storm after storm after storm *edited*

Ack! The storm woke me up, and I can’t fall back asleep, so I decided to write.

It’s been raining nonstop over here, but I guess I can’t complain considering there are people who have to brave the snow on a daily basis. Anyway, there’s supposed to be a series of storms headed towards California. I don’t mind the rain at all. As a matter of fact, I LOVE it! 🙂 The sound of the rain is actually quite soothing. Maui and Hilo are completely frustrated by it though; they didn’t really get a chance to stick their face out the window on our daily errand run yesterday.

"The rain is not nice; it won't let me stick my head out the window!"

…and because it’s running cats and dogs over here, I finally finished making cards with leftover Hambly products that Memories Live On wanted me to create for their CHA Supershow booth. Oh, the joys of leftover scraps!

…and here’s a layout I made just for fun. I love all the bright and vivid colors on this one!

Oh, and I finally had the chance to draw a random winner for my giveaway last week. If you aren’t the winner this time, no worries! I do giveaways ALL THE TIME, so you’re bound to win sooner or later, right?

…and the winner is Melissa! To claim your prize, please email me at redoaklines[at]gmail[dot]com, and I’ll ship a package filled with tons of scrappy goodness.

Last but not least, remember that sketch I posted not to long ago? This one:

Antonia was so kind enough to share her take on my sketch! Isn’t this stunning?! *nods head*

Feel free to “jack” my sketches. I don’t mind at all. I use them to inspire me when I’m in a scrapbooking rut, so I thought why not share them with everyone else. To see more of them, click here! …and if you do use them, I want to see your work!

Speaking of sketches, head on over to Imaginisce! There’s some fun stuff brewing up over there. 🙂

If you’re going to be in Southern California, Jan 23rd, make sure to hit up the World’s Largest Crop Attempt. It’s going to be fun and filled with a bunch of giveaways! I know that Zutter is hosting a giveaway, and one of my projects will be in their giveaway basket. Yay!

Off to fall back asleep with the sound of the rain.
