Good Morning!! I have lots of little random things to post about this morning...
1. CMK Guest Designer Layout
Every month Create My Keepsake has a Guest DT challenge. I have always planned on entering, but always run out of month before I run out of things that I have to get done so I never get to it. This month the challenge is using a Creative Prompt. Well, you know that this is right up my alley! And this particular creative prompt, well let's just say that I LOVE IT!! I have looked at it all month long and knew that my time was getting short to get it done so I dropped everything that I have needed to be doing the last two days to play with this layout.
Here is the Creative Prompt:
And this is my layout that it inspired:
*Basic Grey Mellow alpha
*Elsie bitty frames
*Daisy D's fall papers
*Leaf and Circle punch
2. A Domestic Challenge:
As I was blog-hopping this morning, I came across Amber's blog where she was going on about how messy her craft space was. I basically told her that she had no idea what a messy space was and she challenged me to post a photo of mine. Well, here it is as of 45 minutes ago:
Any of you that have been following me for very long know that when Kat was born, I had to cut my scrap room in half to allow for her to move in with me. Well, about a month ago, I was officially moved to the kitchen table (which also happens to be in my living room...UGH!) Luckily, Ben is very patient and hasn't said a word about the carnage that usually resides over on the table now.
The scary thing about this view...my mom is coming into town tomorrow afternoon (which means that it needs to be cleaned...along with the rest of my house) and I still have 5 cards to make before she gets here!?!? Don't worry, mom! I promise there will be no health-code violations by the time you get here.
3. Pumpkin Love
And now to take your mind of the embarrassment that was the last section of this blog post, I will aim to distract you with some cuteness. This was little Miss Kat yesterday playing with our one and only pumpkin. Don't worry, I kept a close eye so she didn't poke her eye out with that honkin' stem.
This is when I wish that I had photoshop and knew how to use actions. This seems like it could be a really awesome photo with a couple of tweeks, but she is still cute regardless.
4. The coming week:
Like I mentioned before, my mom is coming into town and will be here for the next week so I will probably be pretty scarce. I will still be posting the Creative Prompts over on the Creative Prompts blog Mon & Thurs as well as all the links on Monday. Did you see the new prompt yesterday? No, well then go check it out and come play with us! You have until Monday to use either #1 or #2 and get linked up.
