Done Like Disney

Finally, after only a year and half, I have finished my Disney album! It feels so good to have it all done. It is by far the largest album I have ever completed. I am not going to lie, I gave myself a big pat on the back after I slid the last page into its protector. Now it’s time to catch up on all my other pictures, oh and don’t even mention my wedding album ;)

Here are the last pages in my Disney album:

Two Years Ago Today...

...I married my best friend!!

I can't believe that it has already been two years. Some days it feels like yesterday, while others I can't remember what it was like before we were husband and wife.

To celebrate our anniversary and help make our third year of marriage the best yet, I have come up with a little project. Everyday, whether we are together or not, I will tell my husband one thing I love about him. It may seem trivial, but sometimes I take advantage of what I have. Sometimes I dwell on the negative instead of focusing on positive. Sometimes I do not realize what a great thing I have. I love him very much, I just forget to show him that sometimes. So, whether it be in a note, in a text or in a heartfelt conversation I will make a point to tell him one thing, big or little, that I love about him. Of course, I will keep track of everything and on our next anniversary I will put everything into a mini album. I will keep you posted on my progress!

I know I have been the worst blogger EVER, but I hope to change that in the coming weeks. I have lots of great ideas, I just need to execute them. I do have lots of new pages to share, I will scan/photograph them this week.

Have a gooder!!

AMR Survivor

There is a survivor challenge going on right now on the AMR boards. This week it was a music challenge. I chose to do a page about my wedding song. This is a picture of the Hot Hubby and I dancing our first dance as a married couple. Our song was I Can Love You by Gary Allan. I printed the lyrics on a transparency and layered it on top of the photo. Our wedding colours were pink and brown, so I thought it was fitting to use those colours on the page.

There are some wonderful entries into this competition, so it if you have a second head over to the boards and vote for your favorite one. The voting isover now. I didn't mnake the second round, but I really enjoyed creating this page.

The lyrics to the song are:

I can’t stop your heart from breaking,
Can’t make right mistakes we’ve made,
Can’t dry your crying eyes,
For my little angels sake,
I can’t make the sun keep smiling,
Or blow away the clouds,
There’s some things in this old world girl,
I can’t do nothing bout,

But I can love you,
Like I’ve always done,
And when the hard times come a knocking,
Honey you won’t ever see me run,
I won’t leave you,When you need a friend,
Can’t make the bad days that much better,
Baby than they’ve ever been,
But I can love you,

Can’t hold back the ocean waves,
Or stop a sinking ship,
Can’t make a mountain move,
Or tell you how to live,

But I can love you,
Like I’ve always done,
And when the hard times come a knocking,
Honey you won’t ever see me run,
I won’t leave you,
When you need a friend,
Can’t make the bad days that much better,
Baby than they’ve ever been,

But I can love you,

And I won’t leave you,
When you need a friend,
Can’t make the bad days that much better,
Baby than they’ve ever been,

But I can love you,
But I can love you.

It is another nasty spring morning. The snow is falling and the roads are a mess. I hope spring will hurry up and get here!!

Have a gooder!!

So This Is Spring!?!?!?

When I woke up this morning, this is what I saw out my window!!

It was crazy!! It was total white-out conditions at one point in time. Gotta love spring in Alberta ;) At least the snow has stopped now and it is starting to warm up. Thank goodness we didn’t take my winter tires off yet! And to think a local golf course opened up yesterday. I don’t think too many people will be teeing of today ;)

Things have been so busy lately I have hardly had anytime to scrapbook. There is an online crop tonight on the AMR boards. I am going to try and do a couple of the challenges, but I think the hot hubby and I are going out for dinner, so I will have to wait and see. I am itching to get some pages done so hopefully I can join in the fun a bit!

I hope to have some new pages to share soon!
Have a gooder!!

I have this great file folder that I have labelled and divided into months. The plan was to pre-make cards and put them in them into the appropriate sections. This would remedy my constant panic card making a half hour before an event. That was the plan anyways. After having this folder for a couple of years now I finally pre-made a few cards this week. It is so much easier to do them in batches. It goes way faster, and I only have to clean up once (yes Michelle, I cleaned up when I was done)!

Here are the cards that I made:

I hope to make another batch of cards soon, but I really need to get working on my Disney album again, so we will see!

I hope to have more pages or cards to share soon!!

It’s All About Love!!

The one thing about February is that is full of love!! I subscribed to the AMR’s monthly kit, and this month was fabulous. Heather did such a wonderful job selecting everything, all of her hard work definitely showed! It was full of reds and pinks and all things love. I was so excited to rip my package open and play with all of my new goodies. To start with I finished half of the February challenge over on the AMR board.

Here is my layout about someone I truly love:

Of course, it is of my hot hubby!! He has this look he always gives me. No matter what mood I am in, it always makes me smile. Even though he drives me crazy sometimes, I love that boy more than anything.

Here is my layout about something I love:

I had to go with Diet Pepsi. I usually have one a day. It’s just like people and their coffee (which I could really give or take), if I don’t have one a day I start to feel cranky. I am know its not good for me, but I love that stuff!!

Ken is off skateboarding this evening with his buddies, so I hope to finish the challenge and create some more pages.

Have a gooder!!

Where Does the Time Go!?!?

Wow, I can’t believe how long it has been since I posted (so much for my unofficial resolution). Things have been super busy around here, which seems to becoming the norm. I have managed to scrapbook a bit, but nearly as much as would like.

I decided to try and re-organize me craft room. I went through all of my paper and embellishments and purged!! I can’t believe all of the stuff I got rid of. I am passing everything on to my friends and whatever they do not want I am going to donate. It was kind of depressing thinking of all of the money that I spent on everything, but it felt even better to downsize my collection.

The room isn’t perfect yet, but as the Hot-Hubby says, at least I can see floor ;)

One thing I did finish this last little while was my sister’s album!! Here are the last pages that I did. The paper I used was from my first kit from All Moments Remembered. Heather did such a fab job selecting everything in the kit. I love it, and can’t wait to play more.

I am off to clean off my table and hopefully get some more pages done!!
Have a Gooder!!

It's All About the Hot-Hubby!

Sadly, I have no new layouts to show. I spent a bit of time cleaning my craft room, but that is as far as I got. The room needs a total overhaul, and I am just working up the courage to dive in.

On a more productive note, I went to the gym yesterday morning and then baked up a storm in the afternoon. I made Banana Bread, Banana Bran Muffins and Oatmeal cookies. The Hot-Hubby was pretty excited, he loves when I bake, but I haven’t had time to do any in awhile.

Speaking of the hot hubby, I saw this on another blog and thought it looked fun. I always talk about the Hot-Hubby, but I thought I would share some more about him/us!

What’s his name? Kenneth (but I only call him that when he is making me mad!!)

How long have you been together? 5 years (we actually started dating Valentine’s Day of 03’)

How long did you date? 3 ½ years (plus a month, way back in the day, but that is a story for another day)

How old is he? 28

Who eats more? Him, it’s not even a contest.

Who said I love you first? Him, he let it slip when we were stranded in Athabasca for two days.

Who is taller? Him, but really, who isn’t taller than me ;)

Who is smarter? Hmmm, I would say I am more “book” smart, but he is definitely more “Handy” smart. It is absolutely amazing what he can make out of some hunks of metal, he can fix almost anything, his knowledge of motorized (gas or battery operated) is incredible. Though I would say it’s a tie in the math department, we are both good with numbers.

Who does laundry? Both of us!! He does his and I do mine. Towels and what not are split about 50/50.

Who does the dishes? Both of us. Ken loads and empties the dishwasher more than me, but refuses to do any hand washing, so I get to do all of that.

Who sleeps on the right side of the bed? If you are standing at the foot of the bed facing the headboard, I am on the right side.

Who pays the bills? Me, what can I say, I am the daughter of an accountant.

Who mows the lawn? Him, and I have never and never will offer to help either. I am allergic to grass and hate the smell that occurs during the mowing.

Who cooks dinner? Me, 95% of the time, though Ken does make a mean Grill Cheese Sandwich.

Who drives when you are together? Him, almost all the time.

Who is more stubborn? We are both stubborn, but Ken takes the title hands down. He is the most stubborn person I know.

Who kissed who first? Wow, that seems like forever ago. He kissed me.

Who asked out who first? Him, I gave him my number at a bar (I know how romantic) and he called me and asked me out.

Who proposed? Him. Poor guy was so stressed!

Who has more siblings? We have the same. He has one brother and I have one sister.

Who wears the pants in the family? I would say me and he would say him, so I guess we both do!

And here is a picture of the two of us from our Wedding (because what is a blog update without pictures)!

I will have new layouts to share soon!!
Have a gooder!!

No Mojo :)

I haven’t updated in awhile because I don’t really have anything to share. I haven't stepped foot in my craft room for a week. I was going to play in there tonight, but I am just not in the mood. Hopefully, my mojo will come back to me soon!!

Last week was my nephew’s birthday and the hot-hubby and I went to his birthday party. He loved the present the Ken picked out for him. It was a mini skate ramp and boarder (just like Uncle Kenny!).

Can you guess how old he turned?

Uncle Kenny helping put together the ramp.

I may not be creating a lot these days, but I am sure reading a lot. In the past week I have read The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls and A Thousand Splendid Suns by Khaled Hosseini. I loved both of them!! I read A Thousand Splendid Suns in two days, so you know it was great, I could barely put it down. I am going to start reading The Memory Keeper’s Daughter next, but after than I have no books. Does anyone have any suggestions??

Hopefully I will have some new pages to share very soon!!
Have a gooder ;)

New Pages!!

I was able to spend a few hours in my scrapbook room yesterday and it was fabulous!! The hot-hubby had to work, so I decided to play!! I started an album for my sister for Christmas. Unfortunately, I ran out of time and did not finish it. I gave her what I had done already and promised to give her all the other pages once I was finished. She absolutely loved it, which gave me lots of motivation. All of the pictures are of her and her friends are from my wedding. They are a great bunch of ladies, and I have known them for many, many years now. Here is a picture of my sister and me, my only sibling, followed by the pages I made yesterday.

Today I am cleaning out our computer room. As soon as we moved in it became the catch all room. It has been driving me crazy for a while, so I decided to tackle it today. One room at a time, I will get this place organized!!

Have a gooder!!

Welcome to 2008!!

Happy New Year Everyone!! Hot-hubby and I had a very quiet New Years Eve. We spent the evening alone, ordered a pizza, watched a movie and then the fire works on the TV. Well, actually we can see the high, large fireworks from our house. It was probably the last time we will see them from our house though. Once they build the houses behind us I think we will lose our view. Here are a couple pictures from the evening.

I am not usually one to set New Year resolutions, but this year I decided to write down my goals for the year.

Take better care of myself
Lose 35 lbs. Two years ago I lost 50lbs, but I have since gained 10 back. It is time for me to get serious and lose the final pounds.

Exercise more! I used to go to the gym, but the last few months have been lacking any kind of exercise. I need to get my butt moving!!

Eat healthier. I have started to eat fast food and potato chips again!! They are my vice. I could never eat another chocolate again and be fine with it. Take away my salty snacks and I would be devastated. I am not going to cut these treats out for good, but they are going to become rare treats.

Take more pride in my appearance. I rarely wear make-up or dress “nice”, yet I feel so much better about myself when I do. It is amazing how good a little cover-up and blush can make you feel.

Be Creative
I need to take more time and scrapbook. It is a hobby that makes me so happy, yet I rarely make time to do it. It is time to start!!

Finish all of the projects I started this past year. I am tired of seeing half finished albums and pages of notes of things I want to do.

Try some new things. I love the altered items and mini-books that I see other people making. I have the supplies, it is time I use them.

Convince myself that it doesn’t have to be perfect!! I will not let myself stress about every page.

Get Organized
I am very disorganized right now and feel out of control. I like things neat and orderly, but have let things get out of control.

Take the extra time and put everything away in its home. I am infamous for having piles of crap around just waiting to be carried up a flight of stairs and put away.

Purge the craft room. I have way to much stuff that I am never going to use. It is time for me to sort it all out and donate the stuff I no longer need. I am lucky enough to have a room for my hobby, it is time I used it to it’s full potential!

Wow, I feel better just getting all of this in writing! I will keep you updated on my progress. I have a feeling that 2008 is going to be a great year!!

I am wishing everyone a fabulous 2008!!
