Happy Days....

It's always a good day when I find some time to scrap. Over the past week or so, I've gotten to do quite a few LO's. It takes me a while because I have to do a little here and there as time and Mikey permits, but at least I get some done! Here's a few I've done lately :)

A Layout for a challenge

This is for Sneaky. We had choices of stuff we had to do on our LO. I chose to use 6 patterened papers and one solid, all chipboard embellies and ribbon, a 5x7 picture, and lyrics from a song. I used the Steven Curtis Chapman "Miracle of the Moment".

A Layout

I can never think of a title for my blog entries! LOL Anyway, here's a LO I started working on yesterday and finished up today. It was a lift off of 2 Peas. I don't really consider it a "lift" because I never use the same papers and exact embellishments, but I like to copy "placement" of stuff which is what draws me to a LO...not always what was used on it. The colors on this one were really nice too, so I tried to stay with the same reds, blues, yellows...I liked the brightness of it. I'm pretty happy with it except for maybe where I put the "moments", but I didn't have any other letters I wanted to use so it kind of bugs me that it overlaps on my head in the pic! I guess I should have picked out my title letters first and then I could have rearranged something. Oh well!! I'm still pretty happy with it. TFL :)

Just a few recent things

I finally got a good pic of that other BOM page I did and also added another one. The second one was for a challenge on our secret group. We had to use "white space" and add something of a "surprise". I used a pic I had taken for Miguel for Valentine's Day. I took a few, but this was one that I liked the best. My friend Cass edited it for me so that the only thing in color was my pink bra :) BTW, I gave Miguel those pics and he just LOOOOVED them!! :) Very flattering to know my baby still thinks I'm a HOTTIE :) Oh, and I did a LO of Mikey with his "Mr. Bear". I love the way it came out! Hmmm...not much else going on. Maybe I'll get some scrapping done later tonight or tomorrow. Night!

Well, it seems that blogger isn't letting me upload right now for some reason, so I'll have to try later!

Some random stuff....

I haven't updated in a while...oops! Sometimes it feels like I'm just going from one thing to another and never really get a chance to sit down and write here. By the end of the night, if I do get the chance to sit down, I'm just too tired to think and write!

So, I made another Valentine's Day card. This one was for my bestest friend Lori, who lives in Pennsylvania. I mailed it out to her on Saturday, so hopefully she'll get it in time for Valentine's Day.

Oh, I got one of those TALL bookshelves for my scraproom. I had looked a couple of weeks back at Wal Mart and they had the slot for them, but they were all out! I went back this past weekend and there was ONE...YAY! I snagged it up right away! So I moved stuff around in my room yet AGAIN...LOL...but now I was able to get my Cricut and Sizzix on top of a table. I think it looks a whole lot better and a bit spacier. I also got this wrought iron thing that I don't know exactly what it was intended for, but it works PERFECTLY for my ribbons! I also worked on a LO last night for a challenge on our secret scrap group. We had to use nothing but our "old" stash. I'm pretty happy with the way it came out. I usually don't do this type of LO very well, but I liked it. I think I'm going to get a nice frame for it and give it to my mom for Mother's Day. Oh and I did another page in my BOM, but I need to take a better pic of it. Well, that's pretty much it for now!

Some more Valentine cards and another page for my BOM

Here are my last two Valentine cards. These are for the kids. The one with the monkey is for Mikey of course! LOL The page for my BOM was done for a challenge on our secret scrapbook site. We had to do a LO about something we love and not use the traditional Valentine colors. That's all for now :)
