there is some big stuff going on at scrapbook news and review http://www.scrapbooknewsandreview.com/joomla44/ this week. things culminate with an all day crop on december 13th. you should head on over to the boards and check it out!!
my layout for you today features a couple of very special embellishments. the red and white felt circle (with twine) came from a hallmark gift bag. the santa was cut from a target paper plate! shut up, it's true! so i challenge you to try getting a little crafty and resourceful with embellishments like these.
one person who challenges and inspires me is brooke lein. i have the pleasure of working with her through unity stamps. her blog has FANTASTIC music, great creations, and a ton of ideas. i also enjoy her photos and witty sense of humor. maybe i like her because she is cool like me. :) anyway, treat yourself and head on over to brookie's blog http://brookelien.blogspot.com/ and check it out. it'll make you happy. and, for some reason, if it does not...well then you are just not right!
