Kristal (being the very creative person that she is!) didn’t just see a gingerbread house! She had some amazing ideas for this file! Visit her blog (TheScrappinGypsy at http://www.yourgypsygirl.blogspot.com/) to read them all.

Her wonderful and creative ideas made me see this file in a whole new way! I just love what she did here and how cute are those bunnies?!!

Stickles 10% Off Coupon on Stickles and Leprechaun Bear

I LOVE Stickles! I do not like glitter glue. Glitter glue dries in clumps, it dries clear and barely even sparkles. Stickles is amazing!!! It dries all sparkly and goes on like a dream!!! I love it so much I went to ThatsScrapInc.com store owner, Sherri, and asked if I could do an exclusive promotion!

This sketch is the inspiration for next weeks Tuesday night class. That isn’t true, the Stickles inspired it! They made me think of rainbows and Spring filled days!

I am so excited to offer you an exclusive coupon for 10% off ALL of your Stickle purchases from my favorite online store!!! Now it will be easier to get each of the colors of the rainbow for next weeks class!!! I have purchased from ThatsScrapInc.com many times and been super impressed with the speedy delivery and wonderful customer service!

I put in a request to Esther, from EsthersCreativeDesigns, for a Leprechaun tear bear and I will be adding that left of the pot. She is soo creative!!! (The tear bear is represented by the green guy on the right side of the sketch) Not only did she create a wonderful little guy to work with my layout, but she is offering it to all of my readers at a discount!!! Just mention the discount code of ‘Tammey’ and save 10% on the Leprechaun Tear Bear purchase!!!!! Thanks Esther!

Karon also joined in the fun! I really enjoyed this challenge and loved how each person created their layout and interpreted it just a little bit different. Karon used the metallic paper from ThatsScrapInc.com. I recently ordered some of that paper and I just love it!! Fabulous stuff.

Excellent job ladies! I appreciate all of your time and effort and thank you from the bottom of my heart for sharing your talent with us!

Monster Truck Layout (Based on the sketch)

This is the layout I put together based on the Monster Truck Sketch I posted yesterday. I used a pattern paper for the background. It has words all over it in muted, almost fall like colors. The largest torn border at the bottom is a brown bazzil paper and then a cream torn border on top of that. I printed the title and added some clipart. Then I used Tim Holtz Distress Ink by Ranger (Tea Dye color) to ink the edges of the title and the border. (I was out of good photo paper so the pictures look flat. After I get them printed I will replace them on the layout)

Monster Truck Sketch

This is the sketch I’ll be working from tonight when I create my layout. I’ve included the supply list at the bottom of the sketch.

My husband and I really surprised the boys last Saturday when we took them to Monster Jam 09 at the Fargodome. I had never been to one before and was very pleasantly surprised by the whole experience! The drivers of Spike and Brutus were by FAR the most cordial and kid friendly drivers. The Superman driver, which was the one little Ryan wanted to meet the most, he seemed to have not patience and really tried to rush everyone through. I was the most disappointed with that driver. The Grave Digger driver did pretty well with them. He was in a hurry and overwhelmed, but he wasn’t rude or anything. Max D and his crew were busy fixing his car so we didn’t get to visit with him. I uploaded a few pics from the event to my photo blog.
