"The great gift of human beings is that we have the power of empathy." ~Streep

Scrap Pink is in a little over one week and we are all so excited to play such a special part in the fight against breast cancer. Most of us here have had our lives touched by this horrible disease, whether through family or friends, and we know many of you have endured alongside mothers, sisters, daughters and friends. Because breast cancer effects so many, we want to allow for every opportunity we can to support wonderful organizations like Susan G. Koman for the Cure.

We still have a few spaces available for the Scrap Pink Crop. In addition to a fabulous day of scrapbooking and spending time together, a portion of each crop fee will be donated to Komen for the Cure. We will also be hosting a luminaria ceremony after dark to show support for the victims and survivors of this disease. (Crop is Saturday, September 27th from 10am-2am. Please call us if you have questions or want to sign up!)

If you want to contribute even more it's as easy as buying a raffle ticket! We were surprised with a very generous donation from the brand new Hilton Garden Inn in Beavercreek and we are raffling off this fabulous prize during Scrap Pink! Raffle tickets are only $1 each or get 6 for just $5! All proceeds will go to to Komen for the Cure! The winner will receive a one night stay in a romantic suite at the Hilton Garden Inn, champagne, chocolate-covered strawberries, and more! There is no limit to the number of ticket you may purchase and you do not have the be present to win! This is such a simple way to show your support for breast cancer research and treatment and you never know... you may be the winner! (Drawing will be held at 2pm on Saturday, September 27th. Winner will be notified immediately.)
Breast cancer makes an impression on all of us in ways big and small. We can fight back just as hard. Scrap Pink gives us the opportunity to combine something we love with a cause we feel so strongly about. Let's take this chance to come together with our mothers, sisters, daughters and friends to enjoy our time together and lend our strength to the battle against breast cancer.

Glitter, Sparkle and Flirt

What is she talking about they wondered... Glitter, Sparkle and Flirt? What does that have to do with anything? Then they realized.... that is exactly what we did this weekend! Two full days of scrapping with beautiful paper, amazing projects and SEXY GUYS. We made our way through 5 cards, 2 pages and a mini album with GLITTER on our paper, SPARKLE in our eyes, and FLIRTING in the air! Remember, DON'T MISS any events... you never know what we will have up our sleeve. Amazing ideas, Giveaways, Prizes, SOMETIMES EVEN GOOD-LOOKING MEN!
SCRAPPINK September 27
FALL RETREAT November 7-9
A peek at our MY MINDS EYE project we completed
this weekend. We had such a great time, and the scrapping wasn't bad either!
There new line is amazing and it is moving quick. All the paper is complete with glitter accents and sweet patterns. The accessories are great too, they even have ink now to top it all off! Cover of the book, adorned with MY MINDS EYE die-cut and ADHESIVE glitter chipboard letter. ALREADY ADHESIVE!


I loved the way they layered the transparencies over each photo mat. All their Chipboard accents are adhesive too!

They also made clever little pockets through-out the book to hold cute tags and such. SPARKLE SPARKLE SPARKLE.

I LOVED these cards. We made these in the My Minds Eye class and they were just beautiful. Let me say, this paper is PERFECT for card makers. It is very thick and has a subtle touch of glitter, plus all the title pieces make a quick and easy card!

Again, I used the NEW My Minds eye paper line. It is moving fast so bop on in to get yours! The rubons and titles worked perfect for the look I was trying to achieve. (the bird is their rubon)

Also new in the store is the stamps pictured below. They are perfect for the traditional stamper and make wonderful cards. Each kit comes complete with the stamp, rhinestones and 5 Kraft cards and envelops. Our very own Terri Ginter designed this card ... she was amazed at how SIMPLE AND BEAUTIFUL it turned out.

There are lots to choose from, you'll love it. (perfect gift idea)

On an ending note: isn't he just adorable!
This is Nate's nephew Aiden (so i guess kinda mine too). We rarely get to spend time with them and I just couldn't help but take a million photos of him. We spent a week in Myrtle Beach and had a blast. I had to scrap him right away. Precious.
(This is the new October Afternoon paper.... LOVE IT)
