Lets see some pages!!

So March is coming to an end. And I haven't seen any March Calendar pages yet?!? I already have a great RAK set aside. And it's cheerfully springy! So lets see some pages! You have until Monday, March 31, 2008 at 11:59pm to get them posted.

Post your layouts to THIS post. (it's a link)

I don't think i've updated on Matt's surgery. It went really well. The doctor was very pleased. He is now on "bed rest" haha for 48 hours. Well that 48 hours ends today. So he will leave the apt. for the first time this afternoon. He can't drive though because the right leg is in a brace and has to be straight. It's now recovery period. So hopefully it goes smoothly and quickly.

I haven't had time to scrapbook though since I've been taking care of him - getting him water, ice, food, etc. So he doesn't move much. So hopefully I'll have projects soon!! I should have time this weekend.

If you are a MemoryWorks consultant - I will be hosting challenges on the Message Board next month - so don't forget to check them out! You could win prizes from Home Office or a RAK from me!

March Calendar & More

I completed my March Calendar page (finally). I worked on this for a few days. I'm happy how it turned out. The coloring on the 2nd picture is a little weird. I took the pictures in RAW and this is the first time I worked with RAW pics...so my editing isn't the greatest yet.

How are your MARCH CALENDAR pages coming along?? Post HERE to enter to win a RAK from me...I cleaned today and found some pretty cool stuff to give for my next RAK!

The first picture is truer to color.

Besides that - i created this layout for Sandy's Challenge on the MW message board:

AND the snow is never going to end. I took these pictures yesterday. Seriously -the snow was almost all melted and we got more!
Note: ALL the pictures above are in RAW...i've never worked with pictures in RAW before - so I'm still learning.

New Phone

I got a new phone today and it's HOT!!!! I love love love it!! Now I have to figure out how to use it. It's a little complex than what I'm used to. It's RED...it has a mp3 player (not that I don't have an iPod already - but who cares you can never have enough - right?

So thanks to my hotty Matt for my new delicious phone! It was needed...i could barely see the screen on my old phone.

Here is my new cute phone!

More AWESOME products

This is such a great time being a MemoryWorks Consultant and customer. The new catalog will be released next month (Mid-April)!! But they don't make us wait. They have already released products from: Fancy Pants Designs, 3 Bugs in a Rug, and Cosmo Cricket (see post below). NOW, we have a fabulous release from BasicGrey & Crate Paper. Here are some of my FAVORITE items from these brands!!

I love love LOVE these STAMPS...yes STAMPS!!! My favorite swirl rubons are now stamps...i'm so excited to get my hands on these!
These are some fun journaling stamps from BasicGrey. I can't wait to create awesome titles and page elements with these stamps!
Aren't these BasicGrey stickers adorable. They are part of BG's "Sugared" Collection

Crate Paper

I'm usually not a pastel type girl, but these papers are awesome. I love the blue and green mixed with the orange! And the patterns on these papers are Great!!! This line is called Sweet Branch (by Crate Paper) Check out the great embellshments we carry too!!
I think these rubons from Crate Paper are awesome. They are "Sentiments' Rubons and seem right for ALL occassions! I love using rubons like this for cards and tags!

So those are my latest favorites - added onto my favorites below. Once I get buying i'm going to run out of money. But everything is so yummy!!!!

On another note:
Matt goes in for Surgery a week from today. He can't take any pain killers this week. So hopefully it won't be a very painful week.

Happy Weekend!!!

I love weekends. They are relaxing for the most part. Today I got up and started to knit another pair of leg warmers - they are going to be cute!! They are pink!!! I also did a little scrapbooking today - i needed to do a lot more. I will post projects tomorrow probably. I am also working on a clutch for my friend. Her birthday was this last week and we are celebrating it tonight...however - it won't be finished for tonight. It's cute though. It was my first felting project!

The only BAD part about today - it's SNOWING!!!! They said light flurries. It has snowed non-stop all day. The weather people lied! Like always.

Well I'm working at the studio right now and rehearsal is ALMOST done - which means little kids running all over the place. AWWWWW...

04 March 2008


Well Matt has to get Surgery. March 25th is the date. The doc said he would be on crutches for about 10 days and than a 4 month recovery time. But after that he should be as good as new. Just in time for a new season with the ballet company and the dance studio.

So hopefully he has a fast recovery!

Here are some pictures I took this weekend. Matt found out yesterday that he tore his ACL. EEKS...we will find out tomorrow what the next step is. I feel horrible for him.
