I'm still hopping around on some blogs gleaning inspiration!  And sure enough I got an email from Beth at Xyron today saying I was yesterday's winner of the Mega Tape Runner.  Woo Hoo can I use that!!

 Check out their Facebook page, it's not too late to leave a comment to win tomorrow's!

Keep checking back, I'm working on a travel mini and 
one using the Swirlydoo's January kit that's been hiding in my craft closet.
Hopefully I'll have photos and videos up soon.

Blog Hoppin' Happiness

Well if this doesn't convince each and every one of you to do some 
blog hoppin' I don't know what will
Just before we headed out for a week's vacation in Colorado I went
hoppin' on the Scrapbook Steals June Blog Hop
yep, you guessed it, while in the high
Rocky Mountains I got an email from
Teresa Jay saying I was a winner!!!

Check it out here
This was an 'add on' gift from Teresa's blog.
For those of you that haven't blog hopped yet, 
lots of times not only will the principle blog 
that is hosting the hop give prizes
but lots of times blog stops along the way 
will also offer
their own personal RAK.
That means you have multiple times to win!

It's so fun to get inspired and also get a chance
at some goodies in your mailbox!

So get out there crafters and let your fingers
do the walkin'
along those blog hops, they are everywhere.
This is my RAK from Teresa!
Thank's Teresa so much!!!!

On a personal note:   We spent a fabulous week in Grandby, Grand Junction and Steamboat Springs Colorado.  What a gorgeous state this is.  So clean and beautiful.  Yep you guessed it, I'm missing my Pacific Northwest after seeing all that water, green and snow.  I'll be posting photos of our trip on my Reflections of My Year blog if you're interested in looking.  I may even do a photo video and post to YouTube this week.

I'll be back with more projects within the next couple of weeks, wow I have so many ideas swirly around and one almost completed.  I'll also be doing a mini for my Sister in Law and Brother (we met them in Grandby Colorado as they made their first leg of a trip from Washington State to Colorado, Tennessee up to Michigan over to Glacier National Park and back home again.  I can't wait to get all her pictures to start on this.  

Have a wonderful week everyone!   Patti

It's All in the Attitude!

It all started with an email!  A 50% site wide sale at Janlynn for 24 hours only.
I had to go look right???  Of course I did.
I had been drooling over these dolly mama stamps for eons
but was too cheap to pay full price.
When I went to look many of them had been marked to $3.00 then 50% off that!@#@!
Needless to say, I bought them all!

ATTITUDE that's what they're all about!


Check them out and have some fun creating your own cards with ATTITUDE!

There are more cards and more photos in my video


I was looking for an image to make a card
for my Grandson who is graduating from 5th grade this week.
I found this Alien on coloring,com
isn't he something?

I printed him a couple of times so I could have
one inside and one out.
Added some Glossy Accents and a little Stickles
and then popped him up on some dimensionals.
Used a few stickers for the Congrats,
printed a sentiment on my computer
using a font called
Aliens ate my Mum!
Stuck in some money and he's good to go!
