feb 14th tags galore ...

Hello there peeps,

I've finally had a chance to craft and make some lovely valentine tags! Aren'y they just cute? I recently bought the Marvy Uchida (the biggest size they've got) tag punch and had to make some! Really, the tags are adorable and simple to make, I've been secretly stocking Keisha Campbell's blog for inspiration, and well I've tried to emulate her tags, in my own kind of way :)

So, well the news is out and thought I'd share on my blog too, a couple of days (really this was fairly recent and happened really quickly) ago I got an email from a familiar name - Christine Middlecamp, asking me to join Crate Paper .. what?1?1? Was I being punked? I did not see this coming, how could I say no? For the past couple weeks I've been trying to get my hands on Paper Heart collection and little did I know I was being scouted by the very same brand, amazing! So, yes folks, I am now a Crate Paper Girl, have you seen their blog? Lots of amazing ladies, lots o' talent! I am very excited and honored! What a way to start the yr!

Take it easy,
C :)

Hello there peeps,

Back again, first post of the new year, really 2011 had been a very good year for us, although hectic and very busy, we have been granted very wonderful experiences here in the Shadler household (of two). First and foremost Scott and I are in good health, and with that we hope that this yr grants us just that and the opportunity to keep working and prosperity. It is also my hope to make more time to post on my blog, though I don't make much promises, I won't stress about posting all the time but at least enough to keep my creative juices flowing as well as to stay a part of the creative bloggin' world. There are many of you who bring so much inspiration to me and will continue to seek out yer blogs, comment and enjoy the camaraderie that my blog and yours have to offer :)

A page to share today, I had made this a while ago, just never got the chance to share until now, made exclusively with Jenni Bowlin (Nov'11) Papercrafting kit (I checked for you, and it is still available for purchase on her site), very simple yet lots of fun embellishments! It's a pic of me at the trendy Lower Highlands area in the Denver, all the yuppies inhabit it and well, I just made my way to the breakfast eatery :)

Happy New Year's,
Clouds :)
