Scrap Attack Blog Hop!!!

Hi! and thanks for stopping in for the Scrap Attack Scrapbooking blog hop! If my blog is the first place you have visited…welcome! To make sure you don’t miss out on any of the blogs in the {SAS}sy Blog Hop I suggest you start at the beginning by visiting at Scrap Attack Scrapbooking at and then work your way around the rest of the blogs.

There are 11 blogs to hop, and if you leave lots of comments, you get lots of entries to win great prizes from Scrap Attack!!! Also, be sure to go to the SAS blog, and check out the word scramble contest! So lets get going!

The first kit I received as a DT member at Scrap Attack contained something I fell in love with immediately. Bazzill Tulle! It's delicate, comes in many colors, and can add a soft colorful touch to embellishments. I've used it several times since then, and I'm still finding new ways to play with it. Here are a couple tips to encourage you to try tulle on your projects:

Add dimension to a butterfly -

Roll it into a flower (like you've seen with fabric)-
I just used glue dots to fasten it down, since it's sheer it sticks together really well.

Pleat it and staple or wrap with wire to make a ruffled circle -

Here's a little inspiration to get you going, with some of the techniques I listed above. You can find this product and the products seen in these examples at the SAS Online store

Scrap Attack Scrapbooking will be giving away prizes. They'll be drawn from all comments left on all participating blogs so make sure and comment so you are eligible to win! As a {BONUS} there is a hidden word on each blog that can be pieced together to make a familiar {SAS}sy phrase. If you can unscramble the words to make this phrase you could win a $50 gift certificate to the Scrap Attack Scrapbooking store. For more details on the prizes, please see the Scrap Attack Scrapbooking blog.
Here is your word: IN

Your next hop will be to Nadine's blog! Thanks for playing!

Nerves and some great pajamas

We are participating in 4-H sewing this year. Claire made pajama pants with a faced waistband. They came out so cute and she wanted to wear them right away. i had to tell her that they will be on a hanger until sometime after the fair. not long now.

Jillian made pajama pants too. they came out so cute. green polka dot with white buttons. When she did her walk for the judges she said her legs were shaking. poor sweety. she did forget to make her turn when she started but i don't think that was a big deal. the judges were so nice and encouraging. I was sooo proud of both these girls.

Judging took about an hour until we got through the line. We find out what they got on Friday night of the fair, when they will model their outfits for an audience, and the winners will be announced. So exciting!
