yup, that's not about me for sure ! Especially this morning ;-))

Last night i created a page using Creative Scrappers Sketch 205 and new Amy Tangerine papers I got a few weeks ago. I love love love the bright bold colors, and fun patterns.

I chose this title ---- I'm Sexy and I know it ---- cause all day yesterday I kept signing this song ---- so i thought why not create a page with that title... and this picture of my niece was perfect! I had to steal it from her facebook page but i'm sure she's ok with that ;-))

and if you don't know what song i'm referring to
... here is a video for you!

Have a great day!

Cookie? Yes Please

Good Morning!

i'm happy to share another layout with you today ;-) This is layout 2 that I completed over the weekend. I am really in love with this paper collection from Simple Stories - it's called FABULOUS and for a reason -- it is!

Look at these fabulous stickers? Yup I actually used 2 of these. I have some left and a few scraps so for sure I'll have another page coming. It's one collection that I could use over and over again. For me, that's RARE!

this is my layout... of my niece enjoying a cookie on the front steps last summer. She's just too cute and often times does enjoy having her picture taken ;-) I called it Cookie! Sweet as a Sugar Cookie !!

So, i was scrappin with the girls over the weekend and Stephanie clearly pointed out that when i'm done with a layout - and have added my title... I SING MY TITLE! Too funny, but it's TRUE! When i've added all my little details, finishing touches and thickers stuck to my page .... i'll sing --- Sweet as a Sugar Cookie ------ She was Sweeeeeet as a Sugar Cookie! oh My... too funny ;-) Thanks Stephanie for pointing that out !

That's about it for today - i am currently working on a travel mini with Amy Tangerine goodies - hopefully i'll be able to share soon ;-)

Snap Shots

After a few days of attending a Crop & Create Event in Moncton NB, I am finally getting some energy! Why is it that scrapbook crops make me so tired... like drained -- probably all the laughing? the scrapbooking? the chatting?! Dunno, but man it's like a 2 day hang over after such weekend ;-)) worth every minute!

I'll have more details on that when I get pictures emailed to me from a certainly someone in St. George NB! Yup.... Giggles.. hurry up! ;-)

In the mean time I will share 1 of 2 pages I completed on the weekend. This layout was for a sketch challenge - sketch designed by Becky Fleck / Page Maps

The theme of the contest is “Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something COOL” and your entry should feature a product or technique from each of those four categories. you can read more about our CC challenges HERE!

My Something old is my Glimmer Mist, My something new is the Paper Collection from jillibean Soup, Something borrowed is my twine and cardstock and my Cool is the little MLBOW ladybug Pin!

What a Blast!
I can't wait to share some pics with you... this is one of them

Talk soon!

Yup! I've been inspired since the arrival of our new dining room table! Can you imagine .. i have a nice workplace with all my scrappy stuff within arms reach but I prefer to lug my stuff to the kitchen table and scrap!? The lighting is sooo much better, and I can watch tv and interact with Hubby while he's watching TV! Since last week i've completed quite a few pages.. which i am really happy about!

I have 5 layouts that I can't showcase yet -- they are for a Page kit for Let's Capture Our Memories that will be available for sale the Crop & Create in Moncton!

This is one of hubby and I that i finished last Friday Night ... a little late on the valentine theme but it's better late than never!

I was lucky enough to fly to Nova Scotia last weekend to visit my dear friend Stephanie. We had a great time shopping around on Saturday and Scrapbooking all night Sat and Sunday! I love visiting her and so enjoy the Kitty Kats. I think I have a secret crush on her little Gabe.. he's really too cute! He looks like a kitty that should be wearing a ripped jean jacket or a leather jacket you know !! heee!!!

i finished 3 layouts on the weekend
-- I'm really enjoying the latest Echo Park Collections and Simple Stories ;-)

Thanks for peeking! I hope you have a fabulous week and are able to enjoy a few hours of Scrappy Time! ;-)

She Art Canvas x 2

Hello Blog Readers!

I've been busy the past few days getting my Craft On! We purchased a new dining rooLinkm table 2 nights ago and I haven't left my chair!! Seriously. I've created 2 canvas and a layout and for me that's huge!

I was inspired by Christy's CHA Video creating a She Art Canvas ...
CliCK Here to Watch it at ---

Ep. 733 – Christy Tomlinson shows us her process for Making her Art!

Once I saw this video I immediately grabbed my Pink Paislee She Art goodies and created!

This first canvas (measuring 10x10) took me about 2 hours or less. I loved it! I loved the rubons, the diecuts, and wowie i made a mess but sooooo liberating!

I was so inspired I want to create a set of 4 canvas' to display in my scrap room. Stay Tuned for more next week!

The next day I wanted to make more .... I just loved my first one so i wanted to try another style, and other papers.... wasn't so giddyup on the thought of creating my own but it turned out ok. I used this funky embossed paper and it didn;t settle well on Modge Podge, but i love the My Little Shoebox papers I used ( Thanks to ZoZo!)

This canvas is 11x14 - a bit larger, I tried to create some form of grass and sky ... um ya that didn't work so well but it still turned out ok. These are really so much fun.. if you haven't tried this yet ---- you should!

Want some ideas on how to create She Girls or Mixed Media canvas' .. visit Christy's Blog for more info and check out her demos! Love that she does videos to showcase her techniques and products ;-)
