Gothic Wednesday featured Here and There

Hi Scrappy Friends! Today I'm combining a double post. I didn't want to do this but both things are special that I didn't want to bury either one of them. So first, I'm the guest blog writer for Getting Cricky. Kristal is off getting some much needed R&R and us Cricky gals are taking over for the time being. Ok so I wont bore you with all I said over there (lol) just something about me being a black sheep and all but you'll have to hop on over there to check it out :).

Now for the project itself, it is Scrap Team Challenge time again over at Simply Betty Stamps Challenge BlogThe theme of this challenge is: Tag It!
  • Use a Tag, create a Tag, anything but a Tag must be on your project
  • Use the Colors: Cranberry (Red), Hot Cocoa (Brown), Snow (White) and Teal
  • Must use a Simply Betty image. It can be from any line as long as it is a Simply Betty Stamp/Digi.
Today is also a special day at Simply Betty Stamps for 2 reasons. First, it is release day. All week, the Sweet Gothic Kids Christmas line was previewed and it ended today with this cutie full of sass, Wednesday. She is def one of my faves from this bunch.)

Second, for 1 week ONLY, the whole SGK Christmas line will be available in digi format. (Click HERE) WooHoo!! So all you digi lovers, this is the time to buy buy buy because Betty will put them back into the vault once the week in done. Btw, they are available in clear rubber format as well. So don't doddle.

(I am submitting to My Craft Spot- Christmas in July)

For my project, I created a mini notepad . Those notepads are very handy because you can just toss them in your purse and run out the door. Plus you can write all the nonsense you want (lol) like i tend to do :) and replace the pad when you are done. Also, since the them is Christmas well its time to start writitng those lists. I know some people think its too soon but the holiday is literally a hop, skip and a jump away and all the madness that comes with it will descend on us.

I also created a pocket for the inside. This way you have some wiggle room to shove some receipts in there or loose sheets from the pad. I added the paper clip for extra security, organization.

Here is a closeup of this sassy bad ass Gothic cutie. The sentiment I used is "Sweet Cheeks You're the Best!", is a representation of what I was talking about over at Getting Cricky. The sentiments are the mix and match set Food for Thought  (benefiting the Storefront Shelter for Homeless Children) from KAndrew Designs

*** Ok so I mentioned I would be having mini, mini candy. I will create 3 of these tags with your choice image from the new SGK Christmas line for 3 commentors (1 per each). I personally use my tag as a bookmark but it can be used as pleased. If you want to be included in the draw just write the asterisk* mark next to your comment. You dont have to be a friend/followet but I wont mind if you do.  

Make sure to return tomorrow for Operation OWL. Youll have a chance to win your own set of Amy Chomas pens and holder. Thanks for stopping by.
