This Week!

In scrapping news! LOL I think it's kind of funny how I only seem to update on weekends...I spend most of Sat. mornings taking pics of what I did during the week to post on here, then I spend a couple hours editing and uploading stuff. Ahh, daylight after 5PM will come back, right? Right????? Not soon enough for me!!

So, lots to show you this week...but first, I just have to say that I am D-O-N-E my Christmas shopping!!! Oh yeah, baby!! It's all bought, wrapped and under the tree...I think this is the earliest I've ever been completly finished!! I need to stop and get Paul's stocking stuffers but other than more malls or stores for me! Ahhhhhhhhhh, feels good!!!! :) :) I also have to add that Paul is done..even my stocking is filled and under the tree...that is just not right!!!! lol

Had a wonderful time at Melanie's yesterday scrapping with my peeps - thanks again, Mel
for an awesome time, opening your home to us crazy chicks (Poor Dan! LOL) and letting me snuggle her baby sweet smiles!!!! Got lots done, finished Emilie's diary (I'll show you all after Christmas), did a couple cards for the January DT reveal at YMBD and a layout just for me!!!! That's a lot for me in one day!!! Oh and even though I had my camera I forgot all about taking a picture of Carole's amazing Turtle Cheesecake that she brought...omg, HEAVEN!!!!!!! Thanks, Carole!!!!

We did a Chinese gift exchange and here's the present I took home...LOVE it, what a cool funky color of Santa...he went on the tree right away!!! :)

Here's a pic of the 4 girls...we missed you Mitch, hope you had a safe drive home today!!!! From Left to right - Julie, Carole, Wendy and Melanie - the hostess with the Mostess!

At Scrap Shotz this year we did an ornament exchange that I took part!!! Here are the ornaments I got from Ellen...along with a beautiful card!!! Thanks again, Ellen, they are perfect!!!! :)

Now for some fun layouts and projects that I've worked on this week. This tasty little nugget is Crate Paper - Mia Collection, yum!!!!; Prima bling, Bazzill shape strips; and YMBD Journal Spots. Based on a sketch from So Sketchy - see link at right!

The same Bazzill shape strips I used on this card back in Sept when I got the kit from SSZ. Pink Paislee pp...have I mentioned it rocks my world? Well, just in case I didn' does!!! ;)

Oh look!!! More Pink Paislee - I had fun playing with the Tinsel Town line creating this canvas. I used a Tim Holtz Ranger Fragment and covered the pp with it and cut the trees out of a sheet of pp add some AC sparkly Thickers and lots of Stickles and you stuff!!!

This layout was done for the Dec Sketch Challenge at Scrap working with the circle background shape...I've never done that before without backing it with cardstock - I think I like it!!!!

I did this layout last night...thanks for the title help, girls!!!!! More Pink Paislee - Sweetcakes Line! Yum, so bright and fun for little girls!!! I made the flower from pp and punches and "ribboned" my ribbon for a fun element on the bottom! It reminds me of Robertson Ribbon Candy...any one from Truro, NS and surrounding areas should be familiar with that candy!!! More YUM!!! :)

And last but not least...and the best, I think just because of what it is!!! It's Jess's Loo Roll Gift Card holder!!! How fun is this? It's made with an empty toilet paper's a perfect size for a gift card so if you have time and you want a fun way to "wrap" gift cards you're giving...check out her quick, easy and fun to make!!! :)
