Boy, yesterday was a stressful day, hitting refresh buttons everwhere and checking e-mails practically every second... I'm going to make it different today. I won't be so flustered. So, to calm my nerves, I'm creating pages and experimenting and loving the results.
MM Idol voting resumes Monday. Fresh start. I want to thank everyone who did or tried to vote for me. I can't even begin to tell you how much that means to me. In a contest like this, that's what decides the outcome. So, please come back and vote once more.

Friday

My March CK is here. loving it. working on some just for fun layouts. My Making Memories trimmer is here. I simply love to get packages in the mail. And I do get a lot cause, I'm always ordering stuff online...ebay, scrapbook supplies, odds and ends!
I'm noticing how my scrapbooking style has evolved. Hopefully, for the better. I'm happy because Nini is starting to take interest in scrapbooking. She's just 4 and it's interesting to look at things through her eyes.

Today is the day of 2nd round of DT uploads at the Croppers Cottage. This month's sponsor was Prima. I really loved this assignment. I simply played with the gorgeous papers and dainty accents. Aurora is by far my most fave Prima collection. So, I wanted to try someting new, well new for me at least... I don't usually do these kind of pages, but it was really fun.
I'm also really pumped about the new BG and HS. can't wait to get my hands on them!
Hi Susan, thanks for visiting me... although I'm still waiting for my March CK, I did get to see your lo about grammar while was quickly flipping through at the store. Love the style and colors. Can't wait for a closer and better look. BTW, I also loved your Slices of Key West lo in a previous issue. YOU ARE ROCKING!

Happy Day


I couldn't sleep last night. I went to bed at 3. Of course, I was scrapbooking! what else can keep me up that late! But then I couldn't sleep. So, I lay on bed and listened to the rain, the wind and other noises that I couldn't tell the sources of. I can't tell when I dozed off. I woke up to a very grumpy Ashis. Of course, he won't say a thing. But this time, instead of playing the guessing game, Nini and I made him a card. I made the dog in a hat and Nini wrote my name and put the doll in the doll in the dog's mouth.
That put a smile on his face.
I'm making a travel album of California road trip that we took in 2005. Yeah, I'm that far behind and I'm totally ok with that. I believe in working on stuff that I want to at any given time and I don't even care about chronological order any more.

Happy Valentine's Day.



A little early but special nonetheless... Ashis isn't the kind who believes in romantic expressions... In fact, he believes that love is best expressed in taking responsibility and that cards, gifts, etc. are not what makes things work out between two people. As for me, I need both... kinda high maintenance I guess. So, its pretty obvious that Valentine's Day is just another day of the year in our house. Not that, I haven't gotten any Valentine's gift from him in the past, but its not something I expect. So, last night I was pleasantly surprised when I got a bouquet of red roses and box full of heart-shaped chocolates. It was so sweet!

My brain is fried...no mojo, no push! So, I'm walking around mojoless. Not good!


This I did a long time back. I need fresh energy and inspiration right now.

My latest fascination is clear stamps Autumn Leaves, KI Memories and of course, Technique Tuesday.
Also having fun with Prima Papers. The Aurora Collection is my latest favorite. YUM!

Twice? Back to back? in 1 day?

Ok... I'm a messy blogger...can't seem to get organized.
Here's a shout out to my friend Cami...Girl, you are rocking! Fancy Pants, Technique Tuesday, Queen and Co. ...MAJOR WOW! Also wanted to let you know that we(me and kiddos) always have fun when we are with you and the girls.

I'm back




This has been a mixed feeling week.
There were some upsets and some happiness. Kids are sick with strep throat. I'm too exhausted for anything. Spent a lot of money on scrapbooking ...again!
I won a prize from Making Memories through Ruban Rouge. I'm getting a precision trimmer. Hopefully, finally, I'll be able to cut straight! Here are some of the stuff I did recently ... well I can't seem to upload photos again!

Nope got it!
