American Idol Sadness....

Yes, It has taken me a week to sort of get over my Idol Sadness. For the record I voted for Adam. Every Week I voted for Adam. The most votes I ever did on a Tuesday night was 141 votes...all for Adam.

On the final Tuesday I voted for Adam.

Wednesday I was SO excited because I knew that Adam would win!

Wednesday night the winner was announced and it wasn't Adam.

Friends have told me why Adam didn't win....I guess I was among the minority in my small group. The friends said that "America" wanted somepme who was Clean Cut...well that's not Adam. But, Adam has style and talent and that is what I was looking at!

I REALLY want to go see the American Iodl tour when it comes to Dallas in July (the 23rd)...but I'll be in Florida then. Didn't think about that when I was making my travel plan. I DID think of driving down to Tampa to see him on the 28th...but that's the day before I come back home. All I can do is hope that Adam will be back in Dallas (or close to it!) sometime in the near future.

Adam will be my American Idol! Okay dd's too! Okay, so my husband voted for him too....ALL of us! And when Adam goes on tour I will be there. Now I am off to Cafe' Press to purchase my Adam Lambert T-Shirt, and yes...I have also already joined's Official Website.

Rusty Pickle Design Team Contest Update...

I thought I would post a reminder about the "Rusty Pickle Amazing Race"

From the RPDT Blog...

We have made just one change in the way we would like you to submit your entries. We have had a lot of questions regarding combining 6 images into one for the mini-album, so we decided to make things easier on everyone! The following should be submitted:

1 image of your 2-page layout

1 image of your altered project

6 different images of your mini album

Each image should not exceed 500K. All 8 images should all be included in ONE email with your name in the subject line.

Submit your entries to

The deadline for entry remains the same - Sunday May 31st at 12 noon Mountain Standard time.

Just a reminder - the mini album must be 8x8 or smaller and contain at least 6 finished pages. Projects must contain 100% Rusty Pickle product to qualify. (You may use paint, ink, thread, pens, cardstock, etc. Just make sure if RP makes a version of something, you use that. For example, Rusty Pickle makes bling, so use that instead of another manufacturer's. Rusty Pickle does not manufacture paint, glimmer mist, ink, thread, pens, etc. so you are okay to use those items on your projects.)

Hope that clears up some confusion! Please let us know if you have any further questions. We can't wait to see your entries!

First things First.....


It's my dad's Birthday...well it was yesterday! (May 18th). And yes, I sent him a card, not handmade though!

Hope you had a great day Georgie!!!

Three New Projects....

Yes, it's been awhile! Lots of stuff going on... (some scrapbook related and lots that's not scrapbooking related) Here are a few projects that I have completed in the past month.

The first photo is of a card that I made. This was fun! Everything is ink and pop-dotted. The Inside of the card reads "We're so Happy to Have to You Home! To be honest, the card looks a LOT better in person! I don't have anyone to send the card to, so I think I'm just going to put it on display in my room. Sometimes it's just fun to make things!

This is a wall hanging that I made. The paper inside of the box has little houses that are pop-dotted. I decided at the last minute to pop dot the ones on the outside. There is a sheet of acrylic that is in between the base and right behind the frame that is holding the "Home Sweet Home". The mini-clothespins were sprayed with glimmer mist and then had Stickles put on them.

This is a layout that I created especially for CKC Houston. I decided to enter a few contest while I was attending and this layout was for the "Inspiration" Layout Contest. Guess won first place! I also made a card for the Papercrafts Birthday Card Contest but I didn't take a photo of it...too bad...they have it. And won Second Place in the contest. I really wish I had taken a photo of that card....and to make matters worse I don't have any of the paper that I used to make another one...gotta find that paper!
Have a great weekend!
