These boots were made for walking!!

This was one of my highlights of Scrapfest on Friday. I only went one day this year and got my fill. Thanks Grandma Jan for taking this photo for me. The gentleman was HOT from head/hair to toe and there were several men in their fancy pants inside of Archivers at the Mall of America. I know this might not be for everyone but it was a nice diversion from the sea of women at Scrapfest and total eye candy. Tami

Scrapfest Begins....October Afternoon!!!

I attended an October Afternoon Crop Thursday evening at Scrapbooks Too (Bloomington) with four of my gal pals. The crop was SO awesome and it was held from 5pm to midnite. I enjoyed meeting John and Kim (owners of October Afternoon). They have been in business for four years and are located in Apple Valley, MN. We are very lucky to have such a fabulous company in our state. Here are projects we completed at the crop.

I am caving and going to the Mall of America on Friday. I just can't help myself. I will have my friend Grandma Jan photograph our October Afternoon goody bag and share that with you soon. Its SO late and I need to get my beauty rest. Scrapfest really gets me on a high. Stay tuned my friends. It's only just begun. Thanks for stopping by.Tami

PS...Here's my ATC (Artist Trading Card) from Wednesday night at Smudges in Chanhassen.

Cosmo Cricket has arrived for Scrapfest!!

Hello friends-
I don't have a working printer at the moment so I can't scan anything new to post. Sorry about that and I know I am a bad blogger. Tonight after our monthly ATC meeting at Smudges I hurried to Bloomington as I wanted to welcome Julie and Lindsay from Cosmo Cricket to Minneapolis (two of my favorite peeps in the industry). I always get really excited when its Scrapfest time at the Mall of America even though I won't be participating in a lot of things I am so grateful for the events I do get to attend. More on that later. Planning on venturing out to the BIG Mall of America on Sunday if all goes well this week. Unfortunately it started raining early today and hasn't really stopped all day. The forecast for the weekend is for a soggy and wet weekend. Oh well, can't control mother nature. I am off to clip some type of photo or image before I press publish. Hey I found a card I recently made. Thanks Grandma Jan for being the best photographer and for saving my you know what. Have a great rest of the week everyone. I will try my hardest to post again soon. I'd like to wish my friend Cindy a very Happy Birthday (on Thursday). Five of us will be attending a crop tomorrow evening. I am sure we will have a blast. Thanks for stopping by and I beg for a little love. Anyone??? Tami

Happy September...a little Halloween treat!!

Hello friends. This was suppose to be ready by Aug. 31 but Blogger has given me lots of problems for two nites now. Recently made the Halloween card and the image is from the UK Pink Petticoats. I love that company. Notice the Tim Holtz tiny stapler. Had to run out and buy it after my friend Donna let me use hers! I got it at Michael's with a 40% off coupon. What kills me is you get a tiny amount of staples with it!! Geez Tim could you spare it? The stapler retailed for 15.99. Expensive little bugger but oh so cool and no regrets. I hadn't been inside a Michael's for like two months. I was weak and caved!!

Back to the card...background paper (Basic Gray) and I swiss dotted the black paper. Happy Friday. Going to spend the day crafting with my friend Sherry at Archiver's.

Thanks for popping by the 'ole bloggie. Tami
