My Newest Creations!!

I have been SOOO busy working away on my newest creations and I'm SOOO excited to share what I have created so far!

First up is the RAK I won from the Dixie Pieces online crop, it is a LOVE album from Secret Scrapper Products!! Well all I can say is I LOVE this album!! It was SOOO much fun to do! I won a Cloud 9 "Be Loved" prize pack at my LSS Hannah's when they had a Fiskateer come to their Friday night crop this month, so I used that to make this album. My plan is to add pictures each Valentine's Day to this book, so I started with the first 3 years that I have. And no I didn't add wings to the first picture I actually took the boys to Picture People and for their first Valentine's Day had them take pictures dressed up as cupid! :) My hubby still can't believe I did it!

And my next project is from the grand prize I won from Dixie Pieces online crop! I won their January 2008 kit! And let me tell you it is VERY AWESOME!!!! I am SOOO loving it!! They still have more available so go get yourself one too! The only thing I added to this was the MM glitter chipboard letters and the SEI sticker letters. This kit contained Studio 8 PP, Bazzill cardstock and BLING paper!! It also had Maya Arts ribbons, Heidi Swapp, Scenic Route, Foofla, and Queen & Co!!! :) I am also working on the Maya Road sheer snowflake album that came with the kit too, I just need some more pics and then I'll share that one!

Well I am going to be scrappin my heart out this weekend with one of my scrappin pals so I will have some more fun stuff to share with you on Monday!

Have a GREAT Weekend!

I'm Back!!!

I know I have fallen off the net for a while! I had to get through a week of DH being home and then last week was spent running errands and CLEANING from top to bottom for the boy's birthday party! I just had SOOO much to do! I just briefly would check my e-mail and quickly glance at the message boards and once in a while leave a quick post! So now things have quieted down and I can return to scrappin' and chattin'! I just have to get through a kid's play date Saturday and Easter, and then I will REALLY have peace and quiet!

So I managed to get through close to 40 people in my house (that is NOT that big!) and all seemed to go well! The boy's had a blast and got some really nice presents! Their favorite may be a tie between the tricycle & helmet and a CARS shirt! They got some summer clothes and some $$ and gift cards so we will be hitting the mall to use those to complete their summer wardrobe! Here are a couple pics of the b-day party!

Yes Joseph fell and has a scratched up face just in time for his birthday! On Thursday we had come home to unload groceries and then get back in the car to go to some more stores and when we were getting ready to leave again they both went running down the driveway and well being SOOOO tired due to no nap Joseph tripped somehow and fell on his face!! At first it didn't look bad at all, but within a couple seconds his nose and everything started bleeding! I was SO afraid he broke his nose! But thankfully he didn't!

We took the boys on Friday night their actual birthday to Chili's for dinner. (their choice) They had a GREAT time being able to eat all kinds of fun things and get whatever they wanted to drink with dinner and then the evening was topped off with a birthday sundae!

Well on a scrappy note I finally finished the letters I bought back in January for the boys room! I really had fun doing those! Here are some pics and some pics of their big boy room!

Well I should get a few more things done so I can get to scrappin' later!! I only have 100's of pics waiting for me!! :) Oh yeah I finally cleaned and organized my dungeon space, so when I get down there later I will take some pics to post of my space! And one final note I had mentioned I took the leap and applied for a DT with Scrappy Girl Designs and as I suspected I did not make the DT. Maybe one day I will make one!

These are the days!!!

I have been having SOO much fun with the boys lately, they are at that fun age where they REALLY get into things! We went to Toys R Us on Thursday to look at tricycles for their birthday and they had a blast trying to ride them around the bike section of the store! We had nothing else to do that day so we spent HOURS walking up and down EVERY aisle looking at all the toys and talking and just having a GREAT time together! I can't even begin to describe how much fun I had with them! After Toys R Us we went next door to Party City to decide on a theme for their party, and well they had a hard time, they REALLY want Little Einsteins and I am NOT finding that in any stores! I have found it on E-Bay and online stores, but I have less than 2 weeks and there has GOT to be a store that carries it!!!!

Saturday Joseph pooped on the potty for the first time and his reward was ice cream so we went to Culver's for dinner followed by our favorite yummy frozen custard!! Mmmmmm!!! :) They were good for the most part and just acting So much more grown up!

Sunday we went to get the boy's haircuts and then we had Taco Bell for lunch. Well I feel SOOO bad for the poor ladies who had to cut their hair! Neither of them sat very well and as a result we have some lopsided shorter than I wanted haircuts! As a bribery tactic DH gave them a lollipop!! Their first one ever! I am the mom who tries to keep as much of that unnecessary junk away from them as possible, and well add another thing Daddy gave them when I said no. They were definitely cute with them! They called them "chalk"!! :) I got some cute pics and can't wait to make some pages! The "chalks" sit unfinished on a plate as neither one wants it to be gone!

My DH is on vacation this week and today we took the boys to the Museum to see dinosaurs (big hit these days)! Well it was an absolute hit with the boys! It was SOOO much fun with them, and SOOO neat to see how they are growing up. Time flies SOO fast I can't believe we are days away from their 3rd birthday!!

Well I can't wait to get back to scrappin' as I have SOOO many new pics to use! I can't wait for Friday night as Hannah's is having their monthly crop and a Friskateer is coming to do demos and ALL kinds of fun stuff!! Word is there are a couple spots left so if you are anywhere near Antioch IL you HAVE to come!! Hannah's crops are the BEST!!! LOVE, LOVE, LOVE Hannah's!! And you get AWESOME discounts too!

And finally speaking of scrappin' I tried out for the first time for a Design Team! I still can't believe I actually did it! I tried out for Scrappy Girl Designs and well we should hear on Friday! I also just found out I won a $10.00 gift certificate to their store from their cybercrop 2 weeks ago! I am SOO excited to get some fun goodies from there!

Well off to my chores!



Thanks For Visiting!
