Friday, 27th

My friend came over a few weeks back needing help making the memory board she bought for her daughter. We found this at a scrapbook shop for only 23.99. It was completly unfinished wood with a square tin in the middle to display whatever on magnets. She wanted to use the Rusty Pickle Girlfriends line. I think it turned out so cute!!

Friday blogger challenge question on twopeas:
If you could only eat 3 things for the rest of your life, what would they be?
1. Candy, I could not live without it. A variety.
2. Cold sandwhiches, like turkey and cheese..i love them very much.
3. The boiled chicken salad that I make. Only the one that I make. I could eat them every day for lunch and dinner.

I've been doing the Scraplift Challenges at Twopeas lately. I like those, because you get to "lift" or copy another person's work, and make it your own. Basically, you take an idea of theirs and turn it into your own work.
This is a layout that I did last week. I lifted a talented artist with the domain name of bacarson.
I lifted this layout she did of her cute daugher:

This is my version of it. I had this silly photo of Claire and knew it would go perfect.

The journaling says:

I dont think you know the meaning of the word. Well, I know you dont, you're only 6. But still. I always describe you as a "free spirit". Where the hell did you get your personality anyway? I know it's not from your quiete father or reserved mother. Your brother puts us both to shame in the game of self control.
But my dear are an individual all your own. I"m so proud of that. Even when you're struting around in a bikini at the age of 6 showing off "your buisness". One day, you'll be the death of me. But today, I laughed and laughed at your goofy smile and tummy sticking out and it felt good.

Make it Monday,....or Tuesday!

Well, I fouled up and didnt get my Make it Monday done. So I will save it for next week.
So this week I am going to do the sketch challenge on Beate's Blog. You can find all the information about it on her blog...just click on Fresh N Fun over to the right!
This was her sketch challenge this week.

And this is what my card looks like that I did with the sketch....

Gotta love the pink and black! I used felt underneath the circle. Enjoy your week, I'll be back later with more artwork I am working on. Let's see what you have done with the sketch this week!
Two peas blog challenge: Do you stamp on your layouts?
Are you kidding? That is how I started off scrapbooking! I had no idea that you could buy paper already decorated! (patterend paper!) I thought I had to make it all!! In other words, yes, I DO stamp on my scrapbook pages! But not as often as I used to.

A quick note...

Sorry I have not done Make It Monday yet. I will get it up soon. I did not have the material's at home like I thought I did, so that slowed it up. Also things around the house and with family yesterday. I will get something new up here later today or tonight, even if it is not what I originally had in mind.
Thanks for bearing with me!

Harry Potter love.....

I got it...the new Harry Potter....

Actually, I have not bought it yet. I was lucky enough to be one of the few ppl who got a copy from the library!! I have 3 weeks with this baby. (and with 759 pages I may need all of those!) I am sure I will buy it, as I have all 6 of the other books, but just not yet. I would not classify myself as a "Potter Freak". I dont go around in robes or whitch hats at every new book/movie. But they are fun.....

So I am back from a trip to my mom's and I purchased a few news things! My new gadget that I am really excited about is called Precision File Set. I am not a really gadget type person. So I dont fall for alot of the newest, latest, and greatest things. But this was something that I could really use. It is made by Basic Gray and it is 6 files. The description on the container says:
Tiny grooves and spaces become reachable with this precision file set. Distress chipboard, plastic, paper and metal- all with sharpening results.Each file features a rubber-coated grip for comfort and ease of use.

It will make covering chipboard so much easier! There are always those little spots I just cant get to with my sandpaper!! I am so excited to use this.

Two Peas Challenge:
What would you consider your style? I would have to say that my style is anything goes. I like alot of different looks. I try to go simple on my pages but it does not always work out like that. I like all the different styles and do whatever my mood is.

Make sure to check back tomorrow for Make It Monday!!
