*My Little Shoebox December Assignments*

Here are my assignments for the month of December for My Little Shoebox. I must admit that I was playing catch up this month due to some family matters, holidays, kids and my hubby's birthday. I am happy that I was able to finish my work even at these stressful time.
We had a lot of stuff going on for this month for MLS. We got to play with some Shimmerz and My Acrylic Album provided us with mini that spelled our names. This is a first for me! We were also challenge to scraplift one of Michelle Lanning's fab LO. See my take below! I love love the Blingz they were so much fun to play with and very addicting as well. we go!

It's Your Cake!

Happy hellos


My Acrylic Album and Shimmerz Assignment.
This is the first time I was able to play with a mini album that spells out my name. I thought for a long while what I will use this mini for and finally came up with this concept:
All About Me on 2009
Here are some of the pages!
I used the Hottie Pink Blingz for the flowers. I LOVE LOVE LOVE the Blingz!

I also added the hottie pink on my butterflies!
I just want to say HAPPY HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my baby Jorge! It was his Birthday yesterday and we spent the day with our friends Cheryl, John and their daughter in Seattle after picking them up from the airport. They took us for lunch at Mizo Japanese Steak house. I only have a couple of pics but John will post a video of Jorge dancing while they sang him a japanese version of Happy Birthday on Facebook . Hahahaha! It was a simple but happy day. I wish you many many more birthday baby! Well that is it folks. Thanks for coming by and checking out my work, blurbs and what ever else you get out of this lil ole blog of mine! Have a great day!

I *LOVE* Virtual Crops!!!

My Scrapbook Nook had a Virtual Crop this past weekend and I took way advantage of it. I think they had like 27 challenges....and I participated in 12 of them. WOW! I'm telling you, my butt was pretty much glued to my scrap room/computer area all weekend long. Although I did take a break Friday night to go to the movies with the fam bam to watch 2012. Which was GREAT! Anyway, I thought I'd share with ya what I was able to make this weekend. This is by the way the most I have done in a crop...EVAAAA! Ok, warning lots of pics kay! Oh sorry for the poor quality of the pics, it's really hard here in Washington to get good pics, its really dark all day long right now.

Christmas Projects????

So....I have been really thinking about the projects I want to create before this year ends. I have been wanting to make a December Daily Album (thanks to Ali E.) since last year but have never gotten to do it. I have alot of projects in my head that never gets done and then I end up kicking myself in the rear end for not doing it. UGH! It's a never ending battle I tell ya!

So I think this year is the year I will actually get my stuff together and do some xmas projects. At first I didn't know if I should make a mini album that will hold ALL our past and present xmas memories or just do one like Ali, just focusing on the month of our December month activities. Now I don't have to choose! I am doing a Dec. daily album and I have sign up for Jessica Sprague Holidays in Hand (which is free by the way) that will be a mini for past and present holiday memories. PERFECT right?

Now I just have to get my materials ready and make up my dang mind as to which paper line I will use up for these projects. You don't understand! I have so many choices as far as xmas line to choose from so I cant make up my mind. I have October Afternoon, SEI, Websters Pages, KI and Anna Griffin xmas lines. So many products to choose from so little time. Now I REALLY NEED TO MAKE UP MY MIND and GET TO IT! Yes, I am yelling at myself. I don't know, I really don't know which to use, I might just mix them all up...huh? There's no rule, I just need to get going and create my minis.

Are you guys doing anything? If you guys are in the same boat as me...let me know. Maybe we can motivate each other and share our creations or lack there of. Heee

*MLS Assignments for November*

I am IN LOVE with IN BLOOM! There I said it? I must confess I really did enjoy playing with this line. The colors are perfect for my little Angels pictures since she is always wearing pink. Here are 3 LO's I did using the In Bloom line from My Little Shoebox. Hope you all enjoy looking at them as much as I have enjoyed creating them.
My Angel

I really did go to town with my embellishments with My Angel. I have been hoarding these mesh flowers and sparkly butterflies just for the perfect LO. And this was it! It was just perfect for all the colors. They go so well together.

My Girl

I used my fancy lace trim for this LO. I bought so much goodies from downtown LA that I have not wanted to use in just anything. But with this LO it was calling my fancy lace and I am so glad I used it, it made the LO stand out. This is by far my fave pic of my daughter.

Bikini Girl
This is a pic of my daughter on her 4Th birthday party in Georgia. She got this bikini as a present from my cousin Rose and she is just in love with it. In fact to this day this is her fave outfit to go swimming in. It has a matching dress and slippers and she just loves them. I had to create a LO just for that. Hee!
