My Scrapbook Nook March Kit

It is filled with gorgeous new My Mind's Eye Miss Caroline Collection.  Feast your eyes on this...
This is the sweet and cheerful Dolled up collection, complete with pins, buttons, twine, rub-ons, and a wood veneer butterfly.  Paired together with Petaloo flowers, and American Crafts alphas.  Isn't it just gorgeous.  And there's more...a coordinating grab bag
full of buttons, alphas, flowers, and more
This fabulous mini kit is FREE to new kit subscribers.  And it's only $10 for current subscribers, plus it ships free with your monthly kit.  If you're interested in getting one for yourself you can see all the details here.

On another note I have a scrappy secret that I've been keeping from you.  Actually I have two.  I can't even believe it.  I feel so blessed to be getting these opportunities, I'm giddy with excitement.  Both of them came from women I have high regard for in the scrappy world, and for who they are as women.  It is such an honor to have them request my scrappy capabilities.  Here is a sneak peek at one of the layouts
 I can't wait to reveal the rest of it to you.  I don't think it will be too long before I'm able to let you in on the secrets, you'll just need to hang tight for a little while longer.

Have a great day.  Thanks so much for stopping by today.

So Alike

Have I mentioned how in love with the new My Mind's Eye Collection I am?  The papers are so versatile, and fun, with soft muted colours, yum.  I used yet another one to create a layout celebrating the similarities between Darwin and his father.  Years ago people would say how alike they looked, I didn't really see it then, to be honest.  Lately, however I've been seeing it more and more.  Not just in the physical traits either, but in the way they laugh, and what they joke about.  The way they both sit in their respective recliners to watch television, and other little, everyday ways.  This shot was taken at the airport while waiting for our plane to Orlando.  I had the camera pointed in their direction, from behind, and asked them to turn around so I could get a photo of them, and voila, there it was again: that same look on both of their faces. 
MME Follow Your Heart papers, and embellies
Looking at this photo still makes me laugh.  I'm glad that these two have a good relationship.  It doesn't happen often, but D will even call his dad on occasion just to chit chat.  No, I'm not kidding.  I love that he does that.  Their relationship gives my girls a standard to strive for when choosing their respective mates.  I am blessed to have two gentle, humble, loving, caring, funny, sweet guys in my life.  Here's hoping you have a few good men in your life too.

Have a wonderful day friends,

Scraplift Chain Challenge Reveal

We just completed a month long Scraplift Chain Challenge over at My Scrapbook Nook.  This time there were 5 teams with six players each.  It was another fun round, with some gorgeous creations created along the way.  I was lucky enough to have my layout chosen as the original layout to start off the round for each team.  Here's just a little taste of how my team evolved.

Original layout
Miranda's was directly before me in the chain, here's her layout.
Remember, the way this works is that the scrapper only sees the layout that they're sent through private message.  Although I knew that one of my layouts had been chosen as the original layout, I had no idea which one it was.  All I had to go on was Miranda's layout.  Here's the layout I created using hers as my guide. 
Using Echo Park This & That Line
You'll see that I kept a lot of the same elements that she had, but switched them around just a little to suit my personal taste.  This layout celebrates the relationship I have with my mother-in-law.  It documents our meeting through her son, (my now husband), through our engagement, and wedding, to her relationship with my three girls.  I really like that the simple design keeps the focus on the photo and the story behind the layout.

If you'd like to see the entire group reveal.  Pop over to the Nook reveal thread and check it out.  Marinette did a wonderful job organizing, and keeping the chain moving.  The participants did a wonderful job creating some really stunning layouts along the way.  Thanks again to everyone for playing along.

Remember, I'd love to organize a private Scraplift Chain Challenge here on my blog.  I have two eager scrappers ready to go, and would love at least 3 or 4 more to make it a little more interesting.  Just let me know in the comments if you're up for the fun.

Thanks for popping by today.  Hope your week is off to a great start.

Right now

all about me, right now...
My Top 9 in no particular order at this point in time are: sunshine, chocolate,football, dancing, family, sushi, coffee, movies w/D, and singing.  It's a short concise list, but something I think my girls will appreciate in years to come, getting a glimpse of what makes me tick.

The idea for this layout came from Nicole over at The Nook.  She issued a challenge to create a layout inspired by quilts.  You can see her post here.  Now, I must confess, I don't quilt shocker, I know, but the first thing that came to my mind was hexagons created out of random pieces of paper.  After completing the layout, it occurred to me that maybe I got quilts mixed up with afghans.  I went on a hunt in Google to see if I was off my rocker, and discovered these images.
source 1  source 2  source 3
So it looks like maybe I was on the right track after all. This layout took me outside of my box, and I enjoyed it.  That's one of the great things about the Nook kit club.  Some months the product is right up my ally, and the kit practically scraps itself, other months,  as much as I may love all the pretty paper, and cute little embellishments I just can't seem to put a layout together.  That's where the forum and the fabulous DT over at the Nook come in.  Every month there are classes, and/or challenges to spark the creativity, and get the mojo flowing.  Then it's all up to you.  You're free to lift the card and/or layout, or simply use it as an inspiration piece.  Thanks Nic for creative jump start. 

As always I really appreciate that you took the time to visit my corner of the world.  Have a wonderful week friends,

A Disney layout

We have so many Disney photos, that it was a little overwhelming knowing where to start when it came to scrapping them.  I'm still thinking that a mini-album would be the best way to showcase the trip and record all the memories, and have the kids take park in the journaling.  For now, I've managed to at least get some highlights down on a two-pager.  It highlights all the places we saw, and all of us who got see them.

The journaling reads:
It was a dream come true, something I've wanted to do since I was a child.  Getting to experience Disney World with Mom & Dad included was more than I could have dreamed, honestly.  The Winter of 2012 the dream became a reality, as we pulled the kids from school and flew down to Orlando for 6 days of fun.  First stop (1) Magic Kingdom (Isabelle wanted roller coasters not Mickey Mouse).  There's no other way to begin a Disney adventure really.  The most fun was had at (2) Universal Studios, and (3) Islands of Adventure, where we met Shrek & the gang (4), and saw the dinosaurs of Jurassic Park.  We all agree that Universal & Islands were the best for fun factor with the (5) Rip Rocket roller coaster being a fave.  We hit Animal Kingdom (6&7) on the last and warmest of days.  Expedition Everest was a blast, along with the Safari where we  saw gorillas and hippos.  I love the  photo of Mom and Dad in front of the iconic tree.  (8)Epcot was another fave, as there was something for everyone, and the character greetings (9) and the fireworks were so cool.  So much fun.  From Magic Kingdom (10) Buzz Lightyear to Everst and everything in between.  Memories for a lifetime were made @ Disney.

If you have been thinking about getting away with the family, but are hesitant on it for whatever reason, I encourage you to revisit the idea.  It was so worth it.  Worth the hour and a half drive to the airport, worth the financial pinch, worth the infinite amount of U turns we took on our way to and from the park everyday, and definitely worth the tired feet at the end of the day.  It gave us time to unplug from the routine and pressures of everyday life here at home.  It allowed my kids to enjoy their father as the fun-loving, joking, playmate they only see from time to time.  It allowed us to enjoy some time alone with Mom, and Dad in a way that's different and more relaxed than when one of us is 'hosting' the other.  We love our life here at home.  The girls really enjoy Dance, and love spending time with their friends at the studio several days a week.  They like school, have wonderful teachers, and are learning, and developing so nicely this year.  We have a fun, and loving Small Group (5 families) with whom we meet every other week to talk about God, life, church, and the everyday things of life.  All that is great, but we are increasingly aware that if we don't make time to just hang together we will lose the connection that makes us friends as well as family, appreciating the fun quirky idiosyncrasies that make us each who we are.  Who knows, time away, as a family may be just what you and yours need also.

Nikki Sivils - take one

Yesterday I shared with the you the February Sketch/Technique Challenge over at Scrapping Everyday Miracles.  Today I'll show you the original layout I did with the same photo and product.

When I first opened the My Lil' Monster line, the first photo that came to mind to use for my layout was one I had taken just a few days prior.  It's a photo of my two youngest girls with their cousin Jayden.  My brother and his wife make some pretty cute babies, I think you'd agree.  This kid is so delightful.  He enters the room, and it's like the lights have been turned up to their brightest capacity.  He's sweet, funny, handsome, loving, and going to be a great catch for some lucky young lady in about 30 or 40 years *giggle*.  I adore him to pieces - we all do.  Here's the original creation with the Nikki Sivils product.
I had to bribe Jayden with cookies to get him to sit still for this shot :)
It was only after I had completed the journaling that I remembered the layout was intended for use with the sketch challenge.  The primary requirement for a sketch challenge, is to use the actual sketch, go figure.  This looked nothing like the sketch.  There was no way I could use this layout on the Scrapping Everyday Miracles Blog.  No biggie, I figured since I had so much product (thanks to the generous Ms. Sivils), I would simply create a second layout for the site.  I love this design.  Some of the elements are popped off the page. How cute are those little banners?  I'm hoping to lift it for use with another line I have in mind.  A big thank you to Nikki for generously sponsoring SEM this month and pulling me a little outside my box with these bold beautiful colours.

Have a great day friends,

Sketch Challenge

Before I get down to business I want to say a huge thank you to each of you for your sweet words of encouragement and congratulations on my guest spot over at Creative Scrappers.  Your comments mean the world to me.

Nicole is up with a sketch/technique challenge today.  We were fortunate enough to have Niki Sivils graciously sponsor us, and therefore had the opportunity to work with her fun and colourful product.  She sent us so much product, that we each got an entire line to work with.  The line I chose is called My Lil' Monster.  It's super cute.

Here is the sketch we worked with.

Here is my layout
This, is my two youngest, and my ham of a nephew, Jayden,
Nicole also has a technique for you this month.  See those cute little flags on the sketch?  You can learn how to make your own, as she takes you through it.  Up for grabs this month will be an assortment of Nikki Sivils product.  Hop over here to check out the post on the blog.  Check the side bar if you're interested in participating in the monthly challenge, for a second chance at the prize pack, and also the chance to win a spot in this month's top 3 layouts.

As a bonus this month we are also hosting a giveaway on our Facebook Page.  Some of the DT made several projects with the Nikki Sivils paper, and we wanted a way to showcase them best.  Here's the deal, by checking out the page, and commenting on the projects shared you'll be entered for a second chance to win a second set of Nikki goodies we have up for grabs.  You can see the album here.   I hope you get a chance to pop by.

Tomorrow I'll share with you the original layout I made with this line and the same photo.  I'll also fill you in on why that happened.

Thanks for stopping by today.  If you link up with Scrapping Everyday Miracles be sure to let me know.

Creative Scrappers Sketch #196

I am thrilled to be this week's featured designer over at Creative Scrappers.  I was thrilled to receive the request from Kristine back in January.  That was a huge secret to have to hold on to.  Although I didn't make the team this time around, I  am so happy to be able to join them, even if it's just for a week.  Sketch #196 goes live today.  It is another fabulous creation by fellow 'Pegger Nicole Nowosad.  For this  one I was able to brake out the paints I purchased just before Christmas, for the first time.  I am so glad I did, as I'm not sure how I would have created the look otherwise.  Here's the sketch.
And here is my take on it.
Using Studio Calico's November kit
I want to thank Kristine and her team once again, for having me.  I enjoyed the experience very much, and hope that our paths will cross again in the future.  You can see my introduction, and the full design team reveal here.

Happy Sunday friends, may a great week be in store for each of you,

On the Bright Side

Another layout with the wonderful new My Mind's Eye to share with you.  This is my mother and father in law in front of the statuesque landmark of a tree in the center of Animal Kingdom at Walt Disney world.  I couldn't tell you the last photo we have with the two of them together.  Even this one had to be begged and pleaded for. It was such a wonderful opportunity we had to discover the wonder of Disney World with them there with us.  They aren't much for any of the rides, but that did work out well for the rest of us roller coaster junkies, as there was always someone available to hold the bags. I thought they were nuts to want to travel all that way, and spend all that money on park admissions only to sit there.  What I came to realize, however, was that they weren't just sitting there.  To them, this was an opportunity to spend some quality time with their grandkids (and kids).  To see them discover the wonder of Disney, and to take in the sights and sounds of Florida, a much different landscape than their usual day to day view.  It was just as much a holiday for them as it was for us.  For them, there were just a few less terrifying, breath taking moments, having skipped each and every roller coaster.  We all hope we get  to experience something similar together soon.  Perhaps even my sister-in-law and her family will join us the next time around.

♫ Sweet Caroline ♪ ♪

One of the best parts about working at a scrapbook store is getting to work with brand new product as soon as it arrives in the store.  The brand spanking new My Mind's Eye arrived the other day, and boy is it ever gorgeous.  So far I've had a chance to work with two of the lines in the Miss  Caroline Collection (which I call Sweet  Caroline  because I get that old Neil Diamond song in my head whenever I see the name) 

Here's a layout I created using Howdy Doody.

You may recognize the photos as I've scrapped them before.  Here's a prime example of my impatience.  I knew what design I wanted my page to be and need three small photos  to use.  These were the first ones I found.  They matched, I love the story they tell, and I love the two women in the photos very much.  Done, that's what I used, despite having used them before.  Have you ever done the same?

My scrap room has looked like a bomb went off the past couple of days as I've been working on a mini album (a gift for my grandmother).  It was nothing special really, just some dollar store albums with pictures, and a few embellies here and there.  It had to travel to Barbados, which is pricy on it's own.  Keeping the project light helped to keep cost down.  In the end it still ended up costing $37 to ship it, but I know that's a small price to pay for the smile it is going to put on her face.  She'll be celebrating her 90th birthday at the end of the month.  I wish my mother was still alive to celebrate with her, that would have been so wonderful.  I've also got imitation dog hair everywhere, as I've been working on a costume for Eden (she's playing a dog in an upcoming school play).  As I only use my sewing machine on paper, the site is quite comical.  I think the costume will turn out okay though, at least I sure hope so.  The Alice in Wonderland costume that Théa needs, however is a whole other matter entirely.  I need professional help on that one.

It finally my turn to lift the layout above me over at The Nook Scraplift Challenge, I'll be sure to let you know when the reveal occurs, I can't wait to get started on it.  I'd like to do a private one here on my blog.  I know a few of you said you would be interested if I ever did decide to host one.  Leave me a comment letting me know if you're still up for it and I'll organize one for next month.  It is so much for.  Like the game telephone, only with scrap goodies instead.

I'm off for now, but thanks for stopping by today friends,

Sketch #189

Thank you all for your well wishes to me regarding the Creative Scrappers design team.  I did not make the cut, however, again.  It's getting embarrassing already, as this is the 3rd, or maybe even 4th time I've applied for them.  There's obviously something that is holding me back  from being included.  The official list has not yet been released, so I don't yet know if any of my scrappy friends have made it, but I am really hoping some of us have some good news to share with us this week.

Here is one of layouts I submitted for the call, based on sketch #189.  I loved this sketch, it was very much my style.

Using Studio Calico's January Kit, and some bits from my stash
I have several layouts on the back burner waiting to share with you later this week, as well as a couple of scrappy secrets dying to come out, so it's all good, the rejection hasn't killed me.  In fact this time I am really at peace with it, and know that so much about being chosen has to do with so much that is out of my control. 

Thanks for stopping by today.  Hope there's a great week in store for each of you.

Western Romance

I had a lot of fun working with this line by Webster's Pages the other day.  I had these photos of Théa from this summer, and when I saw this paper I knew they would be a perfect match.  It had been so long since I scrapped however, that this page took me a ridiculously long time to finish, and it's not even 'all that'.  Does that happen to you too?  It's funny, but when I'm away from it for a week or so I take forever to find my groove again.

I only picked up a few sheets of this paper, but after finishing this layout I still had enough left to complete another layout, so I completed this one of my mother in law.

I submitted this one for Challenge number 9 over at My Scrapbook Nook, to use at least 10 words as a title.
For Christmas, my sister-in-law and her family thought it would be funny to prank my mother-in-law.  They gave her a mouse in a jar, wrapped in a pretty Christmas bag.  This woman hates mice with a passion, but you'd never know it by looking at this photo.  Rather than screaming her head off, she simply laughed about it.  She couldn't stop laughing actually, which of course we know is really a sign of nervousness.  She was such a good sport about it though.  I bet she was quite the prankster as a  young person.  This is probably my favorite photo of her, candid, genuine, and a glimpse into her fun and carefree side.

The official DT list for Creative Scrappers will be revealed today.  I haven't heard from Kristine, so I doubt I'll be seeing my name on that list. I feel completely at peace about it though.  That's a nice change from the nerves, and anxiety I usually feel.  I really hope, that even if I don't, one of my friends makes the team.  I know so many talented scrappers, that it always makes me happy to see them do well.

I'm off to a crop tonight.  Should be interesting, as I haven't got any photos ready to go, nor do I know what I'll be scrapping.  My Nook February kit finally arrived, though, so I'm really hoping to dig into that.  I'm really looking forward to spending time with my sweet scrappy bud, and her girlfriends.  If you're looking for a scrappy project or two this weekend there's always Challenge #13 over at Scrapping Everyday Miracles, or the New Year Crop at My Scrapbook Nook.

Have a great weekend friends, and thanks for stopping by.

The Liebster Award

I met a very talented card maker recently.  To say she's talented may actually be an understatement.  Her name is Jody.  She lives here in the Winnipeg, and came into the Scrapbook Cottage where I work a few weeks ago to pick up supplies for an upcoming class she'll be teaching.  I checked out her blog after meeting her, and was amazed at her gorgeous card creations.  Wouldn't you know it just a little while later I see her layout on the My Mind's Eye blog as an honorable mention for their latest challenge.  She's got talent coming out the wazoo.  This same Jody is not only talented but also very sweet, as she has nominated my lil' ol' blog for the Liebster award.  
Liebster, is German for 'dearest' or 'beloved' but it can also mean 'favorite'
The idea of the Liebster award is to bring attention to blogs with fewer than 200 followers.  Thank you so much Jody for your vote.  I encourage you, dear reader, to pop by her blog Creative Authority and leave her some love on my behalf.  I promise you it's worth the visit, she's got a fabulous layout, and very cute card right on her home page.
One of the conditions in accepting the award is to pass it along to five (I chose six, it was too hard to narrow it down) more blogs.  So, in the spirit of good fun I am passing this award along to the following blogs.  These ladies are all putting their hearts out there, and sharing with the world a little of their journey, from crafty to faith related, and everything in between.  I would appreciate it if you would take a quick sec to stop by and visit them.

Tara: taraleclaire
Julie: Glory Girl
Hilde: scoobies lille blog
Cassandra: Scrap Savvy Creations
Wendy: on the road to destiny
Danielle: pics and cheesecake

For those interested, the Rules are:

1. Show your thanks to the blogger who gave you the award by linking back to them.
2. Reveal your five picks for the award and let them know.
3. Post the award on your blog.
4. Bask in the love from the most supportive people on the blogshare-other bloggers.

Scrapping Everyday Miracles Challenge #13

Nicole is up today with  Challenge #13: to scrap something we're passionate about.  The obvious thing for a mother to scrap would be her family.  That was just a little too obvious for me.  After giving it some thought I decided to scrap about my desire to keep learning.  I'm passionate about growth, and not becoming stagnant in all the various areas of my life (spiritually, relationally with my hubby, and friends, in ministry, in my scrapping...everywhere)  I once read a great quote that said something along the lines of "when I leave this earth, I hope to have not one ounce of talent left.  I hope to have used it all up."  I love that quote, the idea of living life to the fullest, serving others, and embracing every opportunity is so poetic, isn't it.  The reality for me, however, for most of us in fact, is that life happens, and although we feel deeply about something, it's that very something that keeps getting shoved to the 'back burner' to accommodate the rest of life's duties.  I was nearly three years ago that I decided to break myself out of my comfort zone, and put my money where my mouth is.  I had talked to my kids about taking risks, and welcoming new opportunities in their lives, yet my life looked pretty much the same day after day.  I felt I was becoming stagnant.  It was then that I shook things up a little and welcomed some opportunities of my own to grow, and learn.  One of those areas was Dance.  I noticed that there was an Adult Tap Class offered at the studio where my kids dance.  I had watched them a few times after the Zumba class I was taking at the time, and I was intrigued.  It looked like a lot of fun.  It was a small group of women who looked to be enjoying themselves.  Needless to say, I took the plunge, joined the class, spent a few weeks catching up, and enjoyed every minute of it.  It wasn't easy at first, it's almost like learning another language, teaching your feet to move in a seemingly unnatural way.  But it did click, eventually.  Fast forward to this year, where I am now a member of the Kick It Cougars (as they call themselves), an Adult Competitive Tap Class.  It's a ton of fun, good exercise, with a fabulous, and fun teacher, and an equally fun assistant, where laughter is guaranteed in every class.  Sure, I still struggle, and I'll never, ever be able to do a 'pick-up', never mind a 'syncopated pick up'.  But I did what I set out to do.  I put myself out there, to grow and learn, and I continue to do so.  I chose to scrap a memory of that plunge.  This is the Tuesday night Cougar gang, at our end of the year recital practice looking sharp in our bright colours."
Fancy Pants Love Story papers

I layered the hearts one atop the other and folded the tops to stand out

I hope I never want to stop learning, and that I instill that same desire in my girls, as they see me grab life by the horns and go for it, every now and then.

The scrap twist this month is to use a heart on your page.  I  hope you find some time to play along, and create a layout of your own.   Nikki Sivils is our gracious sponsor this month, and has offered up a wonderful assortment of product for our winner.

Have a wonderful Monday friends,

We're back safe and sound.  Sorry, to have left you hanging over the past week. I wasn't able to post on the road.  Hubby and I tried several times to get photos posted to the blog using the iPad, and neither of us were able to find success. We did, however have a fabulous trip.  Disney World, for us, lived up to all the hype.  There were some surprises, like how chilly it got in the evenings, and how early all the parks  closed at this time of year.  But we have no complaints.  The kids had a wonderful time, they saw a lot, walked a lot, got along pretty well, and thoroughly enjoyed sharing the experience with their grandparents.  All in all we hit the following parks, and favored the following rides.  Magic Kingdom: Space Mountain, Universal Studios: Rip Rocket Roller coaster, Islands of Adventure: Dragon Challenge, Hollywood Studios: Rockin' Roller Coaster, Epcot: Mission Space, Animal Kingdom: Expedition Everest.  Did I mention that all but one of us are roller coaster junkies?  All that is, but Théa.  I have the best photo of her to share with you at a later date.  It's the one and only photo we did buy from any of the parks.  I am so glad we decided to do this trip, and that we waited until now.  Our kids are the perfect age, and going at this time of year meant that we had virtually no line ups to deal with.  Seven days just wasn't enough.  Even with all the planning I did we still managed to run out of hours at the end of every single day.  I'm really hoping there will be a 'next time', there's still so much I'd like to see, and a couple of roller coasters I didn't get to.
Here's a snapshot of our week.

So, now we're back to life without the heat, the rides, or the fever of Disney.  Instead we're now focused on life with Dance Competition practices, a Grade 3/4 Alice in Wonderland performance, and the start of a brand new semester.  I have some scrapping to catch up on and am looking forward to the official start of my term on the Scrapping Everyday Miracles design team.  Challenge #13 is set to go live in a few hours. You can check it out here.  Also, you have a couple more day to get your application in for the Creative Scrappers DT call.  It would be so great to get to work with Kristine and her team, especially since a few of my scrappy friends are currently on her DT.  Good luck if you too decided to throw your hat in the ring.

Thanks for visiting.  I hope your week is looking good from here.
