I couldn't take any pictures this weekend cause as you probably know I let my friends that got married last week take my camera with them to St Lucia they come back today.I know I'm such a good friend (hehe)but, I miss my lil pink camera.

Well back to scrapping fun. I entered a card onto the Hero Arts monochromatic challenge. I find out the winners later this week. Here is my card in the Hero Arts flickr group

What a Weekend

I hope everyone had a great weekend, my weekend was jam packed. Me and my hubby-to-be were in my friends wedding this weekend. I took tons of pictures and don't worry even though I was up late the night before I had no bags under my eyes. YAY Me. Now to the pictures
A better shot of the wedding card I made for them
Did I tell you guys that I designed the grooms cake (I couldn't wait to see the cake). I jumped at the chance when she asked me( I throw a design together with images on PowerPoint in like 30 mins). I'm not going to lie I cried when I saw the cake and I was so happy that he loved it.

Ok now some more fun pictures I took ( I was trying to be photography & bridesmaid while hanging in the house after my make-up was done lol)
The rings w/ flowers in the background

I loved my make-up
Yes she wore pink shoes. These HOT Betsy Johnson
My feet and her bouquet (cute pic idea I should of have all the bridesmaid do it)

The beautiful Bride
The 1st DanceWere Next August 22nd is right around the corner.

So I made a card for the Moxie Fab Go Green Challenge and today when I was about to take the picture to send it in. I realize I let them take my digital camera on their honeymoon with them. So I had to scan it, I think it would of looked better if I took the picture of it. But its ok, cross your fingers.
P.S. - Go vote in Gallery Idol the top 10 has been picked. I already put in my vote. Go Vote.

P.P.S - I finally got my hands on a copy of Card Creations v7. My and my mom went to Micheal's today for more ribbon for the wedding favors and she surprise me. Thanks again mom.

Go to go put dinner away. Have a good night

The Wedding Card

Its 12:14am and I have to be up by 7am. I should really be sleeping. I pray that I don't have bag under my eyes tomorrow(thank you make-up). I finally finished the card, it would have been better if I wasn't half asleep. So here it is....
I hope they like it. Green is their accent color. The crystals I used are the same ones they used on their wedding invite. I will post better pictures on Sunday, but I have to go to sleep.
This card was inspired by a wedding card from a talented crafty lady in Gallery Idol. Carla thank you I think your work is truly amazing. I could probably go on and on, but its bed time.
Night Night

I'm in the process of making my 1st wedding card which will be done tonight and I'll post it lata. Did you see the amazing wedding cards that were done for Gallery Idol about 2 weeks ago? They were super nice. One card in particular inspired the card I'm making ( you'll have to wait and see). Check them out Gallery Wedding Cards. * The Top 10 cards have been announced go to Gallery Idol to see who made it*

I'll be back later tonight with a picture of the card.

Cosmo Cricket peek


Just wanted to let you know that Cosmo Cricket has let out a sneek peek of their new lines. Go to Cosmo Cricket Blog to check out these great new lines. Your going to flip for these products.

I do LOVE them all, but I have to say that the Christmas line(Jolly by Golly) is my favorite. The colors & characters are great. I'm sure I could use them all year around.

Got to go check out the CK Summer Camp Challenge for the day. I did take a peek early this morning of today's free font (I like).

P.S. - My Maid-Of-Honor (soon to be Matron-Of-Honor) weddings in like 3 days. I'm so excited for them. Me and my fiance are both in the wedding, so Saturdays going to be a long day.

Question of the day: Have you use any of your holiday products for projects that have nothing to do with that holiday?? If no you should challenge yourself. If you have let me know I want to see what you've created.
-Right after Christmas last year I bought a box of Christmas cards by Die Cut with a View(everything is on sale after Christmas). Each card has a beautiful Christmas theme pattern on the front, but if you jazz it up with other kind of paper & embellishments no one will ever know. Here is a Hello Card I made using one of the cards.

Lata Got to Go

My very 1st post

Welcome to my very 1st post. So what should we talk about 1st. I guess I'll let you know what to expect here at my blog. Tons of Paper Crafting fun from scrapbooking to card making. I'll let you know of any crop events in the area, contest, challenges, and you'll learn a little about me. I'll answer a few general questions you may have on your mind about me.

When did I start doing paper crafting?
I started Scrapbooking about 6 years ago, right befor my freshman year of college. It started out as hobby something to do to keep my memories. Then about a yr or 2 ago it became a passion. Something I could see myself doing for the rest of life. I love scrapbooking it allows me to be me. I just dived into card making about 3-4 months ago and I like that I can share a little piece of me with every card I give away to someone.
Whats your fav thing to scrap about?
I love scraping about my family, but my little one is my fav. Kayla she is 13 months now and soo playful.

Whats your fav color?

Whats your fav food?
Mac & Chesse
Where do u shop most of your supplies?
Micheals, QVC and HSN

Why did you start scrapbooking?
I first saw in on QVC and throught it would be fun. So I got a few supplies and got to work. Now Im hooked. I cant stop.

When do u scrap the most?
At night, when shes sleeping.

Whats your fav trend right now?
Flowers, soo pretty

Whats one tool you couldn't live with out?
My Crop-a-dile. It's so true when you get one you want to punch holes in everything.

Thats all for now its almost bed time. So I have a challenge for u. When was the last time you went into your paper crafts and looked at the 1st scrapbook page or card you ever made? Now is the time to take a blast into the past. Go grab your 1st project and put it next to your last project. Has your style changed? do u use more or less? Which do u like better? tell use your thoughts.

Here is my 1st scrapbook page
Close Up
Disney with the Band : In Disney World with the marching band(I was a flag girl). The hat and Magic Kingdom title came from one of the Disney World maps.
The Last Scrapbook page I did
Close Up
Beach Paradise : Me and my girls took my little one to the beach for the 1st time here. These shells came from the beach.
