To my project:

 I had some fun coloring this file: Little-Penguin-Winter--winter-bench_p_2383 from our sponsor Bugaboo Stamps:
 I used Chameleon alcohol markers, which I'm still learning how to use as you can see: 

The Cabochons are from Connie's crafty cart ebay store, as well as the green stickles I added everywhere 
to add some more sparkle to this image. I also used some clear Wink of Stella to the snowflakes, snow, and cheeks
of the penguins, which is hard to see in this images.


For the inside, I added more glitter cardstock and a sentiment from Tattered Lace. Also accented with wink of stella
marker. The ink I used, as well as cardstocks are from CTMH. The patterned paper is from Tattered Lace Magazine 
(their free paper in their special Christmas issue).


I hope you enjoyed this project and decide to play along this fun challenge.
Scrappy hugs,

Dear scrappers, 
This is my post for Connie Can Crop I made this layout for a fall break trip we took 3 years ago (speaking of procrastinating...):



My supplies:

closer look at the left side:


To the right side:


some closeups:







I used this paper from BoBunny because it accents the pumpkins in the pictures, I took in our fall trip to Grapevine, TX 3 years ago. I made this layout during my trip to Boston, I'm so behind my scrapbooking LOL...

I made this layout at the inside courtyard of the Boston Central Library:


The weather was fabulous and believe me the looks I received for crafting in public were amazingly funny, you know, she must be crazy kind of looks... But i had fun and met my deadline at Connie's blog.




BTW, I used some cabochons from Connie's Crafty Cart:
