Got to use my Silhouette on the second layout...love it! I have to say that it might not be a good idea for me to keep scrapping so late in the evening. I enjoy it so much that I have a hard time getting to sleep at night. I just want to keep going...not good on a school night. Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your night!

It comes with a cute little chipboard book from Creative Imaginations that I am working on now. Love it. Love mini books! One of my favorite assignments from my HOF entry was my mini book. I have that book displayed in my scraproom, and I stop to look through it so often. Fun stuff! So, stop back tomorrow, and I will have some scrapbooking goodness to share! Enjoy the rest of your day!

I can, however, share with you one of the layouts that did not make the cut for my HOF entry. Since I can't share the layouts that I did enter, this one will have to do for now
I also got a great picture of Ryan and his buddy, Devn, the other day at the park. They are just growing up so fast and both getting so handsome! Love these guys so much!
I hope everyone is enjoying their week so far. I have officially completed my University classes for the Spring semester as of yesterday....woot woot! Pretty sure I busted out a 4.0! Yeah for me! Now, let the summer begin! Have a great night!

I used some cool Fancy Pants felt here...love that stuff! I also cut the blue part of my title out with my new Silhouette! So glad to have gotten the chance to use it. I am sure that I can do so much more with it, but we'll take baby steps for now! I still have some time to get another layout started, so I am off! Enjoy the rest of your Sunday!

I hooked this baby up already and am ready to get cuttin'! Stayce recommended some places for me to go to share files and such. I think I know how I will be spending my scrappy time this weekend. It is killing me that I have to wait, but real life is always a priority. Off to a school board meeting tonight. Hope everyone is having as good a day as me!

This is one of my layouts that I created a few months back.
This is just an example of what I am talking about here. It was not until after the layout was done that I added the white and black dotted lines around parts of the layout. I also did not add the tag in the upper left hand corner (held on with staples) and the round "achieve" tag toward the lower right until later. And lastly, I added the straight lines to the right and above the journaling after the fact. These tiny little things just made me happy.
What are some of the little things that make you happy?

I am very honored to have been asked to contribute some artwork to her book (Thanks, Linda!), and I see that she has an awesome group of gals who also contributed. They are Kelly Noel, Amy Licht, Summer Fullerton, Lisa Damrosch, Lisa Moorefield, Kim Moreno, and Ali McLaughlin. Now there certainly is a lot of talent in that list. Not to mention the extreme talent of Linda. I have seen a small sample of some really great ideas packed in this book. Lots of different ways to get your scrap on! I believe it will be available in September 2008, so keep your eyes peeled!
I'm finishing up some school work tonight, so I have no scrappy goodness to share. Hopefully, I will get a chance to finish up a layout that I am working on. G'nite!
Today has been a pretty mellow day...working on a research paper for class, ironing clothes, and celebrating my kitty, Skippy's birthday!
He is 14 years old this month. I am embarrassed to say that I do not know his exact birthday. I got him right out of college at a time when details like that were not so important. I've celebrated his birthday in April every year since. I guess you can say it is a month long celebration! He has been with me through so many things: boyfriends, interstate moves, break-ups, losing jobs, getting jobs, my pregnancy, Ryan's birth, the adoption of my other kitty (Miss Kitty), the passing away of Miss Kitty (very hard for him) just to name a few. Losing his buddy, Miss Kitty, was very hard on him. He was so lost after she was gone. I've often tossed around the idea of getting another cat, but I never followed through. No one could take Miss Kitty's place. So, Skippy is my one and only. He has such a personality on him. Crabby, yet lovable! They say pets take after their owners...so what does that say about me??? So, Happy Birthday, Skippy! Here's hoping for many more years!
