Late Night Post

Where to begin I wonder? Well, I am getting ready for bed and just
thought that I would pop in to share a few things with ya. I have a FAVE
new site that I look foward to visiting everyday now! It is Card Positioning
System and I just finished card sketch #49!!! Yep, the card above is the
one. It is just about a week away before I am off to CHA!!! We are down to
working out the VERY FINAL and minor details of the trip! I have to make
sure that my camera is set to take the MAX amount of pictures and
rechargeable batteries are a MUST HAVE!!!
Tomorrow is the first which means that I will be revealing a sneaky peek
of February's Tutorial! There will also be a sneaky peek of the mini kit
I will be giving away in a drawing. Whoever participates and links their
finished work to PCI gets there name in!
SUPER exhausted now so gotta go. See you tomorrow which is now as I
am typing. LOL!

Todays Randomness

So, so, soooooooooooooo, today is just one of those days where nothing
much is going on but you feel there is TONS to do. I am just hangin out a
little bit on the computer, hangin out with the little ones, and getting
ready to finish some projects as well as start PCI's second tutorial for
February!!! YAAAAAAAY!!! I am still SUPER happy that I decided to start
this blog. If you have something that you would like to share such as techniques,
tips, etc., please let me know! I tire of me, myself, and I stuff sometimes
and would LOVE to see my fellow crafters faces and projects. Just let me know
in the comment section!
It is now less than two weeks before I head off to CHA!!! Since this is going to be
my first time and all I would LOVE to know what to expect, classes I should take,
people who I should see, and just what the overall experience is like. If you have
been please share!
OH, for those who participate in PCI's Tutorial for the month of February
your names will be entered into a drawing for a FAB mini kit put together by
myself. I promise it will be worth it so stay tuned for a peek of the tutorial and
mini kit!!!
Be Blessed!!!

Todays Tidbits....

CHA, CHA, CHA!!! CHA, CHA, CHA!!! Maybe if I say it enough it
the time will come faster. LOL!!! I just got an email today saying
that my flight was being booked!!! WOOHOO!!! It is comin up pretty
fast now but not fast enough for me.

The page that you see above it my FIRST EVER digi page!!! With
all the hype going on about digital scrapbooking I thought that I
should finally give a whirl. I REALLY liked doing but know that I
just may lean more over to the hybrid side. I LOVE hands on too much!!!
Until next time BE BLESSED!

Almost forgot to give credit where credit is due. The kit that I used is
from Shabby Princess!

Not So Happy Birthday

Well, today was hubby's birthday but I can assure you that it
was NOT a happy one! He came down with a hive attack and has
had it for three days now. I am SO SORRY BABY! He did get
his hands on some REALLY good cream and the doc perscribed
him some other stuff to take. He is TOTALLY whiped out now
from the itching alone. It is just ALL over his body. Please keep
him in your prayers!

Shanty Creations and Day to Day Livin....

Good, good afternoon! I wanted to share some AWESOME sponsor
goodness with all of you today. KI MEMORIES and THE SCRAP ROOM KIT CLUB
sent the SCRAPSHANTY TEAM some YUMMO goodies to play with!!!! Everything is just fantastic and I still have a few more projects to complete so MORE FUN for me!!! I hope you don't mind KI but since I can't get my hands on some of your LOVELY lace paper right now I made my own from some red scrap cardstock I had. I will be getting some lace paper soon though!

walk yet but it sure feels that way. I have to chase this little girl everywhere. Her mind is constantly workin along with those little hands! LOL! She is still the sweetest thing though!
Have a BLESSED weekend!

Hi everyone!!! I am checking in to do a little bit of
catching up. I hope that the holidays was a joyous time for you all! I just recently did my first 18x18 page!!! It was TONS of fun and totally not as hard as I thought that it would be. It is the one above titles A STRONG FOUNDATION. On the word STRONG in the title I used buck naked chipboard. I used MM paint and then a butterfly stamp to cover the letters. Than I used some gems to add a little something special.

These two pictures are close ups of some of the details on this layout!

This next page was a created simply for some creative release.
I used felt, fabric, paper, and some basic stitching to create
the bird along with some chipboard. I am really trying out new
things on my pages and just grow my crafting skills in general.

Finally, these are a few Christmas pics that I took of my
little ones! I didn't really like how the studio pics were turning
out in past years so I decided to give it a go and take my
own. I am no professional but I REALLY LOVE the way these
turned out!!!

I forgot to mention that I will be starting a new blog to go along with
with this one. It is going to be for tutorials. I am going to start off with one turtorial a month and see where goes from there!!! Be on the look out for that and for more pages really soon!!!
Have a BLESSED New Years day!!!
