I don't know about all of you out there but I am having a very hard time getting into this book. I have read more then half way and now and it is just getting to be a better read. One thing I really regret doing is actually watching the movie before reading the book and I know it is a big No No to do that. I bought the hard cover of the full series and swore to myself I will not watch the movie before finishing all the books. I really want to see for myself if it really is worth the big Hype that every young women is going nuts about. I don't know if I mentioned it before but I am a fool for romance novels, and movies.
My all time favorite has got to be the Notebook. I read the book and also watched the movie and I enjoyed it tremendously. I will keep you posted on how I am making out with Twilight, hopefully I will finish it tonight. But if you are looking for a sweet romance novel, give the Notebook a try by Nicholas Sparks who is also the author of Nights in Rodanthe.

Isn't this Lamb stamp the cutest ever. I really like the way this card turned out cause if the color tones. I colored her with the prisma pencil crayons and mineral spirits and of course I used Stamping Bella's best paper to stamp the image on.
I stopped by at Michaels today and headed straight to the clearance aisle. I picked up 5 stacks of paper ranging from cosmo cricket, DWVC paper, and of course K & Company. The price was a steal I paid $ 6.00 a stack, sweet isn't it.
I have more cards to share with you all, soon to be posted...

Here is a shot at making my very first easel card. I saw this on split coast stampers and thought it was very simple and cute to make. This is a 41/4 square card and the paper is K & Co. If you would like a step by step instructions on how to make your very own easel card please see the video below.

Hello Everyone, just sending this quick post to let you know that I do still exist. My home has under gone a face lift as I mentioned in my previous post. All the bedroom floors are now hardwood and they look smashing. My husband and I spent the entire day putting together my daughters room. We bought her a bedroom set from Ikea and of course had to build everything from scratch, but it was all worth it cause her room looks awesome. I was telling her that my room was not even close to what she has when I was growing up.
My craft room looks terrific as well, we bought a big bookshelf from Costco to store all my crafts, papers and tools. I have accumulated so much over the years that I needed a whole room for this hobby. In addition to all of this my husband surprised me with the cricut expression, you should have seen my excitement cause now I can make bigger cuts and finally I can enjoy Tags, bags, boxes and more also the Wild Card Cartridge. Once I have everything completely settled and cleaned I will share some photos.
Sorry for not posting anything crafty but I did make some more new cards to share so stick around, I will be back....

I know it is way past the halloween season but I actually forgot to post these two pages. These are actually from 2007 because I haven't even gotten around to developing the photos from this year.
For the first layout I used the paper dolls cartridge to cut out the witch hat and the black cat. The second page was actually really quick to do because I bought the paper pre made so all I did was just place the photos in the squares and ass some stickers and voila.
