Strictly Scrappy Post

Ok, I do have some cute Riley stories, but I have quite a few new LOs to post so I'll save those for later :)  I also have to get permission from someone to tell one for fear of offending the person, lol!

Here are a couple more DT projects for Scrap That! 

An altered canvas...I just loved this piece of chipboard so I made it into a fun wall hanging.  I embellished it with stickles and glossy accents, but that's kind of hard to see in this pic.

Cards aren't really my thing, but I thought this one was kind of cute.  Just a simple little card...just because :)

This pic of B just makes me giggle :)

I really enjoyed working with my first DT kit! The colours in the papers and embellies are so vibrant and fun to work with! I can't wait to see what we get to play with next month!

Here are some LOs that I did at the crop last weekend: 

This was done using this weeks Sketch DT  sketch at Paws.  Great sketch, Sandi!!  The jouranling reads: 

makes me smile, frustrates me, has the best blue eyes, is a great big bro and helper (when he wants to be!), loves to learn and read, is smart as a whip, makes me laugh, makes me cry, gets bigger everyday, loves to be outside, loves preschool and can't wait to start "big" school, makes me proud, eats and eats and eats!, loves to play computer and Wii (and picked them up so fast!), will make his mark on this world, will always be my baby, is my everything!

This LO was also chosen as LOTD yesterday over at Treasured Scrapbooking :)  I was tickled to be picked again.  The girls there are so fantastic...a great place to hang out! And tons of inspiration in the gallery so go check it out!! 

My girly equivalent of Riley's LO.  This LO was done using the April sketch by Laurajean at Treasured Scrapbooking.  I had a great jump off point with that sketch.  I love all the bling and the two toned stitching (a fun technique :)).  I added some stickles to these flowers (thanks to Amanda for all her inspiration!).

Journaling reads: 
melts my heart, makes me laugh, is stubborn, will be walking soon, is growing way too fast, gives the best hugs and kisses, loves her brothers, is a tough cookie, "bops" to music, keeps me up at night, will win hearts and change the world, is my whole world!

(Yes, I am going to do one for Kieran too...don't worry about my middle child, I'm taking care of him!).

I have one more LO that I would like to post but it has a pic that isn't one of my kids so I just want to check with the parents first to make sure it's ok with them.  It's a cute one though :)

My last piece of news is that I am now officially a Stampin' Up demonstrator.  I haven't received my kit yet so I won't be hosting any parties or anything for a few weeks, but I'm all set up otherwise.  So, just come to me for all your stamping needs, haha :)  I'll probably be having an open house toward the end of May so I'll keep you posted!

Ok...I have cursed my computer enough for one day (it really hasn't been agreeing with me!!) so I'll get those funny stories to you soon :)
