Oh man, when I saw TAAFOMFT was having their final challenge, I knew I had to play along.  I remember participating when the site was brand new- so I had to make something for the last challenge too!
This is my current favorite collection—- my paper stash!!!  If you would have told me 5 or 6 years ago I would own this much fancy paper, I would have laughed at you!  Who collects paper?  Well, I do now!!  🙂

I’ll certainly miss TAAFOMFT, but I’m sure from time to time I’ll check the blog out to be inspired by the past challenges!

Thanks for stopping by  🙂



If I’m Not Around…..

………I’m probably at the newsstand with my nose in a magazine!  Since I was a really little girl, I’ve always had a fascination with magazines.  My Mom got me hooked on mags, which I think she regretted because I would want to look all over town for the latest issues!  I think it started with Barbie magazine, then all the teen ones, and now I love fashion and craft books!  I mostly subscribe to my faves now, but I can still sniff out all the new issues at the store and I have to stop & look through them.
 It’s a special dorky talent of mine.   🙂

So, considering my obsession, I couldn’t just pick one fave, for TAAFOMFT‘s current challenge. I just included my faves- like Lucky, Elle, InStyle, Nylon, Creating Keepsakes & Paper Crafts.

Here’s my layout, ‘Magazine Hound’

In The Cards…

I loved this challenge from TAAFOMFT— what is your fave game?.  Mine would have to be card games– Rummy, Uno, Card Sharks; the possibilities are endless with cards.  I remember playing cards with my grandparents.  I also remember in the summertime during my high school years, my Mom & I would play cards in the afternoon while eating chocolate chip cookies and watching soaps. 🙂  Those were the days!

Here’s my layout, ‘In The Cards’

Have a great weekend!!
 Thanks for stopping by 🙂

Be You!

I thought quite awhile about what quote I would choose for TAAFOMFT‘s latest challenge. I am a total nerd for collecting quotes! I finally chose a Dr. Seuss one, because really, a lot of good lessons can be found in his books. 🙂
“Be who you are and say what you feel because those who mind don’t matter and those who matter don’t mind.”
You can’t go wrong by just being yourself!!!!!

Thanks for stopping by 🙂

My Fave Scrapper!

I loved the newest challenge over at TAAFOMFT!
Who is my favorite scrapper? Well, of course, it’s Dear Lizzy (Elizabeth Kartchner)! If you have read my blog for a while, you might remember I also chose her for my favorite blog as well. She is just so inspiring- I love her scrapbooking projects, classes, and her American Crafts line too!
 Here’s my layout, “Lizzy”.

Thanks for stopping by—- happy scrapping 🙂

2010 Countdown

Oh my, less than two weeks until 2011 is here! I really can’t believe it.

Over these final days of 2010, I’m going to countdown my favorites of this year.

First, I’m going to share my favorite layout of 2010. This is always a hard choice, it’s like choosing your favorite kid, you know. Later on, I’ll share my top 10 layouts of the year, but here’s my favorite of the year, for TAAFOMFT‘s current challenge.

I chose ‘Flew’. I love this layout because it is so me. I love the quote so much too. I love the girliness of it, and I used some of my favorite supplies too (Prima, Dear Lizzy, Glimmer Mist).

MC’s The Best!!!

Hi everyone!!! Hope your week is off to a good start…. we’re currently blanketed in snow here. So, this was a good time for me to have fun scrappin!! I haven’t had hardly any time to scrap lately. Boo!

This layout here is for TAAFOMFT‘s current challenge- who is your favorite celebrity? Mine has been Mariah Carey for forever 🙂 She is so talented- I just love her!!! Since she has a new Christmas album out (check it out; it’s awesome!), I made a festive layout using her cover art!

On Thin Ice…

Hello all!!

I wanted to stop by again today to show you the layout I made for TAAFOMFT‘s current challenge– what is your favorite sport? Now, I’ve never been real coordinated when it comes to playing sports, but I do like to watch from afar….. My favorite sport has probably always been Figure Skating. I started watching it on TV when I was about 9, right before the whole Nancy Kerrigan/Tonya Harding saga. It was a great time to learn about the sport because coverage was everywhere! I also still have a little ‘scrapbook’ I put together with all the news articles from the early 90’s. I have to admit I don’t watch as much now, but if it’s on, I just love to watch! I love the artistry of the skaters!

The Flock

Hello all!!

I just wanted to share this layout I’ve made for TAAFOMFT‘s current challenge (which I loved btw!!)! The challenge is to scrap about your favorite pet- well, I just couldn’t choose ONE pet, so I made a layout FULL of birds!!!! All of the birds on my page belonged to my family at one point or another. Some belonged to my parents before I was even born, and some are my current flock members!
P.S.–Now, birds are not the only type of pet we’ve owned; we once had a dog named Hoover- I’ll have to scrap about him later 🙂


Happy almost weekend everyone!!
Just wanted to share this layout for TAAFOMFT‘s current challenge- who is your fave fictional character? Mine is Carrie from Sex and the City. Although technically, I guess she didn’t begin as ‘fictional’, she’s still my favorite character. I just loved the show & how she got to live a fashion filled life in NYC! Here’s my layout, celebrating the show:
