Good morning! It's finally the weekend; I thought the work week would never end! I do luv my job and everyone I work with, but I just wanted to be at home! I was sick of workn'! :)

But, yesterday on my lunch I created this LO. (The best way to spend my lunch hour, is scrapn'!) I figured I best get back at my vacation pics, since those are the pics I decided to do digitally. Although, some how I always end up getting myself off track. I'm sure it's because I take pics that I just can't resist doing digitally... Anyhow, this my new LO! And I luv how it turned out~

Well, I have some cleaning to do this morning, so off I go for now! :)

Oh, heck!!! It' been one too many days since I blog!!! :0 But, life has me pretty darn busy... Although, in between family and work, I have squeezed in some digi scrapn' and shopn'! Se....

This LO I completed for my CT spot over at PGD Blog. It's for a challenge that will be going up over there, this Sunday (9/30/07). You should probably go over and check it out! There were will be some wonderful prizes and a whole lot of fun and inspiration! I honestly had never completed a LO monochromatically, but I so luv the results! Gonna being doing that more often!!! And this one, was a just because LO... Because I had some new products to play with from Designs by Vickies and because I was playing with brushes and all neat effects you can create. Too much fun and way too cool!

Doing a little digi scrappn' today. :) But, only after the work is done... I decided to wash all the bedding today, so everyone has fresh beds tonight. I so luv crawling into bed when everything is fresh & clean. I've also finished up some ironing for the work week. And now that I've completed another creation (see it below), I'm gonna run to the grocery and take my car through the car wash & vacumn it out. After that, I think I'll find my way to my scaproom and traditional scrap for awhile. (Maybe my Emma will join me...) Anhow, here is my latest creation:

This LO is for my CT spot over at the PGD. It's a pic of my Emma before went into the Mall to visit one of her favorite spots... Build-A-Bear Workshop!

Well, off for now! Til later...

Well, I was doing some bloggn' earlier this morning and found on Vicki's Blog that she added some wayyyyy cool products to her store over at Dig Scrap Shak. So, I went on over and checked them out, and boy what awesome products and deals!!! Very unique, so I couldn't resist buying them. :) Here is a preview of what I picked up.

Well, I'm off to work for the day! Tah! Tah!

Good Sunday morning to the world!!! I have been up and at it since about 4:30 a.m.; our kitty Carmel wanted me out of of bed and kept at me until I got up... (Goofy kitty!)

Although, I certainly don't mind because it gave me the opportunity to finish up this LO (Big Third Grader) for the challenge over at Lucky Charms CT Club , Bren Boone's to CT blog. :) I just couldn't pass up her challenge!
Credits can be found here.
Well, I don't have much planned for today... get my ironing done and then I guess I may go outside with the girls and enjoy the Fall cool, crisp air(Bbbbrrrrr...the temp is 49 degrees right now! But, it will warm up.) There is nothing like Fall pics!

Off to check out what's going on over at Pixel Gypsy CT fourm... (I hope I haven't missed anything...)

Tah! Tah! And have a great Sunday!!!

Well, here it Thursday already... Where has this week gone? I have been bustn' butt at work and home, trying to stay on top of things. Why can't there be two of me? LOL!

Well, I finished up another LO yesterday using The Pixel Gypsy's new Autumn Moments. This kit is full of rich Fall colors and with a whole lot of uniqueness!! I am so in love with kit!!! I started this LO on my lunch hour at work yesterday, sent it on home, and finished it up last night. It's funny how this LO looked the first time around and then how it ended up in it's final form... Two completely different LOs. I think the reason for that is, I had two different ideas in my head, tried the first and then the second; I way preferred the second LO for this pic. One of the great things about digi scrappn'. :)

So, here it is. This is a pic of Emma at the park last Sunday, when we spent 3 hours picnicing, playing and relaxing. I really like how the LO turned out... very simplistic.

Well, I guess I best get headn' into work now. Later... Have a great day!

Good Sunday evening! Wow! What a day... a over-all wonderful day! Here a few of the great things that made up my day:

-Did my ironing. (Always do it on Sunday morning... but sometimes not...) Did it today though!!!
-Helped my Mom with something. (I luv being her lil' helper!)
-Emma and I went on a bike ride and picnic, for 3 hours. (Had a blast together!)
-Finished up the laundry. (Again...)
-Scrapped! (3 hours at the park was a great inspiration!)
-And attended an on-line crop with FPD. (So informative and fun.)

Just a perfect day!

And here is a lo I finished up! I used a pic, that I took at the park today, of Emma and I together.(Yep! I took the pic! :) )

Well, off to top of my day by snuggling with my Emma and gettn' her off to bed. Nite!!

Well, it was the first day of Third Grade for my Emma! She was so full of excitement, yet full of nervousness this morning... But, when I picked her up at the end of day, she was calm, cool and collected... LOL! She said her day went great! And she even met a new friend today! And of course I got pics this morning~
Good morning! So how was everyone's longgggg Labor Weekend? Mine was great! I did some cleaning around the house; got the down stairs living room windows washed. (So, now I can say I have washed all the windows in the house this year!) What a great feeling. I took Emma school shoppin' for some new digs. And Emma and I spent the Sunday night with Grandma. We did some scrapn' and watched Charlie & the Chocalate Factory(the first one). Oh, and we just playn' relaxed some.

The hubby has been gone for the weekend; he went North again. He and the boys worked on the new hunting cabin(palace), they are building up there. He comes home today, which is good. We miss him!!!

Well, I finally finished up this LO I've been struggling with, all weekend..... I wasn't using my usual bright colors, so I struggled with it! LOL! I was gettin' angry too. (It almost got deleted...) But, I just couldn't bring myself to doing that, sooooooo here it is.

Saturday, September 1, 2007

Holy Smokers!!! This will be my third post today!!! (Does that mean I've spent too much time at my puter today? LOL!) Not really, because Emma, Grandma and I, went and did some school shoppn' and went out for dinner. So, I haven't just sat at this puter allllllllll day... LOL! (Gotta justify my 3rd post, ya know!)
Anyhow, I'm poppn' on in to post a new LO. It's obviously, pics of my Emma doing a back bend. (And yep, watching her made me nervous...) But, I tried hard to recall myself at the age of 8; I did the same things as her. She is always doing cartwheels(in the house!), back bends, and attempting that "splits" thing. I used the new Shabby Fall Garden kit by Gina Marie Huff and Gina Miller; the kit I picked up and posted about this morning. I just had to bust into it right away!

Well, I'm off to fold a load of laundry! Gotta keep on top of that darn laundry! Tah! Tah!

I'm back and all done shoppn', dln', and unzipn'! Oh my... I did some damage in about 5 different digi stores! :) I made my way on over to ScrapArtiest, SB Bytes, Gina Miller Designs, SB Graphics, and Holly McCaig Designs and found a ton of special priced items and sooooo many hot new items! I must confess... I spent $40!!! :0

This is one the goodies I picked up over at Gina Miller Designs; I coundn't resist~ Cool hey?! I picked up a ton more, but certainly can't begin to display them all. :)

Good Saturday morning to all! Here's to hoping you all have wonderful and lengthy holiday weekend!

The dh has going North for the weekend, so it's just Emma and I. Wooo! Whooo! A girls weekend!!! We have plans of going school shoppn' today; she needs some jeans. (I'm thinkn' I should take my camera with; what fun, shopn' pics would be to scrap!) Oh, it's going to fun... there are sidewalk sales going on over at the Mall!

Since my cleaning lady doesn't come this weekend, it was my job to sweep the floors and vacumn through. So, I got done yesterday afternoon, along with an down-right heavy cleaning of the bathrooms, and I laundered all of the throw rugs in the house. So, other then washing my downstairs living room windows and some laundry, I'm good to go for the weekend!

Well, are you Gold member over at DST? (I am...) And Corina Nielsen is the featured designer there September, one of my favorites. Anyhow, check out the kit she created for us!!! This kit is bright and full of color! Summery End is perfect for ALL of those summer pictures! Includes: 6 papers (4 patterened and 2 coordinating solids), 3 ties ribbons, 3 photo slides with attached flowers and buttons, 1 metal rimmed tag, sequin metal string, floral overlay, word art, and 3 "glass" flowers. Oh, I can't wait to play with that one!!! Thank you Corina!

So, it's Labor Weekend and alot of designers have sales going on! (Too cool!) And this girl has spent my limit already! (Oooppps!) Like $34 worth at 4 different stores!!! But, I found some great products and awesome prices too! So, I have a ton of new products to play with, over the weekend!!!

I am off to unzip those new products and play for awhile! Tah! Tah!
