Deadline to choose your T-Shirt size has changed to September 30th. We will, of course, order everyone a shirt however you will not be guaranteed your size after September 30th. It will be on a first come basis.

How will this work?
On Friday evening when the shirts are handed out, those that purchased tickets after September 30th will need to wait until everyone has a shirt then we will begin in ticket order calling the names of those that did not get a shirt. You will get your choice of what shirts we have available at that time. Hopefully we won't have this problem because I know you are going to go straight to the website and register.

We have twelve awesome classes lined up for you on Friday. Scroll down below to find the class you are most interested in. A couple of the classes are not quite finished yet so there are no pictures. I will post the photo's as soon as they are available.

Your card must be ran the day you sign up and paid in full by October 31st.
For Example: If you purchase the Grungeboard for $35 and the Christmas Canvas for $30 you will need to put down at least $32 the remaining balance will be deducted on October 31st. Hopefully this will help!

Good Evening! More from Pink Paislee and Crate Paper...

Have you all built your boats yet? I think we need to soon!! We had so much rain here that our neighbor's pond overflow came through our yard, and brought his fish with it! We literally had small perch floating across our driveway! I could not believe it! My son picked them up and put them in our bird bath to "save their lives"! He was so proud of himself!!
This weather makes me want to stay in, be lazy, and scrapbook! I made this tonight with the new Amber Road from Pink Paislee. I think this is one of my most favorite lines I've seen so far. Love the rich and perfect for fall.

I used the punch outs and the Canvas Tag Patch on this page. You get three of those tags in a package and they are all gorgeous.

This photo shows the detail of the paper pleating I've done. It is easy, just fold and staple, and repeat. You have to staple the ends together (2-3 pleated pieces) to get the 12X12 length. Easy to do and adds a bit of interest to the pages.

Tonight we're talking paper, Crate Paper. Click HERE to go to their website gallery.
Click HERE to go to the main website

I couldn't find any good videos for them, so just go check out their website and all their new lines they have.

1 Month and 24 days until EXTRAVAGANZA!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hope all is well with all of you out there tonight!
Happy Scrappin' from The Attic!!

Go check out their BLOG. It is just as cute as their new line!

Two peas have lots of videos from CHA and this is one I've borrowed from You Tube(I'm sure the contest she talks about it WAY over as this is from July) This really shows you some papers and embellies close up from Jillibean and my favorite is Alphabet Soup- SO CUTE!

Here is another video from Creating Keepsakes at CHA and Jillibean Soup. This is also pretty funny... you can tell these girls were really having a great time!

I LOVE LOVE LOVE the booth here!! I am really considering this tin for the walls in my scrapbook hut we're finishing!! Would it not be so cute to have a wall covered in tin and make it look old and shabby?

Here are a few samples I've borrowed from their blog...
This one is Long Beach by Rita Oliverio

and another fantastic layout "new 6th Grader" by Jenn Emch. This is my favorite new line - Alphabet Soup. I love it!!

I'm going to leave you with some pages from Tisha.... these are so cute! She used the backside of the Hedge Hog papers from Sass-a-Frass to complete layouts with pictures from the Hometown Crop.

I will try to keep you updated a little more than I have... I've been really really busy and also trying to fight off all kinds of "crud", which I think I've almost got it whipped! So be watching for more great videos!
