4 Years Ago Today…

In front of our family and friends the Hot Hubby and said I Do!  I can't believe it has been 4 years already.  It seems just like yesterday I was looking down the aisle at my husband to be.

I haven't started our wedding album yet.  The whole idea scares me ;)   I have done a couple of pages with our wedding pictures including the layout below which I put in our 2006 album.

I *heart* Studio Calico

After drooling over the kits forever, I finally broke down and ordered their kits.  When the I received the box on my door step I was so excited.  I haven’t had that much time to play with it yet, but here are the first two pages that I made using some of the Back 40 Kit.  I can’t wait for the next box to show up on my door step!

The first page shows the pictures that the hot hubby and I had taken to celebrate our 1st anniversary (our 4th anniversary is tomorrow!).

This page shows the “adventure” I had babysitting my nephew.  After reading Wacky Wednesday we both got a little wacky ;)

I Need a Vacation!!

Around this time ever year I start getting the vacation itch.  The Hot Hubby and I have been lucky enough to get away for a week the last two winters and I really hope we can sneak off again this year.

In December 2008 we celebrated my parents 30th wedding anniversary in Punta Cana.  We celebrated Christmas at the resort, and let me tell you I didn’t miss the snow at all!

Here are some pages that I did for that vacation that I never got around to posting.  Looking at these pages makes long for the beach and the sun…

Falling Back into Creativity…

The air around here already has the fall crispness in it, which means it is time to start scrapbooking again.  It seems like the summer sucks all of the creativity out of me.

To get the dust off of this blog I am going to post some pages that I completed in the spring.

This page is one that I completed at the National Scrapbook Day Crop at Urban Scrapbook.  We were given a kit and asked to create anything with the contents.  I was lucky enough to be chosen as the winner and came home with a brand new Slice Machine :)  This is definitely one of my favourites.

Happy Day

After some crazy weather the last few weeks the sun is finally shining and summer is upon us!

I needed to make a birthday card for one of my closest friends, so I decided to try a sketch from 2Sketches4You.


I hope she likes it!

Back to Reality…

After three months of long days of work and chaos as home, due to the long hours at work, things have finally started to slow down.  I have even had time to upload some the cards and layouts I managed to get done in the last little while to my computer.

Speaking of chaos, my craft room is a disaster!  The only time I have spent in there the last few months is to throw together some cards, after which I never cleaned up.  The room desperately needs some reorganization. I really struggle with organizing this room and it seems like I clean more in there than I “play”.  My goal over the next few weeks is to make it more functional for me.  Wish me luck…

Here are few of the cards I have made the last little while (aka the reasons why my room is such a mess).

30th Birthday Card for a friend


Valentine’s Day Card for the Hot Hubby (notice the mess in the background).


Birthday Card for my FIL.  My in-laws were leaving for Mexico the next day so I thought it was fitting.  I lifted this from Splitcoaststampers.

Another Test

One of these days I will get to write a real post, but until then I will just keep trying new gadgets ;)

Why haven't I been posting? Because, I have been here over 70 hours a week...

I need a holiday....

Challenge Pages

Last Friday I was able to attend a crop at a local scrapbook store with a friend of mine. Since my creativity seems to be still recovering from my vacation I did a few more pages for the Jump Start January Scraplift Challenge.

This is my lift of Sweet Life. This one of my favourite engagement pictures of the hot hubby and me.
Then I did a couple more pages for my 2007 album. I can't help, I have to do my pages in chronological order. That being said, my next big project is an album about my trip to Vegas earlier this month. It will be such a treat to scrapbook new pictures!

This my lift of Wedding Countdown.
This is my lift of i love Julie and Julia.
I have been busy the last few days printing pictures, so hopefully I will have new pages to share soon!

Jump Start January

After spending most of November and December working on Christmas gifts and wedding stuff for my sister I have finally been able to start working on my albums again. It was nice to clean off my table and get creative again.

To help me get back in the groove I am joing the Jump Start January Scraplift Challenge at Two Peas. So far I have manafed to complete three layouts from the challenge and hope to do a few more this week.

This is a lift of Lisafisa's Thankful layout. The picture in the layout is from the Hot Hubby and mine's 3rd Anniversary photoshoot.
This layout is a lift of Kelly Goree's Best Santa layout. These pictures are from nephew's 4th birthday. He just turned 7 last week, so as you can see, I have lots of catching up to do.
This layout is my take on Nicole Martel's Close layout. This is are recap and the last page for my 2006 album!! Hopefully I will have more layouts to share soon!!
