Hooray for Friday!

Ahhhhhh. As the alarm went off today, I struggled to open up my peepers but thought, thank God I can attempt to sleep in tomorrow! Sleep is good. Oh so good.

Ok so I have TONS of scrappy stuff to post, so beware, lots of links and scrappy goodness coming up.

First up, today is my first post at Lotus Paperie. Challenge #149 is to Use a Coffee Filter on a Page!
The immediate thing that came to mind was a flower, and apparently I wasn't the only one LOL. You have to see how many cool coffee filter flowers lots of the gals came up with! Each one of them is unique and fabulous in their own way. Here is my layout:

Every Monday, I clean my coffee maker out by running vinegar through it. I used the left over vinegar soaked filter and my Shimmerz Spritz in Plum Pudding and Rock-a-fella Blue and sprayed the filter while it was still wet. This helped the paints to blend into each other AND I think the vinegar helped keep the color nice and bold, but this could just be my imagination LOL

If you want to play along and have some fun with coffee filters, go brew a pot and play along! Check out what the Lotus Paperie team came up with!

Next up.....Who likes GIVEAWAYS? Heck, I think we all do! Well you better head on over RIGHT NOW to the Webster's Pages blog and leave a comment because the drawing is TODAY! You could win one of our FABULOUS Magnetic Expressions Design Boards. I created this Menu Board but there are ENDLESS possibilities here with this product!

You can create cute little magnets by using our new Cameos and a gluing a little magnet to the back. Takes all of 1 minute to make some super cute! These would make great little gifts for grandma!

Cool Class Alert: my long time friend and fellow Scarlet Lime DT member, May Flaum, is teaching a new class at Big Picture Scrapbooking! Adventures In Scrapbooking:Using Kits is going to highlight several differnt kit clubs (including the rocking Scarlet Lime kits!) and show you how to get the most use out of YOUR kits! Pammy Mac, this one just screams your name LOL!

And I can't finish this blog post without putting a few of my fave pics up from Halloween. Zoe was a crazy scary yet oh so cute Vampiress.

Ok so that is it. Go have a creative and wonderful Friday all :)
