Week #6 page

I can't believe I have done six pages!!! For any and all that know me well, I'm lucky when I get 1 page done in 6 weeks...LOL...I just couldn't get into my groove. I can tell you what really helps is Stampin Up...Their products that match everything so well make it so much easier for me to get things done. I think that's what makes me the most crazy with scrapbooking is I don't want to guess if what I am using matches. Stampin Up is so great for me that way, all the guess work is done on matching paper to cardstock. Anywho, this is my daughter Jillian who I can't believe turned 18 this year. Seems like yesterday I brought her home from the hospital. Where does time go.

Scraptahlon Week #5 page

This page was for week #5 on the scraptathlon challenge on We had to have a picture of motion and we had to come up with a Haiku, which I didn't even know what a Haiku was until this week. I came in first with this page on the neighborhood votes and the judges votes. I have come close but never taken first place until this week. I work on my pages for days and this page I did in about 30 minutes and I came in first. Maybe that is the key for me...LOL...This is my son Jeremy on one of our trips to Rosarito, Mexico...we love the beach and I love getting pictures of the kids at the beach. I can and have taken hundreds of pictures of them here...LOL....
I used:
Stamps-Sanded background stamp
Paper-old DSP paper, baja breeze, kraft, whisper white, and Blue Bayou
Ink- blue bayou, baja breeze, close to cocoa
accessories-bling, Prima Marketing, chipboard-Heidi Swapp

Week #4 Scraptathlon page

This weeks challenge was to scrap about a positive change and it had to have something about President Obama on the page. It could be like my page and have pics or it could be some of his AWESOME speeches and quotes. It didn't have to be about him but I had wanted to do a page about his election and the excitment of that election night. Then I went online and found some pictures of him and that was that...there was one pic I found of Bush and Laura in Air Force one flying away from the White House with the Obamas and Bidens waving good bye on the White House steps...and I was going to talk about the positives in just that one picture...LOL...but decided I wanted votes...hee hee hee....Which by the way I came in second from the neighborhood vote and I don't know where I placed with the judges...We also had to make the page in purple whcih was the true challenge for me as I really dislike this color...ALOT!!.


I'm so excited for kick off. I was raised in Las Vegas but my household has been Steeler fans from the time I could understand what football was. I am making all kinds of fun food and getting my camera charged and ready. Every year my boys go to a Demolay party but this year we are all staying here for the game. I can get some great I will either be to caught up in the game and not take any OR my kids will not cooperate, to which I will beat whole house is buzzing. Jared can't wait to see what we make this year. GO STEELERS!!
