Still nothing...

I know....but soon I hope! We should hopefully be in our new house this weekend and after we get settled I can start unpacking all of my scrappy stuff and start to create! I have really been missing it and hopefully my creative juices will be ready to jump back into it!

I did make a couple flowerpots (with the kids help) for their teachers for the end of the year. And we made a big one for Papa (my father-in-law) for his birthday. The kids either did handprints or footprints around it. I need to redo C.J.'s since they somehow got rubbed off. I'm going to add some fingerprint butterflies and what not to it too. Then I need to put some sort of finish on it, so that it won't wash or rub off.

I'm pathetic!!

Okay, I really haven't scrapped anything lately. I have altered some things for gifts and what not, but it's been quite a while since I've done an actual layout. Truth is we are still living with family. The good news is that hubby is here now, has a job, and we bought a house! We have been remodling it for the past couple months and it is looking really good! I would love to eventually replace all of the carpet, but we just don't have the money for that right now. So we'll have t do that little by little. Now the great news is that our stuff is coming tomorrow!! So as soon as we get unpacked and settled I can hopefully get back into a scrapping groove! So hopefully soon I will have pictures of my work up to show!

Whew! I tell you, trying to find time to scrap with 5 kids takes some work! But I was finally able to whip one out. I'm hoping to get some more done too, but we'll see when I'll get around to that! Especially since I am fighting off a cold and one of my little guys have gotten it too! Trying to nip it all in the bud though before it gets bad. So here's the LO I did, it's using 3 Bugs in a Rug products and I followed their August/September sketch...gotta love those sketches!

It's been a while!

Whew! What a month it has been over here! I haven't been doing much scrapping lately...having a new baby kind of takes up any extra time you have (LOL! Not that I had a ton anyways!) I'm hoping once everyone gets back on some sort of schedule that I'll be able to do some scrapping again. I know I have a ton of pics to choose from! I did do a couple LO's earlier this month before the baby arrived and I just now got around to getting pictures of them and uploading them here! They are for the 3 Bugs in a Rug June/July contest. Oh and I also got my prize from 3Bugs in a Rug today for winning the May sketch contest! I'm loving all the new goodies they sent me and can't wait to break into them and create! I also finally gave the lady the altered purse and mini album (well actually my mom delivered it for me). I need to go in sometime and negotiate my fee with her...but according to my mom she absolutely loved it and almost started crying. So it looks like I can pretty much get anything I want...could really use a massage about now! LOL! She also showed it around to people in the salon, so who knows....maybe I'll be getting some orders! Though right now I don't know when I would do it! So anyways, it has been a very crazy month...I wonder what next month will entail! :)

Toot Toot!!!

I just recieved my 3 Bugs in a Rug Newsletter for June/July and saw that the layout I did of Jaxon on the slide won their sketch contest!! How cool is that!! Can't wait to get my goodies in the mail! The one thing I love about scrap challenges is that not only do you get a chance to win something it also inspires you to create a LO that you really it's pretty much a win win situation!

Altered Purse and Mini Albums Pics

Here are the rest of the pictures from the altered purse and 2 mini albums I did. The first mini album says Family and the second one says Ties. I painted the chipboard first and than sanded it down a bit, then just added the PP, pics, embellies and quotes and than inked the edges.

I finished!!!

I finally finished up the project I was working on for my very first commission! I think it turned out really well and I'm pretty pleased with it...the pictures don't do it much justice, I think it looks much better in person...but than what doesn't! So after 10 hours of work and about $65 worth is supplies, it is done! Now it's time to barter for what she owes me for doing it, since we decided to just trade services (she does alot of spa treatments, such as massages, pedi's, mani's, facials, etc....). I altered a chipboard purse and then made two chipboard mini books that insert perfectly into the purse. All the patterned paper(PP) is from Basic Grey's "Scarlett Letter" line (which I think fits Bobbie (the lady I did it for) to a tee! Than I used paint, ribbon, sequins, prima flowers, brads, crystals, glitter, ink, and vellum quotes, etc.... to embellish it. Most of the supplies I used (except for the PP) came from walmart, target and JoAnn's. I think she will be really happy with it! If not then I will just take out her pictures and put my own in and keep it for myself! LOL! In fact I might just have to make another one for myself anyways! Here are some pictures of the altered purse, I will post pics of the mini albums a bit to get my little guy down for a nap and he sleeps where the computer is at!
