Shabby Chic Challenge

We had to do a shabby chic LO for this week's Sneaky Challenge and I just LOVED doing it! I don't know if it's "my thing" because alot of people have told me that my style is more clean and simple, but I think I can pretty much imitate any kind of style. Anyway, I really had fun with this challenge and am really loving the finished product! I took one of the older LOs out of one of the frames in my sb room and put this LO in there.

I also "redid" the LO with the pic of me and Miguel that I just loved SO much! I really wasn't happy with the way the first one came out. Even though I loved the colors and wanted to use something fun and bright for it, it just didn't come out looking like what I wanted. I think I had really high expectations for the LO since I just loved the pic so much...oh, the pressure! LOL Anyway, I am ALOT happier with the second try and I hung this LO in my scraproom too! I think these two LOs puts me at 32 for the year so far. That's all for now! TFL :)

BTW, there's no glare on the pic of me and Miguel...I think that was the flash while I was taking the LO pic!

I've been MIA for a while....

We ended up staying at my mom's over Spring Break and she doesn't have a computer....I was in MAJOR withdrawals! LOL I had my nephew with me since that Tuesday too, so with THREE kids, I had my hands full! The kids had fun though. That Tuesday, my sis and I had the kids with us while we did some shopping and then went back to her house to let the kids play some games on the Wii. On Friday, I took Lij and Matthew to the zoo. Boy, I did NOT know it was going to be that packed!! OMGosh, the line to get in to the zoo was INSANE!! I know that ppl start camping out that weekend to save their picnic spots for Easter Sunday, but I didn't know that many people would be wanting to get into the zoo. They had four seperate lines to buy tickets and we had to wait about 20 minutes before we got in. Once we did, it wasn't that bad....until we went into the little cafe they have there for lunch and the line there was just as long! We waited a while there too. It took us less time to eat than the time we stood in line!! We spent about three hours walking around and then we took the little train ride around the park too. The kids had a great time! I got some really good pics that I can't wait to scrap!

A Girly Page

I did this page for a friend of mine who is giving this to her cousin as a baby shower gift. It was fun working with pinks for a baby! I am really loving the way this came out! TFL :)

Am I Going Crazy??

I have done some pretty stupid things, SAID alot of things that make absolutely NO sense...even to me! LOL I'm convinced it's "mommy brain". I am constantly writing things down on lists I have up on the fridge: TO Do lists, GROCERY lists, STUFF TO PACK lists.... yet I STILL sometimes walk into a room and forget what I'm doing there or end up forgetting stuff at the grocery store, or spend the weekend at my mom's and forget something I really needed. Anyway, last night I am talking to my mom on the phone and sitting in the bathroom before I take a shower and she's telling me how the neighbor lady told her that she has just had a man break one of her windows and try to break into her house while she was there with her grandson. Fortunately, when the man saw that people where home, he left. But my mom says "and she was just about to get into the shower". I ALWAYS take the phone in the bathroom with me when I'm showering especially if the kids are with me so I'm sitting there looking around for the phone, making sure I brought it with me and I can't find it. I'm looking on the sink, in the towel basket, all the while talking to my mom ON THE PHONE!! HELLO??? Am I losing it?? I don't know WHAT I was thinking? And my mom is always afraid that she's getting Alzheimer's because stuff like this happens to her. Well, I'm only 36, so what is MY excuse?? LOL I need some sleep...I need my brain back...I need a vacation...I need SOMETHING!

ANYWAY, today I scrapped this cute little mini LO for a challenge on Sneaky. Sticking with the "blue" theme, we had to use something OLD, something NEW, something BORROWED and something BLUE. I was browsing my sis's BOS on 2 Peas and came across a really cute project that immediately inspired me to make this and I'm really LOVING the way it turned out. I put it on a shelf in my scraproom. I think maybe I'll try making one with a pic of me and Lij. That's all for's eleven and I should get to sleep. Thank God it's Friday tomorrow and I don't have to wake up at six a.m. for two days! YAY!!

Me and my sis were having a little cyber crop to motivate ourselves to scrap and this is the LO I came up with. Kind of simple and quick, but I really like it. And the pic is cute too and very the pic alot.

Twenty five and twenty six....

So my sis has been counting the LOs she's done this year so far, so I thought I would too. With these two, it brings me to 26 for the year so far. I don't really have a "goal", but I'm pretty sure I can reach at least 100 by the end of the year, if not more. Anyway, the first LO was for Sneaky and we had to do a monochromatic thing and use four different manufacturers patterned papers which was not a problem for me since I love layering papers. I've just never used all the same color. But I have to say, I really liked the way it came out and the blue with the black embellies worked really good together. We had to also only use embellies that started with the letters that spell BLUES and they could only be blue, white, black, silver or gold.
The second LO I started the other night when Adriana came over to scrap, but didn't finish it. It was a lift from one of my Memory Makers magazines...can't remember which one. The pic I took is a bit blurry, but I'm just too lazy to go take another!! LOL

And here's a cute pic I took of Mikey today. Over the weekend, I bought two twin sized flat sheets at Wal Mart for only $3 each to use as backdrops for pics of the kids, but so far Mikey has been my only subject and he hasn't been too cooperative. Maybe I should bribe him with some candy?? LOL

OH, and I got my hair cut again...I'm really loving the shorter look! And it's SO much easier to fix!
