From SJ with love...

Sitting here in bed in SJ, not feeling to yummy, think I'm coming down with a cold...yuck! It's the weekend though, so I'm going to enjoy it! We are here visiting my in-laws for the May long weekend. Also going to do some shopping, and I got my Tupperware order finally! :D Loved taking it all out to check it out, can't wait to get it home and find homes for it.
I had a fun time scraping this last week. Got a LO done for Michelle's Challenge over at the APOS! Forum. She inspired us by posting a song!

Tonight another weekly challenge was posted by the lovely Meg! I love the bright colors and know that I lots of bright colored paper for the challenge, now just to find the right photo to go along with it!

I have a few plans for this week in scrapping, one is to my challenge together! Please visit me on the Forum at A PILE OF SCRAP! next Friday May 27th when I post the Weekly Challenge!

Have you been doing any scrapbooking this week? Cards? If so, come on over to APOS! and share with us your talents, we'd love to meet you!

I hope you all have a wonderful May long weekend! I'll see you soon!

All things Scrappy

It's been kind of blah here lately. Lots of rain and dreary days, today I think the sun is trying to peak out though! I'll hope for the best on my day off. Lots of things going on today, hoping to get a few LOs done and to also get 2 cards finished. Wish me luck!

Since I last posted, I attended National Scrapbooking Day with APOS! at Gibson Memorial United Church. It was so much fun with lots of great ladies to visit with, chat with and have a great time! I got a few projects done!

This first project is one of my new fave Layouts! I love the colors and those flowers are to just BEAUTIFUL!!! :D

My SIL is having a Birthday later in the month so I though it was a great time to get a card made early, seeing how we have to mail it to Halifax! Hubby is now in charge in writing in the card and getting it mailed's still sitting on the coffee table! lol

Tam's over at APOS! posted the first Inspiration Challenge. It was a theme around the Royal Wedding! Something Borrowed (I still have to creat my borrowed LO), Something Blue (pretty, Something Old (Some of the buttons have been around for awhile, they belonged to my Grandmother) Something New (New travel embellies). Please pop over for a visit to the forum to check out all the other GREAT LOs for this challenge!

For about two weeks there was a challenge posted on the A PILE OF SCRAP! Forum to do a LO with 90% of the supplies being Girl's Paperie! I loved these papers and cute lil number brads!

The next 2 days will be quite busy trying to get some more LOs done! Can't wait to share them with you all! Don't froget to pop over to the APOS! Forum and join the ladies Friday night for a new Inspiration Challenge, and also on Saturday May 15th I will be revealing the Scrapper of the Month for May!!

I've got lots of cards to be making this month. I started today and made 2 Mother's Day cards with Pinwheels, but sadly forgot to take my pics :( I really have to learn to take pics of my projects. I have a few more Birthday cards to make so I'll be taking some pics of those. Over at A PILE OF SCRAP! they have great card ideas on the forum, if you need any inspiration, that is the place to go.

National Scrapbooking Day is coming up really fast! I can't wait for 12 hours of Scrapping with my APOS! Buddies. I have to get some planning done, I know of 2 LOs already that I would like to get done. Also I love to have some sketches printed off to take with me so I have ideas with me at all times. I will need to make sure everything is packed and in order for my outing too, don't want to forget anything. Although APOS! will be on site for me to buy anything I forget.

Happy Scrapping in the days ahead!
