If I were..

I apologize for once again being a horrible blogger but, lately, I seriously feel like lukewarm gopher poo. My tummy aches almost constantly (it's from the new meds)and I have little energy for much of anything. Add to the load that we're moving (more about that later)from the place we've lived in for more than 30 years (tons and tons and tons of crap to toss) and I'm a wee bit overwhelmed. I promise to upload a freebie before Wednesday (I have a couple ready to go but the thought of uploading is just too much at the moment). I have been doing a bit of scrapping (as well as packing boxes), the scrapping is relaxing and somewhat comforting. So, just know I haven't forgotten you, and I'll be back soon with bunches of goodies.

I found this over at Gerushia's New World and thought it was the cutest little survey..

What Would You Be?

If I were a month I’d be May
If I were a day I’d be Sunday
If I were a time of day I’d be sunrise
If I were a planet I’d be Venus

If I were a sea animal I’d be a dolphin
If I were a direction I’d be west
If I were a piece of furniture I’d be a rocking chair
If I were a liquid I’d be wine

If I were a gem stone I’d be diamond
If I were a tree I’d be a magnolia

If I were a tool I’d be a drill
If I were a flower I’d be a dandelion

If I were an element of weather I’d be the rain
If I were a musical instrument I’d be a flute
If I were a color I'd be blue

If I were an emotion I’d be love

If I were a fruit I’d be a mango
If I were a sound I’d be laughter
If I were an element I'd be water

If I were a car I’d be a mustang

If I were a food I’d be pasta
If I were a place I’d be a jungle
If I were a material I'd be silk

If I were a taste I’d be bittersweet

If I were a scent I’d be jasmine

If I were a body part I’d be a mouth
If I were a facial expression I'd be a smile
If I were a song I’d be sung by adam levine

If I were a bird I'd be a dove

If I were a gift I'd be a book
If I were a street I'd be unpaved

If I were a city I'd be Paris
If I were a door I'd be open

If I were a pair of shoes I’d be slippers

And what would you be?

I am so sorry I've been awol but between my achy tummy, doing my layouts for ADSR and prepping to move, lots and lots going on. I'll be back later to show off some pages and explain.

Yes, It's Me

Good evening/morning. Damn, I didn't realize it was already 3-ish am here. Wow, time sure flies when one is pulling her hair out by the roots attempting to put together this crazy Zen Cart crap. Back in the day, I could throw together a website pretty darn quick using html but this php stuff is much more difficult for me. That's what happens when one gets old I suppose. Bleeck.

Anyway, the real reason I popped on was not to whine and bitch about my shop but to post some photos cause I'm in the Amazing Digi Scrapping Race. How super awesome is that? I'm really excited! We received our first assignment, being as we are two person team, we are to create an introduction page on our partners. My lovely and talented scrapping other half is Jess (nof007750) who I met over at Digital Freebies. Her layouts are amazing and I'm sure she'll carry me through the entire competition. She needs a photo of me so here's a few..
I love trees

Doing the 'we won' dance

Snorkling in Hawaii

Wrestling with one of my players

At Disneyland a few hundred years ago

Yes, I once was that young

and I once was that thin

After a win

This is one of my favorite photos

I was a Brownie

Looks like I went a bit picture posting crazy. Oh well..

Catch ya'll manana.

Is it me..?? (& a freebie)

Seriously, is it me? Seems like something happens with every scrap site I fall in love with. I'm begining to see myself as somewhat of a jinx. This is just so poo. Bleeck.

Anyway, sorry I skipped a few days bloggingwise but I've had a bit of tummy trouble. When the belly begins to act up, it's best for me to hit the bed, strap on a heating pad and sleep my aches and pains away. I finished reading East of Eden (ech) and I have been keeping up with my layouts and working on my store though. Go me!

I finished this page this morning, how adorable was my oldest when he was younger? I did this one for the Digi Chick Blog scraplift. Did you know they moved all their challenges to their blog? I just found out, I was wondering what happened to them. I used All I Need by Paislee Press and also her template, Press Plate #15. I'm sure you're familiar with her blog, if not, pop over and check out her lessons on photography as well as her gorgeous kits.

This page is for MScraps Photography Challenge about reflections. You should check out the amazing photos. I had this photo of the house next door reflected in my DD's beer bottle and I love it. I used Three Paper Peonies 'Beautiful' kit available at MScraps.

Last but never least, this page of my daughter, my youngest son and my dad for a scraplift over at MScraps. Made with Three Paper Peonies kit called Change.

And, before I waddle over to bed, here's a little something for you just because I love all of you so much.

Grab It before next Friday cause it will be gone.

I Love February

Just wanted to pop in to remind you about my Tuesdays With Tula challenge over at Digital Freebies. This week it's all about double page layouts and multiple photos. Come play a bit.

I love the mini kit from After Five's OTH challenge, gorgeous. I finished up this layout called You Are So Beautiful..

I'm off to do a bit of work on my shop. Anyone know how to figure out Zen Cart, please, holla.

Happy February!!

Happy first of February!! I love this month being as Valentine's Day falls right in the middle. V-Day is my favorite holiday, I just love it. Flowers and chocolate and cards, oh my. How can you beat that?

Have you had a moment to pop over to the grand opening of Memory Scraps, or MScraps for short? They have a fabulous line up of designers, tons of super fun challenges and, from what I can tell, a friendly group of scrappers. I grabbed this kit called Love by Three Paper Peonies..

Aren't the colors fantastic?
And I also grabbed Hello Sunshine by Kelley Mickus Designs..

I love all the yellow so much I put together this page for their template challenge.

No matter what month it is, the first day is always so thrilled for me with all the new challenges and there are so many fabulous ones out there.

After Five has a wonderful "On The House" challenge where they provide you with a gorgeous mini kit to work with. This month's freebie is by Cinnamon Designs and it is stunning. Drop by and grab it ASAP.

Another one of my favs is the Pen Scrappers Wacom contest where you can win a Bamboo Craft plus so much more. How awesome is that? Just bounce over to download the kit and get started.

And don't forget to check out tomorrow's Tuesday With Tula to see what I have going on for you.

Just want to leave you with today's photo. I told you how cluttered my night stand was and here's a bit of proof.
