Weekend Party at ScrapNChat

So we are celebrating SkrapNChat's first birthday check it out HERE

So one of the challenges that was posted by the fabby design team is a layer challenge and this is my LO for it! I just am so happy with how it turned out that I had to share.

Here's the LO:

And a couple close ups. I added the pink ribbon to the popsicle stick by hand. It was a labour of love but I love the pink loops!!

Feeling a Bit Better

So I haven't been doing much of anything lately. I have been sick with Bronchitis since last Saturday and today is really the first day in the last week that I have felt like doing much of anything.

I wanted to do this challenge at the Nerdy Victorious Scrapbookers blog for sometime now and had the perfect pics for it. My last office was as nerdy as they come and I loved them for that. I will never have an office quite like this one and never have officemates that are the same. We had some wild, crazy fun that I will never even dream of having in any other job. The best part is that we still keep in touch! Love all my nerdy gal pals! Thanks for looking!!

It's been awhile, I know......I am sick. I would love to post another lovely LO but it's all I can do to hold my head up....my darling husband got sick and decided that it would be a good idea to infect me.....I still love him, but I would rather not be sick. Hopefully I can update something for you all by the end of the week! (insert me crossing my fingers here)

All things pretty

So I have had this picture sitting on my desk since I came back from a girls trip to NYC. I love this pic of my friend and wanted to do something special with it for her. SO here is the layout that I created (helped along from a challenge issued at SkrapnChat by Jenn!- you rock Jenn). The title and lyrics are taken from the broadway musical Wicked. Totally go see it if you ever have the chance! I am going to pick up a frame this week for it so she can display it.

Skrap the Girls

So I came across this blog awhile back, totally by accident called Scrap The Girls The whole concept of the blog is to scrap LOs of girls. THey have a strict "no boys allowed" rule which is cool. I figured their blog will help me scrapbook my girls trip to NYC and other such girliness that I have hanging around waiting to be scrapped. SO here is the first challenge I completed on their blog. It's for the January sketch, so ABSOLUTELY perfect for these pics of my girlfriends skipping through Central Park!!!

Thanks for looking!

Pup Pup and Twisted Sketches challange #31

So I guess you could call us puppy foster parents. Jeremy's family lost both of thier dogs in a short period of time; they had been a part of the family for many, many years so you can imagine how hard it was when they both had to be put down. So as a Christmas present in 2007 we all pitched in and purchased Mom a brand new puppy. He stayed at our place for a few weeks before he headed home to Saskatchewan. We just called him Pup Pup so that Mom could pick a name that she loved when they finally met. His name ended up being Morley and he is a wirey, full of life, dog. This page is a tribute to the time he spent at our place. Thanks to the sketch challenge at Twisted Sketches I really love how it turned out!!

And a close up of some of the detail.

Twisted Sketches Transparency Twist

So I had to join in on the fun over at Twisted Sketches again!! This sketch was the perfect fit for this LO of my sister and I. When we were in Vancouver in 2007 we wanted to go scrapbook shopping so bad that we ripped the page out of the phonebook (we didn't have any paper on us) and took a $60 cab ride on our way to the airport just to go scrapbook shopping!! I love to tell this story and I am so happy to finally have this fun picture scrapped and the story written down! What a fun memory!

First LO of the year

So I think that I am doing fairly well keeping my blog updated....I think it helps that I have a better idea of what I am doing! lol!

Anyways I just posted my Guest Design Team Challenge at Skrap N Chat I am really quite please at how this LO turned out! It actually started out as an entry for My Minds Eye challenge on their blog here MY MINDS EYE I love working with these sketches! What a talented sketch artist that Anam is!!

but as December would have it, I was super busy and didn't have time to finish it up so I decided that I would at least get it completed by January 1 to post it as my challenge at Skrap N Chat . The flowers on the LO are all handmade by MOI!!!! I am pretty proud of myself. It was a bit of a trial and error but when I had the idea, I just had to complete these. The tulle is hand twisted and wrapped to make roses and the paper flowers are hearts punched out using Stampin' Up! heart punch and then glued inward on a circle base. If you give these techniques a try I would love if you would post back here so I could check out your work and a shout out to my blog would be fabulous too!

Here is the LO! Thanks for looking!

And of course a close up of the flowers!
