The Sky is Falling! The Sky is Falling!

Did I catch your attention?! YES! A meteor went through the sky last night, just after midnight. Here are the pictures from our security cameras (the time says 1:07 because we haven't changed the time when Daylight Saving Time changed). I was on my computer facing away from the computer, but Kevin saw it! He yelled up the stairs to me, "Jana! Did you see that?! Did you see that?!" It was about 8 seconds long, but I was lost in internet-surfing-world.

It was so bright, that it turned off the street lamp! It actually looks like mid-day in these pictures. How neat is that?!

GO HERE to see the local news coverage story. WOW!!! So cool!!!



The Cuttlebug Challenge Blog has asked me to come on as a designer and I couldn't be more thrilled!!! :D :D :D The gals over there are dripping with creativity. You should see the things they create with the Cuttlebug embossing folders!!! WOW!!! I love my Cuttlebug embossing folders and can't wait to push the limits in applying them to my scrapbook pages! WooHOOOO! Thank you, Maggie, for this wonderful opportunity!

Right now they are having a blog hop. Go to this post at the Cuttlebug Challenge Blog for more information and to get started! Have fun!

Well, I had to make a page using the Cuttlebug to go along with my fun news. So here is one using the Robots Unplugged Collection by My Little Shoebox .

I used the Tiny Bubbles Embossing Folder on the chipboard letters. To accent the texture I filled in each little circle with Tickle Me Turquoise Shimmerz by Shimmerz Paints . (I also accented the robot and his ice cream cone with Tickle Me Turquoise, Poinsettia Pink, and Key Lime Shimmerz. The ice cream cone is accented with Pixie Dust Blingz to make it sparkle.)

The circle die cut with the number "6" on it is embossed with the Stitched Circles embossing folder. I dragged a black ink pad across the raised area to highlight it. LOVE the look of it!

For the bookpaper ruffles, I used Eucalyptus and Baby's Breath Spritz by Shimmerz. Love the way it adds texture and dimension around the page.

I will start my official Design Team duties for the Cuttlebug Challenge blog in January. Watch for those projects beginning after the New Year.:D :D :D

Thanks for letting me share!
See you again soon!
