One lucky hopper will win our brand new SEA LIFE 8x8 Album Kit! It's so new, we don't even have a picture yet, but trust me, I've heard about the goodies it comes with, and you want this prize!!!
Welcome to the August Creative Cuts and More Blog Hop! This month we are focusing on acetate!

This is a regular A2 card. CC&M's acetate is a very high quality & sturdy acetate. The cards come in MANY sizes, your favorite size is sure to be available!

In addition to the acetate card, I used the INSIDE, or cutout piece of another die cut window card, the Filigree Frame Square Scalloped Card. Obviously you wouldn't use it on the card it came out of, what would be the point? So you have the pretty piece cut OUT of one card, and ready to use on another project! Also, all the flowers are die cuts from CC&M. I had them all cut from Bazzill Bling, so they have a beautiful shimmer.

The precious elephant is from Polka Dot Parade, a set I won from Layers of Color. Layers of Color is a small up and coming stamp company with a talented artist and lots of wonderful stamps! This elephant is just one small example of their terrific collection!
This is the Basket with Handle. Just pretend it's full of Jordan Almonds or something that would be perfect for a shower or party. I guess we papercrafters would rather see buttons, though!!
CC&M is also introducing a brand new All Occasions Card Kit! These are so much fun! You get so many terrific goodies, all pre-coordinated for you and ready to go! You can enjoy cardmaking without having to paw through all those supply drawers! No more, "I thought I had so & so, but I can't find it!" It's all right there at your fingertips! How fun is that?
The Blog Hop coupon code is acetatebloghop0809, and you can spend it at Creative Cuts & More!

This is the cover and first inside page of the 8x8 Mini Album Set. It's a huge value! You can make a 20 page album with this heavy weight acetate. It comes with a protective plastic sheet on the front and back of every page.

I used Cosmo Cricket's Love Notes {06} and lots of Copper Stickles and Chestnut Brown Glimmer Mist. The butterflies are dies from CC&M. I love having them on hand, and have put them on so many projects this summer!

I hope you are enjoying our fun ACETATE blog hop! Now to see what the brilliant Chrissy has been up to, go here: Creating with Chrissy.

Well you have certainly been a busy lady. Love your elephant card, not like I am a huge sucker for Polka Dots or anything, so yes I just adore him/her. What a wonderful photo album. The acetate stuff looks very cool. You've embellished beautifully so I can see that it is quit sturdy. Great job, Copper is one of the colors for this weeks color challenge on PCP!!!

China and Russia put the blame on some screwed up experiments of US for the earthquake that happened in Haiti.
Chinese and Russian Military scientists, these reports say, are concurring with Canadian researcher, and former Asia-Pacific Bureau Chief of Forbes Magazine, Benjamin Fulford, who in a very disturbing video released from his Japanese offices to the American public, details how the United States attacked China by the firing of a 90 Million Volt Shockwave from the Americans High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) facilities in Alaska
If we can recollect a previous news when US blamed Russia for the earthquake in Georgio. What do you guys think? Is it really possible to create an earthquake by humans?
I came across this [url=]article about Haiti Earthquake[/url] in some blog it seems very interesting, but conspiracy theories have always been there.

I just joined this good site. I found loads of useful information here. I would also like to add up some thing for this community. I would like to share some [url=]quick weight loss tips[/url]. If you want to know how to lose 10 lb in a calendar week, you are likely not looking for a general diet and work out plan. You can lose weight with a common diet and exercise plan, However this demands a lot of time doing intensive cardio workouts and binding to a strict diet. Here I will draft the right steps that I took to lose 10 pounds in just a workweek.

1. Keep Distance from all deep-fried foods for the week
2. Drink an 8oz glass of Citrus paradisi with breakfast each day. (this speeds up up your metabolism)
3. Consume reasonable portions (stop consuming when you are full)
4. Rather than consuming 3 huge a meals a day, eat 5-6 smaller meals to keep your metabolism up and keep your body burning fat.
5. Do not eat anything after 9pm. Calories do not burn, when you eat so late.
6. Take proper sleep every night. Not having plenty rest has been proved to be a major element to the body storing excess fat.
7. Apply a body/colon clean for the 7 days. This will get rid of needless fat stored close to the tummy area as well as cleanse your body of harmfull pollutants that cause you store fat and feel tired. Flush away excess pounds around the stomach area that otherwise would be hard to lose.
8. I reccomend you using Acai Berry Diet Pills. This one is tested to work, and you can get a free trial.
9. For those individuals who need to burn fat quickly, avoid alcoholic drink.
10[url=].[/url] A low GI diet is an outstanding method of loosing weight quickly.

This might be a bit off-topic but I believe there are a lot of smokers here on I decided to find a good vendor of electronic cigarettes. I'm done with paying so much for tobacco smokes.A friend recommended [url=]G Smoke[/url] According to their website this is how they described their product:
"Green Smoke offers quality Electronic cigarettes with spendable cartridges that compose of the highest smoke volume in the industry. With a variety of flavors and nicotine levels, Green Smoke's™ patented technology offers convenience and performance that is unmatched. G Smoke products have been independently tested for safety."
I'm thinking of buying them. Anyone else have experience with this e-cigarette?

Hi there,

I officially gave up with making money with websites beginning 2010 when I decided to take another approach to making money and not working for a boss. This is when I met James aka 'The Prophet'. James is good at mathematics and he has applied his skills at trading penny stocks. I started trading alongside James and so far I'm having great results. I initially invested $100 which has now grown to $180 in just over a month. How is that for a great return? I invite everyone to join the program and receive daily trading instructions directly in your inbox. You can even give James a call. You don't even have to know how the stock market works. You can get trading within an hour, [url=]PennyStockProphet[/url] Join the proram, it's risk free, you receive a 2 month money-back guarantee. Just thought I'd share my 2 cents worth.
