Finally.. Scanned

Hey folks... it's been some crazy busy in my lil life lately, but I was forced to slow it down when i got hit by the nasty virus that has plagued my family for the past 3 weeks. It came on pretty fast too. So I have no voice (dh is doing the happy dance), I am coughing like crazy, my left ear is so full it's painful, and I am dead tired. Can you believe that my kids are just starting to get over this bug. It's a nasty one this year I tell you, lasting around 3-4 weeks. Make sure you wash your hands guys... cause you don't want this believe me!! LOL

Just to let you guys know... Bad Girl Kits is hosting a Xmas Workshop this weekend, posting some awesome classes for gift ideas etc... these gals are super talented, so do yourself a favour and check em out... especially if your into the vintage/shabby chic look!

So I finally scanned in some of the LO's I did in NAVCAN in October... thanks for having a look!!!!!!!!!!!!

This is a 12x12 of my girls (aren't they getting so big???), using my Oct 07 Jenni Bowlin kit.

This is a 12x12 of Alexa. I still don't care for this LO all that much, but was reassured by my YAYAs that it was great... I love my bestest friends when they lie to me .... LMAO

Man this scan does this LO no justice. I think it is by far one of my faves of all time. So I have this HP photo creating program that allows me to print off a zillion pics on one sheet, and then I can make multi photo LO's. So that is what I did with this one! I am not too sure if you can tell, but I pop dotted a few on the smaller ones off the page to give them the 3D effect. Very Cool. A 12x12 of my girls and my niece and nephew at my sitters.

A 12x12 of my baby girl Angelina when she was just a baby..LOL I love these pics of her... if you have met my youngest dd, then you know this is so her personality. So a funny about this LO.. I had added all kinds of dots with my stickles... but then just hated the look of it. So I took a kleenex and wiped all the stickles all over the page before they dried. Now my entire page is sparkly and sweet!! REMEMBER THERE ARE NO MISTAKES IN SCRAPPIN..LOL

Wasn't too pleased with this one either, and the scan makes it look funny..LOL I couldn't get it to photomerge with PSE, so I manually did (I was too lazy to rescan) it, and it looks like Angies head is bashed in. IMPORTANT.. no child was harmed in the scanning of this image... A 12x12 of my girls.

Oh how I love the simplicity of this LO. I used an Xacto knife on a glass mat (awesome idea Tanya) and it was smooth like a hot knife in butter. I cut out some of the PP image and layered it on top of my pic and under some flower embellishments. Great way to let the PP talk for itself. 12x12 of my gals!

I was very happy with this LO... My Melly suggested the Acetate Stars outlined with paint as the finishing touch and I'd have to agree that it was perfect. Thanks girl! A 12x12 of who else... my girls..LMAO

I did this LO for Steph as we drew names to swap pics, and I got hers. This is her and her handsome hubby Stephane. I used Rusty pickle, and finally cracked into my Biggest Board chipboard... I was happy with how it turned out and I think she was pleased too! A 12x12.

Thanks for having a look. I need to scan in all the YAYA's pages that they did for me... I can't wait to show them off!!!!!

One last thing... a good chuck of my layouts were based off of sketched thru LM's Oct sketch challenge. I didn't get them scanned in on time but I sure was inspired so a shout out of thanks to them!

Back from Winnipeg

Hey everyone.. well I have landed safe and sound and am home cuddling with the family. I forgot to post that I was going out of town for a few days this week for work. I did get to visit with my aunt and uncle and cousins however, and I had an absolute blast... it's too bad I didn't get the chance to stay longer!!

In my absence, John was dealing with some pretty nasty yuckies here in our home. He was some sick last week fighting this head cold, and then of course it hit Lexa pretty bad. Now it has claimed Angie's immune system, and she is not at all happy about So anyways, time to give John some time off and take over for a while letting him rest up. Keep your fingers crossed that it doesn't get me..LOL

Anyways, off tomorrow, and will have a chance to get caught up on the bigillion e-mails and sites/blog reads... I think we are in for a quiet weekend (thank
