My Brain Isn't Working...

Don't ask why, but I've had an awful headache for the past few days.  My craft room is cool and a little on the dark side as it is in the basement so I've spent a little more time than normal in it when at home during the day.  Although I've been able to craft, I've struggled with the whole thinking part, so I've relied on sketches and challenges to inspire me:)  This week's Sweet Sunday Sketch was what I used for my layout, and I used the Hand Stamped Sentiments Challenge for my colour scheme as they were suggesting a Monochromatic theme this week:)  Can you guess what sex the baby is that my mom asked me to make this card for?

Check out the new Shaker Frames that I used on the center rattle!  These are the same ones that I used on my Christmas card yesterday... you get a variety of sizes in the package.  I was really unsure about what one could possibly to with ones this small, imagine the jumping and squealing when I realized that they were the right size for my rattle!

Yippee! I was a winner:)

The new mini launches in just 2 days... but you know what that means, the current mini is done in less than that!  If there's anything that you're wanting from the current summer mini or if you want to take advantage of the BUY 3, Get 1 Free DSP promotion, let me know!  Anyone purchasing $50+ before taxes and s/h , before August 31st at 10:50pm PST will get a free set of the Shaker Frames mailed to them as a little present from me!
