Just Hey All

and happy Friday.  Well, I've been meaning to update all week, but I kept getting distracted - the weather has been spectacular after what was about 13 days of rain, B and I are still reading Pretty Little Liars, on book four, I'm oving the gym and going more and more and other miscellaneous stuff.

I've also been all caught up in the Stanley Cup playoffs GO BRUINS!!!!!!!  Tonight is game seven against Tampa Bay.  Fingers crossed..........and really, who didn't catch Idol fever this week!!

I've been without my truck since Tuesday - OMG $2,189.53 worth of damage from my little altercation with the garage..........I'm not sure I'll ever get over that whole thing - or ever pull into the garage ever, ever, again. 

And, on to the scrapping..................GO GET A JUNE MAGPIE KIT!!!!  I won't give away any more details yet, but it is absolutely magnificent.  I''ve so enjoyed creating with its contents.  And of course, I have peeks..........

Ok, they are dropping the puck................ more peeks to come!!

Just Back

....... after a  little blog break thanks to that  BIG BLOGGER BLIP 

........after having to work an extra day last week which really crunched my time - I hate going off schedule.

........after managing to destroy the headlight and  entire driver's side front quarter of my Envoy by having a collision with the side of the garage.  I know - go figure.  I crashed into the garage.  I still don't know how that happened, but lesson learned.

......after having agreed to have a private little book club with my favorite niece and having to read  the first two books of Sara Shepard's Pretty Little Liar series.  Oh my!!  There are eight of them!!!!  Thankfully, I've  been given a three day break before beginning book three.

......after a chinese lunch with one friend, an italian dinner with another, and breakfast with mom and dad.

      Yep, sometimes things just get hectic and time doesn't allow me any creative time.  But, I got my  June Magpie Kit in the mail today and IT IS THE BOMB!!!!!!!!    So tomorrow, its off to yoga in the morning and then I'm locking myself in my room for some peace and creating - no reading, no working, no car crashing, no out to eats - just peace and creating.  Look for some peeks really soon.

Until then, a couple of cards created with May's Magpie Kit.

Just A Sudden Road Trip

So, I got up Friday morning, full of energy, and ready to take on nothing but playing with paper and glue for NSD.  Then, just after I settled down in my room, the big guy said, hey, lets go to MGM Grand for the weekend.  It took just a teeny bit of convincing - we threw some things in a bag and were gone within the hour.  I was bummed to miss all the fun happenings at Studio Calico, but.................. we had a blast.  

Love me those red velvet cupcakes

polka dot black forest cake

a room with a view - 26 floors up

and you must try this luxury bowling thing

LOVED this wall paper at the bowling alley

We indulged way too much!!!!!  I just can't resist room service .

I'm off to yoga now, and when I get home, I'm going to have my own NSD!   I took lots of photos, so I'm thinking mini book.  The big guy is working today, so I know I won't have any sidetrips!!

Just Happy National Scrapbook Day

Popping on to wish everyone a fun-filled NSD!  Create, play and enjoy your snacks!  I'm otherwise engaged - away from my scraproom - but am looking forward to diving into some paper and glue tomorrow!

Until then, how about misting a frame for your photos,

And I know I keep repeating myself, but I hope you have checked out the May Magpie kit - its just full of yummy, scrappy goodness  The layout above is yet another made from it, and seriously, I didn't add anything much from my stash on any of them.

Enjoy your day and thanks for stopping by.

Just I Wish........

and a few more little details.

Like zig zag stitching and a torn fabric strip,

scrunched up fab rips by Studio Calico a staped piece of rick rack, paper clip and some layered chipboard,

And so, another layout from the marvelous May Magpie kit.

Just Some Little Details

First, a big thanks to Margie for coordinating the OLW blog hop on Sunday, and thanks to all of you who visited.  It was fun, wasn't it? 

Since then, I've been noodling around between work and the back yard, enjoying the warm weather we've been having.  So much  outside looks and feels  like summer now.  I LOVE it.

Anyway, I've another Magpie Kit layout to share with you, with a few close ups of the little details.  I love little details.  I'm such a white space scrapper, so I usually  have lots and lots of details clustered around my photo.  I  do hope you've checked out this May Magpie kit,.  Its packed with  Cosmo and Studio Calico, with a bit of Basic Grey and more thrown in.

So, some little details. 

like lcut up banner flags and edging just about everything with paint,

a spurt of hand stiching,

more stitching, on ribbon to make a little gather, attached with tiny staples,

and sequins attached with french knots

The end result?

So thats it!  Done.

For now, I'm off to a yoga class.

Just OLW Blog Hop - May

May 1st, and you know what that means........................... OLW is on the hop again, so here we go!!

Our class assignment this month was to write a letter to ourselves, a letter that speaks of maybe how things are going, or where you want to go.  And leave it to Ali - she ROCKS!!  Have you heard of FutureMe?  Totally cool.  My letter will be sent back to me next year on May 1st.  I'm not posting it here, but I enjoyed writing it, and it will be fun to discover where things end up a year from now.

We were also to include a photo of ourselves, so I went with this one, edited in LoFi.  Perfect for those of us who love all things retro.  Its only 29 bucks and well worth the fun.  It gives you the ability to add films, moods and frames to your photos.

And another, just for fun.

Thanks to Magpie Girl Sheri, for turning me on to that!

Next up on the hop is Miss Cindy, right here
