Got Pudding

So, I'm kinda out of my scrapbooking funk. I've done a couple of pages in the last few days, but that was probably because I didn't have to work, and the fact that I have some awesome pics from our San Diego visit with family that I want to get done.

This LO was from a sketch by my friend Tanisha over at The Shoe (If the Shoe Fits...Scrap It blog). Of course I modified it to come up with this particular setup and also by making it an 8x8 page instead of my normal 12x12. I will be sending it as a gift to my dear SIL for my niece's birthday present and then I think I'm going to do the same LO and use it in a calendar I plan on making my MIL for Christmas.

So here's the story behind the LO: We (my girls, my 2 SIL's, my 4 nephews and 1 niece) were at Coronado Beach, CA having a day of togetherness....we hadn't seen each other in 4 years!! Well, we had brought some pudding for the kids to snack on but we forgot to bring spoons!! That didn't stop my almost 2-year old niece from eating hers, as you can see. That pudding on her face (I know, you can't really see it in this pic) was priceless!! She is just too adorable for words!

Here is a menu of items I used:

DCWV cardstock (brown and blue)
DCWV Tahiti stack (PP)
Recollections flowers
CTMH pendant (it says "Cherish")
K&Company Recycled chipboard
Gelly Roll glaze pen (white)
Unknown brads
Unknown tassel

Thanks for stopping by to check out my blog! Head on over to see my friends at The Shoe, they would love to have you!!

Until next time!

Twilight update and Beach Bums LO

So it's been a LONG time since my last post. Of course, I've finished reading all the "Twilight" series books (over and over again) and am counting down the days until "New Moon" the movie comes out. In the meantime, my daughters and I had the pleasure of meeting Peter Facinelli (who plays Dr. Carlisle Cullen in the movies) during the summer. He was such a nice guy and he even gave blood at the American Red Cross Blood drive he was there to support. Here are some pics of the event:

Ok, so enough about "Twilight"....well for now anyway LOL!! Here is a LO I did of our vacation to San Diego over the summer. I still have TONS of pics to scrap, but this one is a favorite of mine. This is of my girls, my niece and my 4 nephews at Coronado Beach, CA.

Supplies used:
DCWV Cardstock (Black & Red)
DCWV Tahiti stack (striped pp)
DCWV Vellum quote "We do not inherit the Earth from our ancestors; we borrow it from our children"
Cricut homemade flowers
Kaiser Bling gems
CTMH alphabet stickers (Bums)
Thickers alphabet & accents stickers (beach & swirls)
Joann's tag (for hidden journaling)

Hopefully I will be able to scrap some more tomorrow & Monday since I do not have to work. If so, I will definitely be posting them.
Thanks for stopping by! It's off to work I go now!
