I'm alive, and back to crafting!

It's been a while since I've been able to post some scrappy-ness. So to get out of my slump I made this card for our InSpiration Challenge.

The paper is Bo Bunny. I love it.

I have a ton of cards to post and will soon.

Thanks for stopping by. I should have some blog candy soon.

Hello Hump Day!

It's midway through the week and I can't wait for it to be over already. I'm not feeling that well and I can't afford to be sick so I'm pumping up the healing thoughts and resting in between working. We'll see how it goes.

Cute and Quick post. Just Saying hi. This is our tulip image. It's available in Rubber and Digital

Have a fabulous day!

Best Friend's

I love my mother in law. She is a great person and very loving. She treats me well and we get along awesomely. I lucked out with her.

I decided to have an image created for her and her sister. They are very close and don't really get to see each other that often.

So here's to best friend's that turn out to be sisters!

Emily and Irene are available DIGITAL and RUBBER

The inventory is being updated. Just send me an email if you don't see the rubber available, it is. Our website is acting wonky today.

Have a great week!

Phat Tuesday!

I'm so glad this week is moving for me. Last week just went on and on. Normally I'm excited for certain days of the week, like tonight is my season finale of Flipping Out and Glee. Tomorrow I have my Just Desserts! And Thursday I have Grey's Anatomy AND Housewives of Beverly Hills premiere. Yeah I'm a fun one right? ROFLOL.

Here is a little card that I thought would be a cute pick me up. Here's Hoppy Chloe. Awh, she's spending time with a friend.

Even when doubt causes you to close your eyes to your surrounds and fret, Believe. Even when you need the sun but the rain seems never ending, Believe. Even when you are tired and it seems you have to far to go, Believe.

Always believe. Believe in yourself, believe in your family, Believe.

I used Chloe Wishing on a Star for this project. She is available here for only $3.00.

Have a great Tuesday!

Costa Rica

I had a good vacay in Costa Rica with my cousin and her friend. It was the first time I'd ever gone out of the country without my hubby. I'm glad we had a blast.

While Costa Rica wasn't what I expected, it's still beautiful none-the-less. I say that because I've been to the Carribean and the water is OMG gorgeous. I was expecting the same because each picture I saw showed something similar and even the travel agent said it was crystal clear. I should have really known better considering it's on the Pacific ocean side lol. Now there is a Carribean side with clearer water. It's nothing like say St. John's.

Anywho, here are some pics.

This is the boardwalk at the resort. We were in Puntarenas.

Big Guy right? He was a guest at the resort we stayed at. There were a lot of iguana's.

And here's a close up. He wanted to eat me I think. :)

And here is the mangrove we toured. It happened to be the best swimming spot. Why?

Because of these. This crocodile was HUGE! There were a bunch of them. So the spot was pretty empty lol.

And here is a bee. Beautiful I think.

And this is Jurassic Park. Creepy right?

And how about having this outside your door? He was ugly.

One of the swim up bars at the resort. We had a total of 5 pools. Beautiful

And some floral beauties.

Of course there were tons more photos. But I'm too lazy to go through them all. So those are just some highlights lol. Have a great Sunday.

What to do?

It's Saturday, and I'm all alone. Well my mom and Jade are around. But my best friend-My hubby- is off for his monthly weekend with the Marine Corps. I miss him when he is gone. He is my road dog lol.

So I'm trying to figure out what to do for this weekend. He won't be home until Tuesday. That is a long time.

So I thought I'd post some pictures of his trip to Africa last month. I will post some of my Costa Rica vacation tomorrow. Enjoy!

He went to Ghana on this trip. This is my husband Armando at a dam there.

Here he is on a rope bridge. He actually has a few pics of him hanging on a vine from the side.

That's a male lizard of some sort. You can tell the gender by the color of the head and tail. He threw it a peanut to get its attention. Looks like it has a scuba suit on...very smooth looking.

And here he is with some local kids. They loved him as you can see. He's the first one sitting down with all the kids on his head. :)

Stop by tomorrow. I'll share a few more pics from my trip.

Friday, September 10, 2010

Friday, Finally!

Hubby is leaving til Tuesday. I hate when he leaves. I miss him terribly. I think it is because he just got back from a 3 week trip and in the beginning of summer he was gone for another week. I'm just being a baby lol.

Anyway, here is something for the mood. :) Meet Buster. How cute is this guy? And he is available only in rubber!

He is the same dog with the image Pam and Buster.

Thanks for looking.

And another appt.

I have another dr's appt today. Thankfully the last one until the 20th. Then I will be all caught up with my physicals for the year. :)

Not sure if I shared with card with you all yet. But it soo cute, I thought I'd share it again.

Car is only $2.00. Go get it now. It is perfect for those whimsical projects.

Wednesday, September 8, 2010

Happy Hump Day!

Hope your day is going great. I have a dr's appt today and I'm so not looking forward to it. Blech!

Shopping always brightens my mood. So I decided to make this little number.

This is our cocktail dress. Perfect for any occasion I think.

What do you think? Everyone should have a little black dress with some bling right?

Tuesday, September 7, 2010

All moved in.

Hello, Thanks for stopping by. I'm all movevd in, however I've seemed to mis-place a few items lol. Hopefully I will be able to find them. I can't believe how absent-minded I've been lately. Really, it needs to stop now.

I won't be stamping for awhile because I have no room literally. However, I've made up a bunch of cards prior to the move that I'm going to be showcasing. I want to start with this one, Twirling Chloe:

My sister decided she is going to take ballet lessons. She is very tall and thin. But I'm not sure about the graceful part. She is actually kinda accident prone, so this will be cute to watch lol.

I decided to use Twirling Chloe because she is adorable. Anyway, Hope you had a happy Tuesday!

You will automatically be entered to win 4 digital images of your choice. The DT member who gets the most votes for their project also gets a fun prize.

I hope you arrived here from Genevieve's Blog. If you didn't, please start at the beginning with Kimmie's Blog.

I hate to see summer come to an end, but really I'm happy because I'm a fall/winter gal! I love the changing of the leaves and the first snow. Cozy and all snuggled up with my hubby is how I want to spend my days.

Our theme this month is End of Summer. I decided to use a sneak peek of one of our new Chloe's that will be released September 24th. Her name is Sitting Chloe and she was paired with our cloud that is currently availble for sale. This cloud is a digital image and I love it because I was able to make it larger to fit the card. And for only $2.00, you can't go wrong!

Make sure you go back to the company blog and vote for your favorite project! Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend.

I Miss Shoe!

It's hump day! Just a few more days til the weekend. I'm not looking forward to it. Starting packing already and I'm wiped out. I hate moving!

Anywho, who likes shoes? I do! But I love purses more. :) My cousin though LOVES all kinds of shoes, especially wedges. How great is this Wedge image? It's only $2.00 too. That is cheap! The sentiment says, "I Miss Shoe!"

I used May Arts ribbon to make the straps. I then used my cuttlebug to emboss the base of the shoe and added some crystals and glossy accents. It's girly I think, without the typical girly colors.

Thanks for stopping by. See you soon!

Tuesday, August 24, 2010

Happy Tuesday

Hope you are having a great Tuesday so far. My husband got back from Africa on Sunday and we decided to spend a few days down in San Diego. I was so glad to see him.

This next week is going to be extremely crazy. We are moving and we have to pack up the house. He was gone for most of August and I decided to wait for him to get back lol.

All this change in my life has got me thinking about those special people in my life. I'm veery blessed to be surrounded by some special relationships.

Here's Tatiana. She is a great tennis player. Ain't she cute? :)

The sentiment says, "Life is a game best played with friends." I think it is appropriate. Don't take life that seriously. Work hard and play hard!

Release Day!

I hope you enjoyed our sneaks this week. Today is the big day for the release! We are also showing off Ellie and Hanna!

Up first are these delish red velvet cupcakes Jade and I made. We then got large tooth picks (not sure what they are called) and added Ellie in grey and purple. We decided to give all the little girls in our family under the age of 3 their own name tag. How cute is that?

Next Up is our sweet little Hanna. She is adorable. I decided to make a little baby book. I pulled out my handy dandy bind it all and decorated a few inside pages. Hanna is ready to show off photo's!

And lastly, another Ellie. I used this Ellie for a welcome baby card. I decided on pink because well most elephants are grey lol.

Make sure you stop by for our release party over at Paper Craft Planet. You will definitely win some little goodies!

First up is Linc. I decided to do a scrapbook page with Linc. How cute is this? The little guy sleeping is my great nephew Sumajay. What a cutie!

And next is Let's Hang! I love monkeys. I went through my papers and found I had a whole stash of monkey paper AND fabric, but I never use it go figure.

The little beauty is Mayah! I'm sorry for the delay in posting it. I tried to coordinate times with the blog but it didn't happen lol.

I made the tree freehand and put the image on little square blocks of chipboard. Thanks for stopping by!

Sneak Peek Day 2


Today is day 2 of our August releases so make sure you stop by and take a look at the other projects.

I finally tried a slide card. Actually Jade and I did it together. She did the coloring and the glitter. I made the card. :) We decided to use both Raining Tilly and Sunshine Tilly.

I couldn't find a stamp or alphas to fit in the space so we decided to hand write it in. I don't like it. Oh well.

Jade got a kick out of putting Glossy Accents on the rain drops. She has been scrapping for a couple of years now with me. And I finally let her use the copics. This was her 5th try and her best so don't scrutinize it too much lol.

And here is the inside or backside:

Thanks for stopping by! Check out the blog for more great sneaks. All of these images being showcased this week will be available on Friday, August 20th!

ISS New Releases

Happy Monday!

Hope you are having a spectacular day. ISS is kicking off their new release sneak peeks and boy do we have some cute stuff coming up. Today we are showcasing an image called Tree Tire.

Here is my scrapbook page I made with it:

This was the first time Jade rolled down the hill. It was hilarious. At first she was scared. But when my hubby showed her how to do it, we couldn't get her to stop. I have about 4 more pages to scrap of that day. We also flew kites and there are also a couple of images of my hubby and Jade rolling down the hill together.

This image will be available on August 20th. Make sure you join us tomorrow for our next preview and for our release party on Friday too.

Thanks for stopping by.

I miss you!

I'm missing my husband. Today I leave for a week without him and it's kinda weird. He won't be home until the 24th of this month. I will miss spending his birthday with him. But he has to work so what am I gonna do? I just told him he is not allowed to go on safari while he is there. :)

So I made this I miss you card. I used Isabel. She is another image that is giving me a hard time trying to add to the store. But hopefully by the time I get back I will have it all squared away.

Have a great week!

Home Sweet Home

I was in the house warming mood. So I decided to make a house warming card. I used our cute house image. We are having an issue adding it to the website hope to have that figured out shortly.

I love greens and browns.

Thanks for stopping by. I leave for Costa Rica tomorrow. I'm so excited!

Friday, August 6, 2010

Just got paid, Friday Night!

Ok well technically I didn't get paid, but it is Friday night! I want to go to the movies and see Charlie St. Cloud. Who wants to come with me? :)

Today I have a card for my cousin who is a hairdresser. I decided to use Lindsay! She is soo sweet.

The sentiment says, "Hair Ya Doin?" Love it! I've been surprising myself by not using ribbon lol. Lindsay is available in rubber and digital.

See you tomorrow!

Have a great weekend!

Thursday, August 5, 2010

Happy Thursday!

I'm counting down the days until I get to go to Costa Rica! It's my first trip out of the country without my husband. He's in Africa on business, I'm going for fun. :)

Anyway, today I have a birthday card. I made 3 of them. This was an extra. I already gave out the 2 for my friend's. They weren't exactly like this, but basically the same.

Here is the front:

I used sweet little Sitting Ava. She is available in rubber and digital.

The outside of the card says, "May your heart be filled with love," and the inside says:

"And your closet be filled with shoes!"

How sweet is that?

Thanks for stopping by!

Blog Hop InStyle!

Thanks for stopping by on your last leg of the blog hop tour. You should have come from Jan If not, please either go back there or start from the beginning...CLICK HERE!

I can't believe our design team. They have really pulled together this month and rocked out a bunch of great projects. I have the bestest design team around. They are truly a great bunch of ladies. I appreciate each and everyone of them. Their such an asset!

We have two of our special ladies leaving us this month. Thank you Jodi and Raquel for making our company shine with your designs! We wish you the best of luck in all your future endeavors. And a special hats off to Raquel. She recently graduated from College! That is a milestone! Great job!

And with those 2 spots open, we had to find other designers to fill their shoes. So on Sunday, August 1st, we will announce our new DT members. Take my word for it, these new ladies are gonna rawk your sawks off! Stay tuned.

So on to the blog hop at hand. I bet you were wondering why there isn't a card or project on my blog. That's because the universe is playing mean tricks on me. Why? Well let me vent a little shall I? Ok it all started when I lost my passport. UGHH! I've been looking for it for over a month. I am going out of the country in August and CAN'T find it anywhere. I'm soo upset about it. I normally have a great memory. But...well...yeah, can't find it anywhere. And on top of it, it's with my birth certificate, marriage license and other important papers. Yikes. Well I had to make an emergency appointment to get a new passport. I leave on the 8th and my appt is on the 3rd. Talk about cutting it close lol. I was able to get my other documents replaced already. I'm just upset about paying for another passport. :(

If that is not bad enough, NOW I can't find my battery charger for my camera. And that means I can't take pictures, which means I couldn't photograph my project I worked on a week ago. My replacement is due here any day now, but *SIGh*.

Well after that vent (thanks for listening), I decided why not tilt the universe in a generous way and give away a free DIGI! :) Yay!

Meet Larissa. Isn't she adorable?

You want her? Here's what you have to do:

1. Blog hop with all the ladies and post a comment here letting me know which designer had your favorite project AND your email address. (make sure you use a space or something so you don't get spam email)

2. Go to the InStyle Stamps Blog and vote for that person!

3. Leave a comment showing some love on the dt member's blog that you voted for.

By doing all 3 steps, you will receive this little cutie on Sunday after our announcements are done and you will a chance to win 4 more digi's of your choice. You will all be winners because you will get this cuite even if you don't win the other 4. :) You have until 8am PST on August 1st to leave your comment here.

This image is not for sale and won't be for sale on our blog. She is exclusively a freebie. A few month's ago we showed 2 of her friends and gave them away:

We will be offering them to those that join our Paper Craft Planet group and our Facebook Fan Page soon. Not only may those be given away, but we have a few more too. So make sure you don't miss them.

Design team members, you guys can participate too. Follow the steps and I will send her to you too.

Thanks for stopping by. Don't forget to go and vote HERE!
