~Scrap for a Cure ~

So as you know I was asked to be the dec Guest Dt over at Scrap For A Cure...Let me tell you the kit is wonderful, the ladies are super awesome, and we should all scrap for a cure right? So here are the things I made using only their kit...

Out of all this stuff I made I still had paper, glitter, letters, embellies left over! I just wanted to keep making and making and making!

This was a tough one for me because Im so use to getting whatever I want and putting them on my layout. I was super critical of everything I did...I look at it all and go man you need to do better! LOL! The girls loved it tho and am so happy about that! I really had a wonderful time with this kit. Its so beautiful. You should go check their kits out.

Hope you all have a safe weekend! Get that shopping done. :)

To kids from 1-92....

My great grandmother lived to be 100. She drank a Pepsi everyday of her life from the age of 50 till the day she died...She was a great lady. I wish I seen the things she seen. I wish I would've been into scrapbooking when she was alive and asked her some questions about the wonderful times she lived in. I wish I could live in every era every decade. I love history. I love to look at old photos and imagine I was there. What a nerd right? LOl!

Anyway holidays make you miss family that arent here anymore or maybe have moved far away. That's how Ive been feeling.

I did manage to get some scrappin done...And I also can post the stuff I made for Scrap For A Cure...I think I'm gonna post that one tmw tho. So for now another one of my sister...

I love her pics! She inspires me so.

I hope you all are having a wonderful day!

All that glitters is not gold...

So true. I love glitter... You remember The Secret of Nimh? I feel like the crow that loves the baubles and shiny things lol! I truly love little things that sparkle and are vintage. Old vintage buttons and rhinestones make my heart skip a beat...Lace remnants make me dizzy and don't get me started on vintage paper ledgers, newspapers, and music sheets. Give me vintage or give me death! OK not really but you get that I really love the kitchy/Kitsch stuff. So I have a few things to share...I'm quit stingy when it comes to places or things I love...I don't like to share my resources...But someone shared them with me so I figure its time to pay it forward...

2 of my fav places to oggle and awe...

Paper Vallise


I would love to get my hands on everything at those 2 places.

Now for the title challenged...Which is me. I just found this on a blog...And let me tell you it is awesome when you just cant find a title for that page.


So don't say I never shared anything with you! I must really luv you all to divulge my secrets! *wink*

I have some scrappage to share...

My sister playing dress up again! LOL! I did this for a challenge over at Use the homepage as inspiration...

My son Aeden...Used the feist song for my title.

Again My SON yes that's right my son...he is wearing Aria's unicorn costume, his brothers boxers, a Darth Vader mask, has a pink sparkly wand and a green drum thingy! I had to take a pic...its to dang funny! I think this page is my fav.(You have to click this one and make it bigger to really see the details and how freakin funny he looks!)

Oh and I got a fav on All about eve! Forgot to tell ya'll that! :) Big hug to all my bloggin friends!

A little late

But I thought it was cute!

'Twas the night of Thanksgiving, But I just couldn't sleep
I tried counting backwards, I tried counting sheep.
The leftovers beckoned - The dark meat and white
But I fought the temptation with all of my might.

I Tossing and turning with anticipation
The thought of a snack became infatuation.
So, I raced to the kitchen, flung open the door
And gazed at the fridge, full of goodies galore.

I gobbled up turkey and buttered potatoes,
Pickles and carrots, beans and tomatoes.
I felt myself swelling so plump and so round,
'Til all of a sudden, I rose off the ground.

I crashed through the ceiling, floating into the sky
With a mouthful of pudding and a handful of pie.
But, I managed to yell as I soared past the trees....
Happy eating to all - Pass the cranberries, please.

May your stuffing be tasty, may your turkey be plump.
May your potatoes 'n gravy have nary a lump.
May your yams be delicious, may your pies take the prize,
May your Thanksgiving dinner stay off of your thighs.

May your Thanksgiving be Blessed!

Hope you all had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday!

Getting ready?

For thanksgiving? Do you cook for people at your house or go somewhere? I'am going to my mom's this year...My cousin and I were talking about Christmas past and how wonderful they use to be. Her family stopped coming by to my families and now its just my mom, my sister, my grandma, and my lil family. It kinda makes me sad. I love my cousins so much. They are more like my sisters then my cousins. Anyway enough of my whimpering lol!

Thought this was a cute lil thanksgiving quiz thing....

You Are Mashed Potatoes

Ordinary, comforting, and more than a little predictable
You're the glue that holds everyone together.

Oh yeah before I forget...I made it to the catwalk on sistv! Woot!!! Super excited about that! Also the next challenge for scrapmojo is up! Gotta check it out is super easy and so fitting for Thanksgiving. The girls did such a awesomely wonderful job on it!
