Happy Hump Day!!!

Although today didn't really seem like a hump for me because I had Monday off, I am still very happy that I am now home from work.

My sister's birthday was fun...Love seeing my niece and nephew! We played the board game moods...anyone else ever play that? If not you should - we had a blast! One of the favorite moments of the night was when my sister-in-law (SIL) had to read the sentence "I look good in hot pants!" in the mood - joyful. It ended up sounding more like the little girl from the shake-n-bake commercial "It's shake and bake and I helped!" My nephew (who is 15 mo.) took one look at his mom and burst into tears. For those of you who don't know my SIL, she is very quite and reserved. It was quite amusing!

Anywho! I just have one quick share for you tonight before I have to get supper started.

This is a photo that I took at our friends house the day after Christmas. I wanted to share it with you because this is the photo that I adhered to the last page of my December Daily! That's right, February is almost done, and I *still* don't quite have mine done...I am so close though! All I have left is the journaling and getting new binder rings for it and I am done! Yay! Finally!

Before I go, I have one quick question. Anyone know where I can find some 2 or 2.5 inch binder rings? I have looked everytime that I have walked into a store but can't seem to find anything bigger than a 1.5...let me know if you know where I can get one!

Happy night to all!

Happy Valentines Day!

And a very happy birthday shout out to my sister and my friend Kimberly! Hope you both have a wonderful day! Speaking of my sister's birthday, she turnes 21 today! Boy that makes me feel old. (I know, I know...) So I thought I would post a few quick shares to help us celebrate this great day of love.

First I have a photo of the mini album that I made for my sister. I figured with all the celebrating this weekend, she would have alot of photo's. What better way to store them than in a cute mini?

It's actually a small photo album that I have had since I was like 5, I just covered it in PP. I still have to put some ribbon around the edges to cover the paper tear on the top right side. When it tore, my BF asked me what I was going to do now and I told him "It's not a mistake, it's an oppertunity to embellish." He thought it was the funniest thing he ever hear! My co-worker and I found that quote online at a scrapbooking tee store. Anywho.

Now I have a few cards to share with you. This is a simple Valentines Day card that I made folowing an example I saw in the Feb 2009 CK. It's from Becky's Sketch. I simply punched a few circles out of some PP scraps that I had in my scrapbox. Then I diecut the word love using my cricut. The rest of the card I did freehand using a black marker. To make the lines semi-straight (because I am a perfectionist) I used a ruler to show me what a straight line would be, then drew it freehand next to the ruler.

Easy peasy, and it would be very easy to adapt this card to match any occasion!

This next card is another really simple card using the George and the Jasmine cartridges for the cricut.

I would like to thank all of you ladies for your lovely comments on yesterday's card! It was so nice to come home from work yesterday and see that my blog does get visitors! It honestly is one of my favorite simple cards - I am so glad that you liked it too! Hope you have a safe and wonderful valentines day!

It's been awhile...

and for that I am sorry. You know how it goes. I guess right before the holidays was not the best time for me to try to start a blog, huh? Oh well. One of my goals for 2009 is to blog more often. Even if it's a simple share every few days, that counts, right? Well, in the spirit of that, I would like to share a little something with you.

This is a card that I made to enter into the PCMag's Gallery Idol last year. I didn't get into the finals, but my goal last year was just to try and enter. Well, that's it for now!
