Well, this is a new thing to do:
I'm so happy to see I've got many visitors to read this blog of mine.
Thanks you all for stopping by...

Like the talented Jennifer McGuire announced recently in her blog ( I'm copying her idea too...:), I'd like to "say a thank you" for people who come, read and leave a comment by starting today with RANDOM GIVEAWAYS.

It's simple: just leave a comment or answer the question from my post and I'll randomly pick a person and a prize* time by time.
*the name of the winner and the prize will be written in the text block I've created - located at sidebar's up right.

Now the image above you see is from a japanese gallery we visited weeks ago at San Francisco, they were displaying many of these artworks - simply beautiful. Just sharing!

Hope to hear from you!

Lya - learning everyday goodness through creativity.

STAMPAGANZA # 4 - Art & Soul Featured

This stamp set(HEARTFELT CHRISTMAS - C1378) became one of my favorite for this holiday's projects.
And here I'm sharing the card I made for the recent Close To My Heart Regionals Celebration event's contest.

As you can see, these stamps can be used in so many ways...I used 4 different images to create the background strips on a variety of different paper colors and patterns. Then added a shiny look with a touch of Liquid Glass onto the intricate image details. The sentiment square was embellished with few tiny buttons within matching colors. Easy and simple.
You can have this stamp set by getting it through the STAMPAGANZA special offer( buy 2 get 1 free*) or go to the CTMH TV - Art & Soul newest episode (Nov.10) watch the show and purchase it with a special discount, through MyCTMH online shop - and under product code (AS1019).

Happy Monday!

November Trips - part I

Today we're heading to the 2009 Regional Celebration (Oregon-Portland) nov.6-7.
I'm so happy...and with reasons: it's our first time traveling together, driving across the state(my sweet husband, our busy toddler and me). It's my first R.C. and first time coming to Oregon too. But the biggest one is because today is my honey's and my dad's birthday!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO YOU 2 = my best friends in life!
For the next days I'll share some more of our trip and the R.C.. :)
Now just a reminder - if you already got the news that now you can buy the Close to My Heart retired stamps ( no longer available in current catalog and only while supplies last) DIRECTLY from my CTMH website , with the convenience of 24/7 shopping service just for you.
You'll find a section in the sidebar specially created for these "soon-to-be gone" stamp sets.
You can also take advantage of this month's STAMPAGANZA deal (buy 2 get 1 stamp set FREE*) to earn some of these goodies!
*The free stamp set will be equal or lesser value of the purchased sets.
The sample scrapbook layout you see here has the stamp image from the same set I've shown another day - I made a card ( remember?).
Well, this set (#C1301-thing of beauty) is in the RETIRED list and I find it truly worthy to share.
Have a great day!
Lya - C, with Love.
