Open Happiness!

A while back our company decided to have a contest....we were suppose to take our new jingle "Open Happiness" (push the listen up button, which BTW is so cute) and our "Live Positively " campaign (family, environment, community) and combine them into a creative medium (video, poem, art project) which interprets the song and the program, bringing them together in the most creative way we could....there were 3 fantastic prizes to be won, all VIP trips for you and your significant other to spend 4 nights at the Winter Olympics, which includes a stay at the Granville Hotel, all transportation, food and Olympics tickets, and other items estimated value $12000!!

Well how could I resist my creative soul jumped into action! No one could be as creative as me, right? But, I would be up against a lot of creative marketing I was a bit skeptical. I spent a whole lotta time planning and executing this little baby, only wish I could show everyone in person so much better in person when you can see the 3D, detail and dimension in it. I am so proud of how it came out and regardless of whether I won or not I had a great time planning and making it. Check out my Open Happiness Album (link Below). It was placed in a decorated box so it was like an exciting present to open for the judges. I wanted it to be fun, on the childish side, incorporating images from work and historical items and recycled items...most of all I wanted it to be whimsical....when you open the box you find an album, the first page opens up to be very simple with our moto on it. Underneath when you open it there is a quasi poem and lyrics that go with the new jingle. When you open this the jingle plays as well. Follow the "film" path through the album from the Spring to Winter....along the way you will see what makes me happy.....leading up to the possibility of being at the 2010 Winter Olympics!!

I wish I could figure out how to insert the slide show here, so unfortunately you have to click on the link and go to flicker to see it....also some of the photos are sideways, (did I ever tell you I am a bit computer challanged!!

Oh I almost forgot in my excitement to share the album with you, that I actually WON!!! and will be heading to the Winter Olympics with my DH!!! Man I can not wait!!! I am so stinkin' excited...thanks for letting me share!

Well seems like I have been on bit of a hiatus lately...I have an issue with my hand and arm which is causing me grief for scrapbooking and being on the computer. I have been trying but it is slow in here are a few from a few weeks back when I got together with some of my scrappin' buddies... hope you enjoy....come back later this week I got a surprise for you all!

I am trying to use more old family photo's and get them into some layouts rather than in a drawer. Homestead and Nana are two of those....

One last sail...

Today was the last sail for the year. It was a nice sunny day but a little cold. Glad we got out but the boat is being taken out of the water this week. Sad, it means an end to the summer and the beginning of winter...

Keep an eye out here, I am going to post snippits of a class I am going to teach at Pointer Scrapbooking in November. Keep an eye out on their website for details.

Hopefully soon I will get some more time to scrapbook and post some more on my blog. Work has been crazy and for the next few weeks it is going to be very busy.

Hope everyone is having a good fall season. Leave me a post and let me know you are still around!

To teach or not to teach...

Well I have been asked for quite a while now to teach a class at my LSS store....I have been waffling on the idea since I can not do it during the week due to work and the weekends are so short. Also I have no idea how to teach!!! or how to put a class I have been thinking about it. I have managed to put one LO together and this week will plan another..So here is a question for you all...what do you like to do in a class and what doesn't work in a class setting? Leave me a comment please....I will post shortly the two LO's that I will be teaching...
For now here are a couple of LO's that were done this weekend....

August JustCre8 Reveal

Well it is with sadness that I post this JustCre8 reveal for the month of August. This will be the last kit that Sue has put together. I totally support her decision to close JustCre8 to take care of her family and spend more time with them. I am really sad though I loved being on the DT and spending time on the forum with all the gre8 people that hung out there. Everyone was so inspirational and fun going, I love you all to bits. I am not sure what I am going to do with myself now I love having the deadlines to give me a push as well the KITS were outstanding!! The forum and store will be around for a while more so I am going to stick around to the end, but here they are my final four designs....This months kit was as usual fabulous and so much fun to use....hopefully soon I will have a bit more time to use more of out for one more item a tutorial that I will be posing...
