Oh Chester...you had me at hello....























**Please click here to go to my massive blog candy available until Jan 31st**

So "officially" the sneak peeks are starting up for the January Kraftin' Kimmie stamps release but I bet some of you saw the early peeks on last Saturday's challenge and for the Cute Card Thursday challenge that some of the DT used. We just couldn't wait to ink up and show off our creations after our Christmas break! I fell in love with Chester right away and have tons of ideas on how to use him. Wouldn't he look great on a wedding scrapbook page! Michele showed him off yesterday with touches of green to his suit and used the new sentiment Top of the mornin' to you! Love it!!!! I love anything with a touch of Irish or St. Patty's day theme.

This release is PACKED with amazing images from all 3 Kraftin' Kimmie artists. Please click here to go to the challenge blog to see which DT are showing off their peeks today. Come back Saturday for more peeks and our weekly challenge. Then Sunday is the big day when you can go to the KK store and buy them for yourself!

Okay, funny story time. So I was snapping away trying to get some pics that would be good enough for today's post. I had my floor lamp dragged over to my photo tent and bent over the top and then my 2 OTT lights on either side squished against the tent as best as I could to cast some light. You see the lights that came with my tent both fell- at different times- in slow motion a short distance onto my plush carpet and both refuse to work now. **sigh** So my make-shift lighting looked absurd but I kept going trying to get the best shots. Thankfully I took them at different angles because in the reflection of the shiny silver paper you can actually see a blurry image of me taking the pic lol!!!! I have included a small pic below for you to see what I am talking about- click on it to enlarge it and then look on the left hand side of the silver paper-....it's me!!!!!


It reminds me of those Ebay ads I have seen where someone takes a pic of something like a shiny toaster or a vase on a windowsill and you can see their reflection in it...and for some reason they are usually naked....I can promise you I was NOT naked while taking these pics lolz!!!!!

Enjoy the peeks and your day! Andrea
