...WARNING....rated R post..cover young eyes:) I earlier said about how I went away, and I was able to finish only one layout last weekend. Well without further ado, here is the layout.

Now as I was taking the photos of this layout, Hadley had to take a peak. So what do you think comes out of her 3 year old mouth..."mommy, you have hot boobies" with mouth gaped open, turning away from her smiling face, I imediately go to the phone and talk with John. His response to this all..."what, I might think that, but do not say it around her" where does this child come up with things like this. Last week she called me a sexy baby. John must be saying things and not realizing it, because whenever she is awke there is nothing on but cartoons or the shows like hannah montana, suite life or i carly...and I am pretty sure they are not saying things like that on there.
Well that is all for tonight..I am soo tired, and really hope I can sleep in in the morning...crosing fingers.

Thursday, September 25, 2008 round 3 submission

Okay, so I finally finished my lo for round 3 over at bad girls. I was not having a problem with the assignment itself...of less is more...for that is right up my alley. It was trying to keep Hadley away for a moment. As soon as I snuck away to try and work on it, she was quickly at my feet asking what I am doing. She is so different from Ab. Ab could just go play on her own for hours..and really did not care about my scrap supplies. Where as Hadley loves to get into my supplies. On Friday she emptied 5 of my stickles and then a little while later she painted my walls and floor with black crackle paint....ughhh....

Ok so here is my lo...I am quite happy how it has turned out.

gotta run...need to go meet Ab from school.

....round 3, busy weekend, new blog

....phew...a wee has happened since last week. I have now made into round 3 over at the bad girls site for Top Designer contest. This weeks class assignment is right up my alley. It is all about simplicity, with minimal embellishments and just the right amount of white space. I must admit I love doing these kinds of layouts.

...this past weekend I was able to join everyone at Navcan for a little scrapping. I took Marlene's place since she could not show up. I went there for Saturday afternoon. Once there I unpacked the car and then realized I ompletely forgot my laptop, which had all my photo's I was going to print out while there to scrap. I did fortunately bring a few photo's with me(one's I really were not too into scrapping) so I was able to get one lo finished. It is a wee bit is of the ya-ya trip to sexapalooza...I will post later on. I was also able to do a few paintings(which I will get back to in a second). So Saturday night became a night of drinking and just having fun with the girls, with scrapping put on the side burner. It was a fun time and well just a wee bit tiring(not as young as I use to be;) ). onto the new blog. I am slowly getting up my new blog to start selling all my handmade items for scrapbooking and home decor. That is where the paintings come into play. I saw a neat type of painting on etsy and though..oh It is whimical acrylic paintings on some vintage book pages. They were well liked by the ladies this weekend. I also sold 2 of my felt embellishments to the girls on the weekend. The new blog is
I still have to upload things to the store and such, but hopefully by the end of the month everything will be set to go.

well must run and eat...l8r

Made it to round 2.... I made into into round 2 over at bad girls. The challenge this week was to mix at least 2 different pattern papers. This is a fairly big challenge for me. Things finally came together for me today(which was hard with Hadley trying to get into everything in my room) and I am quite happy with how things turned out. The photo of the lo is not as clear as I would like...but hey...I just wanted to get it taken and post my assignment. Here is hoping I make it into the next round:)

It's my baby's birthday....

...this morning as she slept, she turned 3:) And I am such a horrible mommy because I just remembered at this very moment that today was her birthday. She celebrated her day on Saturday. Unfortunately I have no blowing out candles photos. She blew it out before I could get the camera, and then the poor thing went and grabbed a sparkler off the cake and burned her thumb and finger:( So she really did not want to blow out the candle again. She did pretend to blow out the candle for a few pics though...what a trooper I tell you!!

My entry for Top designer at Bad girls...

So this is what I sumbitted for the first round of Top Designer. I am not really happy with it, but I do not have time to do another lo. I need to finish the housework and get ready for Hadley's birthday tommorrow. The challenge for this round was all about layering. We had to layer at least 2 different things. I layered my paper, photos, and embellishments. There are a lot of great layouts submitted thus far, so we will see how things go this round:)

So I was getting a wee bit bored with my blog I decided to change things up a bit with it....I am quitting for now, but will do more changes later on. So I was able to scrapbook last has been many months since I did it. i even actually finished the lo and have it to share. I am ok with it....mind you it totally did not turn out how I planned to do it from the start. I decided to do it on a piece of cardboard instead of cardstock. It definitely makes it alot more stable.

So I have yet to taken any pics of the new place inside..horrible I know...when I finally think about doing it, the house is once again destroyed. I will try to do this week once I get things cleaned for Hadley's birthday.....either that, or Katie, you will just have to come and see it IRL:)

So Ab finished her first week of school with no hiccups. The house is definitely more calm now during the day:) We went to the local fair on Friday, but there are no pics since mom was riding the rides also. It was all good until I went on the scrambler....god I thought I was going to puke...and then we went straight to these twirling penguins where it was so dang hot in I could barely breathe...that ride was the quicker for my nausea...I defintely know not to eat pizza and wings before riding those type of rides again...uckkk.

So not too much else here for now..hopefully I will have another lo to post in a day or two also:)
