Nikki Sivils and The Ribbon Carousel Blog Hop!!!!

Hi Everyone!!!!

The Ribbon Carousel Crewmates are teaming up with the talented designers from Nikki Sivils Scrapbooker  to bring you a blog hop jam packed with crafty eye candy and some prizes to sweeten the pot at the end of the rainbow!

Now, lets talk prizes! 

The Ribbon Carousel will be giving away a $25 gift certificate to the Ribbon Carousel Store and Nikki Sivils Scrapbooker will be giving away a scrapbooking kit (winner's choice!)  Enjoy the hop and be sure to leave some blog love along your way to be eligible for the prizes!  Winners will be announced Saturday night at 8:00 PM EST.

I decided for this hop to make blank cards for Brookie's new Kindergarten teacher! We gave them to her on "meet the teacher" night and she loved them! 

When I was done with making my cards, I gathered them in a pile (with envelopes of course! lol!) and used ribbon from The Ribbon Carousel to tie them together!!! I used Nikki's "School is Cool" line for my cards and how perfect is this ribbon for a teacher?!?!?! 

And here are the cards I made for her teacher!!

i.l.u. -- and scrapbooking weekend retreat update ;)

Hi everyone!!

I had an AMAZING time in Payson, Arizona this weekend at the scrappy retreat me and Krista went too!!!! It was so fun!!!! I was there from Friday through Sunday late afternoon and I made 27 layouts, 67 cards and 1 altered project!! 

I did my DT assignments first, then I was looking at my little carry tote that is SUPPOSED to only carry scrappy tools etc... and over the years (Yes, YEARS!!!) I have accumulated so MUCH little embellies in that bag... that I was determined to CLEAN it out by using it ALL!!!!! And I am proud to say that MOST of my projects I listed above were made using the stuff from that little tote bag!! GO ME!!!! :) I only had just a little pile of embellies left over from my bag after the end of the retreat!!  I will be slowly sharing my projects over the next few weeks -- I think you would all have my head on a platter if I shared everything at once! LOL! :)

Also -- I have some VERY exciting news to share!! I have been asked to be a celebrity judge for a manufacturer and it's being FILMED for an upcoming show on their website!! EEEEKKKK!!!! I can't give anymore away right now ... but as soon as I can, I will tell you all!

So tonight we are filming the show -- so again tonight, I won't be around.... but Tuesday, I should be back visiting all of you... I have missed you all!!! :)

 I am up on the Helmar blog today (at 8AM MST) and this week, we are playing along with Momenta! I love their papers and embellies!! For my project, I made two cards using their metal key embellies and using Helmar's 450 Quick Dry! (PS ... i.l.u. stands for I love you -- in case you were wondering! lol!)

Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)

Bless this house....

Hi everyone!!!

I wanted to share some canvasses that I made as gifts for a friend and a cousin... 

The first one was for a housewarming present for a friend that recently moved into a new home :)

I used some DCWV paper that I got from Julie and some other goodies I got from Connie! :)

And the next one I have to share was for Brian's cousin and his wife who is having a baby girl soon!! 

I used some Fancy Pants that I got from :)

I left a spot for them to add a baby photo once she is born :)

Thanks so much for stopping by! I appreciate it! :)
