Crafty Monday!

Today, I woke up bright and early and was glad to be alive! Like I mentioned before life for me is viewed WAY differently than before this Cancer stuff. God does have plans. I think this was a great way for him to make me realize the important things in life and not take it for granted. And I'm thankful for EVERYTHING he has blessed me and everyone with. Good and Bad. Everything that has happened to us, good or bad, is what makes us, us. We are defined by those bad and good moments. God is amazing like that.


Today is also our 3rd anniversary here at our home! We never in this world thought we would have such a lovely home at our young age of 23 (back in 2008). Who would be crazy enough to buy a home at 23, worth $250,000!?!?! I know I alone couldn't. I know if for a FACT. And it's all thanks to my wonderful husband who knows how to keep our finances in check and be able to afford the things we need and have. Now, unfortunately our home is only worth somewhere in the area of $165k... but I'm ok with that. We have a fixed rate and do not mind staying here for a VERY LONG TIME. God is amazing. (Have I said that already? hehe)


I got to scrap A LOT TODAY! I mean A LOT! I did some cards. One of them (Title: Smile) was a lift of Luzma! Luzma's Scrap Place is fab! You should really check her out! I love all her work! I've loved it ever since I joined SB.COM back in January of 2009. She has amazing work! Here's the cards I came up with:


















Then as I was blog hopping, I was over at Cristi's Scrappin' 5 Little Cupcake's Blog, and she had a previous project she made. It's this adorable mini album (you should really check it out). She said that Momo had a tutorial... therefore I SOOOOO had to go check it out. Made By Momo is an adorable blog by another talented lady! Please check her out. She did her album cut out's with her Cricut, I decided to copy her using old empty soda packs. I free handed my cuts though. I didn't use my cricut. Here is my creation that I made for my hubby:


































Thanks for stopping by. And remember... I'm always here checking out your inspirational work. Like Kristal over at Getting Cricky with K Andrew said, blog for you! :o) Love you all! Now off to finish the dinner! Ekk!


Happy Scrapping!

Please tell me you didn't do all these wonderful cards and projects in one day. Love them all, but I'm partial to the clocks....super and the flowers are beautifl....I've never done one of the books but really want too. Our house is finally paid for...I'm older than you...haha Our house is depreciated too but ALL houses have and yes, I'm glad for my husband thinking ahead too and staying with a fixed interest even though it wasn't the greatest.
