 Hello Hello Fellow Followers,

I have some news of an awesome Giveaway going on at my scrapbooking community, Colorful Creations, They just re-started the Blog back up! HERE, Please make sure ya'all check em out and follow the blog :)  

The Giveaway (Pic to the LEFT) 
 There are: a bunch of papers, paper roses, alphas, ribbons & misc. embellies!! 

So go on over and check them out! They will also be doing weekly challenges and there are links to the main site where there are tons of challenges and prizes every month!

Ok now onto some new creations, LO's that I have created with my Memories Suite V3!

My 2 boys, Lane and John!
The journaling says:
John loves the water, My lil' fish! He 
Loves to run and jump, mainly
in the deep end!
Lane and his basketball ...
He loves to play hoops, even
if it's by himself.
I'm no good at making em in.

This one was tough for me, as for the challenge it was all about circles, but I didn't want it to be plain, so I added a ton of layers to make it look super cool,  like my boys :)

" THE BIG 1-0" 

 I completed this challenge for the Colorful
Creations main site, we had to have stars, numbers and a triangle in the LO, my triangle 
is the arrow. 
My son loves all these elements, his fav colors are blue and silver, loves stars and glitter and ropes as you can tell by the pic! He was creating
his own swings on a tree at his grandpa & grandma's house :)  I really can't believe he is 
turning 10 in July! The time flies by so 
quickly :(

 "Spring Cleanup: PG 1"

Another created for Colorful Creations, this one is supposes to have the great ourdoors in some way on the LO, and it's a 2 pager Challenge, the 2nd page is below :)

My hubby & I were doing some yard work out back for the post spring cleanup here on Fort Carson, CO.

This pic was taken after we were done and I changed, I had to go to the store and I wasn't gonna go with dirt all over me LOL ....

 " Spring Cleanup: PG 2"

The 2nd part to the LO above! SO cute my hubby working with the weed eater :) I was taking a break and wanted to snap a couple of pics for challenges going on over at Colorful Creations ( the link to the site is above in the first part of my post, labeled "Colorful Creations"

We ended up completing so much to our back yard that day, we lined the walkways with 
cool colored rocks (native to Colorado), mowed and weed eated the grass and grass line,
filled in some holes that a neighbors dog dug, and I created my planting space :)

" Just Me"

Another for a challenge at Colorful Creations,
This was a designer challenge
 I decided to use pinks since I love the color pink
and I thru in there some hints of yellow and green to through off the pink, along with a
lil bling .... Every woman has to have 
a lil bling, LOL :)

All of the challenges that we complete have a sketch and/or a recipe to follow, if you don't follow them, you don't get an entry into the monthly drawing for the main RAK, which is usually given by one of the sponsors!

I'm Back!! And with some cards & LO's :)

Hello Agian!!!

It's been awhile since my last post.  I have the internet again though :) YAY ... Now i'm not so bored!

I've had medical problems, but I'm back now :)
I started scraping again, mostly cards and digi's.  I reciently came back from Washington State, unfortuantly it was for a family tragedy, my grandpa died on Easter Sunday. I made my grandma a card and a second one for a gift from my self, my parents and uncles/aunts. Here they are!  Oh, and her favorite color is Red ... LOL just like mine!

Here is another that I created shortly after the above cards, while I was bored sitting at home!

Ok ... I'm sitting at 44 followers! Almost at 50!! Please share so I can reach my goal and move on to 100 followers! I'm now here to stay, so I'll be posting about every other day! I will also be starting a challenge next Monday!

 I also have started messing around with Digital Layouts with the MySuitesV3 Program ... I think it's easier to use the V2 version!

Here are some that I have completed for Colorful Creations
Challenges ... We have roughly around 20 or more "Events" (Challenges) each month that are created by fellow followers that are recruited for the Design Team (DT's) ... I was trying out for a DT position last year, but then I got sick and was diagnosed with cancer. I am still fighting it thanks to some missed tissues during a surgery to remove my cervics due to Cervical Cancer and now I also have a tumor in my right leg called an "Enchrondroma" which might be changing. Very painful but manageable right now. I'll be seeing a specialist with in the next couple of weeks to do further testing, until then I will be completing challenges by these wonderful ladies and gentlemen!

Here are a couple of the LO's that I have completed:

This one I did in honor of my son :) He is my Lil Fish! He was always asking to go in the pool :)  He is such a sweet little boy!

 This one is one of my favorites ... I was in Washington State for a couple of months while my husband was deployed. During that time, my Grandfather had passed away on Easter Sunday, so after his funeral ( about 2 weeks after) my Grandmother wanted to do a family BBQ.  All of my Uncles, Aunts, my Parents and my Brother and his Fiance came. This is a picture of our family :)

 My Lil Star ... My youngest son, John "JC", (also pictured above) loves posing for the camara ... The camara loves him :)
This LO was created for an "Inspired By" Challenge, the Inspiration that was chosen was a German Chocolate Cake ... LOL ... So I took the caramel and chocolate colors and mixed them, I also took the shininess of the caramel and through in some glitter splashes behind the picture and framing the picture. There is journaling in one the stars, the lower right star.

Ok now on to some more exciting news ...
I will be having a giving away for celebrating my welcome back! And my 50 Followers Giveaway is still in effect ... so PLEASE ... Help me to get from 44 Followers to 50 .. Once I do I will randomly select 3 Followers to win a prize from me :) The prize will consist of papers and embellies :)
