Jun 10, 2008 Author: mytime | Filed under: blogger challenge

Hey everyone-Guess who has a blog now?

Elisabeth-the creator of Elzbels from the UK!!! Check it out–>HERE

 Her site for purchasing is going live soon!! I don’t know if that is a good thing for me! My wallet can’t handle it! LOL! I figured many of you would be happy to know know this since you ask me about her site often.

I also wanted to remind you to take a peek at Nichole’s Blog. The new release peeks have begun! She links a senior DT member daily for an additional sample-so dont miss that either. Also fellow DT member Lisa Johnson is this months designer-so she will feature daily peeks on her blog with her new set-Flower Garden (OMG! I couldn’t stop using it) through the week. Check her out HERE!

Also ATS is having a nice sale 😀 Check it out

And I was VERY excited to get this recognition for my very first scrap page using Unity Stamps-Beautiful Butterfly!! I did find a 3D collage frame so I can hang it up! No I am not making a scrapbook!  It was 40% off at Michaels today! YEAH!

OK Gotta run. I HOPE I didn’t forget anything.

Billy has a sleepover!

Jun 10, 2008 Author: mytime | Filed under: Home decor/3-D items

Before I start todays post RUN to Michaels! LOL! (but save enough money to buy Q.T. Hooty and Dress Up Billy first! LOL!) They have all their punches 40% off!! They got in a ton of new ones!! Even the treading Water one I use over and over!! AND the all the other new Fiskars border punches and Crop-a-dile BIG BITE, which I got to use a 50% OFF coupon on!! Happy Dancin!! WOW! I need to take a breath.

Well Dress Up Billy is almost here!! let me tell you, you are going to LOVE him!!! *LOVE* Only 2 more days to go!! Then you can buy him HERE

Im squealing with delight over here on this project.

I am suppose to post 2 Billy projects but this one deserves its own, don’t you think?

My kids are getting to the age where they want to have a sleepover. I am paranoid so would be happy to let a little friend come over HERE, but most likely not let my kids go THERE. I know I’m probably over-protective but I have all I can do to let my oldest Alexa sleep over her Father’s house, let alone my kids go to a complete strangers! Anyway, the questioning lead to the idea of HOW to invite someone over for a sleepover, and then I saw Billy!! It was perfect!

I love the PJs he can be put in and HAD to use them immediately. I thought to myself……How cute would a sleepover survival kit be? Send it along with the invite!! I know would go! LOL!

So here it is


Dress Up Billy-Sleepover Survival Kit

With the kit you give a stamped Pillow Case. (Note: I used my stamp-a-ma-jig and stamped just the PJ’s first, then JUST Billy’s head, onto the PJ’s). I saw decorate your own pillow cases in the store for $10!!! My pillow case came courtesy of Walmart of a whopping $1.99!!!

 You also get my super cute Sleep Over Kit box that I designed using aceate and my Scor-Pal (yes you really need one!! They are also sold at The Paper Tree). I just used a Prima Paint can handle for my handle, which I attached to the kit using the large eyelets from SU!!

Now, inside the kit you will find an altered crayon box to color the pillowcase for a fun activity. See Directions HERE You may also see some PEZ Candy and a dispenser. Oh and we can’t forget the flashlight.

See inside??? The additions you can make are just endless.


 I could have added more but of course, none of my ideas were available to me. But I did create this poem for the kit!!


Just printed off on my computer using the Giddyup font.

Please note this is Poem is written/created by me, and can only be for personal use. No submissions/paid publications- PLEASE & thank you.

Now if you want a closer view of the top 😀


I paper pieced his little Jammies, and stamped the sock monkey face onto them.

I rolled up some wide American Crafts Grosgrain ribbon for the sleeping bag!! I personally loved that little touch! LOL!

Well that is it for now. I have much to do, and share later.

Don’t forget to check the other Pink Cat designers for more samples!  Also check out the contest HERE!
