Fantabulous Friday

Ok, it may not really be a word, but it sums it up for me right now. The house is quiet. Little Man is enjoying a visit from firefighters with a tour of a firetruck at school. Scott and Little Miss are out for a day on the town. And I am getting things done! I have a ton of stuff to put together before the Craft Fair at Little Man's school next saturday, but before I do that I need to hit the post office BECAUSE....I got a card requested for publication in the upcoming Scrapbook Trends special edition Create: Quick and Easy Idea Book! Seriously!! You could not imagine my surprise when I received the email! I am over the moon excited!

Add to that, the fact that I will be staying on for another term at 3 Scrappy Boys and I am one happy camper. We have two new design team members joining the team and 4 alumni returning. I am so thrilled to be continuing on because I love Heather's kits so much. They always have the perfect mix of paper, embellies and special goodies and I use them to the very last scrap--LOVE that! Check out the DT announcement HERE.

Also this week the ScrapTiffany Challenge was to scrap scenery. We haven't traveled in a LONG time, but the scenery right around me is pretty incredible. I am in awe of the clouds in Arizona. I've been to a lot of different places and I've never seen such big, puffy, white clouds on such a blue sky before. Whenever we go out as a family and I am not driving I take the camera and take pictures of the clouds. When I am driving alone I always wish I had the camera to pull over and take some shots. I would love to do a whole series of pictures of clouds. There is something so relaxing and daydreamy about them. Anyway, here is my layout:
The patterned paper is an oldie from American Crafts. I love those clouds so much I bought a stack of this when it was on sale at Michaels. The trim is the new Maya Road large rose trim which I love because it is so easy to cut down to individual flowers or in half for the border and it stays together.
The other goodies like the pinwheels, large cloud sticker and pink scallop border are Echo Park from the Sweet Summertime line. I think I need to get another set of that collection because I use it on EVERYTHING!
 Oh and before I go...I have a couple of dates to share. First, Next Saturday (October 23rd) Just Imagine Crafts is having their first blog hop! All the designers have fun Halloween and Fall projects planned AND each designer will be doing a giveaway in ADDITION to the Just Imagine blog giveaway. So please remember to stop by for your chance to win on my blog :)

Secondly, ScrapTiffany is also having a blog hop the on November 8th and 9th. Lots of seasonal and holiday projects are planned and most of the designers do giveaways--I know I will be doing one :)
And that is enough blathering from me for one day. I will be back to show you some of the cute barrettes I am making for the craft fair. It is so nice to be using up a bunch of supplies I had been hoarding---I KNEW I would need them at some point lol!! Have a great weekend :)
