Feeling HAPPY

What an amazing and generous company huh? I am diving into all of this fabulous product RIGHT NOW...YUM!!! So yes, this makes me VERY HAPPY!!! Expect to see A LOT of Glitz Design in the near future:-)

Next, I am thrilled to have been "spotted" over at the Jillibean Soup blog - check it out HERE.

And finally, I am excited to have been in the top three over at Two Peas - I am often in the top ten but I am ecstatic to have been in the top three:-)

First day of Kindergarten

My "Spring Cleaning" mojo has kicked in ... no not with the areas of my house that desperately need it ... my scrap room (MUCH more fun), and I have realized that I *should* probably do something with the 50 or so layouts stacked in a pile on my shelves..LOL!! I am NOT a chronological scrapper - I find it much more liberating to scrap what I want, whenever BUT there comes a day when these layouts should find a more permanent all of this babbling is just to tell you that I am going back to "fill in the holes" so I can put these all away.

So that brings me to today's layout, my daughters first day of kindergarten! I can not believe that it is almost over....eek!!! For this page I fell in love with October Afternoon's rub on's and I almost managed to put the whole package onto this one page hee hee! Other supplies include Creative Imaginations paper, Bo Bunny paper, Thickers, Making Memories letter stickers and CTMH buttons. I also used a KI memories number diecut paper and spritzed it green!

My Mind's Eye - Ninabrook Designs Kit

Today is reveal day for Ninabrook Designs. This time the designers were given the 4 page My Mind's Eye kit to work with and you can purchase it HERE for only $15 (Canadian). Head to the blog to check out Jill's and Kristine's amazing layouts too:-)

I had fun working on these pages but you will have to pardon the pictures on the second layout (my favourite time of the day). My five year old took the pics but I really wanted to document how my youngest crawls into bed with me every morning. It is the BEST way to wake up:-) unless of course, she comes in TOO early...LOL about a BIG BLOWOUT sale on My Mind Eye products? Ninabrook Designs is selling kits worth $55-$60 for only $19.99!!!!! Check out the details HERE and scroll down to the Coastal kit, Flirty kit and then on page 4 the Natural kit and the Sundress kit. Amazing deals huh?

Always Outside

Hooray.....Spring has officially arrived! It is not exactly warm out today but yesterday the girls spent the afternoon on the trampoline:-)

My big project these days is to plan several layouts and edit and print off the photos needed for them. All too often I spend my time going through my photos online and picking some to match my paper. I think it is easier the other way around and I KNOW that I scrapbook more when my photos are out and ready to go. Take this layout, I found these photos sitting on my desk yesterday and boom, just like that they are scrapped! I used the fabulous February kit from A Million Memories.

How can someone so small and so sweet....

...BE SO LOUD??!!! Seriously, she is three, has the sweetest doll face ever (I know I am biased) but the girl is LOUD! She is loud when she is happily playing, it's true, her shrieks of joy are almost as painful to my ears as her upset shrieks....almost. And, yes, my "doll" can be quite a stinker at times, you should hear her yell at her sister. Ouch. Yup, she is loud. But the thing is, she will make a liar out of me if you ever meet her. Shy and quiet as can be to anyone new.

Of course I had to do a layout about her loudness and every time I look at that yelling photo, I laugh.

Hope you are having a wonderful day!

Well I managed to finish off quite a few scrappy projects this past weekend but this one is by far my favourite!!! I used the gorgeous papers from Jillibean Soup and this layout literally came together in under an hour! I adore this picture of Sienna, she is always smiling or laughing - such a happy girl:-)

Mini Album

Just in case you've had enough of looking at my children...hee is a mini album I did as a gift for a friend of mine, of her beautiful girls! I mixed up a chipboard album and an acrylic album from CTMH.

Couple of cards

I love holidays but I now feel so terribly behind! Today I finally caught up with the laundry and house cleaning....ya, I know, I had a really fun day:-( It doesn't help that as soon as I got home I raced out the door again to go scrapbooking. So now my scrap space is a disaster as I am trying to finish up projects and re-organize my stuff. Ugh.

I bought the apron lace fiskars punch when I was in Phoenix since my LSS stores don't have it and I just HAD to play with it! Here are a couple of cards I made while trying out my punch!

Holidays are over.....

My family and I just spent the last week holidaying in Phoenix. It was a wonderful escape from the cold temperatures here and now it seems that Spring has arrived while we were gone...HOORAY!! I am so excited to be back in my scrap room getting organized to start some scrappy projects!! I am off to a scrappy weekend with friends and I am so looking forward to creating and spending time chatting and laughing with friends! So have a wonderful weekend and hopefully I will have lots of scrappy goodness to share soon:-)
