You all up for a Challange??

Hi all. How is everyone doing? I've been thinking about doing something fun! I gave "Abbie"(one of my doodles) as a gift after my Ustream class. Now Im thinking I want to make her the center of attention and challange you guys to use her. (that sound bad huh? lol)

Here is what I'm thinking...print Abbie, resize her, color her in, cut her out and use her on one of your projects...a card, a layout, a mini, you name it. Post her to you blog, were you will tell the world where you got Abbie from of-course :)  You will then come back to my blog and link your ABBIE post to my blog so that Krystal and Brandi  can vote. (I can't vote cause I LOVE everyones projects!!! I've always been awful at deciding!), anyway, I think I should have some rules and a prize no?

ok Rules~
  1. Use "Abbie" -- lol a gimmie!
  2. Must be your own project - you hubby cant help you!
  3. Do a post on your blog about Abbie and how you created your project, what products you used.
  4. Mention where you got Abbie on your blog... (http://www.justafewdesigns.blogspot.com/) yeah man give me kuddos! heehee
  5. Grab my Button and post on your blog.
  6. Use InLinkz to link  your project...this is so I can find it and go check it out! :)
  7. Leave me a comment to this post!!!
  8. and THIS IS THE MOST IMPORTANT ONE....HAVE FUN!!! :) Im excited!!
Now the prize...The winner of my challange will win a pink Cancer Awarenes Xyron Sticker Maker!




Ok now here is ABBIE...just right click and save her to your pc then print her out...easy right?? I sure hope this works! lol  (Once again this is my first time trying anything like this, so please standby! lol)

OH NO! WHERE DID It Go???????

Hi all..well today was the day!! I held my first USTREAM class. And just as I suppected I was nervous as all get out! I had over 50 RSVP's and according to UStream stats 141 watched! WOW! I am so greatful! I was sooooooo nervous, I was shaking...but the group of ladies that attended the class were just wonderful and within minutes I felt comfortable. 
My "Love Wrap Around Mini" was a bit more intense that I had anticipated, but at the end everyone had been able to follow along.  I had great ladies that did some measurement convertion for me and I was even able to help some of the spanish speaking ladies!!! It was just a blast! THANK you all for making my first time such a successful event!
The One horrible thing that did happen...........was that.............UStream did NOT record!!!!!! I am just besides myself! I know for a fact I hit the RECORD button. As a matter of fact, I had to click on STOP RECORDING when the show ended, so I know it was recording. Now, where is the video??? I DONT KNOW!!! I am so sorry. The only thing I can think is that at the begining of the show I had a few problems getting the video to stream...and had to refresh several times until it finally worked. I don't know if that had something to do with it or not. But, I know there is no way I can do this mini on Youtube 15 min wont even touch the first part of this...I will try to figure out a way to get the directions to those that want them. I'll think of something! I promise. Hopefully my next show will record!!
THANKS AGAIN AGAIN LADIES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

uStream...I scream...we all scream for USTREAM!!!

OK ...LADIES!!! I have scheduled and event on UStream...my first class ever!!!!!!!!!!!! And I am nervous, nervous, nervous!!! There will be NO "cut!"  no "redos", no "oopps I said a cuss word lets do over!!!" lol Plus I hope I have peeps show up and I dont end up sitting there alone!!!
I have scheduled the Love Mini Wrap Around technique to show you guys 1st. You will have to bare with me while I adjust cameras, do sound check and take a minute to stop shaking! lol   Its scheduled as
:Wrap Around Mini
 :at 6:00 PM - 9:00 PM CST
I put 3 hours - just cause - I have NO idea how long it will take, but I can almost bet it won't take 3 hours!! My projects are always easy and quick.

Won't you ALL join me??? all 198 of you!?!?  if you havent seen the video of the mini  click HERE<<<<

YOU WILL NEED...
  • GLUE
  • 3 Sheets of papers 12x12 coordinating colors. My book is made using Bazzil papers, no  patterned paper was hurt in the  making of this mini! lol But it would look awesome with patterned paper I'm sure.
  • paper cutter
  • scissors
  • circle punch ...a 1inch or so will do
  • something to score with (score pal or what ever you use)
  • These supplies will make the base mini only, no embellishment at this time.
I will show you how to create the mini itself and if time permits we can embellish it, but I'm thinking you all can work your own magic on that.  If ALL goes well the next Ustream class will be on the ever so requested TAG MINI ALBUM... you can see it  HERE<<<<  I got so sick right after I posted this mini, that I never got around to doing a tutorial.  I will have everything you need to create a mini that looks just like mine available as a kit, so look out for it.  The Tag Mini and this Wrap Around Mini have been two of my most requested  minis! And now they are coming to a URL near you!!  :)
Ok well remember
this SATURDAY at 6pm Central Time, that is Januray 29tt at 6pm!

I was so surprised!

I have been so busy with the baby since Krystal's been sick that I didnt have time to THANK Vicky at
http://stickyvickycrafts.blogspot.com/  She had some candy and I won it! She was so sneaky about it though, she sent it in care of Krystal so I had no idea it was coming!!!! I opened it and went thru everything over at Kat's house!! I don't see how most wait to open the packages. I see a taped package and  I just have to tear into it.  Vicky I can't thank you enough...the charms and crystals are just beautiful...well everything was and ohhhhh the butterflies!!! THANK AGAIN GIRL...I appreciate it.

Print out for you guys...

Hi all...its was such a great day today! The type of day my Krystal loves, rainy, cloudy and dark! lol But it wasn't cold!! yay!  So I was working  with my PSP earlier to day and made a Valentine sheet that I want to share with you guys...but not sure how to  upload it, for you guys to download! lol So I'm gonna post the  image and maybe if you right click and save it to your pc you can then print it? If anyone knows how to do this let me know...and if you just right click it and print it and it WORKS let me know! lol  I thought this imags would be cool to print, cut and use on  your creations.  I did this page at a high resolution so you can resize them...Please leave me a comment if you use these.

Boo! I'm back!

Hi ladies!! I KNOW! I've been gone so long I bet some of you thought you got rid of me huh? lol I have been super busy for a week or two now, and  I think for a while there I was lost in a mountain of paper and ribbon!! I cleaned out my craft room! I actually found paper I didn't know I had!!! It took for ever to get that done. My darling husband helped me move my massive desk around, I added an antique desk to house my laptop and my cricut and I sorted all my paper, ribbon, buttons and flowers! So now I cant find anything!!! lol  I love my new area, the room looks and feels bigger and Im so excited about creating. I have started a new mini album using a new fold I dream't 'bout.  I hope you all like it, almost done embellishing it so look out for my video coming soon to a blog near you! lol
Talk to you ladies soon.
