Apparently, I'm not a good blogger

So it has been a few months since my last

Things have been crazy hectic, but in such a wonderful way.

I haven't had much time to scrap lately.

I was so excited to do this layout. I was missing my Mom, who lives on the east coast, and remembered that scrapbooking reconnects me with the people I love. They might not know it, but it warms my heart to dedicate a page (or more) to them. I think that is why I've taken to this hobby. Me and my wallet....LOL

I don't know if you'll be able to read the captions. They talk about why my mom is my BFF. My favorite thing I wrote for the journaling is, "We talk at least 3x a day and yet somehow that isn't enough". That statement is so true.

I can't wait to do some more layouts.

Thanks for looking

My first card challenge

So, I like to read blogs. This weekend I thought why not create a blog myself. So I did.

Besides scrapbooking (although lately it's more like scrapshopping :) ) I've been really into making cards. I know, I take a lot longer than Hallmark. And, I know I put a ton of my heart into it. Sometimes I even hate to give them away, but I know I must.

I had to make a thank you card for my bosses (my regular day job) and figured why not try a challenge.

With that said, I decided to try Beate's weekend sketch challenge.

Here is a copy of the card I made based from her sketch/tutorial:

I wasn't sure how to properly photograph this. This first picture is it laying on my kitchen table.

This is it sitting on a pretty stand... Does it look prettier? LOL

The inside...

Part of a baby shower Gift

I made this for my friend, Michele, who is expecting a beautiful baby at the end of July.
She, along with the rest of the attendees at the baby shower, loved it.
That makes it all worthwhile.

This is boquet I made for my mother in-law....

Of course, this was made using the cricket. I just love that machine.

First Post

Act and Scrap!!!

My two favorite things to do, act and scrap.

I created this blog so that I may post comments on all the sites of the wonderful, amazing, talented artists.

Scrapbookers are such artists. For me, it's almost like a meditation.

This is some of my work:
