An Award!

Thank you, Tiffany, for the award!

The Liebster Blog Award is given to bring new blogs to light. It's a great way to share blogs that might not otherwise be seen or ones you want to share with others.

As a recipient of this award I must share the love and pay it forward by:

1-Creating a post where I blog about the Liebster award & reveal my 3-5 blog picks
2-Let the honorees know that I selected them
3-Copy & paste the blog award on my blog

Now I have the huge task of narrowing down my favorite blogs that I love to visit and gain inspiration from so I can share them with you.

New blogs that you must visit are...


And, the last layout I created at Crop for the Cure.  I was getting really tired by this point (12 hours of scrappin', chattin', and eatin'!!), so this isn't my most favorite-est layout, but it's not the worst I've ever done.  I used the SAB digi stamp set called Bliss, which I think is pretty, but I just don't know how to use it yet!

Halloween 2010

Now, this was awesome.  I created one layout featuring Mara in her costume.  I wanted to make a layout featuring McKenna and Micah in their costumes as well, but didn't feel like coming up with 2 more Halloween layouts using almost the exact same pics (that would be my ADHD kickin' in! LOL!).  Seeing the same pics and coming up with 2 more layouts that I actually liked as much as I liked the first one....I shudder at the thought. 

So, Tiffany showed me how to "insert duplicate page".  Whoa!  Who'da thought that 3 little words would be such a H-U-G-E timesaver?!?!  I duplicated this exact page, deleted a couple of pics and inserted  a couple of new ones and VOILA!  This is what ya get:

And, "insert duplicate page" again.....

I know!  Too flippin' COOL, huh?!?!?!  Sorry, just one more reason you gotta love MDS!!!

Candy Dreams

And yet another color combo you're not likely to see on the Color Coach!  Once again, just using color that were in the girls' costumes for this. 

Last summer, in between play practice for Willy Wonka, McKenna and some friends were preparing for the Talent Show at the annual Herbsfest in a neighboring town.  These girls worked their tails off with not as much parental involvement as one might think to pull off!  Everything was their ideas from the music, dance moves, costumes and props.  Their Grand Prize was well deserved!  I was so proud of them!

Willy Wonka

These pics of McKenna just crack me up!  Always a little ham.  I used different DSP's to match her costume.  You will definitely not see this color combo on the Color Coach! LOL!  

These are the only pictures I have of McKenna in her debut play last summer as cameras weren't allowed during the performance.  Her summer was so busy with play practice, but I think she loved every minute of it and all the attention she got out of it!  Her official role was Oompa Loompa #7 and she had a really small speaking part and she got to be in the scene where Mike TV gets shrunk.

Home Remedy

Ok, I know the picture on here is pretty darn crappy.  But, really, it's the story that's funny the picture is just there to support the journaling.  Since I don't journal very often, layouts like this don't come around all the time, so bear with the horrible photo.  

That would be a picture of my middle daughter eating supper one evening with a paper bag over her head.  She wore that bag on her head intermittently for a couple of weeks in December....as the stomach flu hit our house pretty heavy.  And, amazingly enough, she came out of it completely unscathed.  Not quite sure how that happened, but it has to be the bag, right?!  

Thanks to my girly, Heather, for the title!  And, this layout was created using My Sweet Pea DSP and embellishments.  Any other questions about it, email me! :-)

I know, if I were really good, I'd be able to spout off everything I used on here.  Well, let's face it, I pretty much suck at that!  LOL!  If you really, absolutely, positively need to know what I used on here, just shoot me an email and I'll try and figure it out and let you know exactly what I used.  I will say that I'm pretty sure the font on here is a font I downloaded for free from the internet.  Where?  I have no idea.  Name of the font?  No freaking way am I going to go thru all my fonts and try to answer that question!  Sorry, folks, you'll just have to try and go to sleep tonite not knowing that little bit of info! ;) 

Sidenote...these pics were taken with my phone!  As was the photos in the layout posted on Tuesday titled "8 inches!!"  Sometimes you just never know when pics on your phone will come in handy!

Happy St. Patrick's Day!

Happy St. Patrick's Day, fellow peeps!  

This is, by far, my most favorite card I've created in awhile!  

I made this using the Full Heart Punch and then embossing it with the square lattice embossing folder to mimic the clover on the stamp!  Simple card.  Couple layers of paper, the scallop eyelet border punch, a cute little bow and voila!  

I used the single stamp Lucky Shamrock in the Occasions Mini.

8 inches!!

March 5 myself and several other girlfriends head out for Evansville for Crop for the Cure, a scrapbooking crop to benefit the Susan G. Komen foundation.  We've all been going together for the last several years and always have a fantastic time!  Last year I got the bright idea to only pack my laptop to use My Digital Studio and my sketch book instead of half of my scraproom and end up not using half of what I brought or need something I didn't bring!  It worked out beautifully, so I did the same thing this year, as well.  I got 9 layouts done!!!  And, I'll be showing those off this month, so be sure to check back often.  

I know I've said this before.....but I just can't get enough of MDS!!!  I never thought I'd ever say that I LOVE DIGITAL SCRAPBOOKING!!!  I hope you enjoy my creations and inspire you to try it out if you have yet to delve into the digital world!

A quick and easy card I made up for the make-n-take for a workshop last month using the stamp set Clearly For You in the Occasions Mini (which I got for FREE at Leadership in January, btw!)  

We used a square punch, color spritzer, Elegant Soiree DSP, Decorative Label XL punch (Occasions Mini), and the Framed Tulips embossing folder for the Big Shot.

{friend to friend}

A card I made for a workshop back in February using the DSP from the SAB catalog called Ice Cream Parlor + the matching ribbon and buttons!!  I used a cute little stamp from the set I LOVE called Teeny Tiny Wishes.  Modern Label and Word Window punches.

Happy Blogoversary to me!!!

Today is my BLOGOVERSARY!!  5 years ago today I created Scrap Happy!  

Thanks, Teena, for the blogoversary wishes!  If it hadn't been for your comment, I wouldn't have even realized it! LOL!!

Happy Birthday

Another birthday card....I'm always needing birthday cards.  I saw this one on Stampin' Connection and I forgot who originally made this...I'm sorry!  Her card was actually a long skinny card and I changed it up to be a regular size card.  I used an embossing folder for the Big Shot and the stamp set from the Occasions Mini called Create A Cupcake and the matching punch (YES, MATCHING PUNCH!!) called Build A Cupcake.  Sentiment from the Level 2 Hostess set in the Occasions Mini called Something to Celebrate.

It's Your Birthday!

Quick birthday card I whipped up using the Occasions Mini stamp set called Take A Spin and DSP from the SAB catalog called Ice Cream Parlor and a cute little Glimmer Brad in the middle!

For You

This was a 3D project I made for a workshop last month to show off the new Petal Cone die for the Big Shot!  I love this die!  I have made this and an adorable little "Welcome" pennant (pics to come of that later, of course!)  I also used the stamp set from SAB called Punch Bunch and the Hostess set from the Occasions Mini called Something To Celebrate.  And a cute little bling to finish it off!
