2 weeks...

2 weeks....that's how long it has been since I've crafted....until this morning:)

Between work and vacationing, I was without my crafting therapy for much too long.  I was hoping to join a group of fabbie crafty women at Impress last night, but I was just too beat'ola.  So, this morning I woke up at 5 am and started to get crafty:)


Cosmo Cricket...a slam dunk for me...my first true love...LOL...seriously, there is something about Cosmo Cricket that just keeps me going back for more.  I was going to dive into my all time favorite, Early Bird...but decided to go ultra girlie with Upcycle.  All the paper is from that collection {except the base is PTI kraft}....the pearls are Queen & Co and the alpha is Lily Bee.  I did a bunch of stitching {but of course I did...} with some vintage thread...That ultra chic girl has been fussy cut and mounted on another sheet of Upcycle {and she's on glue dots..} so that she wouldn't fade into the pink...

I was totally inspired by Cosmo Cricket sketch:

 I chuckled at Julie's post about being arrested at a strip club..and thought I'd play along too:

You're at a store crop with your best friends:

Runs with scissors:  Emily Nelson
Spikes the punch:  Savitri Wilder
The "Nazi" Instructor:  Anne Cox
Laughs so hard she snorts:  Michelle Bertuzzi
Glues something to her behind:  Sherry Eckblad
Shares too much personal information:  Ivy Wong
Gets thrown out of the store:  Michele Gross
Kisses scrapper next to her:  Lisa Arana
Slaps the scrapper who kissed her:  Alice Wertz
Wins the prize:  Allison Fillo

LOL...that was fun!!  
{I used just crafty peeps so then had to go under my 'friends' tab to pick for the last 2}

Today is going to be chock full of fun for me...I'm heading out to the Warehouse Crop with Paper Smooches!!!!  I'll take tons 'o pictures and share them with you all...I have a feeling I won't get any projects done...haha...but I need to start cracking on my birthday thank you's....

Ahhhhh....it feels good to be back...I've missed you all tons:)
