RAK Winner and more Cosmo

Ok...well, I have been burning the midnight oil as there is a Paper Crafts deadline Wednesday and I had some ideas... I hate it when I have ideas and then run out of time to create them for a deadline - so that was my goal tonight. 3 projects done!

The first is a birthday card to celebrate Paper Crafts 5th birthday - way to go! I love that magazine - there are ideas for everything! I had fun with my Scribbles paints on this one - I love the dimension and have them in a rainbow of colors. I cannot resist going to the aisle just about every trip to Michael's - trouble is I will need to find a new storage solution as my basket overflows!

The second is a inspirational card that is magnetic - put it up on the frig or file cabinet and let your imagination run wild! I love the Glimmer Mist on grungeboard, which I had treated first with paint and ink, and more ink after the mist dried.

The third is a simple Valentine project. Sometimes simple is more - and I love the look of rub-ons on this translucent carry out container. The sides use cardstock I had left from Cosmo Cricket's "Hey Sugar" line.

Fill this up with Valentine M&Ms and it should be very pretty!

Today Cosmo Cricket contacts their top 12. Will I be amongst the lucky chosen? Probably not, but I will keep on scrapping and keep on submitting - because hey sugar - it's what I was born to do!

I was up so late the midnight hour has passed and there is a winner chosen for the "Find Your Groove" book RAK!
The lucky gal whose post number was randomly selected is:

"Angela said...

Congrats Angela - would love to know which MB you found me from, and PM me your addy.

Enjoy the creative journey everyone - I really think it is a bit of what heaven will be like.
