Another Week Come and Gone

I am so Happy to say that Logan and I won! I entered "The Man" contest at Serendipity Scrapbooks last month and I won the Grand Prize. That is so exciting for me. I read about this contest last month before I went up to Oregon so while I was there I started this project. I heard about this company when my favorite designer, Scrapperlicious, won the June Contest. I am really glad I found it. The company has a lot to offer and the owner is very nice. I still don't know what the prize is but I do know that Cosmo Cricket was the sponsor for last month. I should get my prize in the mail tomarrow and if not then Mon. I'll let you know when I get it. I will also photograph the contents of the Serendipity Monthly Kit that I ordered. I am going to get started on that project tonight and I have to start thinking about the monthly Contest. It is titled "Let them Eat Cake" and you have to design and make a cake out of paper. I have some ideas I just have to decide on which paper to use. I also wanted to send a great big huge Birthday Hug to Logan! My Little Man is going to be One on the 14th. I can't believe it was a whole year ago. It seems like just yesterday that I was getting on that plane to go be with Sam for the big day. I wish I could be there this year.

It has been a very long week, but a fun one. I have made a ton of paper. Okay I haven't made the paper, I've altered a lot of paper. Paint, ink and even color crayons. The melted wax is really neat but I don't think it would be very permanent. I can just see if you left for work one day and the air conditionar went out and it got really hot in the house, you'd end up with melted wax running down the walls and no picture left. Now that I have all this paper I really need to get busy and get some projects finished. There is a company that I really like called Verve Designs and it is their 1 year anniversary on the 12th of Aug. Consequently they have all of these sketches this month (12 in all) and if you enter one for each of the sketches you have a chance to win the new stamp line that they are unveiling on Tues. I do love their stamps so I think I will spend the weekend making cards. I also have to get started on my Kit design and a sketch for Basic Grey. Anyway here are the papers I altered this week. I think showcasing them in this format is intresting and it doesn't take up so much space. Let me know what you think.

This is a piece that I did a few months ago. It was my first collage piece auctually and I have not photographed it before. I do really like this piece.

I look forward to another packed week and I can't wait to see my prize. I hope everyone has a great week.
