~Happy Crafty Hump Day & Fun Giveaways Too!~

Good morning all my fun crafty friends,
I am so happy to be here today!!!

Can you believe I almost missed the Dirty Scraps challenge
this week? *phew* with the blog hop I plum forgot,
but yesterday morning I sat down and made my layout.
The challenge is MOVING ON UP
Moving On Up-
We all have life experiences that define us whether they be good or bad.
Even the bad experiences help us to grow and move on.
I have to say I have had my share of so called friends who
just use me for one reason or another, whether it be money,
childcare, to get ahead, for sympathy...you know, we have all had
people in our lives like this. Then they treat you like garbage.
Lately I have had my share. :)
Sometimes you just finally see it one day, and have to move on.
This is my take on the challenge.
Turning it all into art.
Can you believe only one person entered last time?
We have all these great prizes, you should totally do the challenge!

Ok enough of my chattering...I have a FUNNNNNN FUN
GIVEAWAY! I think I have shared recently a company
that makes shimmery mist named a mist after me
It is this crazy fun friend of mine who just opened a store
in Missouri. She sent me some samples and they are so cool,
but my favorite part? They are the same size as the regular shimmer
mists companies but ONLY 3.99!!!!!!!!!!! Hello 3.99!!!!!!
My kind of Shimmer Mist, and its called Ba Da Bing Bling.

I LOVE it, it is way more shimmery then some other brands.

Anyways she sent me 2 bottles to GIVEAWAY!
*YES one is Hot Pink Momma!*
Here is the website where they sell it.
Here is the Facebook page.
Leave a comment here letting me know you checked them out
and I will enter you in for a random drawing....
someone will win 2 bottles!
*I would LOVE for you to "LIKE" them*
Because the more you like companies and follow them
the more goodies they give me to give to you!

And just wait...I have one more GIVEAWAY
Clear Scraps is having a Halloween contest...
why have you not entered??
I think that you should go FOLLOW their blog
and come back here and tell me, and I will
enter you in for a special Clear Scraps GIVEAWAY!
An acrylic/chipboard Mixable album!
I bet we can even get a couple sheets of 12X12 Clear Scraps pages
thrown in, what do you think? I love my acrylic!
Just in time for the holidays.
I am teaching a class on this album in November at the
Scrap Room in Mt. Juliet TN. You will LOVE this album!

So, two FUN giveaways, shimmer mists and acrylic WOOT!
I hear tell I will be giving away alot more of the
Clear Scraps is the turn out is good...just sayin'.
So make it good!!!! :)

I am off to rest today, yesterday was so crazy with the
horrid weather and they even called us to pick up the kids from school.
~Happy Hump Day my friends~
~Thanks for popping by to say hello~
~Pinky~

Love the layout and the journaling is perfect! Seeing the good in others is a gift and it's to bad that the others don't believe in themselves enough to stop being users. I still think everyone going "pink" for a day would be a whole lot of fun :D

Becky said...

I am so in love with that mini album!!! The ideas are flowing. And what a beautiful shade of pink :)

Erika said...

Tona said...

I "liked" memories2embellish on Fb. I also checked out her store. She has some really nice colors in those shimmer mists.
I followed clearsnaps too.

Ms. Jen said...

I love your layout! The journaling says it all. It's sad that we have to deal with people like this but if it makes us stronger because of it....so be it! I'm off to check out that shimmery mists. I've been looking for some.

Marianne - Fiskateer #6701 said...

Your LO really says a lot. I think people who tend to look for good in everyone do get burned in "friendships" a lot. Have to say, I have been there and have had to move on myself a few times. It hurts, but it does feel good when you move on and know it was your choice to do so and you did the right thing.

I went to both blogs and checked out your friends other colors of Ba Da Bling Bling. Love that she named a color for you. Saw that she posted about that on FB - where I "liked" her.

Thanks again for everything you share - not just your art, but the personal things you have gone through that can help the rest of us grow.

Jingle said...

Pinky, this is awesome stuff! A great layout, for starters and then great giveaways! Hey...I was just checking out the mists, but I can't seem to find the cost of shipping. I am loving the color choices!

Tiffany Leola Johnson Koehn said...

Tiffany Here, From Memories 2 Embellish, Just wanted to add that shipping is Priority Mail $4.95! Shipping to Canada from what I can tell will be in the neighborhood of $12.00. My Hubby (the website designer) is working to get that added to the website, but for now you can send us your order and will send you a paypal payment request!
memories2embellish@gmail.com for orders or if you have ANY questions! I stalk my inbox lol!! So reply will be pretty much Immediate!

Amy said...

Love that page Pinky and the shimmers are gorgeous! Lovin that pink and also love that pumpkin spice, poinsettia, ocean blue,...I could go on and on! Thanks for the introduction to a great product. I "Like " them too!

Vicki said...

Great layout Pinky. Thanks for putting into words what we all need to say.

Great LO and journaling is so real. I checked out your friends website and will think about getting some of their mists as I have been waiting for the right mists to purchase. Like their colors.
