you rock...

Happy Monday!!!

How was your National Scrapbooking Day Weekend? I managed to pick up a bunch of goodies...more on that in a smidge:)


I wanted to share my Cosmo Cricket'licious-ness Card! For those of you that have been following me for a while, you all know how much I adore Cosmo Cricket..quite frankly, I'd probably mod podge everything in my crafty area with paper from the Early Bird line [IF I wasn't so lazy]...

Anywho's, the 'ole boyfriend was being neglected...as in the Cosmo Cricket Boyfriend line...hahaha..I know, I'm easily amused:)

Well, I'm pretty proud of myself for cranking out a masculine card...those are always tough for me...I love girlie colors and embellies.


I was inspired by ESS #81:

...okay, back to my NSD purchases...I bought a load of 12 x 12's at a place called Scrapbook Hideway. This is the 2nd time I've been there...and no, it isn't in Washington, it is in Missoula, Montana! We drove over there on Friday...6 hours...oy....Darin has an annual golfing tournament over there and while he golfs I book 80 miles over to Missoula and I shop:) Tax free shopping! Thanks to the fabbie Lea Lawson that recommended the shop to me:)

It's a long drive to Montana...I managed to stay up for the entire drive over there...I typically fall asleep:) Lookie what entertained me:

Oh boy, I WISH it were mine BUT close enough, it's Darin's...he bought the Apple iPad 3G version...it is absolutely incredible...good grief, what will they think of next?

Okay, peeps...here's to a great week...come on back tomorrow for the Jacksonbelle Tuesday Challenge!

  5. Way to rock out the boyfriend paper. I am right there with you on Early Bird. Perhaps we could start a petition to have it turned into a fabric line...that would be easier than decoupage :>)

  13. ok, it's *VERY* difficult for us techy types when you place the brand new ipad next to a gorgeous card...not that your fabulous CC "boyfriend" card could not hold its own and get raves no matter *WHAT* it's placed next to...i'm just sayin'... :) :) :) (swoon x2!!!) ♥

  30. Thats cool. I get totally car sick in the car if I read at all. Drives me crazy. I wish I could drive and read. It'd be neat on a plane too though. Doesn't bother me then.

  34. Now that iPad might just be on my wish list! Annoying how much it's gonna cost when they are sold in the UK (far MORE than what is sold in the US)! Luv your rock card!
