Here is one I made from the SCRAPIDEES blog, those ladies have some good mojo to share!
"No help needed" this was the girls first day of school and they felt they were too grown to get help tying their shoes...gosh how they melt my heart! Thanks BP for getting me hooked on Picnik.com.
I finally used one of my STUDIO CALICO kits, the DECEMBER kit to be exact : )
I have not touched my kits for the past 7 months so it looks like I'm about to pull them all out and get to work.
Well! That's all I have for today. Have a wonderful night!

I should have know by the way she was born that she was going to be a hand full, she brings us such joy but at time she makes me want to pull my hair out ; )
Coincidentally today I found a copy of her birth announcement and decided to do a layout with my left overs from the DECEMBER KIT at THE PAPER NICHE, and let it be know I still have enough to do at least 2 more layouts : )
This layout was inspired by challenge 14 @ SCRAP IN JAPAN, the ladies there have crazy mojo and truth be told this layout only took 20 something minutes and it was put together on the couch 'cause I wanted to spend time next to Mr. Hubby ; )
OK, I wanted to share some Bday pictures with you but since I have just spent over 30 minutes trying to edit my pictures with NO success I will have to skip that :)
As always ladies THANK you for stopping by to check out my craziness, oh yeah...1 question, have you finished your Christmas shopping??? Believe it or not Mr. Hubby and I went today and can I tell you that I am now broke and have to get a job at the SCRIP CLUB :D :D :D J/K
Anyhoot, have a wonderful week!!!

I hope your week has been great and if it has not...there is always tomorrow : )
The December kit is up for sale at THE PAPER NICHE and once again LEAH has put together a FANTABULOSO kit!!!
Here are my other layouts with the kit
And this layout was inpired by sketch 116 at SCRAPIDEES.
Make sure you stop by THE NICHE'S BLOG to see what the other ladies did.
One more thing, you might not see journaling on my pages, that's because I tend to (A) run out of space and (B) I do NOT like my handwriting ; )
As always, have a wonderful day and I hope that you all have done all your Christmas shopping because I have NOT! :D :D :D

It seems like for ever since my last post and I am going to blame this on the holidays ; )
I have had zero time to scrap, I have not been able to touch my December kit for the PAPER NICHE which by the way is due in 2 days but I have this to share
This is my take on challenge #4 at POINT BLANK PERIOD (a little late but once again Imma blame it on the holidays) and they also have an article on this challenge HERE, so make sure you stop by and come play because the prize is yummmmmy and the challenge is fun.
The journaling is on the back and it reads: I love this time of the year for all the joy and excitement it brings you. I love it because you still believe in Santa and you say he has a key to our house and that is how he is able to get in to bring you your gifts. I love it because our streets and malls are decorated which makes them beautiful. I love it because they play Christmas songs on the radio, especially "All I want for Christmas is You" by Mariah Carey. I love it because Disney has the "Very Merry Christmas" parade and Santa and Mrs. Claus are there and I love Christmas morning because not only is it the day Baby Jesus was born but also the day your cousin Devin was born.
OK, so I need to apologize for the short and boring post but it's super late and I am beat from this crazy week. Hope you are all having a wonderful weekend and as always THANK you for your sweet comments because they make my day : )

Here are some layouts that I did with The Blissful Autumn kit from THE PAPER NICHE
I did this tree by tracing it from one of my Hambley stickers on to some foam, I then transfered it to card stock and covered it with brown Zing embossing powder, then I painted it with some Distree Crackle paint that came with the kit and voila!!!!!!!!!!! an adorable tree : )
I used crackle paint around the edges.
I had so much fun working with this kit that I did it all in under 2 day, this month, this time around I was all about embossing or painting or using crackle accents on my letter.
Sorry for the short and crazy looking post but the girls want to go play so I gotta go : )
Have a wonderful weekend ladies!!! And as always THANK you for your wonderful comments.

Soli had gotten her heands on some markers and decided she was going to paint her entire body. It was all fun and games for her until I started taking pictures and then she got serious. I know the picture are blurry but it was all about getting her in the act.

Boy am I glad today is over, my morning started great, the girls did NOT give me a hard time this morning, the weather was cloudy and a little chilly, I had my favorite brown dress and heels, The Black Eyed Peas "I gotta feeling that tonight's gonna be a good night" (my favorite song) was on the radio and then.....................I was surrounded by negative energy, crabby @$$ people and it was about to suck me in but guess what I did to prevent that from happening,
I went to THE PAPER NICHE and got my hands on the new 7 Gypsies papers and some Prima goodies: )
And this is what I did with it
That's our beautiful Princess with her 2 BFF on her 6'th birthday.
It's amazing how papers, stamps or paints will make me happy, some people drink, some dance, I scrap to get me out of my funk!
Now, my girl LAVERNE is hosting a challenge at BASB and it is super easy and super fun here is my take.
I am thankful for my family, our health, our home and our daily bread, notice that I used a picture of us, a heart for our health, 2 little houses for our home and I gave my little girl fruit stockings for our daily bread : )
The family is also doing one but it is taking them a little longer but here is a picture of the girls doing their project
Are they cute or what?
OK so on the back you have to write about an act of kindness you are going to do for someone, so my act of kindness is.... I am going to help to help out someone who is up to their neck with work.
Now mind you the challenge was until yesterday and since I was super busy this week I can not enter to win that yummy ATC carousel but it was fun making this little girl and when everyone is done with their little girls I am going to hang them on our wall.
Well ladies, as always THANK you for your sweet comments a wonderful week!

I decided to emboss the edges with their Zing! powder which totally rocks my world, so far I only have ten of them but little by little I will have the ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL muahhahhaaaaahhhh!!!!!!!!!!! and while I'm yapping away I wan to so that I am SO sorry for the ghetto shoot but I took those pictures right before I left to take the girls to school and since I left the album at The Niche I did not get to take new picture of it : )
Well ladies, that is all I have for now, as always THANK you for stopping by to check out my crazies and for your sweet comments, have a wonderful weekend!!!

Our third challenge is up at POINT BLANK PERIOD I have to say that this challenge was a very emotional one for me. Here is my take on it.
The journalling reads: October is breast Cancer Awareness month so I had my first mammogram done, a week later I was told I had to get an ultrasound done, a week later I was told "it seems to be a complicated cyst" Today I am scared, scared of the unknown, scared that that our daughters are still too young but I know that with you by my side there is NOTHING we can not overcome.
I kinda sorta broke the rules, we were supposed to use 3 pictures but I needed these 4, on the bottom right I went by myself for my mammogram and the bottom left is the mammogram machine which by the way when I asked the lady if I could take a picture she thought I was crazy but she humoured me and said "OK" the top left is a picture of me and my husband, he felt it was important to be there with me for the ultrasound and I have to admit that I am glad he came and of course on the top right side is the results.
I know some people might think it's kinda weird that I chose to post this but this is good therapy for me, I have yet to share this with my family because there is no need to worry them but this is why I have a blog, it's to share my creative side and to sometimes vent : )

As always, THANK YOU for your sweet comments, have a wonderful week!!!
