National Scrapbook Day 4/30/11

Look at what I have for you! My make n take slot is 4/30/11 at 2:00 be there or be umm somewhere else?? Nahh.............. "Come join us and have fun"!

This tag will have a few surprising techniques and it has the date and name of the event so you may scrap and document your day. SEWWW much fun!" LOL"  uhh humm.....Pardon the pun.

Dolly Tag

I made this tag by using the copics on a printed image then cutting and distressing it in a worn way, The black lace at the bottom is some coordinations paper that has been punched and the letter is a old school set of cuttlebug dies. She reminds me of a old picture I have of my mom when she was little.

Design challenge : Charleston Scrapbooking for March 2011

Our challenge was to make something nifty with the little dollar packages of stamps.....This is what I came up with. I stamped and embossed on the wood then used tons of ink to distress,lined it and made flower /paper embellishments. The feet are beads on pegs and super glued into a hole i made with a paper piercer.

Craft fair happiness...........

We came ,We sold, We spent more than we made! It was a ball! The craft fair at the Charleston scrapbooking was uber fun with the vendors selling way more to each other than we sold to the outside public BUT, "dat how we do". There was stamps and naked ....books,creepy dolls with clothes and seasonal ceramics, jewelry, and purses the list is endless. All in all for what started out as a little ole craft sale became a really wonderful event.

Check out Missy's basket of carrots ...TOOO CUTE!

With the sweets comes the sours.....

So as you all know I entered the design team contest for G45...Sigh! And as you all know I didn't make the team. Now I have to say what I have been saying from the beginning, G45's picks for the team were hands down smart business decisions along with some UBER talented people and I say people because some that were picked are actually TEAMS! K so very huge "hands clapping " Congratulations to you all. Now all that said I received my entries back. This is not good folks because if a person was to EVER feel like their art work wasn't respected IT'S ME! They placed the fairy in the box I sent her in with some of the wrapping that she was sent with . However, they didn't secure her to her base box...therefore allowing her to roll around in the box from Portland to Charleston resulting in her wings being jacked up, she is cracked at the waist and can't hold herself up, and her beaded lantern is completely missing.......WHY? is the question I asked them when I emailed them...they let me know that they packed it "gingerly" Proof is in the murdered fairy that, that is a BIG OLE LIE! Oh and they Thanked me for the information! Seriously???????  I replied with a return email that was more indignant and I have yet to receive a response. UBER terrible show on their part and shame on their ridiculous immaturity of not at least giving an apology without erasing it by shucking responsibility. What the hell is wrong with people?..I feel violated!  Hey, by the way, they stuffed this consolation prize in with my card and layout bending them up as well...did I forget to say Thanks...................You Betcha!
