Anyway, hope you all had a great weekend and got the chance to participate in some of the crops going on! Nothing really to show off this week. But a couple things to share with you.
SYTYCD competition over at YMBD extended their deadline last week because of some server issues they were having. After Friday, you can go over and vote for your faves in round 2!!
Also, I found this wonderful lady over at YMBD who has a blog that is devoted to finding scrappy RAKs out in blog land! How fun!! Check it out here!! You know what they say, you can't win if you don't play..... the RAKs are given out by manufacturers as well as personal blogs. And also, she draws RAKs on her own blog when she gets a certain amount of followers of her blog, so sign up for that too!!

Well I got 18 cards done this weekend!! Yay me!! I made this cute little card box and put all my cards in. Im going to throw some envelopes in and yes probably stamp them too, and send them to URI where my oldest is in her freshman year. She loves to get packages and now she will have a card for every occasion to mail off to someone when she needs to! I think next time I make one I'll use a thin cardboard instead of cardstock just to get it a little more stability.

Then I started on the first challenge for the birthday bash over at Memories From The Attic which was to use eyelets on your layout. I don't use eyelets very much, but I'm just digging the look of this! I have a ton of shaped eyelets, so I took some flowers and butterflies and went to town. I filled in the frame with different colored small eyelets. What a transformation, it just makes the page!
And as chance would have it, challenge #33 over at Scrap Your Crap, is to use up all the eyelets!!! I'm so proud of myself for digging into those eyelets! I used 39 eyelets in all!
I just started a blog challenge over at Sassy Scrappers and my first challenge was to "go pink" in honor of October being Breast cancer awareness month. Now, anyone who knows me knows I love pink, so I already had quite a bit. But I changed all my text to pink. Pretty cool! I've also added a blinkie to my blog!
Well, time to go do some laundry. It's been piling up all week, and my hubby, who never mentions the laundry, mentioned he had no more work clothes to wear for the week. So guess I've gotta get that going today!
Have a great day! Oh, and I challenge anyone reading my blog to go pink too!! Leave me a comment telling me how your blog "went pink" and at the end of the month I'll pick one and send that person a little RAK!

I have also taken the plunge and entered YMBD's SYTYCS contest!! There's a lot of stiff competition out there, but it looks like a lot of fun. You still have until October 3 to enter, so get over there! If your not a member of their board, when you sign up tell them I referred you, we both will be rewarded!!
Oh before I forget, they just started a monthly sketch contest. I managed to slide mine in right before the deadline. There is now a poll up for voting. The information is all here:

Let see what else?? Oh, Pinky, who one day I aspire to scrap as wonderful as she does, is having a week long crop at Just Scrappin. I've only just recently joined this site, but these girls are a lot of fun, so happy and carefree! There is still plenty of time to get some challenges done!! And Pinky's prizes....well, if you have ever been on her blog, you know the fantastic RAKs she gives away!!
Memories from the Attic is also doing some celebrating this month too! They are have a 1 year birthday party! Jeri and her staff put on some awesome crops, so I'm definitely in on this one too!!
Scrapbook Heaven just finished up their Goodbye Summer Camp crop. Unfortunately, I got sick and wasn't able to complete all the challenges, but it was a lot of fun! Hey who doesn't want to earn a badge??? No winner announced yet, but my money is on a couple of my buddies and they know who they are! They are just wonderful women and great scrappers! Well, any of the girls on that board are great, they are very friendly andhelpful too!
Okay, take one big breath.....trying to think if Im forgetting anything???
