Hi!
Use baker's twine to make a border.
It's a good idea!
Especially if its in the color of strawberry slush.

Pretty Little Packages | Fancy Friday Blog Hop

It's here's whether you like it or not.
Christmas.
And I got my jingle bells on... Elf on the Shelf pinterest boards ready to Gee 2 the Oh. (That's 'go' in human speak) I got my solar christmas lights ordered and I dream of Starbucks red cups... although something tells me those Tim Hortons cups may be outstanding this year... they better be red or this will be the year I complain.


Sometimes my kid doesn't like to listen.
That's right.
I said it OUT loud.
But my "model" did squeak out these three photos for me to give you a sneak peek of why Mingle Everything is the best stamp ever.
Hmmm.  
You ain't gotta do a th-ang, chicken wh-ang.
This stamp does all the work.
Its simply lovely.



Ta-Da!
Right.
I might "hire" her again.
I mean, one gummy worm per photo is worth it, right?
Even if it is 8am?
(She also had to promise me that she wouldn't tell daycare that she had gummy worms for 'post breakfast'**... even though Alice in Wonderland says its "perfectly normal")

 This is the shizzle I was dealing with this morning...
(but I loved every moment... only now... not then..)
Wait. 
I am a perfectly good mother.  I loved every minute.
Mothers never lie.

WINNER OF NOVEMBER HOP:
MARTHA
My apologies for the delay - I travelled to space and lost of concept of time. Right? 
Martha - email me at inthecatcave@hotmail.com to get your prize! 
You have until November 27th!

Hop along to see what's next!
Here's Cindy!

Cheers!

November 2014 Its a Sketchy Challenge with CS Magazine

Sometimes I just scrap the picture and other times I find inspiration in different ways. It could be the product I am using. The story I am telling or a picture of a cake.
It could also be a sketch.

Here's this month's sketch and where my inspiration came from.
 
I was at a scrapbook retreat all weekend and used lots of different product and mediums.  I really started to get in the mood to put as many elements from one package... in an effort to "bash my stash".  I had a blast!


I played with the Prima color shine... lots of mica in there!

Lots of stitching all over this layout!

Make sure you play along!

CCC November Challenge: Thankful for Fall

Wow, I have clearly lost my mind!

I forgot to post my CCC November monthly challenge!   I think I'll be OK but Christmas is around the corner... so no promises! (I like being a little frazzled and unreliable. )

So, this box was created in two pieces.  I used the SU gift box punch board and I cut off the lid for a 3"x3"x3" gift box.  Then I cut a 3x4" strip of matching paper and I die cut the pumpkin in the centre.  I scored the lid making a 3x3 square. I then adhered the lid to the box and stuck a window sheet to seal the box.

Your turn! You have until the end of month to play along with this month's challenge!
