My dream

I'm looking for a good online store that carries the latest and greatest. My little shoebox, October afternoon ect. Any suggestions? Has anyone purchased from here?

I think the Bo Bunny Mango collection is fabulous and transfers to layouts amazingly. I love the browns, greens, and oranges in this line. I only bought 2 sheets thinking it would be hard to work with but nope loved it. It's on sale here.

During the same shopping adventure, I also purchased the Cosmo Early bird collection pack for $8.99. What a steal huh? I was limited on funds but they were running a sale on cosmo and had all their craft packs on sale $8.99. I was really hard not to purchase another set of Mr. Campy. (yep I'm still hoarding that one, its so pretty I cant cut it, not to mention I don't know how to use it either) and lil man was calling my name too. In the end, I figure Early bird would be more verstile for me.

Thus far, this is my second page from the package, and I still have so much of it left. I just love that. Its a page about who else but B, and my love for that child. Lately, I've had "baby"on the brain, but as most of you know my doctors were not able to tell me any odds for that possibility. I hit the lottery with Blake, and as most of you know thats a once in a lifetime kind of even, so I guess you can tell by now, but I'm a glass half empty kind of gal. The journaling here sums it up, it reads My dream, My heart, My soul, My life, My everything! Enough blabbing, here is page #2.

As always the gals over at Scrapbook Challenges has brought you a new sketch. I personally didn't get a chance to do this one, but it has many possibilities. Give it a try and who knows you may be this months lucky winner for the Maya Road prize pack. Its packed full of goodies.

sketchy monday

It's Monday and that means a new sketch from Pamela over at Sscrapbook Challenges. This week she has a great one, for all levels of talent. It has so many possibilites for pure awesomeness.
Here is what I did with the sketch. I tried using a before and after pic of Blakes room like in the original sketch, but I couldnt make it look right. I really like the way it came together though, very happy with the results. Plus, these little aliens are so cute. Going to have to print these for hybird.

I also wanted to thank Scrapfit for picking me as their very first winner. I'm so thrilled. I hope I can find the time to play along with the next workout too. I really love their concept. I'll leave your with a paper and digital LO today.

Toodles for now. I must get back to work. Happy Monday, Cathy

Scrapfit early bird

How was your weekend? Mine was very tiring and too short!! Keeping promises we made, Saturday, we took my brother in law shopping for new school clothes. About 4 hours later, we left with 5 complete outfits and sore feet. Starving, we stopped by "The Varsity" for dinner then drove Timmy home. Sunday was spent cleaning the kitchen and running errands. Of course, come Monday it was back to work for me. After working 14 days straight, I didn't find a minute to rest.

Have you seen the new challenge site out there. It's called ScrapFit. My dear friend Lydia, is on the Design Team. Their first "workout" (cute huh) is to use water and ink. Here is mine.

Josh and Blake are both in bed sleeping, so that leaves me with a little scrap time. Yay. I am going to try to work with Cosmo Cricket. I've had the Mr campy line for about a year now I guess, and can never make it for for anything. Yet, I always love every ones work with the line. I am also finding Early Bird difficult too. We'll see what happens.

The list

Thanks to everyone who noticed my new hair color, before I even announced it here. I know so many people, including my husband, prefer me with a dirty blond shade, yet I needed a change. I'm considering adding lightly carmel colored highlights, but I'm not sure.

Now on to the "oh I so want that" list from summer CHA 2009. Surprisingly, its not that huge. OMG Isn't Sass's Monstrosity line gorgeous and beautiful, not to mention perfect for little mean monsters, uhhh I mean angels. I really like Jillibeans Sprouts too.

I'll be back later on this week something fun to share. Happy Wednesday everyone.

First I would like to say hello to Jocelyn and Melonie. They have experienced water leaks, floods, and the damage, terror and nightmares that come along with it. I know they would love a
happy cmoment on their blogs to add a little cheer to their day.

After 6 months, I finally scrapped Blakes christmas photos. I used Pink Paislee's Tinsel Town line, which consist of pretty pinks, greens and silver.

I like this first page, but I'm not 100% in love with it. I'm thinking about adding the word Christmas above the journal tags and below the title tag, but I'm not sure. I feel like its missing something right now. What do you think?

I'm sure by now everyone has seen the new CHA releases. What are you dying to have?
I guess I need to stop playing and get back to work now...hehe! Toodles, Cathy
