Sneak Peek at my Christmas cards and Friday Faves!!

Happy Friday, everyone!
Are you excited for the weekend?
I am!
We have baseball tournaments and a Halloween party
I can't wait for the party, I love dressing up!
I won't reveal what my costume is but I will give you a small hint... I will be wearing a dress
I know, that's a dead giveaway, right?! :)

I have been busy creating with Cosmo Cricket's new "Jolly by Golly" line
I just love it! They never fail to hook me with each of their lines, I can't think of a single one I don't like!
Here is a fun layout I did last night
I misted the whole paper with Frozen Lake Glimmer Mist
I also outlined all of the swirls with Stickles in "Diamond"
(one of the best colors Stickles has in my opinion, so versatile!)

I won't share all of my cards quite yet but here are 2 teases!

Now for my Friday Faves

I'll do 5 this time :)

1. Silly little boys.

Roman is obsessed with SpiderMan
Everyday when he gets home he takes his clothes off and into the SpiderMan costume he goes!
He has walked into numerous walls with that mask on his little head
(hey, at least it has holes for him to breathe out of though!) LOL

2. Design team calls /Submissions

I have entered a few lately and I am bound and determined to make one!
Although the "no's" are disappointing I feel that I get better with each passing day.
I truly believe that by the end of 2009 I will be on a design team of a brand that I love.
I won't give up!

3. Uggs

I broke out my Uggs today for the first time this season
Putting them on are like seeing an old friend again
I would love to have about 5 more pair...

4. School Pictures

My kids got their school pictures back this week
I remember how excited I used to be to get mine back!
Cutting them up and exchanging with friends was the best
Last night I helped Mia with hers,
it touched my heart to see how excited she was

5. World Series!

I am rooting for the Angels, let's go in there and
show these damn Yankees what's up!!
(Wish my KC Royals were there but that's a whole other post)


Tell me one of your "faves" from this week!
