Each month we offer a prize drawing to everyone who participates on the blog! We'd love to have you participate too! Check out the blog link here. The prize is always a great one! Last month's winner won a whole pile of Valentine's Day themed patterned paper, some Making Memories gems and some cool metal art pieces!

All you have to do is link your blog address with your completed challenge to the blog challenge, or send your scrapbooking tip or send a picture of your completed page to Tara at thynner5@yahoo.ca . As simple as that!

A Little Photo Fun...

I received my Sweet Pea Scraps DT kit in the mail yesterday and I have been dying to get something started for that so I pulled out my camera this afternoon and have been experimenting with it.

Here are some of my favourite shots from today....

I'm hoping to use some of them on my pages in the next few days! Feels good to get scrapping again after being sick for a week!

Blog Hopping Again!

Lately I have been blog hopping. I've been enjoying reading a whole slew of new and fun stuff!

Tonight I came across this one and just HAD to share it with you!

How Sweet It Is....

Read her first post! All I can say is... "Can he teach my husband about these type things?"

I'm in LOVE!

So I was blog hopping the other day and I came across this beautiful blog, {Capture The Moment}.

And I was scrolling down and I saw this blog entry!!!

OH MY GOODNESS!!! I am in love!!!!

These gorgeous stamps were just released today (Friday, February 15) and I ordered them as soon as they showed up in their site, Papertrey Ink! I just had to have them!

Make sure you check out Nichole's blog and her stamp site. She currently has a drawing for one person to win each month's new releases from Feb 15/08 until next Feb 13/09... WOWSERS! A whole year's worth of FREE stamps!!!

Happy Valentine's Day everyone!!!

Home... home again and Love cards!

I made a page for Noel Mignon's blog challenge all about "Hometowns". I stepped out of my colour comfort zone and used PURPLE!!!! Wowsers!!! Check it on her blog!

I made this card for Allison's blog "Stampin' When I Can"! We were to use a "dollar" stamp. I used the "dollar & half" heart stamp from See D's I got a few weeks back.

Weekend Scrappin' and Mischeivous Smiles!
