Gratitude...something I should do everyday...I'm soo blessed in many areas of my life, but I tend to focus on the little details of what I need to get done. So...

Starting in November, I'm going to create a gratitude layout every day until Thanksgiving. Something small, maybe a tag or 4x6 or6x6 layout of something I have to be grateful for. Then on Thanksgiving I'll share it with my family.

Interested in joining me...Check out the Scrapperie for details. I should have the details up in the next week or so.

I'm grateful for my friends that read my blog!!!

New magazine blog

Ok...So with the CK scandal...I bring this topic up again. Wouldn't it be great to have a magazine (or maybe just a blog that is updated daily) about real scrapbookers creating real pages! Wouldn't it be cool to see a bunch of NEW designers hand picked by the editors of the mag/blog (no fake contests here) writing and designing about questions you have. Like:
  • HELP! I have 60 photos for this event. How do I scrap this?
  • HELP! I have this beautiful photo...but the background is awful...Can it be fixed?
  • How do I use this latest tool? Is it worth the cost?
  • Etc...

So, leave a comment with a question, suggestion, or whatever. I want to hear from you. I'm thinking of just running with this!!! But, I'm an engineer by training, not a writer -- So I'll need help. Let me know what you think and if you are in!!

Scrapperie -- Social Butterfly

I had a blast designing for the Scrapperie. The kit is incredible! I created 3 one page layouts, 2 cards and a KELLY mini book. PLUS...I have enought paper and embellishments for at least 3 more 2 page layouts!!! Incredible! I have to say this layout is my favorite:
Journalling reads:
Mom: I love you, Baby
Kelly: I'm not a baby, I'm 4!
Mom: Well, you'll always be my Baby, Punkin, and Honey!
Kelly: Just don't call me Baby...I'm 4!
Mom: Ok, I'll try.
2 days later, Kelly: Mom, you can still call me Baby!

ScrapPink layouts

Scrap Pink...What an incredible event. I had soo much fun! Here are the layouts I got done. I know not many, but I didn't go to get a lot done. I went to support the cause and socialize with my scrappy friends because this crop is most likely the last one I do. We will be moving soon (hopefully...keep your fingers crossed). I will miss everyone!

Here is a picture of the loot I won! I made a $100 dollar donation which converted into raffle tickets! It was a lot of fun. The store collected over $2500 for the breast cancer fund!
