My Scrappy Friends Mini Album

I've been wanting to make this little mini album for a long time. I bought this cute little TLC album from my friend Izzy way back when she was with TLC. Yesterday I finally finished it. I love how it turned out. Just wish it had more pages to include more of my scrappy friends! What do ya think?
Thanks for stopping by :)

More Delish Girls Paperie to share!

This is definitely one of my all time favourite lines! I just love these soft, romantic, colours! It's so much fun to play with. I've only got a little bit of this beautiful paper left but am super thrilled that there's more romantic Girls Paperie coming from CHA! I'll definitely be using up every little bit of my scraps to make some beautiful cards with what I have left. I also love love love these Kaisercraft bird cages! My second layout is based on another fabulous sketch from Creativ Scrappers. Thanks for stopping by :)

Dear Lizzy Layout to Share

Here's my layout I shared on Tiny Seed last week. I wanted to play around making my own flowers and had fun. I used the American Crafts Dear Lizzy collection for this layout. I'm off to play as I need to come up with a few ideas before I can share some exciting news with you all! Stay tuned :o) Thanks for stopping by!

The Little Things

Do you ever find yourself getting excited about the little things in life? Well, the other day when my friend Rosa posted on her blog about the uber cool Smash Journal coming out in April I found myself getting so excited about the idea of creating such a journal for myself that I had to start right away! It was just the inspiration I needed to get crafty again. I have on so many occasions saved a little snippit of something I liked or found pretty or inspirational and stuffed it somewhere never to be found again. The thought of having all my yummy eye candy in one place totally rocks my socks! I can't wait till April so when Emily went up to Chapters that day after school I asked her to pick me out a journal after I showed her the video. She picked out the perfect recycled one for me! Here's what I've managed to get started so far. So for now, until the real Smash journal hits the shelves, I'll be using this one. Check out the video to see what it's all about.

School Album using October Afternoon

Here's an album I created a while ago. I couldn't believe I had every single class photo! Some girlfriends and I are trying to arrange a reunion this summer and so it prompted me to take some photos of this album to share with my friends on FB. Some of us haven't seen each other for over 35 years! It will be such a hoot to see everyone again. We're having tons of laughs taking a trip down memory lane. Welcome to my blog Devorah, Lisa, Kristen and Leanne!

Where Have I Been???

Wow!! I just realized it's been a whole month since I've made a post! Well, to be honest, some nasty little gremlin stole my mojo and I have been really struggling trying to get inspired to actually sit down and scrap. Not that there isn't oodles of inspiration out there, there is!

One of the reasons I haven't been blogging or been on the computer much at all these days is because my super generous dad gave us a beautiful new HD TV and PVR for Christmas and I have totally re-discovered TV all over again! lol I rarely watched TV before. I much preferred spending time on the computer blog hopping but recently that has taken a back seat to TV. I LOVE my PVR! I know, I know, I've finally gotten with the program but seriously, I just love being able to watch what I want to watch when I want to watch it. I'm totally addicted to Dragons Den, Dead Like Me, Criminal Minds and a few others.

I really need to catch up on my blogging! Forgive me if I haven't been by for a visit in a while. I miss seeing what you all have been up to. Now, on top of those excuses, my back went out on me last weekend and until late tonight, I haven't been able to sit upright for days! Thank God for my iPhone though as it kept me entertained while I laid flat out on the floor for the past several days. I think I only played Bejewelled a 1000 times. I also caved and downloaded NetFlix and watched a few shows on my mini little iPhone screen lol. Totally cool I have to admit. Love that you can download unlimited shows to several devices for only $8 a month!

I'm hoping that as soon as I'm feeling better my mojo will have returned and I will find some time to scrap. I miss it! Hmmmm....maybe I'll download something from NetFlix onto my laptop and be able to scrap in my scraproom while I watch a movie! Ohhhh, the possibilities! For now, here's a layout I posted on Tiny Seed last week for my Kathy Thursday post using the gorgeous My Minds Eye Lost and Found Collection. Be sure to check out Yolanda's Shoppe as she's bringing in some really great products! Thanks for stopping by!
