Grumpy Elf~Creative Craft Challenge Post

Okay...I think I have officially lost my mind! I totally forgot today was Tuesday AGAIN!!! I still need to get The Stamping Boutique challenge up on the challenge blog and I was suppose to have this post up earlier....grrrr. I thought I was having memory issues while I was pregnant....this is getting ridiculous!

So we are heading up to Pa. tomorrow after my wonderful DH get's out of his EMT class and will be spending the holiday with family!!! I am so excited...not so much looking forward to the 9-10 hour drive but it's worth it! We'll be heading back down here to NC on Sunday so my DH and DS can get some sleep for school Monday morning. So it will be a quick...fully filled weekend!!!

Today a new challenge has started over at Creative Craft Challenges and it's a free for all challenge!! How fun and easy is that?! Be sure to head over to the challenge blog and see all the wonderful projects the girls came up with and of course join in the challenge as runs for 2 weeks so lots of time to get a project in and of course you will need some crafty time after you are all nice and full from that wonderful Thanksgiving feast!!!

Breast Cancer Ribbon

Good morning everyone! I hope you all remembered to turn your clocks back an hour! My kids were up at 6:20 this morning....ugh! I hope this means I won't have an issue getting them up tomorrow for school!!!
I hope you are enjoying your DH is laying on the couch snoring away (no...I don't enjoy it) so I'm doing a post then making my way upstairs to do some crafting!!
I have the most beautiful glittery paper EVER and if you know anything about know I love anything that sparkles so this is a blinged out card don't you think? This is a very CAS card for me but it doesn't feel it...I guess because of that fab paper!!!

Happy Fall

Good morning everyone! It's the 1st of Nov. in case you didn't already realize that....I remember being in my teens and being soooo impatient for time to go by and now I sit here and think it's going by wayyyy too fast!
I hope everyone had a great Halloween. It rained here in NC so the kids didn't get to go trick-or-treating. My son was disappointed (until I let him play Wii ;-) ). I'm really glad we went to the Fall Fest his school was having or those costumes would have been a total waste of money!

Well, I have a card to share today (not just my rambling). I've had it done for a bit now and figured I'd better put it up before fall is totally over!!! This card was hard for me because I'm not used to my cards being so CAS but it's okay I guess! I feel like I'm not doing Meljen's image much justice!
