New Web Home...

Hi everyone, I haven't been around lately and the reason why is, I have a new home on the web.  Please join me at my new address:

Altered Scraps

I will be uploading lots of pics of projects over the next few days, so please bear with me.  Thank goodness my web guy is in-house (hubby).  I never have been so confused than I have been lately while working on this new site.  There is still some changes happening over there, but please visit often.

Blog Hop day 3

I want to start by saying THANK YOU to everyone who left comments.  I truly appreciate it, you have no idea how much.  Be sure to come by and visit tomorrow, I have more cards to show you.
    My daughter made the UCA All American Cheer Squad and has an opportunity to perform in the Thanksgiving Day Parade in Houston, TX.  I have been busy making cards and selling packs of them 10 for $20.  All of the profits go to her for fundraising and she had quite a few family members order the packs.  But, thankfully I am all caught up and even have a few extra packs on stand-by.  Tomorrow I will be sharing pics of some of the cards.
    Now, on to the project for today.  Feel free to email or post a comment if you have any questions.  I read each and every one of them.

Another Glitter Queens Blog Hop

WOW!! Has it really been a month since the last one?  And where have I been?  I am so sorry, I guess I need to put it on my calendar everyday so I don't remember at 11pm, then forget again in the morning.
If you are following in order, you have just come from Candice's blog, great projects right?  I decided to use the Doily background stamp, I LOVE IT and it is turing into my new favorite.
   After my post is a list of all the Glitter Queens in the blog hop, just in case you get lost along the way.  Make sure to join us this week as we celebrate all things fall.

Glitter Queens Fall Blog Hop Finale

Hi everyone,
    I am so sorry that I have been MIA, Kevin (my other half) had 2 have 2 teeth extracted on Wednesday and hasn't been feeling to well until yesterday.  You know how it goes when someone you love isn't feeling well.  Add onto that 3 kids and all those duties, it was busy crazy.  I want to apologize for that.  I hadn't planned on this and feel horrible that I wasn't able to keep up.

  As a thank you, I am taking all the comments from this week and doing a few more blog candies, I hope that helps make up for it!! Keep watching my blog, I have lots of projects getting ready to hit the page of this blog and I love doing random giveaways.

I will draw the winners tomorrow in the morning.  Thanks again and I hope you accept my apology.

Glitter Queens Fall Blog Hop Day 3

Hello again!! I so appreciate all the comments the past few days.  I read everyone one of them and THANK YOU so much!! All the comments and page views have definatly got me inspired to keep this blog updated everyday.

Sad news on the Gently Falling Project for today, I had it on my table all ready to get a fabulous picture for all of you, it was like one of those moments that replay in your mind slow motion.  A drink went flying across the table and of course landed directly in the path of my card!!! But, I do have a project for today, it was made completely in My Digital Studio and everything used on it (except for the digital download of Spice Cake) is included in the program!!! I have had fun learning MDS, and really it is so simple.  I hope you like todays project and I promise I will make up for no Gently Falling Stamp Set project tomorrow.

Don't forget to leave a comment today for blog candy at the end of the week.  I am thinking the blog candy will be a few fun things from the Spice Cake Product Suite!!! Also, for every $50 spent in my online store, enter to win a Clear Mount Gently Falling Stamp Set.

Now hop on over to Candice and see her project today! See you tomorrow.
