So, I know I said this last year...

but WOW it's really been that long since I've posted??? Almost a year this time??? I really gotta get better at this!

I was gonna give you all an update, but since I haven't posted for almost a year, I doubt anyone is following this anymore. LOL

So real quick:
K - started and finished 1st grade, had her 7th birthday, was the star of a skit in her class musical, is getting screened for the gifted program at school, has a "boyfriend" (sort of, but not really), loves American history, and is currently t her Dad's for the summer.

Me - still working at Tiny Treasures; but I'm in the 2 year old room now, had my 36th birthday (and there was much rejoicing yea), had my Neon die on me in March, got a new car! a purple PT Cruiser, haven't stamped in ages, just this week got back into scrapbooking (more on that in a few), no boyfriends for me yet, and am missing my daughter while she's at her Dad's

Us - are still healthy, still live in Mohnton and love it, we lived through the worst winter storm PA's had in a long time, and just recently got a new kitten :)

Ok whew now that all that's taken care of, here's the reason I came back to my blog after all this time. I've been scrapbooking again!!! I have off from work this week,so I decided it was about time I got working on the Disney album. Heck at this rate K will be turning 9 and we will have gone back before I finish it.

On the Prowl

The orange medallion was hand cut and "aged" by me. I needed something else for the page and I saw the detail work in the stones of the fountain and went from there. There's also a hidden Mickey somewhere in there too. Can you find him?

Hakuna Matata

What a wonderful phrase, Hakuna Matata, ain't no passing craze. It means no worries for the rest of your days, it's our problem free philosophy, Hakuna Matata.

This layout is 100% scraplifted from the most incredible scrapper Susan Stringfellow I love just about every layout she does and when I saw this one I just knew I had to recreate it for my album. I just happen to have almost everything she used on hers. I did have to hand cut the green leaf stems, but other than that ... Thanks Susan!

Again, can you find the Mickey? There's one on every Disney page.

Flamingo Island

This is another layout that started out as a scraplift from one of Susan's pages Cute Flamingo's I started it about a year ago, but never finished it. So since I was on a roll I decided to finish it.

Here's a close up of the flower. I made that using this tutorial for pretty roses. I used Tim Holtz Altered Flowers Sizzix die for the flower.

Baby Giraffe

I really love how this page turned out. I tea dyed the one flower and then I colored it with my SU markers until I got it the way I wanted.

Dino Rama

This is my favorite page of the bunch! Another scraplift, but this time I didn't use the same papers and embellishments. I ran the chipboard through my Cuttlebug to give it that bumpy texture. Then I colored it with SU craft inks. The little journaling tag was made using a clipart I found online and colored with my Copics. IT was then crumpled and tea dyed.


Welcome to my new an improved blog. I hope you can find something useful, insightful, humorous or just plain silly here. Enjoy!
