Oh Happy Day!

So I logged on to my computer this morning to discover that I took third in the Hero Arts Wrap-Around Card Challenge! I know I took third, but I feel like I too first- I've never won anything like this before! I'm a little excited... lol.

I love the scrapbooking community. People are so friendly and giving, it's unbelieveable. In fact, in the last two weeks, I've recieved not one but TWO packages in the mail from wonderful scrapbookers. The first one is from Paris and it's a Parisian Studio kit, and MAN is it loaded with wonderful things! I love the paper, chipboard... everything! Paris is so nice to give me one of her July kits. Thank you!

Also, Sabrina sent me some wonderful goodies for winning COCOA a while back. I can't wait to use everything! (And look at those mints in the bottom right corner... how cute are they?) Take a peak:

Also, I've finished two layouts in the last couple days. I wanted to get more done, but the creativity hasn't been flowing that easily lately. I have got to finish scrapping senior year before going off to college or I know I never will...

First, my COCOA layout with one of my favorite pictures ever. Me and my best friend, Jeb, get a little crazy together:

Supplies: pp- DCWV, cs- The Paper Studio (black and white), brads and overlay- unknown, embossing powder- Ranger, diamond glaze- JudiKins, chipboard letters- Basic Grey, border punch- Fiskars, black pen- ZIG, chipboard flourish- American Crafts

Second, here's my Outside-In Challenge using a guy color scheme for a girly layout. Okay, I think it's a little bit of a stretch, but still like how it turned out. I used a lot of my Parisian Studios kit. Everything in there is so awesome...

Supplies: cs- bazzill, pp- October Afternoon (I'm totally in love!!!), journaling spot- October Afternoon, foam letters- Thickers by American Crafts, ribbon- The Paper Studio, thread- DMC, buttons- American Crafts

Two more things:

I "met" my roommate this week. She seems really awesome the couple times we've talked. I'm getting really excited for college...

I've started this awesome applique for my comforter. It's going to be sweet!

I lied- third thing- I love Project Runway!

Thanks for the instructions on the TW punch. I'm going to go punch a template right now.

I am glad you are enjoying the kit, your layout is so cute!

Wow! That is some fabulous scrappy goodness! Your layouts are cute, too! So...I think I need to know more about this COCOA thing....I see it, but I didn't know if new people could jump in and I don't know what all I would have to do! LOL!
