Some Goodies and some LO's

So we had to cut tonight's crop a little short because Nick wasn't feeling well and Tammy had to go home, but we still got a little bit of cropping and a bit of shopping done too of course!!We also made a new friend, Barbara...Hi, Barbara :) She did an awesome LO of her daughter playing soccer that me and Tammy just loved!! I did this LO there and am pretty happy with the way it turned out! It was a scraplift of Ali's "Backseat Driver" on :)

I started this second LO right before we had to leave so I came home and finished it. I am really liking this one too!

Here's a pic of the goodies I got. I also got one of those yummy cans of Crate chipboard letters but forgot to put it in the pic :(

After Tammy dropped me off at home, me and Miguel went and had dinner with some friends and we got to come home and spend some time together minus the Monkey!! (thanks to my mommy!)So all in all, it was a good night :) But it's two thirty in the morning and I should try to get some good sleep while I can. Mikey will be back tomorrow and back in the middle of the bed!! So good night!!

A Pressie From Australia and more goodies :)

I just HAD to say "pressie" because that is what Janey calls it and I just love it!! LOL :) I got these awesome bags of chipboard from my new friend Janey who lives all the way in Australia!! Thank you so much, Janey!!! I can't wait to use them!!

Me and Tammy also went to HL today and did some minor damage on their half off sale. I got these yummy Autumn Leaves stamps that Tammy and my sis already had and I just LOVED so I had to snatch them up! I also got some Doodlebug stickers, some MM alpha rubs, a Daisy D's sheet of rubs, and two great finds in paper: the Halfway Cafe line from Cosmo Cricket and this cool pack of Bazzill...LOVE them!! Oh, I also found this cute sign on my way out and just HAD to have it even if it wasn't on sale...LOL!

Tomorrow night, Tammy and I are cropping at 911...hope they still have some of their new goodies left!! After that, I promise I will be good on my spending :P

I've been tagged by Tammy

I have to list seven random things about me. I will try :)

1. I hate any CREAMY or WHITE food...don't like milk, eggs, mayonaisse, cool whip, ranch get the picture..don't know why either. ALTHOUGH I will eat creamy if it's chocolate!! LOL

2. I took two naps today...a two hour one and then a FOUR hour one with Mikey. Didn't get much sleep last night w/all that scary rain!

3. We don't wear our shoes in the house....I'm a big germaphobe!!

4. I can't leave the house unless it's in some kind of order...yes, I also have OCD!! LOL

5. I don't know how to swim!

6. I think entirely TOO much...and live inside my head most of the time.

7. I can NOT live w/out music!

BTW, today is day three back on the treadmill. Did my 2.5 miles, but only ran three minutes straight then two. It's going to be harder than I thought to get back where I was :( But I'm not giving up!!

So it has been a few days since I got to do anything "scrappy". I was itching to do SOMETHING! This is what I came up with.

I bought this Flirtini paper at 911 so long ago. I put it away and then just forgot about it! I'm trying to use up some of my old stash. I need to come up with a way to keep my newer products up front so that I don't forget them and have them become outdated. This LO is pretty simple, but I like it. And at least I got to spend SOME time scrapping today. I needed it!!
So, yesterday, I FINALLY got back on the treadmill. After having to stop a few times to take stuff out from under the belt (a book of Mikey's) and from the MOTOR ( a sticker Mikey pulled off the treadmill and obviously stuck in there)! It kept making this HORRIBLE whining noise....that's how I found the stuff in there!! After that, I was able to run five minutes straight right off the bat...was kind of happy about that, but sad that I had already gotten so far before (up to 13 minutes straight..almost a full mile). I hope it doesn't take me long to get back to where I was. I did a total of 2.5 miles in 25 minutes. I ran the last three again, but those three minutes were HARD!! My ultimately RUN two miles straight in the least amount of time...maybe 20 minutes to start with and then hopefully I can do it faster. I really hope I stick to it longer than two months this time. I want to make it a part of my daily routine. Wish me luck!! :)

I finally got the chance to work on that LO I wanted to with my stamps and Zigs. I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out. I used some pics of Mikey I took just yesterday. I need to get some more photo paper and color ink for my printer...running low :( I guess I'll only be able to do more scrapping if I use my 4x6 sheets of photo paper so all my pics will have to be smaller than I normally use. Hmm...I'll have to work with it I guess until I can get to Office Depot. Anyway, not much exciting going on here. Lij is sick...again..throat and ear infection. Mikey is...well, Mikey and I am going a bit stir crazy since it's Wednesday and Miguel hasn't been home early all week :( Can't wait for the weekend.

Some pics to share

I took some pics of the other pages I made for the little book I'm making my mother for Mother's Day.

And here is my card for this week. It's about my mother.

And here's a little something I made using a 12x12 sheet of the new Imagination Project Circus Rose Playlist pp (My Top Ten). I cut the little cards out, mounted them on chipboard, then cut them out. I covered the backs with AC papers. The little cards have differnt things like "My Top Ten Moments", "My Favorite Friends" ect.

Happy Mail Day

I haven't done much but clean today, but I was happy to get these in the mail from I have been looking for these stamps forever and everyone was always OUT OF STOCK!! I got an email from when they got more in and I JUMPED on them! I can't wait to use them. I think I'll do a LO using only stamps and my new Zigs to color them in! Oh, I also have to post the new pages I did at Tammy's on Sunday for my mom's book. And I'm also going to try to do my Week 15 card later tonight. Mikey hasn't napped much today so maybe he'll go down early and stay down and I can have a little relaxing, scrappy "me" time :)

Ebay Goodies..

I forgot to post a pic of these yummy Zigs I got from ebay a couple of days ago. I figured I could use them to color in those cool AL alpha stamps I just got or to doodle with, ect.

I also found this cute ad in one of my issues of CK and thought it was so true and funny so I framed it on my wall in my scraproom :)

A LO and my week 14 card...

Here's a LO I did a few days ago with my new Autumn Leaves alpha stamps that I am just LOVING!! It's very simple, but I like it! The pic of the kids up against that wall in our backyard made me think of some kind of ad for like Gap kids or something. I love that Mikey is doing "his own thing" which made me come up with that title. I used a pic of birds on our feeder for my card for this week. TFL :)

Inspired by Janey...

Per Janey's challenge to get us all to make a little book like the one she did about her "Scrap Friends", I almost finished mine up today. I still need to add the journaling or whatever I decide will go on the page opposing the pics and I need a pic, Janey or if you want, I will just use the one I already have. I don't think my book is nearly as good as Janey's :( but I like it well enough!! LOL

A Trip to HL

Me and Tammy took a trip to Hobby Lobby today because the papers were half off! I only got 8 of the 8.5x11 papers, some Autumn Leaves stamps I saw on 2 Peas that I wanted, and some stuff from the Easter clearance section which was 50% off: some neat little wooden flower frames that I'm going to alter and put somewhere in my scraproom and some green felt ric rac. Happy shopping day :)

Good Morning to me...NOT!!!

Okay, so aside from not EVER getting a good night's sleep because of Mikey being in the middle and squirming and waking up every TWO hours, I am RUDELY awakened this morning by the whining of Mikey and Elijah at about 9:00 a.m. So instead of waking up SLOWLY like I prefer and laying in bed for a while before I actually get OUT of bed...I had to jump out of bed and start my day with yelling and cleaning up. I go into Elijah's room where he and Mikey have ALL the blankets on the floor trying to make a "fort" which would MAYBE be okay if Elijah wasn't trying to use the drawer to MY desk in his room to hold it. I have REPEATEDLY told him not to do this or he will break my drawer. Well....he broke it!! So while I had him cleaning up his room, I noticed that his Game Cube stuff was out...when it shouldn't be because he is grounded from it until next report card for having an F in Social Studies!! Don't get me started on that!! So when I ask him why it's there, he goes on and on and on about how he DOESN'T know. I KNOW this kid is lying to me which is making me SO angry. He FINALLY admits that he was playing it while I was still asleep this morning!! I'm telling you....he is working my LAST nerve! He has gotten the VERY bad habit of repeatedly lying to me to avoid getting into trouble, but as I explained to him. He needs to be responsible for his own actions and deal with the consequences from the start because lying to me is only going to get him into MORE trouble and I am not going to believe he is telling me the truth if he is always lying just like "The Girl Who Cried Wolf". Anyway, right now I have him cleaing his room from top to bottom and he will be doing that or reading ALLLLLL day!!!!
On a much happier note....LOL I am so happy that I got to talk to my GOOOOOD friend Lori who lives in PA last night! I hadn't talked to her in FOREVER and we had ALOT of catching up to do!! I always have such a great time talking to her and we always laugh SOO much!! She is such a nut and I just love her to death!!! :)I always feel happy when I get off the phone with her :)
After hearing about Janey's all night scrapping party night before last...I decided to pull my own little semi-all nighter and made this for my scraproom.

I put it in this frame and I am LOVING the way it looks!!!

Here's a pic of where it hangs in my scraproom :)

Oh and here is a pic for Janey. This was my room and table while I was working last night. I am SOOO's not a good thing...really, it isn''s like a CURSE! Sometimes I wish I wasn't so clean and maybe I'd have more time to do other stuff if I wasn't always so concerned about cleaning up! Yes, it's my downfall :( LOL

Okay, that is all for today. I think I will head downstairs and face my day!! LOL Maybe I'll get to do some more scrapping later :)

I got more pages done...

So, here's a few more pages in the book I'm making my mom. I have about three or four more to do to finish the book and then I have to decorate the little purse that it goes in. I'll post pics of that when I'm done.

More goodies to look at...

I got some more goodies in the mail today. Some 7 Gypsies stamps and some HS journaling spots I ordered from KT Crafts. They have VERY low shipping! I think it was less than two dollars for my stuff!

Here is my card for Week 13 "What is on your mind?"

Here are some more pages from the book I'm making for my mom.

Something I'm working on....

Tammy gave me this yummy 7 Gypsies cb purse and accordian book (thanks Tammy :))and I decided to fix it up and give it to my mom for Mother's Day. I'm using all Daisy D's papers....trying to use up some of my old stash. Here's what I have so far!

Some Goodies!!

Here are some things I ordered from Rocky Mountain Hobbies. I had originally ordered from them ONLY because they had the Autumn Leaves Freestlye alphabet stamps I have been wanting FOREVER! But as it turned out, they were OUT OF STOCK even though it had NOT said that when I placed my order! I was pretty mad! OH and on top of that, they left out one 12x12 sheet I had ordered. I emailed them but have NOT gotten a response. I don't think I will be ordering from them again. Here are my goodies!
