Gone Fishin'!!


Well, I'm workin' my little butt off this week!! I have a stamp camp with 12 ladies out of town on Friday night and I have had to work extra time at the library, unexpectedly, so I'm desigining and preparing and packing in my 'spare time'. Hahaha!

So here is a scrapbook layout that I created for Virtual Scrapbook Weekend. It is a two page 12x12 layout using Basic Grey Oh Baby Boy patterned papers which were perfect for these pictures of my nephew. At this age he had a ball hangin' out and watching the fishies in Nana's aquarium, so I created the underwater scene at the bottom of the pages using some awesome new stamps by Pink Cat Studio. I stamped the images on Whisper White cardstock using black Stazon ink and coloured them in using my SU markers that match the colours in the patterned paper. Then I made a scalloped edge for the top of the scene using my slit punch. I made the title using both my Big Deal Alphabet and my Whimsical Alphabet, using both sizes of tag punches and popping the second half of the title up on pop dots. The journaling reads: Matthew is fascinated by Nana's fish!! He sits on Nana's lap and watches them swim. There are Angel Fish, Silver Dollars and Clown Loaches. He points to them and talks to them. Matthew loves fishin'!



I also have some super-exciting news!!!!! I have recently found an awesome stamp company called Rubber Stamping Fun and a couple of weeks ago they put out a call for people with stamping blogs and galleries to apply to be a Reviewer for their company. Well, I jumped right on that, didn't I???? I guess a TON of people applied and they chose only 145 people all over Canada, the US, England, Australia and more.....and guess what????? They picked little ole me!!! So the plan is that they will be sending us each a set of their brand new, unreleased stamps just to play around with them and review them on our blogs!! How great is that?? They want honest feedback about what we like or don't like about their stamps! I'm really thrilled to be in on this process with them and I'm honestly impressed that a company would do this and realizes how important it is to hear opinions about their products. So I have already chosen my set....it's so adorable and I don't have anything like this set in my arsenal yet...so I can't wait to get it!!! If you haven't seen their website before, go and check them out! They have some fantastic images in both wood-mounted and clear acrylic stamps!! And be sure to let them know Kimmie sent ya!!
