Flocking Powders Extravaganza!

So, finally, it's the day before my surgery. I'm dying right now! lol! I can't eat anything until after the surgery! I'm hungry! Grr! lol! Oh well, let it all be for the best! Thank you all for the prayers! I appreciate it so very much and I can't thank you enough for all the sweetness you all give me!

Today I did some errands and some cleaning. I woke up at 6:30am and did some blog hopping. Then I took a shower, went to Joann's bought some tweezers that I will be returning because I found better ones at Michael's. Then I went to Target to pick up my medication that I need to take (in about an hour). I got some clearanced gift bags and tissue paper (you know you always needs some of that) and I also got some clearanced Easter Stickers. Which is funny because little do they know I will BARELY be scrapping my Easter pictures! HAHAHA! Jokes on them! After that I went to Burlington Coat Factory (met my mom there) and then to MJM Shoes, where my mom got me some AWESOME shoes. After that we went our seperate ways. I went to Beverly's (found nothing there) and then I went to Michael's! There I found an amazing sale! I found the Martha Stewart Flocking Powder for $1.99!!!! Yup! Normally $5! Can you believe it!?!? So of course I got ALL the colors available!

All 11 colors and my new Making Memories Tweezers!
After that I came home did some chores around the house and rested. Now I'm starving!! Grr! I have to stop thinking about it. I was able to scrap a little (to get my mind off things) Here's what I made:

Yes, the leaves are covered in my new Flocking Powder!
Well, thanks for stopping by! Tomorrow is the big day! I will be taking my laptop with me! So I hope to see your stuff from the hospital. God Bless!

Happy Scrapping!

Good Morning!

Hello All! Good Morning! How is everyone doing? Well, I was up and early this morning.. I couldn't sleep. So I decided to make a card for a birthday in June. I wanted to make it with one of my cricut cartridges and I found the perfect image for it! I hope the person that I made it for likes it!

I love Disney and I really want to work more with these fun carts I have already (although, I want to buy more!) Thanks for stopping by!

P.S. I want to say Happy Birthday to my wonderful father-in-law, Roger. Thank you for everything you do for us. And I pray that you have many more happy and healthy years to come. (My in-laws are great! And I'm not just saying that, I mean it!)

Happy Scrapping!

Hey everyone Check out Melissa's Blog Candy Give-Away over at her Blog, Disney Dream Designs!

Playing with my Cricut

I've been having a blast with my Cricut and I missed it so much! I made some fun cards working with some of the carts. I played with Cricut Cake Holiday Cakes and with Disney Mickey and Friends. Oh, seriously, HOW FUN! Here's what I created (please disregards the imperfections, after I took the picture I noticed them and went back and cleaned them up a little more):

This is from the Holiday Cakes Cartiridge. My husband added the extra fin so it can look like a 1959 Chevy Impala that his Dad and Him own (this is for his dad's bday).

Happy Monday!

Goodness! Today was busy... I ran around doing errands! The thing is I just have until Thursday to get everything done before the surgery. Because who knows how long I won't be able to do the stuff I need to do.

I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter! I sure did! Here are some pictures I took:

The delicious food! It was just oh so good!

Once again being himself! I love that he makes me smile! He said the dinner roll wanted it's picture taken too! lol!

I was able to scrap yesterday. I worked on my Mother's day Cards for my mom:

and for some family members:

Today is also my parent's 30th wedding anniversary! So I made them a card last night. I really enjoyed making it. I'm just so proud of both my parents and my in-laws they are about a year apart in wedding anniversaries but they are such a wonderful inspiration for us. I hope that our marriage is as loving and devoted as theirs!

That's it for now! I hope you all are tuned in tonight for the HSN launch of the E2! 10pm Pacific Time!

Loving this Scrapmojo!

I've been scrapping up a storm! I was able to spend some time with a friend, cook dinner, clean house, do all the laundry, go grocery shopping, spend time with my hubby and parents, scrap, and now even BLOG! What a busy and productive day! Here are some of the 2 pagers I did!

Now, I'm off to bed! I'm really tired, and I just noticed it! I can't wait for tomorrow I hope my scrapmojo continues. I hope that it rubs off on some of you ladies that have mentioned that you need a little mojo sent your way! ;o)

God bless and Happy Scrapping!

Whoa Whoa Whoa!

I'm on FIRE! I can't believe how much scrapping I have been doing! Not only that... I just realized I bought FOUR cartridges THIS MONTH ALONE! That's way too crazy for me.. I mean I know I'm obsessed and all... and I know I'm a shopaholic, but WHOA! Hehehehe! I guess I shouldn't complain! I got a new cartridge today (I got the Gingerbread and the Luau early this month and the Cricut Cake Holiday Cartridge a couple of days ago and I'm still waiting to arrive). I got the April Showers Cartridge at Joann's today for 19.99! Can't beat that. I can't wait to use all my carts... the only thing stopping me is that I need a NEW MAT! Grr. Maybe next week! lol! I've spent way too much already!

Anyways, here are some layouts that I want to share out of the many I did today! Yay!

Thanks for stopping by! Wooo Hoooo! The weekend is almost here! Tomorrow is Thursday! Everyone have a wonderful night! God Bless!

Happy Scrapping!

Scrappy Day!

I had my UCSF Pre-Op appointment today. As you all know my next surgery will be on Friday, the 29th! It was a long and informative appointment.. all the risks a surgery can present (blah, blah, blah!) lol! But so far, I'm ready to get one step closer to officially be called an Ovarian Cancer Survivor (aka "IN THE CLEAR!"). It's coming up really close.. after the surgery, just the chemo, and then DONE! Whoop Whoop! So after getting home and resting a little, my hubby and I ate dinner and then cleaned the yard a little and the inside of the house. (I'm slowly unpacking) Then, SCRAPPY TIME! And here's some I was able to do today:

As you can tell, these are all for my Mexico City Album! I'm extremely motivated to finish up this vacation, so I can start on the cruise album! I can't wait!

After I did some scrapping I did some blog hopping! I love all the blogs I follow! You ladies are all so talented! Thank you all for the wonderful inspiration!

For now, that's all! I hope you all had a wonderful Tuesday! We will be half through the week already! I can't believe it! God Bless everyone!

Happy Scrapping!
