More new projects! :)

I attended a Santa's Workshop crop with Paws on Scrapbooking last saturday! It was an awesome day! I got 2 LO's done... would have done more but i spent the morning trying to find the right place "DUH" and then gave up to do some Christmas Shopping! LOL! I finally made it before noon though! Here are 2 of the LO's I did there, plus one i dod at home! Also here's my Basic Grey Minibook I did for Paws Nov kit! :)

My sweet boy!

I was just visiting the blog of a friend of mine... TraceyT and she had posted a converstation with her 2 yr old. It reminded me of this chat with my 2 1/2 hr old son...
My DD and I had been watching Anne Of Green Gables... she is now a HUGE fan!!

DD says: Mommy, Gilbert Blyth is so beautiful!
Momy: boys aren't beautiful, they are called handsome!
DS: Like me Mommy? I'm handsome?
Mommy: Yes Sammy, like you, you are handsome!!
DS: Thank you Mommy!

I just wanna squeeze him!! LOL!
Thanks Tracey for inspiring me to write this! :)

Check these out!!

As par of the Texas Hold'Em week at Sisterhood of Scrap blog, we were asked to name 3 sites or blogs that inspire us! So here goes!!

*I have recently fallen in love with the scrapping style of Iris Babao Uy! She was recently named one of the MM Masters! Her stuff is gorgeous! Check out her blog!


*Looking for a great sketch? check this site out!!

*And a site with some awesome kits... and an amazing DT... check out www.badgirlskits.com

Hope these sites can bring you some awesome inspiration as they do me!

Technique Tip

Have you ever used corrogated cardboard on a LO? This is my new addiction! It looks so cool! If you like dimention and texture, then you have to try this!
Take a piece of cardboard from a box or whatever... tear off the top layer. Using a tool of your choice,(scissors, tweezers etc) tear the layers between the bumps. Then clean it off and add some paint for texture! Layer under a photo and bang, you have a photo mat that is full of dimention!
Have fun!
