Burning Questions?

You might be wondering... hmmm, I wonder where Lisa's scrapbook page is for Ella's Pink Elephant challenge? Okay, maybe you weren't! LOL!!! But, just in case... I regret to say that I've stepped down from the Ella's Pink Elephant scrapbook challenge for now. I've got a lot of "projects" coming up and need to make room in my schedule.

I hate to do it because I LOVE that challenge (and LORi and all the girls on the team), especially since it got me going on my scrapbook pages again...but I will try to play along whenever I can. I am definitely getting back into scrapbooking, but it's sort of a process for me and not something I do well under pressure (LOL!). So stay tuned... you'll see some pages from me again, no doubt about it!

You should definitely play, though... LORi's got an awesome sketch for this week's challenge... and check out all the amazing pages created by the ultra talented design team!

You might also be wondering what happened to Taylored Expressions Sketch Challenge. Well, we're just on a little vacation this week... but we'll all be back next Friday with a new sketch!

Don't forget, the special offer on Key Ingredients subscriptions expires tomorrow (Saturday, June 19th)... subscribe for six months and get a free stamp set designed especially by Taylor at the end of the six-month period (or by extending your current subscription for six more months). AWESOME!!!

And, since you didn't ask, guess where I've been for the past two days? CKC - Riverside with my friends Betty Roberts, Alicia Garcia and Kim Yu, that's where!!! Betty, Alicia and I did the preview crop yesterday afternoon, and then a 10-page class last night sponsored by various companies. Then I went back today for the start of the shopping and spent the day with sweet Kim! We shopped shopped shopped and took a 4-page class.

Even though it's a relatively small show (they seem to be shrinking with the economy), we did our part to keep crafting businesses going by spending too much money! Okay, can you really spend TOO much money on craft stuff? Nah!!! We NEED those things!

I scored the new Olivia and Oliver papers from Basic Grey at the embellish it! booth. LOVE LOVE LOVE!!! And there were lots of dollar deals, and so much other stuff, I've actually forgotten what all I bought! I know there are three teeshirts (buy two, get one free!)... one of which says, "Just Shoot Me Now" with a picture of a camera on it, which I think is hilarious, especially since I live with all males...and a funky watch in there somewhere, too! LOL! After I get off this computer, I'm going to immerse myself in the pleasure of opening my packages and drooling all over again... and then try to figure out where to put it all! Oh, and finish all those layouts that I didn't have time to finish in class... which is just about all of them. Fun!

Back soon with more! Love to you all!

I saw that CKC on the schedule and wished I were already in CA. That would have been fun.

You're one busy gal! :) I'd love to go to CKC one day... I don't have very many friends who are into crafting (and are willing to spend some $$) as much as me! Everyone looks at my stuff and says, "Wow, You must have a lot of time!" I say no, I just DON'T SLEEP! *lol* Tell me I'm crazy for applying to 2 more DTs on top of the 4 I'm already on!

I'm crazy, right? *lol*
