~Fantastic news to share...1 Reveal 1 RAK and 1 Anniversary (8 yrs) :)~

I have to take a minute to wish my hubby a happy anniversary
he has been an amazing support for me for many years now,
I am a blessed and lucky woman.
I firmly believe God has given me a gift to cherish and keep me strong.
8 years of marriage and 11 yeas together, still going strong :)


OK!!! I have been DYING to share some fantastic scrappy news!
Please do check it out
RIGHT HERE!
You know how much I love my Helmar glue
they do not pay me to tell you I love them, if I find a product that works
I share with all of you because that is what I do...I love to share anything
in scrapbooking that makes it fun or easier!
Helmar approached me and asked me to be on their Design Team!
I am beyond THRILLED! BEYOND EXCITED!
I am so excited to share this with my blog friends, since you all
have stood right beside me as I travel this scrappy path :)

And on to other fun scrappy goodness...
My next reveal for Scrapbooking From The Inside Out!
This is my next LO
She's Has FIRE!
When they said PASSION was the word not to sound
narcissistic but I thought about myself.
Everything I do has PASSION and when I believe in something I
believe in it 100%! Some people hate me for it, some love me for it, but I
cannot help it, I get excited and I have FIRE!
I am enjoying the new perspective from scrapping pages with these kits!
Anyways, hope you enjoy!

SO I said I would have a great prize when I had 300 followers and
I did not lie I have a GREAT prize!
I have a fun giveaway this week....it is open until Friday...
All you need to do is tell me why you love crafting...

I thought about doing a challenge but then it hit me...
I have always given away RAKS for free on my blog...
as a gesture of goodwill to fellow crafters...it works so I will keep it that way :)

I went to RITZ Camera shop and bought this...
(maybe I should have called in favors form my PC buddies LOL)
Just to giveaway on my blog!
It is a FREESTYLE MOUSE cutting system! It cuts everything from acrylic to
fabric and it's my favorite freestyle cutter :)
Make sure to share the news with your friends...crafting is all about
heart and sharing, thank you for sharing and caring right along side me.

Thank you for popping by!
~Have a BEAUTIFUL Tuesday~
~Pinky~

What a wonderful RAK - and congrats on 300 followers! I just totally love crafting because it gives me a way to express myself through art.

My scrapbooks aren't just our life story, but my art, crafts and creativity show in each and every page.

Congrats! Newish follower so I don't know about this Helmars, so I'll go look for that tutorial. My crafting started in Jr. High (does that term date me?) w/ sewing and knitting. There's always some crafting going on, but the specifics change from year to year. I enjoy the creativity, I enjoy the gifting, and I need something to do when sitting down :)

skurin said...

For me crafting is a way to stay comfortable in my own skin. I love challenging myself with new projects.

Annmaree said...

Great news!!!

I love crafting because is gives me a way to express myself, when I otherwise wouldn't be able to. The good, the bad, the ugly, it can all be tunred into something meaningful and thats what I love about crafting.

smahrty said...

Congrats!!! Just came over from the Helmer blog. look forward to seeing your creative goodness!

Patty said...

Congratulations!!! AND I love that layout:) Fun stuff!!!

Andrea said...

first- what an amazing layout of you- you should hang it in your craft area! congrats on the glue! I have never seen it here before in Canada..maybe I can pay you to mail me some and I will cover all costs, etc?? I need a good glue that doesn't bleed thru the ribbon which is why I don't scrunch very often ;(

I love crafting because its an expression of my soul. I pour myself into my creations and when I give them away I feel I am giving them some of me- in a good way- some good energy being passed on. I craft to share some of the darkness in my life and let it out, to craft some of the love I have in my life and also to celebrate my good days and bad days. I am not artistic but I always wanted to be an artist and I finally found a medium that truly makes me feel special and that I can create things I am proud of :) Most importantly I craft to create special items for my girls and to be able to give them scrapbooks for their familys when they grow up

Bobbi said...

Congratulations! How exciting. Love the layout. Happy anniversary! Thanks for the chance to win some rak.

Tona said...

hi pinky :D Congrats on reaching 300 followers babe. Thats an acheivment in it self. Well for me I love craft as it carry's on from my mum, she is an artist and it absolutely makes her so happy to see me doing my own thing. It also is my way of expressing myself through my creativity, also a great relaxer. I just love seeing peoples reactions to my work and even more so when they receive something from me. Take care xx

fong33 said...

Looks like there are good wishes to be had for many reasons! Congrats on joining the Helmar DT and Happy Anniversary.

I love scrapping because it lets me relive the experiences I have photos of and also create something to keep that memory alive.

KarenB said...

Congrats to you! I craft to capture the memories - whether they be good or bad - for my children to share with their children and so on. It is also a great form of stress relief after a hard day!

Let me start from the top ...

Happy Anniversary - always great to hear that marriage is good for others too ... tee hee ...

Congrats on the Helmar DT ... where do you find the time to complete projects for all these DT's??? WOW!! Very impressive, GF ...

Creating is an outlet for me - shuts down the old brain from thinking too much about everyday problems and de-stresses me bigtime ...

Thanks for offering the RAK ...

Love, Tracy G

Rhonda V. said...

Congrats on becoming part of the Helmar DT!! WOOT!!!

I love papercrafting because it lets any stress from my day evaporate and then I can channel my passion into creating something wonderful and unique.

I am newer to this and it has been nothing less than a complete adventure!

Jenrex4 said...

Crating gives me that release I need from my depression. But unfortuntely when I am in my bleakest moods I can't bring myself to scrap. So sometimes I will take a look back at the pojects I have done, or scan galleries to find ideas for when the fog lifts. Your blog is one I find myself coming to during those dark moments. You make me feel good about myslef again. Thank you.


I am gonna have to try that bra card ;)

Pink Heather said...

Congrats, girl. You deserve it!!!

Ladydoc said...

Congratulations! You are having such fun with your crafting. Great RAK!

Karen AKA Soccerboyzmom said...

Pinky,

I love to craft since it is cheaper than therapy.
