Speed Scrap Today

There’s a speed scrap at 2PM EST today at ScrapMatters and I might even be there! I stayed home today too since it’s the last full day my mom is here – she’s leaving tomorrow. 🙁
Hope to see you there!
And.. did I mention there’s a great partecipation prize by Britt-ish Designs?? 😉

Vote for Me! :)

I’m playing in the CT contest at ScrapOrchard just for the fun of it, and after every week the community votes for their favorite page (yes, I do realize the grammar is way off in this sentence, but I’m not going back to correct it! LOL). The top 3 pages will be turned into QPs, and I realize that mine certainly isn’t very suited for that, but still.. if you want, do vote for me here! 😀

Voting is open until Saturday so don’t wait, do it now! 🙂

Mystery Bags

Starting today, and available until the end of the month, there are 6 new grab bags at ScrapMatters and they are huge! For each grab bag, 3 or 4 designers teamed up and the bags are an incredible deal! Go check them out!

I love it because every bag has something to scrap about guys and something for girls, and much more! They’re so versatile you’ll be using them for all kinds of pages.
I used the grab bag #2 to create the page with the text messages my Dad is sending us, to accompany the page I did the other day. 😉

Well, I’m staying home from work today to stay with my mom, but this means I might also have some daily computer time.. We’ll see! 😉

Summery Page

I was RAKed by Krista (Sahlin Studio) with her gorgeous Life’s a Beach on Monday and I made a page right away, but couldn’t post it until now because it’s accompanying the I’ll Pencil You in challenge at ScrapMatters.
It’s one of the hybrid challenges and it consists of making one page a month so that by December we’ll have the 2010 calendar ready. 😉
Since I’ll have my calendar printed for me and won’t be assembling it by myself, this is actually hardly a hybrid project for me.. 🙂

I love this kit so much!! 🙂
I love the summery feel of this page. Actually, it’s hard to believe this picture was taken only 3 days ago, while today is such a gray and rainy day! 🙁

Something New

I’ve been scrapping for well over a year now, and I’ve never done a page without pictures (excluding the little hybrid albums, but those don’t count).. All this changed yesterday, thanks to the scraplift challenge at The DigiChick. The gallery of the scrapper we had to lift had many pages that didn’t have any picture, so I decided to try this out myself:

Well, I liked this so much, that I did another page! 😀 I did this page for the CT contest at ScrapOrchard, for which we had to use a beach kit. Since I don’t have any beach pictures, I didn’t have much choice.. 😉 So instead of using the beach kit for a non-beach LO, I did a beach page with no pictures. 🙂

Those little elements were so cute, and when I dragged them onto my page I got the idea of incorporating them in the journaling – I love how it turned out! 🙂

Whooops, I just realized I didn’t date my beach page!! 🙂 Will go back and add that in. 😉

A Lift

It’s only been a few days since I joined the CT team at ScrapMatters, but I’m loving it already! No big surprise… 😉

I did a page to accompany the new Grand Theft LO challenge, in which the target to lift is the uber-talented melanie3boys.
I chose one of my favorite LOs of hers, Christmas Morning Catastrophe and did this page:

The pictures were taken by my mom on Monday evening. My mom is no photographer and the pictures aren’t top quality, but I figured it would be better and faster to have her take a few shots while we were grillin’ rather than use the tripod. 😉

Daily Download!

Sorry for posting this a couple of days late, but there’s a new Daily Download at ScrapMatters and the kit is fantastic, so even if you missed these first couple of days you can still end up with a great kit!!
You just have to check in every day and download a portion of the kit, and you’ll end up with a wonderful kit for those 4th of July pages!

Just click on the ad to go to the Daily Download forum, and remember to go back every day! 🙂

Speed Scrap Today!

There’s a Speed Scrap today at ScrapMatters:

I’ll be at work so I’ll miss it :(, but I recommend going if you can!! It’s hosted by Britt and it’s bound to be super fun!! 😉

BBQ Night

Yesterday was a beautiful sunny but cool day (my favorite kind of day!), so we decided to grill. It was great, and my mom really enjoyed it too. 😉

And tonight we’re trying a new, fancy restaurant. 🙂

Almost Forgot!

I forgot to post my latest Project 365 page this morning, so here it is:

Paper from Lazy Days, Hodge Podge 11 by Gina Marie Huff
Photo stamps from Project 365 #2 by Sugarplum Paperie
Messy Stamped Alpha by wm [squared] designs
Glitzy Wordlettes 2 by Britt-ish Designs
Fonts: Note this, Pea Olson

Since my mom has arrived, I’ve been doing a photo of her every day.. Let’s see if I keep this up for her whole stay or if I get some pictures I cannot keep out of my P365. 😉
