scrapbooking and my challenge.

I got to spend time creating in my scrap room yesterday, which was definitely a stress reliever. I finished a handful of projects, but I can’t share the majority of them until later. I do, however, have a couple of layouts that I get to post today. Yeehaw! Are you ready to see them!?

First up, I got my hands on some of the latest from Prima! I cut out the pocket, and I placed some notes and photos inside. I thought it would be a great way to store extra photos and journaling onto a page.

What do ya think? Cute, right?!

My second layout was all about using my Cricut. I cut up all of the flowers and the “Make a Wish” title with the Sweet Treats cartridge.ย  Doesn’t it all come together with Imaginisce‘s Birthday Bash line?!ย  …and I even used my irock to add some bling.

On another note, I’m such a dork because I still get excited to see my work in printed publications, hehe. Here are a couple that I wanted to share:

In the September 2010 issue, Scrapbook Trends shared two of my layouts. …so if you get your hands on this copy, make sure to take a peek at my work.

I also have a layout published in the current issue of Scrapbooking and Beyond Magazine. In case you’re wondering, it’s the Fall 2010 issue. There are a ton of other awesome projects in there, so make sure to pick up your copy!

In regards to my personal challenge, the first couple of days trying to adjust to this new lifestyle was tough, but I’m still alive, haha! Besides, in the long run, it’ll be good for my overall health. I’ve been working out everyday and eating healthier, so I’m still on track. *pat on my back for being good* With all of your wonderful support and encouragement, I honestly think I’ll be able to hit my goal on schedule. I’ll keep everyone up to date on my progress or regression.

Are any of you currently challenging yourself? If so, I want to hear all about it.

who’s got junk in the punk?!

Yup. You read that right! Junk in the Punk is the latest Punky Sprouts book, and it will be released at CHA this month. Have you seen what it looks like? If not, here you go:

I actually got to see it in person on Wednesday when I saw Suzy at a crop, and it’s beyond cuteness! Anyway, make sure to look for it in stores real soon. …and in honor of Suzy’s new design for Punky Sprouts, I’m going to be hosting a giveaway this weekend.

Leave a comment to this post. You have until Sunday, July 4th by 11:59 pm! One lucky winner will receive a Punky Sprouts book!

On another note, I finally got a hold of my latest publications. This month, you can find me in the following:

It’s always neat to see your work in print. …and it’s even better when you get to see your cute little furbabies in print. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Lastly, I finished a handful of projects at the crop, but I’m only going to share one of them today. This oneย  features some of the latest papers from Bo Bunny.

I love how my journaling frames the focal point to this layout. It adds a great touch to the overall page. Also, the colors to these papers are so bright and happy; it works well for all of those summery layouts.

…and speaking of summer, I can’t wait for the weekend. It’s gonna be a FUN weekend with the family! For all you Americans, what are you doing for the 4th of July weekend?

magazines (and giveaway #3)

I just wanted to share some magazines that might spark your interest.

1. The current issue of CARDS Magazine is something you are going to want to pick up and browse…

…because I have one of my cards in there. ๐Ÿ™‚

2. I just found out yesterday that one of my layouts is on the cover! Thank you, Scrapbook Inspirations, for picking my layout!

I’m sure you asking, “…so which one is it?” Bottom row. Layout in the middle. Don’t you recognize the two cute Miniature Schnauzers?! Yup, that’s Maui and Hilo!

3. This last magazine doesn’t have any of my projects in it, but Shelly, owner of Punky Sprouts, was really excited about this. She showed me the Creating Keepsakes feature, so I asked her if I could go home and blog about it for her.

Shelly was thrilled about this, so she sent me home with a Punky Sprouts book to give away to one of my lucky readers! To be entered to win one of these cute books, just leave a comment with your “fill in the blank” response.

My favorite song right now is _________________.

You have until Saturday, June 10th by 11:59 pm. …and just like most giveaways I have, your name will be entered into the drawing FIVE MORE times just by sharing the giveaway or posting it somewhere online. Good luck!

Remember that all of these publications are currently for sale right now! There are familiar faces and friends in these issues too (congrats, girls!). Most Borders and Barnes and Nobles have them in stock. Many chain retail craft stores and local scrapbook stores carry them as well. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Happy Wednesday!
