Fantastic Friday!

Did this week go by super quickly for anyone else? Of course, the whole MONTH that I haven't blogged went by pretty quickly, lol. I kept meaning to post, and then work was super busy, and I don't blog at home usually, etc etc, excuses excuses. I know.

So you know who has the best professional use grab bags on the block right? Of course you do! KimB! Her latest is over at DSO RIGHT NOW, but it's only up until saturday (sunday if you're really lucky) and then all 5 products go into stores regularly priced. At $8 it's a STEAL! So go snag it!

Kim's been giving you sneak peaks all week, so at this point it's not much of a surprise, lol! But I decided to cook up something fun and make a mini kit for all you KimB faithful out there! Everything was created using her grab bag stuff (and a few older professional use things here and there) AND it coordinates with her march color challenge palette! So you can add this one to the huge list of kits you can scoop up this month when you play along over at DSO!

Here ya go! I hope you enjoy it!

In other news, TOOT TOOT!! I was asked to be on Julie Billingsley's (a brand new designer over @ SSD, she was a Sugar Babe first!) Creative Team!! I'm so excited, she has really amazing talent and I'm so excited to showcase her stuff!

I've got a SUPER cute project in the works for this weekend for Traci's Team Blog on monday. Really simple, but hopefully really useful too! She's released some really awesome kits this year, I so look forward to seeing what else she's got under her sleeves! And have you checked out the Hawt Mama Blog?? The girls come up with some really awesome challenges! Definitely gets the scrappin mojo flowin!

In other wonderful news, my good friend Krissie has ventured into the wonderful world of crafting, and gotten totally obsessed as well! She's opened up a jewelry shop over on Etsy, and it's damn good stuff, if I do say so myself! LOL! Look at this amazing neckalce and earring set she made me! For only $25! It's another STEAL I tell you!

Click on the picture to go to the sold item page and see more pictures of my set. Hopefully I snap some pics of myself wearing them and can show them off that way too. It's a really stunning set, I've worn it several times already and always get compliments on it. If you like what you see, send her a message on Etsy (or leave me a comment and I'll get you in touch with her). She will work with you to create a custom piece, or alter a current piece. Anything you like! She's eager to please and she just LOVES what she's doing. So please, go check her out, I'd really appreciate it!

Aside from being super busy at work, and scrapping all the time, and sewing pillow cases and window curtains, and working on baby books for baby shower presents for friends, there's nothing much new going on over here :oP But since I've been busy, I'll leave you all with a few LO's (as always, click to see the credits!).

This I made using Kim's kit from last month, Storybook Romance. SO pretty, I just love it. The pictures are or and from JEssica and David's wedding that we went to down in Disney.

This one I made for one of the challenges for The Amazing Digi-Scrap Race (ADSR). I'm racing with my friend and co-CT member Jenny, who lives out in Colorado. Check out our blinkie over on the side there! I used one of Traci's latest kits, "Paging Miss Bettie". SO friggen awesome. It was an instant favorite.

This one I love. Mikkel Paige (who I am CT-ing for this month as well) has the greatest neutrals paperpack EVER. I find myself going for it all the time. Plus, we finally heard from a friend who is over in Afghanistan. So the timing was kind of sentimental and special. The red, black, and white combo just SCREAMS, NYC to me. :o)

And one last one, cuz it's just too dang cute. From all those 878 pictures I had scanned by Scanmyphotos.com (review post coming soon, 2 thumbs WAY up!!), and Dani Mogstad put out the CUTEST Easter kit ever, Bunny Trail. Me, in my easter bonnet, with my Dad. Circa 1984. :o)

I think that's all for now. Hopefully it won't take me another month to update this thing! LOL! Have a wonderful, wonderful weekend everyone! I hope it warms up soon, I'm so tired of this winter weather nonsense! I want 40's and 50's and SPRING dangit!!
