It's been a "challenging" week!

heehee... I mean I've been doing alot of CHALLENGES! ;) Sometimes they get the 'ole mojo flowin'! :)

The Marks Paper Company had a challenge/contest on their blog to recycle something and showcase Mark's paper, so, here is what I came up with!

From this:

To this!

I used Natasja Verbeek's awesome tutorial from the Cosmo Cricket for my flower "bouquet". Love them!

Experiencing Technical Difficulties!!!

I do not enjoy days of being reminded exactly how MUCH I rely on the internet! Did I get alot of scrapping done? Well, YES, but to the detriment of anything online that I usually do! Our modem is post mortem. ;) I am sitting (sweating, fingers sliding off the keys...) at a house we watch in the summer. Swimming in their pool is one thing, but trying to use the internet is another! But, we'll be back up to normal... tomorrow! SHEW! and if THAT were not enough, my camera seems to have "an issue"... not a life threatening one, but either there's something on the lens (which I don't know how, as we are all usually very careful) or the FL humidity was too much for it today. Either way, my pics aren't what I would like them to be! Anyhoo... I had some things to take care of online that were time sensitive, so I thought I'd pop in here for a minute as well. So, what WAS I was doing today???

A little of this:

a touch of this:

a tad of this:

a pinch of this:

and a bit of this:

Just me and some super yummy Bo Bunny... hanging around the house! (with 4 kids... ;) )

Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed day!
