I'm back!!! LOL! just a couple of LO's to share. i've had this LO's done earlier this month. this first one was for the Valentine blog hop we had over at SKETCHES4ALL. just something simple using my stash of BASICGREY papers. i remember the challenge was to use 14 hearts in your LO. i had fun cutting all the hearts and making my own corrugated alpha the letter "i" using starbucks coffee sleeve/holder. this next one was for the DT sketch reveal. Fia provided us with one of Liz Qualman's beautiful sketch. this was a mix of bits and pieces of whats left on my November NOOK kit filled with COSMO CRICKET and i was ale to use some of my old stash including the beautiful vintage paper i used as my base and the felt flowers are MARTHA STEWART that i bought at Big Lots for a dollar a set. that is it for me tonight because i have tons and tons of LO's i need to finish. it is going to be another sleepless night LOL! speaking of sleepless , i feel like watching my all time fave movie Sleepless in Seattle. Goodnight friends! thanks again for stopping by.

P.S. i cannot believe this is my 200th post!!!


hi there! it's me again LOL! i have three LO's that i finished awhile back and i'll be sharing them with you tonight. so here is the first one using NIKI SIVILS TREE LOVE collection. i am loving the warm colors of this collection and the beaver is just too darn cute! here is my LO- some close-ups
this is my dear son, Justin, on our camping trip last April 2010 and he'd been asking us when are we going camping again. i told him in summer because my bones cannot take the cold air LOL!

hi there it's me again! i'm back with a new LO inspired by NIKKI SIVIL'S January challenge- to do projects about goals or resolutions. this LO is also for ARTASTIC February challenge with this months inspiration coming from Venus at her Toilet by Pieter Paul Rubens with diva demand for an extra 6 bonus points- the LO must be about YOU!, add wings somewhere on your layout (i made the wings on my heart on the left corner of my photo), use a mirror image or use the same picture of YOU multiple times which i think i got all of them in my LO. i also submitted this LO to my co-DT MITSUE for her February cahllenge over at SKETCHES4ALL. click HERE for the full challenge detail. i made this LO about my goal this year which is to love myself more- like taking care of my health, believing in myself more, accept me as me and try to stay true to myself. i just realized that it's becoming more often now that i take myself for granted. so hopefully this year will be different. here is my LO using NIKKI SIVIL's Sugar Cookie collection- another great collection of papers and embellishment from NIKKI SIVIL's. i love how whimsical and fun this collection is. believe me i am not a big fan of color pink but with the mix of purples and browns i enjoyed creating with this papers. i'm back to work today and later tonight when i get home i need to finish up some DT assignment. it's the last week of the month so it's going to be a busy, busy week with lots of scrapping fun.
have a wonderful day and God bless. thanks for stopping by.

I've been trying to do lots of cleaning and keeping our place organized and all. this LO is inspired by SKETCHY THURSDAY's MARCH GDT challenge-in addition to using the sketch they provided, they ask to include the color Pink & Green or Red & Turquoise, Hearts, a list about something/someone you love on the layout. here is my take and i think i covered all the requirements-
some close-ups

i used some of my BasicGrey stash together with more of my WHAT IS OLD IS NEW BOY KIT. this photo was taken just last month, my three boys (including the hubby LOL!) are having too much goofing around. i wanted to do some journaling about what i love about my DH and decide to use the journaling as a border too, it's a list of things that i love about him. that's about it for me today. gotta go to work again in a couple hours. have a great day! God bless.
