Low Key - New Years Eve.....

So every year is pretty low key around here, we are just not the party type people it getting old I guess. But, tonight is going to be exceptionally low key, by 6 pm I was in my PJ's lying on the couch in a blanket. I am exhausted....not sure from what. I had to work today after 7 days off, so that might be it. I will be blog surfin' tonight, so check out my list as I am going to add some sites I have been admiring lately but have not had time to post. DH has to work early tomorrow morning, so we will probably not be up till midnight! So just wanted to wish everyone a Happy New Year and Best Wishes for 2009! Looking forward to a fresh new start tomorrow ! Leave me a comment and tell me what you are all up to this evening. J

Long time no see....

Well I have been fighting a bad cold, have been working in Atlanta last week so I have not been around much and trying to get stuff done for Xmas in the meantime. But, I managed to squeak this out on the weekend, I made the flowers from fun foam after not being about to find anything already made to add to the LO. I must mention this pic was taken by Gerri Weatherbee, it is a daughter of a friend of mine and Gerri seems to have the knack taking pictures of her kids!

Hmm what else is new........well check out this blog called Mix it UP, it is a new challenge blog with some great talented ladies on the DT, can't wait to see what they will do.

The new Canadian Scrapbooker came out a few weeks back, check it out, I have 4 items in it this time, Yippe!

Well that is it for today...catch you later.

Well for those that know me personally, follow my blog/posting or plain just didn't know this, I am a cat lover twice over. OK I am a crazy cat lady....But, once again heartbreak has hit our house. Peanut has been sick for the last 8 weeks and I have been doubting over her trying to get her well. About 4 weeks ago she was diagnosed with FIP a fatal disease and I have been keeping her happy, well looked after, while her sickness took over. This week we had to put her down, she was only 1 1/2 years old and we had her for only 6 months....she was the sweetest thing on was hard not to get attached to her...I am so sad over it. Snickers now has become infected as well, but it is in a latent form, Tilly seems ok for now. Having pets is so catch 22, they are so joyful to have with all their unconditional love that they give you, but it is so hard when they pass away....

I was tagged a few days back by Carla and have not had a chance to say thanks! and to participate in her challenge. So here it goes, I would like to tag the following people!

7 random/weird things about me...

1. I don't like to get out of bed on the left side, it feels weird, so I always try to exit on the right side.

2. My favourite sandwich is grilled cheese, YUM.

3. I have never been up the CN tower in Toronto.

4. My favourite colour is orange.

5. I rarely watch a movie as I can not sit still and concentrate that long. If I do, I like to watch "bubble gum" movies.

6. I have worn glasses since I was 12 years old and never think I will have laser surgery as they are part of my personality.

7. My hair is not dyed, streaked and is "o" natural in colour!

Now onto letting other people play the are the lucky people I have tagged.

Kat - just because she needs to update her blog!

Tara - love all her cards they are so cute.

Connie - Cause I missing being able to see her in person I like to visit her blog to see what she is up to.

Jacqueline - I wish she would start back up the carnival.

Holly - cause she is super dupper fantastic!

Lori - she's my scrapbooking hero!

Lulu - I like her style and her kids are so cute!

Anyways hope everyone is having a good weekend..J

Just Cre8 - Week #2 and Special shout out!

Here is my creation for week #2 of Just Cre8 Idol contest. It was fun to do, challange was to use a rebus in the LO. Rebus=a combination of words, symbols, pics etc to make up a title, story, sentance. Not sure where this one was going to go for me, but eventually it got there I think. Thanks Sue for the challange!! Lots of gre8 LO's this week go and check them out.

My shout out goes to Carla, I have never met her in person, she is one talented scrapper...check out her on my blog roll....turns out she is also one super sweat person as well..thanks for the kindness....hugs!

Smacked down............and sidelined

Well that's what I feel right now. Do you ever just feel so out of whack and not with the game that you just want to sleep , but can't? Stress if a bad thing. No matter what is causing it or the many things that can cause it, its just bad. I have a huge tolerance for stressful things but it just seems to be a bit too much in the last few days. Stress has also taken my mojo away from me as well. Probably just when I need the relaxation the most, I can't seem to scrap. So stay tuned..stick around and hopefully soon everything will calm down, work out for the best and I will be more productive posting again.

I can't believe it has been....

Almost 10 days since I posted last. I apologize to you all who keep coming and don't find something new. Life is a wee bit stressful right now and a lot of things are keeping me from posting and creating. Tomorrow I will post a few items when I get some good light to take some pics.

Last weekend I went to the Creative show twice and hung out with my favourite people at Scrapbook and Cards Today booth. Kerry, Catherine, Michelle, Tina and all those that stopped by to say hello it was great to see you. I was off to the Henry's camera show on Saturday and went to a few seminars.....and bought the lens that I have been dying to get...a 100 mm, 2.4 macro lens...yippie...this weekend I will be playing! I also went with Tina to the Style at Home show which was good as well, didn't buy much, which is probably a good thing.

For now I will leave you with this....I entered myself into a 5 week contest at Justcre8, and this was my first submission for week 1. Challenge was to use an advertising slogan in the the LO. Of course this is what I did! There were SOOOOOOO many great LO's entered this week, it was a fun time and I loved what everyone did. Can't wait for the next challenge to be posted. GO over to the site and check all the wonderful LO's in the gallery.

Why do all the good shows have to be on the same weekend! Looking forward to next weekend and hopefully the work week will fly by!

I've got a secret!

I feel like running around and telling everyone, but all I can do is tell you "I've got a secret.....and I can't share....I am working on something right now the I am proud of and wish I could share it.....someday I will get to... but until then I've got a secret!"
Anyways here are a few pics from this weekend, I am behind on taking pics of my scrapbooking, seams like by the time I get to do it there is no light left outside to take the pictures.

My family was here and we went out to the pumpkin patch, ate and chatted the weekend away.

Hi All!

Well it has been a busy few weeks, getting the house ready for guests next weekend, recovering a little bit from not feeling to hot, a little scappin' and a little photography. This is for a Pic @ Pac challenge, the topic was It's not easy being GREEN.....since it was hard to get outside this weekend in the rain to take the shots I wanted, I decided to bring a little green inside with me and took a few shots, if you want to see them go to

Stay tuned this week I have a bunch of LO's to share but still have to take photos of them. Hope everyone has a great week.

OK Blog Readers !!! I have been MIA ....

Sorry for those that keep coming back and finding nothing new...I have been a bit MIA, work has been keeping me real busy, I was off to Quebec City for a conference last weekend, great meetings, great city. So, all I have for you this week is a new photo site....if I ever can get the darn thing linked to my blog. It will be labeled "just pics". A few people I met in Quebec, prompted me thinking I don't get to share a lot in my scrapbook pages, but I take a lot of pictures... thus a new spot to keep all those pics to share with everyone. So go check it out...

On the music front check this out, I am in love with this song and have added it to my blog... He is Norwegian and won a recent talent contest album is coming out soon.

Hopefully in the next few weeks I will get back into the studio, the mojo is itch'n to get out. For now me and my camera are off on an adventure.

Men are from Mars, Woman are from Venus

Well this LO definitely put me on a different planet than my husband. He absolutely doesn't like it and I absolutely LOVE it! The moon pictures inspired this LO. I have had this piece of paper for a long time and didn't want to use it or didn't have something to use it with. It was fun to make and came together quickly. Tell me what you think of it? The little fly and memo block is a pull out with the story of taking the pictures of the moon.

Here are a few new things...

Here are a few from the last week or so. New Daisy Bucket, Doodle Bug, Bazzil edges, Thickers, Prima, KaiserCraft flowers, Imaginisce buttons, MM ribbon...

Some Pink Paisley, Doodle Bug, Skribblz Art and bits and bobs from my collection.

Another one with a Skribblz Art vinyl adhesive, KaiserCraft paper, Bazzil edges, Imaginisce snowflakes. A rare double pager for me.

A simple money card to use up some scraps or Doddle Bug paper and bling, Heidi Grace and Kelly Panacci stamps.


Last night I was out taking photo's of the sunset at the marina where we dock our boat. Nothing was really working for me, until I turned around and saw the moon. Never thought that you would be able to see the details on the moon so well until I took these pictures....Enjoy.

Ok, so the wait was not so long!

Here is the "NEW" (insert drum roll here) Kelly Panacci - His and Her line!!! Yeah. This is my first page with it and I love the colours in this paper, as well, they are DOUBLE SIDED!! Problem is both sides are BEAUTIFUL! so when you buy it, buy two of everything I promise you won't be sorry! So cute and fun to play with. I also used the green arrows from Artsy line, felt alphas and a few KP rub ons. Just so you know this is "NOT" a lo about my DH and me having an marital issue, rather one about how supportive he was on a recent trip when we managed to put our boat up onto the ROCKS.

This is what I have been upto...

Just a few I have made in the last few weeks and submitted to a call. I had fun making them and playing with some new pencil crayons! I have been so busy at work, so it has been a bit slow on the scrappin' front. But this weekend is "mosty" mine and I have played a little bit with Kelly Panacci new line called "His and Hers" for another posting shortly....

Bella Stamps and a spinner card (scrap lift from Jak Heath)

Kelly Panacci - Paper and Stamps (I know I already showed you this, but now it has a close up)

Fish Card - Using my Cuttlebug and Kodomo Inc Stamp. Fish are watercoloured, glossy accented and paper curled for a 3-D effect.
Xmas Card - Kelly Panacci snowflake stamp and greeting. Santa Sunshine Design. Paper Daisy Bucket and Doodle bug.

I just got new PAPER...!

How can paper make one person so happy...! I sit and sit playing with it, looking at it's colours, pattern and texture, feeling it..CRAZY....I love paper....I got this week the whole 3 new lines (Perfect Harmony, In the Meadow and Playful Pedals) of Daisy Bucket and a whole whacks of KaiserCraft paper....I love, love, love I have to cut them and there is the rub....sometimes it is so hard for me to cut into them...crazy eh? I know that some of you understand this, but most probably not....anyways off to play with the new stuff I have to get rid of some of it before my new Kelly Panacci comes hopefully next week! It is called His and Hers and it has double sided papers in the collection....It never ends does it.....Bye for now...J

Here are a few from Friday.

Didn't do as much as I planned on Friday. Actually went out for dinner instead of scrappin. Hope
you enjoy. Let me know what you think. I have a few more that I will upload in a couple of days, have to get some good light to take pictures.

This LO is made with Kelly Panacci products. Flowers were stamped with various KP stamps and then layered together with KP chipboard and KP Essentials.

Just some left over paper and tidbits. Playing with my new Spellbinders.

This card was made with Kelly Panacci and the Cuttlebug.

Another card made with the Swiss Dot Cuttle Bug and a couple of Bella Stamps. These stamps are so cute.
