got a few LO's done tonight too...

Well since my Hubby is working late, I was scrapping. I did feed the kids before I sat down to scrap. I love to chat on line with my friends while scrapping. My favorite person to chat with is Kathy. She lives hundreds of miles away, but I will get to meet her in just a few days. I am soooo excited.

Here are the LO's I got done tonight while chating!

This one is based on a sketch from 52 sketches...

Fishing FUn

Here is one I just put together really fast. I love this photo of my youngest son. He is such a nut!

I am Madison

Melissa made the flowers on this page. We did a flower swap and she made these for me. Thanks Melissa!!

Happy scrapping!!


52 sketches... 52 weeks sketch #29

This sketch was a little bit of a challenge for me. I do love how it turned out, but I think I was stuck for a little while before I could figure out what to do. Hope it turned out as well as I wanted...

Birthday Boy

Happy scrapping!!

52 sketches... 52 weeks sketch #27

I loved this sketch. I will use it again.


I like to go to the ning group for 52 sketches and look through their sketches. The funny thing is that I have done several of their sketches many times with out even know it and they all turned out so different. Thanks so much for the inspiration!!

Scrapping with my niece!!

My nieces were here visiting and my oldest niece wanted to come over to scrap with me. The cool thing was, she wanted to scrap my photos because she did not have any photos to scrap. That worked for me!!

Here are the 2 LO's she did. She did a great job considering she is a card maker.

These are the LO's that I did while we were scrapping.

Happy birthday

We had a great time. We were also chatting with my friend Kathy while we were scrapping. I really love the internet!!

I'd like to thank the Blogacademy!! :O)

I would like to thank AMY for giving me this blog award!!

So the rules of this award are to post 7 other bloggers I adore and then post 7 things that no one knows about me.

And the list is(in no particular order):

Kathy - Kathy's Scrap Chat Thanks for helping me to think outside the box!! You are a great friend and I love your work. Cannot wait to meet you in person!! Only a few weeks!!

Jess - Basic Jess I love your cards. When I need to make a card, I go to your blog for inspiration!!

Roni -
Ink Stains
Thanks for the great ideas you have. I have tried several of your ideas and I love them. You have a great imagination!

Nikki Love - NLOVE w/ SCRAPPIN Thanks for all the great LO's you share. I love all the details you add!

Tracey = scrappin' trackside You do awesome work! I long to be able to layer like you do!

Scrapping out LOUD! I love to look at all the awesome LO's from the DT's!!

Shemaine - Scraptastic!
I love your work!! You are an amazing scrapper!!

Ok, so now 7 things about me that you might not know...

1. I have an identical twin sister. She has 3 biological girls and I have 3 boys. We are a lot alike and everyone knew us as "the Twins" when we were growing up.

2. I love to be outdoors. I wish I had more time for it. Seems that we are so busy lately. I really love to be at the lake. We usually go many times during the summer. I need to make time to go this weekend. I just love it!!

3. I want another baby!!! Some people think I am crazy, but I don't care. I have 3 boys (18, 16 and 15) I want to add another one to the mix!

4. I love chocolate!! ok, maybe most of you already knew that! lol!! It is my favorite thing in the world!! (but I do not like chocolate ice cream!!)

5. I have a foster son that we still get every weekend. We love him very much and I wish we could adopt him. He is in many of my LO's!!

6. I am a worry wart!! I worry about many things that I shouldn't. I try not to, but it is hard. If I cannot control it than I worry about it. (Probably why I have heartburn all the time!)

7. I love DIET COKE!!! I really do!! I drink it all day long. I also love coffee, but only drink it in the morning or at night during the summer. It is too hot her. But will drink coffee all day during the winter.

SO... Thanks again for the blog award. Now pass it on!!!
