Scrapbook updates and a Steal!

It's definately Fall and the air is growing crisp with that bite that happens before winter.  I'm getting excited about the holidays too, but I'm also having some very creative bursts of energy right now.  Wish I had the time to sit and do it all but I plan to start this weekend!  I'm going to White Eagle for a scrap retreat with some girlfriends!  We are going to laugh, drink, scrap, make art, gossip and maybe get some good girlfriend pics in!  It's always a blast with these girls!  So, I packed my entire art room (okay maybe not that much but at least half of all my stuff!) and have some projects in mind!  I plan on making layouts, altered items, maybe even work on some necklaces and pins for a craft show coming up.  Whatever my little heart desires.  No kids, no hubby, no responsibilities!  I'm bringing 2 bottles of wine and some creative inspiration!  But before I go, I wanted to leave you a little peek at some of my new creations.  I also have an exciting opportunity for you to steal some Nikki Sivils tomorrow!

Pumpkin using Nikki Sivils Boo-tiful papers.  Tutorial here:
 Some cards that I did with Studio Calico papers and veneer shapes!  This card is a gift card holder upcycling a coffee sleeve from Starbucks!
 Let it Snow card using Studio Calico papers and chipboard shapes!  So cute!  The snowflakes are wooden and colored with DMC Gelatos in Metallic blue!

That's it for now!  I'll be back to post what I made this weekend later.

Tomorrow at 9am there will be a Scrapbook Steal for all of you who love Nikki Sivils papers!  Check it out here tomorrow (Saturday 11/12).   I'm off to scrap the weekend away! Ciao!
