Checking In...

Hey Ya'll....just wanted to stop by for a moment and drop off a layout I worked on the other night. I have also been working on some TOP SECRET projects that I can't mention just yet.....but I am itching to show you all the lovely goodies I have created. Hopefully February will get here soon enough.

On another subject, I dont' know about you but I feel like a "Peeping Tom" here lately. I am stalking all my fave manufuturer's sites to catch glimpes of the newest CHA yummy sweetness....all things paper and glue. I can't wait to get my hands on all of the latestest and greatest!!!!!

Well, before I go, I am thrilled to say that I finally got me some action snow shots while we were in Dallas. The snow was beautiful and snow much fun for all the kiddos....

 Here is me and my dear friend, Laura. I have missed her sooooo much and was extremely excited to visit with her and her family. I can't wait till we can go back again!
And finally, here is my layout I made of me and my boys!!!! I have hoarded this MME line for months now waiting for the right picture to use with it. I {heart} my boys so much and this is a rare occasion to get me in the picture with the two of them.
 Enjoy your extended weekend if you are off on Monday for MLK day! I know I will sleep in then grab a huge cup of joe and scrap the day away!!!!! Many hugs to all of you!!!!!!

A Redo & A Card Too

Have you ever worked on a project to later decide that it just needs something more????? Well, I decided to go back and tweak one of my layouts and add that little bit of umph needed to make me feel satisfied.

I think I like this much better...a little doodling and feaux stitching....Yeah, I am satisfied!

Here is a lovely card for my sweet... You think he will like it????? The design is based on a sketch I found on one of the blogs I follow. I looooooove the way it turned out!!!!

A Challenge

Well, a challenge to myself that is....I am trying to work on my card skills as well as stamping so I like to find a card sketch now and then to give me some inspiration. Here is a sketch from the Card Patterns blog.

 And here is my take on it.....

 I love Echo Park and I love this line....but I live in Texas....Houston, TX!!!!! We NEVER get snow. Booo Hooo...I would love to have snow but it is what it is. Anywho, I made a lo with these beautiful papers and was able to use it in a non snow kind-of way!!!

 So sad to see one of my fave Kit companies close but I finally got around to using one of their last kits. I love the combo of the Bella Blvd and Jillibean Soup...the coodinate perfectly!!!! I also played around with my new Stampin'UP Big Shot and embossed my clouds then I lightly sanded of the raised impression to add more texture. It's simple, but I love the way it turned out!

Hope you have a fabulous day!!!!!!

It's a New Day

I don't know about you but scrapbooking is definitely my choice of therapy. Whenever I am stressed or down, all I have to do is sit at my table and look at all my yummy scrap goodies and I am giddy. I have a new lo I worked on the other night that I thought I would share. But stay tuned....there's more.

Look at these Sweet lines by Best Creations. These will be introduced at the upcoming CHA. I can't wait to get my hands on all these fabulous papers and embellishments!!!!! 

Now, this is the second time I have posted one of  Nikki's new badges. Her upcoming lines are precious and I want to win one of them. Hey Nikki.....Pick me Pick me!!!!!!!

I hope all of you have a fab-scrappy day!!!!! It's a little dreary over here in the suburbs of Houston so it is back to the scrap table for me.

Hugs xoxoxoxo

This is where I've been...

For the month of December I had a lot going on. My daughter was picked this summer to audition for many industry pros in Orlando. My mom and I thought this would be a great oppurtunity for us to make this a memorable all girl trip to Disneyland!!!!! Needless to say it was a vacation that will never be forgotten. As for Abigail's auditions....she was selected by two agents who are ready and willing to work with her in the model/talent industry once we are able to make a trip to NY!!!!!! I can assure you I am looking at our options as we speak!!!!! Here are a few magical moments from our trip....
