I'm a bad lil findings

Oh my... have I sucked this month or what huh? LOL Well all is well in my world, Alexa is loving school and ballet, Angelina hates ballet (we're looking into soccer for her), Cody will be with us for Xmas, John just finished another one of his security computer courses, I had a blast at NAVCAN and I am now looking foward to getting caught up on some internet reading and findings... ENJOY!

Looking for some daily inspiration?? The Sisterhood of Scrap blog is a great blog with something new posted everyday. They feature a new sketch artist every week. Check them out!

Want some Halloween project ideas... check out the paper salon blog here

Great layering tutorial here and a mini album that I think is just scrumptious.... the site is called Studio Calico and here the link

My girlfriend Barb has been at home nursing a yucky cold... nice to see it hasn't hindered her Check out these awesome lo's she's done.

Blog I came across and I think it ROCKS... it's called Lessons from the Scrapbook Page

Looking for some bath treats for the cold winter that is coming? Well check out LUSH. Every time around this year I get ready for my mini shopping spree at Lush and I love that they are in mini gift packages too... I STRONGLY RECOMMEND them!!!!! LOL

KI Memories has a Focus on Halloween challenge up!

Please do yourselves a favour and have a read at my girlfriends Chris's blog. Her latest entry about the rain totally made me smile.. she is one amazig insightful woman!

Came across this spooky Halloween frame... you can go ahead and leave the frame coloured as shown in the pic below. Or look further into the tutorial and see how you can paint it to make it look more eerie!! Here is the link

There is a new challenge blog out there in scrap land... It is called "Global Perspectives" and it is a group of scrapping friends from around the world. Kind of a pretty great idea. The Canadian Kellie is an old scrap land friend of mine and is ubber talented... Check em out here!

Speaking of new blogs... I found this blog called the "The Journaling Junkie". I know that I need more work on my journalling and I think these challenges may actually inspire me to do so!


New sketch alert from Pencil Lines.

Queen & Coy posted this awesome idea about stitching on their floral felt ribbon (can you imagine how great this would look on the swirl felt ribbon too) Check out the post here.

Want a quick gift idea??? Check this out.....

I have really been enjoying reading Heidi Swapp's blog lately. She seems to be adopting her new life in a new country quite nicely. Check her entries out here

Daisy D's is holding a DT call... You have until 30 Nov 07 to submit your "scrap resume"... Here are the details!

You Are Scary

You even scare scary people sometimes!

The oldest and strongest emotion of mankind is fear, and the oldest and
strongest kind of fear is fear of the unknown.
