Oh what a night...

Last night was Creative You Scrapbooking's First Crop Night since we have moved into our new location. Boy did we have a blast. The night started of with Ramona teaching a 2 page layout class and then we followed with dinner and cropped until midnight. As you can see in the pictures posted there was a tad bit of craziness. That Leslie is a trip! There definitely wasn't a dull moment. Congrats to Elisa for winning Queen of the Crop, You totally rocked! Some how she managed to get more done than any of us the whole night! Thank you Mrs. Mona for being the mama hen, I enjoyed our talks. Ramona, big thanks to you as well for bringing something fun to the table and
the girls can't wait to get their Close To My Heart stuff in! Yvette, you are sillier in more ways than you realize! I can always tell when it is getting close to time to end the night because you start giggling at everything. Stacy, what can I say, BABIES! No really, you are being a better and better scrapper every time we get together and I am proud of you. Welcome Ms. Cindii to the group! Last but not least, we enjoyed all the stories shared Abbey, I look forward to seeing the end product of the picture of your in-laws and thank you for sharing memories of my mom.
I hope everyone had as much fun and I did and thank you for coming and of course I appreciate your shopping as well. I am looking forward to next month!

Have a Happy Sunday!

Yep... That is Yvette crying... Leslie had Yvette crying and me running to the bathroom to keep from peeing on myself... Like I said "OH WHAT A NIGHT"

I have to say that I thought today would be your typical Wednesday, but I was totally wrong! The store was taken over by a crew of Scrapaholics! Not just any Scrapaholics, they were all sisters (my bad, there was one Mother and Granddaughter). They were hilarious! I enjoyed having them there with me so much. By the way when I say crew I mean there was like 8 of these fabulous ladies. Once everyone left and sat in my chair behind the counter and reflected on what a blessing it must be for them to all have each other and to all have this wonderful hobby to share a group. I also realized that is something that I will never have with my mom, but on the brighter side I can definitely start something like that with my own daughters. Scrap booking is all about the memories. It is your shot to tell your story and the story of your love ones through your eyes. Thank you ladies for sharing your presence with me and giving me glance into your family life and for making me smile until my cheeks hurt!

Oh and we have a winner for the Blogger only drawing that I promised!

Come on in Kelly when ever you get a chance to pick up some Black Rhinestones from KAISERCRAFTS new collection.

The Color Corner and Feeling like a Give-a-way!

K, so I took a quick shot picture on my way out the door today of all my new Ranger Products! Check out my Color Corner! You can find all kind of goodies there to add some uppadie to any layout or project you may be working on! In today's shipment I received:
20 colors of Crackle Paints
24 colors of Perfect Pearls
24 colors of Alcohol Inks
30 colors of Stickles
If you have never used any of the products and would like to know how they work, stop in the store for a demo or join us for a my WHOLE LOT OF COLOR Technique class coming soon. I will also be making a check list of each of these products for you collectors.
Don't want to pay $9.00 for Spray Mist and only be able to purchase limited colors? Stop in the store and ask me how to make your own using some of the products.
With all the excitement I have decided that it is time for another Give-A-Way! Yep, it's time for another drawing. Tomorrow night at 8:00 one of you will win something adorable from KaiserCraft. Good Luck Scrap Buddies!
Good Night Ladies!,

Counting Blessings...

I just love, love, love these new sheer tags from Maya Road! They are made of thick sheer vinyl, 32 to a pack, different shapes, sayings and comes in one of their signature tins. You can see by the picture here that I used this Counting Blessings Sheer on a layout I did for Grant's 4th birthday layout. I used a black thin line sharpie marker and there you have it.

Speaking of counting blessings... I just had the cutest little boy climb in the bed with me. I just love it when he does that. Every once in while he will come in my room at night (only when his daddy isn't home) and he will wake me up by saying "Mommy... you look like you need some one to cuddle with." Considering the fact that I am already asleep (and God only knows what that looks like) I am willing to bet Grant is the one who really needs some cuddling, but I am always willing to say "I sure do, how did you know." He always says " I just do mommy cause I love you." That would be Grant in Dream Land featured in the picture. How can you say no to that?

Hey, What ya think about the awesome new header I have for my blog? I have to shout out a great big THANKS to Michelle Geautreaux from One Creative Mama. She attached it to an e-mail she sent out about my new store opening and I loved it so much I had to place it here. Michelle is a very talented artist from Lockport, La. She was a feature artist at Art After Dark in Houma this past Saturday. She comes up with "out of the box" beauties. Not only is she One Creative Mama but she is One Talented Chic! I will post her blog information tomorrow night (having trouble pulling it up at the moment).

Last but not least and certainly before I forget, I did just put in another order. I have a new paper line coming into the store... TO BE ANNOUNCED LATER (tease) but I will tell you that if you like Vintage flair, you will love this. I also have a new order of Glossy Accents and Zip Dry coming in as well for those who requested. Hopefully all the Ranger products (Alcohol Inks, Perfect Pearls, Crackle Paints and Stickles) will be in this week as well.

Good Night!,

I just called to say I love you

Today I was sitting in the crop room at the store and my phone rang. It was Matt calling from Offshore. He never is able to just call during the day, but today he did. Not once, but twice and almost back to back. The first call was to check on how I was feeling since I am suppose to be off my foot for the next 10 days (yeah right) and then about 10 minutes later he called again just to say I love you.
A flood of emotions came rushing back through out the day after that second phone call. I'm not sure why, it just happened. Maybe that was God's way of letting me know how much I take my hubby for granted. I don't mean to do it but I think it does happen and it goes unnoticed by none other than myself.
With him being gone all the time I just find myself wishing he was here to help out on the things that really aren't important, like cutting the grass and taking out the trash and the helping with the kids when I have had about as much as I can handle. But the truth is when I look back is that he is ALWAYS here for the important things. He was here when the babies were born, and for birthdays and graduations, when my mother died he was there (late) but he was there, he takes the kids to school and picks them up when he is home, he cooks a big breakfast if there is time or not before school, he kisses bumps and bruises, he gives hugs and wipes tears, he loves rocking Maddie even though she is too big, he's a pirate,Transformer, and some times Luke Skywalker if Grant imagines that is what he should be, he folds all the laundry and he bakes the best Pineapple upside down cake in the world and all I have to do is ask, he's a hard worker and great provider and when he hugs you he means it and today I realized that he calls to say I love you when he knows I need to hear it.
Thanks Babe... I love you too! Thanks for everything.

What are u doing on 09-09-09 @ 9

WHAT ARE YOU DOING ON 09-09-09 @ 9:00?

I am sitting her2 admiring the new Prima Vintage flowers that arrived today. Yet again I went overboard on the ordering... Does one little Scrapbook Store need 20 different styles of Prima Flowers? I must say YES because these are simply beautiful!

On a non-scrap related topic, My Kennedi got her braces off today! She will be nine in November and she is so Happy that she will not have those braces on for the upcoming holidays! WAY TO GO KENNEDI! On the sweet side, she brought in her favorite doll (which was my first Cabbage Patch 24 years ago) and her Orthodontist is putting braces on it for her. Of course she is thrilled about that.

Have a good night everyone!

Everyone who knows me will tell you that I am practically obsessed with Chipboard, Fall and Halloween papers, Embellishments etc. I JUST CAN'T HELP IT! In my defense, I have to say that what has come in I have not seen anywhere else so I think it is totally justified!

I will also have Vintage Prima Flowers coming in on Thursday for everyone who asked. I am totally excited about that too. These beautiful flowers will be wonderful for layouts, purses, headbands etc.

Last but not least... I will be having our first Scrappy Kids Night Out on Sept. 26th. It will be from 5:00-8:00 p.m and the cost is $30.00. This includes a Scrappy Kids T-shirt, Crafts and Pizza.
