Sketchy Thursdays time!

Yay, I picked up my computer yesterday afternoon and all is well.  It just needed a new power thingamabob.  I think the computer guy is my new hero though.  So here is today's sketch...check it out here:!  Also...I sent my hubby into the camera store (I refuse to step foot inside because steam always comes out of my ears when I'm there) to rent me a flash unit for my slr to have for Christmas.  He comes out with a point and shoot camera instead.  I was tickled because I've been wanting a teeny purse sized camera to have for project 365.  These are the first pictures I took and have had developed and man am I bummed!  They're pretty yucky looking, it's a nikon coolpix.  Anyone have a little purse sized camera they love?

Hey there!

Just wanted to check in and say a quick hi...haivng serious computer issues... as in blew up an outlet (tried really hard to light the couch on fire) which made my computer go dead.  Hubby took it in today and we're crossing our fingers that it's fixable.  In the meantime I'm working on getting some scrapping done (super hard without my computer with all my pictures!!!), I'm being forced to go "old school" and I'm not liking it one bit.  I AM looking forward to starting project 365 on friday though and wanted to throw a link out there for anyone else thinking of doing it.  I LOVE this site so much, I'm thrilled to pieces that I found it just when I'm getting ready to start.  If you join please add me as a friend!

My 100th page!!

Yay, I just started scrapping again in June after a four year break and I was curious to see how many I'd end up with by the end of the year...didn't think I'd make it to 100 though....and I still have a few more to go before the year is up!  My little guy (the extremely mismatched one) and his cousin loving his little car on vacation this summer.  Using all My Minds Eye :)

Sketchy Thursday

This is something totally different for me...but it's fun to try new things right?  I went for a very neutral one color look.  I had some fun stamping out the journaling too.  This is for this weeks sketch at Sketchy Thursdays.  And the prize this week is from the wonder Scrapbook Kit Club...their Dec kit which is amazing!!!  With Christmas fast approaching it's a quick and easy sketch this week so be sure to play along!

ps....everything on this page is from the Jan Scrapbook Kit Club enjoy the tiny sneak peek!

'Tis the Season....for Christmas pictures!

So....nice and last minute like a week or so ago we took Chrismtas pictures.  This is much harder than you think when you're a photographer...when you don't plan well and do them spontaneously you have to rely on the self timer...and daughter...and hubby if you want to be in any of them yourself.  So here's a few from our little whirlwind of a session (now the real trick will be if I can actually get them turned into cards, ordered AND mailed far I've designed the card.

and a few more out takes (see my "Christmas Hams" lo below for a few more out takes)...this is what happens when mom turns around to answer the phone and your 10 year old takes over the camera!  She took the one of me and hubby too :)

Christmas hams...

Yep, that's what they are...this is what you get when you let them "pose" themselves lol!!  This is for this months sketch at Scrapbook Express using papers & die cuts from My Minds Eye!  Ooooh and do you see what I did?  I got a Cricut on black friday....been drooling over them forever....and finally got one!!!  But I've been either sick or busy...and it's been driving me crazy to have it sitting there taunting me.  So I finally had time last night to download SCAL and I only just dipped my big toe in to get a feel for how it all works but hey -how do you like that "hams" and scallop there eh?  I'm now at the point where I'm pretty much wanting to cut out everything and am holding myself back lol.  I think I'm going to be very good friends with my little Cricut!

Scrapbook Kit Club Dec kit club debut!

I have to say if you've been thinking of trying out a kit do not hesitate to get this one!!  It's huge, it's like no matter what I make my box does not get emptier...the kit that keeps on kit-ing lol!  I've done three pages with another in the works plus a far!  My sketchy thursdays lo from last week was made with the kit and here are two more...
I had lots of fun with the paint, I haven't gotten paint out in forever and I love the way it looks on the edges!

oh...and ps I totally cheated here and used leftover rhinestones from the Nov kit.  This month does have red ones included but I used them all up!!
