Saturday! I went to Hobby Lobby to buy one sheet of cardstock..how sad is that? DH spent more than I did!? He bought some model paint and since the paper was on sale 5 for $11 I went ahead and bought 5 sheets. I got my order from Creative Crafts and Stickers today! I used a "button" that I bought..sad thing is it is really just epoxy. Good thing I was buying with a Gift Certificate!! That is the downside of online shopping...you don't always get what you expect. I hope it does not yellow over time like the last clear epoxy tiles I bought did. And the sad thing is I bought every size they offered in both round and square. The quote rubon on is from Provo Craft and the little butterflies are Basic Grey.

Today's tag was made from a piece of scrap paper...I had even stamped it ages ago so it was just so easy to put a flower on the top and call it finished! I spent my day cleaning like a mad woman, the house looks good..at least it did the last time I went through it. I am so sleepy, I tried to take a short nap while waiting on the big boys to get out of school but the freaking toddler licked my eyelid!!?? I decided it was best not to close them again. OK I still think it is strange talking about me but this tag is long and it has to have some pretty words beside it so....

Sadly I was too busy yesterday to make a tag or blog so today I am uploading the front and back. On all my tags the back has to look nice since I am journaling on them..no brad prongs showing or stitching. On today's tag I had to add a smaller tag because I had too much to say. I saw an overlay with circles and I thought that would be fun to do but then I decided to skip a step and just put circles straight on my cardstock. Real quick and easy!

Saturday! I got to go to Hobby Lobby! They didn't have the album and trimmer I was hoping to find but I did get some stickers (the nice glitterly ones on here) some brads, buttons, ribbons and tabs..all on sale! The charms were on sale but they had changed the packaging so they tried to tell me they were not..I hate it when they do that, makes you feel like a thief. I cut up a quote sticker and played with my sewing machine too, what a great way to spend the day..shopping and scrapping!!

Some days are just that way! DH came home sick, two of the big boys needed their booster shots, the van is out of gas..but hey it is Friday so all isn't too bad! I have been wanting to use these little Sizzix dies for awhile xerxia issued a challenge for an ATC http://www.acharmingplace.net/forums/showthread.php?p=222761#post222761 so I knew what I wanted to do!

I cut the clock hands for a swap I was in and really wanted to use a set so my tag for today is a flower clock! I typed "almost time" over and over and printed the flower over that. Can you tell I can't wait!!?? And see that pretty pink butterfly brad? That is a yummy MOD Blackbird brad...another thing I really wanted to use. My clock hands moved when I flipped it upside down to scan...I have them closer to spring than winter.

It was another beautiful day!! Maybe Spring really is right around the corner?? I hope so!!! My tag today is based on a "card map" by Becky Fleck http://www.pagemaps.com/mar07cardmaps.htm I was cutting clock hands for a swap I am in and wanted to use the "dots" from the center of them so I cut out this little ladybug with my sidekick.

Oh cool day...one of the boys got an invitation to a luncheon at the governor's mansion for achieving a 4.0 grade point average! On my tag today I just inked it, stamped some dragonflies, wrote on it, and added a Sizzix dragonfly that I cut from KI Memories paper....I was excited that my ribbon matched the colors in the paper.

Long busy day...not super happy with my tag. It was going to be my tag for Friday but I just wasn't happy with it then so I put it away. I didn't have time to start from scratch so I pulled it out again and added the flower stems and circle clip. Maybe it will grow on me. I did have a really good mail day! Two packages one from Connie at Rocky Mountain Hobbies http://forum.rockymountainhobbies.com/showthread.php?t=3492 and one from Lisa at A Peek into Yesterday http://www.apeekintoyesterday.com/scrapbooking_forums/viewtopic.php?t=10769&highlight= Really made my day! I need to get busy and send Thank You cards and a RAK or two to make someone else's day.

I got a nice surprise today! A $25 gift certificate from Creative Crafts and Stickers for winning their Feb contest with my Love layout http://creativecraftsandstickers.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=6911&cat=674 I am soooooo excited!!! I saw a post about the contest on the pubscalls blog and went to enter. When I got there almost 50 images were up so I almost didn't even try. But since that is the reason I was there I went for it...WoW talk about lucky. Just goes to show it never hurts to try. Now I just have to figure out what fun goodies to buy! And to end the day in a grand way we had pie and watched a movie..life is sweeeeeeeet! So lots of fun journaling on the back of my tag tonight. I used walnut inked tags, 7gypsies paper, and a button.

Today was an awesome day! A couple weekends ago I had fun at an online crop not only did I get some layouts finished but I won a prize from http://www.scraplovers.com/. Well, that prize came today!! What is even more exciting was it had something I have been wanting!!! A mini pink Fastenater! Awhile back I read a tip that you could use the bars without one so I bought a pack and found out it wasn't so easy. Sure you can set it like a concho with a mouse pad and carefully bend the prongs IF you can get one broke free from the bar of staples...very difficult to do without poking your finger or bending them so I have been looking for one of these! Even checked eBay but I just wasn't ready to fork over $10 including shipping. I saw the big one at Hobby Lobby but it was huge so this little package today made me super happy!!!! I couldn't wait to use it so I attached my ribbon with it. Christina also sent a Herma (it is always nice to have extra adhesive) Cutterbee scissors..these little guys are SHARP I love them. I have a pair but I am thrilled to have another. I always take stuff to scrap while I wait on the boys. I don't know how many times I have forgot to take them with me so now I have a pair I can leave in the van! And last but not least a black Zig pen! What awesome timing..mine was almost dry. So a very practical package that ROCKED!!! I am so very grateful!!!!
The "dots" on my flower are very light blue translucent tiny glass beads..not sure why they scanned so dark...and the staple bar is silver.

It was a busy day so I needed to come up with something real simple and quick. I have a ton of these Making Memories vellum tags and I thought it would be neat to be able to see the journaling peeking through the back. I just cut a few squares, added little flowers, rhinestones, a butterfly charm from http://www.acharmingplace.com/ and added a little flight trail with a glitter pen. It was fun taking a little time to scrap after such a day!

I hope to make a tag everyday this month. This one is for March 1st, I wrote about my day on the back. When I saw the circles on the paper I thought they would make cute flowers so I cut them out and added buttons for the center. I Like looking at things and finding other ways to use them. Like the paisleys turned leaves on my mini album.
March first! The moon is up it is beautiful out! I have been thinking of blogging for awhile but I have never been a "me" person so what does one blog about when they would much rather listen than talk? I thought and thought and then... decided I would blog about my passion...scrapping!
