insomnia (and imaginisce giveaway)!

It’s true. Insomnia can be a good thing when you get stuff done. In my last post, I mentioned that I was planning on staying up super late to work on a mini album for a future class I’m teaching. Well, I finished it early this morning.

Check out this Punky Sprouts book with some of the latest from Bo Bunny:

If you are in the area and interested in taking this class, it will be taught at Memories Live On some time in August. Once I find out the details on date and time, I will surely let everyone know here. Everything to make this book is included in the class fee.

For those of you not in the area that want the class kit with detailed pictures and instructions on how to make the book, please contact me at I would be more than happy to save a kit just for you.

Also, I worked on some projects for July’s My Paper Tree House kit. This month is loaded with tons of yummy products. …and because the reveal is right around the corner, I thought I’d share a quick peek into one of the layouts I finished.

Can you guess what some of the pieces are in this kit?! Last month’s kits were all sold out, so make sure to reserve your July kit as soon as possible. πŸ˜‰

It’s going to be a busy weekend, so I might not be able to post from our hotel. …but no worries because I want to take all of you with me to the happiest place on Earth! How?! Well, I thought I would celebrate here with all of you. ((I truly hope that you find my blog to be one of the happiest places online, hehe.)) How about an Imaginisce giveaway?!

If you want that paper pack from Imaginisce, here’s how to play:

1. Leave a comment to this post telling me what you think of my work and/or what you think of my blog.

2. You have until Friday, July 16th, by 11:59 pm to enter.

3. Share this giveaway somewhere else online (blog, facebook, twitter, forums, etc.) for an extra chance at winning the prize.

4. For another chance at winning, subscribe to my blog via email; this can be found on the left sidebar.

Good luck to all who play. …and now, I’m off to have another stay-up-late/insomnia nights. Yup, I still need to pack! Yikes!
