What a Scraptacular Getaway!


Hello all, Well I have had a crazy week. Back to work which means back to school, The weather outside has been really really hot which also means that the kitchen that I work in is really really hot as well. I get home and just want to drop, Luckily I get off of work at 1pm. so that is a total positive!
This past weekend, I went to a Scraptacular Getaway. 3 days of Scrapbooking Bliss! I actually got some scrapbooking done! 5 layouts done, I was so excited! The photo at the top is one of the ones that I completed. It was from our camping trip to Half Moon Bay. We camped on the beach. So totally cool, I love the beach! I actually tied for 2nd. place on this layout.
Brandon let me bury him in the sand and the middle picture is of his toes(We couldnt get them to stay burried. I just happened to have these cute tootsie paperclips, so that was perfect!
I havent quiet figured out how to format my photos on Blogger yet, so bear with me. The other photos are just random of me at ther retreat. I had a great weekend and wished that it would never end. That is the scrapbooker in me talking!
Well more later, Ive missed you all!

cute SCS 3X3 card box




Well I challenged myself tonight to do this really cool tutorial over at Splitcoast and I am really pleased as to how it turned out. I even went to Joannes today and paid $1.99 for a piece of patterned paper just for this project. The paper is by Cloud 9 design and I just loved the brown with the blues and pinks and reds. I also used my corner rounder to scallop the edges of the Rose red cardstock and that was totally easy. I have never tried it before, Usually I use my scallop scissors, only to have a crooked scallop, well, using the rounder it turned out perfect. I had a little problem with the lid but I concealed it so you cant really see my mistake. anyways, What do ya think? I think I am going to make a bunch of these and give them to friends!
Well I have a softball tourn. very early tomorrow so I am outta here! Hugs to all my fella creative sistahs!

Technostamper sketch challenge #30



ok, here is a creation that I made for "Technostamper" sketch challenge #30. What inspiration, and I have needed that. I spend many hours at my computer and get no cards created, This really helped. Go on over and check out her blog and maybe even play along!

This card I use some retired SU! double sided paper and put that under the clear buttons and also in the corners. I used Pretty in pink,Perfect plum and whisper white cardstocks. The stamp I used is from Great impressions out of Washington state. For the most part I think it turned out pretty cute! Let me know what you think!

Rocker girl


Here is a card that I made with Inspiration from Jessica over at Stamp & Create. I titally loved this layout and had the perfect paper for it. I love the skull and crossbones along with the hearts. Totally rockin out! I used basic black and real red being my card base. And the most awesome Bella
"Rockabella" She is so cool! To top it off I used some glod star eyelets. Enjoy!
