Happy Birthday Mom!

Happy Birthday to a very special mom!  This is the card I made earlier this week and had so much fun with!  I love trying out new product and on this one I tried out my new paper piercing mat and plastic.  I love the variety of shapes that you get with this.  I used it around the decorative label punch just to give it a little more to it.  Colours are Midnight Muse, Summer Starfruit, Very Vanilla and Comfort Cafe DSP.  Add a little Soft Suede ribbon and voila!  The flower was made with my new framelits set, also another new product that I love!  Anywho, home with a sick Kayla today, was Hannah's turn Monday and now Kayla's turn, hopefully we get it all out of our systems before school starts!  Yikes!  Thanks for stopping by :) Steph

Ahhhhh...I love Sundays :)

Oh how I love a lazy Sunday, and that`s exactly what we`re having!  We were up at 7am and outside before the heat came.  Planted some mums. started project `clean up pond` area, then in for breakfast, coffee at aunties, and home for lunch and afternoon matinee!  I am SOOO happy I am so close to having my Cuba album done, I`ll definitely have it done in time to get the 31% off, which is AWESOME, I just have to do some editing and quick journalling.  I`ve also managed to open some new items that I have had since June (this never happens, I ALWAYS open items when I get them) but our renos seemed to take up ALL our time!  So yesterday me and the girls went and spent some much needed and overdue craft time :)  I made a special someone a special birthday card, which I can`t post just yet, it will be up by the end of the week :)  SO back to today`s post, this is s page from my Cuba book, this is Arlent one of the bartenders at the resort we went to.  He made the best Chocolate Monkey`s ever, I think its safe to say we visited him nightly!  And sometimes a couple of times :)  Anywho, this page was super easy, Lucky Limeade background, splatter with Early Espresso, some punched out Circles with Comfort Cafe DSP and the monkey from Nursery Alphabet.  Super easy!  k, off to clean the kitchen, thanks for stopping by!  Steph

MDS 2, I love you!

I just downloaded the MDS 2 and I can't believe how awesome it is!  It has so many awesome new things and SUPER easy to use :)  I whipped this page up in minutes by using one of their calendar template pages.  If you have MDS I HIGHLY recommend getting the upgrade!  This is a quick post today, off to do some laundry and relax, been a crazy couple of weeks.  Thanks for stopping by and be back soon :) Steph

Life is Good!

What can I say?  I TOTALLY jinxed myself in June by getting ahead of myself with my MDS class!  We literally spent most of July renovating our house to put it on the market.  It was ALOT of work and I couldn't even think of scrapbooking!  But we got it all done with the help of some really good friends and family (you know who you are :)  THEN off to Timmins we went for Aaron's parents 40th Wedding Anniversary.  Now Aaron, me and the girls are at the Best Western Muskoka, girls are asleep and we're sitting at the table with both our laptops!  For the first time in a month we're having ME time...I love it!  I'm MDS'ing like crazy to get my albums ready to print before the 31st of August...why??? 31% OFF !!! YAY!  Love you Stampin'Up!  So this is right from our trip, a boat ride with Grandpa Glen...and to save time I'm just using the Sunny Day template (it's 12x12 but I'm shrinking the book to 8x8).  So back to work I go!  Thanks to ALL of you who keep stopping by, fingers crossed, the rest of August should be better :)  Take care!  Steph
