What I've been doing....

Happy Tuesday Everyone! Hope you all had a relaxing and fabulous Memorial weekend.

First a little shout out and KUDOS to Glue Arts for their fabulous customer service.  I purchased their Glue Glider Pro and PermaTac adhesive a few months ago and right from the start it would not 'glid' as it advertised. After several tries I gave up. While on facebook, I mentioned to fellow scrapper my frustration with the product. The next day I received a message asking me to contact them in regards to my problems with their product, so I did.  It was a nice surprised by how quick and eager they were to help solve my dilemma asking if they sent a return label, if I would return my adhesive cartridges for 'testing'.  So I did and a few days later not only did they send the return envelop, but they sent replacements! SO THANK YOU Glue Arts for the fabulous customer service.

I have been super busy (I'm sure everyone has) with end of the year activities, finals and crafting.

Here are a few pics of what I have been creating.

Scraps of Darkness - Now and Zen

Happy Tuesday! Hope everyone is having a great week so far.  Welcome and hello to all my new followers.

When I returned to scrapbooking and started blogging, I found this amazing kit club that I absolutely love called Scraps of Darkness.  I love the variety of the kits and of course all the wonderful and talented ladies I have met since joining.

The kits are released on the 15th of each month but to guarantee that you receive it, I would suggest joining because they sell out fast!  There are also fabulous color, floral and cardstock add-ons each month.  When you receive your kit, you also receive a sketch with it that will help get your creative juices flowing.

May Kit

Below is the sketch and my layout using this fabulous kit and to see more from the Design Team, go HERE.

Make sure you stop by Scraps of Darkness yourself and join for next month, and don't forget to tell them I sent you!

Also, don't forget about my giveaway still happen HERE.

Until next time - happy scrappin'! ~ Carol
