I'm so proud of my little artist

Here's another one of Karla's creations. She is really getting so good at this. She did most of the work on this layout herself. I just helped with some cutting and gluing. The little fingers sometimes struggle with the double sided tape.

When I saw the ribbons behind the sunflower photo my heart nearly burst with pride. Mommy's little artist

Karla's project for the weekend

Karla was in the mood for scrapbooking this weekend. This is one of the layouts she created using some old DCWV papers and the gorgeous new Core'dinations Spotted paper.

The Color Room #85

This baby was my TCR submission for this week. I loved working with these colours and simply couldn't get enough. One of those projects when you're just too excited to stop.

20111127-85her.jpg 20111127-_85_watermelon.jpg The raspberry and fuschia “fan” on the right of the photo was made using the “build-a-flower” die and embossing folder combo by Cuttlebug and the beautiful crocheted flowers were carefully and lovingly hand made by my talented mother. Oh, and the funky sun and clouds are from Leeann Pearce's Etsy shop, The Chip Chop Shop.

Scrapbooking is my life!

Scrapbooking is my life. Okay maybe not my lifeÖ I do have a lot more important things in my life like my family and friends.

But scrapbooking completes me. Okay maybe some other things in my life complete me like my husband and daughter, my faith andÖ well, some other things that I am sure are more important than scrapbooking.

Okay so scrapbooking is not the be all and end all of anything at all but it is my escape, my drug, my therapist and my friend.

Speaking of friends, through scrapbooking I made a new friend at a time when I really needed a friend. Oh my gosh! I really hope nobody reads this. I am so soppy. I am so proud of this friend. It was the cutest thing when she phoned me up at 21:30 because she was so excited that she couldnít wait to tell me she made the Design Team for a scrap challenge blog. It has been both our dreams for a long time to make a Design Team. She has just been working harder at it than me. Once itís official I will post a link so that you can check her out.

So now I have decided to work harder at my goals and making dreams a reality. I have identified my stumbling blocks and have set a few short term goals (basically overcoming the stumbling blocks that are keeping me from reaching my goals).

1. Give my blog a facelift (well, thatís ONE thing I can tick off the list.)
2. Build a light box so that I can take awesome photos of my layouts.
Okay so maybe point no.1 should be to make some awesome layouts to take photos of then
3. Update my blog WEEKLY. Even if there is no new layout to add.
4. Add some more content to my blog. My interests are scrapbooking, photography and music. My projects are about more than just meeting the weekly TCR deadlines.
5. Scrap more and watch less TV.
6. Scrap more and surf less internet.
7. Read more and watch less TV.
8. Read more and surf less internet.
9. Scrap more with Karla. She loves it and the one on one time is amazing!
10. Start joining in on or more challenges.
11. Start applying for Design Teams.

Well, thatís it for now. The rest are long term goals and I donít want to jinx anything.

So hereís to the first of many, Anna. Congratulations on your Creative Team!
