Has it really been more than a month already?!

For Heaven's Sake! I do NOT know where the time goes!

It literally passes me by 10 times faster than I have ever remembered it in the past! I am sure of it! :P Well I do have some things to show you today! :D Yay for that huh?!! And a couple things to share because it has been a pretty incredible month for me!! :D

This first LO is a new one for The Scrapbook Nook! And I was just told the other day that tons more of their fabulous June kit has been ordered!!! Love love love this kit!!! On this LO I decided to keep the journaling tag blank for the photo, because the journaling is personal. It is a message to my sister. She lives pretty far away from me, and I miss her a lot.
Supplies:
Paper-Cosmo Cricket, Bazzill
Journaling tags-Cosmo Cricket, Jenni Bowlin
Chipboard-Cosmo Cricket
Butterflies-Chatterbox, Martha Stewart punch in Cosmo Cricket paper and the Bazzill cardstock
Letter stickers-American Crafts
Pin-Maya Road

Next up is the new category at Category Stories!!!! It is Shop til you Drop!! Fun, no?!!! I am not a huge shopper (although my husband and my closet I think would disagree!), but I still found something so fabulous to scrap about with this prompt! Who doesn't window shop in Anthropologie?! And what woman doesn't have a wish list to there?! That is exactly what I decided to do! A list of all the lovely things I would love to be able to own from Anthropologie! :D And for this little mini album, I decided to try a messy, no hassle, just stick the stuff on approach to scrapping! It kinda came out a bit Kara Haupt-ish, but I had so much fun trying out a new style! I love doing that because it makes it always seem fresh! This entire book was made with my Studio Calico May kit.

And in case you were wondering what you were playing for......Prima is our sponsor this month!!!!! This prize is full of wonderful stuff from fabulous papers to flowers to Viola to pearls!!

Speaking of Prima, I have a LO to put up on my blog! It was on the Prima blog at the beginning of the month, so I am a little late getting it up on here but better late than never! :P




Everything on this LO is Prima (except for the vintage trims, bookprint butterflies and pins).

I have to share a little thing that was announced a little bit ago but this is the first opportunity I have had to type it up and put it on my blog! I participated in the Just Bee Me mini album contest at Lily Bee and won 2nd Place!!!! I was in complete shock when I found out!!! It was a great contest and I am so happy that I decided to go for it because I really love how it turned out. I put some very heart felt free-handed journaling in there and will have that to look back on always! :D Thanks again so much to Lily Bee for the awesome contest and fab prize!!

Supply List: I am going to have to come in and edit this tomorrow or something because I do not have the list in front of me and it is quite long! So I will be back to provide this! :D

Next up, I had a huge shock when I found out that two of my LOs were put up on the Cosmo Cricket blog!!!! Can't even tell you how incredible an honor that was!!! And some of the talent that I had the opportunity to share that post with: WOW!! I am still in shock! :D

These two LOs are the ones they featured:


And last but certainly not least, I had an even bigger total shock!!! (If you can imagine such a thing!) I am on the Sassafras Lass Blog and I am also their Friday Freebie winner!!!! AHHHHHHH! I am over the moon! I can't even begin to tell you how many circles I ran through the house!! I never in a million years thought I would be one of their winners! :P

These are the little things they put up! :

a few little cards:

this one is the inside of the previous



And this project they didn't put the whole thing up of but that is ok! I can expand upon the project here! This is a little hanging picture holder! I got the idea from Maggie Holmes (a project she did for the Making Memories book Baby Love) and then just expanded on it. The top of the project has a protective sheet on the front of it that is stitched into 12 sections, and then a small slit is cut at the top of each section to allow a small picture to slide into. I covered both the front and back of the protective sheet with cut flowers and things from the papers. The bottom of the whole thing I turned into a forest floor with the deer walking through. :D It was really a project that I had a lot of fun making and am intending on doing again real soon! ;D

a close up of the top portion:

and a close up of the lower portion:

And also they featured this little LO: it is probably one of my fav LOs that I have done. :D



Ok well if you made it this far then Holy Cow I owe you a huge Thank You!!! Hehe! This was a very long post and a super duper picture heavy one too! But if you are still reading then you are one of the ones that will know in advance that I am going to be doing my first ever blog giveaway this week!!!!! Yeah I know! I am just as excited about it! I can't believe that I haven't done one before now! I still don't have the RAK all made and together so we are both in suspense as to what I will be giving away but I will be making it good for sure! I will have the post up on Thursday so check back then! :D Hope everyone is well! Take care!
