Here is my take on Opal #9 this week. These are more pictures from the Scrapbook Steals retreat that I went to in October. I got to share a table with some awesome new friends! I used my favorite Lime Twist collection Happy Go Lucky. I love the Sassafras flowers. They match everything! I added a pebble chip to the bottom. I used my Lucky Limeade Stampin' Write marker for the journaling. Thanks for stopping by!

I'm playing catch up today. This is my LO for Opal #2. I used My Minds Eye Lime Twist, Making Memories shimmer alphas & Wedding blossoms, AC foam Thickers, and brads from my stash.

Wow! Where did October go? I can't believe it's November already! The rest of the year is going to fly! My husband bought VIP tickets for us to go to the So You Think You Can Dance Tour in October! We got to have our picture taken with the top 10 cast and then have a meet and greet session with them. I also got some individual pictures taken with some of the cast. Our seats were in the 2nd row!! The show was so amazing!! We had a blast! I used Basic Grey's Sweet Threads collection for everything! Thanks for stopping by!!

Here is my LO for Opal 3! I love this sketch! It was so easy to put together! I used Fancy Pants' Happy Together for everything except the background paper which is Bo Bunny Double Dot. I left the journaling block blank because I am going to make my husband fill it out! SO you may have noticed that I skipped Opal #2! I was lucky enough to attend Scrapbook Steals first ever retreat! I didn't have time to work on it before the retreat and I was too tired after. So hopefully I'll get to it in a few days! The retreat was sooooo much fun. I got to meet and hang out with so many scrappy friends. I added a picture of the gang in front of the warehouse! Thanks for stopping by!

Here is my entry for this month's sketch challenge at Authentique. I started out thinking it would be a birthday card, but I think it would be a good wedding card too! So I decided to leave the inside blank until I need it. Everything is Authentique except the Vintage flower from Stampin' UP. I also used SU's scallop border punch. Thanks for stopping by!

My Stampin' UP supplies are basic black cs, large lace ribbon punch, and Doily Triple layer punch. Thanks for stopping by!

I was so excited when Authentique put up their first sketch challenges. Then I realized you needed to use their product to win. I sadly didn't have any yet. However, I was lucky enough to win some from their facebook page!! So today I sat down and did the card sketch. I used papers from the 6x6 Uncommon paper pad. My Stampin' UP supplies included are decorative label punch; Going Gray, Pretty in Pink, & Rose Red Stampin' Write markers; Teeny Tiny Wishes & Four Frames stamps. I love the colors in the Uncommon line! Thanks for stopping by!

This week Scrapbook Steals had an awesome guest sketcher for Topaz 7! And there are 2 sketches! I had a plan for the first sketch but discovered I was out of printer ink so I couldn't print the pictures I wanted! So I moved on to plan B and used the 2nd sketch! I love how it came together! I used MME's Lime Twist, Basic Grey's Offbeat chipboard, and Sassafras in a stitch flowers. The big glitter chipboard alphas were some I received in a swap box so I'm not sure what brand they are. Thanks for stopping by!

Just a quick post to show you my interpretation of this weeks Mid Week Mojo. The sketch is an awesome 2 pager, but I couldn't find enough photos that would work with both sides. So I decided to just use the left side. I just got the Bo Bunny Peacock Lane kit and it is PERFECT for my wedding photos!! I love it! Everything is from that kit except the Sassafras flower in the upper left and the flowers and brad in the lower right are from Bo Bunny Jazmyne! Thanks for stopping by!

Here is a really quick LO I did this afternoon. The most time consuming thing was trying to figure out the best way to get the twine through the button so I could tie a bow. I probably did it the most difficult way, but I am pleased with how it came out. The twine is honeydew from the Twinery. The button is from BG Boxer and everything else is from BG Green at Heart. Oh and the butterfly and little face are just protecting the underage :) Thanks for stopping by!
