Sneak Peak

As you know I am on the Design Team for Scrapbook Challenges. I was ask to make a layout using a certain sketch created by Pamela {Who is very talented}. I wanted to give you a little Sneak Peak of the layout I did for ScrapbookChallenges The full reveal will be on the 1st. I hope you join us for all the fun!

Where's My Getupandgo!?!?

I'm laying a bit low today. I am felling down -- My babies had a bad day yesterday. Their pet hamster passed away. The worst thing is that they only had him for about 4 days. I feel so bad for them. They pooled their money togethter to get him. I wasn't so sure from the begining but, since they worked together to buy and care for him I agreed.

So yesterday afternoon just I had to leave to pick them up from school my oldest found him in his cage. So sad -- Long night of tears.

So today I'm tired and drained. I have to get my getupandgo because i have so many other projects to do. So I'm hope that in a few it will kick in.

And The WINNER is.....

I had my daughter Rowynn pick out the name from the box.
Name picked

However you really couldn't see it so we wrote it on cardstock. When DH walk into the room and said hey - why don't you use Rowynn's top as part of the name. So here it is. Read it from the top to the cardstock.

All Wet!!

My morning has been wet. I stepped into my scrap area and relized that the carpet was wet. We had a flood. Our AC is busted and started to leak. So I managed to pick up everything i could I had to move everything out and start shop vacing it all. Now we have get the AC fixed. Aahh Life.

I guess I need to change things around anyway. So my bad day is going to be your good day. I have a cute round Tin{about 4" in diameter} perfect for altering and creating a mini album inside. I'll fill it with some flowers{silk & paper} that would be a nice giveway. Yes, they are dry and clean just in case you are wondering-LOL

All you have to do is leave me a comment about your day good or bad and I'll pick a winner on Wednesday.

Here are some pictures of the tin

CropGirls's Challenge

This is for Fiskateer Stephanie aka CropGirl's Challenge. She wrote "I challenge you to create a layout using 6 pictures minimum!"

Here is my entry.

CFD Training

On Friday - I attended another Certified Fiskars Demonstrator Training at my local AC moore. I went to support Rebecca (Lead Fiskateer) & Meghan. It was great to see so many ladies excited about the program.
I was able to catch up with a friend and make new ones like Linda "The Arrow" Fiskateer -- she is so much fun. After, my sister (who happens to be a Fiskateer), Denise, Cherrie and I went out dinner. Then we went to a crop at Piktails my local scrapbook store. We closed the place down.

Rebecca & Meghan were there spreading the Fiskateer Love! They had prizes and make & takes for all the ladies at the crop. I was so happy to see so much Fiskalove. I know we will be getting some new Fiskateers real soon. WooHoo!! I was able to help out when needed which was a lot of fun.

I have to tell you that Rebecca is a hoot! That girl can really make you bust a stitch from laughing.


I finally decided to create a blog. I know -- I'm a bit late to get on the wagon. Yet, here I am.

So why now? I hope that I can inspire people to create. I love to scrapbook, sew, paint and do general crafts. I love to introduce others to scrapbooking by sharing my projects and teaching them how to do layouts.

Thanks for stopping by.
