Time to get BUSY!

I have my CTMH open house in just two short days and I've been so busy with the L.O.A.D. challenge that I haven't been making much in the way of other goodies to show off. Today I focused more on that.

I didn't get a 2-page layout done :( However, I did do this one. It's one of the make n takes for my open house. It's 8X10 so it can go in a frame or be used as part of a larger layout.

Here are a few cards I made with various new papers and stamps:

First Card--Silhouette papers and Make It Count Stamps--saw one similar on the CTMH board (don't remember who)
Second: Heartfelt and Playful Flourishes stamps--this design is lifted from one in the catalog

First card: Make it Count stamps and Good Times papers
Second: Eastertime and Happy Birthday stamps--wanted to show it as something other than Easter

This last one is with the January Stamp of the Month, Eastertime. This will be another of the make n takes. I have to thank Kathi for the inspiration on this one--I tweaked it a little, but not much.

Now tomorrow I have more cards to make and I need to go find plates and tablecloths. Plus I want to make one more Serendipity layout. Austin has his first basketball practice tomorrow night, so it should be a very busy day! I may get some sleep tomorrow--LOL!

Remember if you are local, stop by Friday between 2:30 and 7 pm for My "Black Tie Open House". I am planning 3 make n takes, lots of samples, food, prizes, and goodies for everyone in attendance!

These are all so pretty, Nic! Wishing you lots of luck with your Open House. I don't know of any CTMH demos around here, but I really enjoy seeing what you do with your stamps and papers. They are all so pretty. I love the idea of making your page 8 x 10 to incorporate it into a frame. Terrific idea, and great pic btw! :) Kelly

Wow! You've been busy. Awesome stuff! Love the tweaked version of my card, too. My next one will be better because of it. We all learn from each other, which is what makes it fun. Thanks for sharing.
