Sweet Kits...

are up and available over at Sweet Peach Crop Shop, both kits are simply divine. I get to work with the Juicy Kit which is just right up my alley. The colors and papers are my style. I also got an email from Corrie the owner asking if I would like to be a Juicy Girl and I said yes. Meaning I will work with the Sweet Peach Crop Shop's Juicy Kit's.

It's Official...

I am addicted to challenges, I can't stop. It does not matter if there is prizes or not. It is the thrill of the whole deadline, seeing if my name will get picked, etc... I know I am out of my mind. It keeps me busy.
For this first layout I did it is for Sketchy Thursday, this is my daughter and her husband over Christmas in Hawaii...Lucky dogs them.
Next is a card for Sketches In Thyme
Lastly is another layout from my Dad's birthday party from last year, I have yet to see my Dad this month to give him his Birthday present :( Things have been so busy. This was done for The Paper Variety
Well off to work on some more things have a great day.

Day 4 of The New Year...

and I am still creating, I kinda like this. Hopefully the projects will continue. For this layout I used a sketch over at Creative Scrappers and over at Paper Niche their new challenge for the new year was to create a page on Birthdays. This was a picture of my Dad from his surprise dinner last year when he turned the big "60"

Day 3 of the New Year....

Well it is day 3 of the New Year and I have continued my scrapping. There is this new challenge blog called Bird is the Word and for this round the word is Believe. I used a picture of my Dad and his wife and his new found love, I chose this picture because after many years of bad marriage I do believe this is the perfect one for him.

Day 2 of the New Year....

and I am chugging along here. I spent some time creating today while watching some football and now I am going to get ready to watch the Rams play the Seahawks. Here is another idea of what you can do with the Sweet Peach Crop Shop Juicy kit. For this card I also recycled some and used the packaging from the Jillibean Soup corrugated shapes that are in the kit. I also did a little shopping New Years Eve at a local store and they were having a that. I walked out of there with scrapbook items totalling over $100.00 and I got it all for $64.00 I have had my eye on We R Memory Keepers Merry January line and .....I bought it. Here is one layout I have made with it so far. I used the sketch over at Sketches in Thyme this week for this.

Thanks for looking and will share more tomorrow.

Welcome 2011...

As they say out with the old and in with the new. I'm not one to make New Years resolutions. I am not good with sticking to diets and exercise. I however for a couple of years now have jumped on the One Little Word wagon along with many other people and have chosen One Little Word from Ali Edwards and I try to stick with that word that I have chosen for the entire year. The word I have chose for this year is....TENACIOUS
Definition of TENACIOUS
1a : not easily pulled apart : cohesive b : tending to adhere or cling especially to another substance
2a : persistent in maintaining, adhering to, or seeking something valued or desired
b : retentive
— te·na·ci·ous·ly adverb
— te·na·cious·ness noun
Now that it is Jan, 1st 2011 I will show you one page I have done for
Sweet Peach Crop Shop using the Juicy kit.
I also used a Page Maps sketch for this layout.
