Boy was my weekend busy! It started off with my free Friday! I didn't have much to do. Most of my Scrap buddies where all getting ready to go to the Prima class that I decided to pass on because I wanted to spend some time with my hubby. So i decided to go to Strictly Scrapbooking in Torrance, where they are having a 40% off due to going out of business. Yes... very sad!!! Another LSS going out of business. Anyway, I bumped into a scrapbook buddy, Nancy. It was fun. We shopped together and tried to convince each other that we didn't "need" that item! lol I ended up leaving there with tons of stuff... Prima flowers, Bling, Felt and 12x12 Chipboard Die Cut, AC Thickers, tons of Cardstock and so much more. After Strictly's, I met up with another scrapbook Buddy, Gen. We had lunch and she was nice enough to offer to pick some goodies up for me at the Prima class (Woohoo! Got some really good stuff too!!! Thanks Gen!!!) Later that evening, I spent time with my hubby. :)

Saturday, Hubby and I were suppose to go to Roscoe's Chicken and Waffles and then downtown LA and lastly spend the day with his parents. However, I forgot about my daughters Marching Band Competition (yikes!! bad MOM!!) So we rushed over there and .... :( We missed her Band by 20 mins! Bummer!!! Anyway, left and spent the rest of the day at his parents house. The best part came when I got home! I pulled an all nighter (ok... maybe not all night, but damn! 2am is an all nighter to me! LOL) in my scrap area and completed the following pages:

This LO is for the color challenge on

This LO is for a Challenge from Elsie Flannigan's 52 week Challenge book. It's challenge #17 "Scrapbook an Alphabetical Approach". I actually scraplifted Elsie's example.

This LO is another Challenge from Elsie's book. It is challenge #19 "Scrapbook an Layout Shape". I lifted this from a LO I saw on the Fancy Pants website.
I am not really happy with any of these layouts. I think I may have lost my MOJO !!! Maybe I need a few days off and then return refreshed.

So Sunday we took the 3 youngest children (and my daughters friend) t0 Knotts Berry Farm. Here are some pictures....

Needless to say, we returned home exhausted! Well that's the weekend... on to work tomorrow.

Thanks for looking! :)

So last night I went to go see Usher with my good friend Jamie!! He performed at the new Club Nokia in Dowtown LA. I had so much fun. The music was good, Usher performed well.... However, I don't know why but my lust for him before the concert has somewhat disappeared! OH well! I still like his music, just not sure I am sprung like I used to be. Here are some pictures I snapped before Security caught me! LOL

Oh I can't wait to do my layout!!! :)


Ok, here are the other layouts I did for the Shabby Chic Challenge:

This Challenge was to do a layout that starts with "I Scrap Because...."

This Challenge was to use 15 pieces of pattern paper!
I am sooo loving the Donna Salazar Flower's!!!
Thanks for Looking!!

OMG!! I had a blast at the Fiskateers event at the Queen Mary/Aquarium!!! They know how to throw an event! :) We played games, Had an awesome make-n-take with Candace, great goodie bags, I won a big stack of Heidi Grace stuff, fun time at the Aquarium and a yummy dinner with 56 other Fiskateers!!! I met so many scrap buddies for the first time, reunited with some that I hadn't seen for some time and of course hung out with the SoCalScrap Ladies! It was one big family and that was awesome! :) Here are some pictures:

New Layouts

Today was a good day! It was my "Friday Freebie" day. I packed up some scrap stuff and met up with Mindy, Dina and Jamie to crop. We had a great time! I think we need to get together more often! Thanks Mindy for hosting!!! Here are the layouts I completed:
Here is the layout I did with the pictures I posted a few days ago:

This is my last Halloween layout:

Here, I fussy cut part of the house so that my polka dot paper can tuck under the house. Then I embossed the house.

On this layout, I finally got to use the new Prima Lollipop Flowers! Now looking at it, I probably should of added more little flowers around it.

The first challenge was to make a LO with 6 photos:Challenge #2 was to make a LO with 2 altered Chipboard pieces:I used Fancy Pants Scallop Border. I painted, sanded, inked and Glimmer Mist it. The other altered chipboard item was the heart. Also a Fancy Pants chipboard piece, I painted, crackled painted (it worked this time! lol), inked and added some bling, ribbon and Primas. Challenge #3 was to do a Black and White LO with only 1 Black and White Picture:
