When DH Is Away..

DH has been out of town for the past few days, that’s why I’ve been scrapping a lot of pages. 🙂 I sure miss him a lot, but I’m very happy with all the pages I’ve done this week!

I did this for the My Story Matters challenge at ScrapMatters; this one was about starting school.

I even made it in the Gallery Standouts with this one! 🙂
Then I did a matching page for Easter Bunny.

I know the colors don’t exactly match, but I just went with what the pictures inspired me. 🙂

Easter Cupcakes

Now that Easter is over and I took some lovely pictures, I can finally play with Amy and Lauren’s Easter kit, Hippity Hoppity:

It’s soooooooo gorgeous!! I did 2 pages featuring my Easter cupcakes. 🙂
Here’s the page with a picture of all the cupcakes (they’re all different) I did:

and here are some closeups of my favorites:

I used the most Easter-themed elements of the kit for these pages, but there are many other spring goodies I have yet to play with, and they’re so cute! And the textures of the papers are fabulous!


I did a page for a challenge at ScrapMatters and it made me wish once again that I had Photoshop CS… I believe that if I had a program that allowed me to create text paths I would actually start loving wordart.. I sure love the one I did for this page.

I gladly used the text path that was provided for the challenge, but I still wished I could tweak the path a little bit..

Easter Weekend

Gosh, I am so tired!! I wish we had an extra day off for Easter… :-/

We had a great weekend, but I’m really tired. I baked Easter cupcakes (LOs to come) and did very few scrapping..
Friday we had a new addition to our family 🙂

Glitzy Glitter Alphas Volume 2 by Megan Turnidge

Font: Note this

I’ve been catching up on Project 365 lately so now I have weeks 1-10, 14-15 done. Hopefully I can get weeks 11-13 done soon. I joined the community at Weeds and Wildflowers because there’s a great incentive program going on there: that’s why I’ve managed to do weeks 14 & 15 on time! 🙂
I will post the LOs here once I get the missing weeks done!

New Goodies!

Yesterday night I started playing with the goodies I picked up at Weeds & Wildflowers on Sunday. I took advantage at the 2nd birthday sale they had last week and got a lot of absolutely gorgeous stuff by Gina Marie Huff, including a huge alpha collection. 🙂 I really love how this page turned out!

I also did a matching page for the LO I posted in the previous post.

Ah, I really love my camera! 🙂

Busy (and Beautiful!) Weekend!

This weekend DH and I have been pretty busy: we went to the opera last night (ah, we really must go more often!) and today we went to a museum. Lots of fun, but tiring too, and the weekend is over way too fast!

I only scrapped one page yesterday but I took many pretty pictures today. 🙂

Even though I didn’t scrap much, this weekend was memorable: I got RAKed by Kelley Mickus, April Dawn (I used her kit for this LO) and Weeds and Wildflowers!! 😀

For a Change: Red!

I was RAKed by Dani Alencar with her latest kit, Call Her Beauty, and last night I started playing with it!

So finally, after a series of pink LOs, here’s some red! 😀

Ugh, it’s Friday and it’s raining here today.. It’s time to go, but I really with I could stay home!!

Just One LO Tonight!

I slowed down a bit and only got one LO done tonight. 🙂

Actually, I got this one done in half an hour and then I didn’t really feel like scrapping anymore.. But I do love how this page turned out! 😉

On a Roll!

These past few days I’ve been on a roll and got lots of LOs done! And I’m very happy with them all! 🙂

Last night I did 2 more LOs with Lipstick Kisses at Noon, by Polka Dot Plum. I actually started scrapping these 2 pages the night before, when I did the 2 LOs featured in the previous post, but I didn’t love what I scrapped so I didn’t publish them. I didn’t like them, especially compared to the 2 pages I did with the same kit and that I absolutely loved. So last night I went and redid them completely. I’m much happier with the end result now! 😀

This is page 1:

and this is the matching page:

I’m still very much in love with this kit! 🙂 And after scrapping 4 pages with it, I’m not done with it – there’s more goodies I haven’t used yet!

Then since I was on a roll a scrapped a gorgeous picture I took on Saturday, and used Polka Dot Plum’s Her First Kiss:

Whew, that’s it for now, and hopefully my mojo will come up with something pretty tonight too! 😉
