Free class!!!

Sunday, October 26, 2008

Hello all! In case you don't read Jessica Spragues Blog or have been to her website lately... she is having a FREE class - check it out - she is a DigiScrapper genius and I've taken 4 classes off her website... LOVE them all!!! I still need to finish the last one :) I am not sure if I will actually do the project of this class as it seems you will need to tell stories and I am horrible at that. BUT.. I am sure I will learn something :) So, join in on the free class and have a blast!!!

Moving Book

Saturday, October 25, 2008

So... as most of you know we are moving :) DH and I are very excited... our house is pending on a sale - so cross your fingers!!! Anyways, DH and I were compiling all our "moving documents" and notes on multiple pieces of scrappaper etc and I figured I'd just make us a little notebook :) Isn't it cute?

Cookie Layout

Wednesday, October 22, 2008

I made a scrapbook page today!!! This is from last year when my mom, sister and I made cookies at my parents house... I am going to miss that this year if we move before Christmas (crossing my fingers!). In this layout - that I am adding to my Christmas Album - I used Creative Imaginations background paper (Sweet Tooth & Rolling Pins), Sweet tooth sticker sheet (lots left), CTMH Chocolate Cardstock, CTMH White Bigger Brad and Thickers Chipboard letter for the title {COOKIES}. Enjoy! P.S. I have leftover paper and stickers... anybody want to come get them???

More Halloween Cards!

Monday, October 20, 2008

Not sure why I am in the creepy Halloween mood... but I am being drawn to this new stamp set - Creepy Cobwebs! Here I used all CTMH product. Black, Daisy white and Hydrangea cardstock. Black, Sunflower, Goldrush and Autumn Terracotta ink. The Creepy Cobwebs stamp set and the Say it in Style stamp set with a little bling on the cobwebs! I got this idea off one of my fellow CTMH blogger's - there is such creativity out there - thank you for the inspiration!!! Enjoy :)

Wow - it was a long week! Now the weekend is almost over... Yesterday we celebrated my DH's parents - Jerry & Gloria's 50th Wedding Anniversary! Their anniversary isn't until December but they wanted to have to party before all the holiday excitement started :) The party turned out wonderful, I think everyone had a good time - there was LOTS of dancing going on! Here are a few pictures from the evening...

Its October and like 18 days till Halloween :) Have you picked out your costume yet?

I needed a little time alone in my studio tonight and wanted to make something fun. I got this idea off a blog somewhere ( I think it was LUXE ) last year and knew I wanted to make one of these before Halloween. I found the perfect frame at Hobby Lobby last week when I was in GA - yes, I will have a HL within 15 minutes of my new house (if the deal goes thru!)!!! So, tonight this is what I made...

I used the Rusty Pickle Adamms Family paper from last year, the alphabet letters are from the CTMH Friendship Stamp set(the promotion stamp set last month - I do have 2 sets of them for sale if you are interested :) Also, the spider web stamped in the background is CTMH from an awesome new set called Creepy Cobwebs. I hope to make a few cards with this stamp set soon too... Enjoy!

6x6 Accordian Album

Time for some artwork... I really meant for this blog to showcase the artwork/stamping/scrapbooking projects that I do, but lately it seems to be an outlet to share pictures from family get togethers or adventures of some sort :) Sorry for the lack of artwork!!!

I made this CTMH 6x6 Accordian Album a few weeks ago. My friend Margaret in Iowa was getting married and I wanted to make her something handmade... 6x6 album was perfect and since I had 2 of them I decided to make one for myself too! I haven't added pictures yet but I think I am going to do pictures from our wedding :) So, here is what I made minus the pictures.

Saturday & Sunday

Sunday, October 5, 2008

It was a great weekend! We could have not asked for better weather... seems its going to get colder this week also :) We looked at new property again yesterday, the subdivision we liked didn't have anymore basement models available but we wanted to look at additional floorplans so we did some driving to other subdivisions by the same builder to see them, fun times. I did end up liking a different model - that was actually the cheapest, LOL! Then last night we had dinner with my cousins Jade and Jessica and her DH T.J. then after the worst service EVER at Applebees we went to my other cousin Chrissy's house that I haven't seen in years and visited with her and her DH Nathan - it was a nice evening. I can't wait to move up here! This morning we had a slow start but drove around a few other neighborhoods... then went on a boat ride - my uncle Mark has a huge Pontoon boat - so 10 of us headed out for a ride and had some yummy hotdogs on the grill we cooked on the boat :) I only took the little camera on the boat and it didn't seem to take any good pictures today probably because of the sun and I didn't have any good angles... anyways here is one with my 2 favorite cousins that I love dearly!!!

Tomorrow (Monday) I will be heading out with a realtor to look at some existing properties... wish me luck!

House Hunting Trip #1

Friday, October 3, 2008

So... we drove up to GA on Thursday (after spending $900 on the Liberty, UGH!) to start our house hunting process :) We are having such beautiful weather so far, low 80's today and like 60's tonight = perfect (IMO), LOL! Anyways, today we looked at 6-7 new subdivisions, they started running together after 3-4 since some are similar... all I can say is thank goodness you get more house for your money here! The question is how much house do I actually want to clean instead of how much house can I afford, lol. We found one community here in Cumming that we really like and actually my cousin and her DH are hoping to move into the same community next year. They have so many floorplans to choose from and they are huge, like 4 & 5 bedrooms!!! So, we are going to go back tomorrow and look at the smaller models then we can afford to put in a basement instead of having an extra bedroom/bath, not all the lots have a basement so we have to see what is available, etc. Here are a few pictures of 2 of the models from this subdivision - nice huh? Still need to sell our house, we did get an offer this week BUT it was absolutely way too low!!!! I hope we have another offer soon :) Have a great weekend!
