Just a few things

Morning Everyone,

Found these little items yesterday going to use them for OTP's of some kind, my favourite of course is the book it came complete with a little stand for $2.50 gosh I love a bargain.......
Also waiting in my mailbox for me was these from Nic at Twiddleybitz 7 packs of chippie embellishments so thankyou Nic for my gorgeous prize ....
Onto other things looks like it's one of those days when I'm just going to be creating today hubby has a real long day at work what with his job, an army meeting after work and then a officer's function straight afterwards don't think he will be home until midnight tonight, so it's a fab excuse for me to just work on OTP's and swaps without him nagging lol....

The new challenge is up over at Lets get Shabby so love this month's challenge already have an idea for mine but it will have to take a backseat until I get all my swaps decorated and finished.....
So the challenge is a Shabby Easter who's playing along this month?

Also this is the latest challenge over at Dans ma maison this challenge is all about texture and the example just looks brilliant I haven't had time to do one of these so I'm hoping I can fit one in this week as I love the criteria .

Now over at Inkstains what about doing this one for a friend

BFF Album Challenge #1

On Saturday I posted a cool friendship e-mail I got from my Mom. I thought it would be fun to turn it into an altered book or scrapbook album and someone even suggested a card!

Well, got a lot of response so I thought we'd designate Tuesday as the BFF Album Challenge day.

Every Tuesday I'm going to post one piece of the Friendship Poem and a challenge to incorporate on your page.

Each of the challenges will be something that you could use in an altered book, scrapbook, on a card, ATC, etc. So no matter what your preferred platform you'll still be able to play!

Also, I am leaving the challenges pretty open for interpretation so that you can use what you have on hand. I've seen way to many challenges that make you use a specific stamp company or product which I think stinks. Not everybody has, wants or needs to have exactly the same items to join in the fun!
