All you have to do is share an organizing tip, product, idea for a scrap room...or heck it could be for anything in your house. I need help in that area too! If you have any links, that'd be great!
Good luck everyone and leave an email address if I don't have any way to contact you. For shipping purposes I'd better leave this open to only US folks.

Title: How to be a princess according to Emma
You have a prince charming
Eat what you want when you want
Wear makeup with everything
Dessert for dinner
You don't drink tap water. Only bottled
Be a daddy's girl
Always wear a crown
Have a sweet set of wheels
Your own pony
Toys Toys Toys
Always wear designer shades
Also included are some with stickers. They say:
Being a princess is a hard job but someone's gotta do it
Don't call me a princess, don't call me a queen, just call me the cutest Lil' Princess you've ever seen.
It's hard being the princess...but one day I'll be the queen.
They are the magazine that I had my very first pub ever in! I found out they cruised by my blog and are now sending some scrappy goodness my way! Can't wait to see what it is and you know me I'll be posting some future creations using some of it!
Paper on all the cards is from Making Memories Passport Collection. Flower is Martha Stewart, Brad is Making Memories, Happy Bday sticker is EK Success Inspirables and ribbon is ????. I inked everything up with Clearsnap Chesnut Roan. Card is 4 1/4 x 6 1/4.
*Card removed for publication in April 2009 CARDS Magazine.
Also used Making Memories brads, Paper Studio bling and EK Success Inspirable sentiment. This is a mini at 3 x 3 1/2.

I tackled both sketches over there this week. I made them at a 12 hr crop today. While there I went outside to take pics so I could get posted tonight. It was windy and they kept blowing over so I propped them up in the back of the van. At least the scrappers inside couldn't see me...they'd wonder who that nut is outside taking pics of her cards!
I used my goodies I won from Emma's Paperie. I even made a layout with it too, but you'll have to wait until tomorrow to see it - darn wind! I love the colors of the Pink Paislee Pop Fashion line. I used papers and Topsiders (chipboard piece and stickers). Also used Prima flowers and bling, American Crafts Thickers, KI Memories sticker, Paper Studio button and jewels.

*Easter Box removed for publication in Paper Crafts Cards and Gifts published Spring/Summer 2009.
I threw in a little something extra with this one - a card! I used DCWV Baby Boy Nursery stack and Craft N Craftin' stickers. I think those stickers are just adorable! I will have to hide this little box from my daughter or I know her...she'll claim as her own!
This little wedding box could be used for decor at a bridal shower or even at a wedding. I used Reminisce paper (it's hard to see in the paper, but there are glitter hearts on it), Fancy Pants playing card (this ended up being the same size as the box - happy accident), Paper Studio bling and some ribbon scraps.
This could be used for a baby shower or even as nursery decor. Some more DCWV Baby Boy Nursery stack and Paper Studio brad and chipboard circle.
I'm teaching the 5 year old Sunday School class this year, so I'm planning to use these boxes for a craft project. Probably even more than once!
P.S. Found out that 2 of my cards will be in the January 09 issue of Cards. Sweet!

I made this for this week's sketch at 2 Sketches 4 You. Size 4x6.
I made this for the patterned paper layout challenge at Use Your Stash. Size 8 1/2 x 11. I kind of created them in reverse. I made the Merci card for my DT work, then the layout and then the Thanks card.
Be sure to sign up for my giveaway too.
ETA: I got a BOB mention over on Card of the Week :-)
And in the spirit of all my winning of goodies lately I will be having a giveaway. I will be posting the details tomorrow. I am watching my nephews tonight and between them and my two children...I'd better not stay on here much longer...lol.

The Becoming Green line from Tinkering Ink also included some of my current faves...butterflies! I was on a huge flower kick for awhile and now I seem to have moved onto butteflies. I used the Martha Stewart classic butterfly punch (it accidentally fell in my cart at WM the other day) to punch some of the butterflies from the paper. I added some Prima bling and Doodlebug ABC's. This card is actually more of a mini card at 3x3.
Last but not least I dug into more of my Reminisce papers. It is from the Girly Girl line. I used my EK Success photo corner punch along with some white Pioneer photo corners, once again Doodlebug ABC rubons and Darice bling and pop dotted behind the middle flower for dimension. Size is 4x4.
These were my patterned paper challenge items for August and you can check out what the rest of the design team made at Use Your Stash. Don't forget there is a very cool prize from Cosmo Cricket up for grabs so be sure to get out that paper and enter!

Then on Friday I got an email requesting a card I made for their sketch call. This was one of the cards I didn't think I'd get emailed out in time because of the fiber options line being cut nearby. But luckily right before midnight I was able to get on long enough to send...whew!
Not sure how many creations I'll be posting next week. Busy with some DT work and need to get some stuff ready to send to some mags. I need to tweak a couple projects and get all the paper work filled out yet. Also a bunch of calls I want to submit to. I'm trying to get my submitting process organized. I'm a little better, but still failing miserably. Plus yahoo has been hating me the last couple of days and not letting me in much!
Anyhoo, hope everyone has a good rest of the weekend. We are headed to the State Fair tomorrow. I'm praying for no humidity, but since we are skipping church to go, I doubt I'll get my wish :-)

Then I got a call from school. Miss Emma (who is in Kindergarten) is testing at a 2nd grade reading level, so they are going to do some more reading with her...go Emma! The day was still on a high note because we actually had a night where we weren't running to activities. I had a couple more cards I wanted to make for a call that ended today. I get home and find out that our internet is out because of some doo hickey that went down and they didn't know when it'd be up. I guess it affected a lot of people. I went ahead and made the cards and crossed my fingers I'd get online in time.
After putting the kids to bed I went into our mudroom where the freezer is and find the door wide open. It has been this way for the last 24 hours! Originally I thought it was my fault, but turns out it was the hubby. There was actually no yelling though and everything is cleaned up...he had been wanting to clean it out for a while...well he got his wish! I still can't get onto our computer, but finally I was able to get on the laptop. I had to do some fancy magic in order to get the pictures onto the laptop, but the cards have been sent off. Of course I know they probably won't get any love, but I tried anyway! So I guess that means the night ended on a high note...internet is back (well sort of anyway).
P.S. Pampered Chef stuff I thought was indestructible...but you can melt the handle on the pizza cutter!!!!

I was excited to find out today that I won their July Challenge Contest. It was to create paper decorations using Daisy D's paper and embellishments. I used the Wonder Years line. I created a card, banner, cup and hat. I used brads to connect the animals' arms so you can actually move them. I was really happy with the way it turned out..I guess Daisy D's was too :-) I can't wait to get some new Daisy D's goodies to play with!
