ONLY for One MORE DAY…

Hey, everyone!
Can you BELIEVE it’s the last day of February?
I definitely can’t-and have TONS to do this Monday so I’ll make this short and sweet-but I couldn’t let the rest of the month go by without reminding you about the FABULOUS Key Ingredients Kit from Taylored Expressions this month!
Are you familiar w/the Key Ingredients subscription program?  Each month, Taylor puts together a GORGEOUS array of cardstock, patterned paper from the latest and greatest lines, and matching ribbon/embellishments and boxes it all up along with exclusive idea sheets, access to the Key Ingredients gallery, and a one-time 10% off offer each month!  
You’d be surprised at just HOW many creations can come from ONE months’ kit!  Not only that, but the BRAND NEW Key Ingredients BLOG features almost an entire week of samples and product spotlights so your mojo will get an awesome head-start!
I have another card using one of my favorite new TE sets, “New Beginnings”.  I love this verse:
“Only as high as I can reach can I GROW,
Only as far as I SEEK can I GO.
Only as deep as I LOOK can I SEE,
Only as much a I DREAM can I BE…”
SO beautiful and true, isn’t it?  I addaed some flowers and ADORABLE epoxy brads from the My Mind’s Eye “Lush” line, ALL included (You get a WHOLE PACK!) in this month’s kit….so HURRY!  Last day to order!  Tell Taylor I sent ya :)
Have a HAPPY Monday, everyone!

A Saturday at the Beach!…

Sigh…
DON’T.  I. WISH!

{{{oh-BY the WAY…if you are looking for my CLAUDIA & CO. BLOG HOP post, please just scroll down one post, thanks!!!}}}

Haha nope not going on any tropical vacays but it’s time for a Saturday Sketch at Club Anya & Friends along with a preview of a BRAND NEW stamp…

CHEEKY BEACH!

She’s a tropical dream w/ her wavy flowing hair, cute vintage suit and fancy schmancy hibiscus in her hair!   I’m hoping she’ll wiggle her nose and teleport us to Maui…but I won’t hold my breath ;)

She WILL be able to visit YOU though, beginning March 1st when she’s released, along with Twirl Anya and the ONE-DAY presale of the new Creepin’ Kit!  Exciting stuff!

Here’s the sketch for this week at Club Anya & Friends:

Well, I’ll be back later with a fun Stamping Bella card but for now, be sure to visit:

Thanks and see you soon!

Hip Hoppin’ with LOTS to share!…

HOLLA!  It’s Thursday!
Time to HIP HOP.
Time to share LOTS of excitement!
First of all, tonight is the big night-the NUGGETS basketball banquet.
I am SO. SAD. that our season is over.  I so wish for my boys that B-ball was YEAR ROUND-
it is their favorite thing in the world…and since they are two of MY favorite things in the world,
I LOVE to watch them.  HAPPY. Thriving.  Determined.  SMILING.
Our coach this year is very special to us.
Three practices into the season, the coach they SHOULD have had…well, up and disappeared. Poof. Quit.  Just like that.  We were pretty upset…
While I don’t know the whole story, I DO know that you don’t do that to eight year old boys.  They were devastated.  Til this one Dad stepped in.  And ended up being the BEST. COACH. EVER.
So, for my first project today-here’s the Chipboard album that I made-that we’ll be presenting to him tonight at the banquet:
I used the stamps from the “Champ” set for many of my pages:
(Champ is available as a Stampin’ Store kit-and not on the Unity website. For a list of stores, click HERE)

I also used the Itty Bitty stamp called “Tell Me More” to create this page:
There are no Unity stamps on this page, but that is MY BOY shooting a free throw-so had to include it, haha :)
Last but not least, another page created with the CHAMP set:
And here’s the back cover, with the pennant stamped again saying “Thanks Coach”.  My boys signed it for the coach already and I will be bringing it for the rest of the team to sign before we give it to Coach Brian!    
I have ONE more project to show you, but before I do, can I TELL YOU how stoked I am that our first NEW UNITY CHALLENGE is catching on so well?  I am THRILLED!  We have over 40 players so far and you guys have until March 14th to play along!  WOO HOO!
And SPEAKING of CHALLENGES?  Last but not least?  Today is a NEW Hip Hop Sketch challenge:
And here’s a quick little fluttery creation I made using up some October Afternoon scraps (do you catch that this week as a theme?  I am USING. SCRAPS.  Hooray! Gotta prepare for some YUMMALICIOUS new CHA releases and the only way I can justify that is to use up what I have-I’m proud of myself ;) 
The stamp is a new “Itty Bitty”-do you know that there’s a NOT SO ITTY BITTY sale going on at Unity right now?  Buy THREE Itty Bitties, get ONE free…and so on…buy SIX, get two free…you see where this is going!  SO you can scoop up this adorable “Dream Big” stamp along with SEVEN PAGES of other CUTIE PATOOTIES!   
Next Blog
Make sure to visit the UNITY BLOG for other news, and then it’s onto my pal Jimmi’s blog next!  
have a WONDERFUL Thursday, everyone!
