Multi-Posts! 52 Sketches Reveal, Dotty Divas Reveal, MOSD Reveal

SO, I am a little behind with a few of these posts...sorry about that! Sometimes life just comes at you unexpectedly and you just have to go with it in hopes that you can catch up in the long run! The entire family has been sick, and when I say sick I mean really SICK!! We came down with the H1N1 virus and it decided to stick around for a few weeks and kick our little behinds into submission! But we are all over that now and back to feeling like the rotten little Ox's we typically are :-) Thanks to all or friends and family for the love and support you have given us over these last few weeks. It has truly meant the world to us!

With being behind I have neglected my blog a bit. I have a few posts that I would like to share with you now! Be warned: There will be a lot of pictures in this post!

First is my MOSD project for Oct. Build a Book Boo House This project just makes me happy in so many ways! I started off on a mission to build a Spook house and it didn't really turn out spooky, so we just call it a Boo house instead! I have noticed I always lean more towards the cute side of Halloween and that's just fine with me! Who needs spooky! To see all the images of my Boo House please click on the link above! And while your there make sure to check out all the amazing product that MOSD has to offer!!

Next up I have the new Dotty Divas Ad Challenge. The challenge this month is wonderful! I loved it to pieces. There was just so much room for personal interpretation. Check it out:

And here is my take on the Advert:

For some reason I just had that Cinderella song in my head the entire time I was working on this LO. I know it looks nothing like a Fairy Tale LO, but it's my Fairy Tale, and he's my prince :-) lol, Seriously, that's where the title came from. It's a rather simple LO for me, I just didn't think it needed much else!

Come on over to the Dotty Divas blog and show us your take on this Ad and be entered for a chance to win this months AMAZING prize! Also I would like to welcome to the Dotty Divas Design Team, Kristin. We are on the JuJu Bees DT together and this girl is amazing, and I just know she is going to be a wonderful addition to the Dotty Divas! So excited to have you join us Kristin!

So, it's Sunday...and wonderful things happen on Sundays! Julie Bonner of 52 Sketches...52 Weeks releases a new sketch for everyone to drool over! This weeks sketch is no different. It puts a focus on circles, and I am mad crazy about circles! Check out Sketch #43:

And here is my take on this wonderful sketch:

This is my beautiful little sister Carlie. She's such a good spirited person and I wanted this LO to show that! I played around with how I created the circle a bit, I used Martha Stewart twine and wrapped it around buttons to create the circle. I think it looks playful and fun!
Come on over to 52 Sketches...52 Weeks and show us your take on this weeks sketch for a chance at an amazing prize sponsored by Work in Progress Kits! Hope to see you there!

52 Sketches...52 Weeks - Reveal #42

It's that time again! Time for another fabulous sketch from the wonderful Julie Bonner of 52 Sketches...52 Weeks! I had SO much fun working with this sketch, I think it was because of the subject I based the LO around. My entire heart was in it. I had an idea and I just went with it! And I know it's a simple LO, not much detail to it, but I love it SO so much.

Here is sketch #42

And here is my take on the sketch:

This is my DS Koen. He truly is the man of my life right now. With his daddy being gone I think I take extra pride in all the little things he does and feel the need to document these things for Dad to see when he returns home. Anywho, Koen has become facinated by dandelions. Everytime he see's one we have to pick it so that he can blow off all the 'wishers'. I started this entire LO with the concept of making that huge dandelion as the focal point...and I love how it turned out!

Make sure to stop on over at 52 Sketches...52 Weeks and show us your take on this weeks sketch! As always there is a wonderful prize up for grabs! This week A Million Memories is sponsoring the winner - how cool is that?! A wonderful Sketch, An awesome prize....Hope to see you there!

OCT FULL Reveal for JuJu Bee's

This month over at JuJu Bee's we have been doing a little less buzzing and a lot more BOOing! Why? You may ask. It's because we have all been so inspired by the wonderful Oct Kit. Julia has packed this kit full of the latest Halloween product available and it's just a beautiful combination! There is so much in this kit that it barely fit into one picture! For more detailed pics of the product in the kit please look here!

This is definately a Kit you don't want to miss out on! Julia still has a few available if you act fast!! Here is what I have created so far using the Oct kit. Seriously, there was so much in there that I am still creating things :-)

Kayla loves Enemy Pie

I have a little bragging to do today and it's not Scrapbook related - it's daughter related! Kayla had asked me to look up one of her new favorite authors, Derek Munson, online and I just got around to doing it today (I know bad mom). I just happened to run across his blog and I found a post he had recently made about his visit to my daughters school. To my suprise he had posted the card Kayla had made for him and few words about her. It literally brought tears to my eyes because I know how excited she was to meet this man and how very hard she worked creating him that card. She has even put his book Enemy Pie on her Christmas list. I know a bit odd, but Kayla always asks for books as opposed to toys. She's one smart little cookie, my Kayla.

To check out the post he made please go here and leave some love :-)
