I won a RAK!

I won a RAK over that the Cricut MB last week and recieved it today, It is an Obama journal, I'm pretty sure she used SCAL to cut it out, it's pretty neat! Thanks cardmkrLeslie!

Another Cousins LO

Here is another Cousins one, this is Devin and his cousin Brooke, they were born only 3 months apart, when I showed DH this one, he couldn't believe how much they really looked alike! I used Nana's kids for the bug paper and I had these little bug brads that I thought would be perfect! TFL!

Wednesday, January 28, 2009


Every year we get all the cousins together for a picture for the grand parents, I posted just the pictures earlier. Well, I finally got a chance to scrap my 5x7 after it sat in the diaper bag for some time and got a little water on it. opps! I used Storybook for the title and flourish. The kids are in order from oldest 13 to youngest 10 months. Thanks for looking!

Paper Give Away!

A poor worker at Paper Trunk was left behind while the others went to CHA! So she is being sneaky and doing a paper giveaway!! GO check it out! PAPER TRUNK PAPER GIVEAWAY!

Ribbon Storage

I got this idea from the ribbon rings or something like that, I made it out on DS and cut it out of chipboard, then bought the rings at my LSS. I have them hanging on 3M hooks I bought at Wal Mart and they are inside my cabnet. I like it, but it seems like it's a little hard to get just the one that I want, maybe it's just the way I designed it, I don't know, I'm not sure how long I'll keep it like this, but I'll give it a shot anyway.

Close up

And last, I bought these round cloths pins from M's and wraped my ribbon around them, I kinda like this idea better than hanging them, it just seems like it's easier to get to them and they travel better! But I ran out of them so I'll have to leave the hanging ones that way until I can get more. I still have lots of ribbon on spools too that I just have in a mini crate for now.

Decorating Cookies with Grandma!

This is my DS Devin, He's helping Grandma decorate her gingerbread men cookies, he had so much fun! Grandma took the pics and I was quite suprised on how well she did! LOL, she just got a new didgi camera, she used to use a film camera so she takes a lot more pics now so gets better shots which of course is a good thing! I got the sketch from my Idea deck. The paper is from a Christmas stack I have and the gingerbread men I believe are from SYI and decorated with stickles. Thanks for looking!

not sure about this one

Here is yet another one of okie's challenges! ha ha, I'm almost done, just in time for her to post another one! LOL I wasn't too sure about this one when I seen the sketch, but I think it turned out OK. I can't remember if the paper came from the DCVW fall stack or summer stack, but I'm guessing the Fall stack. I know it still needs something, but I got sick of looking at it so I put it away for now.

Pure Joy

Here is another one of Okie's challenges! I'm finally starting to get caught up, yay! This is my Devin, he was just a few months old here, I used my new Sesame Street font for the title. The embelishments are from Target, I found them in the card section and thought they were super cute! Thanks for looking!

Well, I had planned on getting some scrapping done this weekend with all my new things I bought last weekend, but that didn't happen. Thursday night, my oldest DS came in our bedroom at about 3am saying he had gotten sick all over his bed. I got him cleaned up and a bed made on the couch for the night, Friday he was just fine. About half way threw the day on Saturday my middle kid was taking a nap in our bed and DH went in to check on him and he had gotten sick in his sleep, all over our bed! He was sick for a few hours and right when he was finally done puking, DH and I started in taking turns in the bathroom. ICK! We had gotten all settled in on the couch and lazyboy and about 11:30 ish I woke up to DD crying, I went to check on her, and she had gotten sick! I got her cleaned up and settled back in the lazyboy with her, she woke up a few times getting sick, but by about 2am she was finally done. We were all pretty lazy this morning heasitant to eat anything, but now that evening came we all were able to eat supper and are feeling much better! I'm off work tomorrow so maybe I'll be able to get a few things done. I do have 1 LO to show, but too tired to get up and take pictures!

Boy oh boy did I spend a lot of money on scrapbooking stuff this weekend! I bought a new cabnet thing to hold it all, it's oak,$70. I went to my LSS $40, Micheals $60, J's online $37, e-bay 2 carts $85, sam's club $30, the tape depot $61. holy macro! I wanted to take a picture of a lot of it, but I had to get it put away before little fingers got a hold of it. I should be good for a while now though! I need to start saving for my trip to Archivers in April!

My blog candy

well, since no one was able to do the layout I had posted, I've decided I'm going to donate the goodies I had up to my son's school. I picked up a ton more stuff today to throw in the box too, but oh well. "sigh" Maybe I'll try blog candy again in a few weeks, maybe I won't.

No Scrapping today

Well, I didn't get any scrapping done today, I had to drive "home" for a funeral. One of my mom's best friends passed away on the 1st of January, they still don't know the cause. It was a very sad day today.

On another note, last night before I went to bed, I decided to check e-bay quick for the Sesame Street Font Cartridge and found one that was ending in 3 minutes going for only 46.00, so I checked out the seller quick and they had 100% feedback so I jumped on it. I put in a max bid of 49.00 and ended up winning it for 47.01 with free shipping! Then just about 5 minutes ago, I finally bit the bullet and buy an ATG!!!! YAHOO! I've been wanting one of these for so long! I went with the Tape depot one since it was cheaper and the reviews are good, and got 24 rolls of tape so I should be set for a while!

Tomorrow I'm planning on heading out to Sam's Club to see if they have anything new and interesting. I hope I find some good stuff!

Your Love is Priceless

I made this card for DH for Valentine's day. I used the Hearts cuddlebug embossing folder and embossed the heart cut out of George. the "your love is" is from opposites attract and "priceless" is from graphically speaking. It was also a challenge from the cuttlebug spot. You can read more about that HERE . Thanks for looking!

Word Book: BABY

One of my friends is having a baby boy so I decided I would finally give a word book a try. This is my first one, it took a little messing around with on DS, but I got it! I used a baby boy stack my mom had givin to me for the designed paper, I have no idea what the name of it is called though. I used Mickey Font for the letters. I don't have a BIA yet so I just used my CAD to punch holes and tied it all together with some baby boy ribbon. Now that I know how easy they are to make, I have a feeling I will be making many more! I will have to go buy some 12x24 mats so I can make bigger ones! Thanks for looking!

5 LO's done! Yay!

I got a full day of scrapping in yesterday and mannaged to finish uo 5 pages! Thats pretty good for me since I have 3 kids bugging me all day too! Comments always welcome!

Aqua Kid. My mom took Jade for a week over summer break and her friend has a pool that he lived in that week! these are just a few shots my mom took of him playing. I believe font is Plantin Schoolbook.

Shine. This is Alyssa just days before Christmas, we had these lights hanging over our doorway in the livingroom and she was always playing with them so I set up a little photo session of my own to get some cute shots of her. I used my new storybook cart and the MS glitter I found at WM for $2.20 a bottle! Its a mess, but it looks so nice! I also used Christmas Cheer for the light bulbs.

Sweet Girl. Here is my baby girl Alyssa playing in the laundry basket! She loves it in there! I got to use my new Graphically speaking cart on this one. I am going to love that cart, there is so much on it! The journaling says "Life isn't a matter of milestones, but of moments"

Goof balls. Jade had some goofy things in his goodie bags for his birthday so we decieded to have some fun with them!

Self Portrait. Sometimes I let Jade take my camera, well this day he took some pictures of himself! They are so cute, I just had to scrap them! I used Going Places for the camera and the "smile".
