May Giveaway!!!

Just a heads up... I am going to be participating in the Sew, Mama, Sew! Blog giveaway day. I thought it would be a great way to get my feet wet with my FIRST GIVEAWAY! I am so excited!

Here are the details:

I will leave the giveaway open until 5:00 pm EST May 31st. Check back after five to see if you are the winner (I will need your email to contact you)!

You can enter once by posting a comment about my blog or any of the items I have created.

You can enter a second time by becoming a follower of my blog.

You can enter a third time by posting about my giveaway on your blog (please leave me another comment linking back to your blog if you do this).

The winner will be selected randomly.

Since this is my very first giveaway I will not ship internationally (so sorry, maybe next time).

Now for the Prize!

I will be giving away one of my glittery chipboard albums. I have a special one in the works, pictures to come shortly. Please look at the previous post to see some examples.

Update: This giveaway is now closed. Thank you for all of your comments.

Scrappy Weekend!

I had a great time scrappin' this weekend here with a great group of girls! Check out some of the great things I made! I am very excited about how these scrappy things turned out!

A round chipboard book...

A chipboard purse with some glittery paper...

A scrappy journal...

An Amy Butler mini-scrapbook... yum!

This is my recipe card for the recipe swap next month, it just needs a brad on the tag. ;)

A grunge urban journal...

I made some other things but they are gifts and I cannot post pictures yet! ;)

Backed Up on Blogging

May has proven to be a very busy month! As I am writing this I am wondering where the month has gone... Perhaps I did not notice the month of May arriving with the nervousness of standardized testing, end of the year evaluations, research, completing graduate courses for the semester, celebration of my brother's graduation, and the excitement of the nearing of the end of the school year. Whatever the reasons, I have failed to be an active blogger lately.

The following pictures are an attempt to highlight some of the recent events.

My brother's graduation from Macon State College with his Associate's Degree.

We couldn't be more proud of him!

My mom and I have just recently found a wonderful group of women that get together to scrap the first Saturday of every month. If you live in Georgia, you should check them out: HOGS (Heart of Georgia Scrappers).

Here is a picture of my mom and I in action (don't tell but I actually worked on jewelry instead of scrapping). :)

We have elected to participate in a recipe swap they have each month. This month the theme was peaches. My recipe came from this amazing site!

Check out the peaches on my tags! I made the tags using Creative Memories Tag Punch. For the peaches, I printed a photo of of Microsoft Word to use as a template. Stuck it all down and secured it with a brad. Not too bad for a spare time scrapper. :)
