Travel Diaries: Miami

I had such a fantastic time while in Miami with Amy and Julie doing ScrapPink. We got all sort of giggles while listening to fellow scrappers ("My husband thinks Sarah Palin is red hot."), we drank way too much Diet Coke, giggled about married life/soon to be married life and of course we got some great progress done.

All three of us, Julia, Amy and I, pretty much put October's Commit2Paper kit to rest. I got about seven LOs out of the kit. I would have had more, but I wasted some paper trying to make their Cricut work (mine at home is set the way I like it, plus I think their blade needed replacing). Either way though a great kit. Lots of fun to work with. I can't wait to post my results (alas I don't have photos yet, so patience please).

Double bonus I got my hands on November, which I plan on digging into this weekend at another scrap retreat (this one more informal with a friend and her church friends). I'm hoping to make some major progress there. Getting all my IS requirements done sooner rather than later is a major plus because hubs-to-be and I are considering a move to a new apartment at the end of November. My roommate just put an offer on a house (and they took it!) and she's going to be moving out in Nov-Dec territory. We had originally planned to just move Chris in, but the idea of a new (less expensive) apartment that is JUST ours seems so appealing and so perfect we might just have to go for it. Even if moving is a giant pain.

I've also started my first ATC (artist trading cards) for a swap for ScrapGoods (Amy's hosting the swap and had a few spaces left). I've not made them before, but it's kind of fun. There's a little more flexibility and I'm enjoying the smaller medium. My cards will probably be sub-par in comparison, but I'm trying to not let that phase me. Here's hoping though that I actually GET my stuff that I've submitted to the swap. As of yet, I've only had success with one SG swap thus far.

Yep the atc's are truly little works of art and we take those swaps very serious.

Now, hurry up and get some pics I wanna see your Oct C2P!!!!

If anyone would like to know more about artist trading cards and their history, or how to make artist trading cards, they may also be interested in a couple of articles that I've written.
