Gonna Get My Scrappin' Goove On Tonight and Tomorrow!

I don't have any pics with this post yet, but hopefully will have things to add later. Tonight we have short-noticed 1 hour layout contest at Just Scrappin! I so L-O-V-E doing these!! They are so much fun and exciting! The rush, craziness, and sorting through the 5 million ideas going through you head so quickly is just a blast. We got our hints:

12 x 12 LO
3 or even 2 Landscape pictures....maybe a sequence or matching style??
2 4X6 and 1 slightly smaller maybe one you can cut down a little OR all 3 cut down a little.

Can't wait to see the sketch!
(update as of 10:18pm est)

Here's the sketch ......................

And the drum roll please.......................................tah dah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Also, tomorrow night heading out with the ladies to work on my Christmas cards--nothing like waiting until the last minute to get them done, huh? Especially when you are making them all by hand! Yep, I am crazy, but that's how it is when you love crafting!

Thanks for stopping in, and make sure you stop back to see what I come up with!

have fun with your sketch.....

oh, found this recipe for cinnamon and applesauce ornaments....sound to good!!!!

Apple Sauce
Craft Glue
Cookie Cutters (cut by hand if you like)

Craft Project Instructions:

Mix equal amounts of apple sauce and cinnamon and add 1 teaspoon of craft glue for every cup of applesauce. Mix all the ingredients until you have a firm but wet dough. You can add small amounts of cinnamon if your dough is too wet. If you like you can substitute small amounts of cinnamon for a little nutmeg or ground cloves.cinnamon (17K)

Roll out your dough to at least 1/4 inch thickness (less than this will make your ornaments a little weak and they break easily) and cut shapes with cookie cutters.

With a toothpick, poke a hole at the top of each ornament that is large enough for a ribbon to be pulled through. Place ornaments on a cooling rack or tray to dry completely. Depending on how large your ornaments are, drying could take a couple of days; it's best not to touch your ornaments during this time.

Once your ornaments are dry and if there are a few rough edges, you can easily remove the roughness with a little fine sandpaper. Sand your ornaments gently, as it doesn't take much to remove the little edges.

Tie a ribbon through the hole and, if you like, you can paint these ornaments or add a little glitter. Be sure not to cover the entire ornament with paint or the wonderful scent will be lost.
