I Did It!

I created a set of digital brads. Just a small thing I know, but they are the first items I have created completely on my own without using any CU products. There are 5 in the set and they match a kit I am putting together, ever so slowly.

I'm giving them away as a digital freebie. If you like them you may download them here.

Garage Sale Finds.

I was at a local garage sale yesterday and discovered one of the sellers has a scrapbook store in New Minas. Which is only 45 minutes from me, much better than the hour and 45 minutes it takes to get to the one in Halifax. Even better, the lady had brought part of her store to the garage sale and I was able to get a set of the Doodlebug flocking and their 'Stick with It' adhesive transfers to use with it. Very cool! I can't wait to play.

Ocean Friends Charity Digi Kit

Some of you may remember I was working on some journaling cards for a charity kit for the Shriner's hospital in Chicago. Anne Schlegel of Creative Dreams has finished coordinating the kit and it in now up for sale here. So many designers contributed there is 600 MB of digi goodness in this 2 part kit. The paper pack has over 120 different papers and there are 385 accents and elements in the element pack. All that for only $5 for each pack and all the proceeds go to the Recreational Therapy Department at Shriner's Hospital for Crippled Children in Chicago. Anne even has a free word art to coordinate with the kit up on her blog. Enjoy!

BINGO!! And a RAK!

I have been a bingo addict since my Granny took me to the Ex in Toronto for the first time when I was 4. She didn't really mean to get me hooked, it was just her only chance for a rest from me dragging her everywhere to see everything. LOL

I don't get a lot of opportunities to play anymore aside from the local fair (yes, I've got my kids hooked on it now too) and a school fundraiser. So, whenever I can, I play bingo online at Kindred Creations. It's played a little differently than traditional bingo, but it's still a lot of fun. The winner gets a prize from the hostess for the month and in turn gets to host the next months bingo. Believe it or not, I won July's Bingo today. Now I have to come up with a theme to base the words(100) for next months bingo on. In the past the themes have included scrapbook companies, flowers, birds, summer activities, christmas, holidays, beer, etc. Pretty much anything goes and I haven't a clue what I'm going to pick for next months bingo.

Would you care to help me? Post a theme that I could base a list of 100 words around by Friday, July 25, 8pm AST and I will put all the ideas into a draw for a RAK from my overlarge stash.

I have to eat my words.

I was talking with my sister on Sunday and saying how much I disliked Basic Grey's Euphoria line. I'd only seen the ads in the magazines and as much as I like the colours individually, the line just seemed too much. KWIM

Well, I saw it IRL at the Cutting Garden in Halifax yesterday and it is much nicer than I thought. There aren't any solids in this line, what appear to be solids in the pictures on BG's website actually have subtle patterns on them. I bought 4 of them (arcadia, elation, helio and eden). I also bought 'felicity' which is one of the bigger patterns. The boldest patterns still aren't to my taste, but they were nowhere near as bad as I thought they would be. I guess it just reminds me why I don't like to order online; I need to see things in person to know if I really like it or not.

Journey to the Center of the Earth

Have you had a chance to see this movie yet? It stars Brendan Fraser. We took our son(10) and his friend to see it tonight and I was pleasantly surprised. It was a pretty entertaining movie. Our daughter(8) found it a little scary so I wouldn't recommend it for younger children.

I Can't Believe It!

I won a prize playing Bugzee at Lovebug. I won a gift certificate for the Lovebug store. They usually have a fantastic clearance sale in August, so I think I'll wait and shop then.

I've been busy working on layouts for the Lovebug Bugzee contest. I actually scrapped most of my Canada day pictures already. Now if I could just get caught up on my pile of older pics. LOL Here is one of the layouts I did this week.
