This is it...

my very last project that I have made. If my mojo never returns then I guess this is my last post... I'm hoping that isn't the case, though. I am going to spend some time in my stamp room today...crossing my fingers that maybe my mojo is just hiding under a container of Blingz and when I clean up my stamp table today, I find it, LOL.
Thanks for listening to my whining and all of the support everyone has given! Wish me luck today!

Here is a scrapbook page that I made. I was doing this for a challenge that required the use of a bottlecap, bubbewrap and a specific circle background stamp from Stamping Bella. I have to say that it was definitey a challenge since I wasn't particularly fond of any of the 3 elements. I did my best and did manage to use all 3 (the red bull's eye flower centers are a portion of the background stamp that I cut out with a circle punch, the bottlecap is the large blue flower's center and I inked up bubblewrap and stamped it as a background on the blue cs)
The shimmery flowers are white Primas that I painted with Gold Glimmerz Blingz that I got from Jacksonbelle Embellishments. OMG, I LOVE LOVE LOVE the new Blingz! I can't wait for them to come out in more colors! For more info on them check out the Shimmerz blog HERE!
I included a couple close-up photos of the flowers. It is hard to catch their real beauty in a photo...they are GORGEOUS in real life. I was just thrilled with how they turned out! I also painted the chipboard letters for the word BEST with the Gold Blingz...they are GORGEOUS!
Supplies used: Stamps from Stamping Bella and Autumn Leaves, Bazzill CS, SU CS, Prima flowers, SU Build a Brad, Dress It Up glitter dots, Hero Arts self adhesive rhinestones, Botttlecap, Daisy D rub-on, bubblewrap, cuttlebug alphabet dies, Shimmerz Gold Glimmerz Blingz.

We are having an early Thanksgiving with Tom's family on Saturday (which I'm not looking forward to) and it is also the annual One of A Kind rubber stamp expo here in town this weekend (which I have been looking forward to all year!). I plan on trying to hit the expo for a hour or so before Tom's family comes on Saturday and then do some real shopping at the expo on Sunday. I'm so glad I ordered my ticket early and got the 2 day pass!
I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and I hope I have something new to share soon!

That scrapbook page is AWESOME!!! I'm so wishing I could go to the stamping expo with you. Tht sounds like so much fun. I am stamping at Kisa's on Saturday. I can't wiat, I have done so little stamping and I really miss it.

Good luck today, I think you still have your mojo from the posts of your projects. It obviously has been sneeking in when you don't even know it's there!!!

My gosh, this page is stunning!! You have done an awesome job on it!! I think that the reason why you are having such a hard time getting your muse to return is that you are trying to force it to come back instead of letting it come back naturally. But at the same time this page shows that your muse is going strong...
