The winner is and more creations

First I want to Thank everyone who stopped by. And to let you know that this will not be the last RAK that I will be doing. This will probably become a monthly drawing that I do for different scrap booking and other supplies or creations I make, so check back often.
With that said I put all 44 names in tin box, shook it up and the winner of the Xyron Personal cutting system is Mariah.
So Mariah please email me at mmerrill_20@hotmail.com with you address so I can send off your new tool.
With such a large number of comments I just had to draw another name to give away a stash of scrapbooking supplies ( paper, embellishments and a few other surprises).
That winner is Kimmie.
So like Mariah email your address to me at the above email and I will get your scrapbooking stash in the mail to you.

I wish I could give away more at this time. Though I haven’t had time to organize the rest of my stash. So more to come next month.

As you may have read I am going on the Tim Holtz Alaska Cruise. Which is only in 15 days! It seems like it has been forever, since I signed up for this cruise last June. 200 of us will be taking 5 workshops with Tim over the course of the cruise. When I return I will most definitely share everything.

I got some goodies in my mail box over this last week.
Those Blue Violet color wheels that I showed you in the last post, I participated in with my BookArtz group, have found there way back home to me in the form of a great completed color wheel. Now proudly displayed on one of my many shelves in my home.

I was so lucky to be able to participate, at the last minute, in the “By the Sea” charm swap with my group Charmsters. I mailed them off to the hostess Denise Thursday the 17th and received the great creations of my fellow charmsters back on Wednesday.
So last night I was able to create a great bracelet with all of them.

I was finally able to get my Spring Time Paper dolls off in the mail to Tammie for the swap she is doing. Being from Oregon I thought it would be appropriate to include an umbrella in my creation.

One last thing to share. Pages from the Round Robin I am in. The theme for Rena’s book is Hope.
I like glitter just not the mess it makes when I use it. So when I came across Stickles from Ranger Ink I fell back in love with Glitter. So I do tend to use it on a lot of my projects and this is one of them.

If you are not able to read the quote that is on the right page it says: "If you lose hope, somehow you lose the vitality that keeps life moving, you lose that courage to be, that quality that helps you go on in spite of it all. And so today I still have a Dream." By Martin Luther King Jr.

Happy Creating,
