Last saturday I attended our local spring Stamp Camp. I was so tired once home that I fell asleep and missed the Creative Cat Crew color challenge that week. Today is the only day that I can work on March Paper Pumpkin alternatives thus possibly jeapordizing a second week of participating. So, after completing a set of alternatives I thought I would see if this week's colors were a close...

As I rebuild my lost stash of supplies I find many challenges by not having absolutely everything. This is a unique situation that is stretching my creativity. For this month's alternatives, I found no dies in my meager collection that coordinate so instead I used textures and inks. I love to stencil and did recently purchase a four pack of  Stampin' Up! stencils, Stampin' Up! refers to them...

Due to some rather extreme circumstances, I have been sidelined from crafting. We suffered a catastrophic loss of our trailer and all of its contents on December 30th. We've been working through the recovery process and are now finally getting back on our feet.

Tonight I processed two Paper Pumpkin videos. I had to verify that I will be able to create the alternatives (I needed to be...

In the video I used discontinued dies and said that I would research the current product equivalents...

I pushed myself to finish my alternatives video ASAP. I cannot upload a video while we are using the internet because of course it uses all the bandwidth and my finished video was half a gig in size so would take hours to load. So I asked Hub to get me up when he went to bed so I could start the upload. That plan worked perfectly and by this am the upload was complete.

I like the cards...
