a big deal, some layouts and a wicked great giveaway!

Hey! It's Tuesday! You know what that means right? Um, it's Tuesday! Whatevah! Cristina, who is my son Nate's therapist (for Autism), and pretty much the nicest person I know, seriously, gave me this shirt yesterday! I guess she must hear me say it all of the time, LOL! Nothing like a little self confidence, right! I love it!
 


The other day I got a fabulous "happy box" from Denise! It had tons of beautiful Jenni Bowlin goodies, some Heidi Swapp, lots of lace cardstock, some Teresa Collins stuff. So inspiring! I love getting new goodies. I created these layouts for her:

 

 

 


I love being her personal scrapper and she loves to shop! It's a win/win thing! The problem is the girl sends me too much. Sometimes she sends the same stuff 2 or 3 times because she loves it so much! I told her she I was going to start sharing some of it with my friends who scrap and she was all for it. She loves to read your comments too! So, from now on, when I get a "happy box", one of YOU get a "happy box".

The other day I shared my news with you that I will be designing some stamps to be produced in the near future (thanks to my friend KIM!) Well, Kim sent me some suggestions of some stuff she would love to see on stamps with my handwriting so I want to hear from you too. Leave me a comment and let me know what you would love to see in rubber (keep it clean, LOL!) Do you have a favorite quote or catch phrase or are there sentiments you want?

I will pick a winner at random on Wednesday night (after the Red Sox playoff game of course!) for one lucky duck who will get some fabulous stuff!

Good luck and GO SOX!
love to ya!

Oh my gosh, Lori! I am so laughing about your new tee! That is TOO funny!
Love your pages you made! How cool is that scrapping/shopping dealie you've got going. Definitely a win-win situation! She is way lucky to have you doing her pages.
Can't wait to see some of your new stamp creations. I'm a big card-maker, so I always think of sentiments that can be used as card greetings. Thinking of anything like that?

How exciting to get to design some stamps! I don't have any suggestions for sayings though...I'm not good with that sort of stuff.

I'm also envious of your scrapping/shopping situation. I'd love to be in a situation like that.

Nicole said...

Those LO's are wonderful! How awesome that you guys can work together like that!

You know what I'd like to see you do is a set of sentiment stampst that could be used for a bunch of different things, things that aren't "cutesie" - like a set of congratulations stamps where you mix and match the words. (Congratulations...on your new home, on your special day, on your new job...)

Gosh...can I send you some of my photos? I mean...you're kind of a big deal...ya know. LOL!

LOVE those layouts. The photos in the last one are so awesome! Bright and crisp. Great job!

How exciting that you are going to get to create some stamps. I'm thinkin' it would be fun to do some that had text messaging lingo since that seems to be the hot thing right now. ;)

That is the greatest shirt!!! You need to do a page of yourself wearing it! I love reading your blog, because I can totally hear that Boston accent shining through. All of your layouts are beautiful! I love the 4 years one most. Amazing colors. As for stamps, how about some snarky kinds of sayings like the one on your shirt!

Chica Chica chica....
The shirt is cracking me up. Tina is hilarious GMTA! It so good to see your face. I feel like I haven't seen you in forever!!! Glad it seems like your pay it forward happy boxes are a hit. Getting ready to drive home to go to Verizon and have all my contacts loaded into my new life line.
Love ya and thanks again for the FABULOUS creations so excited to get them. MUAH

How exciting! I love your handwriting and this is a great way to get it for myself! I am sure you will think of so many things to put on the stamps....I just can't wait to see them!
Your layouts look great, your friend is so lucky to have you to create for her! :)

Staci said...

Heheha, love the shirt - i've always loved that saying! Such a cool arrangement you and denise have! Gorgeous LO's you did for her! And how nice of you to spread the wealth :-) Since i'm not a cardmaker, I would just love to see your stamps as an alphabet, so I could use them for titles for layouts - that's definitely what I use stamps for the most... I love my alpha stamps!!

Leslie Ashe said...

Ok that t-shirt is ADORABLE!!
SO ARE YOU! If you want to be - then go ahead because I want to be YOU because you're so COOL!!!!! ;)

Gorgeous pages too girl----wow!!!!!!

I'm so excited for you and your stamps!! I'm anxious to see everything!

I know a great sentiment...
your t-shirt!
You're good with words - you will make the BEST stamps EVER!

Leigh said...

I love that tee-shirt, Lori-- so cute!!
I would love to see a stamp that says "together."

TheShermanFam said...

Ok...
1.) you should totally not be scared of the LASIK...I was terrified, but it was not bad at all!
2.) your Tshirt is frickin' hilarious...LOL!!
3.) How fun! Being a personal scrapper for someone...I'm kinda jealous...or maybe my shirt should say..."I'm not a big deal...at ALL!" HA!
4.) I use the words "seriously?" or "really?" entirely too much...a stamp might come in handy with these words..
Sorry for the novel...

Marie said...

Lori, You already know that I've always thought you were quite the big deal! :) And I'm so proud of your stamping designs. I'm gonna have to get inspired to finish a few layouts. How about an anti cancer stamp-- something like "cancer sucks" or Megan's favorite saying "f--- cancer". Yeah, you're right, not a huge market there...

Love ya hon...

Annelies said...

My favorite subject are traveling photo's, so I would like quotes in this theme for my scrapbook (to Travel is to Live; Not knowing your destination is half the fun!; etc.)
A friend of mine is waiting for adoption and says she doesn't find a lot for this, so maybe this is also an idea.
Thanks for a chance to win!
Greetings from Belgium, Annelies
