Drawing Names and a Quick Project


OK! I had ds#2 draw names from a bowl before he went to school. I figured I actually had enough to give to two scrappers, so he picked two names:


The Real-Roxann
and
Claude (yes - i'll send to Canada!)

and after dividing everything out, saving some for me and another scrapping buddy, I realized I had enough for another drawing and I pulled out:

Noell-hyman

So, email me your address (see side bar) and I'll send these out!

And if I ever hit the flea market again - and see some cool stuff - I'll be sure to RAK the others on the list. It stinks to not have enough for everyone!

Here's one of the more colorful pics from the flea market this summer:



Did you ever want to make something with your supplies, but just weren't in the mood for a page layout? A while ago, I decided to just decorate a photo mat and display it on a plate stand:




All American Crafts. Picture was from my first assignment from a photography course at a local community college. DS was great - allowing me to place him among the pumpkins as I played with my f-stop. :)

Have a creative week! - betsy

Summer into Fall


Can't believe it's officially fall. And I haven't even posted a single summer photo yet!


Here's a favorite from Rhode Island:



How I'd love to have a pink fence with little twinkly white lights and American Flags. Not sure how much the neighbors would love it however!

And I just loved this pink flower reaching for the sky:



Here's a quickie project you can do at the beach. Grab some smooth beach rocks and use rub ons to add words. These would make great paperweights. My neices came to visit us and had a blast making their own and gifts. Making Memories rubon letters worked great.



and yes . . .



it's waterproof!




Have you ever felt like you've been stuck in a rut and just need to try something different? I'm going through this right now and am so excited to take this class:
Art Journaling 101 with Dina Wakley this fall. Check it out! I think it's just what I need to get me out of my rut!

And now for a RAK!
I visited a flea market a few times over the summer. I bought these really cool pink and blue vintage bling things - not sure how to describe them - and I'm too lazy today to take a picture - but I know they'd be perfect for scrapbooking. There are too many for me to possibly use, so if you'd like to get a sample, comment below and leave a link to your blog or leave your email if you don't have a blog. I'll pick a random name Friday morning and flip some out in the mail to you!

Have a great week!
