Thank you Scrapcetera and Sarah!

This month the DT had the pleasure of working with Scrapcetera Kits. I was really happy and excited that the owner of Scrapectera, Sarah, said yes to sponsor TMS this month! She does a really good job with her kits and I'm sure that is what all her customers say! If you haven't check her site out, here is a link: SCRAPCETERA

And here is what our DT had to say...

Sandy says:
"I just have to say that this month's sponsor ROCKED! Scrapcetera Kits are awesome and they sure do outdo themselves on putting these yummy kits together! The items in the kit were from Bella Blvd. and I have fallen in love with them! I was able to get quite a bit done with this kit and I STILL have stuff left over to use.

At first I was kind of like, hmmmmm, not sure what I am gonna do with this, because it just isn't my style. But once I got going with it, I just couldn't stop! The creativity was just flowing and flowing and flowing! The colors in the kit are very vibrant and easy to match up with other items. And the monster characters were so so cute! And of course I can use my grandson on those pages, because let's face it....he's a little monster, lol. I have never been able to do so much with one kit. The embellishments that were sent were totally cool! I love them them! The rafia, ribbon and buttons, oh and the little tags were to die for! Oh and I can't forget the sticker sheet. I don't like stickers, but I used these! I loved them!

I still have a few things in mind that I want to create with my leftovers from the kit! So hopefully you will be seeing more soon!

So, I highly recommend that you hop right on over to Scrapcetera and get one of their kits asap!!!! You won't be disappointed!"

Janet says:
"October is my favorite month and my kit from Scrapcetera Paper Kits made it even better. The kit included papers from Jillibean Soup and Bella Blvd. The wonderful Halloween and Fall themes made it so easy to create a ton of layouts and cards. I designed about 10 cards and 3 layouts and still have a lot of product to work with. I was so excited to work with the monsters in the Jillibean collection. It made making Halloween cards and layouts so much fun! Even the embellishments that came with the kit were great. Working with the October kit really inspired me to scrap! Thanks to Sarah from Scrapcetera for sponsoring us and thanks to Christa for getting us such a great sponsor!"

Time to take a little breather

I wanted to let you all be the first to know...

As of November 1st, there will be no DT. The reason for this is:

1.) I'm moving into our 'sardine/renovation-of-a-mess' home November 1st and it's gonna get pretty hairy living a 2/1 home w/ 5 people, a cat and a dog.
2.) We are going away on vacation for a week Thanksgiving week and part of the weekend before (Nov 20-27)
3.) The holiday's always puts a damper on DT creations, submissions and participation

So...I am going to be here still talking my ear off to you all. I will post on the blog, FB and tweet about our group. Don't stop coming...the ideas of creativity will be flowing still (got some things I want to post for the holidays) so don't shy away, bring your friends b/c come January....we are back in business!

This time away from having a DT and getting sponsors will help me reflect on many things, both here and at home. I hope that you can understand. I've been running this site (with help from many past and present members) since March 2008 and have been going till now. We've had our ups and downs when it comes to members...but TMS is still standing (even if we have little participation). Recognition is key and that's what makes this site hopping. I want to thank everyone that has been here, past...present...and future.

Just b/c we won't have a DT doesn't mean we are not alive!!

If you have any suggestions for me please send a PM on our message board or you can email me at:
