a new LO

well i submitted a page over on pagemaps, i saw they posted something about a possible turn in a magazine so i thought what the hay and gave it a try well i guess they made their decision and i didnt make it. its ok it was my first one and i am happy with how it turned out so thats really all that matters

they had 150 submissions and thats got to be a hard decision to call!
so i can finally share my LO, they had a sketch and you had to change the 8.5x11 sketch to 12x12
so without further ado here it is-ha ha ha
and i finally figured out how to not have that date on there anymore. our camera broke so i have been using mother in laws. it just takes away from the whole photo-yuck!

also i lost 20lbs and i am excited! we have been eating healthier and i was walking when the weather was nice so only 20 more pounds and i will be happy:0)

hope everyone has a great week and i hope everyone is getting ready for a great thanksgiving
happy scrapping!

i am going to be a aunt again tonight or tomorrow. one of my sisters is pregnant and due dec 9th well little steven thinks otherwise! she is 2cm dilated and 80% effaced and her contractions are 3-4 min apart. so the doctor told her its probably going to be tonight or tomorrow. and the stinky part i am really sick, i have a cold so i cant be there for the birth or to see my new nephew:0( that makes me really sad. so i will update when i hear something!

so i just got my dt stuff for mothers and daughters creations, in the meantime you can check out their blog and post to their challenges. they also have a free stamp giveaway, so head over and check them out!

i did this LO i saw it in scrapbooks etc mag but wanted to make it my own. well i am not happy with it at all! its very plain and boring for me. its 8x8 i am trying to finish up sean's book
i used bazzill cardstock, target paper, handstitching, handcutting and some embossing

oh well i guess 1 LO that your not happy with isnt to bad right?

i used reminisce paper 3 different kinds
st. nick's sweater
holiday cheer
santa's socks

i will be doing a tutorial on how to make these over in lets scrap on ning next week! so come and join us and stop over at MDC and say hello!

also here is my LO for Lets Scrap this month, i had fun! we used a sketch from julie bonner (love the sketches julie!)
i did some hand stitching on this and i am happy with how it came out, its 8x8 so i had to kinda cram things on there, i am trying to fill out the rest of my son's book.

TGIF and a few LO's

TGIF ladies! over at the ning group tonight we are having a mini crop at 830pm eastern, if you are not apart of the group and would like to be please email me and i can send you an invite!

so i have been scrapping and using the awesome julie bonner's sketches!
this LO was done using a LO i seen in scrapbook etc magazine, but i put my own twist on it!
this was done for a sketch over at julie's site:
for this LO i used acetate and then outlined the letters in stickles, i also used epoxy alpha's that i peeled the letters off and used and clear bubbles!

this LO i had it saved in my scraplift folder on the computer, but i did put my own spin on it
i wanted to use these cool funky papers, the non-traditional type of christmas stuff. i used rub on stitching and 2 birds chipboard.

well thanks for looking!
happy scrapping
