As God as my witness, I will never use a glue stick again!

So, I grabbed a large stack of layouts the other day so I could put them into albums. As I walked towards my scrap table, the stack tilted a bit and then........a storm of alphas and embellishments dropped onto the floor. UGH. I have used every glue stick on the market, but I have never found one that actually worked as a permanent adhesive! So I just set the stack of layouts and miscellaneous embellies to the side - I just can't face the repair work right now!

But I ain't messing around next time - - everything is going to be attached with my Helmar glues!!

P.S. I threw every glue stick in my scrap room into the trash!

Some Scrapbook Updates......

So, with too much work going on, I had been in kind of a scrappy slump. But recently I think my mojo has come back.

A new challenge is up at A True Friend (Challenge Blog for Pet Lovers!) I had a lot of fun with Challenge #41 - Grooming - My layout is about the "Peticure" tool from the informercial on TV. Yeah, I love informercials! My layout is here, I hope you will pop over and check out the others - - they are so fun!

Another recent pet layout I completed "Mad Cat" was named as "Design Team Layout of the Day" over at Treasured Scrapbooking (my online home!) today. This is always such a great boost! Especially when you are chosen by a scrapper you really admire like Pinky - check out her blog for some awesome inspiration!

And lastly, back in January, I was invited to an online crop over at Citrus Tree Studio by an online friend and really enjoyed it! So started visiting there a lot more often. I even threw my hat into the ring for their design team call. Although I didn't make the Spring/Summer Design Team - I will be one of the guest designers for this term, and I am super excited about that! They do have delicious kits, but equally important, the DT and message board are very friendly and open - - this always bodes well for good customer service - hope you get a chance to check them out.
