Seven Days

I recently participated in my first swap with my SISters at SISTV...we sent another scrapper a few pictures and then they created a layout for us.
Here's the layout I made with one of the pictures that I received - man I had a hard time with this one! I am so accustomed to scrapping for a girl that doing a boy page made me think!

And here's the page that was made for me...I love it SO much!! You'll recognize those photos from our family shoot by Moki...I think I'm going to frame this and hang it up in the living room.


Have you heard of the Sampler? This is the last box of a three month subscription I ordered...basically it's an awesome box full of product samples for all sorts of indie crafters, some magazines and some promotional goodies. Here's a "sample" of my sampler...buttons. card sets, bookmarks, lip balm, crocheted face scrubbie, earrings, a cool red ring, CD...and that's just the beginning. Check it all out here
Also included in my Sampler was a copy of CRAFT which I already have...so what am I supposed to do?? Have a giveaway, of course:) This is a heavy mag so I'm going to limit it to US and Canadian friends...just leave a comment and on Friday or so I'll pick a winner and mail it off to you!
Remember the tea cup plaque (is that how you spell that?? It makes me think of plaque on my teeth) I made? Miss S painted a tea cup too that day. I drew the outline of the tea cup for her and the rest she did herself. She even custom blended the paint for the background:)


Kitten update: The sweet little kitty is doing better! She made it through the night okay:):) YEAH!!!

That "Sampler" stuff looks great. I've been tempted to sign up for a subscription. I would love your extra mag!
Glad to hear the kitty is doing ok- that did not sound good at all!

I hadn't heard about the Sampler. Looks interesting.

The plaques are cute! And I'm glad to hear the kitten is doing better.

Oh, and please put my name in for the magazine giveaway. :)

I'm so glad to hear the kitty is doing better. I've been so sad for your nephew and what he must be going through. Poor Kid. Argh. Anyhoo... I'm so glad kitty is doing better!

And your brother coming home... OH I'M SO HAPPY!

Wow, what a box!!

I have internet access once again!! We are settling into our new home and the internet finally got hooked up this morning. I have over 1000 blog posts to catch up on... I bet I never get caught up:-)

I love the layouts & the poor kitty, glad to hear she's doing better.

And it looks like I'm just in time for another fun giveaway. I hope your all well. Talk to you soon!!

Both of those scrapbook layouts are adorable!

Miss S is quite the artist, how cute!

I've never heard of the Sampler, but I'll be checking out that link! Thanks! That's some awesome stuff!

How sad about the kitten! I'm a sucker for those cute little balls of fluff. Glad he/she's getting better. :)

Oh, by the way...I'm assuming it's too late for the magazine giveaway but count me in just in case. ;)

Don't want the mag, but do want Miss S to know that I love her tea cup! (love her mama, too!)
