I WAS... broken
I AM... stronger than ever
I THINK... about the strength of Mother Nature
I WONDER... if anyone will remember my kindness when I am gone
I WISH... my Mom found a job
I SAVE... too much stuff
I ALWAYS... try to think of others
I CAN'T IMAGINE... life without my husband
I BELIEVE... in mermaids
I PROMISE... to be kind to others
I LOVE... my life
I SCRAP... things to be remembered

Here is a card I created for a challenge on our SLL blog.

Monday, June 20, 2011

I think this is my favorite card that I have ever created. It was for my best friend Val! I loved the colors!

A homemade Birthday Banner for my co worker.

This is a layout Val and I lifted from Amy Tangerine for SLL!

This is one of the Memorial Frames I made for my mom's best friend, her mother passed away after being so sick with stomach cancer for more than a year. So sad! My mom's friend Linda loved her frame and has it hanging in her den. :)

This one was also inspired by a Word Challenge at The Scrappers Sanctuary. Utilizing the word "Wish" its a very personal and hard to talk about subject. So I am putting it out there I am hoping to get some sort of healing from this...


I created this layout utilizing The Scrappers Sanctuary's Black and White challenge with a little blue and using 2 patterned papers. But I couls not figure out how to upload on to there forum so here it is :)

This is a layout of my Mom's Birthday March 17, 2011. We took my mom Bar hopping which she has never done before. We started off at 38 degrees which is the temperature they keep the tap beer at, there is 100 beers on tap. But I had a Crown Royal and diet coke. Because: "Beer before liquor make you sicker". So I will not start off with beer and move to a mixed drink cause I don't want a hangover lol!!! Then, we were off to Frontera's Bar and Grill this is where the photo was taken. We had appetizers and more drinks. We had a great server and stayed there a little longer that expected then we were off the Tony Roma's Bar where they have happy hour all day every day! That was okay the drinks were cheap weak so by this time I was ordering Crown on the Rocks no coke lol! It was a fun night. Then we went to our place for music, cake, ice cream and presents. It was so much fun!!!

This layout was created for Scrappy Jo's National Scrapbooking Day. I did not get to participate the day of due to Grandma breaking her hip so lucky for me the due dates were extended until 5/22/11 so I could complete a few of them. I was so happy to be able to scrap finally!

our rules were:
1.) we had to scrap eachother. Something we have not done before...
2.) was to include different alpha's
3.) was to utilize 4 different papers
4.) was to include a stamp on your lo

and this is what I came up with.


Been so into my nails lately:

Here are a few of my Challenge layouts:
Lately I have been needing a challenge to get going on my scrappy stuff. I just have not been in the mood lately. But thanks to my dear Val at Scrap, Laugh, Love blog and Mary and Renee at Scrappy Jo's I have been inspired.

Venice Beach, California a must see if you visit SoCal...

Feathers was the prompt:
This is what I came up with: I used the Pink Paislee prize paper Val shared with me...along with some washi tape and some feathers that Val sent me from her Grab Bag of the Month Swap on I love that swap!!! And some fabric rosettes also inspired by Val...

Here is a card using the TWINE prompt from Scrap, Laugh, Love:

This is my challenge entry for SLL. Since I don't own any yarn, I used this sticky yarn I have had in my stash for a while. I made flowers with it and added a brad.
