And I wont get lost in your world

I have some super sweet scrappy news to share (say that 5 times fast).

Thaz right.

There is a new challenge up why not go check it out? This is my take on it using the new Echo park For the Record line.

I would say I love to a fault...I have a very tender heart. Sometimes I wish it was a little harder. I need a hard candy coating for it. :)

Last day of March and man did it come and go quickly. April fools day is tmw...Oh yeah that's right it is ha! I have NOTHING planned for it. I don't usually. My husband is the one who tries to trick us. He has had a few good ones too. One day I will get him back...One day.

Aria's birthday was Saturday.
I made these delicious Lemon Meringue cupcakes. OMG so good! Everyone loved them.

She is my star. She was playing Karaoke revolution here singing her little heart out even tho it wasn't her turn. She had a lovely time.

In other news I am sick. Was sick yesterday and couldn't crawl out of bed this morning. I called in sick to "work". I HATE doing that. I debated with myself for a good 30 mins and when I tried to get up and get ready my body just wasn't having it. I knew I would be miserable so I sucked it up and called in. I always feel the next day when you come back people are mad or thinking things...Yeah I know. Nerd.

I sat on this couch from 8am till about 7pm. Totally vegged. I started feeling a bit better and decided I really need to get SOMETHING done. I mean I couldn't even enjoy the day really. That totally sucked. I did however clean a bit of my mess up and organized some scrap-disaster. This is where I ended up.

Next post I will share my Flea Market finds from last weekend. YAY!

You had my heart inside of your hands

First off have you seen this?

Huge mega contest going on over at GCD. There are two actually. I think you should try. I really do. :) Go here to find out more.

Wow extern has been rough. I felt so lost those 3 days. I am however getting use to it. I can not wait till it is done and I hopefully find the right Doctor/office for me. I know god will push me in that direction. He wont steer me wrong. I trust in him and put it all in his hands. I know you dont see me talk about religion or god to much on my blog. I dont believe in pushing my beliefs on other people. Just know that is not what I am doing. Just giving credit where credit is due (in my life).

My birthday was also the first day of extern. Not nice. We had a party Saturday and we had a few friends and family join us. My hubby took me shopping for some clothes (pics to follow of me in the outfit *wink*) and my mommy, grand and aunt gave me money ( my very fav). I get to go shopping ( my other fav).

One of the cutest pressies I recieved was from my sister. She first handed me a tiny box. Inside were the sweetest little easter bunnies (she knows me to well). Then I opened another package and it was bedding for a small pet...I really was confused at first. Then BIL came in with the rest.

Yep a sweet little cage with a tiny little fuzzy inside.

I named her Matilda. My kids and I LOVE that movie. It just seemed perfect when it popped into my head. Isnt she so sweet?

The kids adore her. Constantly want to hold her. She has even pooped in our hands and they still want to hold her! LOL! Every time I hear "poop in his hand, poop in his hand!" Play over and over in my head.

Nothing I can share on the crafting front today. I did finish a few deadlines and have a few more to start. Oh and I have some more fun crafty news to share soon Woot! Actually 2 fun crafty things. Stay tuned for that.

Lastly...Hello to all my new followers. Thanks for stopping by!

From glen to glen, and down the mountain side

Happy St. Patricks Day everyone! Are you wearing green? If not give yourself a little pinch from me hehe. Hello to all the blog hoppers so lovely to see your comments! I hope you get lucky and win the 150.00 worth of PSA product!

What do you have planned today? Did you make anything crafty? Decorate your house? I don't usually decorate to much for St. Patty's day but I think I am going to start doing that more...IF I can find the time.

I made this little shamrock "plant" for someone special. I plan to put in the card "I am lucky to have you for a friend". Very easy to make.

Used a Psa stamp for the middle of the shamrock and all the paper is from the March AMM kit.Very simple to make and a cute gift. Wouldn't you say?

Today I am going to be making Corned beef and cabbage for the kids. I never have made it but my mom use to make it or us. Tasty. I think the kids will get a big kick out of it.

Lastly hubby bought me some green chrysanthemums. I put them in my fav little milk glass pot.
I love them.

Your next stop on your blog st patty's journey is...

Take all the courage you have left

I have some super happy news to share. Seriously so freakin happy. I was practically jumping up and down when I got the call. The person on the other end made my month, maybe even year. Are you wondering what could be so exciting? Ok I will spill it.

I am now the proud member of the GCD design team!

Are you doing a happy dance for me? I did. Just the brief 10 mins I was on the phone with Heidi made me even happier to be on this team. She is truly a fabulous gal.

I couldn't be happier to work with such a wonderful lady and wicked awesome product. I only apply for things that I truly love and I truly love their lines.

Speaking of truly love I managed to make a few things at the crop I went to on Saturday with the new A Million Memories kit. Met my totally cool friend Kristi there and we talked and scrapped. I actually was productive that day. I worked my little heart out.

This page is based on the sketch that our DT member Wendy came up with. You can play along and win a $10 GC. Check it out.

The paper in the kit reminds me of family history. I thought it was perfect for this picture.

Also made a ATC for the new prompt at Simply ATC.

Come trade with me!

I have one more page in the making and a cute little St. Patty's day project. That will be posted on the 17th. I am a part of a blog hop with PSA. You can win $150.00 worth of product! Make sure to check back on the 17th for more details!

P.S. & tmw is my birthday! Could this week get any better?? ;)

Collecting your jar of hearts

I love making tiny art. It is less intimidating and a great use for all those scraps or papers that you just dont use or need. I save lots of things. I am a hoarder or boarder line hoarder lol! I mean my girl cave looks nothing like those houses you see on tv. LOL! I am sure it could tho if I dont watch myself.

I made this the other day. Just for fun...Just because.

I also made this page using some GCD. I dont know if I like it to much. There is just somthing about it I m not feeling.

I do however love this picutre. I mean who wouldnt love to stand in a patch of tiny daisies.

Pit and Fissure sealants went off without a hitch. I am super stoked I did 4 patients and I did them well. It wasnt to bad. My problem is I have to many feelings. I put myself in the patients situation and I start to feel bad if they have sat there for a while with their mouth open. Then I get nervous...Well you get the picture. Like I said tho everything went well and I am so glad it is over haha!

I have less then 4 days left of school! Can you believe it?! It has went by so fast. I am excited and nervous. I dont feel like I am prepared enough. I guess we shall see right?

Time to play a little. Happy Thursday.

Who do you think you are

I have to say my mantel has sat untouched since I cleared off all the valentines day stuff. I actually have been making pages instead of crafting for the mantel. I DO however have a few ideas. I will be working on those soon.

As I said I have been making pages a lot. Here are a few of those pages.
I made this one for the challenge over at Lilybee designs. Used Domestic Bliss. My crafty space. Why is it after you take a pic you notice things. Like the letters are weird. I fixed them but didnt fix the photo. Just know space is a little closer. *wink*

I also used Domestic bliss for this page. Love Lilybee designs. I only recently discovered them. I was out of the loop for a bit. Me being silly last year at lunch with the hubs.

Used sass Paper Crush. I really love that line. Me and hubby this year on valentines day.

This month is jammed packed with stuff and I have a feeling it is going to go by super fast. I got my extern site. I only have a few more weeks left of school and then I get pushed out of the nest...and work for free for 215 hours! Ha!

I am a little freaked out and I hope it goes well. I also have sealants on saturday. I'm a little nervous. Wish me luck on that one.

I'm setting goals for myself. I really need to be more organized. Stop living by the motto "put off today what I could do tmw." Need a new motto like "get it done early and all will be right with the world." haha!

Do you have a motto? Wanna share it with me? Love to hear it.

I couldnt tell you, but I'm telling you now

Silly me,I totally forgot to share these creations. I made them with the Feb AMM kit last month.
I love spring. I can't wait for it to arrive.

Remember the uhh sketch I "drew" up for AMM? This is my take. The subject of my affection on this page is my beautiful daughter Raven.

I love to share...Or should I say enable? Nah share is a nicer word. Especially when you see what I am about to "share" with you. AMM's kit is up and it is super wicked great.
Wouldn't you agree? I mean look at all the new stuff! Maya Road, My Minds Eye, American crafts. Sooo lovely! Did you notice FULL set of stamps you get with the kit?! I cant wait to get my hands on it.

& it's the 1st of March so that means Simply Artistic has begun again. Our first cards since the break are posted. This is my take on the "concept". I used Sassafras paper crush. I totally have a paper crush on Sass.

Lastly I made a page. Just for me. Just because.

Used Sass paper crush again and vintage fabric I found at my goodwill. ♥

I am nearing the end of my 4 day weekend. I managed to clean the girl cave & mess it up again.

Go on a wonderful bike ride with my hubby to the park.

We packed sandwiches in my basket and drinks. ♥

We did more riding with Aria. I would say we rode about 8 miles total. It was so lovely and sweet. I enjoyed it so very much. Lots more pictures to share of course. How was your weekend?
