sneak peeks!

I've been such a bad blogger and I plan to change that...although I say that every time and end up posting consistently for a few months, then dropping off the face of the planet for another few. Such is life.

In summation: I'm fine. Claire is great. Greg is up to his usual shenanigans. The cows are great except for the bull who now has a bum hip (which will obviously impair his...ahem...performance, if you know what I mean.

Just a couple sneaks to share with you for the November Studio Calico kit.

This layout, I really love. Be sure to pick up the chalk inks that were new to the shop last month. They work great at re-coloring chipboard. I used Old Road on the letters here.
This layout was made using the main kit only. You can see 3 of the exclusive SC items here. I used mist on the thickers and it turned out so well in person. The white graph pattern acted as a resist and well, it's just so pretty. I especially like them sprayed with clover.

I still have a couple more projects to do with this kit, maybe even a card (gasp!). I better get a move on.

One last thing, the winner of the Field Guide kit is:
