Adding to the family...again!

And NO! I'm not pregnant...THANK GOD! LOL! We just became the owners of a 4.5 month old Cane Corso pup...but she's as big as Izzy! For those that don't know, Cane Corso's are Italian Mastiffs! She's black with just a touch of brindle in her coat. She's very laid back and calm...compared to Izzy who's like a "rat on acid" to quote my husband! LOL! I've got a few pics of her, but you can't really see her coloring well with me using the flash indoors. I'll take some more pics of her tomorrow outside and post them here.

Time for a new challenge!!!


Today's challenge is to go GREEN!!! We want you to recycle something to use on your page...scrappy packaging is a great thing to reuse on a page, but you can recycle anything! We also want to SEE the color Green on your page! Here's my example!

I used the packaging from the Prima Stars and the ribbon I wrapped around the stems of the stars is a teal and green stripe!

We also have an AWESOME Guest Designer this week...Say Hello to Karen B!!! Check out her amazing page on the blog!

And we are excited that Paper Trunk is our sponsor...look at this great prize they are offering!!!

So join us this week and show us what you got!!!!

Stuff I've been working on!

Remember I told you that Scrap-Friendzy was having ScrapU this month??? Well, the first challenge by Ms. Amy was to make your own sheet music, tea stain it, and use a song title or lyrics on your page...well, here's what I came up with!

I used the song "In my Life" by the Beatles. I tea stained some watercolor paper before running it thru my printer and printing the blank sheet music. Then, I drew in the music notes! This was sooooo much fun! You can still play...this assignment isn't due until Sunday, September 5!

The 2nd challenge...posted by your's truly...was an After School Activity. My activity was Football and I challenged you to create texture on your page...taking the texture from the bumpiness of the football (and its lacing!) I showed how to create some cool texture (go check it out!) that is a little out of the box. I'm hoping we start a trend!!! :) Here's that page (one of my new FAV'S!!)

And, I got inspired by an awesome page I found on Using the scraps I pulled out for the previous page, I came up with this!

So there...some eye candy for your holiday weekend! Have a great one and stay safe!
