So here are the other LOs I did at crop that I had taken bad pics of and two 6x12 LOs I did. The one of Miguel I did last night and the one of Mikey I did a while ago. I am really LOVING that size!! I had seen lots of ppl doing them and wanted to try them, just hadn't gotten around to it. Well, now I think I'm HOOKED! It just may be my new "thing" for a while! I also want to try going back to 8.5x11 for a while or at least just doing some LOs in that size. I was getting a little tired of just 12x12. Well, thanks for looking :)

So this month's crop night was a blast! We had a great turnout--nine of us! Lots of chatting, shopping and scrapping! Actually, not much shopping. If you can believe it, I only spent $12 and that was getting some of the new BG Infuse papers, letters, and diecuts. I hit my free $10 and got some alpha stickers...can never have too many of those! And that was it! So I managed to finish all six of the LOs I packed for the night and we even had two hours left in the crop! We had to leave early though because our ride (Adriana) was leaving. We still got alot done and then my sis and I just came home and scrapped until two a.m. Good times :) Some of the pics I took of my LOs are blurry, so I have to retake them and upload them later.

I really need to try to keep up with this more often and not just when I have LOs to post! I've been getting LOs ready and packed all day for Saturday's crop. I had most of them sketched out already, but still needed to pick papers, ect, but hadn't done it yet because I wasn't quite in the scrappy mood. Elijah has been here this week (back from being with his dad), so we've just been hanging out. I really like the way I set my tables up in my scraproom because now anytime that I'm in there, I have Lij and Mikey spend time with me in there. Lij will be drawing and Mikey will be coloring and sticking stickers all over the place and we will just talk and listen to KLove...my new fave radio station and talk and stuff...nice :) So I think I'll have some pretty good LOs to post after Saturday. We have a nice turnout this time....lots of fun people showing up....should be tons of fun...can't wait!! It's nice to get away and have some scrappy, girl time even if it's only once a month. I can live with that! Well, I just have a quick LO that I did tonight to post. All that sketching, packing up and such got me in the scrappy mood, so I just did this quick LO with a pic of the flowers Mal got me this past Valentine's Day. I used some Creative Imaginations scalloped paper scraps I had....I just LOVE that paper. I wish I had gotten more when 911 had them :( Oh well!! Take a peek at my LO and good night for now :)

I am so not good at keeping up with this! Not much has been going on here either so I don't feel like I have anything to write about! I should make stuff up!! LOL
Here are a few LO's I've done in the days since I last posted. I'm pretty happy with all of them.
A little update on my treadmill progress...still working on it every day. I don't know how, but my running consecutively thing has gone down the toilet because for whatever reason, I can't seem to get past three minutes now!! I don't know what that's about??!!?? Instead I started alternating running and walking and that (for now) seems to work out pretty good. I'll start off running two minutes, then walking two minutes then running then walking, ect. I have been doing roughly 2.3 miles a day and it had been taking me about 35 minutes to do it. Within the last two days, I have shaved five minutes off my time and have been doing it in only 30 minutes. Might not be a big deal, but a big accomplishment for me. That dress I have been wanting to fit in....fits me perfectly...except still a tiny big snug in the chest. Hmmm...I'll have to see what I can do about that. I'm very happy though because that thing wasn't fitting me good at all before I started with the whole treadmill thing. It's a size 10 which is my old size before I had Mikey. I will be soooo happy to be back in a size 10!!!
Anyway, here are the LO's.
This first one, I did for a challeng on sb.com that Pammy is hosting...the "Copy Yourself" challenge. We had to scraplift off of one of our own layouts. I used my "Things I've Learned" LO and came up with this one. I love the way it turned out and I just love this pic of Mikey on his new bike!
This was just a quick LO with a pic of Mikey and Lij. Love the way it looks in sepia.
This last one, I got the idea from the August/September issue of Memory Makers. It was from a LO on page 72. I used the same Creative Imaginations paper and pretty much the same placement of pic and papers, but changed the embellies up. I wonder if that's still considered a "scraplift"?? I am never sure about things like that. Anyway, that's all for now. Oh and if Lori gets to read this...."HELLO" :) :)

Well, Sheba is officially gone and while I am happy that I won't be having to clean up any more cat hair and can finally use our master bathroom again, I am very sad because I didn't want her to have to go. Damn my OCD!! I know it wasn't fair to her to be in that one room and that she is probably better off somewhere else. Still can't help but feel sad. We did have her for almost a year. I just have to try to not think about it.
Anyway, I did a couple more LO's. The one about my scraproom, I did yesterday. I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out. I used some new Daisy D's stuff I had gotten at 911 and some Kelli Panacci stuff I had gotten at HL. I was going to use it for my 5 Product challenge on my Yahoo group, but I went over on the products. So instead today, I did another LO using my Cosmo Cricket Halfway Cafe which I've had FOREVER and just opened today. I REALLY love the way that one turned out! I'm using that one for my 5 Product challenge. Since I'm supplying the prize, I can't win, but I thought I'd do it anyway.

Here are some new LO's I've done. I still need to catch up on my art journal cards...need to do four...gotta catch up again! Not much new is going on here. Today was my "cleaning day" so I spent most of the day just cleaning up! It took me an HOUR to clean up our bathroom of all the cat hair! I told Miguel that he needs to take Sheba somewhere tomorow. Take her back to PetSmart or something. I love her, but oh my Gosh, am I tired of cleaning up hair!! She has been shedding like crazy and the poor thing needs to get out of that bathroom! It's the best thing for her to go. Anyway, hopefully tomorrow I can have some more scrapping time and maybe get all my cards done!
This first LO was left over from last month's crop. It was the only LO I packed that I didn't get around to working on so I finished it up last week I think. Just hadn't uploaded it until tonight. Elijah really likes his skateboard that my sis got him. It's nice seeing him do something that requires physical activity and not just sitting around inside!
I was going to enter this second one in the Lucky 7 Contest, but didn't upload it to the computer in time! Oh well!! I was going for a simple look so I just did some frames and put the pic on top. I really like it! Got to use my Cosmo Cricket Dutch Girl that I got last week! Love that paper!!
I really love this last LO although it's kind of simple too! Miguel got Mikey this cute little tricycle yesterday and Mikey LOVED it! He even got the whole pedaling thing down all on his own!! I love the way the pic came out! I have some more cool pics of him on the bike that I will have to do other LO's with! Got to use my Dutch Girl here too!

Yes, I moved all my stuff around....AGAIN!! I can't help it! It's like a quest for the PERFECT set up! I think I really like this! I had always wanted to put my two big tables together to make one HUGE area kind of like having an island in the middle of the room, but I could never figure out HOW to do it or WHERE to put the tables. So today when Mikey took a nap, I started moving stuff around and came up with this! Unfortunately, Mikey woke up when I was like fifteen minutes into it and had stuff ALL OVER the place! I should have taken a picture of that. Dang! Didn't think to do it until now! So it probably took me longer to finish with Mikey running around than had I had the full two hours that he usually naps to do it in! Either way, it's done! And I am really loving it! I need to get myself a couple of GOOD stools with backs to sit at the tables if I want to sit. And FINALLY the tables are in PERFECT position so that the light overhead shines down right on the tables because before no matter where I stood to scrap, I always covered the light with my back! I also like the way most of my stuff is on that one wall now with the shelves and stuff. Not so much walking around looking for stuff now! Anyway, just thought I'd upload some pics to share :)
