You Stink - I love this one. I was trying to use Circus Train to have like a man circus and I just couldn't come up with anything funny to say to go with it. So I looked at the steam and thought stench. I almost paired it up with Bubble Queen and with the girl from It's a Cheer Thing, but this one was cuter.

Hmmm...I am not really good at my techniques just yet. I was going to try ghosting this weekend after I saw a nice Lovely as a Tree example. I like crayon resist and gamsol/prismacolor pencils as well. As you can see, being a relative newbie, I am figuring out the basics before I go to some of the other great things I have seen on SCS (I don't even own a stylus or a heat gun yet...shh!). Thanks for the contest...
My favorite technique (today) is coloring with the watercolor crayons. Still need lots of practice, but I do enjoy it. Thanks for the opportunity to win!
Crystal said...I know how to find KimK's address and I have Crystal's so I just need Allison's and Marcie's. You can send them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org
Are you suprised to hear how much I love faux stitching? WITH THE HOLES PUNCHED CHEATER! HA! Punch holes with hole piercer from tool kit and connect the dots with the white gel pen! SO cute! Now my dear friend Lorien does it a cute way too, she just makes the lines with the pen and skips the holes, she thinks it is too time consuming, but her stuff is great even without holes! :)
Congrats to the winners and thanks to everyone for sharing!

The Littleton frame uses Mellow Moss, Night of Navy and More Mustard. I think that is the retired Crazy alphabet and Crosshatch is used in the backround on the moss. There is some Mustard and some black gingham ribbon and black brads.
The Carter frame has Always Artichoke, Not Quite Navy and More Mustard. The letters are from Headline alphabet and the background is Crosshatch. I added a funky paperclip with mustard, french blue and taupe ribbon and some silver diamond shaped brads.

The colors I used were Chocolate Chip, So Saffron, and Buckaroo Blue. And the letters were from the Big Deal alphabet.
I'm working on a post for this weekend that will feature name frames and there will be a BLOG CANDY CONTEST so make sure you check back in this weekend.

Ok so here are couple of pictures I took with my new camera....
Now you are probably saying "Lorien, your pictures don't look any better than anyone else's" ...but you have to remember I am coming from a 1 megapixel camera. I took these in really low light so I was even more pleased how well they turned out. And click on them. They will get big and you can see every little detail clearly. ooooh, aaaaaah!
So this was an altered altoid tin and a little mini card and envelope that fits inside. I had bought a bunch of altoid tins at www.specialtybottle.com and we used some of them at a stamp camp where we made magnets with the glass marbles and then we decorated the tins and the magnets went inside...They make a cute little gift, but I don't have any pictures of those right now. I was trying to come up with other things to do with those altoid tins and this was one of them. I decoupaged the Spring Showers paper to the top of the tin and I also used it to make the mini envelope. The stamp set I used is Looks Like Spring. I also used the Spring Bouquet Punch to punch out the little flower in the middle of the big one (it is under a clear button). Colors used were Bashful Blue, So Saffron, Chocolate Chip and Whisper White.
Last night Maddie and I went out to dinner and shopping, just the two of us. It was nice. I think she had a great time and felt like a real big girl.
If I don't have something to show you later today, I will tomorrow

I'm home all alone right now. Well, just me and Bailey. She is such a good doggie! She is sitting on my lap now. Morgan and Carter are at Grandma Linda's and Madison is at Grandma Gen's. This was Morgan's first sleepover. I wonder how she did...I'm going to go rescue my mom as soon as I get the laundry put away. I had a crappy new year's eve. Corey and I went out to dinner and then I got mad at him and went to bed at 10:00. I should've kept the kids home last night. I probably would've had a better time with them!!! Hopefully this will be a good year, a happy year.
My new camera will be here tomorrow. I checked the tracking info and it is sitting somewhere in Flint.
Tomorrow I go back to work. I'm really having mixed feelings about it. I don't want to get up at 5:00 and run around like a nut trying to get the kids out the door and then drive an hour, or more, to get to work and then the 1st few days I will be trying to catch up on all the emails I missed - if I have a working computer. I think I got a new laptop while I was out and they are supposed to have it all configured for me when I come in tomorrow. We'll see.
