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! :)
