Just Friday

So, I've been up since 4:00 AM watching the royal couple wed - amazing.  I think in my next life I want to be a princess!! 

Anyway, here are the last of the Magpie Kit peeks.  Kits go live tomorrow.  You should get one!





I'm certain I'm going to have to nap today, but after that, I'm hoping to find some scrap time - its tough with the big guy home...........

Enjoy your day.

Just Magpie Kit Sneak Peeks

Hello all!  Hope everyone had a fun holiday.  We had a great time.  So, check out these cool, clear plates I used on the Easter table,

with a white tablecloth,




       and a little color.





Loved the look of it. 

Anyway, it was a sunny, 77 degrees yesterday.  The big guy (he's on vacation this week) got the lounge chairs out of the shed and I grabbed a book and sat outside for a few hours reading.  It was heaven.   

We discovered this along the way -  a loner, all by itself, with nothing but grass all around it. KInd of strange, I thought,


And now, I am thrilled and so excited to share some Magpie Kit Club sneaks. Full reveal will be on April 30th.  Lots of scrappy goodness you won't want to miss!   So, without further ado.....





  I'll have more sneaks for you tomorrow!  Until then, have a great day!

Just Happy Easter

Enjoy your time with family, friends and chocolate!  




We're hosting the fam here tomorrow, so I'm off to the stores to pick up something for dinner and something to wear.  I suppose I should have wrapped it up yesterday, but I got sidetracked with a few bright colored twines............

I'll be checking in early nest week with some of those Friday scrappies!

Just some cheery

Hello all and hope you are enjoying this sunny Thursday. I've had a crazy busy week at work - one of my new cases that I spent most of  my time on was a double fatality - sad stuff  at work sometimes   - police reports, autopsy photos - but I've gotten used to it.  Kind of.  When it really gets to me, like this week,  I tend to go for the cheery in my off hours.

Retail therapy works - I think I've mentioned my mascara addiction before.  Here, Lancome Hypnose Drama in black.  LOVE




I know, I know.........way too much talk about the royals lately, but  I picked this up,


Summer and wedge sandals.......a match made in heaven!  The Jessica Gabbie Wedge Sandal has found its way to my closet!



Loved finding this in the mail box,



And more cute little flowers in the yard, do you know what these are?



Sorry I haven't posted my Magpie Club sneaks yet, but they are coming soon! 

And now, for the first time this week, I'm off to do a little bit of creating. 

And tell your guys and dolls you love them.  Life is fragile and can be gone in an instant.

Just a rainy Saturday

Its a great day for experimenting.  I'm thinking I'll eat a little lunch, take a little nap, and get right back to it!

Just Magpie and Other Scrappy Stuff

Hello and happy Friday, and, as promised, the first Magpie peek is wild!!!!  Check it out right

here!!! 

More to come on Monday!

On another scrappy note.......

The incredibly talented Miss Sasha re-challenged my messy desk challenge earlier this week with a little twist -  either scrap your messy desk or create something with pieces of an old Studio Calico kit.

I went with pieces of the old (and one of my faves)  Who's Who  and this time, came up with this



I stamped on the Punky Sprout Canvas bloom for fun - wouldn't it be cool if there were checkered flowers?






Enjoy the rest of your day!  The rest of mine is cleared for creating........

Oh!  An update on things popping up in the yard,



 I'm thinking that spring is officially here!

Just Creating

So, that box in my previous post?  That was my  awesome Magpie kit and I've been playing with the yummys inside of it these last couple of days, and having a blast doing so. 

Check in tomorrow for a sneak peek!

Just Six Saturday Randoms

1.  I love, love my new Epiphany button maker!




2.  I'm so glad I signed up for Kelley Purkey's Sketchbook 3




3.   This was a really fun one with the two little ones last night.


 
4.  Still organizing.  I'm going to use this big white binder and fun circle divider sheet set to keep all of my dowloaded and printed on-line classes in. 




5.  There are still things popping up in the yard that I can't identify




     Although, I know these are daffodils.




6.  My favorite photo of the week - such a pretty pony tail.



Enjoy your weekend, and thanks for stopping by!

Just the Mess on my Desk Layout

and as you will see,  I didn't have any patterned paper on my desk. ........certainly a mish mosh of other stuff, but no patterned paper!  Its all right though, I went with it! 

Studio Calico fab rips, OA labels,  buttons, ribbons, old Scenic Route rubons and a ticket,



an old HS transparency corner, MM chipboard alpha and some twine, who knew?!!!  I must confess though, the Image Tree alphabet was in my stamp drawer and not officially on my desk.



Add a piece of torn cardboard.

The end result,



We've had blue bird blue skies today and it was fairly warm at about 60.  I'm off for a walk.  Enjoy your night and thanks for stopping by.

Just A Peek at the Scrap Room Redo

Hello all and happy Monday.

OK, so I'm so very excited about being a Magpie Girl, so, in anticipation of the arrival of the first kit, I thought it a wonderful reason to redo my room.

I went with orange and green....the walls are pale yellow.

I apologize for the bad lighting.....it was rainy today, gray and gloomy, and, I took these at night.

The big guy snickered at the lime green polka dot curtains....



chipboard, inks, stamps, buttons, brads .............the green box is ready for Magpie


punches...........




more paper, cardstock, embellishments, mists...........



printers, computer, more drawers of stuff........



adhesvies, idea books, die cuts............



SC kits..............


I've got a few things left to do, but tomorrow I'm off from work, and am looking forward to creating in my new surroundings.

Enjoy your night!!

Just A Layout

from yesterday.......... I pulled out some twine, and  glossy accents,


a transparency piece and some puffy paint,


and here is the final outcome,


Enjoy your weekend!

Just April OLW Blog Hop

Welcome April!  Here we "hop" again!  And I'm not "fooling"!!!

So, OLW -  I find myself thinking  of "serendipity" a lot.....and sometimes, serendipity is finding me. 

March was all about action and the ONE action I've been putting off was joining a new gym.  Last year at this time, I was wearing this, in my third month with it, with three more to go,


I lugged that hip to ankle brace around for so long - it still haunts me . When I think back, I can't for the life of me figure out how I slept with that thing on.  So, for those reasons and a few more,  I kept putting off going  back to the gym.  The thought of tearing up my knee again was just too frightening.  Well, thank you for the push to take action Ali, I did it.  On March 12th, I finally signed up at a gym.  I've been going only three times a week, but I'm starting to have more confidence in my leg.  I'm not so sure its serendipitous, but it was an important action for me to take.  Perhaps the serendipty will kick in when I end up in a size 2 when I was hoping  to get to a size 4!!

Anyway, I haven't finished my journaling yet, but here's the page.



I popped some crystal brads through the tabs the twine wraps around


 and, when you flip it out, there is a butterfly on the other side as well.



I had my birthday this month, so I used a large page protecter for those special birthday cards I got.  Yeah........that little girl's envelope is on the top.  That 12 year old penmanship makes me giggle.  We've got a sleepover at auntie's house next Friday - if you have any ideas on something fun to do, please let me know - auntie is running out of them!!!


On the back side of this page, I popped some extra circles on top of the page protector for some added dimension.  And oh!!  How I adored all that "big" stuff by Bazzill!  I was psyched when I found this big paper clip!!



And, to catch up on february (I loved doing the page of small photos), I ended up with these,  Its a cool effect, isn't it?



On a final note,  I challenged myself  one day last month to create a page with the mess on my desk, the one there in the photo,with that fat Martha Stewart ribbon.  I should be posting it next week.  Here is the photo again,

So, there you go!!  The hop goes live at 8:00 AM PST.  From here, I send you to Joy's blog for more March action.

In the event you get lost along the way, here is the entire list.
