It's been a while. :)

Well...leave it to me to get things done just under the wire. :/ I wish I had more time to craft...because I feel like I'm really forgetting how to do things. It results with me not being too happy with anything I make! It's hard because I work 70 hours a week. BOOO to work, right? is my card for the Unity kit of the month stamp challenge! I keep playing...but really I have one more kit left I can purchase. I'm missing one from 2011. 2 or 3 from 2008 that I can't get now, anyways. I'm a pretty bad Unity addict! ;)
I used the sentiment from the KOM April 2009. The snowflake is from September 2008 KOM. The tag, I made using a paper bag from starbucks... yep I treated myself to a banana nut loaf slice..hehe. It's so moist, can you blame me..? I don't bake!

Have a great weekend!

Today, is a special day. It's my little boy Alexander's 4th birthday. I'm short on words but my heart is full. Here are pictures of each of his birthdays over the years:





4TH BIRTHDAY (today!)

Can't leave out the awesome cake I made for him. My husband helped with making the icing and decorating the outside. :D Alex's favourite colour is: rainbow. :)

Here is a divine slice. We're all just waking up from our diabetic comas. ;)

AND...if you're here with friends with flair, here is the card I have to share. Made for Alexander using the Simple Stories "life's cake!" set:

We had a wonderful day here, I hope you did too! Enjoy your weekend!

A card and some photos!

This is a card I made for the Unity Challenge. The challenge was based on a fall poem. I actually like the way this card turned out! It's simple and me. I love those zing embossing powders, wow they sure pop! The stamps were from Unity's September 2008 kit of the! It's a line of 5 trees, but I stamped 3 of them individually onto pop dotted circles. My goal is to go back and use some older stamps. I have SO many unused stamps!


Here are some photos from Halloween! My 3 (4, on Friday!) year old son asked to be Luigi. Man, I thought it was going to be a challenge...but it came together SO easily. I loved it..he was adorable! People loved his costume!

My daughter went as a devil... I don't think you'd find a prettier little devil! :) On a side's SOOO hard to find an appropriate costume for a little girl! My daughter is 8 and I was embarrased looking at costumes for her!

And here are our Angry Birds pumpkins. Angry pumpkins? hehe. We had so much fun with these. They looked awesome lit up. We didn't get a chance to take a pic of them with candles in.
Have a great day!

1st Birthday

I have 5 or 6 layouts sitting on my desk that I haven't put into albums..they've kinda been sitting around waiting to get scanned since maybe May and June. EEK. I haven't really scrapped much since then...maybe a layout or two. So, I'll try and get some of these uploaded so I can put them into my albums!

This is my DD on her 1st birthday. She is 8 now. Holy smokes, where does the time go? Just a quick layout with some random pictures from the day.

Have a great week! I even have a card ready to go for friends with flair on Friday! Yay!
