Scrap Happy

Well you all know that I have had limited scrap time lately with adjusting to working full time. However, when I got home last night I was determined to get a LO done. That is exactly what I did. I made this LO for the GDT spot at CMK for March. The Patterned papers are from Making Memories Noteworthy line. Felt is Prima and Fancy Pants, Heart journal stickers are Creative Imaginations, Chipboard is Making Memories and the alpha stickers are SEI

Plus I ordered me some Pink Paislee products yesterday. I cannot wait to get my hands on this stuff. I am going to a store crop night next Friday with my Buddy Charissa. Believe it or not this is the first time EVER I have gone to a store to crop. Maybe this is what I need to get me back on track. That and being surrounded by all kinds of scrap goodies. Hopefully I accomplish something and not just shop! LOL.

Remember Saturday March 1st is the last day to sign up for the LAST SCRAPPER STANDING contest at Scrappin' with Grace. Check us out here. Winner will receive a $50 prize package from Cosmo Cricket

It's almost Friday!!! YAY!

On a Roll

Twice in one week. You all are probably thinking its about time! LOL. Anyways we took Jeffrey to the bowling ally yesterday to celebrate his 7th birthday. It was a ton of fun and I didn't even bowl. Next time. When we got home I asked the birthday boy what he wanted mom to make for his birthday dinner. All he wanted was egg noodles with alfredo sauce. Easy enough! Gotta love a simple guy. He is like his dad when it comes to dinner. They don't want or need a big 3 course meal. Whew!! LOL. So I am totally pooped today at work and not able to slow down yet. Our Crab Feed is this weekend for my sorority. So I will have one more super busy weekend before I get another break. HOWEVER I did get some more projects done this weekend. Simple stuff but it felt good to have something new down on a page.

The first one is from our cruise to Ensenada for our conference with sorority, the second one is of Jeffrey and my SIL Melissa at Christmas with Jeffrey's new nerf guns.

Both lines are from Reminisce(Flirt and Genuine Boy).. Have a great day!

I have a chance to get on here and update AND have projects to share. January and February are so super busy for us. Add in my job and I have given myself NO free time. I finally got a few moments to create something with my acrylic flowers from Page Frames. I have taken them to work so brighten up my cubie.

Here they are by themselves.

This one I used papers from Basic Grey's 2 scoops line and Prima flowers

This one is all Making Memories Noteworthy line w/flowers from Petaloo.

It felt great to get some new projects under my belt. Here is a birthday card I made for my Father In Law for his 60th. The Frame,ribbon and patterned paper are all from prizes I have won at Crop Addict. Thanks Debbie!

We actually have another busy weekend. Monday my little guy turns 7. I guess he is not so little anymore. We are taking him bowling w/his friends on Monday. Tomorrow night we are going out to dinner with our family. Today he has little league try-outs. Seems like yesterday that he was toddling around the house. Good Times. I hope you all have a great weekend. I know I will. HUGS!
