Sale at Scrapbook Pictures!

WooHoo!!! Time to stock up on pictures again! Its a good thing too, because I am going to a crop this Saturday, another one next Friday, and have a loooong girls weekend planned after that! Yeah! I am counting down the days, girls ;o) I ordered pics and got about 15 page kits made up just a couple of weeks ago, but I think I just might need more to last me through March!? Needless to say, my computer is a busy bee uploading pics to order! Have a great week!

Bringin' Eyelets Back!

Okay, I recently renewed my love affair with eyelets! You know the song "Bringin Sexy Back".. well, I am single-handedly bringing eyelets back! :o) Mostly because I needed a brad in a certain color and didn't have one, then stumbled upon my old stash of eyelets (hundreds or thousands of them!) and in the color I needed! Yeah! Of course, now I have that song stuck in my head... at least it is upbeat so I am all peppy!

I also wanted to say thanks to my new friend, for putting up with my drama queen daughter. We met on Tally Moms and got together today with our girls, had a fabulous time scrapping, and can't wait till next time!

Tour of Tallahassee

So, this is my first attempt at a layout using a kit! Yes, I know, not usually my thing... but, I have been cropping with a friend that uses these kits and I have been secretly drooling over them! So, I finally just decided to go for it and ordered the October and November kit from Kraft Girl Kits, since they are both on sale and I already had pics in mind for both kits. This one turned out exactly like I had wished! I even used the orange bling, rub-ons, thickers, buttons, and dmc floss that came in the kit! Yes, orange, but it really did add a nice touch! I am really liking breaking out of my comfort zone! In fact, the only thing on the layout that is not from the kit is the CTMH Textured Colonial White CS that I used as the backing, the CTMH black ink that I used to distress everthing, and the QK Metro Skinni Mini for the first part of the title. Overall, I am one happy scrapper!

Easter Cutie

This is the other layout that I finished on Friday night, I just had a to get the 5x7's printed before I could post them... really simple, but I love the way it turned out with all the inking and clean lines.

Strike a Pose

I got to go to a crop last night and had a great time! I was even able to get 2 layouts done, which is impressive for me, especially considering all the socializing I did with all my new scrappin buddies :o) Can't wait till the next one! If you are in the Tallahassee area and looking for scrapbooking events, I have added a new column over on the side to include a list of upcoming crops. You can email me directly if you have any questions or need more information.

This layout uses one my all time favorite Close To My Heart kits... including the Stickease!, some CTMH dimensional elements flowers and letters, a little inking, a few buttons, and some.... Heidi Swapp Bling! OMG, I finally used it! I have had that little package of sparkly goodness in my stash for ages and finally just got over my need to hoard it for that perfect page :o) I think using it is what makes it that page!

The Big 30!

Dear Hubby,
Just wanted to publicly announce that you are getting old... the big 30! Of course, I can only rub it in for 13 more months before I am no longer a twenty-something :o) You know I love you and cannot imagine life without you! I will save all my readers the gushy stuff (besides I wrote most of it in your card) just wanted to say Happy Birthday my dear! I love you!

Pumpkin Guts

I had a lot of fun with the layout! I painted all my chipboard elements, Quickutz'd, ribbon'd and button'd up a storm :o) and its hard to tell, but the little spiders have glittery legs, too cute! Here are a couple close-ups so you get the idea of just how much fun I had... I couldn't even wait for the paint to dry before I photo'd it! Please pardon all the awful grammar, but whateva!

I am hunting for a sitter for Friday night because I just found out about a new crop this weekend at the local high school, it is put on by the PTA. Llooks like it will be fun, hopefully I will be there to find out! I hope my little scrapping streak continues so I can do some more of this...

Happy Scrapping! I am off to try and sneak in some more before bed, at least pick out a sketch or two ;o)

Easter Saturday 2007

So, I actually was able to get one more layout done last night before hubby got home! I just got the journaling finished up and loaded the pics :o) It turned out so much better than I was expecting! I added buttons overlapping the centers of the flowers on the pp, and they have waxy flax tied through them, it gives the layout alot of dimension and umph! Thanks to Granny and her Accucut, I had some cool chipboard flourishes and photo corners that I painted to match.

On a roll again... finally!

So, I just got a ton of pics printed last week and spent part of friday night making up kits with pics and paper... all ready to scrap! I got the "Mrs. Bear" layout done first thing on Friday night, only took me 1.5 hrs (which is nearly a record for me!) Also exciting is that I used up some random ribbon and papers that I got long ago and didn't have a purpose for, luckily for me this worked out great! The "Unique" layout took a bit more out of me, I got it all cut out and pics stuck down but got stuck on the embellies... I was scraplifting this from a blog I follow, scrapliftable.blogspot. I woke up Saturday with a new set of eyes and got it finished up in no time! The "Silly, Sassy, Super Sweet Faces of Hailey" was an old layout that I was finally able to get pictures on! Yeah me! All-in-all a great weekend in scrappyland :o) Hubby still isn't home yet, so I am gonna try to squeeze out one more layout! Wish me luck! It is so nice to be in a scrappin' groove again!
