Scrapbook cafe' saturday challenge!

Good Sunday bloggers,

Hope everyone is having a wonderful day! Yesterday the tropical storm Hanna came to town, leaving some high winds and a little bit of rain. I was thinking we needed a bit more, but it seems she went the grass and plants so, that is good.

Today after having the kids clean up there messy room and doing the laundry I was able to blurf a bit. I knew I had to sit down and do this weeks challenge for the scrapbook cafe'. It was to do a framed card. I used nesttabilities, stamps from SU, and a cuttlebug embossing folder to add some texture. What do you think? Did I do okay? I colored the image with ink & a water pen. I love this technique for giving a softer look. If you would like to check out the challenge you can see it on Pat's blog, southern breezes.

On to some good news. Pat,is opening a store you all know that, and I am happy to be one of her teachers! Okay, I am more than happy I am overjoyed!! I am so happy to work with/for her, she is a doll, and I wish her the best of luck. I'll let you know when that blog is open and running!

I am also the guest designer for November for the scrapbook cafe'. This is my first time having such an honor and I was freaking out! I was bouncing off the walls. My husband was so excited for me and It's nice to be able to show him I did something with all the stuff taking over our bedroom!!

The first week of school was smooth. The boys are all back into the swing of things. Kenny, is loving his senior year at the technical school, and has reunited with a lot of old friends. I feel good about our choice of putting him at this school full time. I pray to God, he does well.!

That is for now. See you tomorrow!!

Hi Dawn! I haven't been on your blog in months and months. Thought I would check in and see how you are doing.

This card is adorable! I love your use of the nestabilites. I just ordered my first set last week. Can't wait to get them. I have also been accumulating a lot of cuttlebug embossing folders.

Congrats on not only getting a job teaching stamping but also being a guest designer! Just don't let it all go to your head lol!

I finally gave in and started my own blog just last week. You can link to my name if you want to check it out.
