I GOT IT!!!! YAY!!!!

It is ALL mine! SOOOO Excited! I even bit the bullet and bought the second lens...right now Best Buy is having a special (yesterday they were anyway!) 18 months INTEREST FREE!!!! YES! And they came really close to beating Costco's $! So, I am happy! Rhett got a new suit from Mr. Mac's and for those of you who don't know my hubby, he LOVES nice suits and every time he graduates with another degree he gets a new one and he just finished his Admin Endorsement (we all call it the 2nd Masters!) NOW I just need to take a class on how everything works! loL! LOVE IT!!!! :) and I have a year and a half to pay it off! :)

I REALLY want to scrap today...yesterdays events (my Valeries 6th Bday party) really has put me in the mood...i seriously dreamt a layout....loL! Look at these super cute pictures! And my printer is not working so good right now...I guess I am going to have to break down and send them to walmart (which I only do if i am in a really big hurry! I usually do which right now is having a SALE...4 cents for 4x6 pictures!) anyway, I will send them to Orem so I can pick them up tomorrow when we go hang with my inlaws for the weekend and scrap away up there! lol! Can't wait!

"Bella" is the WSOTG kit for this months order, next months club gathering....once again...I LOVE CTMH paper!!!! Just cannot help myself!!! LOVE IT. Had so much fun putting these pages together! Yes...I stamped and cut out 50 flowers (but hey, stamp and put in a movie...anything with Matthew McConnahottie in it works for me! lol! and CUT away!) and I used a zillion Garden Green Brads..which I am almost out of.... BUT I love the colors and the way they all went together..... This month Kit costs: $26.50 plus tx/sh! COME PLAY!

LAYOUT 1: "Beautiful Girl"

I found the idea for the first layout on Jeanette Lyntons Blog under "Color Me Monday: A new leaf...June 8th....her's is labeled "thirteen" and I labeled mine..."Beautiful Girl" and did these beautiful pictures of Jentrie (my 7 year old) I took these pictures on Mother's Day and they could not of been MORE perfect for the Bella Paper! I just went with the same idea for page 2 and changed it up a bit! I used the flower stamp sets from last Junes SOTM: With Love and "Tickled Pink" stamp set. The Alphabet is the Chocolate Sets both large and small....LOVE THEM! And the Fun Frames Dimensional Elements....They came together TO CUTE!!!

LAYOUT 2: "When We Love..."
The first layout is also and idea from Jeanette's blog under Color Me Monday: Hollyhock in Bloom, June 15th.... and the second layout idea from Color Me Monday: Heavenly Blue, May 4th...I LOVE idea's for layouts. To see how I can change them up and make them my own....On these layouts I used the Building Block Alphabet and the Classmate Alphabet....some Bella Stickease...more flowers (cut from the 50 before mentioned ;) Best of all my models....My Valerie and Hubby taken on our vacation to AZ...loved the way it all worked out because it wasn't what was in my brain...this turned out even BETTER!!!

LAYOUT 3: "Let Us Grow..."

I got lucky with this one, I needed one more layout to display and this is what happened! lol! I used all stickease and paper....and Dimensional Elements Borders (leftover from the Animal Cookies Kit ~ Yay!) using Olive ink and sponge daubers to color the swirls and some liquid glass to make them POP!!! 3-D foam tabs to lift the flowers from the Stickease set, a bit of Hollyhock ribbon and wallah!!!!! Can't wait to put my pictures on these pages!...AND I have TON's of paper leftover for MORE fun Bella pages!...I LOVE WSOTG.....I have never made so many pages per month in my life as I have with the WSOTG! between 6 & 8 pages (and sometimes 10!) per kit! If you are WSOTG Gals from GUNNISON you SHOULD have at the very least 36 pages w/or without pictures....up to July and if you do the bonus pages you should have aprox. 46 pages! whew WHOO!!! I need a NEW album!
*For ordering or gathering/club/party/ information please leave me a comment ;)
Happy Scrappin' and Stampin'!

Just a few things I have done the last few months....WOW I am SO behind in my posting! Oh, well better late than never!...This is what I did for my kid's teachers as a "Thank You" for the last day of school....I loved the water bottle idea which I found and copied from this blog

(i love blog lerking onto fabulous CTMH Consultant Blogs...they give me much inspiration!

Inside the little pouch I put 2 little lemonade packets and a gift certificate for lunch at cute! And way simple and in expensive...

My kids with their little gift on the last day of school!

I made this little mini album for my son's teacher who also just happens to be a good friend...I know I found this idea on another blog...but for the life of me cannot find it! SO I am not taking credit for this creation...just went with the THANK YOU...whoever you are! (found it! But what a great IDEA...the poem is darling! (click on picture to read)Here are a few of the pages I made using the Magic Moments Paper Packet level it! I also use several different stamp sets...mostly the Word Puzzle Months and the Solo's...they all have so much fun stuff on them...lots of cute little random stamps...the album is SEI 6"x6" that I modge podged fun B&T duos from the Magic Moments kit.. are a few graduation cards I made for a few of the graduating SR's who sent us invitations (my husband teaches High School and Coaches both Football & Basketball) I loved the stamp of the month for first I was a bit unsure until I started to use it! I used the Silhouette Level II paper Packet and added some Hollyhock Pink...then embossed the little dress and added som glitter...toooo cute...and it went to a too cute little gal! Next, "2009" I did with my CTMH Solo's..., the black squares are done with a square block..really...until the ink went dry, then the next card was made with the Game On level II paper packet...using the Solo's for the '09 and the football from the stamp set "Touchdown".....way fun!

This is a photo cube I made for my brother in-law Kirk. He is a special needs uncle and he LOVES mickey!!! I found this idea from Youtube. (to watch the demo or click on the blog link to go straight to her blog)
I bought brand new cd covers (they were like 50 cents a piece for a whole I have lots of photo cubes to make! watch out you just might get one! lol!) really ... the mickey mouse cut outs are from the Cricket (which I don't own, but a cute litte scrap store in Ephraim will cut them out an just charge you for the paper or the cut out if you have your own they only cost me like $2.00 for all 4 3" cutouts...yay!) I used the Celebrate stamp set and misc. paper from my scrap pile....he loves it...he can put tissues in it...or treasures or more pictures...even treats! fun idea and fast!

I have more projects to post...just not downloaded like a fun mini album I made Rhett for fathers day and more layouts for club...and some cute little recipe books I did for personal progress (Young Womens church program)...stay tuned!
