FINALLY... I can blog!

Man oh man!! What a stretch! Sick kids, sick me... it feels like it's never going to end! This morning I have n kids with a fever, and no kids sounding like they are going to caugh up a lung... so it's looking like a good day! 2 are still on antibiotics and one is still home from school... but it's still a better day!!
It gets so overwhelming when the little ones are sick! The baby was even sick... and was up a LOT at night. Needless to say, if Mamma isn't sleeping... things fall apart here!
However... i slept last night! (we won't mention DH's snoring... ;) So I feel decent today! Decent is much better than horrible! So here I am... blogging away! :)

First order of business... i have 2 raks to give away!!

#1... Best Creation Blog Hop RAK:

My word for the year is follow-through. I'm forever promising myself that I'm going to start inviting people over to lunch, take the time to call an old friend, or I'm going to start some new program and then life gets busy ... This year I'm going to make an effort to do these little things within a reasonable amount of time from when I think about them.

CONGRATS girls!!! I'll be in touch to get your mailing addresses to get your goodies out to you!!

I also have a couple of toots to share...

*I have a LO requested for Canadian Scrapbooker summer 2011!
*I have another LO requested for Scrap Street Ezine for April 2011! I think it's my first time in there! It's a Best Creation layout too! :) And of course, it uses Helmar Adhesives! :)

Now I suppose I should share a page with you... since you've been so patient with me these last couple of weeks! :) This page was done using the Travel Forever collection from Best Creation! I honestly struggled with this line. Not because it is not GORGEOUS! But because I don't travel very much... so that's what I decided to scrap about!
The fun thing about the new collections from Best Creation is that they have die cut papers, die cut sticker sheets, mini alpha's AND Chipboard!! Yeah!! LOT'S of fun coordinating embellies!! Most of this page is BC goodies. I added some Jute, "DREAM" is Pink Paislee alpha, a couple of random eyelets, a Jenni Bowlin die cut and some card stock! The rest is all BC goodness! Of course I used my Helmar Premium craft glue to hold most of it together! Some liquid scrap dots was used for the flowers.I loved this die cut paper! What die cut paper you ask? The one that I cut the top and bottom off and added together in the middle of my page! I hid the seam using a die cut sticker border!! Such fun!

Thanks so much for stopping by! There is so much scrappy stuff going on... some fabulous design teams to apply for... waiting for word on Spellbinders... (EEK!) Some creating that I can't share yet... and this week I've committed to making nothing but cards! EGADS! Can you believe it? Me neither, but I want to get better at them... and that takes a bit of work, right?
So, off I go to tackle some cards! :)
have a fabulous day!!
Until Next time... Happy Scrapping!!


  1. congrats on the pubs!! love your layout!

  2. I absolutely LOVE this layout of yours and the way you used that die cut paper!!! So glad to hear that everyone is feeling better and things are getting back to normal, it's just soooo hard when the kiddos are sick and no one is sleeping! Good luck with the card making, I'm sure they'll be fantastic! :)

  3. :) :) :) Good morning ... I love that layout! Now, the tightly coiled flowers ... did you make those with scalloped edged paper? They look better than a lot of ones I've seen around the various blogs! Have fun making your cards ... glad your kids are better!

  5. Okay - the comment that says it's from Chuck is actually from me - I was using his computer and didn't stop to think he might be signed in - sorry!
