I made this card for Simon Says Stamp's Monday challenge. The challenge was to use an exclusive Simon product. I used a die called Bella Bloom to make my flower. My image is stamped on an alchohol ink background. I used patterned paper and two different types of netting to make the flower.

Hello Blogging Friends. I made this scrapbook page from Gossamer Blue's September kit. I think the only items not from the kit are the white card stock, the journaling stamp and the alpha. I'm a relatively new subscriber to Gossamer Blue and I plan on entering their challenge to make 4 layouts a month from their kits. This layout is about playing mini golf on a long weekend trip to Branson.
Still on the fence about True Scrap 5, an awesome on line papercrafting convention?
I've been to the other True Scrap events, and they were a lot of fun and full of useful information. But if you've never been, Lain is hosting a complimentary True Scrap Sneak Peek event on Thursday, Sept. 26 to give people a taste of what True Scrap is all about. This is what Lain has to say about the preview: "By now you've probably heard about True Scrap 5, the universe's coolest, funnest, and most innovative scrapbooking and papercrafting event. If you aren't one of the over 200 people already signed up to join us online on Oct. 11 and 12, maybe you have some questions.
Not sure about the whole "virtual webroom" thingy?
Confused about whether you'll like interacting and learning in that online environment?
Wondering if True Scrap is really different than other online learning opportunities?
Wonder no more! Join me and some of the True Scrap 5 instructors for an informal get-together on Thursday, Sept. 26. We'll be giving you a tour of the room, answering questions, and even sharing a virtual make-and-take from a previous True Scrap event. And it's free, so sign up and bring a friend!"

Over at Simon Says Stamp their Monday challenge is to use a stamping all star, or go-to stamp. I decided to go with this background stamp from Just Rite. Background stamps are definitely one of my go-to's.
However, I had a hard time making a decision because I have a lot of stamps. So many, it's difficult to remain organized. So I plan to attend this free scrapinar here. It's by Aby Garvy, a professional organizer and hosted by Lain Ehmann, owner of Layout a Day and scrapbooking expert. There is no charge for this event and even if you can't attend live, a replay will be available for a limited time. Check it out!
