The Scrap It Forward Blog Hop

I have had the incredible good fortune of working with some wonderful ladies for the Scrap It Forward Challenge Blog since March. But, like all good things, it too must come to an end......well, my Guest DT spot, I mean!

So, if you've landed here today, you've landed in the midst of our Farwell Guest DT Blog Hop: Welcome!!! And, if you are already a hopper (blog, that is) from Julie's Blog : Welcome!!

We Scrap It Forward ladies got together for this hop and decided to celebrate the fun, creative time we had together with a giveaway! We each decorated a mini canvas and we're going to give it away to one lucky blog hopper! Here's mine....

So, leave a comment here to win my little creation and then hop on over to Cher's blog and see how she decorated her canvas! (and comment there too for a chance to win!) Then go and leave a comment on the Scrap It Forward Challenge Blog for another chance at a prize.

Our little hop is open until June 30th. So, you have until then to leave a comment....I'll pick a random winner on July 1st!

Good Luck! Happy Hopping! and, as always: Happy Creating!!

Puppy Princesses

Our Miniature Pinschers are little tiny, adorable, lovey, personality packed puppies. In fact, they're not even really puppies. But it's hard to think of anything under five pounds being an adult, they'll always be puppies to us. I created a canvas using Gecko Galz images. I printed out one on transparency paper called coronets and crowns. Then I cut out the crowns for my two princesses. Added some detail with Art Glitter too (love this stuff).

Enjoy and happy creating!!!

Projects, publications and plans

My deepest apologies for being very absent on my blog lately. We're in the midst of relocating and all of that wonderful stuff has me very busy at the moment. You remember all the fun stuff involved in that don't you? Looking, driving, investigating, inspecting, financing, cleaning, organizing, packing, going insane... (well, the lat one is just me). I'm a nester at heart and I hate to be disturbed or have to move ANY of my stuff.

I have created a few items that are featured in Scrapbook News and Review this month. Here are sneak peeks:

I also have a piece featured in the July/August issue of Cloth, Paper, Scissors! My first pub with them, I'm very excited!!

Finally, here's a shadowbox I created using Gecko Galz digital images and ephemera. It's a tribute to my dear husband's grandfather, a true cowboy and the name sake of our boy...Troy.

Summer Time!

I just adore summer! The warm days (and nights!), BBQs, picnics, swimming, you name it! Our family really loves to spend lots of time outdoors. Often that means meal times too. Nothing beats dining under the stars, to the light of summer lanterns.

Want to make you own lanterns? Easy, peasy! Check out the how-to on the Purple Cow Blog!!

Happy Creating!!!!!

New From Zutter!!

Get your Dose of Zutter "Ds" at Summer CHA - Sneak Peek

It's not a vitamin....but Zutter "D's" are the newest little hardware that will be available for wholesale order at Summer CHA and available at retail real soon.

Zutter D's work alongside Hang-it-Alls - or can be used alone - to add yet another enhancement to custom projects, particularly for home decor and multi-dimensional projects. Insert the Zutter D around the loops of the owire in your project and hang from a Hang-it-All, or other hook to display your album, home decor project or anything at all!

Zutter D's won't interfere with the function of the owire, so don't worry about your binding creation. Who knew something so little could be so DDDDDDang cute!

We're very excited about this little addition to the hardware line at Zutter. We want to give something away, but since we don't have the Zutter D's yet, we will give away some "sister" items. How about a pack of each color of Hang-it-Alls to FIVE lucky posters. If you haven't seen these little gems yet, check out the video from Winter CHA Here! Join the giveaway by leaving a comment Here! and we will draw random winners on June 16.

Happy creating!!!
