Goodbye 2009

I hope this day finds you full of joy, health, prosperity and everything that is good and of God. As I look back on the year I wonder what I could have changed to make it better than it was, but the past is the past. Therefore I'm looking to the future 2010 the beginning of a new decade.... Have a Happy New Year and be safe....

It's worst than I thought!

I'm a horrible blogger!!! I can't believe I haven't posted since September!!! That makes me crazy when people don't update their blogs, and I'm the worlds worst. I'm going to make a New Years Resolution to post weekly, we will see what happens. I haven't done a lot worth talking about lately, so I will just post the picture of my kids that will be going into our Christmas Cards this year... Have a great Holiday Season....

School Is Back In Session!!!

and It has taken over my life... I'm so thankful to have a job, but summer just went by a little too fast for me, which is the excuse I'm using for being a horrible blogger... I haven't even scrapbooked that much lately, but I do have one to share of my good friends daughter on her first day back at preschool.... Have a great day!!!

Hello Monday!

I really should be a better blogger... I've just been so busy scrapbooking that I haven't made the time... I'm trying out for a design team so that has kept me pretty busy... I just received the call yesterday that my son is moving back home, so now I have to figure out what to do with everything in his room before he arrives...(wish me luck) He's only been gone a year and a half how did I accumulate so much??? I know I will figure out something... Have a great day....

I did this layout based on a sketch over at 2 Peas...

Accordian Flower Tutorial

1. Start with a 1x12 strip of paper, stapler, button.
2. Make an accordian fold going back and forth with the whole strip of paper.
3. Stick the ends together and staple them.
4. Lay it flat, it will look like a star.
5. Take the edges and push them all toward the center of the shape.
6. Top it with a matching button, using a pop dot, and put a pop dot on the bottom to adhere it to a card or layout.
You can see the layout in my prior post to see how I used one of these flowers.

Scrap Mojo Challenge!

The challenge this time around is to scrap using the words I'm a little bit____ and a little bit____. This comes from a song by Donny and Marie, and the other part was to also use dots on the page... So my title says I'm a little bit happy and sad, and I have hidden journaling in the file folder...

We were suppose to get Jordie's senior pics taken last week, but we were rained out... So today is the day and I'm trying to get Jordie motivated to get ready so we can go and it is an act of congress to get her moving!!! My patience is wearing thin... I hate being late!!!

This is the story of our summer, she works everyday except Sunday, I start waking her up 2 hours before time to go, it takes me 30 minutes to get her up and she leaves the house at the same time she is suppose to be there, so by the time she drives there I figure she is 10 minutes late everyday!!!

Calgon take me away.....

Free to be me

is the song of choice for Scrapping the Music this week... There were so many good lines in this song, but since I had pictures from my daughters wrecked car, I thought this was the perfect line to use with those pics... I took a picture without my flash and with my flash so that you could see more of the details in my layouts... Thanks for looking....

It is Summer!!!

I can't believe I'm off work until August. YIPPEE!!! It is time to get busy doing all of the fun things of summer... Cleaning, watering, weeding, mowing, washing cars, I thought this was a break! Actually these are all things that I love to do... Today I have already washed curtains, and sheets flipped the mattress, vaccumed and did the dishes, so now I'm calling it good and I'm off to scrapbook, but not before I share this layout of my precious daughter sharing a snowcone with her boyfriends pooch.... Have a great day....

Bind it all challenge!

The challenge to make a spring project using your bind it all... I used cardboard that I cut off an old box, I tore off some of the cardboard so that you can see the corugated goodness, and I then painted over it lightly.... These pics are from Easter 1992. The embellishment are MM whimsy, assorted ribbons, and of cousre my bind it all was used to bind the book... Enjoy

I'm a lousy blogger!!!

I didn't even post a Happy Easter message. Oh well! I've been so busy finishing up graduation announcements that I haven't done anything else... I did get them done though and I'm now working on an easter mini album with pictures from 1992 of my little sweeties, and I hope to post the finished product real soon... For now I leave you with a picture of my littlest sweetie in her easter outfit this year... (This is what happens when they start dressing themselves...)

Scrapping the music!

Here is my submission for this weeks contest at STM! The song this week was Everyday by The Dave Matthews Band... I based my submission on the title... My son took this pic from a parking garage in Austin... He gets to deal with this big city everyday, its his home...

Friday, April 3, 2009

Wow! It's April!

Can you believe how fast time is flying? I wish life would just slow down a wee bit... I've been scrapping a little bit so I will share a layout, because I don't really have anything else to talk about...

Scrapping the music

Since I'm off for spring break I've been looking for challenges, and although I knew about scrapping the music I have never participated in one of their challenges.... Today I took on the task though... The song this week was Taylor Swifts White Horses... I'm not a big country fan, so I had to look up the lyrics and they were perfect for my daughter... I'm no princess, this ain't a fairytale... I love it... Thanks for the challenge...

Spring Break!

I'm so glad it finally arrived... It is so nice to have the week off to do things you want to do... Of course I will be doing a wee bit of cleaning and a whole lot of scrapping... I'm in the process of finishing up some graduation cards... It was an order of 100, ugh... I honestly get bored with the same thing over and over, by the time you have done it 50 times you just don't want to do it anymore and you are only half way there, but I will finish today... I've also been scrapping some fun stuff too I will share it later... For now a St. Paddy's day pic of my girl... Have a great day!!!

Scrap Mojo Challenge!

I love this challenge!!! I also love my finished project, I think this may be one of my most favorite layouts ever... Why I don't know... I just like it... The challenge was to do a layout about what you would do if you ruled the world, and add stars so that's what I did... I had a blast thanks to the girls at Scrapmojo...

In Like a Lion!

That didn't hold true here in NM. March came in like normal... I hope everyone else had March come in peacefully in their neck of the woods as well... I just get to anticipate the March winds now... ugh!!! I don't have a layout to post, but I will return soon with something...

You've got Mail!!!

Who doesn't love the little mailboxes from the $ spot at Target??? I finally got my hands on some this year, woohoo!!! They are so cute, but when you add some love to them they are even better... I decorated mine and took it to school for the kids to put my valentines in... They thought it was great, and so did I.... I bought 2 more, but I'm saving them for a rainy day....

Scrap Mojo Challenge!

Has another challenge up... I love these challenges. This time the challenge was to scrap your super hero name, and tear something... How fun is that... I am a helicopter mom no doubt, my children need something or they get in trouble, I swoop in and rescue them... I can't help myself, and they know I will do it... So naturally that would be my super hero name....

Friday, January 23, 2009

I'm a bad blogger!!!

I have actually been doing a lot of scrapping though... It's my goal to do something creative everyday, and so far I have... I'm my happiest when I'm creating, so that is what I'm going to do... I challenge each of you to do what makes you the happiest, whether it's scrapping, or exercising, reading... Just do it!!! Take time for you... You deserve it...

Happy New Year!!!

It's late, but it is the thought that counts... I trust that everyone enjoyed an awesome holiday with friends and family. I hope that you received everything you wanted from the big guy, and now your spending your time trying to get back into the groove of normal everyday life... I've set some goals for myself in 09 and I'm hoping that I accomplish all that my heart desires. My hope is to make this the best year yet... The first thing I'm going to do is choose happiness, because really it is a choice, and who doesn't want to be happy??? So of course I wish the same thing for each of you... A Happy 2009!!! These two make me real happy... I love them so much...
