    Oh and Thursday is the last day to get the subscription to Atomic Cupcake. If you haven't bought it yet here's your last chance!

    And scroll down then comment on how adorable Emma is in her princess photos!

    Later gators!

    It's Magic!

    Hi all! Yes, I'm feeling loads better this week. And I had a lovely day off with the family too! Now then as my month of guest CT-ing over at Sophia Sarducci Shoppe is almost over I figure I'll share a few of my latest LOs with you all! These were all made using Sophia's Magical Vacation goodies. She made them last Oct when she and her family went to Disney World, at the time she sold them as a "grab bag" called the magical suitcase (That's when I bought them) but now you can get each part individually for a couple of bucks. They're fabulous and well worth the money! I'm in love with the page curls myself but I'll get to more soon I'm sure. (Solid papers are free!)

    This first one you can tell is from Halloween, my cute little fairy!
    papers- Magical Vacation Papers (patterns and solids) by Sophia Sarducci
    page curl- Magical Curled Edges by Sophia Sarducci
    glitter overlay- Magical Dust Overlays by Sophia Sarducci
    beads- October: Dime Store Beads by Sophia Sarducci
    wrap- Wound and Bound by Kim B. Designs
    font(s)- Mascara and Black Chancery

    This one is also from Halloween, again it's our pastor in his Harry Potter glory.

    And then this is Emma in her Princess outfit. I made her a tutu and got a crown and scepter in the dollar section at Target- she was so cute!!! This one is a card I made so I could mail the photos to the relatives. (So Dadoo a hard copy is on it's way!)

    Because they are adorable I'm going to share the big versions of the photos from yesterday with y'all! First is my princess in her thrown.
    Nest is her lying down and just being adorable.
    This was the first photos we took, can I tell you how hard it was to get her to sit still?
    She was actually growling at us in this photo, being a "lion".
    Emma playing with her pearls, we were lucky to get her standing still.
    This one is my favorite photo of them all. She looks so serious and adorable, I just want to reach in and hug her!
    Okay- that's enough of my cutie for now. I will be back either during quiet/nap time or after she goes to bed tonight with some freebie tips for y'all!

    Happy Scrapping!

    P.S. For the tutu I used tulle rolls from the wedding section of Walmart, so the whole thing cost me less than $10 and no sewing was involved!

    Monday, January 28, 2008

    You're on your own!

    I am finally feeling better, not 100%, but better. My hubby has the day off so we're having a family day. I know you all understand. I just popped on here to let you all know while Emma naps. Ok- I'm off to play with my hubby! TTYL!

    Happy Scrapping!

    Freebie List

    Sorry it's taken me so long to get back but I'm just not shaking whatever this is that's kicking my tushy. and of course the doctor is like wait until you finish the pills then come back. UGH! I just want to be vertical and not feel all woosy. So once again Barb has come to my rescue. She can't handle me not having freebies listed so when I'm not fast enough she goes looking for me... my hero!!! (Either that or I've turned her into a closet freebie hunter-lol!)

    Barb has some glitter hearts for you.
    Valinda has some great Valentine QPs up, scroll on down and take a peek.
    Malou has a Doodle Maniac kit up for grabs.
    missScrap has some glitter swirlies up.
    Gina has some templates for you HERE and HERE.
    Babs has a lovely Valentine QP on her blog.
    Princess Pam has more of her ABC kits up. (Scroll down to grab them all.)
    Jenni has some Doodle Love for you.
    Bonnie has a sampler of her new kit Down at the Bottom of the Garden...
    Carol has a Glitter Mess alpha up for grabs.
    Diana has a small Snow Day element pack.
    Kris has a Star Dust Trails add-on on her blog.
    Kim B. has a CT made add-on for her Forgotten Not kit.
    Misty has some Glitter Kraft Shapes for you.

    And here's the latest for my shop. I made some more Lovely Lace but this batch is Commercial Use OK. You can find Lovely Lace-CU now in my DBD shop! My fav is the layered PSD file that you can color the ribbon threaded thru the scalloped lace any color you want!
    And of course you can grab it for personal use too if you want. Two of the pieces are in yesterday's post for a personal use freebie!

    Happy scrapping and have a great weekend!

    I forgot the freebie...

    My head is definitely muddled. I made you all a cute little blog freebie add-on to Love Letters to go with tonight's chat. Doh! Well here's the freebie and don't forget to swing by chat at 9 pm est tonight in the DBD chat room!

    download Love Letters Blog add-on

    Happy Scrapping!

    Chat tonight!

    Just a quick reminder about the Love Letters chat tonight in the DBD chat room at 9pm eastern. Cool attendance and posting gifties for y'all and the kit is on sale all day today too for 50% off!!! I hope to see you all there, I don't know if I'll be there for the whole chat.

    While my 'head cold' ends up being, to quote my doctor, "You've got a right nasty upper respiratory infection there young lady." He's giving me some lovely drugs but being vertical still makes me cough, which in turn makes my head explode in pain and bright flashing lights. Then to top it all off Emma tried really hard to break my nose with the back side of her head while dancing on my lap. My poor head just can't take much more.

    Here are a few tips for today but I'm just not up for much yet:
    Amy F. has some neat Love Promises chocolate wrappers. They're really just too cool.
    Inked Edges has a fun paper pack called Fun Times. (Must go thru shop.)
    Princess Pam has more of her ABC Run and Skip kits up. (Scroll down to find them all) She also has listed some of the add-ons others have made.
    Amsen has an add-on paper pack for PP's ABC Run.
    Krista has a neat new kit called Tattered.
    Kim B. has made a beautiful memorial kit called Forgotten Not and is sharing a sampler with you. (And a gorgeous Feb desktop with the kit HERE.)
    Please remember to leave some love people!

    Happy Scrapping and I'll see you tonight!

    Monday, January 21, 2008


    Ok, I have a serious head cold that's kicking my tushy. SO I'm going to be quick. I combined all the minis from the MMM and put Love Letters into the shop. I'll also be featured in a chat on Wednesday at 9 pm est in the DBD chat room. I made 2 great add-ons for Love Letters and the kit will be on sale that day to boot! Hope to see everyone there!

    Okay I wasn't up for freebie hunting because my head is about to fall off, so the wonderful Mrs. Miles (aka- Barb) helped me, or rather she did it for me. But first I must tell you about our mutual friend Olivia, she has some great new Valentine goodies in her Sophia Sarducci Shoppe. And she has two great freebies, one being hosted on Barb's blog and the other on the SSS blog. Swing by and grab them.

    I need to go lay down so I'm sorry to say I'm not linking these freebies she sent me, just posting the list. You'll have to copy and paste them. If that's too much work, go check out Ikea Goddess blog for freebies. (<---- Link in left side bar.) Here you go:

    P.S. Please try to remember our nation in your nightly prayers as we head into this election year. We all need to research our candidates and pray for His guidance when we step into those booths in November. (Or sooner if you're taking part in primary's.) Good leadership starts with an informed decision of it's choosing.

    Today was another busy day. I went to the YMCA this morning for Yoga then came home ate breakfast, showered and we were off again! It was our weekly shopping expedition to all the shops to stock up for the week. Then Hubby was off so we did some family stuff, While Emma napped today (yes, she napped!!) hubby played on here so I read a book and did some housework. Then CPS showed up and woke Emma from her nap and it was cranky little miss for the rest of the day. What fun that was!

Then Saturday was a double b-day party day plus I had to get ready for being the "hospitality hostess" at church on Sunday. Then Sunday was church and spent some time playing outside with Emma since it was the first warm day in awhile. And somewhere in there I went into Raleigh and shopping with Kristen.

Plus with Shutterfly you can pick what month to start your calendar on, so It doesn't even have to start this month-lol!

    Here's today's Friday Freebie for you all. It's just a fancy-dancy little cluster/wrapped frame I was fiddling around with.
    (Oh and the drop shadow was just to show detail, it's not on the actual frame.)

    * We're going out on a date tonight and I'm working on a roll at a new kit so no list right now, maybe tonight when we get back or tomorrow.

    Happy New Year!

    Hi there everyone and welcome to 2008! Sorry I'm running behind so far this year but I've made some New Year's resolutions that I really want to make a go of but the organization is taking longer than I had anticipated. I'm sure I'll get it all worked out in the end but if I go MIA I apologize. One of my resolutions is to put family first and foremost and with Emma still on winter break I feel like I'm playing catch up with all my scrapping, and sadly my blog and then freebie hunting are at the bottom of my list as to priorities. I'll be scrapping my resolutions this week (In all my free time-lol) so I'll hopefully be sharing them with y'all soon.

    I know a few of you asked about the Scooba from iRobot I got for xmas, just click on the linka dn read all about the handy dandy little guy who'll mop my kitchen for me!

    Okay now then new month means new Mega Kit over at DBD! This month's is a beauty called Toasted Almond! And if you attend tonight's Wacky Wednesday chat (9 pm eastern in the DBD chat room), not only will you get some great goodies that go with the kit for attending you'll get a coupon code for 25% off the already low introductory price of $3.99!

    New month also means new challenges! We have 2 new challenges hosted by me over at DBD this month. The Quote Challenge is all about smiles this month with a cute posting bonus:
    and then the Template Challenge is a wintry wonderland of fun!
    with it's own cool posting bonus:

    And of course we have our four fun challenges this month over at Happy Scrapz. Complete all four and get the January kit!

    and the grab bag challenge:
    That's all I have for now. I'll try to come back after bedtime tonight for freebie hunting, otherwise it'll be tomorrow morning when the munchkin is at school. (Yea! She goes back tomorrow!)

    Happy Scrapping!
