365 Projects In 365 Days

2010 is going to be the year I get my scrap on!!!!!

I spend more time shopping for scrappy stuff then I do using it ..
I spend more time looking at others peoples projects then my own ..
I spend more time thinking about scrapbooking then actually doing ..

I'm going to join Christine and do 365 projects in 365 days.

Feel free to join in the fun ladies!!!

Wall Flowers

So, I saw these wall flowers a few months ago while out shopping with my sister. I so LOVED them and wanted them right then and there, but with some self control I resisted, but not until I showed them to my sister .. and told her oooohhhh so badly how much I wanted them .. hint hint (Christmas prezzie) lol Guess what I got for Christmas .. YAY!!!!

Today I got them up on the wall. This wall (yes, bad paint job - lol) is the wall you see when you come into my condo. I meant to put up a one of those Word To The Wall things my mom bought me and then put the flowers around it .. oops .. I will have to find another place for that one.

Retirement Album

So, I am doing up a retirement album for a lady I work with. She has worked at the same job for 40 years :-) I cant even imagine working at the same job for 40 years.

I wanted to do something nice for her. She is an awesome lady.

Here is the start of her album .. the first 2 pages so far. I am keeping it very simple.

She retires at the end of December and I hope to get this done ASAP. We are having a little retiremnet coffee/cake thing for her on Tuesday where I will get soem more cards filled out by people who were missed.

Then there is a group of us going out to dinner on Thursday night so I am hoping to have it done by them .. fingers crossed!!!

TFL and there will be more to come :-)

Here is the card I did for Gloria's December Card Challenge.

Here is the sketch and my card :-)

Thx for another great challenge Gloria!!

TFL :-)

No use crying over spilled ...


During our last on-line crop I organized my bling by color and then today, with one small brush of my leg against the box .. it tipped over (insert rolling eyes here).

It was nice to have it done by color .. blah .. now I gotta organize it again.

What a "Goofball"

Justin came down from his shower last night and asked me why he could get the towel wrapped around his hair the way I do mine??? I turned around and nearly died from laughing so flippin' hard!!!!!

Here are the before and after pics - LMAO!!!!

Gotta say .. he is keeping me entertained this week :-)

All I Want 4 Christmas

All I Want 4 Christmas .. is SOCKS????????

You would think so by the looks of this! I came home from work 2 nights ago and this is what I saw. I asked him why he was wearing those .. to put them in the garbage. He claims these are the only pair of "clean" socks he has and that he was in a rush for school. He then told me that he had yoga during fitness class today and had to take his shoes off - LMAO!!!!!!! Remember your mom always telling you to wear clean underwear "just in case" ... well maybe I will have to remind him to wear socks without huge ass holes in them. He has about 30 pairs of socks so there really should be no excuses. He did end up doing his laundry that night .. guess he didn't want a repeat - lol

I HATE feet and can't believe I'm even posting this ..

"Cold Snowy Winter Days" Recipe Swap

I'm hosting a "Cold Snowy Winter Days" recipe swap.

I was feeling uninspired this weekend trying to get these recipe cards done by Dec 1st. I was at Micheal's today and saw these snowmen recipe cards and thought, this is it .. I love them. My printing is pretty neat so I thought I would tackle it. Let me tell you .. it is easier to type it on the computer and print it onto cardstock. There were 20 cards in the package, I had to make 11 recipe cards .. there is only 1 blank card left - lol Man, spelling mistakes left right and center today (insert rolling eyes here) Here is my recipe card.

The Re-Do

lol ... here is the re-do ..

thx 4 looking :-)

"About Me" Swap

Robin is hosting an "About Me" swap. A swap to share some info about yourself with your fellow scrappers.

I so cant wait to get this swap back and learn a little more about my on-line scrappy friends.

I kept mine pretty simple (of course) .. I used this fantastic glitter paper I received from V :-) I stamped and embossed swirls on the side ... added some bling. I used some rock candy on the flower .. thx for the tip Dolly ;-)

Thanks for taking the time to check my blog out ladies :-)

Thanks to Robin for a great swap idea :-)

The pic of the inside with my info is missing the swirls I stamped .. the pic I took before I mailed them apparently didn't work out so I used a pic I took previously to adding the swirls ...

Christmas Card

Saw a card similar to this on Splitcoast .. I like the concept of the card but I think I will re-do it and stamp the Season's Greeting and place it in the lower left somewhere .. I think it does not pop in this card .. off to re-do .. thx for looking though - lol

Gloria's Card Challenge for Nov 15, 2009

Trish .. V .. there is that TA "Snow Angel" Glimmer Mist again ... love that one!!!

TFL :-)

thx for the challenge Gloria :-)

Trish's "NON Traditional Christmas Card Challenge"

Here is the card I made for Trish's "NON Traditional Christmas Card Challenge".

We were to think outside the colors of red, green, white, and blue, however, they could be used as an accent color.

Now, I can here Trish laughing her ass off at me already. She knows I dont like change. LOL. This was the best I could do.

TFL and thx for the challenge Trish :-)

BTW Trish .. I used the "snow angel" glimmer mist .. see .. you want it now dontcha????? LOL

Tam's "Something Old, Something New, no Something Old Challenge"

Here is a card I did for Tam's "Something Old, Something New, no Something Old Challenge" this w/e.

The challenge was to create a layout or card using some paper that you've had in your stash at least 3 months or longer and you've not used yet...

I have a few "boy" cards to make this w/e so I thought this paper would be perfect for it.

TFL and thx for the challenge Tam :-)

Here is the card I made for Gloria's card challenge.

Gloria's Card Challenge for Oct 1/09

Here is my card for Gloria's card challenge :-)

Once again, you cant tell by the pic but the pink is glimmer misted .. I wonder what I am doing wrong for it not to show in my pics???


Ok, I had to take the pic again, this time inside instead of outside, you can see the glimmer now (the one with the black background)

Gloria's Christmas Cooksheet Calendar Swap

I have #12 & #24 for Gloria's swap.

I originally did the Santa hats for the 24th and the chimney ones for #12. Trish pointed out that the chimney one would make more sense for the 24th due to the fact that santa is going down the chimney and well that is what happens on the December 24th .. lol.

I ended up redoing the 24th so that the chimney ones were for the 24th. However considering I already did all the santa hat ones I decided to include them with the swap. So everyone is getting 2 #24's 'cause I just couldn't throw them out.

Anyhoo .. I hope everyone likes them :-)

Bday Card

A lady at work liked the card I made for Rob's bday .. she asked if I would make one for her daughters 15th bday.

I added some glimmer mist. Her daughter loves black and pink. I want to add a necklace on the inside .. something with a heart or a V (her name is Victoria) what I have here is silver and is not looking good so I will look around tomorrow to see if I can find something that will work.
