I just joined a new CJ group and for the remainder of the year we are doing challenge pages instead of a CJ! How fun!!! The first challenge that I get to participate in asks for 2 8x8 pages with a fall theme and an interactive item! When Toni and I were at the ScrapPink event a few weeks ago, I learned how to create a 3x3 mini album using 1 piece of pattern cardstock! Well, I adapted this technique to add to my challenge page! This is what I came up with! I think it turned out really great! The little book on the first page opens up and you can add pictures, journaling or whatever you want. The tags pull out and can also be used as journaling or for pictures! I have to make 6 identical LO's, but I used different pattern paper for each one so that I wouldn't get bored with the project! Yahoo! One down and 5 more to go! My turn to come up with the challenge is in late December - hmmm, what should I do??
I had lunch with Toni yesterday and she brought over this great big box of stamps that she no longer wanted! What fun! Thank you Toni - you're the sweetest!! Melanie quickly snagged up all the one's she wanted - I haven't even see what she took yet! I can't wait to spend more time stamping! It was a nice lunch, too bad I had to keep it short and return back to work. :(
And last but not least - the Rockies rocked the Diamondbacks yesterday beating them 5-1 in the first game of the NL championship! This town is Rockin' - you wouldn't believe how excited people are! Just 3 more games to win and we'll be on to the World Series! Could it really happen?! Game 2 is tonight at 8 pm - we're making pizza and settling in for a long night!
