Ok so five months later i finally finished

I started this album in April, and for some reason( prob cus it was just for me) I never got around to finishing it! I have decided that i want to finish all of the projects that i have half done, before we pack up and move to our new house!!! this is a very ambitious goal lol ;)
So pretty much all of the paper is from Basic Grey Obscure line. I love this line so much, but im happy that i used up every last bit of it!!!! I wanted to make a mini using the theme always..... as the theme. Page one is random bits about me at the time. Page 2 is Always look at things from different angles. My niece who was four at the time took this pic of me! Page 3 is Always make pretty things! page 4 is always joke around. page 5 is always laugh out loud. page 6 is always remember how important family is. page 6 is always follow your heart and page 8 is always remember to dip your toes in the ocean!!! Hope you guys enjoy! im off to scrap some more, and maybe do some laundry ;(

Happy times happy times

I used to hate red, but for some reason lately im totally drawn to it!!!! This is a pic i took while i was driving to see my grandparents! Ahh the open road :) pretty simple lo. i have seen quite a few people use one sticker for each word, so i cant really credit anyone for it. It was some one somewhere lol. Oh ya I saw a link on Donna's blog about actions that you could use in pse 6. OMG i bought 2 and i think i might be in love!!!! The links are at the bottom of the post. Here is where i bought mine. Ill post some before and after pics as soon as i figure out exactly how to use them!!!! I got the mac version, and in the read me file it explained exactly how to install them. check them out!!
Side note.......last night i watched fringe(oh the wonders of tivo how did i survive with out it!). holy crap its the best show ever!!! If you havent see it you can watch the full episodes here! Its kinda sci fi(more like sci minus the fiction!) sort of like X Files kinda only better in my opinion! If you like lost, one of the creators or writers or something is working on this too! Plus Joshua jackson is in it which is by no means a negitive lol!

Home Sweet Home Wall Hanging

I started this project a few weeks ago, and got side tracked as always ;) I worked on it for a few hours and i super love it. Most of the stuff I used came from the past two Scarlet Lime Kits. It started as a die cut piece of chipboard that was discarded at some point. The letters are corrugated cardboard, i got them from Joanns and painted them red. This is going to the new house sunday!!! our first new house decoration!!! I made a lo last night too. Ill post it tomorrow. Off to clean my house :(

The colors look bland :( These are the first two thing i made with the moda bella line from american crafts. I love love love this line!!!! The lo is for OLW, the prompt is LOVE this month. I love my grandparents more then anything so i thought i would scrap some pics of my recent trip to their house :) the card is a 6/12 piece of bazzil scallop paper! Im very excited they came out with this size cus i have been wanting to do some 6 X 12 pages.

The enabling continues!!!

6. Tim Holtz Christmas stamps: Tim is one of my fav designers in this industry! I may not always do a distressed look, but when i do its his products i turn too time and time again. Im gonna make my Christmas cards with these this year i think? Depends on how cool that basic grey Christmas paper is!!!!!
7. NEW Stickles: I'm so excited I could just pee!!! They are a combo of my fav ink colors(distressables by tim holtz) and stickles!!!! . I found both of these and the Tim Holtz stamps on this website! Tim is also coming out with masks!!! Check them out too :) 8. ModaBella: I am totally in love with this line. American crafts can be hit or miss sometimes.......but ModaBella rocks big time. These colors are so bright and vibrant, I cant wait to scrap these!!!!
9. Eclectic Mini album by Basic Grey: Not out yet but i think im gonna have to have this one!!! I really like that every page is different :)*******10****** Spell bound by Making memories. This is the Halloween collection im gonna use this year. i think its the only one that doesnt look cheesy and tacky :) Plus they came out with mini alphas to go with it!!!!!!
Hope you enjoyed the enabling!!!!
On a side note this week was super sad for me: Elsie Flannigan posted on her blog that she wont be designing for ki memories any more. The love Elsie lines of paper have been my super fav for a while now. im sad that she wont be creating the any more. I wish her well on her journey, where ever it takes her(hopefully she will create another line soon!!!)
Side note 2 i made it through the hurricane lol I drove home and didnt see any rain :)

Hey guys!!!

Im currently in south Texas visiting my grandparents!! they are so sweet and i love them more then anything.....They gave hubs and I a whole car load full of tools to help with our remodel!!!!!!! My grandpa was a Carpenter his whole life so he has all the good stuff(made when tools were solid and didn't break:) I plan on leaving tomorrow and hopefully ill be far enough to the west of hurricane Ike. Fingers crossed on that one!!!! I plan on stopping in Austin to visit archivers scrapbook store so i can get some Making memories Halloween stuff. Its pretty much the only one that i like when i looked up the new stuff online. Who knows i might like others when i actually see them up close!!!! I thought since i haven't scrapbooked in a while that i would enable you guys a little by showing some things that i am currently obsessed with!!! Ready.......Set.........Shop!!!!!
1. Teresa collins Halloween Spooktacular I love the whole line, but i super love these journal/mini book things. You can bind then with the bind it all to make a super cool mini book, or just add them to a page, i plan on using them on a Halloween banner that i have been dreaming up since i saw one on scarlet lime.

2. Scarlet Lime Kits: I have been subscribed to prob 10 kit clubs at various times throughout the years and eventually they all sucked. This on rocks in so many ways, You get a ton of stuff for your money($40) lots of paper(always brand new) and lots and lots and lots of embellishments. Last month there was a package of the new thickers, there are always fabric swatches, different little tags or embellies from Etsy ladies, buttons ribbon......You name it its in there!!! If you scrapbook out of the box, or just like getting a huge box full of fun stuff sign up for one of their kits!!! Wow that sounded like an advertisement lol......... Its not its just what i like!!!!
3. Thickers.....My heart, and all my husbands money belong to you!!! Ok I pretty much use these on every layout, mini book, and card I every make. They add color and dimension like no other product i have ever tried. I have a great need to own every type in every color!!! My fav is sprinkles vinyl. I am a little upset cus they changed the way they make them and the new way isn't as cool looking.
4. College press Journaling cards: I super love journaling card, and these really caught my eye!!! PLUS they only cost $0.65!!!!!!! I found some here5. Basic Grey Wassail- this is a big maybe for me. I havent see any really good pictures online so far so i have to wait and see it up close. I havent seen a bunch of christmas paper i have liked. Last year i used Wintergreen from Stampin up! i liked it because it was non traditional christmas colors. Red and green are boring.

Hope you guys like my picks for yummy stuff to buy! I might post some more soon, i just figured 5 was plenty :) have a super super great day!!!!!!
