Yup, heard that right! Scrap Orchard is hosting a bingo game online on Nov 1st. If a card is filled by 18 calls, winner gets a GC for $200 to spend over three months time. I will be there with bells on. I have never won at Bingo, so Nat picked the numbers. Participants have to scrap their own card. Here is mine. For details head over there.(now closed for new entries)

A few months ago, after I gave a digiscrap/ blogging seminar I was approached by the Florida Keys Community College in Key West to do another one for them. I just now confirmed the date. I will be speaking and instructing on Dec. 4 and spreading more scrap-joy! Even though public speaking is not my favorite thing to do, with the subject matter being something I love, it will make it easier.
Notice something different up at the top? I have been wanting to change out the blog header for a while now and I got such a positive response to a LO I did a couple weeks ago, I just used it. It is comprised of the Oscraps Oktober Collab, except the knotted clip line is from Cloud 9 by mgl Scraps.
I have been anxious to use a kit I won a couple weeks ago during a speed scrap. I used a combo actually of a couple of Kami's kits.

Over at the Orchard they had 7 days of freebies called Autumn Festival. You had to be quick as the kits were out for 1 day each. I even made a layout right away with the first one. KIT CREDITS: Autumn Festival Freebie-1: Cherry Mint by Irene Alexeeva
Yesterday, I found a scraplift challenge at Oscraps that was definitely inspiring. I have been wanting to do a white/negative space layout for a while and I still tend to go overboard...this is the closest I've come so far.

For October I made this desktop with the newest release from a collab from Monica and Franziska called Nightshade. It happens that I am CTing for BOTH these fabulous designers! I only used the tip of the iceberg...The kit has so much more. PLUS there was so much, they made an addon, alphas and QPs as well. I hope you enjoy this month's desktop. Click on the image to download.I'd love to hear your comments.

Here is the preview of the kit, available here and here.
Back in 2003 right after Nat finished 1st grade I took the photo here and around that time I had seen a tutorial somewhere about how to make the type drawing that is so popular now...kinda like the "Talk to Chuck" commercials. This was done purely by redrawing and not a shortcut action. It's not so bad, but I will have to work at it to get better.

to the fabulous Florida Keys! I have lived in the Upper Keys off and on since 1988 and I wouldn't want to be anywhere else. Raising a teen here is great fun! We love our town, our school, our community!
