We celebrated this little guy's 6th birthday! Not so little anymore :( He would only pose for photo's along side of Uncle Joe. And....he's missing his 2 front teeth!! Just in time for Christmas.

Someone else who is quite smitten with Uncle Joe. Seriously, this relationship is the cutest thing ever!

I have to admit, I adore this card!!
I usually have a hard time with large circles,

this blog post is brought to you by the number 26.
and the colour black.

That's just an inside joke that only myself will get.

lame, yes. lol
You'll know what I mean if I post the photos from
by 26th bday party.

Oh the memories of being 26.
I loved that year!
Here is my card for Mission 026.
You can see what all the girls from the card team created,
and find the concepts we used at Mission to Create

It's hard to tell, but the bird is a mirror
from Dollarama. The labybug is a pin from Mission to
Create's September sponser, My Little Bit of Whimsy.
The fence is my new Martha Stewart border punch!!
I also used my Hero Arts cloud stamp,
and some CI real wood paper. Lots of my fave stuff:)

Now here is my card for Twisted Card Sketch 026.
The twist was circles, and you can find the sketch at
Twisted Sketches HERE

My forever friend, Kristi, made me a CD for my 26th bday,
titled 26. It was my fave songs at that time.
I still listen to it!

Highlights include:
You Make me Sick by Pink
Must be the Money by Nelly
Angel by Shaggy

What a long time ago.

the Salsa Burger from Boon Burger:
Canada's first all vegetarian burger cafe!!

This place is my dream. They have so many burger choices.
And I can eat everything on the menu!
The fries are divine too...oven baked and topped
with sesame seeds.

Too bad most of my friends don't want to join me :(

This month, Mission to Create is excited to have

as one of our sponsers. Stephanie creates the cutest
fun and whimsical buttons and embellishments!

Here is my layout for Mission 026!

On my birthday, I dragged Joe and my mom to
Kildonan Park for a walk and some photos.
I grew up pretty close to this park and hardly ever
spend time there anymore. It was fun :)

Check out the sweet ladybug pin and textured button
courtesy of My Little Bit of Whimsy.

If you want to win some buttons AND a prize from our 2nd September sponser (check back to the Mission blog to see who it is) let's see your layout or card using at least 3 of the 5 concepts found HERE.

Staycation - Day 4

I finally go to go berry picking!!
I have been wanting to go for 3 weeks now.

The strawberries were all done which meant
we had to pick raspberries :)

YUMMO my fave!!

Joe doesn't like them much so more for me!
He did think he was the bestest picker ever though.

I didn't do much else except a few errands.

oh ya, I started to watch the movie, The Meerkats,
but I had to stop before one of those cutie babies
got eaten, or killed some other way.
I was literally sitting on the the edge of my seat,
and my heart was racing. Too stressful for me!

Staycation - Day 3

Spent a few hours with this little doll!
and her brothers...but once again, they were being camera shy.

She likes to wear the flower on top of her head. lol

She really is the cutest thing ever!
and I love that she loves me :)
Her hair is gorgeous...I wish I got a good photo of it.

Staycation - Day 2

Went to the Forks!

Managaed to bribe Joe into going with the the promise of
some (very greasy) fish n'chips.

Then we wandered around the Antique Market.
Something that we both enjoy doing. Imagine that!! lol

Stopped at a new thrift store on the way home. No treasures found.

Snapped this photo of a dragonfly taking a break on the house.

Staycation - Day 1

Highlight of today was ice cream from Sub Zero!
I indulged in a Raspberry Truffle Parfait.
Joe kept it simple.

Mission 022 at Mission Create went up yesterday.
Here is my take. Loooooved the combo of concepts!
Photo is from my bday :)

other stuff:
The beagle was good today!

I'm waiting on Joe to bring me home a slurpee.
(yes, I already had an ice cream today, but seriously
it's 9pm and still 29C outside and 28 inside my house)

I hope to go berry picking and thrifting tomorrow.

Yay for holidays!!

Sunday, July 25, 2010

sooooo much to catch up on

It's been awhile, but I am back!

2 weeks ago was my bday...
had soooo much fun (I'll show you pics later).

Then the next day I got some terrible news which really affected me.
Lost all mojo and interest in doing anything but napping.

Now, mojo is back!!
Good news is that I am on holidays and have time to catch up on blog-land.

First up...the bad beagle award.
Not the first time he sported blue toes either.
Stole a pen while I was in the shower.

From last Sunday....Mission to Create Card #021

Twisted Missions

some cards to share...

Mission to Create Card #020 went up today.
Here is what I came up with.

went up yesterday.
The twist was gold.
I don't have very much gold anything,
but Nicole gave me some paper and it worked out perfect!

I made this for a friend to give to her son's busdriver.
So simple but so cute, I think!

and now a request...


These clips are by Making Memories. I need them for a project that I'm helping a friend with. I have searched every store, googled, ebayed, etsyed. I can not find them anywhere!

Maybe someone has a pack or 2 at home that they want to sell? Or maybe you know where I can find them.

Mission 20 and more

Mission 0020 is up!

So hard for me to do a layout NOT about people or animals. lol

Check out all of the concepts for this
Mission #20 here.
See who our fab guest designer is and what
the other MC girls did. Love how even when we all use
the same 5 concepts...all of our pages are so different!
You have until July 7th to upload your layout
if you want a chance to win some Nikki Sivils paper!

I love this ledger paper by The Girls Paperie,
and the Artisan Tape by Pink Paislee...

need to find more of both for sure!!


and some cards :)
