Birthday Card for Julie

This is a card I made for Julies Bday. I used one of basic grey lines, nestabilities oval scallop die cuts and ribbon from Michael's. I can't remember the stamp at the moment but the chalk ink is chocolate for the edges. To add some bling I added a dot of stickles around the scallop.

Jaclyn Golfing


first week of golf lessons, she is really loving it so of course we took her to get her own set of clubs. She starts her next lesson tomorrow which lasts for the week.

More Sam and Jac

Jaclyn's reaction to her surprise visit from Samantha!

Jaclyn answered the door and it took her about 5 seconds to recognize Samantha, not because she looks different, but she wasn't expecting to see her! And when she did, she said, "Oh my God, Oh my God!" The moment was priceless, I really regret not having it on video but at least I got some pictures. They have not seen each other in over a year. I don't know how I'll outdo myself, that's how good it was!!!

A Day at the Lake

This was last year at Lake Dillon in CO. It was a bit cloudy and cold for fishing. You know, as a mom you have these bright ideas... well I had this vision of taking the girls fishing, wouldn't that be fun??
Well problem #1 with girls, usually have to pack soooo much stuff... you know... JUST IN CASE! So, not only did we have way too much food and drink (I guess I secretly thought we'd get lost and need to survive LOL) WE DIDN'T TAKE FISHING GEAR!!! I guess I thought we could rent??? Silly me... So there we go to the sporting goods store, to buy 4 fishing rods a tackle box, worms, the whole works. So there goes about $150. Oh well, this should be fun. Now we have to go down to the lake from the parking area..... no biggie...... oh crap, we have our cooler which is filled with ice+drinks+munchies= HEAVY! And how about that, I have flip flops on (I wanted minimal tan lines ya know)! Always thinkin' ahead, Marie.
Problem #2, we have to prepare the fishing lines. Oh, wait.... the bait we bought was... um... worms...and oh gosh they are ALIVE!!!!!!! EEW!!!!! Nice going Marie..

8th Grade is Over, I Officially Have a High Schooler!!! EEKS!

So today was last day of middle school for DD. Here is the card I made for her graduation. DH bought her an ipod base so she will quit taking mine and his!!! Was sort of a gift for us too, hehehe! Plus he bought her an itunes gift card. TFL.

Embellishments on "The Hug Says it All"

The Hug Says it All

This is the first 2 page LO of the book. Last summer DD friend came to CO to stay with us for a week to visit. Journaling reads:
left page- "a time to remember, 6/13/2007" (October Afternoon, Remember When stamp set)
right page- "The anticipation leading up to this moment was felt by travelers coming or going. I'm so glad I captured this reunion! It truely is priceless..."

This is the front inside cover of the book. I am actually making two because it is for a friends BDay, but I decided I'd put it off too long to make one for myself.

Birthday Project using Bind it All

This is the front cover for the scrapbook. Funny thing, I read my Scrapbook Etc. I got in the mail today and one of the Q&A's was about best advice or guidance you ever got was, ' there are no mistakes, just room for embellishment', which is how I got to embellish the two clips on the right, I accidentally didn't put the cover all the way into the BIA and it cut just a chip out of the edge. Grr, but it all worked out...

DD before 8th Grade Dance!

My All Nighter Swap hahaha

I was like a hound last night waiting for the new swap to be posted @ CKMB and saw that the host was asking for an extra recipe because someone else was unable to fullfill so I sorta asked if I could do it.... and well, I did it!!! I stayed up til 2:30 in the morning but I do like the way it came out. There was a couple things I would have liked to add, but it meets the requirements and am happy to say I can get this out TODAY!!!

Simple B-Day card

I had forgotten to make a card for my friend and had to do something quick! I used the marvy uchida scallop circle punches, Endless Creations HBD stamp, Yours truly in poppy color card and evelope, dark/hot pink ribbon and I don't know what collection the PP is from. For "blingsake" I put an orange rhinestone to dot the i. Nothin' fancy but I always love pink and orange together!

Another Grad Card

This is a grad card for my cousin Rebecca who graduates from UNM with a degree in Science and Chemistry.

Graduation Card

Here is a graduation card I did last week for our friends son. You can't see the glitter much on the pp on the hats, but it tied in nicely with the teal foil paper I matted the stamp onto.

Grandma's Birthday Card

This is a birthday card I made for my grandma, she turned 76 on Saturday. I used Basic Grey's "Two Scoops" pp and Hero Arts "Cupcakes" clear stamp sets

My Cheer Girl

This is Angelica a couple years ago at our old gym. We don't go to that gym now, but I love the layout colors and how it all worked together.
Ok, I really have to stop playing with this blog now! I am going out of town today and I have not packed a thing!!! I'll have withdrawals of my new toy.
I'll catch up with you all Monday evening when I get home.

Sleeping Beauty

This is a layout of Jaclyn. I finally used this picture that I love. Journaling reads:
"As I watched you sleep, I stood and stared. I was so intoxicated by your porcelain face. So pale, so soft and flawless. In this moment of peace, you took my breath away. I take one last look as I turn out your light. I smile, close my eyes, as to trap this moment in my head. I turn away and I know I have a beautiful life because you are part of it... good night...

My First Blog EVER!!!

Hi! This is my very first blog. I have tried myspace but I really think I like the idea of blogging better! So here it goes, let's give it a try!!!
My name is Marie, and this is the view I have from my scrap room! I'd love no houses in the view, but hey, I live in the suburbs!!! So when I swing my chair around to take a break from scrapping, or now blogging hehehe ;)~ this is the view I get!!!

These are my daughters, Jaclyn (close up), and Angelica (pronounced Anhelica) (tongue to pole). Jaclyn is finishing up the 4th grade while Angelica is finishing middle school. She made the varsity team at Grandview high school which she is REALLY excited about!!! I'll post some video of her awesome tumbling when I get some uploaded. Jaclyn loves to create and try new things. She has done after-school science clubs all year long and rode horses for a while. I think she wants to try volleyball next.
That is my husband John in the top, we've been married for over 14 years. Typical guy, he's a sports nut, golfer, poker enthusiast, great dad, and well.... he's my guy!! Hope you enjoyed my first blog. It was fun...
