Miscellaneous & Crazy Hair Day

I wanted to let you know that Cosmo Cricket has posted ideas for the QVC TSV that was sold in February. I bought the kit, and unfortunately, I have not had a chance to dig in yet. They have a downloadable PDF file, and they set up a gallery! Cool! If you bought this kit, you'll definitely want to take a look at these links.

Next, let me show you a beautiful card that I received yesterday.


Andrea, from Crafts on a Whim, featured me on her site. She thanked me for wanting to be featured on her site! Andrea, THANK YOU! I've felt like a crafting rock star all week long! This card is just gorgeous! Bella has added sparkle, which is perfect, and I love the striped paper. The felt flower on top of the white flower is just fantastic! Love it!

Then, one of my newest blogging friends, Lesli at Dragonfly Time awarded me with the "You Make My Day" award. Awarded twice in two days . . . I'm thrilled! Thank you Lesli!


Finally, here's my scrapbook page for the day. Once again, I created this page over the weekend during the ScrapCity virtual crop. The virtual crop was so much FUN! This page is a "white space" challenge page. We were challenged to leave a lot of blank space on our page. I've never done this before, and I have to admit, I LOVE the result. The less is more approach to a page is great! The focus is completely on the photos, and I love these photos! This is my oldest on Crazy Hair Day at school. Doesn't she look GREAT? I used Bazzill die cut cardstock on top of navy cardstock. I added buttons, Primas, rhinestones, and I added a title with my snap stamps. I even wrote on the page. I need to add more of my own handwriting to pages. I love the way this page turned out!

I'm so sorry, but I'm still behind on blog hopping, but I'm hoping to catch up with you all later today! Thanks for stopping by!

Hiya Carol!! Just stopping by to say hello - and I REALLY love the layout - that blank space works so well, though so far I'm too much of a scaredy cat to give it a go...
Enjoyed reading your postings and catching up,
Love Helen xx
