September Color Challenge Kit

I know, I know...it's the end of the month, but I thought I would go ahead and share with ya'll what I came up with for the September Color Challenge at DSO. It's not my usual cram packed extravaganza, but I just ran out of time! There are eight textured papers, two cluster frames, stapled journal strips, a flower cluster, a beaded border, some tied twigs and a ribbon.
Password is: fall (Thanks, Roper!)
Also, I have included versions with and without custom shadows on the clustered items. Is this something that ya'll want?

Freshly Picked

I have had the chance to play with a new kit from LouCee's Creations over at DSO and boy howdy, did I have fun! It's called "Freshly Picked" and as you can see from my two LO's, it's a very versatile kit. I love it when you can get such different looks from the same kit, it really makes your hard earned money go further, KWIM?
The first LO is some photos from Disney (I am slowly but surely wading through the hundreds that I took) and the second page features...ME! See, my Mom loved the foo-foo, too! LOL!

Funky Blue Jeans and a little gift!

I'm feeling really guilty about being such a bad blogger lately, so I have a little gifty for ya'll today. I also managed to start on the September Color Challenge kit, so stay tuned!
About a year ago when Vicki Parker had her CT call, she had everyone use her "Blue Jeans" kit. Well, she has updated it, and decided to put a new spin on things. We were asked to use our original photo and rescrap it. It was so cool to see how everyone's styles have changed!

Vicki has decided to invite everyone to the challenge, so not only can you pick up this cool kit for only $3.00, you get a chance to win some bucks to spend in the store and get the original kit for free!

This is my original LO on the right, and the new one is on the left. I have learned to tone it down a little, LOL!

And here is the QP of my new LO. Password is: new

Pop Shop

Vicki Parker has teamed up with Marie-France to bring ya'll a wonderful gift kit this week. It's called "Pop Shop" and it is just adorable! Here's a preview of Vicki's part, and from her blog you can hop on over to Marie-France's blog to gather up all of the pieces this week. Be sure to leave them some lovin' for their generosity! My LO features a photo I took at Hollywood Studios. Matt was being the usual hambone, but my fave about this photo is the expression on Shawna's face!

Andrea's Bag and Jill's Bag (and a very bad day)

Good Golly Gertie, everything is a mess at the moment. The boss has been out all week and is having an emergency appendectomy as I write this. What this means is that not only am I doing my job (which I am never through with, ya'll have seen pictures of my office) but I am doing his too. Not only that, but today was my birthday and I had planned to take off at noon, get my hair cut, do some shopping and just have some ME time. Needless to say, my plans went down the drain. Don't get me wrong, I'm not complainin', I'm just 'splainin'. This poor man (who is the best employer anyone could ever ask for) called this morning and said "I'm going to try and get to the store this afternoon, there is too much to be done." I have to tell ya'll, he sounded like hammered sh*t and had been in the emergency room from midnight till 3:00 AM. The foreign doctor that was on duty sent him home without doing any blood work or a CT scan, telling him he had a gastro infection. Dang, I'm a nursing school drop out and I know better than that. After much discussion, I convinced him to call Dr. Yummy not his real name, just really descriptive (Greg's college roomie) who told him to be in his office PRONTO! At first Dr. Yummy thought Greg's appendix had burst, but a scan showed different. He scheduled surgery within the hour.
I tell ya'll all of this to explain why this post is SOOO late. Without further ado, I give you some more Bag Week peeks, the first is a LO done with Andrea's Bag of our Chef Mickey dinner gone wrong and the second is of my oldest son Dave decked out in everything possible camo using Jill's Bag and Bunny's Open Spaces templates. Whew! I think I finally have all of the bag week posts done (this one nearly did me in!), remember to get yours before the end of the day FRIDAY!
I have Grandparent's Day at Wyatt's school tomorrow, and Lilly's third birthday party is Sunday at noon, anyone have any suggestions on when I could possibly fit in any quality Vicki casino time?
P.S. Both Elaines (my boo-boo) should have received their gift certificates from DSO, if not please contact me.

MWAH! Vicki

Loucee's Bag and Charlie's Bag

Oh my goodness, I just realized that I need to double or triple up on the bag postings, or I won't get them all done before Bag Week is over.
Here's another LO that I created using Loucee's Bag. Ya'll know me, I love all things beachy! I always take photos of various signs when on vacation. These are from Pensacola.

This LO of Ms. Lilly was done using another part of Charlie's Bag.

MWAH! Vicki

Kim's Bag and a Winner!

Boy howdy, I didn't think I was ever going to get this post done. I've been working on it for two hours. Blogger has been really cranky and didn't want to upload any images. Finally fixed it!

Today I'm going to give you an inside peek at Kim's Grab Bag. But before I get started, the winner of the DSO gift certificate is...Elaine!
Elaine said...
You have been busy, Awesome LO's. Already picked up 2 of the grab bags but after seeing your LO's may have to go back for more. Have a great weekend.

Elaine, I need for you to email me so I can send your gift! txbubbles@gmail.com Now, here's some eye candy from Kim's Bag. I also used Bunny's Open Spaces Templates, they have text on a path built right in for you, and they also force me into making a white space LO!

Big Hugs, Vicki

Ya'll Have Got To Be Kidding Me!

I swear, I have never seen anything so pathetic in my life. I offer a flippin' gift certificate to see if it will generate any feedback and all I get is TWO friggin' comments?!?!?!? Hell, it could have been for a hundred dollars for all ya'll know. I will get out the 'ole mayonaise jar and put BOTH names in it and choose a winner. I just wanna know ONE THING, does anybody even READ my blog? Evidently not, except for these two.

WooHoo!!! Let The Grabbing Begin!

Scrounge under the couch cushions for change, raid the piggy bank, just do whatever it takes to come up with a little cash to spend on your stash. You'll be glad you did, I promise! The 2nd Annual DSO PU Grab Bag Week is under way, and will run through next Friday. All bags are just $3.00 each!!! I will be posting more LO's all next week, so you can get an idea of what's included in the bags, and let me tell ya'll, there are some serious bargains to be had. And before I embark on this monster post, I'm 'gonna let ya'll in on another little surprise. I will be picking a random person from the comments on this post to receive a gift certificate to DSO! Yep, the serious lack of comments has resulted in something I never thought I would resort to, bribery for lovin'. All of the bag previews are linked to make your shopping easy peasy!


Have You Cleared Space On Your Hard Drive?

You're 'gonna need it! The huge sale starts tomorrow! Check back and see my LO's to give you a sneak peek of what's inside each designer's bag. When ya'll see all of the pages I have done, you'll understand why I have been a little scarce around here lately.
