Yep, I have found yet anoter awesome, or should I say Oz-Some sketch challenge from Heather at Oz-Somestamps.  Love, love, love it's simplicity!  I have been wanting to participate for almost 3 months or so, but with all the changes that have taken place since August, I havent had time!  So carpe diem!

Papers:  Su! Always artichoke, Morning Marigold, Choc. Chip, Very vanilla, and don't remember the orange one, but is it my absolute FAV of all time!  If  you know it, please tell me!
Ink:  Choc. Chip by Su!.  Hard to believe, but there is NO ribbon, buttons, glitter, brads, hardware or anything on this card.  BUT, it has a timeless simplicity that is great for men or women alike.  AND because of it's simplicity, it is beautiful.  Sometimes you don't need all the frills. 

Another reason I love love love Heather & Oz-Somestamps sketches is because she gives you all the measurements!  Yep!  every cut you will make to create this card is given to you!  Isnt that Oz-some?!  I know, lame...but I like it!  Anyway, I hope you take a quick 5 mintues to try one of Heather's sketches.  Along with all her great sketches, she's got a great blog for tips, tricks, and even more ideas for you to enjoy!

Yes, I've been MIA. Football, gymnastics, kids school, my school, work, and a husband and my third child, Holly the golden retreiver, all are beggging for much needed attention. SO, as things start getting back to some type of routine, so will I :)

Would like to up date everyone on some very important dates! Get your calendars!

September 9th Back to School Camp

October 4th CHRISTMAS CAMP & Party

Nobember 4th Give Thanks Camp

December 2nd Holiday Camp

I found some of the local school calendars on line and have tried to pick dates that do not interfere with school events. I am the WORST when it comes to picking dates for camps! I hope after reconciling all the calendars, everyone can make it! In addition, I have set dates thru the end of the year.

Not to make life more complicated, I have decided to reclaim a space in my basement for my studio/hobby room. Yes, it's always been in my basement, but it has been shared with my son, the home gym, storage, and arcade. With my design background, you would have thought that I would have better utilized my already finished basement. BUT hey! It is ME we are chatting about~! So hopefully by October/November I will debut my newly designed studio at one of the camps. I'll have to post some pics to show my progress. Along with any craft projects that I manage to get done in that time too:)

Feel free to become a follower! We will be having some extra contests for "followers" of my blog. More to come on that too!

Winks & Wishes!
