October Promotion Winner!

Thank you to everyone who entered our October promotion. Our October promotion winner is (drum roll please) . . . . Karol Harrison! She's won the Halloween "Boo to You" Cuttlebug embossing folder!

Be sure to sign up to get on our e-mail list . . . this is how we announce our monthly promotions! Our November promotion will be announced soon.

I just had to share with you what I've done this weekend! I've had such a "crafting" weekend! My sister sent me an e-mail on Thursday, to a link on Martha Stewart's website . . . she stated in her e-mail, ". . . aren't these cute? Do you think we could make them?" Me turn down a night to craft? NO WAY! I told her of course and she came over last night and we created some Halloween candy coffins! Didn't they turn out cute? Martha had all black coffins, with a "Beware" sticker on them. Her coffins were cute . . . but the coffins Theresa and I made turned out pretty darn cute!

Today, was our Cricuteer crop @ Jenny's house. Her husband cooked an absolute fabulous appetizer and meal for all of us! Theresa, my sister, joined us too! We went up to a local scrapbook store, where they were having a free Make & Take . . . we thought it'd be a good break in the day. This was Theresa's first official crop AND Make & Take. While we were there, Theresa saw a Frankenstein paint tin . . . she brought everything for it and when we came back, she started makin' her Frankenstein . . . she what she created? Isn't it the cutest? She wanted to create some Christmas candy boxes too . . . so I drew up a template for her and she went to town on these too! We've come to the conclusion that she LOVES glitter . . . I have to admit, the stickers were cute . . . but she make 'em down right gorgeous with "glitter bling" added.

Laurie showed us this glitter stuff from and oh my gosh . . . if you like glitter, be sure to check it out! There is this sticky paper, that you place your brass embossing plates on, and then you add glitter. When you pull the brass plate off, it leaves the glitter on there very neatly and then you add even MORE glitter (to make the whole sheet of paper not sticky)! It's a must, for you "glitter bling girls"!

Here are some other pictures, of all the Cricuteers hard at work!

Again, congrats and enjoy Karol!
