Sorry :(

I know I've been neglecting my blog lately. I've just been so busy with life that I haven't had any time to CREATE! My boys start school this week and next, so hopefully that will give me the time (and the photos) to scrap soon!

Stay tuned~ more to come (hopefully) =)

I know it's been a while since I've posted, but I've got some new creations to share! I hope you like them =)

This card I made by stamping the image in versamark and rubbing chalks over it. I just love the soft effect it gives.

I decided to break out one of my neglected stamp sets!

I took this photo a while ago and thought it would make a great card.

This page makes me giggle because that stamped little boy image looks so much like AJ!

here's some of my pages from the Mommysavers crop. Thanks again Wendy- it was great!

This page ws fun! I made the guitar with my Slice. It took way too long, but I think it came out cute.

I had this chain laying around and thought it would be perfect for this page.

My MS girls know how I love my raffia! LOL!

An 8x8 page for my book of me. The bow is the strap from my dress and the embellishment at the bottom is from the favors.

AJ's preK graduation. I used his diploma and tassel from his cap.

WOO HOO!!! I DID scrap today! Momma's got her groove back and it feels so good!

So when I first saw this card here: http://craftiblog.wordpress.com/2009/05/05/2009-05-05-tri-shutter-card-tutorial-full-card-front/ I was very intimidated because it looked really complicated, but it turned out to be really easy and really fun!

Thanks for the great tutorial Bonnie!

I challenge you all to give it a shot- I promise you won't be disappointed!

here's a better view of the front

How could I post my creations without photos of my cakes! Here's some from birthdays past!

The Thomas was a wind up toy that actually went around the track!

We love pirates around here- ARGH!!!

It's hard to see but the dirt track is in the shape of a 5

here's a better pic of the track

I wonder what the next theme will be? Carmine's birthday is next, so it'll probably be Shrek (his favorite movie ever!)

Rain, rain GO AWAY!!!!

Once again, the weather forecast calls for rain! That makes 20 of the last 24 days, so if it continues, (and I make it through without extreme depression taking over) this will be my next creation!

One question though- do I really need to take 2 of everything cause I could definitely do without a myriad of creepy crawlies- of which there are too many to name!

Other random things I've created

Diaper cake for my best friend's baby shower

Shadow box for twin princesses

Shadow box for baby Rose

Christmas Angel for Susie :)

Some of my favorite pages

One of my all time favorites- my boys' first haircuts- complete with the locks of hair!

Some oldies but goodies from past crops and challenges.

these were given to a special friend :)

Another card from the crop using more of my favorite gals- this one is cruisabella. Don't you just love her little red convertible and matching scarf? (cause a girl's gotta coordinate!) LOL!

Here's another card from the Mommysavers crop. I used an image from one of my favorite stamp companies- stampingbella.com, embossed paper from my cuttlebug and the flowers and tags were made using my new favorite toy that DH and the kids got me for Mom's Day- the SLICE! Love it!

Here's the first of many creations to come!

We're doing a card crop on Mommysavers.com, where I'm a moderator in the scrapbooking forum. This challenge was a sketch and this is what I came up with... I've been in a bit of a creative funk lately, so I hope to have some more exciting creations (I think this one is a bit boring) to come!
Welcome to my blog!- I'm so excited to say that because it's taken me a while to come up with a page that I was happy enough with to finally go public with! LOL! I hope you all like it!
