Did this for the color challenge--terrible scan but am sharing it anyway, cause I'm really happy with how it looks IRL.

Great new lo's everyone!!'

Kell, congrats on your wedding anniversary!

Melissa, your walk/run sounds terrific! I need to get more exercise, but I can't imagine walking, but much less running any part of 5 miles. WTG!!

I hope everyone else had a great weekend.

I started one lo, and picked out the photos for another. My dh is out of town again, so my computer time will be limited this week. I'll check in when I can. Take care!!

JCI and to say hello to you all.

Beautiful sunny day weather 14C, we have had a great walk about 4 miles too and it is our wedding anniversary.





Happy Anniversary Kell! Did you do anything fun?

I have been working in my gardens all day - I am WORN OUT!! Planted 36 tomato plants and lots of other stuff, too (peppers, green beans, purple beans, 5 varieties of cucumbers, lots of daylilies... on and on!) And trimmed and weeded, etc. I am going to bed EARLY tonight! LOL

Happy Anniversary Kell.. by now it's probably a new day in your neck of the woods! Hope your day was special!!
Girls, I love all the stuff you got done this weekend!! I CLEANED a lot. It needed to be done. We're looking at possible new flooring in our first and second floor.. and I am just overwhelmed with the thought of moving all the stuff from one room to another. I have to get orgainzed!!

WOW! DIana, I'm jealous of all the work you got done outside today! I'm itching to get out there too.. it's just a bit to cold here in PA yet.. hopefully this weekend. I did buy some seeds.. I'm anticipating!

Melissa, that was great for the homeless!!!


I will get to all later after I run my errand. My list seems like a mile long. I just want to rest and scrap!!!

JCI Ladies. Didn't get ANYTHING done this weekend. My hubby was at Army training this weekend, so it was just me and the kids. Hoping to get some stuff done tonight.

There was supposed to be a backup - in fact I was told it was restored as it was before the "glitch" but not so. At least it's a done probject and I can put it behind me. The company needs to be fired!

Have a good weekend Laura, and all of you of course.

Our clocks change tonight, so i get an an hour less tomorrow, but it means the evenings will start getting longer.

Let the gardening begin!!!!





I got the gardening bug over the weekend too! Needless to say I didn't get any scrapping time in. DH bought another boat and we'll be heading to Dallas to pick it up on Saturday and then fishing on Sunday....It's a good think we have cooler weather here during the winter or I'd never get any scrapping done! Perhaps during the weeknights?

I know...another post. That's what happens when you can't check in for a few days...and it may be a few more again. Got the desk painted and set back up last night...still waiting for the doors to dry enough to put them back on. I'll upload pics when it's done.

Kell....happy late anniversary! Our first anniversary is the 21st of April...hard to believe it's been an entire year! We're going on a fishing trip to celebrate...we fish a bunch!

Happy week to all. I intend to get birthday cards out - belated of course but I'm going to get to them tonight.
TTFN!

I still haven't gotten to scrap. There's always something else that has a higher priority around here. =P It so isn't fair!

I just wrote a huge message and lost it!!!

I said I was glad to see Helena back,

Diana, can't start gardening here yet, just tidying and weeding, will plant my seeds soon, in the heated greenhouse

Wendy i don't know how you stay so cheerful with moving house.

Melissa, i climbed kilimanjaro and the Inca Trail for our local homeless shelter. I am organising a fund raising ball for them in june after my US trip.

Everyone one else hope you are happy and healthy, don't work too hard!!

I am trying to create a new avatar every month based on an event in the month. April 23rd is St Georges day, patron saint of England.

Came home from work today to find two birthday cards in my mailbox!

Believe it or not, but I forgot that my birthday was next Saturday and that I'd be getting cards from people. LOL. I remembered it was my birthday. I just forgot that people cared. =P

Which reminds me. I have a $180 budget for my birthday present. WHAT ON EARTH do I buy with that? So many things, but I want to get the most bang for my buck as possible.

Too bad it isn't enough for a personal die cut system like the Cricut Expressions or something! I'm totally itching for one but I know it will probably be some time next year before I can afford one.

But thank you, Wendy and Debbie for the gorgeous birthday cards!

My Mom found a Cricut at a garage sale for $100 (and it had never even been used) so don't count that one out! Hold on to you $$ and keep looking if that's what you want!

Kell...your avatar is a riot! My DH would be a bit embarrassed too! Oh well..I went into his office and the new boat is now wallpaper on his monitor...it's going to be a very long week!

I'm going to hit the sack! I'll check in tomorrow!

Good morning. This is a hectic week--our school is going through accreditation. So am somewhat behind, with no lo's to show from the last few days. But, anyway, we had a wonderful card swap, and are now into a long-term b'day card swap. You all have done a fabulous job on lifts of Sherrise and Laura. But, in honor of a new month, let's all try to lift a lo of Kell's. Just take a tour through her lovely gallery and pick one.

Have a good day, will try to catch up tonight.

Oh my. I am so behind. I feel like I have done nothing the past week. I have so much to catch up on and my scraproom is a mess! However, I did get a bunch of scrappy stuff today in the mail and I ahve two cricut cartridges and a cricut tool kit on the way in the mail. I also got a brand new camera the other day! It is so nice! So, I have everything that I need in order to scrap some beautiful things, I just need to do it!! Help! I need some encouragment.

jci!! Looking forward to lifting one of Kell's lo's! I think I'll combine it with the stamp challenge too.

Wendy, I am so glad you thought of the birthday card exchange. It really helps to motivate me to create more cards. My family doesn't appreciate hand made cards at all, so I have been a little discouraged. This was just the inspiration I needed.

I have not had much computer time lately, but I think I am acu. Hope to check back in tomorrow.
Bye for now!!

Sounds like we're a busy, busy bunch this week. Hopefully things will settle down; but for me the whole month of April is hectic. I'm trying to find one Friday night to have my friend over and focus on SCRAP.

Kell, lifting yourself is a great idea! In fact, a year or so ago there was a whole challenge to lift one of your own lo's--hmmmm. Maybe that can come at a later month.

You have new toys to play with! Yea for you! I'm still trying to find time to get to my new toy! Spring is alwasy so busy! I guess we'll both get to them eventually! My DH keeps scheduling things for me to do! I'll be glad (well sort of) when it gets too hot to go anywhere so I can stay home and scrap!

Sherrise...Hows the expression?

Hi Laura, I think the birthday card swap is so fun!!

Hi Mary Lou!!

Debbie...did you ever hear about your job?

Kell... I will be scouring your gallery today for a lift!

Debbie, I am sorry you did not get the job. Hopefully, you will get job offers from the interview next week.

Nicole, so excited to hear about all your scrapbook goodies. Just think of all the neat stuff you wil be able to create with that!! Sounds like lots of fun!

Melissa, in case I don't get on tomorrow, here is an early "happy birthday" wish!! I hope you have a fabulous day!! Anything special planned?

Wendy, I think Chelsea said she would not expect internet service before this week, so she may still be waiting on that. Are you getting ready for your cruise?? Will it be a family vacation, or just you and the hubby?

Kell, salsa sounds like so much fun! Have a wonderful time!!

Beth, I think it is great that you and the hubby get to do so much together too. You really do sound like newlyweds! I know what you mean about the temperatures soon being so high that it will be too hot to do anything outside. It won't be long before summer hits here too.

Hiya Bev and Sherrise! I have just been busy chasing that six year old boy. I received his soccer photos yesterday, and I just can't stop smiling. He decided to give his most serious "game" face for the individual shot. Can't wait to do a page with that one. I really want to do a 2 pager, so I may wait and try to get some action shots next week to go with the posed photo.

Well, I had better get back to work. Happy Friday everyone. I'll check back later!!

Also, guess what...I found out yesterday that I was chosen for an Assistant Manager job, so I start that on May 1st. It's very exciting, but nerve racking too. More responsibility.

Just a quick check in. Great new lo's. Maybe a misunderstanding--the stamping doesn't have to be heat embossed, but can be.

Nicole, have fun with all your new goodies, and scrap, scrap, scrap!

Hopefully will have some time to catch up and scrap tomorrow night after family's gone.

Thanks, Laura. I do admit that I love to see them comments.

Okay, let me get this straight. For this month's challenge, we do a LO using stamps. Is there any limit on how we do them? How many? Sorry but I just want to clarify. I would get into so much trouble in my graphic classes if I didn't. lol At the end of the courses, especially Illustrator, the instructor told me that I really tried his patience. He also said that I was talented. Not too loud though. lol

Hi Gals!

Happy Sunday!!

Nicole, hope you got to scrap with all that fun stuff!!

I haven't had much time with my expression yet. I did make a cute gift bag for a baby with it, which was really alot of fun. Maybe today? My hubby's under the weather, so we'll see.

Last one to share for this weekend. It was for the Very Laid Back Challenge of using no type of patterned paper . It did not turn out exactly like I planned, so I may end up re-doing this later:

Debbie, just use stamps--clear, acrylic, foam; ink, paint; plain, embossed; one, a few, many; background, title, journaling, embellie; one lo, many lo's. We're just trying to enlarge our scrapbooking "box." Hope I didn't leave out anything obvious--probably did.

Here's a lo I started last Sunday, finished this afternoon. First one for April.

Here are three LOs that I finished. If you look closely at the Egg Hunt LO some of you will see some familiar embellies. I took them off your cards before putting them away. I just thought that they were tooo cute to hide and I would think of this group when I looked at this LO. I hope that I didn't hurt anyone's feelings. I really thought that this would be an honor to this group.

Now, I want some citricism on these to improve them.



I think it's a fantastic idea!

Great LO, Laura.

What do you mean by "We're just trying to enlarge our scrapbooking "box." "? We have a SBing box? Where is it????

Didn't you know? Every dedicated scrapper has a box that sits on their scrapping table--the box gets bigger when they do good, gets smaller when they're bad.

I will scrap tonight...I will scrap tonight...I will scrap tonight! My scrap room is clean, I got two new Cricut cartridges, a package from sb.com , and a Cricut Tool Kit being delivered today. It's going to be a late night!!!

Also, guess what...I found out yesterday that I was chosen for an Assistant Manager job, so I start that on May 1st. It's very exciting, but nerve racking too. More responsibility.



Congrats on the new position!

OK Ladies! I didn't get much of a chance to check in over the weekend...it was the weekend of the King (DH) and he flat out exhausted me!
It looks like just about everyone got to get some scrap time in but me! Since I didn't get the challenge done for last month, I'm bound and determined to get last month's and this month's done! I finally told my DH he wasn't allowed to schedule me for anything else this month so perhaps I'll get to get some Princess time in (that's my DH's nick name for me - he thinks I'm spoiled!)

Melissa - hope you had a great birthday!

I tried to post some love to the galleries of those of you lucky enough to get some scrapping done over the weekend. Sorry if I missed anyone!
Time to get to work!

Happy Monday!
Beth

Well my little boy's last soccer game for the season is tomorrow night, so I am hoping for lots of great pics of the game. Wish I could just have Diana with me, so she could take all the action shots I need.

Beth, I hope you gets lots of princess time this month. Can't wait to see the lo's you create!

Sherrise, I am sorry to hear that your hubby was not feeling well. I hope he is on the mend. Those hubbies can be more needy than children when they are sick. Are you and everyone else doing ok otherwise? to you sweetie!!

Nicole, did you get a chance to play with your goodies??

Kell, did you have a great weekend? How was the salsa dancing. Are you soaking your feet? Come on girlie, give us some details!!

Debbie, thanks for the encouragement on the heritage page. I have a photo of my grandmother that I would love to do a page with, so I might work on that this week.

Wendy, what have you been up to lately? Have you about gotten settled into the new house?

Hi Helena!! Great to see you! I love the latest photos you posted in your gallery. Your new puppy is the cutest little furball I have seen in a while. Are your girls having fun with him?

Melissa, where are you?? So how was it turning 25 again? Now, I am not that greedy. I would just settle for repeatedly turning 35 (if I could only turn back the clock).

Well, this is a little off of scrapbooking topics, but I have resolved to try to exercise a little every day. I have exactly six months until my next vacation, and I need to lose 10 pounds. I had lost a little weight before my cruise in December, but I have gained 5 pounds of it back. Wish me luck, because I do love my carbs and sweets. I lost the weight doing a low carb diet, but unfortunately, I could not maintain it over the long term. Going to try counting calories this time instead. I am definitely soliciting suggestions here, so any advice is appreciated.

OK. Sorry for checking out for a few days, but I've been spending a lot of quality time with the boys. Now I'm scrambling to get about 20 cards done as soon as possible for gifts for a baby shower I'm co-hosting.

I got a card from Chelsea in the mail - gorgeous!

The movie was fun. It wasn't the *best* movie I'd ever seen, but I still enjoyed it. We also went to dinner at Brann's Steakhouse - I had a calorie fest while there. Got to do it sometimes, right?

Thanks for all of the birthday wishes! I'm also all caught up on the LOs. Great work, girls!

Congrats on the new job, Nicole. Uhm... I'm not sure if I missed anything else. I'm kind of trying to get all of these darn cards done! lol

Melissa, those cards are fantastic! You have been busy!!

I am afraid I haven't done much, and tonight I MUST work on the taxes. My time is running out . . . It should not take long, and it is not complicated (thanks to Turbotax), but I always hate sitting down to do it. Maybe I can work on something fun afterwards as a reward.

Hey everyone, jci, real quick. I am pooped and I can't wait to get off work.

I am going to try and pump myself up () to do some school work and some scrapping tonight, but I don't know if that's going to happen. I think I can, I think I can, right? Anyway, wish me luck.

Everyone have a great night!!
