I am sorry this contest is only open to USA and Canada
I am cleaning out my stuff and I have an huge envelope of diecuts and stickers that I don't use and probably never will use. Instead of throwing them away I want to give my wonderful cyber friends a chance to win them. The diecuts are far from fancy I have had some of them since I started scrapbooking. They are all in usable quality (they are not bent or damaged).
4 photo frames
2 gray side mounts
3 vacation themed mats
14 diecuts (2 USA maps, 2 kites, bird, camcorder, jeep, 7 different colors/size cameras)
1 small file folder
2 stickers of fish (received at an exhibit at the fair)
To enter all you have to do is a post about where your family will be vacationing this summer or if your not vacationing this year, where is your favorite place to vacation. I will pick a winner Sunday night (May 4) at 8:00 Eastern Time. In ALL messages please put your name and email address so I can contact you.
Thank you for viewing my blog and good luck!!!

It's Sunday Scrappin once again. The days and weeks have been flying by lately. If you haven't checked out Sunday Scrappin I suggest you do, you will be glad you did. It's a wonderful group of crafters who share their TA Da's (Completed Goals) and their TA Do's (weeks goals). The great thing is there is no pressure if you don't complete the goals, and everyone in the group is very supportive.
I put all the pictures onto CD for my BIL and SIL from the kids birthday party last week. I made them a cute cover to hold the CD. I mailed the package out on Thursday and you will never believe what I did. I was so worried about the cover I forgot to put the CD in the cover. You will notice in the picture the CD is in the holder while I took it out to make sure the pictures did actually go onto CD and they were all flipped correctly and I forgot to put it back in the case. On the bright side they loved the case I made. LOL! http://chrissyscreativespot.blogspot.com/2008/04/cd-cover.html
This card I actually made last week but shared it this week (couldn't post until I gave it to my sister). I actually forgot to give it to her last weekend. I'm on a roll lately LOL! http://chrissyscreativespot.blogspot.com/2008/04/dog-sitting-thank-you-card.html
This card I made for DH just because http://chrissyscreativespot.blogspot.com/2008/04/just-because.html
I want to scrapbook at least 2 layouts this week
I have 2 birthday cards I need to make
I have a card idea that I want to make, it's for no particular occasion
Bonus Question Do you buy patterned paper just because you like it, or because you have something specific in mind? I am so bad with this, I tend to buy paper for no reason other then one day I'm sure I'll have a need for it or it's just so pretty. Another down fall of mine is if they have patterned paper on clearance I must have 4 sheets of each because I don't want to go to do a layout and think oh that paper I saw at X would be perfect to find out they no longer carry it. I'm sure when Jeff (my husband) sees this post he will have a comment for sure.

It's Sunday so that means it's time to post my week's Ta Da's and week's To Do's. As I have told you before week after week Sunday scrappin is a wonderful group, you need to check it out if you haven't already.
This past week I didn't think I would get anything done craft wise because I was working overtime every day and then we went to CT for the weekend. We had a wonderful time in CT, our niece and nephew are to adorable, we will be taking many more trips to visit them. I am glad everyone is talking again and getting along, it's wonderful. Back on track - here are my Ta Da's for the week (I'm impressed I got these done).
My BIL and SIL loved and I can't stress the word love enough the scrapbook pages (I made 2 of each page 1 for them and 1 for us)
Right now my Ta Do is to go to bed I'm beat (LOL)
Get all the birthday pictures from this past weekend onto CD
Mail a set of the pictures to my SIL and BIL
Make at least one scrapbook page
Where is your favorite place to get craft supplies? I really don't have a favorite craft store. I usually go to either Joann's, Michaels, or Joann's if they are having a sale then I love to go there especially if its a good sale.

It's my favorite part of the week (well besides Friday at 4:30 when I get off from work). It's Sunday Scrappin time where you have a great opportunity meet other talented crafters and you post your Ta Da's (goals completed in the previous week) and your Ta Do's (goals you want to complete this week). It's a great group and there is no pressure. Check it out, you'll be glad you did.
My Ta's Da's:
First I want to say I'm a little upset on my Ta Do's for last week I mentioned I wanted to do a scrapbook page. I ordered the ink from Dell so that I could print out my pictures the ink came and then I misplaced it. I finally went to sit down the other night and do a page I had everything out and I couldn't find the ink. Jeff helped me look no where could it be found. Guess what we found today.....yup the ink.
It's that time of year where there is a birthday coming up every time you turn around, or an anniversary or something that you need a card for. So this past week I mad several more cards. I made my sister a Thank you card because she will be dog sitting this coming weekend but I can't post that one just yet. I have 2 to share: Get Well Card http://chrissyscreativespot.blogspot.com/2008/04/get-well-card.html
Thank you card http://chrissyscreativespot.blogspot.com/2008/04/get-well-card.html
My Ta Do's
This week will be a quiet week because I have to work overtime all week and then at the end of the week we are going to CT for our niece and nephews birhtday party.
This week's question:
What's your least favorite project that you've done lately, and why? My most recent project that I made and I am not liking is this card http://chrissyscreativespot.blogspot.com/2008/04/tool-box-for-father.html it could be the colors but I'm just not pleased with it at all. I redid the card in different colors and style and it is much better.

It's Sunday Scrappin time once again! I love this group! It's a start of a new week and new craft goals. Sunday Scrappin is a wonderful group because on Sunday (or Monday if you didn't get to it Sunday LOL) you post your Ta's Da's (goals you accomplished in the past week) and you list your Ta Do's (goals for this week) and it helps to keep you focused and on track but if something comes up during the week and you didn't keep your goals there is no pressure and you don't get banned from the group. LOL! Be sure to check out Sunday Scrappin its a wonderful group.
Now on with the show. Last week I set a goal of making a card or two and I wanted to do a scrapbook card. Let's just say I made a card or two a day. I had to make 2 kids birthday cards one for a girl (that was cake being that I have a sister the same age as the girl and I'm used to making cards for girls) and a boy card (that was a task). Here are the links to my Ta Da's (sorry no scrapbook page :( but I made 9 cards
http://chrissyscreativespot.blogspot.com/2008/04/tool-box-for-father.html (this one I don't care for)
This weeks To Do's:
*I want to make a scrapbook page
*Maybe make another Mother's Day card similar to the one I made already but in a different color
*Make a thank you card for my sister who will be dog sitting next weekend while we go to CT for a weekend trip
This weeks Bonus question: What kind of projects do you do the most often?
It's that time of year where birthday's are popping up everywhere. I must say I do a lot of birthday cards and scrapbook pages. Then second to that would be scrapbooking our dog Buddy.

I was not pleased at all with the first card that I made. This is the type of stamp that is gorgeous has is and doesn't need all the pattern paper and bling. I kept thinking no way can I give that card to my father. So I have been doing nothing but thinking about this card...well okay I have been thinking of a card idea for a 10 year old boy also. I am pleased with the way this card came out, this one is a keeper.
Paper is from Colorbok Jewel Paper Pack
Stamps: SU For Father and SU Warmest Regards (no longer available - was a hostess set in 2006)
