I was reminded today why I scrap...

I told you in the last post that I have been making many more cards then I have been making LO's. I said I was going to make a LO before I make anymore cards... well, I didn't! My main computer has crashed so I can't access my photos or photoshop so I went back to cards.

Today my sweet little Levi is sick and running a high fever. As I was snuggling him, I told him how cute he is. He asked me "Momma, was a cute when I was a baby?" I was able to pull out my albums and show him a couple LO's from when he was a little guy! It was a FANTASTIC moment!

It was also a convicting moment for me! I don't have very many LO's in any of the kids albums. I do need to scrapbook more LO's for children! They LOVE to pull out all my albums and just look through them and read them!

Brian has started working 2pm-midnight so my evenings are free after the kids go to bed. After thier bedtime is only time of the day I watch TV, just to veg before bed. I need to be disciplined to turn off the TV and go to my scrapbook room and be productive, I know that capturing my boys childhoods in albums has much more value then anything I can watch on TV.

I realized this week that I should be calling myself a "Carder" rather then a "Scrapper". I make a million times more cards then I do LO's. I AM going to finish a LO I started before I make another card! Really, I AM!!

I made this card last night and I am SO pleased with the way it turned out. Now, I just need someone to have a little girl! My sister is due in September so I guess she will get it.

My friend loaned me her butterfly punch and I am having so much fun with it.

Keeping Busy

I have been keeping busy this last week cutting all kinds of cute critters from our new Create a Critter Cartridge!! I think we have cut at least of of them and they are so cute! Everyday each of the kids beg for a new critter.

I cut the little bee and was not sure what to do with it. I almost added it to our LARGE stack of critters but then decided to make a card with her.

My Michael's Haul

I have a friend who is constantly telling me about the great deals she gets at Michael's. I NEVER find them!
Well today was a different story! I got each of these items on clearence for $.99 OR LESS!! ROCK ON!! I am getting ready to start my sisters's pregnancy album so I scored with all the girlie stuff!

I couldn't resist any longer!!

Cricut released this cartridge a couple months ago and my kids have been begging for it!! I liked the cart right away. BUT when I saw Peachy Keens Critter Face stamps AND My Pink Stampers Phrase stamps I really fell in love with the Cart!

I couldn't resist any longer and I finally buckled and ordered the cart last Thursday.

On Friday I ordered the Peachy Keen stamps and they arrived today!! They are so adorable!

And this Punny-licious set go perfectly! But I have not ordered them yet...
I see some cute critter in my scrappy future!!

A little Blog update!

I decided to give my blog a new background in memory of my Grandmother! We would have celebrated her birthday this month!
