And here is my take on the Ad. I had so much fun working on this LO. Like I said before...I did my research ;-) but besides that I also played in my paper shreader. Yeah, those things can be used for SO much more than shreading bills. Heck, I think I even have credit card pieces on this LO! Oh, and Mod Podge!!! It's my new love, I don't know how I ever lived without it! Starbucks Iced Vanilla Chai Tea Latte is my proof that true love can be bought!
This month we also have 2 awesome sponsors which means a super prize! The Challenge winner will recieve 10 packs of new Thickers from American Crafts and a 25 pack of Bazzill CS (your choice of colors) from Cardinal Colours. Now that's an awesome Prize!!!
I have good news!!! I just found out that I will be rejoining the amazing Design Team for my second term over at 52 Sketches...52 Weeks!! I just love Julie's sketches and am so very excited to be working with her and along side some awesome ladies again! Thank You Julie!
And here is my take on Sketch #38. These pics were taken on Sept.11, 2009. We were outside playing when Koen picked up a branch that had fallen off the tree. He turned around and said exactly this, "Wook, it Baweees mom!" and he played with that branch for what seemed like hours (ok, only like 20 minutes). It just amazed me how he knew what they were! Koen is a smart little man....he gets that from his momma! ;-)
Oh, and don't forget the prize! Yes....there is always a prize too! This weeks sponsor is the Fabulous Scrap Attack Scrapbooking. They are donating a Kit to the lucky winner this week, so come on over and show us your wonderful creation based on this weeks sketch for your chance at picking up this amazingly awesome prize!!

Hello Beautiful People! It's MOSD time :-) I love this time of the month....when I get to share something that I just love!! I am so excited about this project as it was inspired by my son. I was just looking at him and reminiscing about the days when he truly was a little baby...and man, has he grown!!! So that made me want to create my little one his very own growth chart and MOSD has SO many fabulous products that made this project just come to life!
For this growth chart I used various wonderful MOSD products. For the base of the entire chart I used the Clearly Designed Flipped Out Acrylic Album, using only the inner pages and back cover. I trimmed down the back cover to be the same size as the inner pages so I would have 5 uniform acrylic panels.
I then started to decorate! I used Basic Grey ‘Lime Rickey’ collection because it blended so well with the fabulous MOSD 1-2-3 Intricacy that I used to back a few of my acrylic pages. To adhere the papers to the acrylic I simply used Mod Podge!

Another Wonderful thing I LOVE about Gutter Girlz is the End of the Month Mojo. On Aug.30th Lara posted a wonderful mojo moment using paint...and we all know how I LOVE me some paint! So I took inspiration from her in using paint on my LO, and also used this fabulous technique that Aphra brought to my attention!

The first challenge for the month, which is posted on the 1st, is based off of this menu: (You choose 3 out of the 6)
1. Use an ampersand, dollar sign, or other symbol in your title. 2. Use three shades of green. 3. Use a silver, gold, or brass embellishment. 4. Use a tree. (Even though money doesn't grow on them!) 5. Use stamping as your background. 6. Use book print or an actual page from a book.
Here is my LO based off of the challenge:
I basically created this LO for me! It's to remind me to just take the time to love myself every once in awhile! With life being so hectic, I think we all forget to just stop and think about ourselves...and we need to!! The menu items that I chose to use were: 1. Ampersand 2. Three shades of green 3. Silver embellie 6. Page from book.
I had an absolute blast working with this menu and I am sure you will as well!! Make sure to keep an eye out for my second LO reveal on the 15th at A La Carte! And thank you again Aphra and Frances for the opportunity to be your Guest Designer this month!
