Card, Project 365, Memory Works and MORE!!!

Ok friends! Grab a drink and get comfy... 'cause I've got some sharing to do and I've made another one of my famous looong posts ;)
:) Thanks to Tammi of Tropical Dreams, I received my first order from Ladybug and Friends this past Wednesday!!! They are based in Norway! Other than parts of the US, Canada and England - I have never received mail from anywhere else in the world - the boys and I were very excited to see the package, postage and different looking address on the envelope, lol! It was a learning experience for all of us ;)
I used my Copics and Spica glitter markers to color in this Rachel Anne Miller stamp called "Under the Blanket"... I also purchased another Miller stamp called "I Love You" and two Joan Elliott stamps: "Flower Fairy" and "Rain or Shine"... y'all will be seeing them soon! ;)

Here's the inside too!

Here's what I made at Scrapbook Night at Nicky's school! My first paper bag album!

I was trying to make myself use some of the boyish patterned papers I've been holding onto for months! LOL! But I wasn't sure as to how well I was going to do... so I stopped at Michael's and found this lil 2-sided paper packet for $3.99!!! I don't remember who made it :( but I love it!!!

Here's what the tag on the cover looks like up close...
Here's the other side of the same tag...

I have been blessed with so many good scrappy friends...

Thank you Bev!!!
This comes from my very good friend, Bev! Unfortunately, she does not have a blog {yet!}, but I wanted to share what beautiful and special things she sent me :)
Isn't that the greatest ribbon/string?!! and aren't those the cutest lil bears in the world???
Here's a close up of those bears!
I had bought a few of those bears myself a few weeks ago :)
Carmen of cks*paper*scraps makes and sells them on ebay!!! They are sooo adorable and sweet! I must contain myself, lol! I must make time to use these cuddlies ;) soon!!!
Here's a few pics for Project 365... Today, my sister and I went to meet sweet Alison the owner of Scrapaholics in Hempstead, NY... who is in the process of making her new blog - yea!!! Ok, look very closely... yes!!! Alison is a HUGE Twilight fan too!!! That is how we met! Her store was having a lil Twilight project contest and I won a prize!!!
Thank you Alison!!!
Not a very good pic... but the first pic is another famous Picasso on my living room wall!!! Is it adorable, lil innocent face #1 or #2 that did the crime??? LOL! Let's just say that the culprit did a lil time in his room for about 10 minutes... when he was done crying, he came out and said, "I feel better now, thank you!" lol!
I, and some of you too, have been waiting for this for a very looong time!!! MemoryWorks is finally putting the finishing touches to their 2009/2010 catalog!!! The rough-draft is available as a PDF file! If you are interested in downloading the catty and/or want a new catty to be mailed to you, please email me so I can send the info to you asap!!! ;)

LOL! That was a long post but I can relate . . .my post are always long. I'm always surprised that people actually read what I write sometimes. LOL!

First of all your card is adorable. I love Rachel Ann Miller stamps and the image on your card is way cute. Beautiful job coloring the image. . .

Next. . .your paper bag is fantastic. The last time I believe I made one was two years ago. Love the boy theme to your album and all the inserts!! Great job!

How nice of Bev to give you such a wonderful RAK!! Your photo with Allison is very pretty. You look gorgeous.

Your drawing on your wall is a work of art! LOL! Your sons are adorable. . .love the photos!!

I'm waiting for my order of the 3rd Twilight book. It should arrive on Tuesday. I'll tell you what I think of it!!

Adorable card, cute image, she's so sweet in her blanket with the elephant! :) Oh you got a fairy too, can't wait to see what you make with her! Wowza, you paperbag book is amazing, love love it!! Great papers and tags! And those bears, OME aren't those adorable!! And LOL -"I feel better now, thank you", too funny! ~Hugs

I just love the way you colour with your Copics!!

The paper bag album is a great idea, and that IS great 'boy' paper.

hehe, I once was a Picasso on the walls. But I only did it once, because I had to clean up my mess with Fantastik and sponge...I never drew on the wall again!

I'm going to go 'follow' your Sissy Scrap Challenges, I can't wait to see what you guys come up with! :)

CUTE paper bag album! And you remind me that I need to update my P365...

Jami {sgtStamper} said...

Wow....Such cool projects!! I love that paperbag album!!! And the pics of the kids are great! When I was little, I used to hide behind my bedroom door and draw on the wall with a big fat black SHARPIE! Of course, my door was always open when my Mom was in there, so she didn't see my "collection of artwork" until the realtor who sold our house asked her if she planned on painting over it!! LOL!!!!

big hugs...
