TSG178: One Flake At A Time...a Sneak Peek!

Monday, October 22, 2012

Another Monday; another weekend gone! lol

The Pumpkin Festival was spectacular this year! We had the most gorgeous weather (70deg) and blue skies, but sadly we were 1500 pumpkins shy of smashing the world record. Bugger! Not sure what Highwood, Illinois got for a total, but if you want to check out what a real pumpkin festival looks like, then tune into HGTV at 8pm on Halloween night (October 31st)! Pumpkin Wars is a television special on the two towns, hosted by the Property Brothers, Drew and Jonathan Scott. I can't wait to their shots of Keene! 

It's release week at There She Goes again, but before we share those sneak peeks, I've got an itty bitty one for you today! Are you prepared for some SERIOUS CUTENESS!??

Adorable right?! Who doesn't love snowmen?? And for those that do, we've got an awesome set being released this week! I can't wait for you all to see it! You're going to MELT when you do! lol

I used this week's There She Goes challenge (#178), which is a sketch, for my layout and some old papers from Chatter Box (do they even exist anymore?!) and MME. See that sentiment?? It's from another set we're releasing this week too! Ooo! You guys are in for a treat this week, that's for sure! I hand drew the swoop along the bottom, cut it out with my scissors, then cut my patterned paper into 4 equal pieces. Then I lightly trimmed each corner off the pieces. Then I sponged each piece with Antique Linen Distress Ink and sewed each piece to the white cardstock base. Next, I cut a banner from some scrap MME paper, matted it to some white cardstock and adhered it to the base. Then I added some red baker's twine and a button to balance out the other side of the card.

We'd love for you to play along with us this week! Here are all the deets:
