And yet another Taylor Swift post...

Well, what can I say? It's another Taylor Swift post. This one is scrappy, tho, so you'll forgive me, huh?

My miss priss and I went to see Miss Swift in concert in September... just days before the famed incident with Kanye - yeah - you know the one. The one where we were watching her win an award. Where I told miss priss , Look..let's see if Taylor wins this award..... Oh GOODIE - she won. Let's watch her acceptance'.... then "Uh....oh, no... why did he take her mic? Oh! That wasn't nice...." and I guess me and alot of others were speechless after that. Including Taylor. Well, anyway - back to the CONCERT. I scrapped a couple of photos using Dream Street's "Merry & Bright" collection. Yes, a Christmas Collection, but hey - I think it worked. The chipboard alpha is from Dream Street, and the bird and branch is from Stampin Up! I covered all the chipboard with Doodlebug Bumblebee glitter.

So, now that I've done three blog updates in the past 7 days, I'm forgiven for not keeping it up for the past 2 months? Okay, Okay, I'll try. I'm sure I can dig up some NEW concert photos until I have more scrappy stuff. Have a wonderful and SAFE Halloween weekend. Don't eat too much candy, because, well - you know IT'S FOR THE KIDS!!!

Quick and Easy Halloween Gifts

It's not to late to make some Trick or Treat papercrafts gifts for your child's classmates or teachers. I found a pack of 10 pencils in the dollar section of target. The hardest task was sharpening the pencils! (Yes, I sharpened the pencils b/c the cheaper pencils are soooo hard to sharpen. I wanted the recipients to use them right away!) I used Dream Street papers "Superstition" papers and chipboard, some ribbon, jute and buttons along with a die cut scalloped (via the Cricut) and in no time I had two sweet gifts.

Have a wonderful Monday and check back soon!

Catch Up Time!!

I am here!
I am here!
I am here!

I've been sooo busy at my new job - and on top of that, it seems that EVERY single weekend we've had things scheduled. I am frantically trying to "clear" my weekends from now until next year, but so far I haven't been successful. I'm in between fall fest and family night at the racetrack and instead of (gasp) napping, I'm playing with paper and scissors. I'll update my newest page as soon as I scan it.

Meanwhile... here is what I did a few weeks ago using Dream Street papers.

The first one uses Dream Street's "Nature's Poetry" papers and coordinating chipboard.. a little bing and, of course, buttons!

And, I TOLD you that you'd be seeing alot of my reunion photos in scrapbook pages. I have soooo many. I can't NOT scrap them. This uses Dream Street's "Urban Ink" papers.

I'll have something new up again SOON! I promise. Have a great weekend and thanks for stopping by!
