Utter Failure again :(

So this is a pity party post for me, just skip over it. I am so bummed today. I tried out for what I think was the THIRD time at Sketch Support and did not make it again :(. I guess it is just not meant to be and I know all the ladies they did choose are so talented; but it still stinks a little for me. Anyways here is one of my entries.

CKCB Blog Hop-last one of 2011! Home Decor

Good morning! Here is to hoping you had a fantastic Thanksgiving and if you braved Black Friday you were safe and successful. Today I am super excited to be participating in the last CKCB blog hop of 2011 with the very talented ScrapTastic design team. Now this is also the end of the era for end of the month CKCB Designer blog hop, we will be starting January 2012 FRESH with a blog hop revealing our kits at the beginning of the month YAY! I think it will be so much fun!

So enough jabbering. You should have reached me from the awesome Michelle Unruh. After you leave me you will jump to the wonderful GLINDA.

Here is what I came up with for our last end of the month end of the year CKCB blog hop! Our challenge this month was Home Decor. This was simply perfect for me since we just settled into our new house this month! I have made these for friends in the past in frames but I wanted a little more dimension for mine.
I used a dollar tree wood plank, stripped it, painted it and embellished it. I even used my Cricut (YAY ME!) What do you think?

I love making home decor for our new house. I love that no one will have exactly the same thing, I can customize it to our colors/theme AND it uses up my stash! How much more could you ask for? What have you made for your home?

I have included the whole list for the blog hop in case you get lost! Click away! Have fun!

CKCB: Fun at Green Meadows 2010

I have been creating I promise! I just have not wanted or remembered to blog, let alone go leave love like I usually do. I am so sorry! I promise to be better after the Holidays. This time of year is busy for everyone and we are no exception, throw in over 75% of our families birthdays between Dec 6-Jan 11 and it is even more so!

These pictures are from last year, our annual trip to Green Meadows farm. We always have a blast! Those little pumpkins are wooden decor from HL, I thought they were cute accents here.

Tag you are it! CKCB Challenge #1

I am Baaacckkk! Counterfeit time!

Good morning! I hope this finds you well in the new season. Did you set your clocks back? I hope you enjoy your extra hour this weekend! Today I am here to share with you my November Counterfeit Challenge Kit-Forever Fall. We copied one of two kits from the awesome Scraptastic Club
I choose to work with the Autumn Splendor kit pictured below.Isn't it filled with yummy goodness? For the papers I tried to keep at the same amount and added an add on of additional pattern paper that I think will work with my fall pictures and/or my Gratitude Journal for this month. Below is my kit affectionately named Forever Fall. I will post close ups of some of the yumminess below that.

Here are my main papers counterfeited from the kit: See I did keep it rather small!
And what is a kit without embellishments to include homemade journal cards, Maya Road chipboard houses, wooden buttons, and TWINE! I also included some Studio Calico stamps that I have not used as of yet. Not pictured is a few cloud dies which I will use to make white felt clouds using my Big Shot. What do you think?

And last but not least my add on of patterned paper. I LOVE fall and buy LOTS of it, almost as much as people that love Christmas. I don't have much in the way of Christmas but ask me for Fall and I got ya covered. So link me up to your kits! I love to spread the comment love!
