Saturday, November 14, 2009 Blog Hop

I am the guest designer at Everything Scrappn for the month of November. I am so excited to have been picked! It has been so gloomy and rainy here in Georgia as of lately, so these pictures aren't as fantastic as I hoped; but the weather forecast on Wii last night said it will be super sunny today, so I may go and re-do these pictures. I had a ton of fun playing with all these goodies! (Edit: Just re-did the layout picture, much happier now!)

This blog post is part of the Blog Hop Contest. I am just one stop on the way, so make sure you leave me a comment and keep-a-hoppin' for your chance to win. You could end up winning a Basic Grey Indian Summer kit or a set of 3 matching Glimmer Mists. Both very cool prizes indeed!
My favorite scrapbooking company is most definitely Cosmo Cricket! I think I could easily find a way to put it on every page I create! On this thank you card below, I used papers and one of the cardstock stickers from the Early Bird collection. I implore you to check out the all the backs of your Cosmo Cricket papers. That is where you end up finding some of the best background papers!Supplies: Bazzill CS, Cosmo Cricket Early Bird-Ribbon Sandwich PP, Cosmo Cricket Early Bird-Brunch PP, Cosmo Cricket Early Bird Sticker Sheet, Maya Road Classic Scroll Frame Coaster chipboard, Zva Creative Pop Dots, Zva Creative Pearls, Zva Creative Flowers, American Crafts ribbon, Staz-On ink, and Marvy Corner Rounder.

As this next card is a sympathy card, I wanted it to be simple yet still uplifting in mood. The dandelion puff print paper from the Cosmo Cricket Earth Love was completely perfect for what I was going for.Supplies: Prism CS, Cosmo Cricket Earth Love-Remember PP, Making Memories magnetic stamps, Staz-on ink, Paper Salon brad, and Stampin Up ribbon.

I have 2 sons, so I am always happy to find scrapbook papers I can use for them. Cosmo Cricket's The Boyfriend paper line was made just for those special males in your life. Some of these papers make me think back to high school, remember passing notes in class? It was a lot of fun pop-dotting the various elements and easy too! All these papers have a faint outline around the illustrations you can use as a guide for cutting.Supplies: Misc Ohio Company CS, Bazzill CS, Cosmo Cricket The Boyfriend- Study Hall PP, Cosmo Cricket The Boyfriend- Borders, Pink Paislee Fashion Script Alpha Stickers, Zva Creative Pop Dots, Art Warehouse notebook stamp, Staz-on ink, Target spot stamp, SavvyNSassy yellow ric rac ribbon,Marvy corner rounder.

Thanksgiving is coming up! I don't scrap chronologically and sometimes it is hard for me to get in the mood to scrap holidays. I decided to not scrap with the usual orange and brown theme-y stuff and go a bit un-traditional with this page. It re-revved up my mojo switching it up a bit. I love the homey feel from the kraft tan, reds, and blacks.

Journaling reads, "I am so very thankful for you, Momma. I am even more so on every Thanksgiving that comes around. You scour recipe magazines for months in advance to find the perfect dishes to create. You make sure to cook up our old favorites: your famous green bean casserole, lumpy-on-purpose mashed potatoes, and that orange marshmallow dessert that I think only Brian likes. I appreciate your cooking, because I think otherwise it would be me cooking and we'd get food poisoning. It's because of you we are able to celebrate and enjoy Thanksgiving." Supplies: American Crafts & Bazzill CS, Pink Paislee Amber Road- Apple Cider PP, Jenni Bowlin Red/Black- Grandma's Apron PP, Cosmo Cricket Early Bird- The Elements PP, Prima & Sam's Club flowers, American Crafts Thickers, Jenni Bowlin alpha stickers, Everything Scrappn' cooking twill ribbon, Prima rhinestone swirls, Queen & Co. black rhinestones, Zva Creative pop dots, Fiskars border edge punch, Making Memories ruler decorative tape, Paper Salon brad, Staz-on ink, SavvyNSassy black twill-sheer polka dot-polka dot grosgrain ribbons, MISC-heart bead & buttons.
