The Things You Do

Yes, i created another page of my little nephew. His album needs a few more pages ... compared to his sisters he's got nothing! So... i'm adding to his album ;-)

I used Jillibean Soup again... and i promise this is the last one for this week alteast!
I still have a few left overs that i want to use up ;-)

now what am i going to play with!? I think a little October Afternoon maybe... I have some cupcake sitting on my desk and even a little Pebbles Inc.!

Can you tell I'm on vacation this week!!? Yup, the weather has been nothing but rain and clouds so i figured why not claim the kitchen table as my own this week and Create! That's what i'm doing ;-)

have a fabulous day!

Cute Little Dude & Typepad

Did you read my post yesterday about my love for Macho Nacho?! Well today is no exception! I created another layouts last night using this awesome Jillibean collection -- when i finished i looked at it and realized it's pretty close to the one i created 2 nights ago ;-) I've been creating girlie pages for the past few years with the occasional kitty page, so creating for my little nephew is encouraging me to create manly/ boy pages.

Here's a look at --- Cute Little Dude! Isn't he cute?! ;-))


Well yesterday I started playing around TYPEPAD, and seeing if i could do a few edits to their templates... so i could " decorate " a few Typepad blogs.. I managed to learn a few things thanks to Google... and from a plain page this is what i ended up with..

I am able to edit to 2 columns, or 3 and also create banners/ backgrounds/ and a few sidebar items. I haven't mastered the signature or post separator yet but i'm sure i can find out how. So, if you have a TYPEPAD blog and wish to get a makeover ... i'll take 10$ off my regular price of 40$ plus your kit! For a limited time only ... until July 5th. CLICK here to register your blog and i'll get started on your makeover ;-)

Thanks for stopping by, i do enjoy your visits ;-)

100% Boy - Macho Nacho

There is something about Jillibean Soup paper collections that just grabs my eye. I love them all! I love the fact that you can get sticker sheets, diecuts, and great double sided papers to create ( in my opinion ) great pages! I love the colors of this new collection MACHO NACHO!
It is great for man, boy, and even some girl pages. I created this page last night in probably less than 2 hours .. and loved every minute of it.

I have a THING for diecuts and stickers and mounting them on pop dots just makes me happy! Is that normal?! probably not to most but i can be sure as a scrapper you can relate right?! RIGHT!?! ... anyhoo, if you have a change to play with this collection -- DO IT!

Play & Under Water Time

Yes, I must admit I LOVE the fact that my nieces love to play with paper! I visited last week and both my nieces created pages for their albums. I love that creative time with them.

This is Miss Megan's page. It's an ABOUT ME page ;-) She Loves flowers, dogs, birds, her mom and also loves to play!
"play" by Megan - age 5

This is little Miss Marissa's page -
Too cute.. she created a page for her sister and I love the journaling! Marissa is french and when she write in English it's too cute cause she writes as she says it. it's precious!

Summer Love

It's Wednesday, i enjoyed a day off today and got a little creative! I was browsing my favorite sites and stumbled upon this sketch from Becky Fleck on the Bella Blvd Blog. I've been wanting to create with Hexagons lately and this sketch was perfect!

My layout is of my niece, enjoying some time outside last week. With the sun shinning it just felt like a great summer day. Sadly it's been freezing since then, but i'm sure the sun will come out soon enough and i'll be complaining it's too hot! But regardless, i love this picture of her. She just turned 9 years old on Monday and she's growing up... wow.. seems like just a short while ago i was changing her diapers LOL! ..

This Bella Blvd Collection - Sunshine & Happiness was great for this paper. All the colors blend in well and of course matches her shirt. I don't use black cardstock as a base very often, so this was a bit different for me.

Thanks for peeking and hopefully you have an hour or two to create this week!
Hopefully I'll have time to play a bit more... i'm on a roll!

Chow for Now!

NOT 9-5 and YSJ to YHZ


A little reveal for you today -- layouts i created this past weekend .
the first one is called NOT 9-5 using the October Afternoon collection called 9 to 5.
Sadly i have a job that isn't 9am to 5pm but more of a whirlwind of every other shift. I sometimes work 10-6pm, 330pm to 1130pm and even a rare overnight shift. Honestly i don't love it but i think i would get bored with the regular monday to friday shift of 9-5. Don't get me wrong .. i certainly would appreciate it!!

This second layout is called From YSJ to YHZ using Studio Calico papers.
I took a flight last month from Saint John NB to Halifax NS.. about a 35 minute flight to visit my friend Stephanie. It usually takes me about 3.5 to 4hours but this time i decided to fly. It was quick and easy and so fun. I got to sit and watch the clouds go by! This SC collection was perfect for my Sky High photo ;-)

Thanks for peeking!
Have a great week ;-)

At The Park

yes it's almost Summertime and I so love spending some quality time with my little nieces and nephew. The girls are growing up so fast and i cherish every moment i have playing at the park with them... They sometimes get very annoyed by my constant sayings of " Picture.. let me take a picture!"

I created 2 pages using : Bella Blvd Collection - Sunshine & Happiness
you get this collection at two peas! it's awesome!

Hope you enjoy a day at the park soon! remember to take a few pics ;-)

Sunshine Crop Sketches

Hello Friends!

I am a little pooped tonight to say the least. What a great weekend scrappin some, chatting some, and enjoying the company of great friends.
I hosted a fun online crop and in house gals got to play as well. We had over 300$ in prizes from amazing sponsors that will be posted on the Creative Scrappers site tomorrow with the names of ALL the winners .. in case you didn't get a chance to participate i'll post the sketches here and perhaps you can find time to play at your next scrappy event ;-)

if you check my sidebar, i have a feed of all my instagram pics! Some of the were taken at the crop - mostly sneaks of a few pages ;-)
I completed 4 pages which seems to be my norm for a scrappy weekend. I will for sure post them soon as well as the pics of my latest Vacation Snapshots mini album ;-)

THANK YOU to ALL the awesome chicks that came to scrap with us this weekend --- it really is a great time and hopefully we'll be able to get together again soon! Real Soon ;-)
