Another class project

I almost didn't do this assignment. I struggled very much with the journaling assignment. You were supposed to interview someone and use a direct quote... my teenagers are not willing interviewees, so I used a memory instead. Anyway... Here it is. The papers I used are from my Stampin' Up Software instead of the the class kit. The layout as planned was a bit girly, so I had to toughen it up a bit for my Alex.

Hippy Chic!

I USED MY CRICUT and not only that, I took the Easter Cart out of the clamshell wrapping that it has been nestled in now for a few months...WOOOHOOO.. I SO ROCK! lol Now I'm out of practice.. the chic should've been much smaller, who knew 3.3/4 would be that big, right?!?!?!? Anywho... did I say.. I USED MY CRICUT!?!?!!!!!!!
I had no idea where I was going on this one. I picked papers, put the first mat on...looked around found another that matched. Made a tag, then thought "now What?"... saw my SU bird punch.. ok, that's quick and easy... that'll work... hmmmm that corner is still empty... hey, let's just cut off a corner of cardstock and stick it on... there all done! Seriously, that's how that one went together. Sometimes I want to craft, but I sit down and have "creators block".. that ever happen to you?

Using my scrap drawer

Once in awhile I go into my scraproom and just open my scrap drawer and see what I come up with... this is one of those cards. I spent about 20 minutes on each card. LOL At some point I'm going to have to just toss all those scraps because I seem to keep going back to the same ones. I am not a stamper and I'm worse at coloring, but I have fun! Not quite sure what occasion the duck card would be, but I just love the goose! lol He looks like I feel most mornings! lol

Type + Writer 1 Lesson #2

Here's my latest attempt at the Jessica Sprague Type + Writer class on journaling. She suggested a photo in the mirror, which I did... but you can see the flash on the right side of the photo... I'll tweak that later.

My JS Typewriter Class Assignment

Here is my layout for the Jessica Sprague Type + writer class. The only changes I made to her preplanned layout were fonts and I burned the edges a bit for a grungier look to the background paper.

Everything looks Better in PINK..

This looked much better in my head! LOL

Messing around with Sweet Treats Cartridge

Well I've seen so many cupcake cards and believe it or not, I've never made one... so here it is... Taaadaaaaa! :) I cut the "Sprinkled with Fun" at 1-1/2", I think it's too small, kinda hard to read.

And she scores!!!

Having fun with the camera and Katie. I took her out and tossed the ball, then tried to shoot on continuous photos really quick. I got several of her just getting ready to catch the ball. I know, I know enough of the dog pictures... but I get so excited!! LOL And don't look at the messy yard.. remember a week ago we had snow the ground, then rain all weekend. This weekend is yard cleanup.. although the weatherman is saying the S-Word for Sunday!! I refuse to believe it!

I"ve forgotten how to paper scrap

I've been doing so much digi work that I've forgotten how to scrap with real paper! I struggled with this and I don't like it, it's super busy for my style and my colors seem washed out when put together. I think I need to paper scrap some more and brush up.. my mind is digitized!

Struggled with this one, still not happy, but not changing it anymore.. sometimes it's best to move on and let go.. they can't all be your favorites!

Thinking of you

And the inside:

Spring Card

My friend, Lori, made the cutest little Valentine kits for Jodie and I. She took a heart shaped candy box and covered it with cute Valentines paper and instead of chocolates on the inside, she filled it with all sorts of Valentines embellishments, I wanted to use some of it on a card, so here's the end result. She actually cut the pink felt flower and sewed the button on, the pink felt ric rac was also part of the kit, it was just the cutest kit. I didn't use all of the items obviously.

Best of Friends

Just a "quickie" tonight! :)

Just a Lorrie Story

So... I have one of those nifty eyebrow trimmers, I use it on my daughter all the time who tends to grow a unibrow if left unattended. Well I am of the age that I have a few strays once in awhile to pluck, but other than that, that's about it. So you'd think I'd grab tweezers and shape up those one or two stray eyebrows every now and then...right? Oh, no.. I'm in too big of a hurry to do that so I get the turbo eyebrow thingy and think I'll just get them real quick. Now.. refer back to me letting you all know that I now need reading glasses.. (hence I can't see up close). So.. there I am, face in the mirror attempting to get the three little hairs that appeared in the arch of my eyebrow. I'm satisfied I got them... I step back.. put the gadget away and proceed to look in the mirror... I SHAVED OFF HALF MY EYEBROW!!! SERIOUSLY!! OMG! Well, it was over a week ago that I did that (it took me this long to share it with you because I was moritified). They are starting to grow back in already, but I have to tell you something funny... I went to the drugstore and bought ROGAINE for women and have been using a cotton swab to put it on my browless eyebrow every morning and night, then I Googled "how to make your eyebrows grow faster" and read about castor oil... so I put that on my eyebrow every night too! lol Why does this stuff always happen to me. It's growing in, but it's very sparse, I do not have those thin little eyebrows (well, right now I have one and a half). So, ladies... no this will not be a POD on my 365 blog, but heed the warning... slow down, take your time or you, too, could end up with only 1.5 eyebrows!

Another Jessica project

Just another quick project from a Jessica Sprague class. The subject is from my last November when my girlfriends and I (from High School) meet once a year for a Girls Night Out Weekend. We have an all weekend slumber party at my house. This year we took one day and went to Chicago. This summer we're having our 2010 GNO weekend and this time we're going to go camping (sort of)... Should be fun!
