Tonsils + a layout

sorry i haven't been visiting, i love to visit blogs when i have my coffee in the morning but i got my tonsils out last thursday and the road to recovery has been a bit longer than i thought. i guess i am not 20 anymore, LOL! this morning was really rough, the mornings really are painful and my stomach isn't holding up to the pain meds anyore since i am not eating a lot. i did eat eggs yesterday! woot woot!

but i am glad that there will be no more strep in my life. i don't remember what it feels like to be healthy, really. since i had it pretty much since november.

for those of you who have called TAHNK YOU! i will call tomorrow when my voice {may} sound a bit normal. LOL!

this is not a pity party. i did scrap a bit today! it felt nice. it is GORGEOUS here today, so i sat outside with the dogs a bit and then thought to myself, "self, get your butt in there and do something!" so i did ;) and i am excited for this weekend since their seems to be a lot going on. GCD studios is having a blog party and CMK is having a spring fling so that is where you will find me.
i dug into my March CMK kit.

i used my Mamosa Glimmer mist on the twill from SavvyNSassy {did i mention i get all my ribbon from there???} and the cb piece.

Pink Paislee Fascinating Collection

I got to work with the GORGEOUS Pink Paislee Fascinating Collection from Serendipity Scrapbooks this month. Check out my review on them here on the blog.

I also got to use The Crafter's Workshop Posie Template. I used it on this tag as a stencil and to place where I was going to hand stitch.

Here are a few more layouts and a card...TFL!

do you ever think of YOUR future?
your goals...what you want...not just scrap memories all the time?

i definitely think it is important that we don't forget about ourselves. we get caught up in being moms, wives, sisters, friends and all the other hats we wear...don't forget about YOU.

check out this blog. it will motivate you.

check out the tutorial i did for this tag here...i am giving one away! ;0 ;) ;} i busted out {shocker} my color washes and glimmer mists!!!

weekend, baby!

too bad i am working 9-4 tomorrow, LOL! then it is off to motorcross racing and some dinner...then sunday....a shower at a friends in the town where i grew up and moving my grandma to the alzheimers unit...

{sigh} just a day in the life.... ;)

Here is a layout i did for the Basic Grey fabric contest. I couldn't resist! these are goodies from the January CMK kit.

these are two of my BEST friends in the world...Jess & Stacy...

I cut the different shaped edges on the paper and layered it like trim. I also added my oh so favorite Glimmer Mists that I got a SavvyNSassy to the fabric. guess it's kinda hard to tell...

OH! and there is a give-a-way over @ GCD Studios!!!!!!!!!!!! How could i have almost forgotten that!?

So who has had the chance to play with some of the new MME Bloom & Grow or Penny Lane? I did, I did! pick me, pick me, LOL!

I got all of mine from HSS, Sharon ordered every single snippet of it. I am not normally a frame kinda girl with diecuts but i couldn't resist these. And MME has the best diecuts. OH! and if you are a Cricut user, you should check out HSS b/c she always has the latest and greatest cartridges and preorders with THE BEST prices out there.

these projects are mostly Bloom & Grow and I added some Dream Street Rubons here.

I thought this would make a cute little gift set. When i saw this paper, it immediately reminded me of butterflies.

and this layout cracks me up...check out this shirt....this is one of many photos i have of henry in this! LOL! but this is a layout about how he picks up every teeny tiny piece of paper, crumbs, rocks...whatever is on the floor! it is too funny...i guess i better yell at the scrubster to vacuum more! ;) This is a mix of MME and Dream Street goodies...

wow! march already?

I don't know where the time has gone...things have been cRaZy...but i love it when life is like that for me...i just get all jazzed up on the craziness. the stress i don't like so much but you learn to deal with it in a good way. i think a lot of working mom's feel that way too but enjoy what i do and that makes it worth it. i believe in these kids. when we stop believing in them, then we are in trouble, not them.

speaking of kids....who wants to see the cutest 1 year old? well, he was only 2 days old in the first one and 3 mos old in the second... ;)

I love these KPertiet Coded digi stamps. I use them on my photos alllllll the time!

some hidden journaling .... i remember writing this journaling at owen's tball game when the one mom next to me was on her phone yelling at her husband b/c he missed the game. hmmm?

on this one i used fabric and batting. i stuffed the fabric and then stitched the photos on top of the "pillow" ....and sock monkeys...need i say more??????

I also used some glimmer mist on these tickets...

besides the digi stuff, i got these goodies at serendipity scrapbooks and hss.
