Hello hello,

I hope you who read and/or glance my blog are doing well. Not much around this neck o' the woods, it's really just mellow....

A scrap page today brought to you by of course, Jenni Bowlin Sept '11 kit, lots of funky colors, cute embellies and some packaging I decided would go well with my page :) What do you think? So the pic is of me, my very good friend Alejandra (I dunn think she runs by my blog so what she doesn't know won't hurt her, hehe),Kathy and her baby Dario. We were enjoying some delicious ice cream, it was getting chilly but we were happy to be out and about! Simple quick page, not much to it.

Yesterday, scrap pal Savitri and I got on Skype and enjoyed a ~ 2hr vcrop, catching up with each other, gossiping and b**ched about how we have no craft drive lately, really it happens a lot! Especially now, not much crafty mood these days, what's wrong (with me)? Am I tired, do I work too much (hehe) so please bear with me, I'm trying to post often :)

Anyhoot, I hope yer wkend is going well, all supplies can be found by clicking on the pic.

Take it easy,
C :)

Hello there peeps,

A Happy Labor Day to you live here in the US! Not much going on in my neck of the woods, very peaceful actually. A card here today brought to you by Embellish color challenge ... the colors are right up my alley! It took me hours to come up with this card, I know I wanted to work with the layout, but figuring out how to include the Kraft was tricky, seriously, the card looks simple and elegant but it took me a while :S Anyhoot, quick post today, most if not all the paper is by My Mind's Eye - Lost and Found paper.

Let me know what you think, all supplies can be found by clicking on the pic.

Take it easy,
C :)

Hello Hello!!

Hey there peeps, quick post here, but wanted to share my Sept scrap page that I made for WCS Sept Gallery! Have you visited this site lately? There's lots of inspiration and fun giveaways every week! This month the theme for the gallery is books. While I thought that scrapping about my college textbooks woulld be boring, I'd figure I'd let you in on my "guilty pleasure." Idea books are fun, and really work when you needs some inspiration to jump start some creativity! It really works for me, I subscribe to CARDS mag online and when I get published (has been a while now) I get them in hardcopies. Anyhoot, the pic might be off, having limited natural lighting at dawn, I quickly took the pics :)

Take it easy,
