I have been creating really.... I have! But working on to many projects at one time and not finishing them! urh!!! Also I'm thinking of doing an event, so my mind is racing with ideas about that! I was in two scrapbook stores a couple of weeks ago and asked if they carried grunge paper or grunge board, one had never heard of it and the other said no one asks for it so she doesn't carry it.. WHAT!!! Seriously...I can't believe it!!! So I'm going to put together a grungy event to show people how to use it! I would like to do it yet before Christmas so everyone can put it on their wish list, I know it is on mine as my stash is getting low!!!! lol
So I have been busy figuring out classes, I'm going to throw in an ideaology project to!! Definitely need to get some products!! Here is a little glimpse of one of the grunge projects in very early stage....

Sorry picture isn't good, the project looks darker then should! Next time!
Have a good one!

Figured I better get my fall pages done then I will need to work on Halloween so I will be free for the Holiday season! Here are a few quick ones that I have gotten done, again my photography of them isn't the greatest need to work on that!

Layout CHA Florida/Tim Holtz

I finished my layout so decided to post it today instead of tomorrow morning. Love using grungeboard & ideaology trinkets!!

Have a good one!


This might get a little long, I had such a great weekend need to post it!
Fri. 10/30/09 met my daughter for lunch around 12:30, after lunch we proceeded to go shopping. We hit JoAnn's, Hobby Lobby, 2 scrapbook stores, Target, Wal-Mart, and a grocery store and made it to her house 1/2 hour away by 5:30. Yes we were power shopping!!!! Nothing like going into scrapbook stores to get your creative juices going!! And when we pulled in her driveway this is what greeted us.....

Her oldest boy Caidin got sick in the middle of the night and still wasn't feeling good Sat. morning, we thought there would be no trick or treating, but by Sat. afternoon he was feeling just fine! Thank goodness! Then when we started getting ready to go trick or treating her youngest son Bridger decided he didn't want to go and wouldn't put on his costume, we finally left with him crying and still no costume on! Finally when he seen all the other kids he cooperated and by the second house he was into it! By the way, he loves candy!!! So after not starting Halloween to good everyone had a great time trick or treating! My first time being able to go with the kids, so for me it was a blast!!

Landi & Chad had a Halloween party to go to later that evening, bring on the peace!!!!!
What a great Halloween!!!!
And I did come home and got the creative juices going! I started a layout with a picture from CHA of Tim Holtz & I, using a lot of grunge and ideaology pieces. I had hoped to have it finished this morning but not happening! I should get it done today and post it tomorrow morning.
Have a good one!
