Project 365 Jan 25th - Jan 31st

YAY! Here we are with another week of Project-365 down! I am really enjoying thinking of 'everyday' photos to show off our everyday life!!

This week I am playing with some frames in Photoshop - not sure if I like them on all of the photos - def LOVE it on my Friday Starbucks photo! ;)

Jan 25th

Had to renew our auto registrations today - the one & only time I will have to do this during 2009 since both vehicles renew at the same time (due to me not renewing them in a timely fashion in 2007!) ACK! Frame by Sande Kreiger for Two Peas.

Jan 30th
Fridays are great anyway but even better with a Grande Toffee Nut Latte (non-fat) from Starbucks sitting on my desk at work! :) Frame by Sande Kreiger for Two Peas.

Paper Trunk new lines!

Check out the new lines by Paper Trunk and their little blog give-away!

Paper Trunk sponsored the SBO DT in 2008 - and man oh man their papers ROCK! I love the textures of them and I think it is the only line I used every last scrap up!! YUM!!

I LOVE the colors in Socialite YUMMMO!!! So spread the word & get yourself in the drawing for these papers!

and for reminiscing sakes, here are some of my layouts from the SBO DT using Paper Trunk:

As always, THANKS for stopping by my blog! :)

Give a scrapper a sketch ...

...and she'll scrap it! I cannot tell you how good it feels to be cranking thru cards and layouts that I am LOVING (after my Nov / Dec dry spell)! Of course I owe inspiration to some sketches - thanks to all of the great sketches out there! :)

Last night I manipulated the January sketch over at My Sketch World

I have pics picked out for the other side of the sketch, but I need some yellow ink and cyan ink (I always seem to run out of cyan ink!); so hoping to run to OfficeMax this week with my handy dandy coupon for $15 off a $75 purchase to stock up on ink! :)

Here is the orig. sketch:

Here is my take on it, I rotated the left page (with lots of goodies from Jolene - THANKS!! :)):

Thanks for stopping by! :)

Project 365 Jan 18th - Jan 24th

And another week is behind us and I am totally lovin' this project 365!! This is going to be super cool to look back at and see all of the everyday things we take for granted!! I haven't printed any pictures yet, I think I will do that at the end of each month and put them in the album.

Jan 18th - Our 12th wedding anniversary! Awwww! We didn't do anything but watch the football play-off's on tv ... I am still catching slack for not wanting to go to Brook's Steakhouse that night - but never fear, I will redeem it one of these days! ;)

Jan 19th - Here is the site from my scrap table; my faithful shadow Oswald (notice my white storage cube?) :)

Jan 20th - A new president takes office, it's amazing to have a discussion about the inauguration and history with Seth.

Jan 21st - When Rick works late, it's cereal night for Seth & me!

Jan 22nd - Just givin' back to the economy!

Jan 23rd - Grocery Shopping!! I left my list in the car and I remembered all but two items! WTG! lol!

Jan 24th - A monster truck on our fruit bowl; this just says "Seth was here" I have a collection of photos over the past 8 years of things like this. (Of course when I was taking the pic I barely touched the monster truck & he fell ... I couldn't get him to stay up there so it's a wonder how Seth got him to stay there for the past few days!)

Thanks for stoppin' by my blog! :)

Polka Dots!!

The latest challenge over at caardvarks is polka dots! Who doesn't love polka dots and who wouldn't love the ROCKIN' kit they are giving away as a prize!!

Also, be sure to check out the DT's great cards - especially Jolene's aqua & brown one (mmmmm aqua & brown!!) - that one is my birthday card!! YAY!!!

Here is my polka dot card (when the card is lying flat you can actually see the black card stock thru the heart border punch because the front part of the card is shorter than the back - however I didn't catch that part in my photograph & it's dark out now.) ;)

TFL :)

Project 365 Jan 11th - Jan 17th

Another week of Project 365!

Jan 11th
Seth's first sleep-over of the year at our house with his two best buddies - Michael & Scott

Jan 12th 
Leave it to the weathermen to predict 1-2" of snow & we really end up with about 6".  This is the view from Seth's school looking west.  I love when the clouds hang low over the mountains.

Jan 13th
Seth's pocket contents!  The same day I took this pic I saw the quote " not all treasure is silver & gold" ... perfect.

Jan 14th
Seth's new Denver Nuggets Basketball jersey.  Last Friday, Rick went to the Nuggets game & brought this home for Seth.

Jan 15th
This week Seth is the star student at school, so he gets to do all of the morning cool things.  I was glad it was a week when I was helping out so I could sneak in a pic!

Jan 16th
Ahhh me at my computer - not a great pic, but whatever I on the other side of the camera! ;) LOL!

Jan 17th
With the weather reaching the mid-60's, we hit the park with our friends.  Here are the boys investigating the ice covered stream ... and if you look near the top of the pic, you can see the dads up at the top field - where we later played kickball, baseball & football!  Good times!

TFL :)
