Friends with Flair Friday!!!

Boy did this week FLY BY!!! It's time for FWF...and today I am sharing a couple cards with you...

Unity: Insightful Meadow

Unity: Sports Squares

...what a week it has been and I am happily saying goodbye to it and welcoming the weekend! Soccer has started already and tomorrow will begin baseball...and soon to follow coach-pitch...geesh I wish I could multiply so each of my kiddos could have my undivided attention. It's getting harder and harder to do everything I need to do for's impossible to be in 3 different places at once. I know we will get it figured out...

I am also looking forward to having a "date" with my hubby! And my kiddos are looking forward to spending time with their me-maw and pe-paw! We are so lucky to live close to them and the kids get to spend alot of time with them.

Well we need to head out the door EARLY this morning for a "Green Eggs & Ham" breakfast at school...

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Yeahhhhh it's Thursday!

Today I am sharing a LO using the January Scrapbooking/Collage Kit {Unforgettable Moments}. ...I also threw in the {i love you} sentiment from Ippity's "Because of you".

This year Stuart and I will be celebrating our 12th anniversary! He's my best friend and I couldn't imagine not having him here...last week we had a little scare...we don't take a single day for granted.

I am in LOVE with American Crafts new Abode collection! I picked up this entire line at CHA and I LOVE it...I had something else in mind for it but I really like how this LO came together.

Thanks for stopping by today - be sure to check out the rest of the Design Team for some inspiration that is sure to knock your socks off!

Well today will be another busy day filled with appointments...hope everyone has a super day!

...has its good points...I am finding when I am stressed out...I can spend some time in my scrap room and create some projects! Last night I created these two cards and the 1st digital LO and then I finished up the 2nd digital LO this morning before heading to school!

To make these cards I used GOODIES that I picked while at CHA :D

I think this afternoon I will try to make a few more cards and get those in the mail...and hopefully find some new outside lights for the new house...the ones we originally picked out were discontinued :(

Hope everyone is having a super day!

Just wanted to say...

I needed to make a "thank you" card and I must say if you are looking for a stamp set full of wonderful sentiments you need to get your hands on Ippity's {Just wanted to Say...}

...this morning I am going to hand deliver this and get my photo taken - which I hate doing by the way...and go read with some awesome 1st graders! Then I am going to finalize the stain color for our new front door!!!

ooohh I almost forget to share these...

I used the {Could I be any Cuter?} stamp set by Unity and just masked off the "have a" and re-stamped it where I wanted it to go!

Have a super Tuesday!

Happy Monday Everyone!

It's time for a H{Ippity} Hop!!! I would like to share an altered pocket calendar today :) I made this for a good friend who's been diagnosed with cancer. She's the most amazing person I know and has the most AMAZING courage and outlook on life. This calendar will help organize her appointments and surgery's and other comings and goings.

I knew I wanted to make her this calendar but when I saw the Ippity set {Just wanted to Say...} I knew exactly what I was going to use...I also used {Life's Little Moments} and {Because of You}.

This project was featured on the GCD Studios Blog back on 2.8.10, but then I remembered that I never shared it on my today's the day :)

Now head on over to the Ippity Blog and check out the list of people participating today some inspiration you'll be sure to LOVE!

Have a super day!

...I only have today left before I have to spend the rest of the week back in a class...and there's a bunch of stuff I would like to get done...

The kids and I were up EARLY this morning...all of us well before 7am...trying to keep them quiet proved to be quite the a chore. I am glad I get to leave in a bit to meet a friend for some coffee and good conversation. When I get home, Camryn and I will be making a cake :)

...and then I am going to get started on a new Spellbinder Dies arrived yesterday while we were out of I an anxious to get going on that page! I have a couple ideas I think I'll start working and see were my creativity leads me...

Happy Birthday Camryn!

Today my little girl turns "7" What a fast 7 years its been! I can still remember being in the hospital like it was yesterday...being given a tremendous amount of medication so I wouldn't have a seizure...and then not even getting to hold her for quite some time...but now she's growing up!

Last night we all went out for her Birthday dinner and of course she picked Red Robin...

...and last weekend she had her very first "friend" birthday party! Her and her best friend Aana celebrated together and had the best time!

"Its Your Day". we are heading out of town in hopes of finding a mirror for the powder bath for the new house and picking up our new OLD lights...also taking Camryn to BuildABear so she can spend her Birthday $$$. We are really looking forward to lunch too lol

Hope everyone has a great day!

The weeks are just going by faster and starts the first day of my 6 day class...I was supposed to be getting ready for jury duty but that's been put on hold thank goodness! I sure hope I can make it through the whole day without falling asleep I have been SO TIRED lately...this may be a "two" STARBUCKS day for me :D

Today I want to share a card I made for a good friend...using some really old Chatterbox pattern paper...I have had this for ages but finally decided to use it. I also used "A Spring Unity".

...thanks for stopping by today! Have a super Friday!

Yeah its Thursday...

...and its going to be a great day! I'm still extremely tired from all my traveling I've been doing...only to get back in the car and go again in a couple of days!

Today I am sharing a LO about me...I don't think this reflects my typical was very different for me and I don't really like how it turned out...but I do really like the message...and sometimes the message is the important part.
I used the January Scrapbooking kit :) and everything else is from GCD Studios: from the Artsy Urban Collection.

Thanks for stopping by today! Be sure to stop by the rest of the Design Teams Blogs for some great inspiration to start off this new month!

Tuesday, February 2, 2010 from CHA...

I actually didn't take many photos...I was just too busy to have my camera out I guess...but I did manage to get a few...this first photo is my LO of Camryn featuring "Insightful Meadow" at the Unity Booth.

(The rest of these photos are not in an particular order)
Natalie and got the chance to meet Jessica...follow Design Team member at Unity. Jessica Diedrich you are so fun! Yes...we are sporting red boas...and Camryn has claimed it as her own since I came home.

Here I am with Heidi Sonboul, Design Team Coordinator for GCD Studios. GCD is having their Design Team call RIGHT on the link and read all the details about the call :)

...oh here's sweet friend! I LOVED getting to see "Fresh Page Ideas to Scrap the Year" in black and fun to see my LO...can't wait for the book to come out! Be on the look out for it in JUNE.

Heather Brown, ME, Robyn Weatherspoon and Natalie Dever. All three of these ladies are AMAZING and if you are ever in need of inspiration be sure to stop by their blogs first!

Many months ago I made the following projects for Grafix featuring some of their product along with GCD Studios and Unity stamps. These were on display in the Grafix booth during the show.

Here's Natalie and I again with Kyra...Ky you are so fun and I enjoyed every minute spent with you!

...oh and these LOVELY ladies Eva and Kelly. I was so glad to finally met you two IRL :D

...Me and Angela! It was so good to finally met you too! You are the most genuine person I have every met - your success is truly deserved!

Me - Andrea and Natalie...gosh it makes me so sad we all live so far apart! It was good to see you :)

Leaving Downtown Disney one night I was able to take some photos of the fireworks over at was a beautiful evening!

...but the next day was a very different was pouring down rain...

...but we had fun shopping anyway!

I loved meeting so many other people...Sara, Ashley, Heather, CarrieAnne, Broni, Nancy, Lynn, Laura, Jimmi, AJ, The Unity Guys, Norma, Suzy, Lori and so many more...

...I enjoyed my 7 days away from my family but it felt SO GOOD to be back home and my kiddos missed me so much. As soon as I got home I got ready for Camryn's birthday party - maybe I will post about that tomorrow...tonight I am EXHAUSTED...I spent the day out of town again and I am so tired. Good Night!
