Thank you...FISKARS!!!

Happy Friday everyone!! I sure am glad it's Friday, that means....scrap the night away! For Lent I am trying to sleep before midnight. It's really throwing me off since I'm used to sleeping 1-2am. When I go to be around 11pm, I end up waking up around 3am! Well, hopefully I'll get used to it and will be refreshed and ready to roll every morning!
In the last post I featured pictures and layouts from the crop at Picture Me Perfect. It was a fundraiser for the American Heart Association. There were a bunch of raffle prizes and I won an amazing box filled with Fiskars goodies!! I even took a photo because I was so excited! LOL. I finally had a chance to play with some of it and created some layouts. I also created a card that I will send to Fiskars....THANK YOU!

The box was filled with lots of lovey goodness! It was a great way to scrap LAST YEAR's Valentines..LOL. Look how tiny Joey looks. And Jasmin...she still looks like a little girl..sweet, not sassy!! wahhhh!

There were also pretty elegant papers from Heidi Grace. I used them for the 1st layout in our 2009 album.

I also have a few more in the works. I'm telling you...this box was PACKED! But I will leave you with this card. Since I'll be sending it, I wanted to scan it..LOL. It's a 6x6 card using patterned paper for the base. I also dusted off the Threading Water punch. Ohhh, so pretty! I think I'll be using it again for a while..LOL. THANK YOU sooo much Fiskars, not only for the amazing prize, but also for your support in such a good cause!

BTW, so sorry for the crazy scans lately. I really think I'll be needing a new scanner. My large format scanner is now 5 years old! I purchased it from ebay in 2004 when I started being on scrapping design teams. I can't believe at one point I was actually designing for about 7 different online places, designing for Canvas Concepts, and teaching at Bay Area Scrappers all at the same time! That was when I didn't work, Jasmin wasn't even 1 year old, Jordan was just in preschool, and Joey was still floating in the air. Time sure has changed where years feel like hours and days feel like seconds. Have a great weekend everyone. I challenge you to just and do nothing for an hour!! I don't know if I can pull that off...LOL!
