Bout time!

I did a new post! LOL! I had one heck of a week here between being very very sick and having a few good friends need lots of love and support. To start, I would like to say I am so very sorry for my very dear sweet friend Pryn, who's wonderful mom Sharon passed away this week. Also, my friend Catherine, who lost her grandmother. And lastly, my friend Dwayne, who also lost his grandmother. I love you all and I wish I could give you big hugs and take away the pain you a feeling. So I ask you to pray for comfort for them and their families while they are going through this devastating time.

Yes, it was a rough week. I had to force myself to get crafty. I just couldn't get into the mood while grieving for my friend's losses. I am glad I made myself though because it did help to relieve some of the sadness.

Now for the scrappy part of the post!

I love the scrappy forum I am part of Artistic Paper Crafting They have some really AWESOME challenges...and of course I loves me some good friendships there!! Definitely head over there and check it out...you will NOTTTT be disappointed!! Now for a few samples of the awesome challenges...

Scrap Scavenger Hunt...Jilly bean posted little list of supplies we had to gather from our stash and take pictures of, that was not really a challenge, but it was fun..the challenge was to use 2 things from each photo to create a project!! THAT WAS HARD!!! I didn't have many matching things in my pictures but I luckily made it work...

Cute right? They are my doll babies..I can't get enough of those smiles!

Paint It Kraft Challenge....they always have a Paint It blah blah blah challenge (just means the background of your project has to be whatever color they state) in this case it's KRAFT. Pshhh I LOVES me some kraft paper so of course I jumped this bandwagon!

Is it yummm? I do think so myself lol...I am totally in love with the title and how it came out...I surprise myself sometimes!

What else what else...I think I will hold off on the rest for tomorrow! I need to get back into the sing of blogging after my week long hiatus!

Hope you all are having a wonderful week!! BIG HUGS!!

  3. LOVE them both!i too love the "frosting"title,super yummy :)

  4. Hi Sweet Girl -- It sure has been a hard week. I totally understand and felt much like you!! I know today must have been very hard on our dear friend Pryn and I sure wish there was some way we could have all gone to be with her, but I know in my heart I was with her and will be whenever she needs us!

    I had to force myself to get any crafting done this week and I'm just finally starting to feel good about it. I've also decided that I am taking off the whole Summer and told both of my Design Teams today and I'm taking of LOA and hope in time to come back. I'm going to try and rest and relax all Summer and not put so much pressure on myself. I love to create, but when you 'have to' it's harder and takes some of the joy away!

    Thanks so much for stopping by and always being such a kind and caring friend. You're such a joy!! Love ya and I also LOVE your two new layouts! Your kids are soooo sweet and I just LOVE their cute little faces. You just want to kiss them!! :) I just LOVE the way Emma is hugging her little brother, so sweet!

    Have a good night and I hope to be back to creating more and more each day!!
