Layouts to Share...

It's been a while since I completed a layout.
I'm excited to get back to playing.

Tallyscrapper.com is doing their
DT search and I'm giving it a shot.
Below are the LOs I've submitted.
I'm so excited.

Chicago, Feb 2010
While taking in the sites I decided
I needed a photo of me on my camera
so I started snapping away!
I got caught, lol!
Joseph was able to snap a photo
of me taking a photo of me.

Vacation, May/June 2010
After visiting the USS Midway in
San Diego we visited the park nearby that
honors our men and women of the military.

My beautiful mom in her 20s.
I love my momma!
I also used Challenge #15's sketch for the lo.

This isn't part of what I turned in,
but I like it just the same and I used
Craftastic Challenge #14's sketch challenge.

Thanks so much for looking!
I hope to share more creations soon!

Craftastic Challenge #15 (6/20-7/15)

I am no longer able to send packages
to international countries.
Participants must be in the US.

Are you ready for challenges?

Here's the details:

Below you'll find 4 challenges.
2 LO Challenges, 1 Card Challenge and 1 Altered Item Challenge.
You are not being asked to do all challenges, though.

For each Challenge you submit to me your name will be
entered into a "raffle" for the monthly RAK.
So if you do one challenge you will be entered once, do 4
then you'll be entered 4 times.
This is just a way to Challenge you and give you the chance
to try new techniques.
If you have suggestions on RAKs or Challenges let me know
and I'll be more than happy to try to incorporate them.

Layout Sketch
For this one just follow the sketch and make it your own at the same time.
This Sketch is brought to you by the talented Becky Fleck of www.Pagemaps.com.

Updates, Email, Blog Guests

I haven't forgotten about the Blog world I promise!
I've been very busy with the Tupperware Business
as well as the new scrapbooking venture.

Just a few Updates for you.

You can now subscribe to
"Leading a Craftastic Life" via Email!
Just click for the link on the top left hand
column and a new window will open where you
can enter your email address. An Email will
be sent to you to confirm your subscription,
make sure to click that link!
Emails will only be sent to you if I have
made a post on the blog. No Post no Email!

Because I've been so busy crafty stuff
hasn't exactly been going on around here.
There's a few things but not much.
I'll be posting them soon.
So I was thinking it's time to open
the Blog up for a weekly Blog Guest.
As a Blog Guest you can share a tutorial
or even a recent project.
To enter your idea please email
(you can find it on the side bar) me with
a written "blog post" that you would like
to see here as well as photos of your project.
Each week I'll pick a new Blog Guest and
their post will be put up every Friday.
No prizes just another way
to put your projects out there.

I'm so excited about the Tupperware Business
and would like to share with you my site link.
Just Click on the box and it'll take you there.
Another link is on the left column.

This week is the Tile Coaster Class.
I'll be posting every one's finished tiles
On Monday next week :)!

Thank you all who still come
one over to check out the blog.
It means so much to me!

Right now I'm in the process of re-organizing
my clear stamps so I'll be back with a post
soon with photos and how I did it.
Happy Scrappin'!
