It is so hard to believe that today is the last day of September!!

Good Morning!!! One more day and it will be October....October feels like Fall! LOL Can you tell I love this season?? :-) Today's post is short, very busy day today! I have a doctors appointment this afternoon, yuck!

Anyway, here is another scrapbook layout. I am not sure how I feel about this layout. I can imagine if I had a little girl this page would fit her perfectly :-) I hope you like! TFL!!

Scapbook pages....

Good Afternoon!! This past week has been very busy!! I went to Taste of Home Cooking show this past week. Wow! I have been several times, but I always have so much fun! If you get a chance to go....definitely go! The price of the ticket pays for the magazines that you get, plus they always give out lots of great prizes!! A good friend of mine (hey Marsha!!) actually won of the dishes they cooked, it came in a beautiful bowl!!
Work has been keeping me on my toes as well :-) It seems like there is always some kind of drama going on :-) *sigh* only 11 years until retirement!! LOL
I had my first Christmas Stamp A Stack this past friday! We had so much fun even though we were just a small group! I just LOVE making Christmas cards!! I am so looking forward to Christmas!! :-)
Okay, I was actually so tired yesterday. I slept until 11:30!!! I NEVER sleep that late! I was afraid I might be coming down sick, but I guess my body was just trying to get caught up on sleep:-) I even took a nappie around 1:00 and slept for another hour or so! LOL I know I am so sad :-) The good news is I got in the mood to scrapbook! I haven't been able to stop! LOL So definitely stay tuned this week because I have another three layouts to share with you!!
I just LOVE how this scrapbook page turned out! As soon as I seen the scrapbook sketch challenge this week on splitcoast, I just knew I was going to use this set, Winter Post! I am not sure if you can tell but I used clear iridescent ice embossing powder on the ice rink...perfect in real life! If you have any questions just let me know!!
I hope everyone has a blessed day!! Tomorrow I will be posting Frosty Days!!! TFL!!!

Good Morning! It has been awhile! Life has been crazy the past couple of weeks :-) The only stamping I have done is for the a two swaps I am in for the Great Girls Swaps! I just LOVE swapping with them.

Anyway, for today's card I know it isn't a Stampin Up stamp. However, who can pass up Fluffles??? He is such a cutie!! I was lucky when I found this at Michaels several weeks ago and got 40% off to boot! Anyway, I am not sure you can tell, but the used a clear sparkle pen on the ornies and edged all around the ornie cuttlebug embossing folder. Very sparkly in real life.

I hope everyone has a wonderful Monday! Thank you ladies for you kind comments and emails :-)

Happy Tuesday!!!

Good Morning everyone! Well it is back to work for me! Will retirement ever get here?? LOL *sigh* I guess I still have a bit to go....oh well :-)
I just LOVE how this scrapbook layout turned out! Though my pictures do not do it justice! It look a little washed out, not so in real life *sigh* Anyway, I just LOVE this stamp set!! I actually was thinking of Fall when I first picked this stamp set up Sunday. However, I think it fitting for now. I left the space open on the second page for journaling or a second picture. Regardless I just LOVE it!!! Everything just kinda came together, don'tcha just love when that happens??? LOL
Well I better get back to my day! I hope everyone has a wonderful blessed day!! TFL!!
