Hi everyone. I've been MIA AGAIN. Well not really. I'm ALWAYS on the computer checking everyone elses work but never updating my own. I apoligize for that.
What have I been up to lately. Hmmm. Well, I joined 2 more swaps. I recently joined a mini swap with Craft Craving Chicas. And got Lisa as my partner. I had a gr8 time working on her mini. We traded information with this trade and she told me she liked hidden journaling spots, Pink & Black and Bling! So, I of course tried to incorporate it all and I think I did pretty well. She actually recieved it on Friday and did a video of it on her blog, so you must go over and check it out because I FORGOT to take photos of it to make a SLIDE. I could just kick myself. I can't wait to receive her mini made for me :) http://snazzychica.blogspot.com.
Also I joined Kathryns (Life on the Scrap Beach) mini swaps TWS. I will be trading with Jenn. Our challenge here was "Thick & Chunky" I finished my mini and hope she likes it. And I think I covered the think & chunky part. Well, I'm pleased with my work. I did what "I" thought Thick & Chunky should look like.
I'm still with Marions GGS club. Can't wait until we recieve out partner for this month.
Also I need to Thank Kathryn from Life on a Scrap Beach, She had my name for Aug Swap from GGS and did and Amazing Job on her mini for me. I Absolutly loved it. I will post a Slide of my mini from her. But you can also check her work out in a 5 park video on You Tube at http://youtube.com/profile?user=desdichaedo#play/uploads and you'll want to look under 5x5 Black & Ivory Fusion. Great Job Kathryn!!!
Ok what else. I purchased a kit from CCC and it is amazing. I love it!!! I am in the middle of chossing my photos for it now, I just HAVE to put it together. I am also in the process of organizing photos of my daughter and her "first" childhood friend. I want to make a mini album of this summers activities. Only I will be making it in an 8x8 album. I am also working on a mini of mt daughters 1st live shows. We saw Toopy & Binoo, Barney, and Molly & Lunette. So much fun to see her smile,I will post pictures of these projects as soon as they are done.
Also I purchased Glimmer Mist from an amazing site that Lisa told me about. And cannot wait to recieve them. BUT it may take a while. Living in Canada and ordering from the US is not as easy as it looks. :( Peachy Cheap told me it can take up to 3-4 weeks to arrive, Where as US girls recieve their orders in 2-3 days. It must be the way its shipped, because when I send out my minis to the US girls they recieve them in a week. Oh well. I will post pics when they arrive. (Oh ya theres a few Peachy Cheap orders as well)
Ok Guys, thanx for stoppin bye. Sorry for the LONG post. Talk to you soon. Happy Scrapin
Ok, SO I think I have covered everything.

New Video Camera from Hubby

New Video Camera from Hubby

Layout I made the other night. Here's Felicia's 1st boo-boo. She was so good, she didn't even cry, But she was so darn cute. Just had to scrap it!!!

Finished Clock :) I had fun putting this together. I new a wanted a pic of my baby girl and I HAD to put Owls. So cute. I like the way it turned out.

New clock for my scrapbook room. I plan to add photo's and embelishments . Hope it turns out well. I thought it was the perfect design for my room. Cute idea eh? I'll post a photo once it is done.

Picture of me and my layout that was posted in Canadain Scrapbooking Magazine

Kleenex Box Inspiration

Layout I made inspired from this Kleenex box

Owl pictures for Felicia's future bedroom, made them myself. Cute eh.

I had mentioned that I make fabric covered albums. So I took a photo to show you. This is the fabric I chose for Felicia. I chose the animal theme becasue that is what I had put in her room when we got it "ready for baby". And i couldn't resist, look how cute they are.

The albums I made in the past consisted of a page for all the holiday and special occassions throught out the year. So for my daughters albums I did the same and more. I am in the process of making a 3rd album just to fit all my layouts in. This is a layout I made with her newpaper clipping and her beautiful new born face and her name. Sorry the colour is so light. I also made pages to record all the special moments and milstones for the year.

I "HAD" to scrapbook this picture of my baby girl. Isn't she just so cute without any teeth. Its funny to look back at pictures and see all they didn't have or couldn't do. I plopped her up on pillows and grabbed the camera. At that time it was so easy to take a picture, now that she is ONE, ha...

Every month, for the whole year, I took a picture of my daughter in front of a huge stuffed giraffe we have to see her growth. On this particular day she was smiling away at daddy who just happen to walk in while our little photo shoot.I just had to scrapbook it, she looks so sweet. I used paper to pick up on the red outfit she is wearing and I used the paper glaze to highlight some of the dots on the paper.The letters are felt stickers.

In this layout, I just experimented with my coloured paper. Nothing special I did here. I loved her feet and had to scrapbook it :) Oh wait I did use a few rubons from stampin up and I put paper glaze on the words to make them a little glossy.

This layout was inspired by Marion from A piece of craft .com. She does amazing work and I had to try this layout. I didn't have some of the things she had so I inprovised. I tried to use the colours from the photo.This pic was taken on my daughter 1st birthday, mommy holding back the tears as everyone sang.

I used this pattern paper for inspiration here. I used the qiuckutz to cut my spiral and glued several layers together to gift it a 3D effect and I also embossed the xoxo chipboards in white. Daddy and Felicia on Canada Day.

Yay!!! I finally did it. This is one of my fav. layouts of my baby girl. I love the black & white photo and the punch of pink from the flower.

This was Felicia's 1st Canada Day, I just had to scrapbook it. I also recently purchased "The Squeeze" hand tool and used it for my layout.

I placed a red bow on her sunhat for the day and later used it for my layout. Our Walmart recently received new Kodak picture kiosks and I love that I can make my photo's so tiny.You can fit so much more on a 81/2 x 11 layout.

I love how the colour of the phot turned out in this picture, I had bought this paper a while ago and was finally able to use it. I think the two work well together.

Card I made for my mom with my new Cuttlebug that she bought for me for my bday (Dad too). Love it!!!

Another card using the cuttlebug!
