I must admit I have never before been paid to scrapbook a LO!!! So it was a big surprise when my district manager asked me to create a LO for her to give to her mom for christmas, then gave me carte blanche to do whatever i felt like .The only stipulation ...all 5 pics had to be on the same page!!!I had to do alot of thinking but was pleased with the final result.My district manager must have been too..she paid me 40$ for it!!!!sorry the pic isn't as clear as i'd like but i took it in the frame.

APOS! Blog hop!!!!

Hello everyone!!!! Today our Design Team at A PILE OF SCRAP! is having our first ever blog hop and I am so excited !!!! Since we are not having a reveal this month, we all felt that we still wanted to share a little of our creativity with you AND get the chance to wish you and your family a very Merry Christmas! And since we are in the giving season, make sure that you leave a comment here on my blog and follow the links on each of the girl's blogs for a chance to win a scrappy prize!

Cori-lyn(AKA Icecheeks)created two lovely sketches for us to use .I must say that she out did herself! We were all given a card sketch and a layout sketch and we could choose to do either or both and I opted to do both because what is Christmas without a little pressure?

Your next destination on the bloghop is Jen! Make sure you hop on over and have a look at her creations too!

Candy Cane Favours!!!

A friend asked me to make 16 tags to go on candy canes for her child's class.I have never done such a thing but i came up with these using my new snow friends cartridge .She liked them and so did her son .i sure hope the class enjoyed them.


My turn to post a product challenge at APOS! What to do that hasn't been done?........GLITTER!!! BIG MISTAKE!! I still have red glitter everywhere!I just don't get along with messy product but since i own it I might as well use it.I did the ring around me with glue and glitter on CS then put glossy accents to ensure it stayed on !!! A co-worker had jokingly called me head grinch and I remembered I had grinch paper!!!!


A few cards i made!

APOS! Photoswap

The month of november I hosted a LO photoswap where the girls scrapped someone else's picture .The completed LO will be given to the owner of the pic.They all did a fabulous job and everyone will be lucky to receive such a great LO .I scrapped a pic belonging to funnygal .it was a picture of her daughter and the only journalling given to me was ...a pic of my daughter Sarah taken at a friends wedding this summer .I have never scrapped a sepia pic before bit I do love my results.I totally scraplifted a LO by tinamcd on LCOM.


The month of December has been a very busy one for me and i just haven't been keeping up with my blog or even my scrapping. For APOS! design team I was given christmas paper from Fancy pants and asked to create cards/tags .Cards are definately not my forte and this paper absolutely freaked me out!!!When it got down to the wire and it came time to reveal i had to jump right in to complete a few .i don't mind the results .I sure admire those who can create beautiful cards .They sure take talent!!!
