Oh thank heaven for Scrappin Sunday

This first LO is for the Sketchabilities blog. If you're looking for different sketches try them out for sure!

We had a rough year last year, in 5th Grade. Wil struggled with the school work, his teacher was piss poor to say the least, and well...let's just say it left a lot to be desired. Something that we enjoyed however was the Walk Through California's Presentation of the American Revolution. Wil drew the part of Patrick Henry and we had a great time rehersing lines, putting a costume together, and going over dramatic affect.

This next one is for the Scrapstars Summertime Challenge, While I thought hmm I could just use my Summer turns me upside down LO...I figured no no that would be cheating lol So without Further Ado...The LO

Will I get another LO done today?! IDK but I'm off to try!

Scrapping the Music-Magic by the Cars

Whoa...a blast from the past!! And what do you know...I'm on time! lol Ive done their last couple challenges just didn't get around to posting them until it was much too late, but yanno they inspired and that's what I keep comin back for!

I chose the first line of the song " turns me upside down" for this silly picture of my Nephew Jack. I absolutely adore this little man to death! I don't get to see him as often as I'd like since his Momma lives several hours away and despite our constant "We are going to make time" promises life just has a way of getting in the way of our making time.

When Jack sees the camera come out he automatically goes into silly mode begging me to take more and more and more, who am I to deny the kid a little happiness? lol So be prepared to see more pictures of my little clown in this same outfit.....if I find the time to scrap them!

Anyways, happy friday to you all and I hope you're planning a fun weekend for yourselves. I have Mom and Mom in laws Bday tomorrow, wish me luck! (Yeah oddly enough they have the same Bday, go figure!)

Tuesday, July 15, 2008 LO's

Ok so these have been done for awhile...I've been busy, lazy, and it's been raining!

Def not my fav lo's of all time but yanno sometimes you just have to work through the funk...and that's what I'm doing.

One was from the scrapping the music challenge "You're gonna miss this" which naturally I'm posting late for! The others were just cause...

Oddly enough I just realized...2 are Pool Lo's...and the altered canvases are beach scenes. I'm feeling summer and i didn't even know it!

So in keeping with the trend of stealing challenge blogs from! I found this other one called sketchabilities. They have some pretty difficult sketches and although I struggled a bit I came up with the following LO based on their sketch and examples.

Scrap Mojo and Scrapping the Music

I super love challenge blogs...they definately get the creative juices flowing!!

First up...I'm late but hey I did it!

The song was Drive by Incubus...and I chose the line Whatever tomorrow brings for a LO of my Brother walking across the stage at his Graduation from Film School.

Next is the Elsie inspired Mojo Challenge. We had to pick a line from a Ditty Bops song. I chose Life seems to have a purpose when you're wandering aimlessly and used it with a picture I took of my Niece Michelle earlier this year. We were walking back fromt he bathroom and she just kept walking in all different directions to see if I would follow her. it was super cute and the picture I took of it speaks alot to me. I used a die cut transparency sheet that I bought in Vegas while shopping with the girls so it was difficult to photograph. IRL it's fabulous!
Thanks for looking, and I hope to have more up this evening!!

Happy 4th of July

It was a hot but fun one for us!!

Danny had a surprise in store for all the kids who came over...a giant inflatable Water Slide!!

Wil overheard us talking about something big and water so Danny told him we were getting an elephant for the 4th. He got so excited over it asking questions and imagining himself riding atop this giant beast. It was quite hysterical!

Despite having almost 30 PPL over for the 4th I was able to get a LO done!! Yay me! I used the Sketch over at Gettin Sketchy as inspiration and got this done in no time!

I just love his random little self.

And because you know I have to support a whore, I've done the newest Challenge over at

It was to scrap something you haven't seen done before. Well, if someone else scrapped their random coffee creamer pyramid pic then I'm behind lol

I took this shot along with at least 100 others at breakfast some Sunday Morning this year. We like to have fun and be silly as much as we can!
