The first LO is a LO of Luke on his band trip. He had never tried Zots candy before. So in the second picture there is a little shock. The third picture has some great foam in the mouth. This paper was so much fun. I love that the die cuts have chipboard that fit them exactly. Luke loved the LO.
This LO is one that we took to Convention. Sporting some Luxe and Maya Roads chipboard. I loved playing with the Ranger crackle paint on all the chipoard letters and arrows. I used the Ranger misters and the perfect pearls to spray some shimmer on the trees. I can't keep the boys and the dogs out of the trees at my house. It is crazy!
This is another convention LO of my cute little cousin. I used Luxe and pink paislee paper. Maya Road Ribbon, Butterflies, Rubbons and Flowers. I also added glitz bling and some primas. She is just too darling. I was showing here that you don't always have to use card stock to mat your photos.
This cute little house was a class that Annette taught for The Crafty Scrapper at convention. I made one for myself to check out the directions. The directions were right on with great color photos. We used Maya Roads chipboard house with mini album, tree and key as well as felt pieces, ribbons and jotters. We used Pink Paislee paper and Ten Second Studio metal and tools.
The sparkle on the tree was made again with the Ranger Misters. It has to be my favorite tool!
This is a LO I made for a recipe swap at the Crafty Scrapper.
This is a sheer Maya Road album. I used the Cogsmo and Grungeboard to make this funny book about all the questions that Sam has. I called him on the phone to check on him and he bombarded me with questions so I wrote them down and scrapped them.
I played a lot here with some alchol inks. I'm really proud of my little saturn there in the corner. I was going for a spacey kind of feel with the alcohol paints. I'm goint to keep working on it.
This is an ATC that I made for a swap at TCS. Mega fun! We have been having so many swaps at the store.
That reminds me....we are putting together a Girl friend album for all the gals at TCS. This is what I posted on the forum.
The Crafty Scrapper is the best place in the world to scrap and one of the reasons that it is so successfull is because of all the girls and yes guys who come out to laugh, shop and share our experiences.We are going to have an awesome swap that I hope every single person will join. The purpose of the swap is to get to know each other better. Plus...in the end, you will have an album full of pages about All the Crafty Scrappers.

I have to say that I had a blast working the convention. I had the most hectic and fun filled time meeting new people telling them about product and sharing my love for scrapping.
I didn't get there until day two. Here we can see Carolyn still looking quite chipper.
Here are some pictures of the booth. It was gorgeous, filled with eye candy and product. Sherri and Carolyn really out- did themselves on the design.
Here is the bain or our existance. There was a power surge and it took out cash register out. So for two hours while Nolan was out getting a new cash register, we had two calculators. We were counting out change old school. My brain has never worked so hard! Oh and did I mention even with a calculator, the line was wrapped around our booth?
Thank goodness for Ruthie. She stepped right in and helped us. She has a way with a crowd. She was calm cool and collected. Ruthie is my hero!
Once Nolan got back with a new register, he was able to get the old register working as well so we had two registers going!
Here we are at the end of day 2. Still smilin'.
Carolyn decided to work the crop that night....so we did that. Here we are after the crop. Heidi is looking peppy still.
I was really too tired to come up with a new post....so this is the same one I posted on TCS design team blog.
