New Crate Paper...

It's wonderful stuff! Crate Paper has a few new lines that are to die for! I got my hands on Emma's Shop and Toy box and created a few layouts. The pink one was inspired by a sketch from Creative Scappers.

Update on the chandilier.....found white shades (I'm suprised) they look so pretty! Will take a photo soon.

So pretty!

So my wonderful dad came over to my house and did some electrical work for us, and he put up Olivia's new chandilier in her room. I dry brushed it with pink paint and hung beads from it, so pretty, but I think the shades are a bit to yellow so I'm going to see about replacements tomorrow, if not I will re-cover these shades.

Busy weekend, and things are winding down, such a relief. Here it is Sunday night and I have yet to start my final assignment that is worth 40% off my mark. Hopefully I can whip it up in an hour (yea right) and be in bed before midnight.

Lots of things finishing for us, night school, hockey and can-skate and then so many things starting again....night school for me, this time it's pottery! So excited about that one! I am taking that class with my beautiful friend Sheryl. Olivia starts swimming and Josh in ball hockey. Just enough busy for this house.

Oh have to share this fab place with you! For those who use SCAL (are you paying attention April? LOL) It's called Under a Cherry Tree, really fun!

A layout to match the new blog wear...

It's a bit different for me, it's growing on me, I think....I look at it and say
"I love it!" Then I turn around and say "That looks dumb!" LOL Whatever.
It was fun to stick all those fun things on it.

Free blog wear! Gotta love it! I found it here, very fun stuff in there.
Will have to do until I have Kristine Davidson do my make over for me.

Going to be painting a chandalier this weekend! Yummy fun to share soon!

Yea it's the weekend!

My weekend started last night, took today off to be with the kids on the last day of March break. Today we went to Fenwood Farms to buy some organic meat, the kids got to see the emus and two of their eggs. Tomorrow is gymnastics and skating for Olivia, Josh won't be going to hockey practice because he has started a cough...don't want to push him and his cough is usually activity induced. In the afternoon we are going to Niagara Falls, need to go to the bank (yes it's far for us...LOL )and then we are going site seeing and dinner...yea!

The layout is one I created a few weeks ago for the tag layout we do a Scrap-tures, it's really fun. We have a starting layout and it is emailed to the first girl on the list, she uses it as inspiration to do a layout and then it is emailed to the next girl on the list. Teresa organizes it all and does a great job at it. At the end they are all posted on the Scrap-tures blog.

Long time no see...

Above and below...Cosmo Cricket Circa

Fancy Pants from last summer I think...

More Cosmo Cricket circa, the next two...was this months kit at Scrap-tures.

This is a exclusive sketch for Scrap-tures from Kristine Davidson at Creative Scrappers.

I'm not finished my homework yet. Can I tell my instructor my dog ate it? That would be a funny site as my homework is to paint three identical images using different colour schemes in the colour wheel...poor dog would have very colourful deposits....LOL

Been playing with lots of paper this week though....last weekend I was in Barrie with the girls from Scraptures and we had lots of fun together.

This week Josh and his team mates made it into the semi-finals so we will have some really fun hockey games coming up.

This week is March break! Yea! No lunches to pack!
I've got to get my homework done.....

It's finally Friday!

Yippeee!! It's Friday! Finally! I'm packin my bags tonight and heading out of town to do some serious scrappin with a bunch of really fun gals. Good food and good company all around for me this weekend. It's a 2 hour drive to Barrie, it's close enough and far enough at the same time.

Here is the finally Friday sketch at Scrap-tures today. It's a sketch from Creative Scrappers, love their work over there. Check them out.
