End of the month madness!

It's the end of the month again, and DT projects are due!
Plus, summer is coming to and end and school starts next week!

Will I enjoy my weekend at the coast???
It's our last try to get to our favorite vacation spot before the "good" weather ends here in Oregon. Part of me desperately wants to get away, another part of me is stressing about the projects I have due next week (that I haven't started on yet). Should I bring some supplies with me to the beach? Or should I leave it all behind and take a break.
I know I should leave it here at home, but you know obsessions and addictions are hard to shake! LOL!

Anyway, some super, fantastic FLOWERY news!!!
The owner from Cafe Prima has offered me a DT position, and I have accepted!!
OMG!! Can you believe it?? I will be in flower heaven!!!
This website has awesome kits of Prima flowers, the latest and greatest of Prima products, all in one wonderful website!
Check them out at

Here is my last project for Craft Warehouse. A 20x20 inch canvas, with one 8x10, and three 5x7 photos.
It was a whole lotta gluing and smoothing down of paper, but I think it came out pretty cool.
Sienna is becoming such a little lady, I took these photos of her monday, just for this project, to match the pattern paper.
How sick is that??? LOL!

Well, I'm hoping to get this project back one day, as it will hang in the CW store that I shop at. I have another blank Canvas, maybe I should make one for myself...but when will I ever get the time?

Well, it's about time to get to bed...hopefully I'll be less stressed and not so far behind on projects next time I blog. Thanks for stopping by!

OH, and about that RAK I mentioned a few blogs ago???
Sign up and join the Scrap Treasures cybercrop,
which started today and goes through Sunday...
register and say that "Melanie sent me" (or if you are already registered -pm me with "blog" in the subject) and get a RAK of some cool new scrappy stuff!!

Crazy as a lizard with it's head cut off!

Thats what Sienna would have said! That how I was feeling, and was the kind of weeks we have been having, this last month!
Alot of Design projects due at the end of the month, and other special events ~ like our upcoming Scrap Tresures Beach Party Cybercrop starting this Thurday, 8/30 thru Labor Day weekend! :)

Lots of fun games & challenges & RAKs & prizes!
Hope to see you there!

Today, I am officially done with my CRaft Warehouse Design Team term. My last projects were altering a wooden cigar box and altering a 20x20 canvas. They turned out beautiful and I hope to get them back one day. :)
TFL! Melanie
Time to get to bed!

Beach Party At Scrap Treasures!!

The Scrap Treasures Beach Party Cybercrop starts this Thursday, August 30.
And we'd love for you to invite your friends to join us for the games, challenges, door prizes, and chatter!
What could be better on a Labor Day weekend than a scrapping, online beach party???
At least we won't have to fight the bugs and sand.

Here's the first challenge. Feel free to steal this blinkie and start spreading the word. Post about the crop on your blog (or any message board that will allow that).
Come back here and put a link to your post in this thread. Everyone that signs in here with a link inviting everyone to our crop will have their name in the drawing for a mini-kit RAK.
This is 5 sheets of Bazzill, 4 paper in the MME Magnolia line, 2 flowers, 2 ribbons and a pack of rub-ons.

I'll be there hanging with you, under my beach unbrella, drinking my Pina Coldas!

Speaking of Beach Party, check out what I did with my August ST Kit!

Back from California!

Sienna had fun in California, swimming in her Grandparents pool. She also spent a lot of time playing with her Uncles that she rarely sees.

Back to reality and back to scrapbooking!

It's a new month, and a whole new load of DT projects!
This month I get to play with Daisy D's, K & Company, Basic Grey, and Cherry Arte!

Be sure to check back to see my DT projects that I made last month!

Also coming up on my blog, a RAK !!!
I am going to do some "Back to school" cleaning in my craftroom!
If you don't mind some scrapbook products that are a few years old, this is a RAK you'll love!

Check back to see when I'll be giving this RAK away!

Have an awesome day!
