My new DT!

Yay! I'm now a member of the DT over at Beary Box!! Woot woot!! I have one weekly sketch LO to complete each week, should be fun.

This weekend I played in the crop over at Scrapbook Heaven. I had a blast! I seriously crafted for the ENTIRE weekend and only tonight (Tuesday) did I get the nerve to vaccum up the remains and evidence...lol. I completed the 11 challenges and was super proud of myself-- but I didn't win :( But that's ok!

Here are a couple LO's I did for the crop!

Happy Halloween!

I am sooooo in the Halloween spirit these days. This is a LO of our nephew just last Halloween (it was his first!!).
I created this last night using the Creative Scrappers sketch. It also fits for the Sisterhood of Scrap challenge which is to use Halloween Colors, and I'm also gonna use this for the Scrap your CRAP challenge this week, which is to use your Halloween crap...lol...and this is all goodies that I picked up last year (minus two pieces of paper I got in a kit this weekend).
Do you like this?

Unpubbed Lift

This is a scraplift of a LO over on Unpubbed (Kim's). I used stamps to make a border and just little blings (for lack of better words...lol)...it took forever to glue each of these on...lol. But I loved the end look! :)

Open Call!

"Special Time"...this is my entry for the open call over at Unpubbed. I wasn't sure first if I was suppose to scraplift Telah's LO or what it was. So I did use her LO for inspiration, and it actually turned out being one of my new fave LO's...hope you enjoy it! :)

This was my entry for the Sisterhood of Scrap challenge this past week. The challenge was to create a LO that makes you laugh!! Well!! This one certainly does this. It is of my mom and her hubby while he was taking off her garter. Mom had tucked a pair of sparkly panties inside her gater and her her hubby take them off and pretend to the crowd that he took her panties off with his mouth---- ohhhh myyyyyyy...lol. The crowd went into a uproar. It was too funny.

The sketch used for this LO was actually the Sketch Saturday that was posted this past Saturday, I loved it, so much inspiration.

And those flowers on the left-hand side I made myself. I have no fancy tools, so I traced them out, cut 'em and used one of my rounded markers dipped in water to make the petals look like that. Then out came my hairdryer to dry them...lol.

Hope you all had an awesome Thanksgiving Day! I know I did! I ate wayyyyy too much turkey, and we will probably be eating it for the next week...lol. Thanks for stopping by!

Oh!! And I will be having a blog candy in the next while, whenever I can get to a good store to get some yummy things. So keep dropping back :)

Wedding LO's

These are two more LO's for my mom's wedding scrapbook I am doing for her. The first LO is of their best friend who sang a song while she walked into the church, and also when they were signing the register I believe. The sketch used for this is from Creative Scrappers.
The second LO is of the song lyrics, I used similiar paper for each as they will go side-by-side in the album. Hope you're having a great day!!

New Look???

Well!! This is a "new" look I tired from an online techniques class. It's SUPPOSE to look grungy!?! Yeahhh, not so much. It looks more girlie then anything, but yet, I still like it. Everything here is inked and stapled. My first time using staples, and I really enjoyed it. Maybe next time I will actually try a more "grungy" look....?? What do you think about this LO?

The music note paper I actually just downloaded from the internet (just google vintage music sheets- if you need a link let me know!) and then I just wrinkled it up in a ball, unfolded it and just inked it all up with my brown ink pad.

The sketch for this LO is from inspiration from 52 Sketches...52 Weeks. It's lightly based, but the sketch is wonderful, go over and check it out! :)

Peaceful LO

This is a LO I completed this weekend for the Sisterhood of Scrap challenge of the week. The challenge was to use a photo that didn't have any people in it! I LOVE THIS PHOTO!! It is taken inside my car by my moms house one evening when it was raining. My roomie was bored and she was waiting for me, so she took this pic.

A Friend Is...

A friend is...dependable, forgiving, forever (that's whats written in the circles). This is my two friends and I at our high school graduation in 2004!
This is another LO I completed for the crop over at Scrapbook Heaven and ONCE AGAIN I forgot to upload it...lol. I LOVE THIS LO!! The sketch came from Deanne's sketchs over at A Scrap Addict's Sketches!

This is a card I made for one of my girlfriends upcoming birthday.
This card also fits along with the challenge over at Punkydoodle Papers to make a birthday card. And if you get this done by tomorrow you will be entered for a chance to win a mini sewing machine..woot woot. I would do anything to get one of these babys!! I love sewing, however, handsewing takes forever, and I love the look of a sewing machine. I just wish I had some $$ to buy one :)

I've Been Tagged!

Wooooo! My first tagged experience...heehee...I feel so popular (although it has taken quite a while to post this!) !!

I was tagged by both Beverley and Tina!! Thanks ladies !!

1. Link your tagger and list these rules on your blog.
2. Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
3. Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
4. Let them know they have been tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

So here goes:

1. I have a 2 hour nap nearly every evening I get home from teaching. To all you teachers out there you are amazing and you need a pat on the back!

2. I'm a family sook! I love 'em all more then anything and I wish I was back in high school so I could be around them every day instead of every few months.

3. Want a weird one!?! I NEED to smell my deodorant EVERY time I put it on. It cracks my boyfriend up when he sees me do it.

4. I have achy wrists ALL OF THE TIME. It makes for painful typing on the computer and also it bothers me when I scrap. Too many years using the computer :(

5. I have a pet lizard. His name is Mondo, he creeps the heck out of me, but I love him...lol. My roomie has a pet crab now too, and he's SUPER creepy and oddly shy.

6. I love salt and vinegar seasoning on my popcorn. So much that I take my finger and clean out the bowl afterwards..lol...

7. I've never had a manicure or pedicure. My brother is suppose to pay for my roomie and I to go sometime, but money seems to be a little short right now, so hopefully we get to go soon :)

It's your turn girls; I'm calling you out, but only if you want to play!

Prince Gets Dunked!

Heehee! This is of my boyfriend in the dunk tank (someone has to throw a ball at a hole in a board next to this tank and if they get the ball in the hole, the lever pushes the person on the swing into this tank of water!! too fun!!) this summer at Long Island Day. He was up there so long that he had to put his shirt back on (it was freezing that day) and he even had time for a nasty smoke!

This is my layout for the October 1st sketch over at Am I A Scrap Addict? ! Can't wait to check out all of the other LO's- so pop on over and have a look!
