I think I am on page 63 this week. LOL! Or at least I hope I am!

The cardstock I used was a really really dcwv stack for fall paper. Everything was cut on my Gypsy. So those are the sizes I will be referring to.  Little Pilgrim woman was cut at 3.16 x 4.41 Cornacopia at 2.45x3.35 Fruit at 3.05 x 3.35 (I just cut them on white paper and colored them with pens!)  Turkey was 2.10 x 3.35 and I painted the platter with silver paint. Pie was 1.45 x 3.35 More silver paint for the pan and a few dots of red at the top of the pie because thats the yummy goodness peaking out. Table was from Camp out 6.75 x 4.06 Background pieces are off just because cards 2.87 x 4.06 and 3.20 x 4.53  Leaves were from Doodlecharm and the Title was Doodle Type at 1.25"

The other ladies are still going strong and blowing us all away with the following projects:

PDDU 8 Challenge (I guess?) LOL!

Hey all, its time to confuse the heck out of you. You know how we've been plugging away with the PDDU challenge? You know how all the ladies were turning in fantastic and inspiring projects? Well, leave it to me to screw it up! Ugh. I have no idea how it happened. Well I do. But... Anyways... I am back tracking back to PDDU 6 because apparently I missed one. I was using my Gypsy and the two "witches" or "sorcery" type ladies looked the same to me so I thought I'd done it. Go ahead. Look at page 51 and 55 and agree that they are alot alike. Not the extras. But the girls. LOL! So when working on a Gypsy and seeing those teeny icons I didn't catch it. I just thought. Oh, did the girl now I am on to magic man. My bad! Its all my fault. I should have been referring to the book. I just got so excited to have my Gypsy girl back, I jumped a little ahead! :) So please, forgive me while I jump back to catch up. Told you I was going to confuse you! SO here it is. Using accessorie 2 instead of the girl, I made a crystal ball type thing for a zoo invitation. Cut out at 3.5". it was super easy. I just plunked it on some DCWV paper and added stickers to complete. Easy peasy. A little too easy. But if you knew the kind of week I've had, you'd forgive me. I won't bother you with the details. Just know that I am a goon and carry on.

OH!!!! And check on the other ladies to see their scrumptious projects!

Welcome to the magic show layout. It was super fun to create. I even got to use up some old stickers from stickabilities for the tickets etc. I didn't want the magician to wear his hat because I wanted that to set on the table so I used a tiny bit of liquid glass to give his chrome dome some shine. LOL! (Hey, I thought it was funny!) I used my Gypsy to create this layout. Finally got it back and running. Thank you God! I missed it. Not sure how to give you the sizes. the magician says he's 2.82 x 3.94. All the magical elements are from the paper doll dress up cartridge of course. But the table I snagged from the sweet hearts cart and was cut at 2.48x 2.76 . Balloons from lyrical letters. The sandwich for pictures or commentary are from lacy labels. I really hope you enjoy the layout. It was super fun to make. And hopefully you are seeing just how versatile this cartridge is! I should point out that the title "magic show" is a combobulation of fonts that I came across at a sale for $5.00. You know those clear containers with particians for holding floss or fishing stuff? Well, I got TWO of those containers filled with letters of all sorts for $5.00 total. It was a steal! I love it!!! Now, go check the other wonderful ladies I work with and give them some love!

Best Wishes - Bridal Shower

I made it out to the craft room to create this beautiful gown. I even snabbed my cuttlebug and textured it. I used a satin white paper for the the "under" part of the gown and it gives a soft shimmer. Love this one. Just simple and classy I think. Hope everyone is having a great day. God Bless!

Versatile Blogger

Awe... Sandy loves me! What a great feeling to know that people you have never met, can become "friends" over blogs and commentary. We become intwined into each others lives and I am thankful to have met her. I enjoy her blog so much and get such inspiration from her. Not only in her crafting, but how she handles lifes challenges. A true inspiration! You can find her blog here:

I don't think I have 16 blogs that I comment on a daily basis and haven't discovered too many new ones because I haven't been around a whole lot lately. Life is swamping me! So I will forward these to the design team members I am currently working with. Sandy said I didn't have to do 16... Phew! Thank you Sandy!!!
