I've thought and thought about what I'm trying to get with this blog. A place to link to challenges for both cards and scrapbooking. To document little stories for my kids? To display my to-do projects that I actually "do" (from all the time spent in blogland and now pinterest?)

So my conclusion is to maybe do it all. Especially since I'm not very active :( But I could become more so because of it.

That is, after the cruise we're going on. Leaving to Florida Friday. We'll be back next Sat. Will be an enjoyable vacation without kids. Taking M of course. Maybe I'll post pictures. just no promises..I CAN'T WAIT!!!

Ava is 4 days. (in this page anyways)

I will need to learn how to do this. Take pictures and make them look proportionate. (is that a word?) Anyways, here's a page I did at the beginning of the month. I subscribed to Studio Calico's monthly kit. And so far I've done a few pages. It really has helped me make more pages.

What I love:
Items are coordinated.
I don't have to take 4 kids to a local scrapping store.(although I love to buy local or try. It's just that online is so convenient and it's fun to get packages. You know. That guy in brown..something about the packages he brings.)
Online forum has people who understand an obsession  hobby. Interest in the same things.
Helps to document the small things that happen in the day-to-day.

more time needed. So this time for the blog..Not really sure when I'll do it. Going to try to be more faithful. trying to see what should go where. ORGANIZE!
Can't think of others. 

I will try to take better pictures(or just any picture) to have an online document of the pages. Maybe when I'm 70, (if I can see that is) I will love that I did this. We will see. Already getting ahead of myself.

Papertrey Sketch #1/pages with papertrey #1

Here's my take on the sketch for September. This is my 3rd scrapbook page-and my daughter shown here is 4.5!! photos are from when she was 2 months old. :)

I also used a PTI die(FF #4) and stamp(journaling lines) although you cant really see the lines in photos, so am using it for pages with papertrey too.

Thanks for looking!!

Papertrey Ink September 2011 Blog Hop Challenge

This photo is from Papertrey Ink and is their picture for Sept 2011 Blog Hop.

This is my first time participating in any kind of Challenge. Here's my card which is inspired by  the photo from PTI for the challenge this month.

Items used:

Rhinestones:colorbox(joanns), premade card base: michaels

Of course, when I make cards, I usually think stripes as horizontal, and this time, they turned out vertical. That's a nice change!
