Page Plans Sketch #6

This sketch was so great to work with the page came together very quick. I'm so happy I have been wanting to scrap these photos for a while and when I saw this sketch I knew they would work. I used products from the May kit from Scrapbook Heaven plus Prima flowers and Heidi Swapp Crown.

Journaling reads: Tiffany is celebrating her 4th birthday at the Grand Floridian Cinderella dinner. She blows out her candle with Perla the Mouse by her side. I hope you enjoy your birthday cupcake.

I got my goodies from the Stuff a Box swap!!!

Wow!!! I got some absolutely fabulous stuff in this swap! We had a choice of two priority mail boxes to stuff. There was sooo much stuff in the box. I counted 78 pieces of paper plus a ton of embellishments also. I am sooooo excited to play with all my new goodies!

I have been loving arrows lately and I got a nice assortment of arrows. I also really like the felt flowers! A couple other cool things that might not stand out in the pics were a nice pouch from CK and a silver memo board! Out of all of this stuff there were only 2 pieces of paper I already owned and a package of CK flowers! I can't believe what a great box of goodies I got!!

When can I do another swap??? LOL

Scrapperie Challenge Week 2

Last Weeks challenge was to make a card that was not a square or circle. After reading the challenge I automatically that of this flower shape, I have a template which made it sooo easy just time consuming to cut it all out. It was a fun challenge. YEAH!!! I'm moving on to week 3.

Layouts were pilling up

All the layouts I have been completing lately have been pilling up on the bookshelf. So I decided to put them away in their albums. There were 36 LO's to put away. UGH!! It turned into a HUGE task! My almost 2 yr old had litterally RIPPED the cover off one of the albums - he loves looking thru the albums, and somehow had a second one apart as well.

Well I had to get a new album and transfer all the pages from the ripped album into the new one then add more page protectors - of course the holes didn't line up so had to punch new holes, cropadile came in handy. Also I figured since the album was apart I would put in longer posts. So I finally got all that album done I swear it took like 2 hours. OK, That album is full and I had to start on a second album for my son. I can't believe I actually had 2 albums in the closet I swear I forgot about them, they came in super handy though. Now I am actually getting something accomplished about half the LO's are put away, but it seems like I have been working at this all night so I gave up on putting the LO's in the family album - the alrgest stack of course. Maybe I will tackle the rest of these tomorrow, LOL!!! Like that will happen.

Yesterday I went to the big Mega Meet in Michigan, its a large scrapbook show for consumers. Its open from 10-6 and I was there ALL day. I had a great time meeting Carrie face-to-face who is the editor for Michigan Scrapbooker Magazine and I also met one of the ladies I chat with on a message board I frequent. It was great meeting you two ladies.

There were tons of booths and some unbelievable deals. Two of the best deals were from Queen & Co. and also Heidi Swapp. Fab deals from both manufacturers. The picture is of my goodies from the Heidi Swapp booth.

I hope everyone had a great National Scrapbook Day!

I had a busy weekend of scrapping. One of the message boards I frequent Scrap 4 Life was having a cyber crop and auction, what fun! I got a ton of challenges done and even a card for mother's day. Wow its done a whole week in advance. I won't post the card until after Mother's Day don't want the receiver to see it. The Turkey time LO was just one of the sketch challenges I completed. Now that the weekend is over maybe I can relax a bit, but I doubt it with 3 kids running around.
How much did you get done this weekend for NSD? Leave me a comment and you could win a rak from me.
