Crazy for Coredinations Cardstock!!!

Okay gals -- I know I've raved about this before but I'm going to rave once again...Coredinations Color-Core Cardstock is FaBULoUs!!! If you are a Cuddlebug enthusiast like me...you must go and get some of this cardstock immediately! It embosses so beautifully and the core colors that emerge when you sand it are SO vivid. Here is a layout that I designed for Anthologies that incorporates Coredinations Black Magic Cardstock. Anthologies has the complete line of Black Magic and also Chocolate Box and it's only .59 cents a sheet. Come in and check them out! I can't wait to design more samples with this awesome product! Such a simple way to add some WOW to your projects! If you are interested in creating this 12x12 double layout, please contact Anthologies at (817) 282-2622 or stop by. You can create this on any of our Creative Buffet dates. You must reserve your class kit 24 hours in advance of your selected Creative Buffet date.
Hope to see create with you soon!

You've been Boo'd!

Have you been boo'd?? This was the project that I created for our October Scrapstasher's meetings. I designed this treat container (an altered Crystal Light container) to fill with treats. It also contains a "You've been Boo'd" poem and instructions on how to keep the Boo'd chain going along with a few more Boo tags (like the one hangin on the lid). To see the poem, please visit the Anthologies Blog. I also posted some pic's of several of the containers made by the Stasher's at our meeting.

Here is how it works...first, you fill your container with sweets or treats...next, you anonymously give it to a friend, co-worker, neighbor, etc. They will then put their boo tag up somewhere (as the poem instructs) for example...like on their front door, on their desk at work, on their scrap bag, etc. That way everyone know that they have been Boo'd. They will remove the treats to keep for themselves and enjoy and then within 2 days they supposed to refill the treat container for someone else and place one of the boo tags on the lid....and give it to the next Boo'd victim...and so on and so on and so on. The fun is watching to see how many of your circle of friends, co-workers, or neighbors get Boo'd by Halloween!

Thanks to all the Stasher's that participated in our October meetings at Anthologies. If you would like to know more about Scrapstasher's or would like to join me us at November's meetings, please visit the Anthologies website or contact the store at (817) 282-2622.

Happy Haunting,
Tracy :)

the littlest Cowboy fan...


I couldn't resist...just had to post these pictures of Kaden in his Cowboys jersey! My son-in-law is a huge Eagles fan so he will be thrilled that I posted these...ha!! We actually keep this little jersey at our house and we put it on Kaden when his Daddy isn't around. Pop is trying very hard to place a Cowboy influence on Kaden at a young age...we'll see if it sticks.
