.... thank goodness for auto post

... I have a confession... I have been MIA the last two weeks. Thanks goodness for auto posting cause I was able to keep my blog updated without being around. Work has been insane!!!!! I work at UC Davis and it was move in time and whenever the new students arrive it is hectic. But I am BACK!!!!! I got lots of sleep and even did a few layouts the last couple of days.

This first layout I call... I Carry Your Heart. It is for These Are a few of my favorite poems. I adore this poem and it always makes me think of my sister Sarah. If you have ever seen In Her Shoes this is the poem Cameron Diaz recites at Toni Collettes Wedding. This story of two sisters is like my sister and I's story minus the sister not knowing how to read and her sleeping with my boyfriend thing :) My sister is pretty smart and not slutty at all :) Lol Anyway... we have a great connection and sometimes I feel like I would not be whole without her. This is my favorite picture of the two of us when we were little in the bath tub together playing with the bubbles. The poem is by E. E. Cummings in case you wanted to know!! I also used a template for the strip of pictures for the Scrapbookers Anonymous challenge!!!!!

I also did another layout and this one used the Pagerize This challenge from Scrap Our Stash and Joni. I loved the layout she did so I turned it on it's side and changed up the colors a little!!

I promise to be more active now that the busyness is done... of course I am posting this blog at work cause I am still inundated with emails from my two days off!!!!!!! Here's to hoping I head home soon!!!!!! Pin It

… little wonder(s)

Another weekly dose of my DT submission for Scrap it with a song. Who doesn’t love Rob Thomas? My friend married Rob Thomas two years ago… of course it wasn’t “thee” Rob Thomas just some guy with the same name and no he can’t sing. Its a shame :) lol. Anyway… great song to play with this week… Little Wonders. For mine I used pics of Baby Beau (I know… BIG Surprise… but I have a lot of catching up to do) and dropped the S from wonders to get “Little Wonder” cause that’s' what he is! I used the new boarder punch my sis bought me for my b-day last month. I don’t have a lot of punches but was determined to use this one! And use it I did!!!!!!!! Stop by and play along, won’t you!!!!!!

… Scrap it with a Song Blog Hop!!!

Hey Hey everybody!!!!!!! Thanks for hoppin’ through :)

Kelly’s blog should have brought you here!! If not, you should head to Scrap It With a Song to start from the beginning!!

As you probably know this weekend MTV will be hosting the Annual Video Music Awards and to celebrate the event we are having our FIRST EVER Scrap It With a Song Blog Hop!!! That’s right!! Since I am your second to last stop, you should have popped into the other DT’s blogs to see what they had to share for their karaoke Hour. REMEMBER we are offering goodies to our fabulous readers. To be in the running for the Main prize, you need to complete this weeks challenge and comment on each of the DT blogs and then comment back on the main blog’s hop post when you’re done. The hope will last until Sunday at 8pm central time.

BUT WAIT… there’s more!!!!! I too will be offering up a rockin’ prize. I will be throwing together a little sample of what I offer in my Etsy Store… A little dash of this and that!!! There will be some vintage goodies, recycled buttons, handmade flowers, etc. It will be a great surprise for one of you!! All you have to do is follow me and leave me a comment!! Easy breezy!

I’d like to share a layout with you that showcases a favorite artist of mine. seventeen I made this a little while ago and got the stronger from the always fabulous Britney Spears. Okay… no laughs. I know she is a terrible role model and has had more drama than some soap operas, but I love her music, especially this song. I like the idea of being stronger than yesterday!!

Now hop on back to Scrap It With a Song and don’t forget to leave a comment that you are done! Thanks for stopping in!!!

… what big eyes you have!!

Better to see you with!! Better to see this layout!!  I adored the sketch featured at ScrapFIT and loved that I got to pull out some scraps that I have saved up.  On a side note, I am kinda crazy about keeping scraps.  I actually keep them organized by color so they are easy to find!! Back to the challenge… Here is my take on the sketch for Workout 27

big eyes

Now I am not a card maker so the next two photo’s might shock you… I am shocked!!  I made not only one but two cards tonight in response to ScrapFIT’s Mini Workout #3.  The goal was to use scraps from my previous workout and that is exactly what I did.  I actually need two thank you cards for two girls at work who really helped me out this week.  Not to toot my own horn but I am pretty proud of myself…. toot toot!! Hope you like!!!!!!!!!!

above the rest thank hoo Peace out!!!
