I made this kit for the december UST IT ALL challenge at RAKscraps but right now the site is having difficulties with being overrun with spam. so while the spam fighting stuff is being updated I have not posted any new challenges there for the month. I hate to let a good fun kit go to waste so I could keep it for next months challenge but it is more fun to give it away here.  SO hope you like the new kit and pleas elink back to your page  or pages I love to see what people can do with my kits!!!!

Along with scrapbooking I also love paper quilling. I have been quilling for years but I have not been making too much because what do I do with the things that I made I used to put them in my paper scrapbooks but since I really only do digital scrapbooking my neat creations have just been sitting in a box. I pulled them out last week and dipped them into modgepodge glue and let it dry and attached a magnet to the back and I love how they turned out so Now I am re-obsessed with quilling here are a few things I have made.

Burts Bees Free sample winner

As a Bzz agent I was give free Burts Bees intense Hydration skin care products to try and review.
So I have been using the Burts Bees intense hydration skin care products now for about 2 weeks and I love it. Before this BZZ campaign I was using Burts Bees sensitive Skin care products I started using that about 6 months ago and I was a little worried about changing products but I have to say the intense hydration is also very kind to my sensitive skin. The cleanser leaves my skin feeling clean and the night cream feels great and my skin is less dry of course. I have also had a chance to try the hydration mask with my baby girl . we had a little spa time together and it also felt great and you dont wash the mask off after after five minutes you use a soft tissue to take off the majority if it and then rub the rest into your skin and wow it is an awesome moisturizer. So last week I posted  a fee sample give away  to anyone who commented. I got one response from ANDREA so please send your mailing address to SUNDROPS260@GMAIL.COM and I will send out your sample. I also received an email from someone who was having a hard time posting a comment for some reason and to be fair I am also sending a sample out to her.
Thank you for reading and responding. HOPE you enjoy the product as much as I do!!

hey everyone I got a new bzz for you.
This time I got a free sample of

COVERGIRL & OLAY   Luminous coverage for ageless, radiant looking skin. 

I received both the foundation and pressed powder from bzz agent. My job is to try it out and tell them what I think and share my expirence with others as well. I really hate thick or heavy makeup and like a very natural look. I think the secret to wearing make up is to look like you are not wearing makeup. I was happy with covergirl as it is not too tick and it feels very moistureizing. I do not use a foundation every day but when I need one this is a great option. The pressed powder is something I can and will use daily. it is also light and not cakey. it does not have an unpleasant odor like some powders do and the cover is very even.  for me this set of products is a successs.

I am a bzz agent which means I got a coupon for a free candy product and some buy one get one free coupons to give away. It was not easy to find cvs is having a hard time keeping this candy stocked but I did finally find it this weekend so I got 3 bags of the unreal41 which is the candy coated chocolate. they were very good and My children loved them also. Less guilt about giving  kids candy as it is void of all the extra junk.  cant wait to try the other varities when I can find them in the store..

My daughters birthday is July 10 but because we like to have a big party on the 4th of july we made it a birthday/independance day party. she still gets to choose her theme for activities during the day and we have fireworks at night!!
Kit is Spirit Of America FS Kit by Midnight Velvet at southerncomfortscraps.

my children with sparklers on the 4th of july
journaling reads: sparklers are delightful to the children and I love to see
the smile on their faces but as a mom It still a little scary to see fire in their hand. But with super safety dad watching I knew they would be ok.

so as a buzz agent I get to try out new products and tell the world what I think. Well this month I got to try there all new ball park Flame Grilled patties. they are frozen fully cooked burgers that can  go from frozen to meal in about 60 seconds. well I have never been a huge burger fan but you know who is........ yeah my husband so He tried them and was inpresed by the quality. So as an agent I could not have reported truthfully without trying them myself and I have to say I was surprised by the flavor it was really good.My kids loved them, We even served them to friends who came over for a BBQ party and they all agreed Ball park patties were quality burgers. I cant say I have been converted into a burger lover but I would not hate it if I had to eat them again.  So for a quick on the run meal Ball park patties are a pretty good choice.  we tried the regular flavor not the cheese  but I think I will get the cheese for my husband to try next time I go shopping as men are easier to feed then understand!!!!!!!
