Twisted Tuesday Challenge #68-Give me a T-A-P-E!!!

Hey Everyone!

Another fortnight has passed (!!!!!) and another challenge is up and running over at Twisted Tuesday Challenges!  This week is a super fun one (but then again aren't they all!?).

The Challenge:  Use Washi Tape (or other tape) on your project.
The Twist:  Use something that starts with a "T", "A", "P" or "E" on our project.

Here is my take:

I Used washi tape on the sides and the following:
"T"-tag, tree (in photo)
"P"-pearls, the word "playful"

Be sure to head on over to the Twisted Tuesday Challenges for all the details.  I can't wait to see what you create!

123Get Scrappy-Challenge #6 Up and Running!

Hey Everyone!

Just popping in to let you all know about the new challenge up and running over at 123 Get Scrappy!  New Year, new bingo board for your creative pleasure!  Wahoooo!  It's been a busy holiday...and still looking forward to a winter of snowboarding/skiing with the kidlets and snowy fun...and of course to scrap all about them afterwards!

It's been just over a year since I made the plunge to quit my career in the pharma industry and spend some quality time at home and taking care of my family.  It's been a great year but there are still some gaps in my mind and heart that need filling and I'm hoping 2014 will bring some direction and enlightenment for a future career for me.  That's the inspiration of this photo.  The phrase I got from a photo I saw on the internet.  This quite spoke to me on so many levels.

blue star: Coluzzel; star die:Quickutz/Lifestyle Crafts; "camera" letters:LiliB Designs; stamps: Autumn Leaves, Websters Pages, Recollections; ink: Distress Inks, cork banner: LYB

I was feeling the winter vibe today and loving the view of all the snow out our back window.  This inspired me with the blues and splatter feeling like snow and icy goodness!

I used the middle row of the board:
-old book page
-colour blue

Here is a quick glance at this month's bingo board over at 123 Get Scrappy!
Be sure to check out the inspiration from the other DT members and linky up with your creation!  There's a chance for a GDT spot!  How cool is that!

I can't wait to see what you create!

New Year, New Twisted Tuesday Challenge! Happy 2014!

Hey Everyone!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!  I have a feeling this is going to be a super great year!  I ran in a "Resolution Run" on New Year's Eve.  It was a 5km Winter run and authentic winter run it was!  -The temperature was -19C with the wind factor!  I sure was a chilly one but I did it!  I ran the whole way!  (Stopping really makes the cold seem 100 times colder so it's a great motivation to keep running!).  HUGE accomplishment for me!   I hoping I started the new year off on the right foot.  Here's to a year of fitness, health, happiness and a lot of craft time!

The first challenge for this 2014 year over at Twisted Tuesday Challenges is: Mixed Signals!
The Challenge: Use at least 3 crafty company products on your creation.
The Twist: Use an arrow somewhere on your project!

Here is my cranium concoction:
"hair" letters: Thickers; "gone" letters: Chatterbox; patterned papers: DCWV; Butterfly punches: EK Success, Martha Stewart; journal stamp: Autumn Leaves; doily die: Spellbinders.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
