It's finally here . . .

. . . the blog candy *and* the new SU! catalog!!!!!!!!!!!!! Whoo hoo! So, the blog candy includes this notebook (from Target) that I altered using some patterned paper by Rhonna Farrer for Autumn Leaves (also from Target). Also, I am including 36 quarter sheets of SU! designer series paper from the following collections: Oxford, Cambridge, Sarah, Rebecca, Recollections, and Sentimental Journey. And that's not all! The blog candy also includes two unmounted stamps from Starving Artist! I hope you all like this little ensemble that I have complied for you! For a chance to win, just leave a comment here on this post with a question you might have for me. The contest will run through Sunday, and on Monday morning I will have my daughter randomly pick a winner! Easy peasy, right? I am off to drool over my catty some more! There is no better way to celebrate my birthday weekend! *wink*

Pretty notebook! I love altering those. :) As for a question, I have no clue. Why did the chicken cross the road? No one has ever been able to answer that satisfactorily for me. To get to the other side just doesn't seem complex enough to me. There has to be a more indepth reason. *wink*

Jen said...

Your notebook is way too cute! A question huh......Let me think....

Do you wear toe-rings? I can't, they drive me beyond batty! Can't stand things on my toes....I think they're pretty though...

I love your notebook! You have some seriously talented mojo!

I have a question about chickens too: what came first - chicken or egg? That's the one that I feal has never really been answered.

What a cool notebook!!! I have a
simple question...what is the last number in the year that you were born 7 or 8? The Floridian answer
to "Why did the chicken cross the road"? is to show the armadillo
that it can be done!

Okay, this is funny. I just purchase a couple of these notebooks myself to alter for a couple of my nieces' as b-day presents. What a hoot to possible win one! My question....which SCS'r do you receive the most inspiration from? I'm asking a simple question because I don't the answer to the chicken questions. Have a great birthday!

Lori said...

Hmmm... my comment did not post, so I'm trying again. I just purchased a couple of these notebooks to try and alter myself (making birthday presents for nieces). Maybe I'll win me one! Anyhoo, my question is which SCS'r gives you the most inspiration? I'm asking an easy question as I don't have a good answer for the chicken questions. Have a great birthday!

My Little Hobby said...

Lucky you! Woohoo! I am so anxious to see the new catalog!

My question is a two-part one: Did you send the card you made in March, CC105, titled Doodles for a friend, to anyone yet? If so, how did they like it? I'm always curious how the recipient of a card reacts and if they LOVE it.

Lisa said...

Wow, great blog candy. I take lot's of notes. LOL
I always have questions.

Why do kids bug you when you are on the phone?

Why are there telemarketers?
Why is the sky blue?
Why are men different from women?
Why do we put up with it? (wink)
Why do kids put gum in each other's hair 5 minutes before you need to leave?
Do you need more questions?

Hugs, and I hope I win!

janet allen said...

Thanks for offering this awesome blog candy. Your cards are very nice, what one thing or person do you get most of your inspiration from?

Janet B said...

I love your altered notebook! Altered items are my favorite thing to do. Thanks for sharing it.

As for a question, how do you get your color combinations? Do you use what the designer puts together, or do you have your own plan>

Thanks, Janet B

lisa said...

Hi there, cool stuff you are offering up. My question is what is your favorite paper crafting tool??

margot said...

Adorable set. I can't tell how you embellished the pen from the photo so my question would be how you did that.

Katie said...

I'm so jealous that you all have the new catalog! I need to walk over to my demos house...I seriously think I am more excited than her! Ugh

Ok, I want to know what your favorite black marker/pen is to use in crafting? I need a new one!

Patty from Ohio said...

WOW! What great Blog Candy!! Question: What do you think will be your most used new punch from the new catty?

Stamp4hobby said...

Beautiful notebook!

Since everyone is asking silly questions- How many boxes of cereal do you have in your pantry? Please count both cold and hot cereals. ;)

And my serious question is- What's your favorite accessory?

Cathy said...

This candy is sweet. Great layout on the notebook. I love altered items. Ok my question to you is...What got you started in stamping and what is your favorite technique? Ok that's 2, sorry. Thanks for a chance.

jmniffer said...

Happpy Birthday. How sweet of you to give a gift away on your day. My question, do you find it difficult to make time to stamp in the summer months and if so do you just let it slide or make an extra effort to find the time? Jenny

KayellWY said...

Happy Birthday to you!! Are you planning anything special to celebrate....besides making your wish list from your new catalog? ;)

What a gorgeous notebook. I so love coming to your blog everyday! I guess my question would have to be about the new SU catty. What are the first two must haves for you?

JoAnn said...

I love that notebook set! My question for you is: What are you ordering from the new SU catalog? Do you place a big order on July 1, or do you try to control yourself?

Kristina Lewis said...

Hello! Love the notebook! What is your favorite new stamp set in the catty? I love so many and am trying to narrow it down!

Debby Winters said...

What a very pretty note book. I haven't tried one of those yet but I am sure I will eventually. I really enjoy your blog. Have been subscribing to it for awhile now. Actually it is one of the blogs that inspired me to start blogging. I am new at it but enjoying it very much.
My question to you is...how do you keep so inspired and keep up the energy for your blog...I think it's amazing.
Cheers Debby

Susan Daly said...

Hi there,
I love your notebook. I have done those from Target and I was wondering how you handle the back cover. I have trouble with finding the right size punch to make a hole and then getting the elastic through.

Alisha said...

LUV IT! I made altered notebooks for teachers' last year.....a tradition that I will carry on until they kiddos are out of school! I love this one and will make mine similar to it next year....the pen add-on is a great idea!
