Quick Post

I had to come and show you a few things first HSN has the Cricut bundle for only $199.95. This is a crazy amazing price and did I tell u FREE shipping and handling. Go to to read about everything that's in this bundle. I wish I could buy it now, but the wedding is Saturday, so I can't still paying for stuff :(

Also, about a month ago I wrote on the papercrafts connection blog about giving us blog readers a tour of the office and they did. It was great and I really appreciated it. Go Check it out. Thanks Papercraft connection for granting my wish.

Got to Go, hope to see u soon. I'm going to try and post again before Saturday and see if I can figure out how o post from my phone.

Here it is

Hello, so here is the card I made for the Hero Arts weekly challenge

I went to Micheal's sometime last week and for the first time I saw the Making Memories NEW Vintage Findings collection in person. Making Memories you did a great job with this collection there are so many things to choice from. I love the silver vintage letters. I have my eye on these cute lil roses and pearls that I have to go back for(I should have took a pic for you guys). Here are 2 quick photos I took (YES there is a clearance sign up already)
Over the weekend we went to the mall and in the parking lot I took some daddy & daughter photos. They look so cute walking hand in hand. Kayla is wearing this oh so cute Gap outfit the matching jacket is in the stroller.

Well that's it for now. Oh I'm so excited to tell you all that I will be attending my 1st crop event YAYAYAY. I will be participating in ScrapPink (This is a really great cause, read about it) with The Manhattan Scrapbooking Meetup Group. It's on September 26 which is great cause I'll have some wedding pictures back and I will have started the honeymoon book already. I can't wait.
P.S. - Our rehersal BBQ and bachlor/bachlorette parties are this weekend. So this is going to be a jam pack crazy weekend and I have to start packing for the honeymoon this weekend too.
*Do something creative today and everyday*

12 more days

Yes, there are only 12 more days till the wedding. I can't believe it I feel like I've been planning this wedding forever (lol). So I've been really busy which is why I haven't wrote in a few days sorry, but after the wedding & honeymoon I'll be writing more.

Oh my small order from Two Peas in a Bucket came in on Saturday. It was packaged nicely thanks Two Peas in a Bucket.

Quick run down of what I orders.

Wedding I Do spiral journaling book (making memories) - I'm going to journal a lil in Jamaica so I can just slip it into the layout when I do the honeymoon book.

Addie Noteworthy spiral journaling book (making memories) - love it, I have to see the rest of the products that go with this line.

Zig Memory System 2 way glue (EK Success) - I saw it in scrapbook haul by CpeilScraps and I said I had to have it, so I got it. I works really well.

Ribbon 1/4 (KI Memories)- Its cute I 'll use it on a wedding thank you card.

P.S. - I forgot to tell you last week I went to Micheal's to get another basket for the bubbles and I found this clearance section in Micheal's that I have never seen before it was in the back of the store. I looked around and you wont believe what I found some Sizzix Sizzlets alpha 35-Die Set ( I have been wanting one ever since I got my sizzix sidekick about 3-4 months ago, but those sets run for about $ 149.99 so I had to wait for a sale and I found one). $10.00 I paid $10.00 for the Sunset alpha set ( I was so happy I almost cried). It's so pretty.
They also have the Mac'n'Chesse and Alpha Bubbles set maybe after the wedding I'll see about getting another one, but I'm so happy with my new set of alpha dies. That shows good things come to those who wait.

P.S.S - I finish boxing all my favors this weekend. YAY Me

Well got to go and I'll come back later with some pic updates

A little shopping at Target

Hello, Hope all is well.

I had some credit at Target and did a little shopping. I wanted to do a Vlog of everything I picked up at Target, but I don't have my charged for my camera and I'm sure the battery would have died and I cant go without my camera, so I took a few snap shots before I dived into my stuff and made a card before I went to sleep. Here is an overview of my new stuff. If you didn't know Target has a dollar section and they scrapbooking supplies to for just 1 dollar. The paper quality is not the best, but the embellishments, ribbon,and brads are really nice. So I bought a pack of die cut frames & tags and the matching ribbon,note cards, and brads. They have alot of matching product lines, so I plan on going back and going dollar crazy. I also got my 1st border punch it's by Fiskars, some Glue Dots, and a expendable file folder which I have already filled with stickers I want to get another one for alpha, but bigger.

Here is the tag I made for the Hero Arts Challenge lat week. I didn't win, but you should check out the winners and the flickr group. The tags came out really nice. Thank you for all the comments about my tag in the flickr group I really appreciate it.

Talk to ya lata and have a crafty day.

Here are the pictures I promised.....
The gift bag and card that I made for our friends sons b-day. I love the jungle theme if you like its by Die Cuts With A View (8x8 stack Safari Kids). Sorry no close up pics. I just got my camera back the same day, so I took the pic on the hood of the car right before we gave her the gift. I think it came out rather nice.

My cake at the Bridal Shower......Thank You Genna, I love it the sparkles look so pretty.

My Bridal Party.....thanks ladies u guys and my mom did a great job.

Me in my chair. I gave my mom my dress last week and she keep the dress since it was a surprise shower.

Some of my gifts, I got tons of goodies.

I'm think about making a slide show, but I have no time so it probably wont happen anytime soon. Maybe I'll just post a layout when I do one.

P.S. - I came home today and checked the mail boxed and guess what was inside September 2009 issue of Creating Keepsakes YAYAYAY. I love when CK comes in the mail. Well got to go

P.P.S - I don't think I will be entering Hero Arts weekly challenge this week due to the fact that I only have that one Hero Arts Stamp which I used for the last 2 weekly challenges. So I'll have to sit this one out until I get a few bucks to buy another Hero Arts Stamp. Cross your fingers for me the winners for last weeks challenge should revealed in a day or two.

Monday Morning

Good Morning, hope u had a great weekend. This weekend was packed with fun. Sat Aug 1st was my surprise Bridal Shower ( I was really surprised). I thought we were going to our friends son 2nd B-day party. I was in the car finishing up his B-day card and we pulled over by some resturtant/bar to ask for directions to get to the bridge. I went in he asked for water while we were inside and they took us to a room and everyone yelled SURPRISE. It was really nice I had fun and we recieved alot of nice gifts. *I'll post up the pictures later tonight when I get home* I have a picture of the gift bag and card I made for him. She did come to the bridal shower so I was able to give her the gift for him.
