I've gone Christmasy

I've been playing with some digi stuff again ... and I have gone Christmasy..
i used Kate Hadfield digi elements again and couldn't put santa in the picture yet... gotta save that for later!

I had great company here this weekend... sister and kids with my mom and dad( kind of! )
Dad was busy doing his own thing with friends... but i did enjoy some time with the girls. The weekend always flies by when they are here... i wish i could just stop the clock for a few hours and enjoy those quiet fun times. Cuddle times!

We did take a few pictures and will post them after uploaded them. Little Megan is growing soo fast... she is soo sweet! Learning quite a few words at the age of 20 months and is sooo sweet.
Marissa is growing into a little lady. We enjoyed going to the Christmas Parade on Sat night. It was a bit chilly but overall a good 45 minutes standing around.

Tonight.. is a relaxing night and probably going to bed early. I start a new shift tomorrow ! Can you say WOOP WOOP! ? .... been a long 3 months working nights and now up at 630am tomorrow morning to be at work for 8am.. thank goodness for strong tea! It will be nice to be home before dark and be able to SCRAPBOOK at night. Oh I can't wait!

A Few Creative Scrappers notes... if you are interested!
I just finished a Mini album class and will be starting another after the Sketchfest taking place next Sunday! We also have a 1 hour sketch challenge on Tuesday .... Nov 25th Be there!
We have a ton of other challenges going on, but you have to come on over and find out for yourself! hahah!! and yes.... I still have space for the CROP on Jan 10th .. so hurry ... sign up and come play with us!

I was browsing a few blogs tonight and of course I had to stop by Kate Hadfields to see what she had brewing in the digi world for me. As you know I have a love for her digi elements! She had this precious kit posted.... isn't this the cutest!??

I really can't wait to play with these little doodled images! I wish scrap paper would be made out of these elements.... kate... you need to start creating some paper for us traditional scrappers!
Check out the LilyPad if you want some of her digi elements!

Basic Grey at Micheals!!

Well, today I went to get a few things at Micheals and as i walked down the aisle I see ......

Basic Grey .... tons of Basic Grey! ( Archaic, and Sugared!) Rubons, Brads, paper pads 6x6, paper pad 12x12, Card Kits, I couldn't belive it! A bit expensive for the paper pads at 29.99 but with a coupon might be worth it. They also had basic Grey Chipboard Albums! The older ones mind you but still! What the Heck??!! I don't know if i am mad or happy about this ... Kind of hard for the Scrapbook Stores when Basic Grey ships out to Micheals... It's older stock, but still ...

I also saw this collection from Basic Grey .. Collection Pack called Deck the Halls. It was a new collection ... i think. I have never heard or seen " Deck the Halls " as a collection . They also had Bazzill Cardstock Assorted Collections to match Basic Grey .... and My Mind's Eye!

Well... that's my bloggin for today!
I should have project to post tomorrow ... My " me " page for our Book of Me Challenge at Creative Scrappers!

Weekend is Over!

oh Time flies when you are having fun! I was home for 2 days ... Sat/ Sun and completely enjoyed my time off. I finished 4 layouts and I finally feel like I got my MOJO back! Thank Goodness!!!

I actually stayed up really late last night, Hubby and i watched a movie " Hancock " with Will Smith. It wasn't his best movie that's for sure, but it was ok. Not one i would highly recommend but it was worth sitting down for 2 hours in front of the tv. After the movie at about 130am I still had a bit of energy so i sat and scrapbooked till um.. 340am !!! yikes! I can truly admit that I get creative past midnight!

Hubby and I woke up at about 1230pm and then were super lazy all day. I didn't even do laundry or make the bed!!! Stayed in our jammies all day and relaxed. We actually had a dinner date but decided to stay home instead and go out next Sunday Night. We have a gift certificate that expires and must use it by nov 16th. Can you tell we don't go out to eat much??! Hubby is such a good cook that it's hard to validate spending 60$ on a meal .... but we will next weekend.

I have another long week of working 530pm -2 am this week... and a crop to attend on Saturday! YOUPEEEEEEEEEE!!! I really am excited about going ... it's been ages since i've attended a crop and this will be fun. Stephie and I will be doing some cards, and probably a mini album as well. I can't make cards for 10 hours .. i would go crazy! Can't wait!

I will be posting sneak peeks of my layouts tomorrow since they won't be posted on the Scrapbook Sussies site till a bit later.. Once they are revealed on the site i will be able to upload them here... stay tuned!

alright. ...
it's time for bed!

Chow for now

A New Schedule!

A sign of relief today... We have to bid on schedules at work, based on seniority, for our shifts. We have a rotational schedule and also a 5x2 schedule. The last bid i chose to take a 5x2 and I ended up with a 530pm shift which I do like, but don't love! So many people chose a rotation so that doesn't leave me with much to choose on a 5x2. Complicating I know.. but today was the day we bid for our winter shift ... and i decided to go with a rotational schedule. This will give me day shifts and evening shifts and alternate days off. So.... no more 530pm shifts ! YOUPEEEEEEEE... I get my scrapbooking time again! I can't wait to be home at night to watch tv, to drive home with hubby after work, and yes.... evenings to scrapbook with friends maybe!!!

I am sitting at work tonight, and really wish I was home doing something else! The layout kits for Creative Scrappers are almost complete. Deb has emailed me her layouts and I am just finalizing the sketches and instructions... so they are coming soon! As for the Creative Kits... these should be complete by next weekend! .. A newsletter will be going out shortly to our Creative Kit newsletter subscribers!

If you haven't checked the Creative Scrappers online store in a while... i have added a few Pink Paislee papers from the Office Lingo Collection at reduced prices, and 1 collection of Crate Paper Prudence and Basic Grey Albums... limited quantities available!
I also have a class for a mini holiday planner... come join us! We have a great group of ladies in the class right now and we always have room for more! Don't be shy... we don't bite! LOL! and you can use your own supplies .... great gift idea too! Come play!

Talk Soon!
