Berry Merry

This card is soooooo stinkin' easy!  I have decided that this is my official Christmas card for this year.  I hate to tell you all that and ruin the surprise, but you would've figured it out in about a month and a half anyway, and I'm not that good with keeping secrets, either.  This is using a new set , Berry Merry, and the Christmas pattern paper both from the Holiday Mini.  The paper is gorgeous!  This particular pattern actually has a kind of shimmer to it.  There is another pattern that is flocked!  Soooo cool!  This is also using the new ornament punch, which I didn't really want to get, but now I'm so glad I did.  I should know by now that SU's punches are worth every penny!

The third card I made for me and Tiffany's Christmas Card workshop using the Shellebrate stamp set which is also in the Idea Book & Catalog.  Non-traditional Christmas colors, I know, but this is a non-traditional stamp set, too!  I made my Mom's Christmas cards with this set last year and loved them!  I don't think this set gets enough attention!  LOL!  I love how the Real Red just pops off the card when paired with the Tempting Turquois and Taken With Teal.  TFL!

Big On Christmas

Another card I made for the Christmas Card Event using Big On Christmas.  This set is in the Idea Book & Catalog.  I case'd this from a card on Splitcoaststampers.  TFL!

Just Beclause

Here's one of the cards that I did for me and Tiffany's Christmas Card Event a couple of weekends ago.  This set, Just Beclause, is in the Stampin' Up Holiday Mini catalog, so if you like it, get it!  It'll be gone for good come January.  I used watercolor pencils and the aquapainter for the image, which was fun!  I hadn't used the pencils before!  The pencils with the aquapainter gives a cool watercolor effect.

Still lovin' it!

Yes, MDS is still kickin' my butt it's so stinkin' cool!  Sat down with my huge binder of PageMaps sketches and within 30 min have a layout completed. 

I have to tell you all, it may look like I'm on the internet everyday posting my stuff, but, really, I'm not.  I get in what i can and have blogger schedule my posts for me.  I'm currently having horrible horrible connection problems with my internet for the last month.  My internet provider has said that they have done everything possible.  All that's left is to come and pick up the equipment and call it quits.  I wonder why for the last year and a half we've had no problems and then all of a sudden for the last month everything has gone to hell?!?!?!  So, we are currently trying to decide what to do.  Do we keep our provider and relish in the few moments we have a connection or just drop it altogether?  We live out in BFE, so our choices are extremely limited.  I was on hold for 56 min (YES, 56 MINUTES!!) with Verizon yesterday and still didn't talk to anyone.  PSCI is coming out in the next couple of weeks to see if they can pick up a signal, for which I'm not holding my breath for.  So, anyway, I get on when I can, but that's not very often.  If you don't hear from me, this is why.  I try to update my blog and post an update on facebook when I can.  Hopefully this will be resolved in a month or so.

Total Divas

Here's my second attempt at a digi layout using Stampin' Up's My Digital Studio! Tiffany helped me with a few edits and then gave me the idea to make 2 pics b&w and one color! Isn't it cool?!?!? I love MDS!!! I still can't belive I just said that! ;)

My first digi layout!!

Well, I've resisted long enough, I guess.  When Stampin' Up came out with their version of digi scrapbooking, I was kinda excited.  Then, I started seeing stuff done with it and what all it could do.  So, I got it.  Played with it this weekend and let me tell ya, IT'S AWESOME!!!  I'm totally lovin' it.  And, I tried really hard not to.  I'm a total paper, scissors, and glue type of gal.  But, this rocks.  Here's my very first layout.  Now, bear with me.  I'm still new to it, so I know there's still alot to learn.  But, I'm pretty proud of it, nonetheless.  I showed the girls and McKenna said "that looks like something you would scrapbook for real!".  That's enough of a compliment for me! :)

Trinity Treehouse 2005

Another layout done with the BYOM October kit!  These pictures are of McKenna and her preschool class back in 2005!!  Yeah, I'm not caught up.  And I don't scrap in order, either.  I just scrap what I feel like at the moment! 

Don't worry, I didn't put any of the classmates names on here....mainly because I don't remember them and I never got around to writing them down 4 years ago.  Shame on me, I know.  In fact, I mention that in the journaling.  I hope McKenna isn't too mad at me when she gets older!  LOL!! 

I can't believe how small she looks in these pictures.  And, how incredibly white her teeth are in the picture, which is something we all picked up on after I showed off the layout to the family!  We all had a pretty good laugh about it.

Anyway, TFL!

Another layout from the October kit!

Pictures are from Spring Break 2007 when Aunt Jeanne met us for the week in Gatlinburg, TN.  Let me tell ya, she is one brave woman!  She let McKenna and Micah just go to town fixing her hair and putting on her makeup this particular morning.  But, the girls did do a pretty good job on her, I must say. 

Everything on here is from the October kit, except I added my own ribbon.

October '09 Bring Your Own Memories kit!

My first layout done with the awesome October kit from BYOM!  I saw a version of this tree in one of the scrapbook magazines and was just waiting for an excuse to try it.  Along with that cute little bird in the tree, made entirely of punches, by the way!  Well, except for the little googly eyes, of course! 

Picture of Mara from Easter this year.

A new card to share!

I've had a great response on my stamp sets for sale and even met a great person through it, too (Hi, Susan!)!  How awesome of a world we are living in...the beauty of the internet!  I still have the stamp sets for sale right now because I can't figure out my darn PayPal account!  LOL!!  But, as soon as I do, that's where they are headed. 

Yesterday afternoon after talking to Nicole on the phone asking me for scraproom organizational help, I decided to tackle the job of cleaning up my mess of a "closet" (yes, we all refer to my teeny tiny scrapbook room as a closet).  I was in there for hours!  I purged some stuff, moved things around and just made it all around a little more tidier.  Ahhhh, peace. 

Anyway, here's a new card to share!  This was made from a Level 3 hostess set from Stampin' Up and the sentiment is from Thoughts and Prayers.  TFL!
