Packing up!

You heard me! 
I'm packing up my scrappy stuff and going on a road trip!

Well, not all my scrappy stuff. 
Hard decisions. I like in my house, working in any room I know my stash of ink, paper, and embellies are right down the stairs if I need them. 
I also feel like packing for crops falls in the same magical place as the tomorrows that will be super productive. It's also the time to think I will finally use that 10 year old sheet of paper. 

I've prepared 15ish page kits with a simple sketch of my plans, and a few mini projects. And enough supplies to create multitudes. 

I hope to be immensely creative while I'm away.
But even more so, I am excited about having a total blast with some fantastic ladies!

December Daily, whoa slow down!

*sorry if this posted multiple times!*
I'm not good at this type of book
I like to have my pictures first.
 I've made year in reviews, and sadly, still empty. 

I have a Tim Holtz Christmas mini organizer binder, still empty. 

This is the year I make a December Daily Album AND use it. 

I've said it out loud in blog land. 

Now I have to be accountable to the very few who read my blog.
I'm already biting my nails. 

So far I've cut my pages and put together the basic covers. 

Keep me on my toes people!

CCC September Tags Challenge: #009 Sparkle, Baby

I love glitter.
 Barely a day goes by where my family is not sparkly as they leave the door. 
B doesn't notice. 
Hubby and son however are not as keen about the prospect of stray glitter landing on their eyelids, or any other part of their body/belongings.
Stampin' Up Glittered paper is the way to go. The paper is already glittered, no chance if missing the tube as you return the excess from pouring on.  
Or the ensuing puff cloud of glitter as one flicks the paper. 
Trust me, pre-glittered paper is one way to make the men in your life happy, lol!
For my tag at Catherine and Cathy Create this month I used the Tag A Bag accessory tag, Chalk talk framelits (I LOVE this die set), and hexagon punch. Christmas is coming and I like to be ready early.
I work on Christmas all year long. 

Did you know about the prize this month at
Yeppers, there is one for a lucky challenge entry!
 So head on over, complete one or all of the challenges and link up!

Big Ideas Festival 2013 part 2

Hope you enjoyed yesterday's post about the Big Picture Classes Big Idea Festival mini list book. 
Here are some more peeks. 

Big Ideas Festival 2013

As some of you know I have been playing along with the Big Picture Classes Big Idea Festival. Here's a sneak peek at what we have been doing so far. For me it's mostly about the lists, and fast basic scrapping. I plan on using the pictures in another project, or to inspire the other project.

Job hunting

Well it's time. 
The kids are back in school. 
I need to get a job.
Wish me luck!
