Virtual TWS Celebration Crop

I participated in my very first virtual crop. Wow, did I have fun or what. Finished all twelve challenges. Won a prize. Life is good.

Found out after the end of the challenges, that the #12 challenge was beyond my mortal understanding. I did my page; but, not according to the recipe furnished. Whoa is me. I'll be making another page for #12 challenge. Even though the time is "up". I want to get it right. I'll be posting a pix of the "right" and "wrong" along with the recipe. Maybe I'm really just seeking some approval????? Gonna go start working on that #12 Challenge. I'll be making a mini album with all the pages of the challenges. It should look pretty cool. I already have many of the pix choosen for the album. TTFN.

Live long & prosper,

Mini Trade Albums

I'll be dropping my GGS (to Jenny P) & TWS (to Mary Mc) Mini Trade Albums in the mail today or tomorrow. I can't wait for next month's mini trades. I hope to be able to take on two trades again. I loved doing two for September.

Life on the Scrap Beach is having a virtual scrap night this evening. Kathryn promises lots of fun challenges. I've never been able to participate in a virtual scrap event; but, tonite's the night. Scrubby and I have a dinner engagement; but, when I return home, I'll be logging on to scrap the night away. (Sleep is way over rated.)

Live long & prosper,

Mini Trade Albums

My Pink Martini Silent Auction Mini and Altered Cigar Box did very well at the Breast Cancer Fund Raiser, woo hoo. There was a lot of bidding activity. I felt very good about how my project was received.
I have completed my September Mini Trade Albums for GGS and TWS. The vids are done and they're ready to mail. Thought I would add the vids to my blog. I make both of these albums as envelope pocket page (a la Marion) albums. I had so much fun with these albums. I'm thinking I need to change up my next mini and move away from the vintage distress look. I seem to do a lot of that. Tata for now.

Live long & prosper,
