I'm having a pretty good week! I logged on this morning and found out that I won the Clearly Yours challenge at Dreamgirls!!!! I'm SO stoked!!! This is the layout that won:
Also, I DID get to finish quite a few of the challenges I wanted to do last week:
This one is for Gutter Girlz. The challenge was easy because I immediately thought of how I feel when people tell me how much weight I've gained...as if I didn't ALREADY KNOW, IDIOT!!!
I got two done for challenges over at Tally Scrapper (LOVE those peeps!!!). This first one is for the Survivor group I'm in (and hopefully I STAY in for the duration this time!) I scrapped about my "new" look...scarves and hats! This going natural process is just taking SO long! The second challenge at Tally was to scrap about something that gives you butterflies but it couldn't be a man or woman...so I chose LITTLE men and women!!! I love babies SO much...I don't know if I love 'em enough to give hubbs another as he's requesting but that's a post for another day!
I finished a layout for the joint challenge Category Stories and Tally are having. The challenge was to scrap something you love. BAY BAY!!!!! Next to God and my guys, I love me some FREE ME TIME!!!! I DID get some Sunday. John took the boys to the movies. I was running around like a chicken, though. I was trying to cram everything in before they got home. Anywho, here's my LOVE layout:
The last challenge I did a layout for was Pencillines (I'm NOT on crack...the mojo is just flowin' right now! ) This is the layout I did based on last week's sketch:(I only have about 3,000 more of these beach pix to scrap!)

I need some scrappy help! So, I've been investing in these:Michael's sells them for $35 but they were doing a promo last week where they gave you a 50% off coupon with your receipt. I always try to use the coupons on the most expensive thing I need and these were it! But, buying them made me realize I only own this much cardstock:I KNOW, I KNOW...shocking and sad! I have lots of patterned paper...just very little cardstock. So, when Hobby Lobby had the 50% paper sale last week, I got what I could. Now, I have THIS much cardstock:

IT'S STILL NOT ENOUGH...I'm a HOARDER...what am I gonna do with THAT?!?!? So, can somebody tell me where to get the cardstock deals? Our Michael's only sells Bazzill by the sheet and Hobby Lobby sells only TWO different packs of American Crafts cardstock and only the Bazzill shaped cardstock. Anyone who can help me out will get some scrappiness from me!!

I'll leave you with some peeks of the projects I've completed for Buzz and Bloom. Make sure you check out our projects all our projects here...there is greatness to be seen!!! Later!

Easy like Sunday Morning

this is how we do weekends in new orleans:
if you've never had crawfish, come on down...hubbs and i will show you how to do 'em RIGHT!!!! they look like miniature lobsters but they taste 100 times better...in my opinion! i love well-seasoned food and crawfish done right....sorry about the drool on the screen. we got chicken tenders from burger king for kea (did you know that they're shaped like crowns? TOO CUTE!) and sat out on the lakefront. it's about 76 degrees here with a slight breeze...beautiful. we may have a few weeks of winter here every year...then it's back to the heat! hubbs was supposed to build some bookcases for me this weekend, but i guess the daiquiri disabled him (RRRIIIGGGHHT!!!!) we still have a storage unit in baton rouge (where we evacuated before katrina) and the majority of my books that i've accumulated over the past four years are in there. it's bad enough that i lost ALL of my books in the hurricane...now the ones i've collected again are probably desert for the rats. if i go to that storage and the majority of my books are in tatters... BAAYYY BAYYY!!!! mama is NOT gonna be a happy camper!!!! we're doing a family walk this evening because we need to release the fat...well, john and i do. ahmad and kea are skinny minis! hubbs and i feel like we're stuck in a relacore commercial! we're hoping to shape up some before the crescent city classic which is in april. we did the 6.5 miles last year and we're hoping to make it an annual family to do. anywho, i'm hoping to persuade hubbs to get the wood for my bookcases once we leave the park this evening...wish me luck!
also, i've decided to do a few challenges this week: scrapmojo; dreamgirls; the design xperiment; and pencillines. oh, i don't know HOW i'm gonna do them all, plus the rest of my buzz and bloom posts along with cleaning, cooking, working, playing with the boys (including my BIG boy ;) but i'm just sharing my pipe dreams, i mean plans with you!
typepad and i weren't on good terms but i guess we're cool now. i'm finally able to do my posts for Buzz and Bloom. i'm so relieved!!!! i told helene and div that i thought they had secretly kicked me off the design team. they assured me that they still want me! so, go on over to the Buzz and Bloom blog and check out my posts when they're finally up. don't leave without checking out the other girlz work...they freakin' RAWK! later!!!

more scrappiness

i don't know why blogger wouldn't let me post some of my other layouts yesterday...maybe it hates me as much as typepad? anywho, these are more images from my super scrappin' session sunday (say THAT really fast 10 times!!!) wow, they uploaded in about 50 seconds today...go figure. well, i be back later!

Scrap Pages-8 Clean House-0

Sorry it's been so long since i blogged, peggy...i'm slippin'!!!! i don't know WHO won the super bowl, don't know the last time i cleaned but i DO know that i got to kreate yesterday. if hubbs hadn't disturbed me i would have kreated more. you buy a man a 42" tv for christmas and know that the super bowl is coming on and you THINK he's gonna be occupied...LIES AND GARBAGE!!!! between innings, my husband kept running to the bedroom, asking if i had energy. i've had bronchitis for the past week and a half and i've been in bed most of that time. obviously, scrapping is equivalent to running 15 laps in the backyard (according to my hubbs!) anywho, i'm gonna do a super post in honor of the superbowl (won by the steelers, said ahmad!) and the fact that i haven't blogged in forever!!!!

my sister got married the day after christmas. they abandoned their cinderella ball plans and just decided to get married the monday before christmas. yeah, i asked her if she's pregnant, but she denied it...well, time will tell!!!!

i got my stamps from sinapore from this sweetie. i thought it was so wonderful that she just sent a total stranger some scrap yummies. you KNOW i have to send her a treat for being so wonderful!!!

typepad HATES ME!!!! i've been trying to upload my buzz and bloom projects to no avail! hopefully it'll be straightened out this week so that i can post with my b & b sisters! don't wait for me, though...go here to see the rest of the girls' goodies...they are SO TALENTED i love being on the same team as them! and they are teaching me SO MUCH!!!! bjay taught me how to do the hyperlink thing...see, i'm coming into the electronic age SLLLLOOOOWWWWLY!!!!

i treated myself to a making memories carousel today! i've loved them from afar for a long time but REFUSED to pay $50 for it! i had a 50% off coupon for michael's so...happy FEBRUARY TO ME!!!! oh! i want to pass on some good info...michael's now accepts competitor's coupons! so, you can use hobby lobby's 40% off coupons or whomever's there!!!! (enabler alert! guess i should have let you know i was enabling at the BEGINNING!!!) this is great news for me because michael's is much closer than hobby lobby and they have coupons more often. i need more embellies right now like another hole in my head, but i must have some storage. i'm working feverishly (LIES AND GARBAGE!!!) on organizing my studio! i really do want it organized. i took before pix and everything. i would post them but then i would have to shank you all! once i get it organized, i'll show you the disaster that it is now! well, gotta go entertain hubbs now, so i'll post again some time this week!
