Someone Hold Me Back!

I'm in a scrapping mania! LOL I'm getting so much done I'm scaring myself. LOL I remember a year ago it would have taken me 5 days to finish one layout. Now I'm putting them out as fast as 3 or 4 a day. To me that is a ton of work.

Today I'm teaching a three hour scrapbooking class and hosting a crop as well. I love this group called the Fellowship of Scrapbookers. We have such a blast. We were honored to have Karma from Faith Sisters at our last crop. I saw her creation make the front page of the website. It turned out beautifully.

I may be lessening my odds, but Tim Holtz and Ranger is giving away some of the most awesome products on Tim's blog. Head that way and see what you can win. Also Tim is mini-teaching what you can do with these products. There are some really great ideas!

Check out Graphic 45's Gallery. You might see someone you know!

Now pressing forward: CHATTERBOX!! Did you do your homework? If you did, answering this question should be a breeze. For the Chatterbox Card Kit what is Chatterbox's "trademark?" Post your answer here and I'll chose a winner Friday.

LISA....still waiting on a address so I can send you your RAK!!! If you play here and love to participate in the RAKs. Remember to subscribe to my blog and you will be updated every time I update and you won't miss the good stuff.

I've been using Chatterbox's older lines because I collected their paper for several years and I use it quite bit on my Easter books. But in the Fall I purchased a limited addition designer line from Chatterbox that is so awesome I can't stand it. You'll see a project made from it before my "audition is over." But the feel of this paper ROcKs! If you don't have any Chatterbox paper (1) order it, (2) tell your LSS you need to have it, or (3) hang out here and you might win some.

Here is my Chatter-Creation of the day:

I painted the flowers. The Butterflies come from Creative Imagination and I put foil on this for a shimmery, popped look. I used the Threading Water punch from Fiskars to punch my holes and lace it with an vintage lace. I used Chatterbox's journaling blocks to define the moment.

One thing about Chatterbox paper. When I painted my flowers and stems the paper did not buckle like a lot of other paper I've used. Usually if I add something water based the paper "puckers." I found that Chatterbox's papers do not do that. Wow, what a discovery.

I hope you enjoy. I've been working on a non-layout Chatter-Creation that I'm posting tomorrow. You are going to want to see what I did. By the way, I feel some silliness coming on so stay tuned.
