Frugal Scrapper Extraordinaire:)

For those of you who have been following my blog, THANK YOU, I'm still here and as FRUGAL as ever. I'm just expanding my blog title to further reflect my "altered" muse. I'm still the same (sometimes goofy) FRUGAL SCRAPPER that I've always been and will continue to focus on FRUGAL papercrafting projects:)

200th Post and a 365 Card Challenge, whoo hoo!

Wow, I can't believe this is my 200th post!  How cool is that?  I just LOVE my BLOG:)  Now, I've been blogging for a little over 2 years now, and I'm sure some of you out in blog land have MANY more than 200 posts in that much time, but for me this is TRULY a see, I tend to jump in with BOTH FEET when I get into a new interest....then when the novelty wears off, I peder out....

I do have to say, I've had a few "breaks" in my blogging over the last 2 years (when my "other" life has gotten the best of me, lol), but I'm really PROUD of ME for sticking with this AMAZING hobby!

Thanks to all of you who have been following (and a few of know who you are...that have been "lurking" along the way....Hey, I have an idea:)....wouldn't it be REALLY KEWL to have 200 followers, too?  Since I'm not an OVERLY TECHY person...I'm not sure how to combine my fb followers and the blogger followers...It appears as though I have almost 100 followers between the two but I'm sure some are may be a bit harder to really know how many followers there are...hmmmmmmm...well I'm going to start working on a goal to increase interest in my lil ol' blog.  Any ideas are greatly appreciated:)  I want to do something I'll have to put on my thinking cap...I can smell the "wood" burnin' already, heehee.

O.k., 'nough of that, I need to get to my project for 365 Cards...of course there is TONS of inspiration out there, and this was no exception.  I do have to say that I liked the sample so much that I simply "copied" it (well, the sketch anyway).  Here's my project:

I think by now, you all probably know that I just LOVE inspirational quotes...I know this one is by no means original, but ya know...sometimes ya just have to go back to the simple things...those things ya REALLY KNOW, but still FORGET to DO!...I'm just sayin'....

In true frugal scrappin' style, I'm still forcing myself to use "just the scraps, ma'am"...Here I found some REALLY OLD Rusty Pickle paper, some Cloud Nine Designs paper, as well as some that I have NO IDEA who's it is because the nice strips on the edge of the paper are missing.  I added some ribbon I've had for YEARS and some roses I picked up a the Fabric Barn in Long Beach.

Thanks, 365 Cards for giving me yet another inspirational project to create from.
