And the bogging continues...

Hello all! Today was a very good day! One of my fave stamping/scrapping places had their anniversary sale, so I HAD to go and check it out!! Needless to say, I indulged! I walked away with some awesome deals, and didn't break the bank too much! I added 2 sets of nesties, 3 Nellie stamps, 3 Maya chipboard albums and a whopping 7 new bellas!!! That along with some other odds and ends and I am a very a happy girl!!! If anyone is in the area, it is totally worth checking out the deals at the Paper Pickle in Chatham. It is always a worthwhile visit, now the prices are crazy good!

Here is another layout I finished this weekend. It is based on a sketch from CK's Feb issue. Some yummy Cosmo Cricket paper and some cute pics of my family! (if I do say so myself)

Have a great night everyone!

This may be a record...

... 2 posts in as many days!!! Another layout from the online crop over at the Scrapping Turtle! The layout is based on a pagemaps sketch.

Hope it was a great Monday for all!

Lazy Sunday

Hello! I have realized that I am never going to be a "regular" blogger- no discipline! I figured that I will just pop in from time to time, no guilt, no expectaions. Yeah, that should work.

My little man is off at Grandma and Grandpa's this weekend ( thank you Mom and Dad) and I have been taking advantage of the quiet time to play along with a sketches based online crop at The Scrapping Turtle!

Here is one of my layouts:

This layout is based on a sketch my our own Marissa- beautiful stuff lady!
Hope you all have a great day!!!

Happy Saturday!

Good Morning! I hope you are having a great day! We are off to search for a new couch today, wish us luck!

Here is a layout that I completed last week. It is based on a pagemaps sketch ( love those sketches) and I am very pleased with the result! It didn't photograph well, but I figured I would post anyway:

Have a great day everyone!

I love Tuesday!

Why do I love Tuesday, because my boys go off to work and school and I get to stay home...alone...and I can do whatever I want!!!! Today, I want to do nothing! I think I am just in recovery mode from Christmas! I hope to get some scrapping done today, and that is about it!

The one thing I am not loving today is the challenges I have with taking photos of my layouts! I have whipped up 3 new layouts so far this year, but I can't seem to get a decent photo of them! GRRRRRR!!! Clearly something I need to work on for 2010. Dispite the poor photograph, I am going to show you a layout featuring my word for this year.

I used a sketch by Julie Bonner ( love her sketches), pp is BG Eskimo kisses

Enjoy your Tuesday!

Yes, I am still here..

...just really busy ( I know like everyone else, right?) I have allowed myself to get to busy living life and I haven't blogged about it!!! Things are great, we had a wonderful Christmas holiday and now I am getting ready to go back to work tomorrow! I figured a good way to get back to blogging is to post my 10 fav lo's from last year. I didn't get as much scrapping done as I had hoped ( by a lot!!!) but I am particularly happy with these projects! With no further ado...

The "spring flowers" lo was my first digi ( it is my only so far) so I had to include it!

I have completed 3 lo's so far this year ( yeah!) I need to journal, photograph and hopefully post soon!
Happy Sunday and for all returning to work/ school have a great Monday!!!

Happy Saturday everyone!!! It looks like it is going to be a beautiful day around here!! Today is my first day of vacation (YEAH!!!) and I think my Aunt, Uncle and I are taking my little man to Greenfield Village in Dearborn Michigan for the day! We went for the first time about a month ago, and we liked it soo much we got a season's pass (thanks mom!). Looking forward to a fun day trip!
