3T Tuesday- I made it!

Hi there!
I know I've been a stranger!  Things have been rather crazy while the kids get back to school.  Connor and Kaylee both love their teachers which is great!

So- for 3T Tuesday this week I'd like to direct you to a blog I received a post from with a technique I had NEVER heard of!  It involves using BLEACH!  But so simple!  I can't wait to have time to try it!

Check out the blog right here for the Bleaching and Pastel's technique.

Here is another blog I follow (there are a few!)  This was also a neat technique using crayons!  Yup- ordinary crayons!  Check out the post  here 

So a couple new techniques for you.  Enjoy!!
Hopefully you can find some time to try these out!  Happy Scrappin'!

Scrappin' Simply Spotlight- Mom n Me!

HELLO!!!  I know- I have been bad!  Getting back into the routine after returning home from a month and a half at the trailer has not gone so well!  With school starting on Tuesday though, it is what it is!  On a happy note, Al has been busy de-junking our house and has created a little crafting area for me in the basement.  I am SO DARN EXCITED!!!  I'll post some pictures of my little area soon.

So, I know I have missed many of my regular posts but I'm hoping to get back into the swing of things now!  Actually I even have some scheduled scrapbooking time with my AWESOME neighbour, Nicole, scheduled for this weekend.  AND I have a new Cricut Expression, compliments of my AWESOME hubby (thanks Al!).  So my CTMH cartridge is on the way and I can't wait to get it!  Until then, I've been trying to find some time to play with the cartridges which came with the machine.

So- onto the Spotlight- I'd like to mention Mom n Me Scrap- otherwise known as Shirley Ross. I know I have mentioned her before but have not had her officially in our spotlight.  This lady is just amazing!  If you don't follow her blog, you really must!  She does regular tutorials, she is always showcasing great things on other blogs and stuff going on.  In her most recent post she was part of a Card a Day blog.  SO Much fun and what a great card she made!  If you want to see that post in particular, click here.  Otherwise, to hit the home page of her blog, click here.

I have been doing some fun cards for different events and have been trying out some techniques I have been wanting to try but haven't had the time or confidence to yet.  So I'm hoping to get all of that into a post soon.

I hope you are all having a wonderful Labour Day weekend! I just can't believe it is September already!  I hope you can find some time for yourself during this busy weekend!

Until next time... Happy Scrappin!
