I must apologize for not updating more frequently. No excuses, just nothing exciting to say perhaps but i have a few fave projects from the past week or so that i will share. I have a terrible head cold (thanks to my family who had it first and felt they had to share with me) and its still too much like winter here with snow and cold weather. I must say i have had enough. Wish i could sneak into my mom's suitcase and go to Hawaii with her, that would be fabulous, but alas, thats not going to happen so i will plug away with life here.
BEST news of the day, the Love2Scrap forum is up and running again, yeahhh, it was missed and i hope to see everyone stop in and check it out and say hi. what a relief, too bad those hackers don't have anything better to do with their time than cause trouble.
I am happy to say i am onto round 5 in the Scrapazing race, competition is getting tougher and it will be a fight to the finish i am sure. "seriously Mo" is from round 4 challenge to use lots of ppaper and at least 4 manufacturers which i did and had fun. I love my silly cat.
I've had fun working with the ribbon kit for my guest DT spot at SavvyNSassy and "Scenic Pit Stop" is one of the layouts i have done so far.
"Make Music" was for a challenge on Timeless Inspirations to go with the DCWV 07 calendar challenge to create your own embellishments. I (with a lil help from Lindsey) cut out swirls and circles from the Fontwerks pp to make the border and title "music".
And who could resist that face, those adorable curls, and a Norwegian CHristmas greeting, i had to scrap the picture card using chatterbox and jumbo ric rac, handmade felt poinsettia, and various other goodies. God Jul to you too Gudmund.
i suppose thats enough for today but stay tuned, i've got lots of ideas and goodies in the making. Oh and I got the best prize package from my crop winnings from Sarah's Shabby Shoppe in the mail yesterday and wowzers, i am drooling over all the cool goodies. Its good to visit there again and connect with friends and the new owner, Sarah, Seems to be doing a great job.

What a nice surprise last week when my hubby brought me home a dozen roses, such a treat, so pretty and the splash of color in the midst of what is still serious winter weather was awesome. Of course i had to take a picture of them and they have since been "hung up to dry" LOL so i can enjoy them for a long long time. Thanks dear, love ya.
Its been a hectic week, back to work and an extra day today, just getting routine down again in time to get geared up for all the extra stuff going on with the kids, badminton starts monday, 4-H pancake supper, pizza party for hockey, etc etc, time just flies and the days are packed.
I am sad to say my term at Scrapbookers clubhouse as a dt member is over and it was my pleasure, great bunch of gals there to work with. It was also sad when Angelique decided to close the mboard down at Scrapbook Swede last week, glad the shop is still open though, so my dt term there has ended a bit early. Made it to round 3 in the cropazing race at Timeless so the competition is getting tough and i'm getting nervous but i have enjoyed the challenges. I am looking forward to cropping online at Sarah's Shabby shoppe this weekend and hope to get creative with the challenges and fun stuff going on there. Check it out!!
Baby Love was so much fun and i just love the portrait of Lindsey as a baby, and the Festive Nails was fun too when Lindsey and I did our nails up fancy over the Christmas Holidays, i still can't believe i HAVE nails, yep, they are still doing well, i think i've truly kicked the habit. I had fun doing some sweet valentines day projects for my family, still hoping for a few nice pictures for my february calendar page but so far nada. Hugs and stay warm
