scrapbooking, that is! just a matter of days and new CHA releases from melissa frances have arrived as I was finishing up some guest designer work. i'm exhausted but it feels good. I finally feel like the break is over and i'm back to doing what I love (and back to loving it again.)
so i'm going to give some of the credit to my friend, Diana, who asked me to be a guest designer for the kit club she co-owns - Scrap For a Cure. we've known each other since grace was a baby and we were in the moms club together. we became friends, she became friends with my sister-in-law and eventually we were all getting together to scrapbook. Diana was corrupted by the two of us when we started handing her chalk and paint way back when. those days were so much fun. and I am so so proud of her. this is not the usual kit club. they donate a portion of their kit sales to a different charity quarterly. their incredible vision is based entirely on their generosity and need to give back. Diana has inspired me for years in her dedication to the search for a cure to breast cancer. I am truly honored that she asked me to work with their december kit - because it's gorgeous of course - but also because i'm so happy to be a small part of their amazing club.
she put a few of my projects up tonight so I'll share them here (and a few more tomorrow) but please go and check out Scrap For a Cure for yourself!!
and in my scrapping frenzy I've gotten behind on my wishes, so i'm going to cheat a little bit. thanks to miss carolyn peeler and her sweet little goody bags she gives when i've worked the melissa frances booth at CHA, i've discovered quite a few little goodies from bath and body works. lucky for me one just opened at a brand new outdoor mall that I can walk to. so my wish list for b&bw includes several little things that are easy for the husband to get. check them all out at Bath & Body Works.
carolyn gave me the limeade liplicious gloss a few shows back and again last summer (good since grace likes to steal it). i'm a sucker for lipgloss.
some more carolyn-introduced favorites. i got the mentha lip tint at my first show and still wear it almost every day. i have the red and it's getting pretty low, but i've always wanted the pink, too. see, love the lipgloss...miss C gave me the lemon sugarscrub maybe a year ago and it's been gone for a while so when I saw this little kit, I couldn't help but suggest it as a perfect christmas gift.
for a while the rice flower and shea scent wasn't around and it's my absolute favorite. the hand cream I have been using constantly the last month for those winter dry hands.
enough of my b&bw wish list. gotta think of something more fun to wish for tomorrow.
