Time flies!

I do a kit club once a month at the local scrap store.  This month, we were given the paper line "Restoration" from Crate Paper.  Oh my, I LOVE it!  I can't seem to put it down!!!  So many things to do with it.  So my first project I wanted to do was an "All About Me" page which I translated into things that I love.  The list is huge, so, I narrowed it down!!!

Then I got myself a new multi-task printer.  If I wanted to, I could download an app for my iphone so I could print directly from it!  Of course I wanted, so I did!  Not sure of how to use it exactly, I printed the next picture, which came out a tad larger than I wanted.  But with a  mug like that, how could I not use it!  That is what scrapping is all about, right?  Using what you like, since it is for you!

I know, I know!  The picture is from my iphone and the lighting wasn't great to begin with.  But, as my son would say, "Isn't she purdy?"  Oh how she makes me happy!!!

So, check out this close-up.  The chipboard came with the collection.  I then added a prima flower, a Stampin' Up button and a Webster's Pages jewel.

The next double page layout is with the same collection.  It includes pictures from Oct 2008!  I am really far behind.  I have skipped around a bit and created out of order.  I used to scrap chronologically but realized I got stuck often on something that did not inspire me.  Now, I skip around!  Making it hard sometimes to piece things back in order.  But it works.

Sometimes, I like simple layouts but in this case, I do wonder if I should add something to the top of these pages??? hmmmm..... maybe later!  Snow is coming again and I will doing lots scrappin' and shoveling.  We can not get a break!  See you soon!

I was at my local Michael's store and saw this package of hearts for $3.99.  I decided that they would be great Valentine's for Roman to bring to school.  Of course I hoard paper, so I had plenty that would match the hearts perfectly.  I started by measuring a small square that my heart would fit on first then built out from there.  Roman chose the words that he wanted from a really old stamp set.  I knew when I bought it it would come in handy one day!  Even if it was three years later!!!  They had a ton of Martha Stewart ribbon on sale for $1.29 so I got two red rolls.  Wish I got more cause these took almost two rolls.  So, for less than $8.00 I created 30 Valentines!  Don't get me wrong, I love the boxes, already made Valentine's but, I could not resist these uber cute hearts.  Did I mention that I hoard?  I have another bag of them just starring at me!!

I LOVE V-Day!  Hope he gives the girls in his class this "Kiss" ones! 
  Hugs and Kisses,
