make a dent monday...

yep... bringing back my "make a dent monday" feature.

ok-so it never really was a "regular" thing. but it is a great idea for those of us that have a TON of scrappy supplies that they want to use, but maybe it is considered "old", or without some inspiration, ya might not use the leftovers of a kit or collection.

for this weeks "make a dent" layout, i went back to the Pebbles Inc. product i was JUST using-but couldn't help but glance at a couple pieces of GREAT patterned papers i didn't get to...

i loved the colors so much, i grabbed a frame on hand and used it to showcase this colorful tribute to our spoiled pup! 

so there ya go... makin' a dent.
next week, i HAVE to dive into some oldies...

scrap anything with "old" paper you just couldn't part with? or paper you never noticed before but now just LOVE? i'd love to see!

It's about time!!! (and a GIVEAWAY!!)

time to start a new blog!
VERY overdue!
i decided it would be easier to get a new blog, than try to redo the last one.
and it has it's own memories of sorts.

so here we are!!
i am digitally impaired, but somehow i managed to make a banner/header, and buy and add text to lil banners for the sidebars. it is kinda embarrassing to admit just how long it took me to do those, and text, etc. etc... i used free editing tools (fotoflexer). it works for now. too cheap to hire someone.

i think instead of doing some INSANELY long blog post about what i have been up to, i think i will recap as i go! i HAVE to at least go back a couple weeks to my attending Whatever Craft Weekend!! FUN!

ok-the giveaway!
