just a note...

Happy Friday!!!

Today is a good day for many reasons...one is obvious...it is FRIDAY and the other is that the girls and I are getting together to celebrate a birthday...I think I'm going to get a pedi after work {love/hate thing with that since the bottoms of my feet are soooo ticklish}...then we're going to have Indian food....yuuuummm....

Okay, onto some craftiness....I've had this Tim birdcage on my work top for some time now...I cut it out for a different project and it wasn't hittin' me so it's just been kind of hanging out ever since....I've been really using the ole Gmund paper these days...I recently picked up the white variation but haven't ripped into it yet...gotta love those SRM stickers!!!

The glitzed up bird is from Schlosser Design's ...

Have a Tweet Day!

By the way...did you see that Erin is having a Design Team call for Schlosser Designs?

My card was inspired by the EBTKS Sketch Challenge:

Next up...another layout:) I was intrigued by the challenge over at These Are a Few of My Favorite Things....favorite toys. Hey, I play/run with scissors and thought of doing something with a crafty angle but decided to branch out:

Techie in Training

I had a pic of my netbook too but decided to keep it to the 2 pics....I constantly surround myself with my technology...being with a Tech Geek just helps enable all that:)


I'm going to take off my hoarding crown for a smidge...why yes, those are PTI buttons...all the paper is Sassafras {hmm...do you see a trend in that?!}...the tag {thanks Ivy!} is stamped with a Unity image and yes, I journaled..I embellished the tag with a Sassy fabric brad and some more PTI buttons..I do believe that it is the 1st time I've used those Basic Grey alpha stickers...LOL...I have tons of them...I just tend to gravitate towards my thickers..


I was inspired by this layout over at Creative Scrappers:


I've been REALLY enjoying scrapping...it's quite the challenge and I love it! Thanks to all of you for all your encouragement:)
