I am up way to late!

I should be in bed right now and instead I am blogging...

So I took a break from scrapbooking this week. No new products from my CT's and really no mojo! I did make a few pages tonight though. First is for the Inspirational Challenge At DDE for October. I used a picture of Tally from last October and the Wallflower kit from DDE!

Ok I just have to show what the picture looked like before I altered it for that LO. I lighted it with levels and curves, then I warmed it up with Michelle's Warming Action to bring back the color from being washed out when I lightened it. I also used a noise reduction program. Love how it turned out in the LO!

So after that LO I was wanting to scrap some more. I downloaded one of Jasmines older kits to go with a picture I took of Tally going towards Matt last weekend. I also used some more of Michelle's actions. Love her B&W's and the vignette!

Last bit of scrapping stuff... Miss Mint is having a special until Halloween!

Can you believe it's been a week since I posted last. Life has been pretty boring. Tally is teething, which has caused a lot of clingy whiny days. I've been learning how to use Matt's camera, which has been interesting. I'm getting the hang of it and have gotten a few awesome pics. Which I might post tomorrow after I resize them to put on Tallys site.

I guess it is time to reveal what Guest CT I am now on... Gina Cabrera's DDE! I am so excited since she is one of my favorite designers!!! So expect some pages to be popping up this week with her stuff. I even have one to share right now!

And one with Atomic Cupcakes new stuff!

Oh and some more good news... my EHD is on it's way back home and everything is in working order! WOOHOO!!!

Forgot to give a Happy Thanksgiving to my Canadian friends!!! Posted by Picasa

A little bit of this and that...

I have been slacking on my LO's this week. Just haven't had the drive for it. Maybe I need some new pictures to work with, so that is one of my goals today. Get some new pictures ;) I did work on 1 page and it's not my norm but I like it. I used stuff from Atomic Cupcake. This picture is the only picture we got of Tally at the fair last weekend. She looks so cute in the cowgirl hat. LOL

Mindy has a new kit at Scrapbook Graphics called Autumn Time. Haven't had a chance to mess with it yet but I will in the next couple of days! Already have a few pics from last fall that I'm going to use. Hoping to get to the pumpkin patch in the next couple of weeks for new pics!

Yesterday I went to Pass Your Plate and got this months meals. Which are...
Lasagna Verdi With Bolognese Sauce
Taco Puffs
Spicy Southwestern Chicken Stew
Lemon Artichoke Chicken
Italian Meatball Subs
Grilled Rosemary Pork Chops
Baked Salmon Croquettes with Bow Tie Pasta
Beef Stroganoff
Cheesy Bacon-Wrapped Chicken
Tilapia with Lemon Dill Cream
Tonight we are having the Baked Salmon Croquettes with Bow Tie Pasta, Salad and some other veggie. I am in love with the frozen veggies that microwave in their package! LOL See so easy even my husband can make dinner! (and he does... a lot)

Well I really think that is all for today. I need to change my banner back to My Boring Life. LOL Enjoy the rest of the weekend!

So super excited!!!

I'm not going to officially announce until I get all the information but I am possibly going to be a Guest CT member for one of my favorite designers this month. Out of the blue I got a PM at SBB today with her asking me. So super excited!!!! More on this breaking news hopefully within the next week or so!

Two new pages with Miss Mints new kits. I can not believe this was my baby girl just a year ago. She has grown so much. *sigh*

Ok I also re-worked my Naps LO. Not sure why but I like the simple version better.

Well with the new look pictures I have... I am definitely due for a some more about me pages. That may be what I do later today. Quick question for everyone... I need a new author to read. I LOVE mystery writers, usually female. For instance Linda Fairstein and Lisa Scottoline (read all of theirs) I would like a new author and would love some input. I like the ones that have the same characters, series I guess you would call it. So if you have any that you would recommend please do! Thanks!!!

Going to enjoy the rest of my alone time (Tally is with my mom and Matt is at work)
