Latest LOs

I've been on a roll the past couple of days.  No scrapping was done yesterday as I had a terrible headache and spent the afternoon and evening in bed.  Feel bad because I missed the Chapman Reception, but I just wasn't going to be good company.   But I have been able to get some scrapping in and have been whipping them out like hot cakes!  And I think they are some of my BEST scrapping!








Favorite Birthday Year

So here I am participating in a challenge at the SSD Blog.  And I must admit that I *really* only started going over their because I was hoping to make Traci Reed's CT.  Of course, everyone knows that I received the rejection letter, but I have really enjoyed participating over a SSD in their challenge area so I have continued hanging out over there.  This week, one of the challenges on their blog was to scrap about our favorite birthday so far, and I must admit that my 30th birthday was the BEST birthday I've had in a long time.  And I have LOs to document it instead of just blogging about it.  You all can feel like you were there with me!  :)

Dreams Come True

N and J are at Disney.  I'm soooo jealous.  She sent me these photos and I had to scrap them immediately.  Click LO for credits.


Taking time to eScape

So I participated in a stamp class last night entitled eScape.  The purpose was to take a break from technology and emails and spend time just having some good old stamping fun.  The cards are super cute and the wrap is even cuter.

See what  I mean?  And of course, this class made me remember, that regardless of all the digital artwork out there.  Regardless of how quick and sometimes easy it is to just sit down at the computer and create something, there is nothing like sitting down and stamping a handmade card and then mailing it out to show how much you care about someone.  And so, for the majority of today, I sat down, and created baby announcement for a friend of mine who is expecting at the end of July.  I used this card as my inspiration and changed it up a bit to help make it just perfect for Emmy.  Emmy and Jaimie found out they were expecting in April.  They have been trying to get pregnant for several  years with no luck.  In fact, I've had both my children in the time they've been trying.  Emmy quit her job to relieve some major stress and quit buying and taking home pregnancy tests because she couldn't handle the disappointment of the constant negative.  She goes into the doctor's office for routine appointment and learns she's pregnant.  Doctor gives her an EDD and then schedules an u/s appointment the following week to double check the EDD.  At that appointment, Emmy learns that she is not only pregnant, but TWENTY FOUR WEEKS pregnant.  She now has 4 months to prepare for baby.  Eek!  Talk about a surprise.  So to continue with the theme, they have decided to wait until delivery to learn the gender of little baby.  This made making baby announcements a little difficult, but I am pleased with my results. 



 All items used in this project by Stampin' Up!  Cardstock in Barely Banana, Certainly Celery, and Soft Sky.  Grosgrain Ribbon in Barely Banana.  Ink is Soft Sky and Chocolate Chip.  Corners created using Ticket Punch.  Stamp Set used is Bundle of Joy.

That's my gift to her.  25 baby announcements.  I hope she's pleased.  I am :)

New Layouts

I've been scrapping and designing this week.  Trying to get my newest template pack out by Friday, but it's been a busy week with a very long weekend past and future so all I've done is sit down to scrap a bit.  But I'm having fun while Hannah is at VBS and Cayden is playing in the playroom!  Now if I could get motivated to do the floor in the playroom - I actually did get Hannah's bedroom CLEAN!  I should take a photo to commemorate the moment!!  LOL.  Anyway, I've been swimming in the evenings (okay swam, yesterday, and will again tonight).  And then scrapping in the evenings and daytime while Hannah isn't here.  It's amazing how much I can get down with only one kid around.  But I do miss my VBS going gal!

Okay, the layouts.  All LOs were created with Get Your Groove On by Sherri Tierney (yay!) and with my newest, never been released templates!  I absolutely think the colors in this kit are fabulouso!




And then this LO was created using a variety of products by Karla Marano.  Photo is of Grandma Lavonna (our newly adopted grandma) and her "grandkids."


I think that's all for today.  I'm working on a girly LO for the It's Elementary, My Dear Scrapper challenge over at Elemental Scraps.  If you haven't checked it out, you should!

I finally finished the LO I've been working on since Monday.  FINALLY.  Now, realize I haven't been working constantly, I've just been coming back to it when I get the chance.  And now, it's done.  And sooooo cute!!!  


I used Get Your Groove On by Sherri Tierney.  Template is from July 2007 - DSD Kit Playful. Sunglass Alpha is from Karla Marano's latest grab bag. Font is my handwriting by Darcy Baldwin.

Been working on

an adorable LO using Sherri Tierney's kit, Get Your Groove On on and off all day long.  I get down to the end of the LO and my computer just turns off.  Oh the joys of technology.  It was a cute LO, too, entitled "Little Squirts."  You'll just have to wait and see what it turns into.  Grrr.  But for the time being, isn't this kit just the cutest summery kit ever?!?!

And lastly, but not least, I'm so excited to share with you all that I've been chosen to serve on Sherri Tierney's Create Team.  This is a big deal to me because when I first started digiscrappin', I used nearly all of Sherri's stuff.  I took about a 6 month break, but started up again and couldn't find her.  I tracked her down year this year and have been DYING for her to have a CT Call.  She did, I applied, and BAM!  I'm now one of her girls!  I'm just soooo excited.  When I got the email I said, "Wheeeee!"  The about LOs were made using her products!


So that's my life in a nutshell right now.  Tomorrow will be a busy day for us!  Mondays and Tuesdays always are.  Have a good one!  XOXO - R

Is it terrible to feel bad when you've applied for the Creative Team of someone you've followed since she began designing - before she was selling her designs - only to be rejected not once, but twice.  And I love her stuff  - I always have.  But I'm not feeling the love here.  LOL

Anyway, that's it. . just my little pity party.  I got the rejection letter AGAIN.  Better luck next time, right?

I'm still blessed to serve on the CTs of several AMAZING designers.  Now I can continue to devote more time to their products!

Here are my latest LOs -

Tag, I'm it . . . again

So, I've been tagged once again.  I feel silly playing this game, especially because I feel like I need to think of 7 more random things about me.  We'll see how I do.

I have been tagged by K of Designed by K.  K is one of the ADS Designs.  Here's what I am supposed to do:
1. Link my tagger and list these rules.
2. Share 7 facts about myself...some weird, some random.
3. I must tag 7 people at the end of this post with links to their blogs.
4. Leave a comment on their blog telling them I tagged them
7 facts
1.  My immediate family growing up all celebrated their birthdays 2-3 days a part from one another during the Summer, except me.  I was born in January.
2. I live in a full house - 1 husband, 2 kids, 3 dogs, and 1 cat.  But I take good care of the house so you'd never know we have all those animals. 
3. I'm addicted to Sonic Coke - but I'm trying to cut it out of my diet.
4. I'm also addicted to Starbucks Skinny Vanilla Lattes, iced or hot, depending on the time of year.  And I'm not cutting that out of my diet.  And yes, DH supports it.  LOL
5. I am certified to teach High School English, but I've never used it to do so.  I taught the 5th grade for 2 years before staying home with my kids.
6. I have experience doing accounts payable but have never gone to school to learn that trade. 
7. I'm a fast learner.  You usually only have to tell me things once and I remember it.

2. Lisa Jo

3. Jess

4. Scrappity

5. Gripdesigns

Not a Nerd?

Ha!  Who would have thought!  I never realized I'm not a nerd.  That's so funny to me.  I'm starting to participate more and more at Sweet Shoppe Designs and they have a Blog Challenge that is just so funny, I had to play along.  How nerdy am I?  I took this quiz to find the answer.

I am nerdier than 38% of all people. Are you a nerd? Click here to find out!

Apparently, I'm a nerd wannabe.  Don't know exactly what that means. 

I'm "almost" a nerd.  I guess I should be thankful!!  LOL.


And here are a couple of the LOs I've been working on late at night while the kids are sleeping.
