CHA - Winter 2007!!!

OK...breathe!
I've got a few things done for Laser Line's booth (#1705)! BUT I need to get at least 2 more projects started and they have to go out by this Wednesday!!! AHH!!

To add to the mix, we're in the process of negotiating the sale of our house! In the middle of winter in Chicago, we sold our house (well, not officially yet) and they want us out by the end of February! Didn't think we would sell our house...let alone above asking price in the off-peak season! LOL!! Who said it was a soft seller's market?! OY!

OK...enough of the vent!

I put together a Valentines wreath which I saw on either 2Peas or CK gallery and LOVED it! So I scraplifted....I used Laser Line's Plain Jane - Circles (3 lg & 3 md) and Plain Jane - Valentines sets; Cloud 9 Valentines PP; Ranger Ink Dabbers & Stickles; and Bo Bunny PP & Ribbons. I just noticed that "love" is in there....ooops! I was going to add "Be Mine" but lost the "Mine" (no, not MIND....well, that went a LONG time ago!!) so I had to adjust my plan!


OK so who wants to be RAK'd?! LOL!! I will send one set of Laser Line's Plain Jane chipboards to make this wreath. Please leave comments on what shapes you like to see in chipboard (existing or not). I will have one of my boys pick a name and announce the winner on Wednesday, Jan. 24 evening in honor of my deadline! Heehee!!!
Oh, these aren't my designs....these are existing ones that Laser Line did. I will post mine SOON!! So in the meantime, post away!

Love the wreath, Margie! Congrats to you on your success. :)

I'd love to see some oversized punctuation---large brackets, quotes, exclamation points, etc.

Beth said...

Great wreath.

I'd love to see animal related chipboard shapes - dogs, cats, horses, etc. (and for dogs, would love to see different breeds of dogs - esp a boxer, since that's my dog ;). Also cool florals, birds (like that popular bird that keeps showing up on patterned papers - Basic Grey, Scenic Route, etc).

Doodled shaped flowers and other doodle shapes. (more freestyle designed, if that makes any sense). Congrats and have fun at CHA!

First off CONGRATS on your big toot! That is awesome and also good luck on the house stuff, that isn't fun at any time but less than fun with so much going on with you right now. Don't let it distract from this fantastic high you must be feeling Ms. CHA!!!!!

I would like to see Stars or flourishes... not big ones since that is already out but small ones....

Thanks, can't wait to see who the LUCKY winner is!
