Croppin' all weekend!! AND More JC8 Delicious--ness!

I had a SUPER-DUPER FUN weekend!!!
My LSS had a crop this weekend that went Friday and Saturday night and OMWord!! I had a BALL!

I was SO excited to be there Friday night and chatted with SO many girls that my throat was sore from all the talking I did. (If you were there, you can stop laughing now! ;) )I made good use of the provided snacks and the store that as packed up and relocated there briefly and actually got TWO LOs done the next day!!!! LOL. WHY do I bother bringing supplies!!??

OK.. I think I love this kit SO much I could almost eat it!
(YES!! I am enjoying it THAT much!)

If you love color, then you will LOVE this kit!! And BTW.. if you haven't played with JBS paper yet, you MUST!!
Here are a few more LOs that I got finished with this kit. TFL!!


'Bowl Fan'

Is this done?? I am undecided. I used scraps from my [url=] May creative Pack [/url] to do this LO (which is my second attempt with these pics, btw..) and I feel like it needs something else-but I am not sure.

This is a card I did with my scraps as well (I mean I SERIOUSLY LOVE this kit!).
I made the die cut-looking paper by tracing the BoBunny clear frames that came with it and then cutting/stitching them.


Love Struck

THIS is a pic of my Lil Sis & her cutie patootie BF at their winter formal.
All items from the may 09 CP EXCEPT:
Dots all Around Template (store)
JB sticker & Rubon from March 09 SP
Chipboard Heart from April 09 SP

I used the VersaMark pen and the Dots All Around Template and just filled in the dots for an easy watermark effect.

I used the Versamark pen again on the chipboard heart and freehand drew some designs.
I then used the Zing from the CP Kit and embossed it.

Thanks for POPPING BY!! Have a GREAT WEEK!!

All Grunged up (new LO)

I scrapped with 'The Girls' last Friday night (which just ends up usually as ALOT of girl talk for MOI). I NEVER finish a LO in one sitting with 'The Girls' so I finished this one up yesterday. It is VERY grungy for me (Cardboard, masking tape, black paint & staples) , but I felt like stepping out of my 'scrappy box' and doing something a bit different. Not sure how I am feeling about it. I think I have a love/hate relationship with it. ;)

Thanks for the purple button, T! tee hee

This LO is about Little Man's TOTAL ADORATION for Birthday cake and ALL things cake related.

Happy Easter Everyone!!

SO... You know how DH bought me the most FABULOUS camera for C-mas... I couldn't really figure out WHAT I was doing with it, then the memory card died.. I got frustrated and put it away. DH got me a NEW memory card but I was still putting it off. Jessi's new photography challenge at got me inspired to try again (Thanks, Jessi!!!) So... This is what I photographed this AM. I LOVE it! (I am sure technically there is ALOT that could be better about it, but I am happy for my first try!) Thanks for letting me share! (off to find something red now for the challenge now)

Happy Easter! Don't eat TOO much Chocolate!!

Seriously?? Where does the time go??

I always thought my days would be SO LONG and boring as a SAHM. TOTALLY NOT TRUE!! My days/weeks sprout wings and FLY by!! SInce I last posted, there has been a mixer AND I got some GCD news! (Oh and KUTNER from House died-WTH??!!)

First off, Mixer number 13!
The challenge was to use a Dr Seuss book for inspiration and a DR. Seuss quote on your page.
This quote TOTALLY fit my LO of my adorable little nephew READING (I still can't believe he is READING!!)
I used K& Co papers
Pink Paislee scallop paper Trims
Prima Flowers
Rose MOka alphas
Making Memories word strips.
Owl Stamp- Colorbok (Stazon)
Make sure to check MIX it UP! tonight for Challenge 14!!
There is a FABULOUS new prize kit donated from CMK for this round of challenges (CMK kits are DROOL-WORTHY!!! & JAM-PACKED full of scrappy-goodness!
SO I applied for The GCD Design Team and didn't make it BUT I made a spot in their group of 21 testers! And will be receiving product from them to design with! Holy HANNAH! I was FLOORED and THRILLED to see my name on the list!
You can check out the New DT and the announcements on their blog here: .
OK my TWO favorite shows are HOUSE & LOST.
I watched House Monday night and 'OMG! They killed Kutner!!!' (said in my best South Park STan voice) I EQUALLY Loved/Hated the way they did it. It sucked that they just THREW it out there without warning (fans are in an uproar) BUT BUT BUT THIS really IS the reason I LOVE this show so much! They are CONSTANTLY surprising me with their dry-wit, interesting characters and the cast is STELLAR. SO while I think it is rotten to throw it all out there-BOOM! with no warning, I applaud the writers and cast for a flawlessly executed exit of a very beloved character (and for simutaneously SHOCKING the pants off me.)
RIP, Kutner. Congrats on your new job in the West Wing, Kal Penn :)
