The Big Shot

Image
I know it seems like a lot of money...$99.95 IS a lot of money.! But then I looked at what all the Big Shot from Sizzix can do and I decided it was worth it. I really like that the Big Shot Run can use all sorts of dies and folders from many manufactures (Spellfinders, Dreamweavers, Cuttlebug, My Paper Studio, etc)to cut and emboss on a wide variety of materials.

And, if you've been waiting for the right time to purchase a Big Shot, that time is August! When you buy a Big Shot during the month of August, you'll receive your choice of one of five FREE exclusive stamp set and Framelits bundles --that's up to a $60 US value absolutely free! If you already own a Big Shot, we're also offering a 15-percent discount on these select bundles.

Check back on August 1 to get all of the details on my website http://chaotickristi.stampinup.net/

This is my first ever Creative Challenge submission. Thought I would go ahead and make one for camping since my bestie & I just got back from a wonder-filled 8 days of camping and hiking and sights.
Here is the sketch that we had to follow: I distressed the edges of the mat & background pieces. Banner Framelits used for mat under lantern. Lantern is stamped on leftover piece of pool party paper where I used scalloped edge punch on (under sentiment). The sentiment & the lantern are from "The Great Outdoors" stamp set. All supplies are StampinUp! and are available from my online store (see links below).

Good to be home

Well, we made it out and back...what a wonderful trip! Georgia, Tennesse, N Carolina, Alabama and then back to Mississippi, all in 8 days. Lots of falls, caverns, hiking and sights along the way.

Before I left for vacation, a friend of a friend asked me about the job I do and if I thought her daughter would be suited for it. Explained I ws unable to determine suitability but that I could explain a typical day to her. After I did, she decided to not even bring it up to her daughter.

Most people think I have a cushy job because I only work (in a typical week) 3 days a week. Even though those 3 days garner me anywhere from 34-39 hours, they still think "Oh, still only 40 hours... and 4 days off...great deal!" So, I told my corkers about the chat and they, too, rolled their eyes. It was mentioned I should line out just what a day in dialysis looks like... so I did!
Here it is.. good luck deciphering it
