Pictures on the 25th

Check out to join in on this fun project.

Every month on the 25th for the next year grab your camara and take some pictures of that day. After one year of this you'll be glad you did. Time fly's by so fast why not take a day to celebrate the memories, it could be a good day or a bad day but at least now you'll always remember what happened on the 25th! For this project I created a tag book to scrap my memories beginning April 25, 2008!

Photo Challenge- Snooze

Jenn @ I decided to take on Friday's Photo Challenge which is a first for me but it is one I couldn't resist. I had a hard time choosing but decided Isabella's photo was it. I took this photo of her Christmas Morning 2007-Her 1st Christmas before I woke her up to see what Santa had delivered.

Winter Wonderland... IN APRIL???

When will spring finally arrive? Here is what we woke up to this morning...a blanket of new slushy snow. The trees in the back yard along the fence are Lilac bushes, this time of the year I get anxious for them to start blooming they bring so much color to our backyard. The weather here in the Midwest is always full of surprises!

Check Out The April Stamp Of The Month!

Tonight was spent with a group of friends to help celebrate a birthday for one of them, so today I spent some time making some birthday cards. Above is a sample of one of them. I decided to use our Express Postage acrylic stamp set which is also April's stamp of the month! The card is made with white card stock and the Let's Get Together paper packet. I am finding this stamp set to be so versatile...I just love it! Once again I decided to use the no waste crisscross card. When the insert is in the pocket all you see is the flower peeking out below the tab. To make the tab itself I used a circle punch and folded in half, I find adding this or ribbon helps the insert to slide out of the card's pocket a bit easier. ENJOY!!!

Lori's Journal of Scrapbooking Inspirations

Here is what I created. (So far)

I am not the person who originally created this wonderful idea, but I learned about it a few weeks ago at our meeting & fell in love it. Maybe you have seen something like this before but if not I'd like to share it with you now.

If you have tons of "heavy" catalogs, magazines, or other creative books, you can now "simplify" your stock. Many times we keep catalogs or magazines for one idea. Why not pull all the ideas you love together into one book and use that one book as your inspiration? Use a composition notebook and design the front/back how you like. For the inside I used my file folders stamp to create the tabs. Cut out your inspirations and journal what you liked about the idea. (Sometimes this helps you to remember later on what it was you first liked about the picture, was it the color combos/layout/fonts) I hope you like it & this inspires you to make your own.

I've Been Tagged

A couple of things I have completed. The criss cross card love the Just Blooms Big Pinks flowers & my reflections scrapbook page. I love to stamp on my pages for a nice variety. This color is currently retired but I am looking forward to trying all the other colors now available. I like how quick & easy it is to complete a page .With two little kids someday's that's a nice go to paper packet. When it's nap time it's my time to complete a few quick projects so that I can also get on with other items on the to do list!!! Gotta have a bit of scrappin in the day to keep mom happy it's my form of "mom time".
A few days ago I was tagged, so for this I need to share with 7 people random and/or weird facts about myself and then tag 7 others to do the same. I had to stop and think as to what I would write for this so here it is...
1. A favorite food my grandma made growing up was creamed peas on toast
2. When eating ketchup with fries I like to sprinkle pepper on the ketchup, less tangy this way
3. Nail bad habit
4. I have a fear of heights
5. Don't like rainy days
6. I have watched Y & R since I was in 7th grade ( when I lived in Hawaii I met Victor & Hope when filming scenes in Hawaii on their honeymoon. Ate lunch with both, got autographs. Both super nice people)
7. I have lived in two states, Hawaii and Minnesota love em both but miss the beach. I would much rather swim in the ocean than the lake, don't like the mucky stuff at the bottem of the lake the sand is sooo much better!

Here are the rules:
Link to the person who tagged you.
Post the rules on your blog.
Share w/ 7 people 7 random and/or weird facts about yourself we all want to know.
Tag 7 people @ the end of your post & include links to their blogs, then let each person know they are tagged by leaving a comment on their blog.
