New site called

Ok I've just found this really awesome sight, where you can join all kinds of different swaps, from scrapbooking inspired swaps to just junk, from ribbon and fabric swaps to pre-made items like aprons and my first swap is just that. An aqua and red inspired half apron. This apron was a lot of fun, I hope my swap partner likes it. It has 4 pockets silky ribbon ties, tulle fringe, and a removable hand towel.

12 Hour Benifit Crop What Fun!

My best friend Lydia and I went to Neosho MO yesterday to attend a 12 hour benifit crop. There is a nice little scrapbook store in Neosho called Stickers and Stuff that sponsors these 12 hour crops twice a year to benifit local charities. You only pay $35 and in return you get 12 hours of amazing good times, 2 home cooked meals (yum) plus snacks and drinks, free gift package of great products, contests with prizes throughout the day, and 2 mini classes. The gals that put this on are amazing! They are friendly, upbeat wonderful ladies who always remember everyone's names. So here are some pictures of the day.
Here is a pic of Lydia and I, she with her iphone headphones jammin out while cropping. Everyone was wearing some kind of green for March.

Here is the last pag I worked on about my 4 year old daughter and the changes she went through between her first and second birthday. I didn't get completely done with this one.

Here is a page I did get done about my son William. His 4th grade basket ball season just ended last weekend and his year end party is today so I thought it would be a great page to put up on his wall perhaps.

Here is another page about William entitled "bass face". We were at a friend's house and William was playing around with one of the many bass guitars there. Even though he doesn't know how to play yet he sure makes it look good. He's so theatrical, he's definately got the bass face down. LOL.

During the crop one of the contests was to decorate the green ballon each of us got. I used some of the papers I got in my free gift package to make a Lepricon. Mr. Lucky hitched a ride home with us at the end of the night.

Graphic 45 Vintage Inspired Papers Candle Holder

Here is a pretty candle holder I've just altered with some wonderful paper from Graphic 45. If you haven't found Graphic 45 papers yet I urge you to go check out their website They have the most delicious assortment of vintage inpired pattern paper. I have a standing order at my local scrapbook store for 2 sheets of every paper of their new line. Can't wait to get my hands on it! You can't tell by looking at this candle holder but when it's dark and the candle is lit you can see the stripes from the backside of the floral background glowing through which gives it a lot of dimension. It is a welcome addition to my home.

12 Hour Crop Tomorrow! Woo Hoo!

Tomorrow my best friend Lydia and I are going to go to a 12 hour crop in MO. 9am to 9pm of fun games, great prizes, free meals, blue light specials, laughing, and scrapping. All for only $35, can't beat that and all proceeds go to charity, BONUS! I'll post some pics Sun after we get back. Till then, Happy Scrappin!
