A Layout About Me...published!

So this is supposed to be a scrapbooking blog...but where is the scrapbooking stuff, you ask? I have been asking myself that very same question. I am finally over the sickness part of this pregnancy and it seems I am scrapbooking more than I ever have but the blog is still lacking. Well, that is because I have been saving all my projects for other things. Exciting things. FAB things that everyone needs to check out! A long, LONG time ago I promised fantastic scrapbooking news to come in December. Well, there are 2 great things. First, I was asked to be on a design team for the Crop N Craft Room which is my former LSS. A small team but we are plugging along with some great ideas. Bear with us, the website is a work in progress right now but so far I think it's coming along great. I have been doing a few things for the website which I can't post on my that is where at least some of my projects are going! Second, the amazingly talented and huge hearted Leica Forrest did a layout about me and my scrapbooking class for kids and it was published in Canadian Scrapbooker Magazine. Check out page 20, you won't be disappointed. I know I wasn't!!! Just goes to show that a small town girl can make a difference with a little Faith and the right people in her corner. Don't give up on things just because you think it's difficult!!! Keep striving for your goals, you'll get there. A HUGE thank-you to Leica for all her hard work...there are just no words to thank her enough for what she did for me. Currently, she is soaking up the rays off the coast of Mexico teaching on the Canadian Crop and Cruise. Oh how I wish I was there with her!!! Check out her blog and send her some love. This girl is seriously out of control in the amazing scrapbooking category. I can't wait to have coffee with her again sometime soon. Be safe Leica!
A couple projects on the go right now...I did a mini book with my fantabulous
Zutter Machine that I won at the JSI Spring Crop in April and it actually turned out~! Thanks to Ralna for her tutorial, this thing was giving me serious trouble. But now I'm a Zuttering fool.
Check out me and my bad self: (This original idea came from
Wilna Furstenberg's Make N Take at the JSI Spring Fling)

There are lots more pages but it's the same idea.
I love all the tags and funky ribbon.
Don't forget to put a little something on the back!

I'm also working on other altered projects like scrapbooked Christmas ornaments, other mini books and homemade Christmas cards/letters/envelopes/all in one type of thing. Thank-you to Wilna Furstenberg for her wonderful RAK. She sent me Season of Joy book by MM and it is really outstanding. I am doing 2 of the projects in there right now! And Wilna is in the book which is great too...I love her style. This book is a must have for the holiday scrapper.

What else to tell??? I'll have LOTS of trip LOs coming your way before Christmas...I have grand plans of finishing (did I just say the F word???) my 2003 trip to Mexico, 2007 trip to the Dominican and my son's first year album all before the baby comes in April. Plus all the Christmas projects I am into right now. Am I crazy? Yes, yes I am.
And loving every minute of it.
