So. that means it's Scrapbook Challenges DT work post day. I hope you give the sketch a try.

Here is what I did. I actually did a paper piecing of the owl. It's been so long since I did that I forgot how much i liked going that.

Happy Valentine's Day

I need to finish getting my little projects done for tomorrow. I really enjoy doing Love projects. I did do some scrapping - which has made me happy since I was in a funk. I really like the way these layouts came out. I think I have to check my camera. I am not sure why some of these came out so dark. Ok, so here are the pages. Most of them I made for the SCDT using the Scrapbook Challenges Sketches. I am very excited that as a Design team member I recieved a set of stamps from Kitchen Sink Stamps
KSS- Pretty Petals

for this months creations. I used them on the layout Love makes little things grow and on All you need is Love layout.

All you need is Love

Long Time

It's been a long time since I stopped by and blogged. Life has been so busy lately. I am so happy to say that I was asked to stay on the Scrapbook Challenges Design Team for another term. I'm starting to get my creative juices flowing again. They left me for a bit. But, I feel like things are inspiring me again.

I hope to start posting some fun things again. I currently working on a few things at once. I am moving the Scrappy Chix MSN group to another forum and I am trying to complete a few challenges post on Scrapbook Challenges. These ladies are so inspirational and creative.

Christmas is almost here!!!

I have to get going on my projects. I did some today which I hope to post later. I have to come up with an easy card for my son to make for his class exchange. His teacher decided that this year all the kids would make a card for each student in the class and have a card exchange. I like the idea I just need some thing a 7 yr. old can do and make 20 of them. I have one idea I just need to see how hard it is for him to do. So, Are you doing a card exchange?

I'm excited about the online crop Fiskateers is having this weekend. I hope that you can join in on all the fun. I have to clear my desk so that I can join in on the fun too.

I'll post more in a bit. Enjoy the day!

It's been a while since I blogged. I have to admit I have been feeling down. I always get down this time of year. I remember my Mom and how much I miss her and get real down. Then I remember that I have to go on and be stronge for my kids and start to get going. So the holidays are coming and boy, I am getting excited about them.

I want to share that Rowynn was published in the school paper. She did a outstanding article about Thanksgiving. Liam received A-B Honor Roll. and Kaitlyn is getting into the follow of things.
I have to share a fun story with all of you. Today on my way to school (dropping off the kids) I saw a lovely bunch of ladies on the golf course -- they were seniors. Dressed in matching outfits I thought how cool a group thing. Well, on the way back I was stopped by one of the ladies. She asked if I wouldn't mind taking a picture or two of them. It was a special day for one of them it was Helen's 80th birthday. Her son had special shirts made for them that read - The Golf Club Girls. They all met when they work at a golf course when they were young girls and stayed friends throughout the years.
I agreed to take the pictures and wish Helen a happy birthday. She told me that she picked me from all the other moms going by because she noticed my scrapbook t-shirt and knew I would appreciate a good picture. Helen is right on that one. I think how wonderful to celebrate your 80th birthday and still be so close with all your friends. Amazing!
I have to say I too have some wonderful friends. Cherrie -- is amazing she checked up on me just to see how I was doing during my past few days away from the computer. Nikki -- also checked up on me to be sure I was doing well. Rebbeca -- Lead Fiskateer herself sent me a little packed just because she was thinking of me and wanted to say hello. Amazing to have such wonderful people in my life that care.
Ok now let me share some work with you. Here is the Cell Phone Mini album I made that was published by Scrapbook News and Review.
Later I'll posted some of the layouts I did for Scrapbook Challenges Design Team.

A Little Treat Holder

I made this little treat holder today. I think I'm going to make a few more to give away. This weekend I'm having a little get together. I think this little treat holder would be a nice touch.

Just Sharing...

I just wanted to share some of the things I've been doing. I was given a mission on the Fiskateers - I am part of the FCIA by Lead Fiskateer Angela Daniels. My mission was called Boo. In this mission you had to leave some Halloween goodies on a neighbors door along with a sign that reads BOO! and a cute poem.

I had my kids do the dropping off - Well, they really wanted to do it. We hit three different nieghborhoods. For the neighbors that didn't do anyscrapbooking or crafting I created some cute mini albums alon with some intructions. I know that they are picture takers.

Mini album covers & a view of the inside. They all have removable tags for more pictures and journaling. All paper except Cardstock (black & orange) are Cloud 9.

Also as part of the Scrapbook Challenge DT. I had to do a challenge this week. I do one one called "File it" under C for challenge. You have to use a file folder in a layout or project. I made this mini album using a file folder. I used some Cloud 9 paper for this too. But from a prize I won from Lead Fiskateer Kelly Jo.
File folder album cover & the view from the inside. I hope to fill this with some fun pictures this weekend . We're having a small Halloween party.
I hope you are inspired to do your own version of Mission Boo!
I wanted to share that my Mini Cell Phone Album has been published in Scrapbook News and Review E-zine. I am so excited about it. Go over to the site and check it out!
