Happy Sunday everyone! I know I ask almost every week but really where does the time go?? Next weekend is the 4th of July already. When you have a chance go over and say hi to the creative girls at Sunday Scrappin, the host Amy is a wonderful.
Here is the original page Disney Statues when I was done I wasn't happy with it so I added one small detail to the page and I was happy with here Disney Statues Redo
Time to Grill card
Cheers to you birthday card
Put on your party hat birthday card
Just Bee-Cause card
Last weeks challenge on Sunday Scrappin was to do something sparkly. I did make something but I can't post it. I made my sister her birthday card but I can not post it until after her birthday (July 6). She is a nosey little girl, she keeps spying on my blog in hopes to get a peek at her card (sorry Kay, you'll have to wait until I give it to you).
Keep taking part in various challenges. These challenges are a great way to get some cards done ahead of time and a great way to think outside of the box and make things you normally wouldn't have done.
I'm waiting for my paper packet to arrive from Joanns (ordered online) should be here the end of the week so I can work on a layout.
I have a layout idea to make of our son Dylan but its just a matter of getting the strength up to create the page. I have a difficulty time making his pages because I want them to be special and perfect. And it seems no matter what I do with his album it's just not good enough. We'll see, this one may be on the To Do list for awhile.
This weeks Sunday Scrappin Challenge is in honor of the 4th of July holiday: something patriotic. Your project can be red, white and blue, or include a flag, or be a military layout, or include anything else that feels patriotic to you.

(Can't raise my right hand - I type with that hand- sorry). I Christina swear that I will not buy another piece of scrapbooking paper the rest of the summer with the exception of possibly needing princess themed paper to make my nieces birthday card and with an exception I need to buy baby girl themed paper to make my coworker Kathy's daughter a scrapbook (my coworker Mary and I are working on this project together and we need to get busy) I only have boy themed items . For everything else I will use the paper that I have on hand already to make all of my cards and layouts regardless of how pretty, how perfect it would be for a page or card, and regardless of of it being on sale or clearance. Instead if I need to buy anything I will concentrate more on my stamps and other supplies (ribbon, embossing powders, ink etc).
For the record earlier today I ordered a DCWV Summer Paper Packet from Joann.com (180 sheets of paper). This will be my last paper order for the summer. And yes Jeff there you go you have it in writing and can use it against me.
Next week I'm off from work for several days and I think I may go through my paper and weed at the ones I will never use. Anyone interested in a paper swap once I go through it. I will give you "X" amount of various themed paper for "X" amount of your choice themed paper. This way we can trade out what we won't use and still get new (which will feed paper addiction LOL). If your interested leave me a message on this post or email me. If you have a different idea I'm open for suggestions.

It's time for Sunday Scrappin Time. I am very proud of myself I am starting to take part in more challenges. Now at Sunday Scrappin instead of a question being asked each week Amy is giving us all a challenge, what fun!! I can't brag enough about all the wonderful ladies I have met through that group and they are all so creative.

I really don't have any goals this week. The SBS18 Challenge Blog comes out with new challenges each wedenesday so I will like to take part in this weeks challenge again. The PaperTake Challenge Blog comes out with new Challenges on Monday so I'll like to take part in that challenge also. I have to get ink for my printer one of these days so I can get to making some scrapbooking pages. I have an idea for my MIL birthday card that I will work on. And I have to think of a card idea for my sister who is turning 13 (any ideas).
This weeks Sunday Scrappin Challenge is to an animal or an animal print in your project. I'm lovin this!!!!!!!!!!

I have been tagged by Annie.
The "rules" of the game:Each player answers the questions about themselves. At the end of the post, the player then tags 5-6 people and posts their names, then goes to their blogs and leaves them a comment, letting them know they’ve been tagged and asking them to read your blog. Let the person who tagged you know when you’ve posted your answer.
Ten years ago:

I missed Sunday Scrappin last week because we were in CT. This week I'm back into the swing of things. If you haven't already you must go and check out Sunday Scrappin I have met some friendly and talented ladies through that group.
Happy Hellos Card
Cupcake Bella Card
Mom's Birthday Card
I really don't have anything planned to work on for the week. I have to get ink for my printer so I can work on the scrapbook pages from when we went to CT.
I would like to come up with an idea for a card that is not a traditional fold that includes the colors Pink, Red, White and Black. This is a challenge on another group and I'm having a hard time throwing pink into the mix. I'm still thinking of something though........
Another challenge is for the Sunday Scrappin group this week's challenge is to use lace. Hmmm.... I don't think I own any lace or ever even used lace on anything before. Hmmmmm......
