I recently got to work with the most adorable kit called "Monsters In my Closet" from Jen's House of Scrap. It's full of papers and embellies from Sassafras, Jillibean Soup and American Crafts. Yum! Jen's House of Scrap is a brand new kit club (no monthy requirements). Jen has about 3 kits available together right now and man, lemme tell you, she has a talent for this. I love when I can use a kit and not have to use anything from my own stash. That's how you know they're good...I think.
My youngest daughters 9th Birthday. Aren't those Sass cards cute?
Down For the Count
I have so many great pictures of my 2 year old sleeping. He falls asleep in the strangest ways and oddest places. We always get a giggle to see him fall asleep during the day. On this day he fell asleep flat on the floor with one shoe off.
We have a tradition where I decorate a giant cookie for the kids to share at school on their birthdays. With Sidney's birthday being close to Halloween she usually picks this type of theme.
This is my cutie patoody -boy Parker. Isn't he cute? I played around with a few effects on my printer and love how this turned out.
Go check them out...now! ;)

I want to personally invite each of you to join me at our Pimp My Bra crop over at Serendipity Scrapbooks. The pre crop started a few days a go with just a few challenges posted but the real event starts Friday and runs through Sunday (Oct 16-18). There are going to be tons of great challenges, games and of course prizes.
Check out this bra album made for the crop. I had sooo much fun with this. After creating these, I wouldn't mind designing for Victoria's Secret (or K-mart if you think they look tacky.) These are custom-made and only available at Serendipity Scrapbooks. There are 3 different styles to choose from, this one is the racer back bra. Purchase a bra album and 50% of proceeds are donated to the National Breast Cancer Organization. (They're only $5.99)
Collection used: Bittersweet from Basic Grey
So come on over for fun and a great cause!

Happy Monday scrappy people! I hope you all had a great weekend. Mine was kinda low key, just spending time with family. I REALLY needed a relaxing weekend so it was perfect.
Are you ready for another sketch? This one's a little different but I think it'll inspire you (my hope) to try something a little different.
Here's what the wonderful design team created:
Live Out of your Imagination
Turn On the Charm
Magic All Around
Think you want to try the sketch? Email me your LOs to firstname.lastname@example.org to get a chance at winning that adorable kit from Scrapbook Circle. Please put sketch 34 in the subject line. I can't wait to see 'em!!

I wanted to share with you the projects I created from the October Altered kit from Serendipity Scrapbooks. Unfortunately the full kit is sold out but the mini kit is still available along with this month's Just Enough Please kit.
You can see all that's available here: October Kits
The kit I got to play with was full of the Amber Road line from Pink Paislee and the Carnival line from Scrap Within Reach. Not to mention Glimmer Mist, Stickles, a Tim Hotz mask, a Tim Hotz grungeboard mini album, BG rhinestones and much more. Total yumminess!!
(wooden box and flowers not included)
The Tim Holtz album has so many pages in it that I took a few out and ran them through my Sizzix machine to make my own embellies.
What do ya think? My November kit should arrive to me today, I'm super excited.

Live Your Best Life
