Something special for someone special.........

Posting a picture of 

Brandy's birthday gift that I made, gave her then took it back. I know indian giver.hahaha... Well I took pictures while we were out celebrating her birthday ...... Then I developed them and put them in her book.. Now she can have her present back! 

Our girl day was so much fun! When we are all together out and about we always get complements like.... "Can I hang out with you guys?" "You girls look like you are having a blast"... ect..and so on.... No matter how stressful life can get.... I can always count on my friends to make me laugh! Each one brings something different to the friendship... Through good times and bad may our friendships last two life times! Peace oUt!

Boo 2 You....

Another pictureless layout...haha... This one is Tyler's Halloween page. He was a random scary creature... So I was able to use cool Halloween paper. I used the eerie basic grey paper, some spider web stuff, paper tearing and inking.... Silver brads to hold my web. Big plastic spiders that came in the pack with the web (which I found 90% off) Also embellished w/stickers that came on a 12x12 sheet. A little glossy accent for texture and this layout is a wrap!

Panthers on the prowl.........

I did this soccer layout @ Amy's crop last night. Was not feeling to creative! It took me like 5 hours to do this one page...eekk. I am so behind on printing pictures. I have layouts just patiently waiting for pics...

Ghouls Just wanna have Fun!

Although some of our regular Wednesday scrappin pals were not able to play with us today they were there in spirit! We missed you guys!  Us girls managed to get two ,two page layouts done, take a field trip to the scrapbook store and have a yummy lunch of gumbo and very white rice.haha. We all worked on this layout together and we even used a technique Amy taught us... You can make a flower out of cupcake wrappers. All you do is cut splice toward the center evenly all the way around and wala you have a flower! So pick up those 90% off Halloween goodies and start embellishing!  I am not a big fan of scrappin before pics are developed but it seems to be working out well. You just look at the layout and order the sizes to fit.  Thanks for peeking!!! Check back soon ...........

(TERROR)ific Time!

This is a cute little layout that Jamie, Deanna, Brandy and I created today using the Halloween line by Making Memories. I calls for a 5X7 picture and a collage of wallets. We also used chip board shapes, bingo cards and googly eyes on our bat. The decorative edge scissors made a come back on this page as we used it to shape the edge of our orange paper. A cute bling spider hangs from the web... He came in a goodie bag that we got on our field trip to Simply Scrappin! Boy did we hit the jackpot with the awesome sales Elizabeth had today! Thanks... And Happy Birthday 2 u! 
Also picked up these cute thicker letters at SS. When I put my pics I will repost . Thanks for looking... Many more Halloween layouts to come!

Last Arkansas Page... Book complete! & A little boohooing session ha

Last week us girls got together for our weekly Wednesday crop. As usual it was great! The food yum .. Jamie out did herself (when they come to my house they get left overs..ha ha).. But most of all the friendships that us girls share! I know I say it often how thankful I am for my friends. I cant even imagine my life with out ALL of them. Deanna, Jamie, Brandy, Heather,Monica and yes you to Amy lou... At one point or another in my life each on of you guys have been there to pick me back up when I was down. This past year of my life has been pretty rough. I got the chance to get very close to someone only to watch her slip away.. Now only three short months later we are going thru the same thing with my father in law. Then throw in the heart aches of raising a teenager in todays world ...... Wow!  So again to all the wonderful women in my life "THANK YOU" for always being there to encourage, give advice but most of lend a shoulder! I love you guys...........................................

Tyler goes to high school!

Well if you are a parent of a teen.... boy... you know that it gets harder and harder to photograph them. I did manage to get a smile..... The color in this picture is a little blah. Looks better in person. I used the boyfriend line by  cosmo cricket!

Are you my mother take 2....

I do not do one page layouts often... but I did not have allot of pics so this will be a first or a last page of a book. A simple page about a little bird family that lived in our tree!

Nite of Spooks

Us girls scrapped all day Wed and I had fun with the Pink Paisley Halloween line. The pictures are not the greatest much cuter in person. This year will be our second annual Halloween hay ride starting out at our home with fun and games and end back up here with food and more fun.....Sooooo I am sure there will be many pics.... trying to get a head start on the layouts... Eat your heart out Mozeleum! Just Picking .... Love Ya!

Happy Halloween......

This was a very easy and fast layout to do. I used the Fancy Pants Halloween line. On one of the coordinates was a sheet of journaling blocks..... sooooo.... I realized that they made a perfect wallet matt!  Hand cut a few embelly's added some goggly  eyes to the bats a little journal block and it was a done deal. Except of course to add a few pics.. Which we are sure to have many!

Yeahhhh.... Arkansas

Wow...... What a great trip! us girls and one stud pony! I have never laughed so hard in all of my life! To have a great family is luck (& I am very lucky), but to chose friends that make your life so fun in good times and bad is an awesome thing! To be together for this trip was like turning back the clock to the teenage days of laying in bed chatting laughing and just being silly. The stud in the pic is my grandfather who came along for the ride to see his son and cook for us every night. He gave the girls hell and they gave it right back.  I will post some other random pics from the trip. Hope you enjoy checking them out.

River Walk

The river walk in Shreveport is half way to Hot Springs. It is a great place to stop, shop and eat. And we did all three! Then back in the ride to watch chick flicks and burn up some highway!

Mule Ride

This was our mode of transportation down to the back 40 across the pond and through the field to my uncles house were our meals were prepared nightly. Jokes were told.... songs were sung and good times has!

Scrapbook Corner

Did we die and go to heaven or what????????? We found a store in Little Rock that was jam packed with scrapbook goodness!. We spent over an hour oooohhin and awwwin and of course buyin!

Very Hot Water..................

This water was so hot! You could not keep your toes in for more than a second.


The first evening there my Grandma had a fire going and we roasted our own hot dogs. then off to bed to rest for our big day of shopping.
We walked the beautiful down town area, and did the tourist stuff. Went in and out of many wonderful shops. Soaked our feet in the hot springs. the last pic is us at Star Trax Studio in down town hot springs, were we recorded a music video to Proud Mary by Tina Turner and our very own Jamie was on the mike.... And her trusty back up dancers! We will laugh at that video for years to come.

Faith Crop Project

What can say..... AMY you did it again! This past Friday I attended Amy's Faith 365 Crop. This time I brought along my gang some who had never been to one of Amy's crops....... And we all had a supper fun time. Between the projects.... prizes... little how to make and take goodies... to the yummy sweets and treats... This girl always seems to out do herself. We all told her thank you a hundred times.... And we had to apologize for getting a little loud and out of control. 

The pics above are my blue jean pocket book that I made at the crop. And I also did a 4th of July layout as well. I guess the rest of the time was spent laughing hysterically and stuffing my face with Petite Fours which I was the lucky lady that got to bring the left overs home and my kids and hubby tooo could not rest until they were all gone! Keep up the gooooood work.................Amy Lou
