I added the finishing touches yesterday and now it’s all done. Hope you let me know what you think. 🙂

This is my niece, Violet. She’s a great subject to scrapbook. Can’t wait to meet her. I love her already. 🙂 Okay, those are some of my handmade Prima like roses and since I can’t get the cool Prima wired sprays I made some to accent these. I used Flower Soft wires and inked them, then made them curly. Want to see some details?

Items used: Bo Bunny pattern papers; Cor’dinations and Prism cardstock; Jenny Baldwin tag; Heidi Swapp and dollar store bling; Flower Soft wires; Smooch, Versa Color, and Glimmer Mist inks; Basic Grey tag; Stickles; Martha Stewart punches; and Tombow, Glossy Accents, and Glue Dots adhesives.

I can’t wait to share my newest layout! I just love how it’s turning out. I just need to find my Glue Dots; I need more. lol Yeah, I know, just buy some stock in them already. Anyway, I know I have a full pack somewhere… But I guess I really should go to bed first. 😛 It is 3 am after all. But I was creating! What can I say, after a boring evening of cleaning house inspiration struck! Okay, will be sharing tomorrow.

I can’t wait! Can you?

Hello Cyber World!

So today, I’m cruising some blogs, and as I’m looking at bits and pieces and idea hits me. While cropping with some friends from Page Break (love you guys! The people, sadly the store is closed.) Nic wanted some help with a bit of bling. You know the kind, premade bling flourishes. Well, we all also know that once you take them off the backing they can be really hard to put down on you layout. So, why not just cut them out (the backing is clear after all) and then using micro Glue Dots (love these, and I use so many Glue Dots that I sometimes think I should own part of the company by now. lol) glue them to your page. An added bonus? It’s much easier to weave them in and around other elements on your page this way.

Today, I’m also creating more of my Prima style roses for a layout I’m working on. And I need to take some photos, out side, but I think it’s going to rain today.

What else am I doing today? Packing up some books to send home with my mom in a couple weeks. Well, I’m going to trade her a bag of mine for a bag of hers. lol 🙂 Gotta love having more than 1 person in the family that reads the same stuff. And of course the mandatory job hunting too.  That’s about it.

Hoping to develop a couple photos tomorrow. My daughter and I went for a walk, to Sev’s (7 Eleven) for slurpees the other week. We took the “dangerous” way, the back alleys. Okay, not so dangerous as it was still daylight out. But back alleys have the best graffiti! We actually didn’t find any nice stuff where we walked that night but we did find some spots that made for cool backgrounds for photos. So, a little photo shot along the way, and a slurpee for the walk back. What better way to spend an evening with your teen? Also, want to do a page about my omelets. I think it’s quite funny that somebody who hates eggs likes omelets and I have an idea in my head that will be cute, funny cute. 🙂

Okay, I should get back to my to do list.

It’s been so windy. I would like to take some of my layouts out and photograph them but can’t because of the wind. I have a bunch that I want to post. I really like how they turned out. Even if I don’t have the photos in them yet. 😛

I’m hosting a 30 page challenge at Skrap n’ Chat. Need to use up some of my stash of scrapbooking supplies. Can’t wait to get started on that. But first I need to go through my stuff and re-organize it. 😛 Ugh! I think that’s a job and a half.

Since I really want to be scrapping and not cleaning, what am I doing? I’m on here chatting about scrapping. lol Well, I guess I’m not making a bigger mess this way.

Well, I should get to said cleaning. 😛
