    I keep meaning to do this

    but there seriously seems to be a lack of hours in the day! Work has gone crazy as old boss got demoted and a new one installed. With that comes growing pains that are more a pain for the rest of us that for boss man LOL. Anyways, amongst other things, I got a few things done for my monthly kit club’s online crop this weekend. Sucks that I always have to work weekends but right now a job is certainly a job! SO I participated in I think 7 of the 14 challenges which I didn’t think was bad considering the fact that I only had about 7 hours…

    a lil sumthin-sumthin…

    🙂 This LO has quickly become one of my favs!!! It was for the Shoe and the challenge was to take elements off of all 5 of the DT’s LOs and make a new one. I ended up making a list of all the things I liked and seeing what I could work in. You’ll have to check out the Shoe for all the LO’s but here is my mash up… Its got a ton of my favs on it! Basic Grey, Pink Paislee, Sassafras Lass and Love, Elsie. For the “lace” I used a piece of lace as a mask and sprayed watered down acrylic paint over it. It…

    I can’t believe it!!!

    I put in my entry for the Scrap Mojo Challenge…  and WON!!! I haven’t entered any blog challenges before these last couple so this is soooooo thrilling!!! They just got some new DT members. I can’t wait to see what the next challenge is!!! The prize was a $15 gift card to Coordinates Collections. I also wanted to post another LO that I did at that crop a couple weeks ago. The pic here is one of my fav’s of my friends son and my dd. Its so sweet!!! The journaling reads: “Its so sweet! Esme loves to call Zachary her lil brother. Its true love!”  They get along better…

    I love Kraft!

    Not the Mac-n-Cheese (though I have been craving that a lot lately hmm).  Kraft. Kraft colored cardstock. I’ve fallen in love with it! It goes with any color. If I can’t find something for my bg that I love I always go back to Kraft. When I fist saw it I was like “eww” but now its “ahhhh”.  I need to throw another CS in there soon though or my LO’s will all start to blend together LOL. Speaking of LO’s. Here is  another one! I did this one just this morning for a new blog I found  (new to me at least) called Ad This! What makes them cool…

    Squeekin in!

    BUZZZZZZZ!  I just slid in right under the buzzer with my LO for the “Imagine Challenge” on CM. Or that’s what I’m calling it at least LOL!!! I think it had a nicer title. I started on it yesterday but didn’t have time to finish with children who think bedtime is the worlds worst punishment! I ended up snugglin dd and reading my book which in and of itself is wonderful but that LO was calling me! I was stumped on how to do the title anyway. I love how it turned out even though that was a TON of hand cutting. Its fun though! I need to get some…

    And goin to a crop this weekend!!! WOOT! All day Sunday I am going to sit and scrap! It sounds like a slice of heaven! Hopefully I feel better by ten 😛 I woke up with laryngitis this morning and I kinda feel a bit crappy. But just the idea of the Murder Mystery Dinner (my first!

I’m a fortune teller… kinda on the hippy side by my costume 😀 )on Sturday evening then staying at my friends’ house so we can crop Sunday makes me Excited! Just have to…

    phew! Finally moved!

    We are finally moved and just about unpacked. Well, the important stuff is unpacked 😀 I finally have my scrap stuff and bristol pads out where I can use them. I’m going from a dedicated space to an armoire. Its a big change in how I scrap and so far its just made me slower :p . Hopefully it will only be for the few months planned and then I can move back into a slightly larger space!!! I can put up pics later when the armoire is all done. I have a few more things to move in.  But anyway here is my first page since the move!!! I hope…

    Happy November!

    I’ve been SOOOOOO busy (kids being sick, hubby being stubborn work getting busier and busier, hanging out with friends when I can etc etc etc) but I’ve managed to keep plugging away. I’m trying to try new things with my LO’s. I 99% of the time start out with a plain cardstock BG but I tried pp with my latest BOM page. It made me nervous in the beinging (literally, I almost tore it back apart)BUT I REALLY wanted to use that paper (it was suppose to be for ds’s pages though :p) so I forged on and I really think as things like this go this is a break…

    New Book of Me LO

    This LO was especially hard because I don’t consider myself in anyway beautiful in the traditional sense and being nice to myself is hard. I think the LO turned out really well and the journaling, while taking forever to get going was therapeutic. I think I rambled more than a bit though. I’m going to have to get back into doing this more often. The green pp is basic grey sultry collection the black is the Paper Studio and the dandilion rub on in Me & My Big Ideas.
