Sort the finish layouts in the bins before putting into albums 4. Finish my daughter's baby album in January-only couple more layouts to complete 5. Start my son's baby album (he is four months old but want to finish his before august) 6. Use my stash more before buying more supplies 7. Start my scrappy business in January thru etsy shop and my friend's business 8. Sort pictures of my nieces and nephew by year and add journals to them. 9. Upload pictures to shutterfly and get them print 10. Enter more challenges to get those pictures scrap As time go, I will change my goals as I have complete them. I'm looking forward to the new year. So much has happen this past year that i hope it's better in 2011. To all my new friends, Thanks for being with me in past year. I have cherished every one of you. Thanks!

Good morning! Sorry i haven't posted since wednesday as it was very busy. Yes cookies was save for Santa! lol We had a wonderful time. My sister and her kids came over Christmas eve for dinner and getting ready for Santa. We also had birthday cake for my little girl. Yep, she is two now. Her birthday was sunday. Christmas Day--daddy was up before everyone. lol he heard me get up and thought it was me and amber but I came down with Caleb. Amber was still sleeping. lol Then an hour later, she woke up and came down. She was so surprised! she was so good in taking turn with her baby brother. then both plays with their new toys. She saw the empty place. We told her santa ate all the cookies when he dropped off your presents. I got the perfect picture of her saying it's all gone. so adorable. I will posted them in while. I'm still taking pictures and journals for my Dec Daily. I'm planning to get them develop next month and will finish it up. I had so much fun. I'm planning to look previous christmas and see what pictures i have taken. I know i took alot everyday so i may be able to do it just the journals may be the hard part. We'll see. I have alot to share. I so need to go in my craft room now and clean but today is another busy day hopefully i will able to tonite. I have a few projects I want to work on and finish up this week before New year. I hope everyone had great christmas.

5 days to Christmas

Where did the time goes? I can't believe Christmas is just around the corner. I'm trying to get caught up. Saturday I decide to make reindeer ornaments for the kids to have on Christmas eve to feed reindeer. Of course I ran out of adhesive again in my sticker machine. They got to put some of kind of warning that it is near the end. lol Anyhow, I will finish that up tonite, as well for couple other items. I'm still working on my dec daily but will wrap it up in January when I get my pictures develop. I have alot to do to get done this week before Christmas. I need to finish those ornaments for kids on eve, finish up the albums if can, mail out Christmas cards as soon as I get them from shutterfly should be either today or tomorrow. I know it's late it was a last minute decisions to get it done. lol I will post it as soon as everyone get their in mail. lol so that what i'm working now is getting the address label done so I just put it on and put it in the mail. I try to do the letter to Santa with my daughter but she wanted no part of it. she is too little yet for that so i figure maybe next year. I already have my album pick out for Dec daily next year. I know early. Have anyone done Dec daily the previous year? I know i have taken pictures everyday last Christmas but journals might be little hard. Last year was a huge Christmas surprise when we find out i was pregnant with our second child. I have date of when we find out and stuffs. so I'm thinking of doing that. I figure that would be January project along with other. lol Off to check others' blogs! I'm trying to get around the blogs thru Stamping Ground but not doing too great on it as I'm not feeling that great, and hard to leave comments when you have a two years old yanking on your arm. lol

Making Christmas cards

It's that time of year where we all are thinking of making our annual Christmas card to send to family and friends. I was originally going to make my homemade, however, time is running out and I'm turning to the help of digital. Below I am writing about because of an awesome deal they are offering to bloggers, in return I will receive 50 free Christmas cards. This is my opinions and experiences mentioned are mine alone. Since Shutterfly is making it easy for me to make my Christmas cards this year. I went online and check out their website. As I was checking out their card & stationary section ( ), there are hundreds of designs to choose from. I was having a hard time picking out the best designs for my pictures as there were so many to chose from. I love them all. They even have more than 1 photo if you want to include a lot of pictures. I have picked out three that go along with my pictures of kids which I‘m excited about. I’m not going to show them because then it won’t be surprise for my family and friends. Shutterfly also offers other products such as coffee mugs for those loves one, ornaments for the tree, or even a calendar of year ( . ) Another great gift I'm thinking of doing is recipe book for my mom who make our traditional cookies every christmas--is doing the photobook that Shutterfly is offering. so check it out for yourself-- so check it out for yourself and see why I love shutterfly.

Poor guy took him almost six hours to get it hook up. Then i had a major scare last night. my 3 months old was playing on the floor when my daughter got behind our big bookshelf and push it. it fell on him. So I called 911 and took him to er. He is perfect, not a scratch on him. Thank the lord for sending him an guardian angel. so he is fine like nothing happen. ugh not soemthing this mommy want to happen. so i am getting rid of the bookshelf. whew! what a weekend! so my plan to scrap was postpone.

Today we put our tree up. No it's not decorate yet. We're planning to in couple days. Our daughter was so amazed by it. lol We trying to tell her about christmas and stuffs but she doesn't quite get it yet. lol Anyway, I'm sorry for really bad pictures. no matter how I try different angle, the lighting in room is really bad plus it's been dark and rainy. This little frame is 4 by 4. The Happy St. Patricks day sign came from Creating Keepsake freebie. the sticker is what i had in my stash. the green cardstock is from SU. the first card is white base then birthday cake was a sticker that was in my stash for long time. I use yellow glitter glue to highlite certain areas. I'm planning to stamp a saying inside. The second card is also from my stash, This is creative memories kit that come in small envelope. I use them here. it turn out really cute. i need to make one more card--for my daughter's 2nd birthday. I can't believe she will be two in 25 days. where did the time go? this card is for the jitterbugin challenge--may or may not use sketch, need to add ribbon and bling. Use white card base, ink around the edge with SU olive ink, tag came from CTMH christmas stamp. I add silver brad and top with lite green bling which is hard to see. the polka dot is su paper wrap green ribbon like it was a present and add the tag.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Good morning, all Happy Thanksgiving! I'm thanksful for my two wonderful kids and my sweetie. This past year has been a tough year for us financially but a happy times. We are so looking forward to going down to his mom for dinner. I can't wait. lol It is sleeting outside so we're hoping it lighten up before we head down. Last night, I put this card together pretty quickly using the Jitterbuggin challenge ( ). I originally was going to use a butterfly from my cricut but I had this kite already cut out from preivious project and thought it would work out even better. I use CTMH zipper stamp as an overlock stitch around the card border. then i hand stitch around mat, three color box and kite itself. It looks really cute all together. Thank for looking.
I'm off to get stuff together for our trip down to his mom. We're planning to stay overnight and go shopping on black friday. His mom will be watching the kids for us.

Here is my workdesk this afternoon: I finished the valentine collage but need to get the bigger frame. The frame I was planning to use the glass broke. :( I also started cleaning up putting papers, scraps, and tools away. We are goign away tomorrow and I want to have a clean scraproom when I come back on saturday. lol While i was cleaning up, I find my cupcake recipe album from a swap i did a few months before. I was going thur them and pick few recipes to try out for next month. I also receive my soup swap this past friday. I will post them next wednesday when i get an album for them. I ran out of page protectors so that mean a trip to Micheal. lol which is fine I have a list that i need to get while I'm there anyhow.
There are three layouts I send for Scrapbooking Ali design team. She provided three different sketches to chose from. I chose the first two. I love how they turn out. I know I need to work on taking pictures of my layouts. Sometime I luck out and other time it look crappy. lol I've been looking at wide format printer that would scan these. It is something on my wishlist.
Here is the card I made for the wedding invitation for The Scrapbook Queen: I really like how my cover turn out. I use Bazzil birthstone paper then I embossed in silver power for edge. then I printed their engagment picture in B & W then inside. I had trouble with but i like it.

Harry Potter!!!!!

Today I am going with my mom and we are going to watch Harry Potter! We've been waiting a long time for it to come in theater. I know I am so excite! I can't wait. lol I've finished the wedding card challenge and send in my entry. It was my first in making it. I think it looks nice maybe too simple for her. We'll see. I'm almost done with my second challenge which i can't post until after they pick winning entry. I will post them if I don't win. I love how all my layouts came out especially the one i just did this morning. lol I'm planning to do the Jitterbuggin' challenge. i already have the design in my head and the colors which wasn't the part of originally design that was in my head until I find the colorbok paper pack that I gotten at Wal-mart couple years ago that i just started using it. lol so i can't wait to do that card tonight. In previous post, I have mentioned of working on my friend's valentine collage. I have decide to do it all in 2x2 squares of various themes. So I am working on that. I'm planning to purchase the larger frame to show the large valentine collage as planned. I know i need to go to Micheal to get larger mat for frame. just need to decide on color--either red or black or maybe white I can mist it with my walnut ink. something to think about. Well, I need to get off and get ready to go over to my mom to go watch Harry Potter. Thanks for reading!

Wow-times just flew!

Good afternoon, all Yesterday I was at Big Lots and saw this on the shelf. I couldn't resist that big coffee cup. No, I won't be using it as a coffee cup. lol I would never be able to drink it all. lol After I make the cake, I am planning to use this cup in my scraproom to hold my markers and pen. It will go with my colors I have chose for my scraproom. I'm currently working on three projects: my first one is of course the wedding challenge: As you can see, it still in progress. I kinda got stuck on cover. I'm not sure if I'm liking this so I'm working on save the date card. you can see there is other stuffs on this table i need to put away where they belongs. lol Cleaning up is hard to do when i know i have lot of projects i need to do especially with Christmas coming around the corner. so i have decide to wait until January to do the major cleaning and purging where i can focus it more. This is my second project that I just started working on. This is Christmas gift for my friend, Sherry. Don't worry she doesn't know i have this blog. lol She love all the gifts i have made for her this couple past years. I will see if i can find the pictures of all items i have made for her to show you. I'm working on valentine's collage. I gotten this ideas from several blogger. I was originally going to make my own 2x2 squares or Atc size for 13 by 10 frame. While i was getting some papers, embellishments, etc. I came across the valentine swaps I did in 2009 (i think) I had them in a box which i completely forgotten about. so I went thur them as you can see the mess here. lol While i was doing this, I kept thinking of picture frame i saw when i was in big lot that i could incorporate alot more of this. I'm not sure what size that frame was but it was a large square for 10 dollars so that means a trip to big lot to get that frame to do this. I know if i use this smaller frame I might just do the 2x2 square as show on the bottom but i really like the larger pieces. Some of them were tags and i altered them to 2x2 square which work great. so i may change it up and do all 2x2 squares for this smaller frame. or get that larger frame. ooh, what a dilemma. lol or i could do it like i have picture below. wow don't know what to do. I have while yet or i could do both because i know her birthday is two day after Christmas as well. lol i know i know. my third project is one for design team that deadline is coming up pretty soon. I better get cracking and finish that up this weekend. lol Thanks for reading.

It's Manic Monday!

P.s. It was monday yesterday when I was type this but didn't get back on last night to finish it up. lol you know how it is~
Wow-where did the weekend go? Ugh! my plan to scrapping was interrupt by numerous things. I never got to do what I wanted to do over the weekend. However, this morning I had a chance to complete one layout for this challenge from Sassy Lil' Sketches (I wasn't able to upload to their site on time yesterday due to numerous interruptions): there was four elements that need to be added to this sketch:
1. group of three
2. Make a mess: ink, paint, etc
3. lace
4. add texture (embossing)
Here is my layout: Sorry for bad picture as it is very deary here. I use SU blue cardstock, moon and star PP for background, then i went thur my scraps stash and 10 squares to go around the pictures. I didn't put any in middle as the pictures would cover up the gap. then I use my cricut: home decor for dream cloud (you can't see it but i written sweet above the dream), new arrival for moon, animal kindgom for lamb border (I am planning to purchase PK face stamps), and star punch for three stars for banner. I didn't journal as the title said it all for me.
the second challenge was Jitterbug sketch ( ): Let's talk Turkey! here is my take.
Clean-up is still in progress. Haven't gotten far since the last posted. Well, off to get something done. lol
thanks for reading!
