more projects from MAA and something fun!

Good Sunday morning! wow, just typing that made me think of my dear Grandma Nami who passed away a little over 3 years ago. Oh how I miss her and wish I could hear her sweet happy voice again. I can still remember it, but I would do anything to hear it live. Someday...

I haven't been feeling well, I have a bad sore throat and just feel sick, but not confined to bed sick, just dragging along sick. Thera Flu is my salvation to make it through the day. I am pretty sure I caught whatever it is I have from the clinic when I went in to have my back checked out the day after Labor Day. EVERYONE in there was sick and I had a feeling I wasn't going to walk away without something. Sure enough, 10 days after exposure it came on. I just hope nobody else catches it. At least they don't have to listen to me talk, because I can't so much. lol!

I have been busy creating. I was truly stumped with the cute little acrylic Jar album I was sent for a DT assignment back in July. The other girls created some gorgeous projects with it and I really didn't want to do something along the same line. The other day I was stressing out and just happened to lay the pieces down in frustration and the way they lay gave me an instant idea. So I rolled with it and after some trial and error it worked! I ended up using an album to create some fun gift card holders! Sometimes I really surprise myself!) I made 3 of them and they didn't take long at all, in fact the drying time of the Glimmer Mist was the longest part of the process.

The layout was created for a fun layout tag challenge on Addicted Scrappers. I used the awesome Frosted Snowflakes Penguin Pants stamp set that you can purchase in the MAA store. I used a glue pad to stamp and then sprinkled fun flock over the wet image and let dry. I then cut the images out and layered them onto the layout.

Last but not least, check this out! I am a finalist for the Purple Onion Designs Creative Team call! I am so surprised to see my name up there with the other girls, but thrilled none the less. My stamps arrived yesterday and once I wrap up a project I am going to dig in and play with them. Wish me luck on the final call please. :)

Oh, one more thing. I am now a Michael's employee. I start sometime soon, pretty much whenever I let them know... more than likely in a week or so. They are going to work me around school hours and weekends which will be perfect. Just a bit of extra cash to help pay the medical bills that are rolling in. Heart problems sure aren't cheap. ;) Yikes!

Have a fabulous week!
