Good Thursday morning to you!!

I will start by saying I have the rudest upline ever! OK I don't really mean that but every year SU hosts a convention which is taking place RIGHT NOW in Utah. Heather is there NOW! Basically it's to ring in the new catalogue as well as goodies, ideas etc!!! SO, Heather has emailed her downline FROM CONVENTION talking about all that she is seeing while she is there INCLUDING sharing tidbits from the new catty! AHHHHHHH!!! The suspense is killing me. I am so excited for that new catty! I am hoping to receive it Mon or Tues. YIPPEE. Remember if you are in any of my clubs you will get one FREE!!!! YEAH!

Last night I had my Scrappers 8 girls over and oh so much fun! We always get some good laughs at what's going on in the lives of others. Just fun to vent and share!

OK onto the creation.......this was a project we made for my Stampers 10 club this month. A cute pocket card!!! I love these things. I hope you enjoy it too. Not sure if you can see but I used Crystal Effects on the small flower in the FRIENDS set. I haven't used CE in ages!! I will more for sure now!!

Enjoy and have a great day!!!

Christmas In July!!


I love Wenesdays because I have my baby group on Wednesdays. Always nice to get together with other moms to hang out and chit chat! Lord knows we do enough of that LOL!!!

Well I decided to partake in a challenge put on by the OCC girls. Visit their blog won't be disappointed. Anyhow, this week's challenge was Christmas in July. So all it had to be was a Christmas card. LOVE IT!!! I always make about 40 Christmas cards each year so this gave me a bit of a head start. Only 39 to go!!! It also made me realize my Christmas stamp supply is lacking big time so I can't wait to see what festive ones come out in the new SU catalogue!! I'M PUMPED!!! I smell PURCHASE!!!

Well I hope you like it and I hope you are having a fantastic day!!!

Hi all and happy Sunday.

Well, I have finally scrapped my ultrasound pictures of when I was preggers with Berlynn. So this day 1 year ago I had my last ultrasound. So weird how exactly a year later I A) know that she is a girl and B) she is already almost 7 months old!! WOW....what can happen in a year is truely amazing!!

So because I am anal and the pictures have to match my paper, seeing as ultrasound pictures are black and white I of course had to use black as my base. OBVIOUSLY! And seeing as Berlynn is a girl, I had to use pink as my accent. I hope you like it and I am glad to have it finally complete. Now the pictures are off my fridge so I can actually put some real LIVE photos of her up.

Thanks for lookin today and enjoy your weekend!!

Box Of Thank Yous.

Happy Hump Day all!!!

Well we are mid week already. I can hardly believe that my mat leave is over half way done. BOO!!! Don't women in Germany get 3 years of mat leave when they have a baby? Is that true or rumor??? If it's true WISH I WAS THERE!!

OK on to the goods! My mom hosted our family reunion on Saturday (which we have every year so I think it should be called "Annual Family Gathering" or something to that effect). I wanted to get my mom a hostess gift because I know how hard it is to entertain so many people (inside because it ended up raining). So I remembered I had made this cute little box (thanks to Heather upline). You can purchase this class planner from her if you are interested in making it. Go on over to her BLOG and have a boo!

I chose to use the Summer Picnic paper as well as the Tart and Tangy stamp set. I thought it was fitting to give my mom. Now she has 5 thank you cards handy in case she needs to send one in a jiffy! I just adore this little box set and will recreate it again for sure!! Hope you like it!!

Take care and thanks so much for checkin' in!!

Beauty Queens!!!


This layout was done again in my upline Heather's scrappin class. I decided to scrap my daughter and I with rollers in our hair. I was getting ready to go out that night and she asked for some in her hair too...just like mommy. How could I not??? So there it is....Beauty Queens. Sorry my flash makes it bright but when I took it without the flash I didn't like the way it looked. I'll figure out the camera thing one day :)

Hey ladies,

Well what can I say....I am addicted to scrapbooking and I am delighted that I am getting a good chunk done on my girl's books!! I used to be soooooo into making cards (still am) but I must say that scrapbooking has taken a bit of a front seat. SO FUN and rewarding at the same time. I hope my girls appreciate it in years to come....they better!!! HA HA!!!

These pages were done again at my upline Heather's I LOVE THIS LAYOUT and I can say that because I didn't come up with it.....she did!!
So this was the first time my daughter had her fingers and toes painted. She thought it was pretty cool and I'm a girly girl so I had fun doing it for her!! Now when ever I do mine I make sure she's done up too!!! SO FUN!
I hope you like it!!

PAPER: Certainly Celery, Bashful Blue (DS paper too), PURPLE (no clue which one, sorry)

Hi all and HAPPY FRIDAY.
So where did the week go? I am just back from a fab trip in Jacksonville visiting my friend!! I went with 2 other girls (no kids) and man what a change. No diapers to change, no singing toddler was quiet by the pool and I slept in!!! WONDERFUL! Now would I change my life for that.....NO WAY!!! Missed my kids (and hubby) to BITS so I am glad to be home and back into routine.

This little post is a 2-4-6-8 box that we made at my stampers 10 club. Super easy!! Found just by googeling "2,4,6,8 box." I can't remember whose I used but it was super easy to follow. Can't go wrong with this one. Hope you like it.

So did I mention that my 10, 10, 25 class ran a bit longer than I thought it would? Too much chitter chatter not enough work. Next time I will crack the whip on my ladies!! HA HA, just kidding. It was fun catching up with them!!!
This was one of the cards we made that night too!! LOVE BLUE AND BROWN TOGETHER!!! Love brown period actually. I didn't put a sentiment on this one so they can use it for any occasion. Just handy to have in a pinch.
Hope you like it!!! Didn't realize it's kinda crooked. OOPS!

Do you ever make a card and think "HO HUM??" That's what I thought with this card. It's kind of plain yet colourful. It was a card we did in my 10, 10,25 class and the girls really liked it. I originally thought "HO HUM" but they changed my opinion on it and I am liking it more and more. It's a super easy card. You just need a few circle punches and away you go!! EASY PEASY is my favourite saying these days.
I love these colours together. Cheery! ENJOY!!

PAPER: Pumpkin Pie, Whisper White, Real Red, Bashful Blue, Summer Picnic DS Paper
