More new LO's!

I'm Loving this creative streak I'm in!!! It feels great to be back at it!!

These first 2 are done using the May kit from Scrapbook sussies... The first being obvious... babies first sloppy and slobbery kisses... always special to Mommy! :)

This one is about my son and his name for his finger... The journaling reads:
“WHAT” you may ask, “is a FINGYOU?” If you
know Sammy at all, you will know that this was his
name for his FINGER. But it ended the day we
had this conversation.

Mommy: Sammy, what do you call this? (pointing to his finger).
Sammy: It’s my Fingyou!
Mommy: OK, Thank you.
Sammy: Mommy, what you call it?
Mommy: I call it a FINGER.
Sammy: Oh, FINGER.
Mommy: But you can still call it a FINGYOU. I like that.
Sammy: Nope, It’s a finger.

And so marked the end of the FINGYOU.

The third LO is done using Christmas pics... which i normally hate scrapping, but that's 2 Christmas LO's this week! WHOOO!!

Hope you enjoy! :)

I've been scrapping!

Man it feels good to create!! I've had my groove on the last couple of days and got 3 LO's done and have 2 more that need just to have the journaling done on them... I'm really pleased with them! i even dug into some Christmas pics, which i usualy hate to scrap!
Anyway, here they are... enjoy!
The first is done for Scrapbook Sussies using the May kit... it was SO awesome, and unique to play with!! I used a pic of DH and I from our Anniversary weekend... not the greatest pic, but on well! :)

This next one I did using pics of DS from DD's Gymnastics show... He had a blast dancing to the LOUD music... and I had a blast taking his pic! :) He's SO photogenic! And I loved using the new PRIMA goodies!

And the last one is using pics of DD from Christmas past... and more Prima goodies!
I used the JUNE Sketch from the Prima Blog... so i just might enter it in their contest! :)

I also want to say that I'm overwhelmed with the # of people visiting my blog since I was featured at pencel lines!! Please continue to visit, and remember I LOVE hearing from you!! :)

Happy Anniversary to US!

Well, it's raining out in Saint John NB, but it's nice and sunny in here is our Presedential suit!! Yep, DH and I took off for the weekend to celebrate our 8th Anniversary!! We just came to SJ because we had tickets to see the Gaithers Homecoming Concert on Sat evening! It was a great concert, but LONG!!! 4 1/2 hrs! I was amazed! Good for the $, but those seats are hard! LOL!
Anyway, just wanted to check in from the hotel! The room is just gorgeous!! 42 inch TV, King sized 4 poster bed, Jacuzzi... kitchenette, Droom table... just a beautiful room! I'm so thrilled that DH decided to get this room! It DID cost a bit more, but it's not like we go out that often! So we splurged! :) And I'm SO glad!! That tub makes it ALL worth it! LOL!
Yesterday we vegged for the morning then tood off around 1PM to walk around and get lunch! We ate at CORA'S which is always SO good!! We walked all over the place, it was SUCH a gorgeous day, even for SJ! LOL! Then we came back, I took a nap, then we got an in room movie... the Other Bolyn Girl... good movie! Didn't turn out like I thought it would though! Eek! Then we went out for Chinese food for supper! I was SO full!! Then we HAD to watch the Season Finale for Desperate Housewives... kind of disappointing, but we got to watch it from the Javuzzi, so that was all good! :)

This morning we're just vegging out since we don't have to check out until 1! I think it's time for another bath! :) I'll be a wrinkled prune by the time we get home!
I'll get some pics to post leter!! This room is so beautiful!

Happy Anniversary Baby! I love you more than you know!

Live on Pencil Lines!

And please, give my sketch a go!! And let me know... I just might have a little RAK for someone who uses it and posts a comment here! :)

Some recent projects

And by recent, i mean done in the last 2 months since I last loaded! :)

Paper Jam Studio April Kit and Designs

I had the awesome priviledge of working with the April SWEET AND SASSY kit from Find the kit here...

Here's what I did with it!!

Latest in Scrappy News

Hmmm... let me think! What has happined in the last couple of months in the lines of scrappy news...

First... I was in the top 3 for the So You Think You Can Scrap at! I didn't win first place, but The girl who did TOTALLY deserved it!! I was honored to be in the top 3!!! What amazing talent was in that contest!!!

Secondly... I won a Guest Designer spot for Pencil Lines Sketch blog! This blog ROCKS and you HAVE to check it out!! Thanks to Natalie for telling me about their contest! We had to create a LO and a sketch... and i was one of 3 chosen! WOW! That is SUCH an honor for me! I admore these scrappers SO much and go to this blog constantly for inspiration! I believe in another week or so will be my week! Be sure to ckeck it out!!

Third... my DT term finished at Paws On Scrapbooking. It is sad, but the new talent they brought in is amazing and well deserve the positions! I'm still very active there, and will always be a Pawsie Gal! :)

Fourthly... Found out that my Term at Scrapbook Sussies is continuing! Love the kits here and it's nice that it has no MB to keep up with as well, as life has been pretty crazy lately! :)

Went to a crop thru our LSS PAWSONSCRAPBOOKING and had a fantastic time! I SO needed to get out and scrap! Got 5 LO's done which I'm SO pleased with! And had a great time chatting with friends and hanging out! SO needed to go! :)

Well, that's all I can think of that's new for now! :) Time to post some recent work now! :)

Expecting #4

Hello my blogger friends! I have been the baddest little blogger lately... it's been 2 months since i updated! Bad girl!! I do have a good reason though!!

I'm pregnant with baby #4!! EEK!! Unexpected surprise... though I'm fine with it! I have been HORRIBLY sick though and am just coming out of it! FINALLY!!! It feels So good not to be feeling like crap all the time! I'll say one thing... whoever came up with the term "morning sickness" must have been a man!! Cause I was sick ALL DAY LONG!!! Morning was actually my best time! LOL!

Anyway, that's my news! And unfortunately when I'm preggers I loose my passion for scrapping! <> Is it possible? It is, and it's the weirdest thing EVER! Scrappy stuff actually makes me feel sick to my stomach! but I fight it, and scrap some anyway, buy not nearly enough! But I AM getting thru that stage and am looking forward to getting into some of the AMAZING new supplies that I've continued to purchase!! Prima... I'm drooling just thinking about it all!!

So, that's my news and my excuse... am I forgiven? To make up for it, I'll continue on with more posts regarding recent scrappy news, kits and projects!
Thanks for reading, visiting and being patient with me! :)
