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:)

On the 1st day of Christmas...and SURPRISE!

Frosted Designs blog told me...
Use 1 bird on your project, link and share... 

I am so excited to be the 1st artist to share my project on the Frosted Designs Blog during our 12 days of Christmas challenge.  At the bottom of this post, I also have an exciting SURPRISE for all of you that live in SO CAL and want to learn how to create your own Mixed Media canvas!
In true 12 days of Christmas fashion, for the 1st day of Christmas, please use 1 bird on your project. This can be a layout, a card, or an off the paper project.  It will be FUN to have it be a winter/holiday themed project, but any project is welcome.
I can't wait to see what you all create:)
On to my project:
I have been obsessed recently with mixed media and had so much fun making this canvas:)

You left the nicest comment on my blog this morning and I just had to come over to visit yours. I LOVE it! Love how you write - natural and uninhibited, and your personality and humor comes right through. I've visited your other blogs as well, and you've inspired me to open a second page on my blog about MY travels because my blog isn't just about cardmaking. Back to your primary blog - I love the fact that you give details and instructions (and even tutorials!) on your projects. I'm detail-oriented and love learning new techniques from others. While I'm not a scrapper, there is much inspiration in your scrapbook pages. This was long-winded, but I just wanted you to know that you have a new follower, and I look forward to visiting you more often! And I'm thrilled to have found the FD site, too! Have a lovely holiday, and Merry Christmas!
