How many days are left? YIPPIE I can't wait for this year. My niece understands some of it - at least the presents part! I have to do some more shopping for the parental unit - what should I get them? CASH?
I went scrapbooking at my local LSS which has closed so we have resorted to going to a local fire house - so not as much fun as going to the store! This economy blows big time! We still have fun and made our Christmas Cards - I found a few off of the web that I really liked. So I copied the idea and I will now be making the envelopes for them!

Here is a slide show of a future scrapbooker - she just loves messing with my stuff. I now have a small drawer set aside for 'her' (my) scrapbooking stuff!

Today's the day to be the most creative you can be. We can turn ourselves into Rock Stars, princes, princesses and even something scary!!! I found this scary pumpkin on the web and thought it was really good. Is everyone going treat or treating tonight? Or Egging and TPing people's cars and houses? Which could be more fun???
On another note I entered the Dream Girls challenge this week for Think Pink and I tried to take the picture in different places yet again and was unable to get the entire scrapped page in the photo - but here is my entry below. As you can see I still have the darn light from the camera messing up the photo. You can't see what I wrote - it was You can never have enough Pink!

So I joined another scrapbooking challenge at Dream Girls
I really like this site - it's only twice a month and it doesn't have such strict requirements to stay a member of the challenge! I definitely recommend it. Go on over and sign up. The prizes are great too, plus you get your work out there! Here is one that I have posted - the first really isn't all that great because the requirement was a black and white photo - and I have yet to learn / master how to photo my work so it's a bit small.

It seems like forever since I blogged. I recently decided to clean up the pile of scrapbooking mess that is in my office. YIKES I really didn't know I have so much scrapbooking supplies - I need to stop buying and creating with what I have - but it is so hard when you see new products and they are sooo awesome you just get creative and want and buy and go crazy!!!
I also decided to join a few challenges; (1) Dreamgirls and (2) Bad Girls Kits
I am still in the twice a month challenges with Dream Girls but the rules with Bad Girls are so mean that I didn't make it past class two of the six week challenge - I was pissed because it was a great challenge - they don't tell you why you didn't make it - which is why I was even more mad. Isn't this supposed to be a fun and creative hobby? Why should all people be dissed like that!!! UGG so I will no longer participate in this blog or buy their monthly kit from them. That's what gets me - they are a service provider and in today's market need to make money and they loose customers this way! So I will begin the search for another company with great products and monthly kits and challenges.
I signed up again for The Button Farm's Extreme Scrapbooking Event for November - I can't wait you meet so many people and create some awesome projects - but it is definitely not for the beginner scrapper. I have been doing this for over 2 years and I was a bit slow. This was one of the books we created in just 2 hours - there were over 8 projects(?) and 5 make-n-takes.
I will start posting more of my work - I am just not good at taking the pictures and getting everything in the photo - to see all of the details.

Here is a view of what I received so far...
This company has awesome kits and add-ons!
I really don't like paper clubs but this one I couldn't refuse.
It has more than just paper!
I was ending my subscription to Simply Obsessed and found this one with has
way more products and paper that any other club!
It is a bit more monthly but I only signed up for a 3 month subscription.

Here is the new kit that should arrive any day now. I have so many plans for it already, I just need to set aside some time! These kits are really great and the possibilities are endless! The price is just right for them as well! I definitely recommend them and the monthly kit club!

This is Kate. She will be 2 in April. She comes to our house every Thursday. She opens all my makeup cases and decides on the one lipstick that will leave your skin a bit red. She put it all over her face and had 'some' on her lips!
This is my payback for her using my makeup - I get to make her look like she comes from the movie "The Grinch who stole Christmas" the kids all have hair that's funny like this. She is going to me a handful when she is a teenager but we don't want to rush that! She is always singing, dancing, laughing and just plain happy. She certainly puts a smile on your face!

Ok, so I finally joined a kit by the month club and it's not as bad as I thought it would be. This month's kit pictured above is from Simply Obsessed. The entire package seems to be colors and coordinates that I would have picked to do a project with. My next decision - which took some searching on the web - was to come up with what I was going to do with it. I really need to start publishing my work and get it out there.
I must recommend becoming a member of this kit club - Here is the website: http://simplyobsessed.biz/
I went to a crop this past weekend at Fordham University and just loved the group of women that get together! They could not be a nicer group of people. They share their ideas, laughs and I really had a great time. Some crops that I have been to doesn't seem to be as much fun to go to, the people don't really allow you to 'join-in' since they already have their 'groups/cliques' members already selected, I find that hard to handle so I kept searching for the right group to join and I think I finally found it. Once I use this month's kit I will post the final pics!

OK, so the New Year has finally arrived and I am already behind. I have so many plans and layouts that I need to finish from last year. My new year’s goal is to complete a layout a week. Yeah right! That didn't work last year so I need to devise a new plan. This year I will begin with working on my organization. There is nothing worse that knowing you have all that you need to complete a layout and can't find it, so what do I do? Buy more! Of course why not? So this year I will get organized. I went to Staples and purchased magazine holders for all of my magazines and then realized that I can use this for my 12x12 paper as well. I created with manilla folders dividers for the sections of paper.
