~Happy Dance!!! It's the first! Let the reveals begin....*GIVEAWAY too!*~

GOOD MORNING!!!!!!!! I am so excited
I always am on the first of the month.
I have SO MUCH to share this week, but let's just begin with
one project and one new sketch.

Imaginisce has a monthly sketch challenge
every month on the first.
And this is my take on the sketch.
You can play along and WIN! Believe me you want to play
along because you will win big!

On this layout I used the fabric tape form Love My Tapes,
my Cricut Expression and the Accent Essentials cartridge,
the i-rock for the bling on the snowflakes, the i-top
for the flowers and buttons in the middle.
Of course my Helmar V-2 for the glitter on the 3 middle frames.
I pretty much went crazy!
It's not my normal style but I had fun and I really like it!

So go play along with Imaginisce, they love
their fans and they are such a great company!

Now my friend Marci, she is so sweet and fun.
We met in Murfreesboro a couple weeks ago.
you might remember she won a contest from Purple Cows.
Well she brought me a LAMINATOR to give away on my blog!
WOOT WOOT!
Now I have not found this Laminator UNDER 60.00!
So it's a great giveaway!
Thanks Marci!! Her blog is
Pinky loves ya!
Leave a comment and when the comments hit 100
I will do a drawing!

Now please come back tomorrow y'all!
I have a GUEST DT reveal and I need to begin the
new kit reveal for Scrapbooking From The Inside Out! WOOT!!
I have tons of layouts to share,
and the THEME is Enlightenment.

Ok I am off to clean and do all the regular mom/wife stuff!
~Thanks for popping by~
~Have a beautiful day~
~Pinky~

Great layout! If you like that kind of ribbon/fabric feel without having to worry about frayed edges, check out the washi tape at http://shop.torendi.net/. It's a small store, but it rice paper tape (totally sustainable) and looks like see through fabric when you lay it down. Just a thought. BUT thanks so much for a chance to win and Hello! I'm new! :)
