I haven't posted for a bit. I've been busy, but mostly I've been trying to find time to relax and regenerate. I had a beautiful day yesterday doing just that. Mom went home yesterday. She plans on being back around the 20th. She needed to take care of everyday household business. Mom's been a hoot to have around, although I only have a few weeks to drop the weight before she comes back to cook again. Yikes!!!
So on with what is going on in the SCRAPPY WORLD I live in and Debby's Dare.
I want to share with you some layouts I did with my unKits.
unkit featuring Heidi Grace papers
unKit featuring Deb Wisker guest unKitter for July. She choose an unKit featuring Bo Bunny.
unKit has released their October unKit featuring guest unKitter Noel Hyman. You have to check this one out. It is too too cool.
unKit's teaching broadcast is Monday night at 9:30 EST. Come early to get a seat. LOL
Studio 490, Wendy Vecchi and Breast Cancer Awareness Challenge
I participated in three Wendy Vecchi, Studio 490, classes a week ago. I wanted to share one of the projects I did. It is so awesome. Wendy's first class was the basics of distressing ink and many techniques. The second class we used our distressing inks, grungeboard and Maya Road to create a beautiful Christmas hanging piece. Lastly, Wendy handed us all the supplies for a fragment journal, showed us a few techniques and then allowed (better yet told us) to create our own Fragment Journal. If you get the opportunity to go to her classes, take them all! If you live in the South Carolina area she will be at the Scrapbooking and Stamping Station (Columbia) in March! I'm doing the happy dance. I've already signed up. Deadline for participating in the Susan G. Koman Challenge is this Friday. Go to this POST to see the details. I will be announcing the winner of the Wendy Vecchi art canvas (it is even more beautiful in person) sometime on Friday. Actually, everyone who gives either through the link on the the challenge post, or gave through other means to the cause of eradicating breast cancer can post with their story to enter this challenge.

Stacy along with Ali Edwards, Stephanie Hamen, May Flaum and many others have taken up the challenge of creating a mini, mini, mini book about a normal week in your life. Check out Stacy and Ali's blog for more information.
SO the BIG Dare for the next week is for you to create your own tiny..week in your life album. It seems simple (I'm starting mine today). Post your mini-album on your blog, an online gallery, or send me an email and I'll post it here. Leave a comment with your link. I'll randomly choose a winner of my special RAK. The brand new, just released Fiskars Swivel knife! Yahoo Hoo. I've been playing with mine and I love it. I am able to even cut the white centers out of words on a sticker to give it a better look. I'm in love and I want to share it with you.
Have fun scrapping!
