Good time with great friends and a sparkly LO

Last night I got to go out to dinner and Karaoke with some pals from my mom's group. I sang Only in my Dream by Debbie Gibson and If I Ain't Got You by Alicia Keys. I'll never be on American Idol but I'm never the worst person in the bar and that's all that matters to me! lol
I finished another LO that I'm pretty proud of. I think becoming a member of the All Moments Remembered message board and cropping with Marilyn (melonscraps), Christina (inara) and Laura (tigardlilly) has really made me become a better scrapper. I'm not afraid to try new things and go with my own ideas anymore! Thanks gals! I have more LOs floating in my head right now than I ever have! I think I should start a sketch book so I don't forget about them. Yet another thing to add on the "to do" list. That list is way long people! LOL
So here she is!
The pics are not that great since I took them at night but oh well!
CS~ Stampin' Up
PP~ DCWV Nana's Nursery
CB letters~ the paper studio and MM garden party
Forgot to put a cute pic of the kidlet in my last post so now you get two!!

Playin' catch up again!!

I don't know why I find it so hard to keep my blog updated. It's not like it's really hard or something. Either way I'm sorry!

I actually completed a layout last week! I love it! It's the of the first layouts I have ever done that is totally my own design. Most of the time I scraplift at least some portion of my layouts and the others that were my own design I didn't love. This one I sooooo love!

I think this layout best represents my style. I don't know what this style is... but it's mine! ;)

I just spent Saturday night with some great scrappy chicks! Like always I didn't get much done. I did get a good start on a layout that I'm hoping to finish tonight. We shall see!

POTD (photo of the day)

So I'm hopping on the photo a day bandwagon! I had heard of people doing this last year and thought it was a wonderful idea. I had planned to start at the new year. Welllllll, let's just say I'm lazy and leave it at that. So true to my form, better late than never!
I'm gonna play a bit of catch up here.

Dilemma and new visitors!!

So I have a dilemma. Years ago my family threw a 70th birthday party for my Grammie. Our friend took photos for us and I was supposed to make a scrapbook of them. Well fast forward 5 years later and I still have the photos. I did do some pages but they are really bad. Here are a couple of the not too bad ones. Never mind! I just went to upload them and realized they are all terrible! So I am thinking about stating over. Do you think I should even bother? I mean it's been almost 5 years! :sigh: I think I will but not do it in 12x12 this time. Maybe on a smaller scale I can do a better job? Okay, okay, I'll share one so you can see how bad they are

Sorry the photos are so bad. It was late when I took them. Check out the use of the deco scissors!!! LOL Too funny! So a I have new visitors this week! Flat Marcia and Flat Kim are her to see the Portland metro area. Can't wait to take them down to the tulip fields!

I sent Flat Cini off last week but no word if she got there yet? We had a pretty good time. She didn't get to do anything big but she was very helpful when it came to picking out scrapping supplies! lol

Hope you all are having a great week! The weather finally cleared for a couple of days here. The poor trees are so confused! lol I can't wait for summer weather to get here!!!

I am doing the Photo Of The Day thing but I will probably only upload once a week. I'm just not very good at this blogging thing. :rolls eyes: Sorry! ;)

That's one handsome scrubby(scapbookers hubby) right there! ;)
