New Blog

So my whores finally made a blog, it's called We Scrap Better. It's a place for us to check each other's work out and of course to meet new people because blogging is where it is right now lol. The first inspiration is to do a lift that was based on ANTM advertisement I believe. Here's my take on the lift. Everyone don't forget to check out our blog and please feel free to participate. I really like how this LO turned out too. It's just perfect (plus I'm a little narcissistic cause I just LOVE my picture).

I scanned the LO, Kelly are you proud of me now LOL. It's slightly miscolored when I added them but I'll work on that for the next time for now this will have to do since it's almost midnight and I'm tired as hell.

Stack Galore

Here are a couple LO's I worked on tonight. Very simple but I like them regardless lol. I'm trying to get rid of some stack paper. Well honestly I'm trying to get rid of all stack paper so I need to abuse and use all the paper I have before I can buy anything. Fun, I know but hey it's got to be done otherwise how am I going to save money and get rid of product that I've had sitting on those shelves for years probably and most definitely months! Thanks for checking out my stuff. I'm freezing, it's late and I'm totally ready to go to bed.

Organization part II

Well it's going good. I'm getting there I should be done by this weekend. Only thing I can't finish is transferring all the Lo's to d-ring binders because well I just didn't buy enough. I might need about 7 more LOL. I originally only bought 4. Next time I have a little bit of extra cash I could definitely get that done. Crosses fingers again. But I did get a lot done. I redid all my ribbon into containers by color. I separated a LOT of brads into baby jars by colors (I still have about two other organizer boxes of brads to get organized). And odds and ends here but it's looking good. I even put a picture frame up of my whores that I love. man I had so much fun scrapping today. You never realize how much that time alone when your significant other is out of the house and working is so necessary for you. because when he's here I just can't seem to get anything done because he's always in the way but when he's not around I get sooo much done and my daughter gets to sleep at a decent time instead of whenever because he's too busy playing with her. I think that's the longest run on sentence I've ever made hahaa. Anywho grammar police please stay away lol. Hope everyone had a great Easter, I know Isabella had a great time opening all her Easter baskets and hunting for eggs. Here's a couple pictures of her. She's too adorable sometimes.

This is Isabella at the Van Winkle House with Mr. Bunny. She was only semi scared lol.

This is her in her Easter dress, I had to put a shirt under it because let's face it .. it's only pretend Spring because it's still pretty cold outside lol.

Some of her many baskets. I wish I had that many when I was her age. I usually only got one but not her, she gets one from everyone.

Hunting for eggs around the living room. Everyone was throwing eggs in her basket to get the her with the flow. But could you believe even with everyone helping her she still didn't get the most eggs. She even had the biggest basket to pick eggs in, oh well there's always next year!

LO just for FUN

Just because I wanted to work these colors to begin with, here's the first LO I did tonight and had fun with it. I didn't use anyone for inspiration just kind of went with the flow and was very happy with the outcome.


The new challenge at Scrapdragons is to get inspiration from a CD cover. I don't usually buy cd's I usually just listen to whatever I can find on the radio (I love music though cause the radio is always on lol) so it was hard to find the perfect cover. Then I saw this R Kelly cover, and I love ALL his albums. I think I could remember what I was doing and where I was in almost all of his songs. Here's my take on the album cover and below is the album cover itself. As you can tell very very simple but fun none the less.

Scrapping the Music

Another great challenge with great lyrics. Scrappin the Music's challenge this week is "The Story" by Brandie Carlile. Great lyrics .. I chose the line I was made for you. Thought this was a great line because Kirk is always telling me how if it wasn't for me he wouldn't be where he is now, so I was made for him to help better himself. Does that make sense lol. Anyways here's my LO.

It's the hardest thing for me to accomplish because I'm a Gemini and have a very short attention span. So when something as big a project as organizing my scrap area comes into play and is a necessary evil (oh and now I KNOW it has to be done by Sunday the latest) it's really hard for me to complete. I get bored, I get frustrated, I get annoyed and I have no help. I'm a big baby I wish I could snap my fingers and it would go exactly the way I want it to go. I think my designated scrap storage area has been a tremendous disaster for well over a week and everyone is getting on me to get it completed. I'm trying, I really am. But it's soooo hard! I need to hire an organizer lol. i work on it for like half an hour maybe an hour and just get bored with it and move on to something else. Tonight I vow to go straight home and get to fixing everything. I will do it! (Someone pray for me haha).

Another one 4 Tonight

Again I used up products from the kit from Heather's store that Kelly made. I just tried to use it all up as quickly as possible. I really need to get a handle on all this product I have and bring back the old skool paper and use it up. And learn to throw away scraps lol.

Gettin Sketchy

Here's my entry for Gettin Sketchy. I got this kit in the mail from one of my friend's shop Heather. Some of the girls were making up kits for the future for her girls to buy and maybe sellf them at her store. Kelly made a kit up using stuff that Heather already had in her store and I got it in the mail today and just had to use it up. I think they came out really colorful and it was fun working with this sketch and this product. Thanks for checking out my stuff.

I've been tagged by my wonderful friend Kristi, thanks girl.

* Share 7 facts about yourself on your blog, some random, some weird.
* Tag 7 people at the end of your post by leaving their names as well as links to their blogs.
* Let them know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.

1. I sincerely hate my job the majority of the time, mainly because I don't know if I'm going to be there much longer because I don't know how much longer it's going to stay in business.
2. I'm nervous about having another kid, not because of the whole pregnancy thing but because of the financial aspect of it.
3. Sometimes I like to take the long way home, just because I'm just not ready to get home and deal with everything.
4. I won't get married because I don't want to get divorced.
5. When I was five my mother had just gotten her drivers license and had the crappiest car on earth with really heavy doors. Well when she picked me up from school I would get in the passenger seat and I guess I couldn't close the door all the way and sure enough when my mother would pull away I almost fell out of the car (more than once) so from this day on I don't sit too close to the door if I could help it.
6. I have about 400 dvds, I've watched sooo many movies that I almost feel that pretending to be in a movie is more exciting than my own life ... does that make sense?
7. i wish my hair was straight ... it's really hard to manage my hair, like really and just not fun.

Okay so here's who I tag
"Valley Girl
Happy Amy

Chevy's Dinner

Here are two Lo's I did from the pictures I took at dinner the other day when we went to celebrate my uncles birthday. They gave us a free sombrero when they sang happy birthday. Gotta love free stuff and of course Mexican food hehe.

Pencil Lines

When I saw the sketch for Pencil Lines I knew that it was just up my ally. I had an entirely different idea for this but then when I sat down to start it I went a completely different route on the subject matter. I found these pictures just sitting around and thought it was time to scrap them. Just me being silly with my hot shades and kirk being himself.


The One Little Word challenge this time around is ... time. Something that most of us have so little of, it is probably one of the most precious things we have in this life other than the people we love. Time is what makes this world go around. When I thought of the word the first thing I thought of is how Time flies. How my daughter will already be 2 this year. It's crazy because I still remember her as this tiny little thing in my arms when she first came home from the hospital. I miss those days, maybe it's time to start thinking about the second one.

Scrapping the Music

So I was checking out Scrapping the Music challenge blog and realized that it was one of my favorite songs, I've heard it in movies before I believe it was Love & Basketball (correct me if I'm wrong). And it was at an emotional point that much I remember, so hearing the song really brought out emotion in me and there is one line in this song that really made me think of something personal I'm going through right now with my family. It just really fit perfectly.
