This book was made with a Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist kit, I believe it's called Traveller. It was fun to make. I added some Making Memories Vintage Findings items, as well as, some other items I had especially for Italy.
A birthday book for my sister-in-law.

We've been busy this summer...going to the pool, the beach, the aquarium.... My best friend and her family visited from Illinois, which was a GREAT time! 5 kids running around the house and yard, and 4 parents fighting headaches, sharing laughs and enjoying adult beverages to get through the screaming! hahaha
I believe Elise has found a buyer for the store, which is TERRIFIC news. I can't wait to meet her. Elise and her family are moving back to the upstate, which is sad, but I know her kids are EXTREMELY excited! And, she'll be back to visit, and word is there's a cabin on her property and I think a roadtrip may be in order to do some scrappin'!!! LOOK OUT Elise!!! :):)
I'm getting back in to the swing of things and have been working on some things in my craft room. My mom got me a Cricut Create machine for my birthday and it's AWESOME! I've been playing with it, but really need to watch the DVD that came with it. I made a cute card last night and can't wait to share it. (I have to take a picture first.)
I've been following lots of blogs lately.
- Jennifer McGuire has awesome videos and is doing a Thinking Inking class for Two Peas in a Bucket right now...9 weeks of FANTABULOUS ideas and creations
- Kristina Werner ROCKS with her "Make a Card Mondays" and "Finally Friday" videos
- The Pink Stamper's Robyn has awesome creations with Cricut Expression
- Tim Holtz and Wendy Vecchi just unveiled their newest stamps to be released at CHA
- I LOVE MellyPea's Weekly Warehouse walks at Two Peas in a Bucket
Two Peas is one of my new fave places to visit too. There's a TON of inspiration there!!! My best friend, Kim, talks about this site all the time, and I would always give her a hard time. But, after visiting a few times, now I know why she LOVES it!
So, I'm back to posting, and will do a better job at keeping this place updated! Check back soon for some new pics!

We just got back from my parent's house, where we attended our first Steeplechase. It was a beautiful day and a wonderful experience. Well, except for the dealing with 2 hungry boys who were in foul moods until their tummies got fed! Mr. P had an attitude until 1/2 the PB&J sandwich was down. Then, Mr. E took over with the attitude, started throwing his sandwich, so Daddy took it away, and Mr. E proceeded to stuff a hand full of grass in his mouth. YES, I said grass! And, did my mom or I have the cameras out, of course not! So, we'll just have to journal about that wonderful (NOT!) experience! Other than that, the day was terrific! Both boys snapped out of it and we enjoyed the rest of the day!

The boys making valentines for daddy! LOVE to cut & paste.
I'm not a big fan of Valentine's Day! I think it's a little commercial to have a day to tell someone "I Love You," when you should do it EVERY DAY!!! I've felt this way for some time, but still make valentines for my loved ones. I'm going to enjoy this day of love with my family and my brother and sister-in-law. The boys are looking forward to seeing their aunt and uncle.
Hope you all spread the love today! Happy Valentine's Day!!

The boys got to stay up as late as they wanted. Little E fell asleep around 10:00 and Mr. P went to bed around 10:30. BUT, they were both up at the normal time of 7:00am. Lucky us, NOT!!! Our computer is on the fritz right now, so I'll have to upload pics as soon as I get the problem solved.
Now, the Rose Bowl Parade just started, football is on today and we're having Italian Beef later. YUMMY!!! We're also working on organizing the house and purging, so some of that will take place throughout the next few days. My goal is to have everything done by Jan. 31st. We'll see! I have some other resolutions for this year. Hopefully I accomplish a few of them.
Okay, so have you ordered your KOTM from Becky Higgins. Project 365....I can't wait!!!!
