I can't wait to use them! I'll use most of them on cards and maybe a few LOs. The purse came with 5 inserts/plastic pockets and then I have 5 refills and 5 inserts for an 8.5x11 purse that I'll have to buy. They had to include a teaser to buy another purse you know! TFL! :)

I did the curls LO (Crafting LO) for Scrapbook Challenges Sketch 221 (first sketch) and Scrappin'-n-Chattin'. I used a sketch from The Paper Variety (second sketch) for the Hidden Journaling LO (second LO). I love following sketches when I scrap now! It makes me not want to fill up the page even though I almost did on the Curls LO. I love Basic Grey Oliver Collection! I chose the XO's paper for the Curls LO, because it reminds me of cross-stitching. I found these pics in my pics to scrap and thought I might as well scrap them since I still have them! The artwork on the card was black and white in a Rose Art kit of my sister's. I traced it and then colored it with markers. I think I made both cross stitch projects for Christmas presents. The circle is the journaling that tells about who I made each project for. I made the card for my mom's bday, the God is Love cross stitch for Haylee (my stepsister) and the Bless Our Home cross stitch for Emily (my sister). I did frame the God is Love cross stitch, well I matted it to a piece of paper that looks like a house. I just didn't take a picture of the finished project like I did the other one! I've been wanting to scrap the picture of Tyler brushing his teeth, so I decided to use the hidden journaling on this LO. It's under the title and under the paper with the smiley face sticker and water bucket. I wanted to use "Cheese" as the title, or "Say Cheese", but didn't want to use stickers, so I thought "Picture Perfect" fits! I decided to use the monkey paper since he just went to to a Yo Gabba Gabba concert and had his picture taken with Sock Monkey! My dad called my sister and I monkeys when we were little, too, so he should be called a monkey as well, lol! He loves trains so I decided to include train brads on the LO. They're actually meant for laces on sneakers, but they work with brads, too!
I'm going to be helping BigFishFM at MumFest tomorrow with the Kutless concert! I can't wait! I'm going to be selling merchandise! It's been awhile since I've been to a concert. I'll update my blog tomorrow night about the concert. I need to get to bed, it's getting late. TFL!

I used the sketch from Sassy Lil' Sketches (http://sassylilsketches.blogspot.com/) to create this card. I received most of the Christmas bling (red, green, & blue on front as well as the red & green bling on the inside), the Merry Christmas & floral stickers, ribbon, and The Magic of Christmas stamp on the inside from another bottle swap in the mail Friday that I wasn't expecting to get! I love surprise goodies!! I'll be using them on my LOs around Christmas and a few more cards. I love scrappin' with sketches and plan on using a few more in the future!
