Life is changing...

Have you ever had that feeling that life is completely changing? There's nothing you can do about it- just sit back and watch it change before your eyes. You are never the same. Life is never the same. That's how I feel right now.

And I have to say, it's not necessarily a bad feeling.

I have a couple things to share with you today, so prepare yourselves!

1. Pamela is giving away a Scarlet Lime August project kit. Her mini album that she did with it is awesome! Good luck :). Here's a link to her blog.

2. Altered letters for my roommate, Gretchen, and myself:

Supplies: paper mache letters- Hobby Lobby, embossing powder and ink- Ranger, stamps- Autumn Leaves and Scrappy Cat, rub-ons- The Paper Studio, ribbon- Offray, Adornments by EK Success, unknown, thread- DMC, paint and button-unknown

3. COCOA challenge for this week. We had to use a lot of scraps. I really like how this layout turned out (plus, who knew I could write like that? I'm pretty amused by that.):

Supplies: pp- KI Memories (blue and grey stripe), My Mind's Eye (blue floral) and Basic Grey (everything else), cs- Bazzill, chipboard- Basic Grey and Heidi Swapp, white pen- Sakura, grey pen- ZIG, white ink- Tsukineko, green button bows- from this store - this item

4. Quick layout I whipped up for color inspiration challenge #19: (this is also a scraplift of Cheryl Overton from the CKMB- her layout was so cute that I had to replicate it!)

Supplies: pp- KI Memories, cs- American Crafts (grey), Bazzill Basics (blue) and The Paper Studio (white), ink- StazOn by Tsukineko, letter stickers- Scrapworks (black) and The Paper Studio (white), chipboard brackets- Basic Grey

Okay, enough excitement for today. I have this morning off of work in order to start packing and so far I have not done any... Oops. I'll start after lunch ;). I can't believe I leave on Tuesday (that means Jamba juice in 4 days! :) )and move in on Wednesday. Good thing I start classes the day after Labor Day- that seems like enough time to adjust. I'll be back!
