LCOM Online Crop was a hit!!

I had a great time with this online crop...I wasn't able to finish all the challenges but I did get a few done.  Here's a few LO's I did for the crop!

This one was from "Colorful words" Challenge.  I used my preggo test from Ryan (not a new test...for those of you who were more babies for me unfortunatlty).  This is not the pic I wanted to use as the pic with the two pink lines was not printed...but you get the idea!

This one is from "Color it Krafty" & also for Simply Scrapping's week 2 Sketchy Saturday. 

This one is for "Follow Andrea's Fall Sketch", I used picture of Ryan's last Halloween.

And this one is for "That's just Spoooky" first little altered's a little plain, but I like it!

Well, that's all for now!  Stay tuned for LCOM's Card Sketch....I will posting a new sketch pretty soon!

I'm still working on the album...more to come!

LCOM Card Challenge - Check this out!!!

Here's Sketch #4, which was made by Rusha and the added extra challenge is to add some bling to your card!!! You can do it!

Check out the blog and see what beautiful creations the DT has come up with for this sketch!!

My First Mini!!

Here it is...the day has come, I decided to try my hand at a mini..I've only just started last night, but here is what I have done so far.  I'll keep posting pics of my progress as I get more done.

The mess begins..I wanted to watch TV while scrapping so I dragged
everything out into my kitchen.
Step 1 - I choose to use 6 (4x6) chipboard peices, then I painted
(Adirondack Dabber in Pitch Black) each ones edge in black.

Step 2 - I cut the PP (I eyeballed the measurments to a bit smaller than the chipboard). 
As for pp, I used "Recollection & some Bo Bunny papers.

That's it for now!!

Sunday = Lazy Day

Well, I haven't scrapped yet today, but will tonight once everyone is in bed.

Today, was an ok day, we ended up wanting to go apple picking, but decided to wait until next weekend when more apples are ripe. So, today, we drove around, went to the beach, to the local thrift shop, visited family, then finally came home and I made homemade pizza...and it was good!!!

Here's a few pics of our day!

Ryan, 21 months old

Friends & Family

So last night I was suppose to go to an 80's party...ended up not going! Surprise Surprise! I did want to go but the hubby was out dirt biking all day and then we ended up at a friends house having a bonfire. It was actually a nice night, but would have been much better if I would have had a little notice to get things ready for the little guy...You see men don't realize that you can't just jump in a car with a 21month old and go out!! Hello!!

Anyways, today I just want to scrap...I wonder if the hubby will actually let me do it...can you tell I'm a little upset with him today, he's being such a man!!!  ARRRRGGG! Men can be so self centered!
