Use your scraps!!!

I know that this “hobby” of ours is called SCRAPbooking but I always seem to forget to use my scraps (LOL).

These are for the July "Wub Cwub" on the Scrapbook Takeout forum.

Label Tulip a new kit club that launched this week had a contest to win a RAK if you posted a comment on their blog and my name was the lucky one pulled. I am so excited. I know everyone says this but I hardly ever win anything. This must be my lucky week. Here's hoping.

Made it to Challenge #10

Well here we are the finaly of the 10 days of challenges from Caardvarks. I am sorry to see the end but I an also thrilled with how many cards I have done. I think going forth I will challenge myself to do at least one card a day and post it here to my blog. So stay tuned for more cards from me. Here is my entry for today. We had to scrap lift a card from the Club Scrap gallery. the card was done by Jen using the Club Scrap "Fizz" kit.

Supplies: Paper/Cardstock: K & I Memories, Heidi Grace, Bazzill and Bazill Bling; Chipboard: Heidi Swapp (SBTO Kit); Ribbon: American Crafts; Flowers: Prima; Pen: Sakura Souffle.

On a personal note, went to see the new Harry Potter movie today with some friends. It was great. I was going to hold off on getting book seven but now I think I may get it sooner than I had planned to. I want to know how this saga will end. Think I will re-read book six as well.
