Lemme' toot a little!

I totally thought I already posted this but my mind is whacko these days.
I found out last week that I made the 2010 DT for Scrap For A Cure!!!! I am super excited. Their kits are always the latest and greatest and best of all, they donate 5% of their earnings to a honorable charity. Super generous, right? This quarter we are supporting Feeding America. I am so excited to be apart of such a great cause and company.
Check them out, buy a kit and feel good that you helped a great cause. I love their kit this month, it's called Wild Boys.
Thanks for letting me toot my horn!

Are you ready for Christmas?

I'm sure the answer is no. I'm not either but its in my thoughts thanks to some scrapping I did.

I wanted to share the projects I did with the November Altered kit from Serendipity Scrapbooks with you. This kit was so much fun to work with. And it totally got me into the Christmas spirit a little earlier than usual. Fa la la!!
The main collections are Bo Bunny "St. Nick", Making Memories "Mistletoe" and Core'dinations cardstock. So much yumminess!
The kit also included a 8x8 mixed media album from Fancy Pants. This is such a cool book - some pages are felt, some cardstock and a few pages are transparency sheets.

Let's start off with the album...

Christmas '08 album

Here are my LO's

Christmas Ham

Home For the Holidays

Fa La La

Now This is Bliss

What do ya think? There are 2 other kits to choose from as well. All adorable!
Last month they sold out fast so go check them out!

November Sponsor: Jen's House Of Scrap

You are in for a treat once again. Our sponsor is Jen's House Of Scrap. Jen is offering her brand new November kit "Grandma's Attic (just released yesterday).

Here's a little about Jen and her cute business:

"Jen's House of Scrap is a monthly kit club and scrapbooking communitythat is a true work of "heart". The website was built by my husband in the evenings after the children went to bed, all to help me realize my dream of owning my own scrapbooking business. My kits are designed with home and family, affordability and style in mind. Jen's House offers beautiful, high quality kits for $25 a month plus actual shipping (no high flat rates).
November's kit, "Grandma's Attic", is full of things that remind me of my Grandma Smith. At 95 (almost 96) years young, grandma is full of life, vibrant with a splash of pizazz, and so is this kit."

So how do you get your hands on this fabulous kit?? Simply complete any or all of the sketches posted this month or last. At the end of the month I will randomly choose one to get the kit. It could be you!
